Columbia Southern University Reviews - Bachelor's in Human ResourcesSee reviews of all programs at Columbia Southern University
I am currently attending CSU. Having previously attended a traditional school, I was a little nervous about online classes but I am pleasantly surprised and impressed. Classes are challenging and the life pace program lets me submit work at my convenience, which is important to me working full-time with sometimes varying schedules. The teachers have been very accessible so far. This school is definitely geared towards independent, adult learners and may not be the best fit for someone straight out of high school. Prepare to write lots of papers.
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.
I received an AAS in Business in 2011 and a BS in HR Management in 2013. This school changed my life! Eight months after receiving a BS, I was promoted to HR Manager. A year later, I received a second promotion and more responsibility. My salary has increased by 45% in the past four years... all thanks to CSU. This school is what you make of it. Education alone will not get you to the next level. Work ethic, drive, motivation, and the right attitude is key and most critical!
CSU is a great school!!! The professors in the Business Management/Human Resources program were excellent. They offered informative feedback on written assignments. I would highly recommend CSU to anyone seeking a degree but still has to maintain a home and family.
Disbursement takes forever!! Do not go here if you're a struggling and think funds will help you out. You'll turn gray faster waiting for them to release funds. Classes are very easy and weren't that challenging. Once enrolled the "niceness" stops. My advisor was horrible about communication. I wish I went to my local college.
I'm very happy with my decision to go to CSU. I had great professors and staff that was willing to assist me in my journey. The only negative I can say is the disbursement process is extremely slow. A lot of students need funds to help while attending school. I've had to wait 3-4 weeks to receive funds after the semester has started. This week disbursements posted but because offices are closed wednesday until Monday of next week, nobody has received funds. The financial aid office just says we have 14 days to release funds. Let me tell you, they take full advantage of those days. There shouldn't be that much of a delay and it's unfair to students and needs to be changed. Other than that, it's a great school and affordable compared to other online schools.
This University is perfect for the military member! I have taken classes while stationed in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey. I cannot recall ever having an issue with enrollment, tuition, books, or getting support from advisers and faculty. All you have to do is put forth the effort, show a little discipline, and CSU will get you there! My wife is a UCF graduate, and my kids are both USF graduates. All three could not believe the support I get from CSU. I am the last in my family to get a degree, but I can't imagine where I would be without the support from this institution. Thanks CSU!
