Columbia Southern University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (140)
CSU is an awesome school. I have received my B.S. in H.R. Management, and I am now working on my Master's. This school is great, staff is very helpful and understanding, and there is always someone to take my call. The professors are great, with the exception of some who tend to not be very sympathetic towards the working adult. The graduation ceremony was so nice and organized, in the heart of Orange Beach, Al. I cant wait to go back for my next ceremony, which will be 2019.
Great faculty. Easy to to work with. Being an active duty military soldier at the time and a the most senior rank, CSU provided the perfect opportunity to fit my hectic schedule. I plan to enroll again in the near future for my doctorate. In fact, I have recommended CSU to many of my subordinates and they all have moved into very successful post military careers.
I am enrolled at Columbia Southern University. This University is great if you work full-time and/or you are a working parent. The work load is manageable and the curriculum is current and relevant. If you are looking to increase your skills for career opportunities enroll in a bachelor or masters program. The class rates are competitive as well.
Excellent school for those wanting to save money and working. Curriculum is the same as other schools and professors are true professionals. I have nothing negative to say and it is an excellent experience. I am doing the life pace program and currently finishing courses in 4 weeks. If you are concerned with accreditation just move in the last year to Waldorf.
My overall experience at CSU is absolutely amazing. The courses and work load is just right. The professors and student advisors a great, the LifePace Learning option (10 week flexible term) is perfect for my work schedule. The online student portal is easy to use. Nothing but the most positive things to say about CSU.
The University has always assist me when asked upon. I enjoyed the pace,the amount of work and the guidance without confusion. I recommend the school to people that needs flexibility. The instructors are always there when you email or call them directly.
CSU has been helpful in advancing my education for my career. CSU understands that everyday life can become an obstacle, and the professors as well as the counselors, are eager to help. My counselor, Amanda, was very helpful with any questions that I had, and was able to give the advance I needed to carry on. Thank you CSU staff for pushing me towards achieving my goals. Jennifer
I found that CSU was the best choice for me. The class style means you have to be a self starter. As long as you put in the work you can do this type of school. If you are someone who is very busy with life, this is your school. I have truly enjoyed this school and would suggest it to any firefighter or police officer I know that needs to complete their education. Great staff and impressive operation in Orange Beach AL. Many of my co-workers have spoken with me about this school and have signed up in the last year and are equally impressed. I wish them the very best as an institution of education.
I found that CSU was the right school for me. The work load dose make you have to be a self starter. As long as you put in the work you can do this type of school. If you are someone who has to have a teacher standing over you 24-7 to finnish, this is not your school. I have recomened this school to alot of my coworkers and have had a real good response.
CSU is not a bad school but it does require you to educate yourself about accreditation. CSU is a nationally accredited university and if you desire to attend a regionally accredited college there is a very good chance that the regionally accredited school will not accept your transfer request. If you start at a nationally accredited school then you will need to end at a nationally accredited school. Now, with that said there are some rare exceptions as it is up to each individual regionally accredited school to decide for themselves if they will or will not accept your transfer credit. I have transferred my CSU credit to my local regionally accredited Community College (one declined, the other accepted) in which they accepted a full years worth of credit, and once I earned my BS Degree in Criminal Justice from CSU I was able to enroll in a masters program with a regionally accredited University (CSU's sister institution Waldorf University, but from what I have read it seems they will accept CSU Degrees but not individual courses). It is however up to you to know the difference in accreditation and then be willing to shop around to find a school that will accept your credit should you decide to change from Nationally to Regionally Accredited institutions. I do hope this information helps you to be more informed as you decide as to which institution of learning you wish to attend.
