"I found the Grant riding class very very useful. I also found the leadership course very useful. I was at the end of my career and used my military benefits to further my career. I wrote several grants that helped a lot of people. I would highly recommend the school to anybody that is wanting to extend their career and help people."

"My time at Colorado Technical University was great. I enjoyed the online classroom instruction weekly and the individuals that I have met from various locations throughout this country. My graduation in June 2011 was a real highlight and I really felt great in receiving my Masters of Science Degree (MSM) in Management in Criminal Justice (Although they do not give out this degree anymore). I have seen some who have said that they had a bad experience at this university, but I would tell them that maybe this was not a good fit for them. I am now working on a Doctorate in Public Administration in another Online University, but my time at Colorado Tech has not been disappointing at all."

"I agree about the grammar and foreign exchange thing. I graduated with a MBA in CJ and the discussion boards and group projects were the worst! I have no idea how a "professor" can pass students with such poor knowledge of the written English language! I am sure they all passed just for completing the assignments. Not sure what their grading policies are or if they even acknowledge poor grammar and writing skills. Overall, my goal was to receive my degree and that is what I did. I used financial aid and the degree has actually benefited me in my current position and positions I will receive in the future with promotions and such. I am currently employed in a really good organization with a lot of room for moving up the ladder and thanks to my degree, I can do that. The courses were very time consuming, since the classes consisted mostly of writing assignments due every week. I would rather write than take tests anyways. Therefore, I enjoyed it. I enjoyed researching and compiling evidence. The instructors were nice and responded if you emailed them. I actually breezed through the degree program without opening one book, LOL. I use the internet to research very often and that was all I needed. I would recommend CTU if you enjoy writing and researching on a deadline. The course assignments are always posted by the first day of class, so you can get a head start and be done with all the assignments if you wanted to do that. If not, time management is key! As I stated above, the worst part about CTU, in my opinion, was reading the discussion posts by some of the students and the group projects. I made it a point to only read the one's from students that I knew could write well. Nothing much to do when it came to group projects since we were assigned our groups. I just went back and revised everyone's part to make sure it sounded good. Oh and I forgot to mention, once you graduate, they have a fee that you have to pay. For me, it was $200. IDK about anyone else. What is the fee for? I have no idea. I had no idea that I owed a fee until I received a collection notice. That sucked when I tried to get my transcripts. I had to call the transcript service to find out why I could not get it and then I had to call the school, which then sent me to the collections company. It was a hassle but has since been removed from my credit report, so no worries there."

"When I would go to the financial aid page, it would say the average program tuition cost was like $8,000, leading me to believe that this was the average for this school. Turns out, it was the average nationally, and that the tuition through this school was FAR higher. Also, when telling potential employers about my degree, they don't even acknowledge it. I literally had one laugh when I told him where my degree was from. They claim to be fully accredited, which is a blatantly fraudulent claim. They also blatantly lie about their placement statistics. Pretty much everything they tell you to get you to enroll is a complete lie. And their degrees cost about four times what a community college or even a private not-for-profit college does. Complete fraud."

"The academic work was rigorous, but rewarding. I learned about several new concepts, theories, statistics and resources. The school challenged me, supported me and provided an educational environment that allowed me to accomplish my goals in life. Colorado Technical University gave me a platform for success."
