"My experience with CTU has been positive overall. I recommend the school's online degree programs. I do have to warn though, that once you start a program there, you should not take a break from the program, because you will be considered to have withdrawn from the school and upon returning, you most likely will be put in a new program that will have new requirements, which will require you to take additional courses. That is what happened to me and I ended up having to take 6 more courses that cost me thousands of additional dollars and I only missed one session."

"I have been in attendance at Colorado Technical University for nearly two years. My experience has been nothing short of exceptional. I absolutely adore my academic counselor who takes the time to talk to me regardless how miniscule or gigantic my "problem" is. Financial aid and accounts department is absolutely wonderful at explaining my financial dealings. MUSE is the best learning resource, catering to my specific learning needs. Course books at CTU are free (thank goodness!), and the library is a wealth of information both internally and on the web. The career center is absolutely resourceful and the clubs are extremely informative and fun! My teachers are amazing! I have had positive experiences with each and every one of them. The expectations are very concise across the board. They are challenging and fair. My academic program is AWESOME! We are given 180 credits, which sound like double to the standard brick and mortar, but because this is an excelled learning pace, it goes by fairly quickly and in a way that I can absorb. CTU doesn't have "class rooms", we have real world on the job experiences through virtual labs and projects that help equip students for the professional world. My program is more in-depth than those of a brick and mortar school and covers more subjects within my degree program. I couldn't ask for the better body of community or a superior school."

"I must agree with a lot of the posts on this site. I have attended CTU online for nearly a year so far, and I currently have a 3.84 GPA. I am quite proud of that too. It has not been easy, and I have definitely learned new things in each IT classes. I came to school with a broad knowledge of computer hardware and software... even down to C++, VB, HTML, Java and a few other languages. 95% of my instructors have had their PhD's which shows the instructors have credibility in the subjects they're teaching. All in all I have been satisfied with this degree program and it has been beneficial to me already in the first year. The FA dept is the subject of debate for many but personally I have had amazing results with them. I think ppl who are complaining are more worried about their stipends rather than education. If you read your loan forms as you do them it is self explanatory. Most jus blow past this contract detail area. But I follow this situation closely and I must say idt it is the fault of FA, but rather the students fault for not figuring out the probs w the Dept of Education. Your lender is not CTU, and you have the option to not allow FA to alter your loans from the start. Take it all out and pay extra $ back... then you are handling all of your funds. I would like to hear more about CTU alumni and their ability to find good jobs after graduation though. I plan to continue to obtain my master's after this degree and would like to know more about the benefits of the degree in real ppls lives. Help tell me more about this if you have graduated from CTUo. Use subject CTU or along those lines. Thank you"
