Degree: Software Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015
"Let me begin with a statement. As with all things, you get out what you put in. So for all the individuals reviewing this school stating that they did not know about fees/ finances, or the classes were less than adequate, or even they couldn't get a decent job/ continue their education after this school; you're either extremely stupid or did not do enough research. For starters, all fees (which there is only one I can think of, Graduation fee) are plainly stated on the schools site. There is no hidden agenda or hidden fees from this school. In addition, if you do have any questions you can contact the finance department who will stay on the phone with you even when you're yelling from misinformation (happened to me a few times). As long as you stay on top of your finances and do not think other people are going to do that for you, you will be fine. For those stating that the classes are less than adequate or they learned nothing, there are two sides to every story. I am sure if you contacted their professors they would inform you that as students, they were less than average providing little to no substantial projects and posts. Again, you get out what you put in. As with ALL schools, there will be professors you think are garbage and ones you think are amazing. This is not a direct indication of the school but of the person teaching the course. Also, you can always change your professor if you think you are not learning anything or do not like their teaching styles. I have done this once during my time at CTU. Finally, getting a decent job or transferring credits. For the ones stating that you cannot obtain a job in your field, have you ever stopped to think that it is you and not your school. I am tired of people blaming others for their shortcomings. It is an epidemic in America now that we are no longer the land of the brave, instead we are the land of "you hurt my feelings". Man up and make a decision to change your life for the better and get a job based on what you learned in school. If you learned nothing, than thats your fault for wasting your time. Not the schools fault for providing you with the recipe for success. I worked my ass of to get in to the Software Engineering field, taking a low paying job in a great company just to get my foot in the door. I want to be very clear, JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE A DEGREE DOES NOT MEAN THAT A COMPANY WILL HIRE YOU. If you suck as a person, guess what, you're not getting hired. If you complain (like many of the posts I see on here) than I would not hire you either. For the gentleman that said his degree is useless in Florida, I moved from Colorado Springs to Florida and guess what, I have been accepted in the Masters program of 5 Florida Universities (UF, Nova, Florida Institute of Technology, FIU, and FAU). Trust me when I say it is not the school, its your weak GPA that the Florida schools do not want. If you are genuinely serious about higher education, especially in the IT field where CTU is ranked in the top 5 for their online program, chose CTU."
