"If you are looking for an "easy" piece of paper, this is not the academic institution for you. I was hesitant to pursue an online degree after many years in a classroom; however, you will get out of your studies what you put into them. You must have drive, integrity, discipline and passion to excel anywhere, although these are especially important for graduate studies at Aspen. My professors were incredible in both their passion to assist in my success as well as the motivation to participate daily in discussion forums, feedback on assignments and overall guidance. Phenomenal experience."

"If youre relying on financial aid a lot like I am nowadays after going to a traditional school, then this will probably work out for you. Ive gotten my -associates degree in a good online school, as well as done on campus, and Im just glad this school isnt my first experience. This is a SELF TAUGHT school; I say that in capital letters because not everyone is going to do well with that. Sure, I can read law journals online, but taking a criminal law class with absolutely no module material is actually pretty crappy. Youre most likely going to do some discussion posts, and do an assignment every week. Is this the kind of learning I want? No. But for then price, Aspen allows me to finish up the other half of my almost finished Bachelors degree. I wouldnt recommend you going on here on the sole basis that I havent learned anything new over the last few months. However, if youre in a situation where money is tight, and you see those job requirements with bachelors degree required, then this is an affordable way to finish yours."

"The classes require extensive reading and writing. Expect to write 10 to 12 weekly per class. I have a 4.0 and spend approx. 8 hours weekly per class. Some instructors do not provide adequate feedback on your work and simply focus on your APA formatting. Overall, Im very satisfied and recommend Aspen."

"I' ve never regret enrolling this school. I can't say it was easy to get a good grade, but the amount of homework was adequate. Instructors answer in 24 h and are very supportive. Academic advisor was just amazing. She helped me alot when I have some issues with one of the instructors. I wish they have NP program. Excellent program! Highly recommended."

"This has been an exceptional experience for me going to Aspen for my degree. It has been many years since I received my Associates and I only wish that I was dedicated to do it earlier. The professors are wonderful, I found the school helpful when questions were asked and very attentive. I had one class out of the 15 that I needed to complete that I felt was a bit hard to work through, which was the Nursing Research class but even that was exceptional. You have got to be dedicated to pursue your degree and give it the time that is required to participate and put thought to the assignments. If you do your art, the University is there to help you succeed. With so many Universities offering degrees now online, I am very thankful that I chose this one. They are a class act!"

"Aspen University's online degree program was excellent. While the class were challenging, and there were deadlines to meet each week, I really felt that I learned a lot of useful information. Instructors were easy to reach and representatives from admissions and billing were always available during business hours to help with all questions of payment and finance. I did have a rough time at first working through how the website worked and with submission of assignments. As a nurse returning to school after not having been in a classroom for over 2 decades, I did feel a little discouraged at first. But After the first course it got much easier. I finished the bachelor's program with a 3.9 GPA and am starting the master program in public health nursing on January 8th."

"Worst college I have ever attended. Poor instruction, unclear guidelines. Some student were ESL; I have no problem with this but it can be difficult responding to their posts, of which you have to do as part of your grade. The tuition is cheap but you get what you pay for. The single most damaging thing I have done to my academic career was attend this university."

"I found Aspen University's MBA course to be excellent. WHat many people don't realise that you actually study almost the same subjects, topics and textbooks that the best universities do. There was a lot of work but I learnt a lot. This is a great online university. You have to remember that the degree gets you an interview but you have to perform at the interview to get the job. All the information is there in the courses and the online chats are very helpful. In the end you can't just buy a degree to get a good job, you have to work for it!"

"Just like most colleges and universities, Aspen is a money hungry business. I transferred many credits in that they refused to acknowledge as anything other than electives. During my duration at this university, I haven't learned much that actually felt relevant to my degree except 2 courses. The set up could be better than what it is. The teacher is not up to date with current books and information. I was surprised that the school was run so poorly. You pay a technology fee while the school offers no resources. The syllabus does not state anything important such as a grading scale."

"Aspen Universitys RN to BSN program was excellent and I recommend it highly. The counselors called on a regular basis to check on my progress or to see if I needed anything, and they were accessible when I called. The instructors responded to e-mails usually within 24 hours to answer questions. The classroom website was well organized and was detailed enough to delineate exactly what was expected and when to keep learning progress moving. Im not going to tell you that the class work was easy, because it wasnt, but it was very doable. I had two Associate degrees and a Bachelor of Sciences degree from regionally accredited colleges when I started the Aspen program, and this program was as rigorous if not more so. The proctored exit exam was exactly what the study guide said it would be. I am very happy with the education I received at Aspen. They said that a BSN would enhance opportunities and make one a better nurse, and it has."
