"I thought I would give this college one more chance. Previously enrolled with CSU Global Campus in 2014 and had some issues with the Instructor, not clarifying the expectations and assisting with the course. Also, there were a number of issues around turn over for the counselors that I was assigned to. This time around, I thought I would be open minded, and realize that this in an online school. The first month was satisfactory and the counselor was helpful. The instructor or Organizational Behavior was unresponsive, didn't utilize any tools to assist with communication to the class room. The second instructor for FIN500 didn't assist with concerns around Critical Thinking questions. Also, the paper assignments were hard to find and the instructor didn't seem to care about any critiques or assisting with questions around the Critical Thinking papers. Overall, my experience is that if you are ok with just a grade, and little to no interaction with your instructors, then this is the school for you. The overall feeling about this school, is that they are in it for the Money and not teaching or educating students. I do not recommend this school. Seek a better school!"

"I found this course helpful for my career and growth. This is very much interesting and knowledgeable course. Faculties are very good and they are highly qualified. Students enrolled are very much interactive and self motivated. I would definitely recommend this school"

"If you believe in a holistic approach, then this is the best school for you. I have extremely enjoyed learning here because it never put any strain on me; I tremendously enjoyed my studies here. Since I do not like timed tests, I really enjoyed tests and finals because all it required was the reflection of what I had learned through writing. The teachers, advisers, librarians are so helpful. However, do not expect to skip learning and then enjoy the environment. Everything is good only when the input is good or else you can simply say when you are willing to learn, then everything is great. There was not a single moment when I ever regretted of making this choice. So, I would definitely recommend this school. One thing to consider is that if you are not working and looking out for your university to provide resources for your hiring then this university does not offer that at all."

"I haven't had the best experience so far. I don't feel like I'm learning anything because I'm constantly having to read through lengthy chapters for critical thinking assignments which are to write huge essays EVERY WEEK. It is also required to post lengthy discussion board posts and respond to at least 2 classmates post in great length just like the other reviewer mentioned. Each class has 16 weeks of work crammed into 8 weeks. In addition to all of the weekly essays and discussion post, the final portfolio due at the end of week 8 is expected which in the classes I'm taking are 8-10 pages so unless you are working on your final portfolio each week on top of everything else you might as well forget about. I am currently enrolled full time which is two 3 credit classes per quarter. My projected graduation year is 2020 since I have 1 year of credits transferred from another college but there is no way to complete my degree by then unless I completely forget about working or my kids."

"The last 17 month at CSU-Global has been the best decision I have made when it come to getting my Masters. I was at another school before switching over to CSU-Global where I was paying a crazy tuition and still felt like I wasn't learning what I needed to help me further my career. I just finished my Masters degree and will be graduating this coming Saturday June 10th 2017. I had a wonderful experience with the instructors, classmates and courses overall. The staff and faculty are super friendly,helpful, understanding, and polite. I have had some times where I needed to turn in work late and pass the deadline and there was never an issue. This is truly an online school meaning you have to be the type of person that can learn from doing a lot of reading and interaction with other classmates during the weekly discussion module. I found that the instructors are willing to explain anything you do not understand. If you want a quality online school try CSU-Global. The programs are truly designed for working adults with families."

"I graduated last year with my MS in Organizational Leadership. The program itself was really well put together and I felt I really learned a lot. I did a specialization in Project Management and those classes were definitely challenging but I think the challenge of the material helped me learn more. Overall my instructors were approachable and nice. I was able to email or call them when I needed help or support. The flexibility of not being required to log in at certain times made a huge difference for me as a working mom. Overall I have no complaints! As for the other reviews, I thought I should speak to those. Several of these are not actually for CSU-Global Campus but in fact CSU in Ft. Collins. These are separate schools. Especially to the person who posted about his MBA- that is not even a program offered! Maybe that's why he was unhappy with his education, he didn't know which school he was attending!"

"Hopefully this review will help someone decide whether or not to attend this school. So my opinion is NOT to attend this school, it is very poorly organized and not set up to actually teach you anything! To put it a simple way, the teacher do not teach anything, you have a discussion post every week about a certain topic, which is actually just an assignment because you really don't discuss anything, then you have a critical thinking assignment every week, which the teachers do NOT tell you anything about the assignment, you just have to figure it out on your own! Not to mention they are usually long papers that you have to write, the class I'm currently taking, the assignment is a 4to 5 page paper, EVERY week! So basically you are not learning anything because you try and finish a 5 pg essay every week plus the other assignments, final review DO NOT go here!! Also most of the teachers are rude!"

"I enrolled in the global online MBA program Fall 2010. CSU increased tuition on me AFTER I had enrolled. I never even talked to or met my professors, had TA's for every class and they were not helpful in the least. Financial Aid department messed up my student loans constantly in the couple of months I was there, then when I withdrew from classes due to all by required date, they reversed a loan for my laptop so that I would be in the negative on my account to get back at me, then sent it to the state for collections so that I cannot attend another university until I pay them. I have two prior degrees, one of which is from a reputable private Christian university and graduated Magna Cum Laude. I am a twice widowed mother too. I would not recommend this school to anyone. The way I was treated speaks volumes of the morals, ethics, character of this school and those who caused all these issues for me."

"I attended CSU-Global part time from 2012 to 2016. I took a total of 19 classes and I had a wonderful experience with each class and instructor. The staff and well as the faculty is friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a quality online school try CSU-Global. The programs are designed for adults with full time jobs and families. You can complete your degree and still be a mom/dad."

"I am a current student at CSU-Global and this University's policy is setup to favor the University. I recently encountered a situation where I had to request an extension due to unforeseen circumstances. I followed CSU's Incomplete Request and the instructor failed to make the exam available. It is going on one month and the between the Instructor and faculty members this issues continues to be unresolved. Their lack of communication amongst one another is poor and they will try to put the blame on the student. Luckily, I am strong willed and I continue to stand my ground and advocate for current and future students. Run away and choose a more reputable University that treats its students with dignity and respect. The Instructors are not helpful and they also refer you to the internet instead of actually teaching the class. If you get stuck you'll have to depend of the internet as instructors declined to guide you through assignments. If I wanted to teach myself I would not have paid so much money to get the job done. Run, run, run, away fast."

"The only thing I liked about the school is when the classes started. I haven't liked any of the professors. The advisors are just plain rude. They treat veterans like children and withhold veterans benefits as long as they can get away with it. Just an overall horrible school. If I hadn't already started with this program I would leave. Unfortunately this is my second degree and if I transfer I will have to take additional classes. So I guess I am stuck dealing with their horrible online format and horrible administration for one more year. Do yourself a favor and see if Trump University is up and running again, it's probably a better option than CSU Global."

"I took a few accounting classes as a requirement for work and got my As. The online environment provided to the student deserves 5 stars. The instructors, though, deserve not more than 2 stars, most claim to have PhDs and one of them 3 Masters (?). Respectfully I believe they were just mere moderators, cheerleaders at the most but I do not know what they learned in their PhD programs. Every time that I asked a question for clarification on a subject I received a copied-and-pasted text from some source, may be from the instructor's manual, the internet, who knows, but never his(her) own. Not added value there. In addition often misinterpreted my question, e.g. Inflation vs Taxation, when asked for a 2nd time and advised to read my question carefully, wow one instructor went ballistic, took offense and told me to wait till I took a more advanced class. So basically this instructor was telling me that I would not be smart enough to understand the explanation if provided. NONE of them prepared their classes, clarified concepts with exercises, often they directed me to You Tube! But aren't I paying CSU Global for my edu? CSU Global can do better."

"I competed the first 3/4 of my degree at the brick and mortar college at Colorado State University Pueblo. Currently I am completing the last 3 courses of my degree program. Having attended both the B&M University and Global University I would rate them as being even as far as academic rigor is concerned. This was my first experience with online learning and I must say that CSU Global surpassed my expectations. I am an adult learner who expects to be challenged and CSU Global did not disappoint! The coursework challenged me to think critically and to provide research based academic material that supported my work. Each of my instructors were PhD credentialed professors who provided excellent feedback that enhanced both my learning experience and personal growth. My only disappointment would be that they do not offer a Industrial & Organizational Psychology Graduate program! CSU Global is the first and only statutorily-defined 100% online, public university in the U.S. with independent, regional accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission. I strongly recommend it!"

"I had gone to a "regular" university years ago, and after 2 years of attending classes and not knowing what I wanted to do, I left for the workforce. During the course of the next 15 years I finished an associates in Electronics and gained a lot of practical experience and certifications in the IT industry. With urging from my boss, I decided to go back and finish my Bachelors and CSU-Global seemed like a good fit for someone who worked full time and could only further my education on my own time. The application/admission process was fairly straightforward and they did accept the majority of my previous credits with no problems. There was an option to get some additional credits for real-life experience (based on certifications) but I didn't pursue that option as it seemed tedious and it didn't sound like it would have a major impact. The coursework itself was not overly difficult, but keep in mind I had 15 years experience in the industry so a lot of it was review. The actual computer/network courses were pretty easy because of that. The most engaging courses were the management/leadership type classes and the project management class. The classes I had the most difficulty with were the Accounting course and the Software programming (Java) course, this was largely due to me not being terribly interested in either based on my own personal preferences. Also, a later course was a database class on MS SQL 2005, which was pretty out of date given that both 2008 and 2012 were out. The word was they were developing the new course based off newer versions, but as it was one of my last class requirements I wanted to get it out of the way rather than wait. They also really didn't have an intro to DBA type class, but that was apparently also in development so they likely do by now. Overall, the work wasn't too difficult if you are a proficient writer (as practically all of the homework is written papers or forum topic discussions) and you can manage your time effectively. I can't speak as to how valuable the degree is from a general perspective. I've been with the same company for quite a long time, so I haven't had to interview for any new jobs now that I have this degree and I don't have any feedback to grade how well received it would be by those in hiring positions. However it did help me to get a promotion at work into a management role, which likely wouldn't have happened otherwise. So from that perspective it was worth the time and effort, as well as the personal satisfaction of being able to say I finally finished my Bachelor's."

"Colorado State University- Global is an excellent institution which I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at. Having spent the majority of my college education in online settings I can attest that the learning environment is very well organized and well structured. I have learned quite a bit in my degree program and would recommend this school to anyone who works full-time but wishes to pursue their education further."
