I recommend CTU for the RN to BSN program. Pros: Flexible classes, weekly lectures, discussion boards and papers are due on a regular schedule, you feel like you are part of a class, and the student portal is engaging. Cons: They did not accept all of my nursing coursework from University of Texas, Austin and there was definitely a heavier written component than UT. Otherwise, this school is an excellent option for the full time nurse returning to school mid career!
If you get a call from CTU hang up immediately it's the worst experience I've ever had in my life. All they care about is money and it's never ending with the money they want from you they will harass you day and night for money. Check out the reviews the school has there horrible I wish I would have checked out the reviews first.
If you get a call from Colorado Technical University do not answer the phone this is the worst experience I've ever had in my life. If you want to experience CTU online all you have to do is rent Nightmare on Elm Street. They Hound you for money day and night. They call you so many times then you feel like you're being harassed. It's basically an online school scam I would definitely stay away from. You don't really know who is behind the scenes at this place. You don't really know where your money is going to trust me on that. There was one person that I thought was kind and his name was Taylor and that's about it.
By chance, I came across CTU, when it came up in an ad on my browser. I searched and found the Entrepreneurial Concentration for their MBA and thought to go in that direction. My goal is to be better qualified for a management position, with the degree, or help my business knowledge as an entrepreneur, in case I can't get hired, being 55-plus. I may try and apply for Business Education career, though. I have no regrets, as I'm nearing the end of the my enrollment, with a 3.7 average. I've learned a lot and it was not "easy", as assumed with an online college. The one thing I didn't agree with is the, "learn at your own pace", promotion. You've got 5.5 weeks to complete the session and the assignments have deadlines, that you most meet, or you lose points. Some of them are quite involved and you CANNOT get a more than a couple days behind, or it's going to be rough trip, getting back on track. Academic writing is required and I've seen some students try and get away with "copy & paste" submissions to the discussion boards, with simplistic answers. I often wonder what some of their grades are, because you have to answer classmates' submissions, which can be very hard, when it's obvious that they are not keeping up with the assignments, themselves. It's worth it, especially if you're working on a promotion, that requires a degree/advanced degree. The experience will NOT be a degree mill one. I recommend CTU for graduate studies, rather than undergraduate. I went to DeVry and for-profit schools are expensive and burn through your financial aid, too fast.
This school's administration is a joke! The financial aide office constantly was screwing up my financial aide and couldn't seem to figure out what or how to fill out anything and even after telling them exactly how to do it what to file how to fill it out they would screw it up 3 times over, the student success coaches never seemed to help anyone succeed at anything and couldn't be reached when contacted, never returned any contact when reaching out, the career experts and sources office was the worst career/ job website and coaching I have ever seen or tried. They're another never help you can't reach them and no returned contact office. Will make you need maximum student loans with financial aide and still owe out of pocket expenses! Most of the teaching instructors were great and really did seem to care and would do the most to help you learn and succeed. The rest of the faculty and administration there were always screwing up and screwing over and that's only if they could be contacted at all. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!
Having completed a bachelor's degree with CTU, I continued with a master's program. A bachelor's degree is just not enough these days. The course of instruction was substantial and it took hours of preparation and work to complete assignments. While the course did take a number of hours of my time every week, I also learned a lot and its paid off for me. The degree has been extremely valuable for me, as it has increased my compensation and career advancement opportunities.
As a veteran focused on completing a degree, CTU was very useful in completing that goal. The per credit cost is a bit high, but the value of the degree makes that cost worthwhile. I had good luck with instructors and support staff. I was motivated and did a lot more work than some of my peers. Some of the instructors graded quite easily, while others were more strict. Over the years, the degree has paid for itself and I am glad the program has provided me with the benefits of increased compensation and career advancement opportunities.
I graduated 2018 with a Bachelor's in Healthcare Administration. I was able to immediately enroll into a AIT program and then get a job as a long term care administrator. CTU was a wonderful place to get my degree and advance my career. I am now considering going back for the Masters Program!
The admissions process is very smooth and straight forward. It is almost hard to believe how much they want you to succeed and really stand by your side even in the doctoral program. Anyone who feels that school is too hard and needs the support should really check out ctu
Colorado Technical University is great from admissions to so far the Doctoral Symposium. All of the staff and instructors are amazing and very knowledgeable. Looking forward to working with everyone. I would recommend this school to everyone. This is my third degree program I am going through with CTU.
