"Aurora University is an excellent school with an on-line MBA program that is tailored towards working professionals. For starters, the application and admission process was very straightforward and there was an admissions counselor available every step of the way. Once I was admitted, I was paired with an education counselor and we created a progression plan specific to my learning needs and cognizant of my working schedule. The required courses for the program cover wide range of topics, and the elective courses provide the opportunity to focus on particular subjects. One downside is that the university does not offer a specialized"

"Overall, truly poor experience with the university so far. The registrar's office does not appear to do their job with enrollment status, as they clearly state they will. The field work experience for the MSW program is a very poor process that limits students' opportunities rather than encourage them, as well as the process of setting up the internship once accepted can take months which then affects future employers. I'd recommend looking elsewhere."

"Aurora has really given me the educational foundation in the area of social work to improve myself and build a very well rounded educational experience. The professors are wonderful and have a true interest in their students not just the coursework. All departments at Aurora from Admissions to Professors have been wonderful in taking time to explain in e-mail or in person. Aurora has become more than a university for myself but a support system for me achieving my goals in my education"

"Aurora University is an amazing educational establishment. They have very clean academic buildings on a small and very safe campus. The atmosphere is very friendly and the program is highly accredited. I have never had a problem with the staff and the financial aid office, as well as all other offices on campus, have very friendly staff who will do everything they can to assist you."

"Aurora University was a great campus to attend. I had excellent instructors, experts in their field. I was able to double major in psychology and art by means of an ART independent study program. The student peers were nice people to work with in class projects."

"What finalized my decision to apply for Aurora University's MSW program is that they offer a part time option and most of the courses are offered at night and weekends. I am working full time while pursuing my degree, so having the option to complete night classes part time allows me to continue to work and maintain a light course load that won't interfere with my work. The professors are knowledgeable and have worked in the field, so they have excellent guidance to offer.The only con is that the program is expensive in comparison to the public universities within the state."

"The pros are that the university has a great mission of challenging students to a higher academic standard and encouraging writing creativity. The cons are that the university does not provide support for finding internships or for financial aid needs."

"All of the professors are very personable and very involved in the quality of our learning. I have never felt as though a teacher did not care about my learning and my overall experience. The work load is reasonable and the content is strong and applicable. However, communication is lacking in administration and registration and it takes a long time to get a response with information."

"I am currently in the MSW program at George Williams College through Aurora University. I have only been in the program for a few weeks, but I love the program. The classes are small and the instructors are learning who we are as individuals. They are focused on helping us succeed. The class is very diverse and I am impressed with the program. I look forward to continuing my education with them."
