"Learning at Aspen University was an amazing journey in my life. I determined taking the course of the doctorate in education with Aspen School of Education with a great offer of an affordable payment program and flexible class schedules for a full-time worker like me. Lecturers/Instructors were very supportive, particularly I could not complete my graduate dissertation without endless support and motivation from the Dissertation Committee Members. I definitely love Aspen!"

"I am only satisfied in that I graduated and became a nurse but it was not through great instruction from the school. Anyone thinking of going here needs to consider what they are getting into. They make it sound all wonderful and how supportive they are....all lies. They lie to you every step of the way, do crap to help you and instead blow you off. They love to change rules depending on how it fits them and yet the students are expected to just do it even if it doesn't follow protocol. You basically learn on your own, get no help, no direction mainly because the professors don't know either. There are a couple of good instructors there but they are adjunct. The full time (with exception of one) are horrible...they will not work with you if you experience a problem but will fail you in a second. Extremely unprofessional, charge for classes you don't need and do not add to learning but sure put 200% I. When it gets close to graduation because they are so worried about their NCLEX pass rate but could care less in the previous 18 months. You may have to wait longer but if you want a quality education....don't go here!!!"

"This was my first time doing an online program. I will say that I am quite surprised that the program overall was relatively fast. This program took a little less than two years with a full time job as a CCRN. I did Masters of Nursing with a specialty in informatics. Worth it 100%. Pros: The professors were all great and reasonable! Granted I slacked on some of the assignments and got a B, but it I still graduated with honors. Price is key! A school that is CCNE verified and well under $15,000 for the whole program did it for me. Cons: Finding your own preceptor. Despite finding your own preceptor, the experience made it worth while because it helped in the capstone project."

"I had an amazing experience with Aspen. They have an affordable payment program and classes are structured that works around a full time career. All teachers were excellent and aided whenever needed. I also loved that classes started every 2 weeks and you could go at your own pace."

"I enjoyed taking courses and the Master's of Nursing program. I have learned a lot in each course and found the professors attentive and professional. I work full time and found it easy to fit one course at a time into my schedule. The open enrollment process with courses starting every two weeks worked well. The majority of the courses had their assignments posted for the entire session, allowing me to start the next week's assignment if I knew personal obligations would affect the time needed to devote to the class. I have told others of your program and will continue to do so."

"I would highly recommend it. One can take the class at your own pace. I learned a lot that will help in the enhancement of both one’s professional and personal growth. The writing and critical thinking skills will improve a lot. If you are a person who likes to do research work, Aspen University is the right place. Thank you."

"Vary poor administrative and technical support for online program difficult to utilize......and professor demonstrated total lack of concern toward correcting my ignorance throughout his ongoing responses to my discussion posts. Posts for which I received 100 consistently. He was derelict in not pointing out I was not completing the weekly assignments throughout the entire 8 week course. I unknowingly.did not submit required assignments never.realuzing there were subtopics took a phone call from an adviser at the end of the course to point out I had not fulfilled coure requirements throughout the 8 week session ..I refuted such as received 100 on all my submitted posts and was amazed, could not believe it when she went into the class program and opened up a column headed content..and there were. by week, listed assignments I wS not privy to, had not completed, nor submitted. Unsettling and dismayed and embarrassing to say the least. The advisor was also troubled that the professor had had ample opportunity to share with me my lack of assigned submissions and had refrained from doing so..thus i had not fulfilled weekly requirements of the course. As stated, never. never addressed during entire 8 week course by professor. The advisor did not identify until one week prior to ed of course via an email which I did not receive due to holidays. So all in all a very embarrassing situation especially for a 3.9 GPA from Vanderbilt. The issue was i had not received adequate orientation of the online teaching program and was unaware of a listing of weekly assignments for a course in addition to completed posts. i cannot recommend their is great in cost and time frame...provides no technical support period nor on line leaning program support as well. My experience so disappointing I withdrew from program. So embarrassing... May I add. do not expect committed professors either. One remark to me when I wrote more than 250 words in a post was he had 60 other students so be sensitive of his work load."

"Aspen University helped me accomplish a life goal. I was both able to afford the tuition and study at my own pace thanks to the online format. The instructors were excellent, teaching not only course content but scholarly writing as well. I work full-time and am raising a grand-daughter, so the flexibility was a considerable draw. I am happy to report two of my peers are now attending Aspen University. I highly recommend and hope to continue my studies at Aspen."

"The program structure is great; however, the professors in the program are not professional. If you seek a degree higher than your BA, I highly recommend that you try a different institution because if you have any questions, they will not be answered on time or before assignments are due. Some professors won't even reply to the emails. That was my experience while in the program. During my last course at aspen, I decided that I wanted to apply for a Ph.D. and asked different professors to do recommendation letters. No professor responded. I emailed them again, and still no response; I had to contact the Academic advising manager, who then helped me contact the director of the program to even get an answer as to why the professors were acting like children. After TWO Months, I finally got a response from someone stating that the professor "did not feel comfortable making a recommendation" when all the professor had to do was send a quick email saying just that so I can seek a different professor. The only reason I had asked that professor was because she did my capstone project, and she was the professor in many of my courses during my degree."
