"Hello everyone, My overall experience at CTU has been great. I started my journey at CTU in 2018 when I lost my spouse. I was going through a series of loneliness and depression and at that point colleagues of mine mentioned joining school through the services provided by my work. I was skeptical but at the same time, I always wanted to go back to school to further my education. Due to my family circumstances and financial situation, I did not get the opportunity to go back to school. To get out of depression, I finally made up my mind to go back to school. Since I was away from school for so long, I was not sure what I want I wanted to major in, therefore, I decided to stick with the medical field. The coaches at CTU made the transition so easy for me and guided me throughout my journey. As a result of it, I was able to finish my bachelor's degree in Healthcare Management with honors. This has given me the courage to consider going back to get my masters degree. I have registered myself to come and join in person to celebrate the big achievement on July 24th but I am not sure I will be able to due to the financial difficulties. My dream is to come and be with my fellow graduates to celebrate. I am asking CTU to help me any way possible to come for in-person graduation ceremony with my two daughters. I will be ever so thankful and grateful to the CTU staff and faculty. Finally, I am really grateful to all of my instructors and students that assisted me in learning and growing, as well as making this dream a reality. Sincerely, Purnima Dean"

"CTU is an very good school with the essentials to succeed. I'm an early grad (1995) and I can say the Profs and small student:teacher ratio was a godsend from the 50+:1 ratio I got a a large university. I recommend and would attend again in a heartbeat"

"This school was everything I needed and I will always be grateful I was able to get my BSN in nursing with CTU. There are so many bad reviews I hesitated and looked into many other schools before just deciding to use CTU and I never looked back or regretted it, not for one minute. I know 100% that I would have never gotten my Bachelors if it was not for CTU. I used my Associates degree, my RN license, my nursing experience and a few classes I'd taken to get enough credits to graduate in 10 months which to me was the shortest BSN I'd ever heard of. I recommend CTU to everyone. No school is perfect, no staff is perfect and no this is not like other prestigious colleges you'd find out there but it was everything I needed and gave me my BSN. I am now currently enrolling in the Masters in Nursing in Education after deciding against a Masters in NP. I am a mom, wife, and full-time RN, CTU works best for those like me!"

"I did enjoyed attending CTUOnline however being that the teachers use their own grading rubric its frustrating when one teacher does it one way and another teacher does it another way. I feel as though I was singled out by certain teachers which ultimately negatively impacted my overall grade. I was on the presidents list 6 consecutive times in a row and was failed by teachers however, when taking the same class with a different professor I excelled. If every teacher was held to the same grading scale I would recommend but being that they don't I can not in good conscience recommend CTU at this time."

"Colorado Technical University is a great School. If one follows the prescribed and defined methods and stays with the format, success is possible. The university's objective is to provide career-oriented education by teaching current applied education. The majority of the professor are real-world industry experts. They really have the passion to teach and serve the education domain. I would definitely recommend the university if one is willing to dedicate the time and money."

"This is a very hard university to keep up within the classes after attending. It is very hard to learn the online zoom chats along with many other newly structured testings to follow within the Masters and Doctorate levels. Although if you are wanting challenge then this is the place for you. If you like to work then this is the place for you too."

"This was the second best experience of my life. The first is giving birth to my daughter. From my first contact with the counselors to the instructors, my experience has been great. I had my challenges with online study and research but I learned to stay consistent with my studies. I learned a lot from my instructors, as well as how dedicated other student were as well. I had planned to attend the ceremony but with everything going on around us, I missed that opportunity. All the speaker at the graduation were excellent especially professor Berry she was the best and she gave a lot of encouragement and affirmation. CTU you are the best!!!!"

"CTU does not have instructors, financial aid advisors or other staff who are equipped to or interested in assisting students. If you are entirely self sufficient and have the patience to deal with ill prepared staff, you may find CTU is for you. But if you would like support, this is likely not the school for you."

"Colorado Technical University provided the flexibility and intellectual stimulation for me as a working adult to achieve the personal goal of attaining a doctoral degree. The breadth of experience, guidance, and knowledge of the instructors provided the foundations for personal and professional growth and helped me to complete my dissertation. As the only constructive criticism, I would like to point out that the last four classes related to the degree program were condensed and perhaps could be expanded to allow some flexibility to complete the course requirements. Completing the expectations and dissertation that led to fulfilling the requirements of the doctoral degree was one of the hardest challenges that I have ever overcome. My thanks to the faculty, staff, peer mentors, family and friends that guided me through the entire process. Cheers! MAGA"

"To whom it may concern, I would like to personally Thank, Colorado Technical University (CTU) and its Staff. I'm a recent Graduate and have obtained my Bachelor's of Science Degree in Information Technology (BSIT - Magna cum laude) Online. A little bit of background, I've endured several traumatic events while attending CTU. The Staff I was fortunate to speak with throughout these difficult times showed compassion and had encouraged me to pursue continuing my education, providing me with information/alternatives to accomplish my goal. Thank you,"

"Make sure the degree program you enter into will help advance your career whether it is current or future. After graduating I found out I cannot enter into the career of my choice and this is very disappointing and unsettling especially when I called the school and they offered no other alternatives."

"Originally, I was skeptical about enrolling into CTU's online program, because of how easy it was. I came across their website after doing a search on my mobile phone for an MBA-Entrepreneurship program after realizing that I wanted more than my B.A. in Business Administration. My realization involved learning that I wanted to add to my knowledge on the subject of Entrepreneurship to help me be more efficient as a small business owner, since my undergraduate degree wasn't going to get me a corporate job at the age of 50-plus. In spite of the negative reviews that CTU was a allegedly being a for-profit diploma mill by ex- students that were not happy with their experience or didn't complete their programs. or by naysayers who never attended CTU, I have finished "CTU STRONG," with a 3.71 GPA and increased knowledge over my undergrad degree. CTU is both academically and professionally accredited. I was academically and professionally challenged with the curriculum and have been granted a legitimate degree that I both earned and deserve!"

"I appreciate the conveniences of online colleges and CTU has been my favorite. I felt the quality of learning and the subject matter was reasonably high. The instructors were experienced and well versed in the subject matter. Although not all classes include practical labs, the intense research necessary to address the class objectives provided a good base for the competency-based progression. I, especially, appreciated the opportunity for credit in recognition of work experience."

"The strong desire to become a global leader in my career perspective motivated me to acquire an internationally recognized educational qualification through Colorado Technical University - CTU The road to this day was very tough and fearful. I was waking up at night to work on my assignments and scared not to have issues with my job as well as apprehensive whenever I received Payment Due emails from CTU Account section. But I changed my career along the way. I was demotivated to continue my studies, and after that, I received a withdraw notification. But the tears to achieve my dreams got me a re-entry, and today, the journey was successful. The most rewarding part of earning my degree at CTU is that I achieved one of my dreams of acquiring an internationally advanced degree. Therefore, the activities to my next step in my career endeavors have just begunWhenever I think of my career prospects and growth plans, how I have enjoyed the support of my Spouse Audrey, and how I feel I should be of comfort to my daughters' Peace, Catherine, Jane, Erica, and Jessica, I immediately get motivated to seek prayers from God to ensure I complete this study successfully. The graduation day means an accomplished day for one of my proudest dreams. Future students need to consider the reason why they started the educational journey and always remember that time is limited to achieving their goals. The process can make them utilize any available opportunity or activity to achieve successIn the first two weeks of my class participation in RES864, I was still not sure on my research topic and proposal in the perspective of aligning the research question with the research problem statement and purpose even after I repeated the course. Dr. Debra Burrington skillfully reviews my draft research proposal and makes some remarks. My review of the comments made my inadequacies so crystal clear with a concept that made me do an acceptable write-up, which was magic that still surprises me till date; asking myself how did I proceed from that stage in my research? Dr. Debra Burrington gave me constructive feedback and encouragement, commitment, and sincere interest in my study. Other faculty did same, but Dr. Debra remarks remain a mark in the memories of my academic journey at CTU"
