Degree: Human Resources Management and Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

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!

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2010

I graduated with a BScIT in 2010 and I am currently enrolled in a 2nd BSc course (information systems security with a concentration in homeland security) The courses are definitely not easy. You are required to put in the work and you will EARN your degree. My instructors were helpful for the most part, with one or two exceptions. I have seen a few reviews complaining about the school, with those individuals listing their field of study as engineering. CSU doesn't offer engineering courses or any engineering degree, so I wouldn't lend too much weight to those reviews. I like the school. Otherwise i wouldn't being pursuing a 2nd degree.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

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.

Degree: Human Resources Management/Personnel Administration, General
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

I loved this school and really think it's the most affordable online degree program. Yes it requires a lot of writing and extensive research on most assignments but most of the instructors are lenient and understanding. They will work with you if you really want to achieve a good grade. In my opinion it's a great school to earn your degree and it's very doable with my busy full time job.

Degree: MBA in Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2019

CSU is a good school. My professors have been excellent and I have learned a lot from all of my courses. The program does require a lot of work but it is worth the effort since there is so much knowledge to be gained. I went to a traditional brick and mortar school for my undergrad and have definitely needed to put forth more effort in this program. If you are considering furthering your education, I think CSU is a great choice.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 1999

I attended for 1 semester, when I transferred schools none of my credits transferred. The college algebra course I took wa actually Pre algebra. A waste of time and money. Don't let the free books and self paces course be the reason you attend this garbage university

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2017

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!!

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2016

The curriculum was very mediocre. Basically just turn in assignments and expect a hundred on everything. I would advise anyone else to spend the extra money and go to a REAL school. These credits don't transfer to any legitimate colleges, although some some other bogus degree mills schools around the country will accept them.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Please stay away from this school. It is a complete waste of time and money. It takes over 3 weeks for instructors to get back to you. A complete lack of professionalism. I have to file several complaints just to get a response from instructor. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
