"I would recommend CTU to anyone because the professors are awesome and will work with you to make sure that you understand the material. They all want to make sure that you are going to succeed. This was the best part of my life and I will never forget it. You will have long hours of studying sometimes but in the end it will pay off."

"CTU is a great school and the stuff is always willing to help and assist. If you have any question, I mean any question, make sure you ask your success coach. It is better to know ahead of time, than not know at all. It does not matter what type of question, just ask. Good Luck!"

"My classes was great and straight forward and you do have to study. Make time for all of them. Basically I had a great deal of deaths in my family but through it all I made it and I am 62 years young. Don't ever let a number get in the way because that's all it is a number. CTU is a great University and the staff is great and will help you any way they can."

"I have enjoyed every day of what I have learned from my degree program. Having an opportunity to get back into school was very exciting at first. I was able to work my full time job was demanding at times, but yet I pushed on to complete every assignment that I had to do. Having a determination to complete what has been started made it that more enjoyable for the reward that was coming at the end. Every Professor that I had was very helpful and knowledgeable about each subject that was part of the course. If you don't understand the assignments there is a multitude help that is available to assist you, such as fellow students. library and the Professors."

"I was a bit skeptical when I heard about CTU, but it's a decision that I will never regret. The virtual campus is very convenient and it has access to every tool that you need to succeed. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They give the experience, here at CTU, a personal touch that continues to inspire long after graduation. I would recommend the school to anyone that wants to truly succeed in their career."

"I am writing this review to steer as many inspiring doctoral students away from the DM Program because CTU treated me like trash. First, when you start the program the staff and faculty boast about working on the dissertation right away. In fact, I was at one residency and the research and pertinent dissertation were not explained at all. I was given the excuse to go to another residency later in the program to find out more information. Financial aid and the rest of the school treat you like money by solely being professional bill collectors. In fact, financial aid is so lousy that FA advisors will give you too many loans and then have U.S. Department of Education request the money back leaving you the bill. I had this happen twice; once as an undergraduate with CTU owing 7000 dollars and a second time owing a 1000 dollars. I called it quits when this happened a second time just last month! Financial aid at CTU is incompetent at best. Also, being one of their doctoral students allows you to get completely ignored by what the school calls student success coaches. Please keep in mind that CTU will use you until you are fed up then spit in your face and charge you any way they can. I have an MSCJ and BSCJ from CTU while these are their best programs. The problem with a DM is that it is less respected than a Ph.D., which is what I am going for now. Management in practice is completely different than management in theory and CTU by no means provides a good program for applying management like the proclaim calling the DM a practitioner degree. Don't believe me, enroll and find out for yourselves? I can almost guarantee that CTU will be unsatisfactory. This is why the majority of doctoral programs are not ranked. By the way, I now attend University of the Rockies and found this to be a better alternative. I am in their Ph.D. in Organizational Development and Leadership. I like this program because they publish guides on IRB and the dissertation unlike CTU which is fragmented PDF documents spread throughout the doctoral library. Despite the down sides to CTU they are cheaper than University of the Rockies and provide more dissertations to view than my current school. CTU does have a rigorous program because 1 class transferred into my Ph.D. In ODL and this was a research course. However, I found when going out and having to do the research for the dissertation UoR seems to be the best choice because all of their requirements are listed and up front unlike CTU. I don't think there will be any surprises here unlike CTU because money is dispersed only twice a year and FA told me they don't have screw ups in their financial aid department. So far so good!"
