Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2020
"I had a positive experience at Aspen, after spending a lot of money on my Associate's Degree, I was looking for something that would take my credits and something I could pay without getting more loans. I am glad I found Aspen! They are affordable and flexible, there is a lot of writing but nothing too crazy. The teachers are great, always willing to help. If you are a full-time worker and/or parent this school is for you."

Degree: RN to BSN Campus
Graduation Year: 2020
"My experience at Aspen University was great. The courses are structured to help students acquire knowledge and be able to apply it to their current practice. Courses with practical aspect are made easy with lay down instructions on how to carry them out. These practical courses made it possible for me to engage with my community in ways I have not done before. The instructors and other administrative staff were absolutely great. I want to commend their quick response to my email, voicemail messages, and their ability to connect students to the right resources both personnel and otherwise. My overall experience was great and I will definitely recommend the university to other potential students."

Barrett - 10/14/2020
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2021
"Aspen University has been a great experience so far. All of my professors have doctoral degrees and are easy to communicate with via email. The curriculum is clearly presented as are the expectations. I can easily get answers from my mentor, who has always been available when I call Aspen directly; on issues regarding payments, retrieving past papers, how to utilize the resources available in the library, etc. This program is not for someone that is hoping to get an easy degree without putting in the time and work required. Yes, you write a lot of APA papers, but this is not necessarily a bad thing as you will need to know what what you are doing when you start grading your own student's APA papers someday!"

Therese - 10/9/2020
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020
"I have been a student at Aspen University for the last four years. My first degree was a bachelors in nursing. I have now just completed my Masters. The instructors were knowledgeable and always willing to help in anyway. I would highly recommend Aspen University if you want to pursue higher education at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. Wonderful nursing program!"

Degree: RN to BSN
Graduation Year: 2021
"I am about halfway through this program and find that I really like the program and find the assignments doable. I have recommended this school to a few of my friends and coworkers. I have learned from every class and all of my instructors have been good about grading assignments in the 7 day window."

Degree: RN to BSN
Graduation Year: 2020
"I like the way the academic advisors and the instructors respond to any concern or questions in a timely manner. The coursework is most times heavy but if one put their minds to doing it, it is doable to say the least. I am thinking about furthering my education and so far I had a good experience with Aspen thus far."

"Aspen University is a great match for me. I did my BSN completion online. Mind you, I had my RN- ADN degree 15 years ago and not familiar with online classes. My advisor and all my professors had help me through the trenches. I just finished my BS-RN completion program. It was hard because of the pandemic that is happening when I was going to finish the course. Working during COVID plus going to school was a nightmare. But because I had SUPPORT and MOTIVATORS from my advisor and professors in the Nursing Department - I made it through. My advisor- Amber had supported me a lot through this journey. Even after I finished my degree, My professor offered any help she can in my future endeavors. There is no perfect university out there and I know some students will be unsatisfied. You just need to find you the right match for you. I highly recommend Aspen, for single mothers with young kids, full time employee and full time student student."

VR - 8/12/2020
Degree: RN to BSN
Graduation Year: 2021
"By far the worst program ever. Teachers are hired day before class and have zero knowledge of the system being used. The price you pay for this program is insane compared to the education you receive. Do not waste your time and money. The communication between faculty is absolutely horrible. Pre-covid the information and faculty were awful. Now its even worse. $500 to take a HESI and not a single member of the class passed because we were given ZERO information on what we were to expect or the fact we were not taught anything. Nursing Seminar course is a complete waste of money. Every term you have this course and every single discussion or assignment is exactly verbatim from previous nursing seminar course. You end up writing DQs on the exact same stuff you wrote about last term. Save your money if you want a real nursing education."

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2016
"Aspen allowed me to obtain my MBA within 18 months and zero debt. No, this is not Harvard Business School. But you will learn the general principles you would learn at other brick and mortar business schools. The classes are not difficult. If you are even semi-organized, but as long as you determination, this program should not be difficult at all. I attended NYU for undergrad and this MBA course was much easier. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn business principles for their career or just for themselves."
