I've been very pleased with CSU Global. All of the administrative staff I have interacted with have been upbeat, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and quick to respond. I even won one of thier internal scholarships so regular people do win those. I majored in accounting for my BS. I feel the coursework was very in depth and comprehensive. My issue with accounting was that I had no background in it and stuggled to find relevance to my daily work life. By the time I realized I had no interest in accounting I was so far in I didn't want to change majors. I am currently attending for my MS in healthcare administration. I work in medical billing and my classes now are so relevant to my work it's amazing the difference. The reading materials and paper topics are exactly what upper leadership at my hospital discusses and I feel so in tune. This is a heavy reading and writing program but that's to be expected since it's online. My writing has improved. Some teachers give excellent feedback, others more meh. I have had no negative teacher experiences. If you're outside Colorado I can see people thinking this is just another random online school. If you're in Colorado though this school is well known and respected. I work for the largest healthcare provider in the state. I know several people attending this school and all are competent mid level staff and managers. Nobody has ever discounted my degree or CSU Global to my face. I won a scholarship at work and they knew I was attending here. If you're established in your career or industry this degree will enhance your resume. Nobody pretends it's a Harvard MBA but it doesn't need to be. Adults with full time jobs can really improve themselves at this school. I'm excited because my in-progress MHA has already made me a good candidate for promotions. Tuition is very affordable and there is so little red tape regarding admissions and financial aid.
Regret going back to complete my degree at CSU Global. Peers and employers dont view it as a valid institution, and I truly have to agree. The majority of your class work revolves around writing papers, and as long as you meet the bare minimum requirements (length, number of sources, address each point) you will get an A. I graduated with a 4.0 and can say I didnt learn a thing. Waste of time and money. Work hard at your job and you will end up better off than paying for a piece of paper that no one views as legitimate.
Highly recommended for self-motivated adult learners. I really have no idea what people are expecting when they attend college online. I see lots of reviews complaining about the fact that they have to provide research papers weekly and a longer portfolio project. Yes, this is true. Do they hold your hand? No, they do not. Are most professors highly approachable and friendly, willing to answer questions about the subject matter? Absolutely. Bottom line: If you attend CSU-Global you will do lots of research (reading -huge amounts-), answer discussion posts and prove that your studies paid off via the research report. AND you will be treated like an ADULT with EXPECTATIONS that you MANAGE TIME appropriately. Is it easy to write research papers? No, it is not. But you learn so much if you are willing to put in the work. Once you graduate, CSU-Global is HIGHLY committed to your success as well.
How is a student supposed to have faith in an online university if you can't access your assignments because of non-stop maintenance? 3/4 of the time I could not even login into the portal, and when I did get logged in, the portal had limited functionality. Because of this, I decided that I would withdraw as I didn't have faith in their online learning environment. When attending an online university, you should be able to access your assignments any time of the day Note: This was only my second week in and I plan on not re-enrolling. This was extremely frustrating, as I was really hoping to complete my Bachelor's degree.
Best decision I ever made. The school was awesome in every way. The fees were reasonable and as long as you did your work and turned in all assignments the professors helped you achieve your goals. I have not even received my diploma yet and got a huge raise at work just for completing my Bachelors. Please make a difference and change your life. Pick this school. You will not regret it.
Colorado State Universitys Global Campus is an online campus that allows for student everywhere to enhance their educations and continue their lives, while changing themselves for the better. It is an educational institution that prepared me well for perusing a higher education. The schools online format, and the accelerated programming, made learning easy and fun while allowing me to continue working. Without the availability of an online format, working full-time, and going to school full-time would not have been possible. My degree, in Human Services, was well presented. The school provided excellent materials to ensure I was adequately informed about my chosen field and would have relevant information to complete papers and other class assignments. Additionally, the professors were very knowledgeable and provided a great deal of insight, and many personal experiences, to enhance learning objectives. The professors gave great feedback on both assignments and discussions. They also maintained consistent and appropriate communication with the students in both the online classroom setting and through the personal contact, when needed. Both the faculty and the school were understanding of the stresses and dedication involved in earning an online degree. The school provided access to many literary sources, which was included in the tuition price. The cost of an undergraduate degree at this university is comparable to many other state schools and was offset by the many opportunities to receive Colorado State University Global Campus scholarships. Personally, these scholarships made it possible for me to continue my education and earn my undergraduate degree.
I have recently graduated with a bachelor's from CSU Global. Overall, it was a good learning experience that prepared me for a promotion at work. Taking classes here is not for those who cannot manage their time. You have to put in the work, every day. I have fallen behind a couple times, and it can be difficult to catch up. The professors are for the most part helpful, though I have had a couple who seem to be running on autopilot. Grading can vary, some are strict while others are not, similar to ordinary schools. It is all self taught, you have to put the effort in to learn, and do the research. The material is not going to be forced down your throat. A discussion board post is due each week with 2 replies to others posts. A 2-3, sometimes 3-4 page paper is due most weeks, with a 8-10 page portfolio project due by week 8.
I left before I graduated. The instructors are so poorly attentive. The level of instruction is not at a college level. They mark down papers and have to return the points they marked off due to their negligence. I do not recommend this college. It is not a scholarly environment.
I enjoyed this school. I had trouble with my adviser at the beginning, but that was rectified and have been satisfied since. The work can be intense, but it is only 8 weeks so that makes sense. I loved the tutoring site. It was a real asset for the essay reviews and math. I think it can be like many professors in brick and mortar schools, some give really good feedback and others it can be a struggle. You should be prepared to learn a lot on your own, and do a lot research because that is part of the online experience.
I'm a very late bloomer and decided to get my bachelors degree in my mid-40s. I loved the flexibility of working from home when it was convenient. I also think I learned and retained far more in this format because we were required to do so much reading, and so much writing. Rather than cramming for a test, I was immersed in the subjects by reading, and then wrote papers on the subject. Yes, so much reading and writing takes a lot of time, but as a college student--at ANY school--you have to be prepared to commit the time. My instructors were all very responsive and knowledgeable. I have recommended CSU-G to many people.
