James Sims - 11/25/2019

"A for-profit, family-owned school. The diploma you get here isn't worth the paper they print it on. You should look for a REGIONALLY ACCREDITED school. There's a reason CSI can't earn a regional accredation. Don't waste you money and time here. They focus on recruiting students, not educating them."

"Do not expect actual feedback from your professors, this is a instrumental part of learning that CSU thus far seems to lack. Grading responses are automated pre typed and your name is simply inserted. My assessment grades say the same exact thing word for word every week and its upsetting. To put effort into your education and receive no effort in return. Grading is considerably inconsistent and when seeking aid on this matter Ive received nothing. This is a university of convenience, not quality."

"Excellent school. I was a bit wary still about pursuing an online degree, but the education I was received at CSU was excellent. I was impressed that they were able to balance a flexible schedule with a rigorous course of study and high expectations. It definitely took a lot of work, a lot of effort, and yes a lot time studying, reading, thinking, and writing, but I learned a lot, became more competitive at my job, and more competitive in the marketplace as well. I would definitely recommend."

"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."

"Courses were relevant and thorough. The staff and faculty support was great compared to my previous college. Free course materials encourage students to enroll and pursue their educational goals with no hefty financial constraints. Educational quality matches any traditional brick and mortar school."

"This school is complete garbage! I know you will read this and sign up anyway but you too will end up regretting it. This school hires mediocre, self absorbed professors who grade you as if you are their colleague instead of their student. They have zero interest in teaching you anything but instead want to put you down to make themselves feel better. This school acts like they are on the same level as Harvard and NO ONE will even accept any credits you earn here. Complete waste of time. Financial Aid staff and enrollment staff are super nice but that's because they want you to enroll and then you are turned loose to deal with the garbage professors at this school. Don't waste your time and money!!"

"I love CSU and the staff is wonderful. They have many great programs and support department to help students. These department includes student services, writing, and the math center. I find this support to be a great asset for CSU. I have attended a few on-line universities and CSU is the best experience I have ever had. Furthermore, they offer affordable tuition and this is AMAZING !!! I AM PROUD TO BE A "CSU STUDENT"."

"CSU classes were much tougher than the brick and mortar classes I'd become accustomed completing my undergraduate degrees. After completing my CSU MBA I was promoted to the top 1% of the military rank, and later retired and I continue to find even greater career success Fortune 500 companies. The education I received has been paramount to my success and I'm grateful for CSU's option of completing my degree at my pace. Thank you!"

"This college is a joke, the financial aid department will ask you for documents you will never now they exist, also they will ask for transfer credits from whatever institution you study, even if you're not interesting in transfering credits. They will lose you time for weeks. This is not a military friendly school.DO NOT LOSE YOUR TIME"

"A tremendous learning experience. While not nationally know, the classes were challenging with a lot of work involved. The cost was reasonable and the instructors and staff were tremendous every step of the way. A great school to earn a degree for working people."
