"I am just returning to complete my degree with Colorado State University - Global. CSU Global took the vast majority of my transfer credits from another university. The process was simple and the staff members were extremely helpful in getting me on track to succeed. Many of the questions and concerns that I had about returning to school so late in my life were addressed in a clear and concise manner. My enrollment counselor was available to speak with almost every time that I called, and if I had to leave a message, he promptly returned my call. My enrollment counselor assisted me with the process of getting my transcripts, the information necessary to submit them to CSU as well as information about the current scholarships that were available to me. He also provided me with the information to apply for financial aid. I realize some of this is just common sense type stuff, but it made a huge difference for me as i was in the process of moving out of one house and into another (on the same day), working my 40-hour per week job and working overtime. Without his assistance, I probably would have put school of for a longer period of time. I truly appreciate the time my enrollment counselor took to help me succeed in pursuing and committing to my degree. I enrolled in two classes initially; it appears as though it will be a lot of work, but I am committed to completing my degree as soon as possible and then moving forward with a degree in Information Technology. Hopefully, the information I have provided will be helpful in assisting some of you reading this to take a serious look at CSU and CSU Global. I would definitely recommend CSU Global for new students, as well as returning students like me."

"warning!!! This university is fake and worthless. All they really car about money. I do not want to talk about the education quality and what do you really learn through their programs. I want to warn others that when it comes to real life and work force you would be depressed to find that taking similar or equivalent courses at a community college would look better on your resume and more respected. Not to mention it is a lot cheaper and they also have a lot of online courses as well. The school standard is very low and i could not transfer any credit to some other universities when i was looking for a second bachelor or a master program. To be fair, it would probably work if you are in a career and just needed a degree to help advance or promote to a higher level withing the same agency or company. Other than it is just a waste of time and money. Even their master programs do not require gmat or any other test to be qualified unlike any other university cause its business and money is the goal."

"I'm reading these reviews and it seems that most here have never taken an online course before. You get material, you are expected to learn it on your own, and you are given opportunities to demonstrate your knowledge. This University was ranked 9th best online degree by US News which is partially why I chose to attend it. The assignments take a lot of time and require you to do serious work. For me, it is difficult to accomplish while holding a 50+ hour a week job. I WISH it was as easy as these other reviews say it is. Perhaps they are okay with getting D's, I'm not sure. This is an adult school for adult students. If you can't learn on your own, and need to be fed like a baby, then find a daycare. I highly recommend this school as I've taken online classes at 3 community colleges before this, and this is by far the most intensive and rigorous of the 4."

"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 wish I had thought to read reviews of this school prior to enrolling here. With that said; please be aware that this review is my opinion, and only one of many opinions, so please do your own research, and come to your own conclusions. First off, if you plan on having interaction with your instructors, you will need to look elsewhere. That's not an opinion just a simple fact, one I was unaware of prior to enrolling. I enrolled here mostly because of the lower tuition rate over my previous school; Colorado Technical University - Online. However; the money savings, is becoming questionable. I'm used to a more conventional education experience where you have an instructor/professor give a lecture, or presentation, or live chat, covering the material that will be studied for that week. Here, I have one class that has TWO, (yes 2) live chats scheduled over the ENTIRE 8 WEEKS! and my other class has NONE! I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea of paying $350/credit hour to essentially do a bunch of book reports and teach myself. Granted, there is no such thing as a perfect school, CTU certainly had it's drawbacks, (aside from cost), but at least there the instructors held 2 live chats EVERY WEEK, not 2 in 8 weeks! As for the instructors, well I'm still a new student so I haven't been exposed to a large variety of instructors yet, (and it's looking like I never will be, aside from the occasional email). However, when I do email an instructor I've always gotten a response within 24 hours. Financial aid has been good in the fact that they explained everything to me, answered all my questions, and so far haven't given me any headaches. My biggest gripe is the fact that, like I stated above, I feel like I'm spending A LOT of money to be critiqued on book reports! For those who are curious this is the work load for a typical undergraduate course every week: Read Chapters 1, 2, & 14 in (insert book title), plus read these articles from 2 or 3 assorted websites. Then you Critical Thinking Assignment: Your well written paper should meet the following requirements: 3 - 4 pages in length, in addition to the title page and reference page, Formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements, Cite a minimum of two scholarly sources, at least one of which is not provided in, or linked from, the course. The CSU-Global Library is a great place to find scholarly sources! Then you have your Discussion Board post, and project portfolio as well as your mastery exercises to complete. This is each week for EACH CLASS, so if you're like me and taking 2 classes each week, then you double the work I just described. All without instructor interaction, unless you reach out to them via email or phone call. In a nutshell, I don't feel like this is the right school for me, but for others it might be just what they are looking for. The key is to find the school you're comfortable with, can afford, and will provide you with a quality education that's accredited and recognized!"

"Despite what many of the reviews here say the educational quality of the school is fairly high. The setup with heavy reading and lengthy essays make students explore things in a very thorough manner. However, there are a large number of issues with their financial and student services. At the beginning I was told that I had room to fail or retake a few classes, however being a 3.88 GPA student luckily that hasn't been an issue. If it had been an issue I came to learn there's actually no extra room in my loans for any extra classes. I also found out that because so many classes are non-transferable there's not enough money left in my loans to even attend another school without paying out of pocket. Further I had to rework my loans myself to even be able to cover books ( they never tell you that there are terms you won't get your full grants). Coming to terms with this issue I decided to carry on. That is until yesterday, 2 weeks before finals, when my computer stopped working for no reason. Just like any other issue I had, the only solutions proposed to me or take more loans and fix it myself. They give no discounts for tech support they have no loaner computers for emergencies they have nothing to offer students in the way of services for really anything else either. The school seems to regularly use their distance to their advantage, so they can pass the buck back off to the student. I wouldn't recommend this school to anybody else, and I don't know what to do because I'm already stuck here, but all I know is I might actually fail a class because my computer broke and there was no way to get help."
