"Very expensive. Not worth the money. If you are in Canada, study at Athabasca instead. Huge variability in professors. Some are excellent, others are poorly organized and poor teaching. Syllabi often have large errors, such as wrong dates and grade breakdowns. Confusion as to how assignments are to be crafted from one professor to another. Different program delivery modes have different ways of approaching administration. Overall the education is not reliable. Some professors take no responsibility for their part in crafting the syllabus and assignment details. I have heard that the program has gone through changes over the years, before it was better, which is why I chose it. Now, I would not recommend it."

"Most of the profs are inexperienced and new to teaching in general let alone graduate level courses. Hardly any counselling practice opportunities, despite this being advertised prior to joining the program. Did not feel prepared for internship, luckily internship experience was enriching."

"Some teacher's are great, others are VERY bad. There is a culture of not addressing student concerns and students are generally treated with disrespect. Certain classes revolve around the pet theory of the administrator (his own) to the exclusion of other relevant theories and practices. During the in-person interview, prospective students are informed by the administrator that he only devotes part of his time to the University does take kindly to being contacted about concerns."

"This "college" is a joke! Tuition is astronomical and does not match the quality of education received. The faculty pool is small, the instructor selection doesn't exist, you are stuck with the same people throughout your program, most are fresh out of PHD school and lack field experience, have very clear biases and gossip about each other to the class. The school itself doesn't have an adequate library or bookstore, there is no caf, or student lounge. It's an overpriced manufactured college experience. I would not recommend. Financial aid is horrible. I once received my disbursement with three weeks left in the quarter!! Stay away! Go to a real university."

"So far this school has been a great experience. I love the instructors and their quality education. They are well educated and have many real-world experiences about them. The financial aid has been interesting. I am using 40% of my Post 9/11 GI Bill and the Veteran's Rep at the school is very helpful and knows her stuff! In addition, working with the regular financial aid team, they were full of knowledge and got back to me very quickly. Since this program is newer and still developing, there are some kinks. But, so far they have been fixed by the staff. Overall, great education so far and the tuition isn't that bad."
