"This school is straight garbage. All they want is your money just like every other private school and they don't even care about the students that attend there. They have no consideration for the students that struggle financially or care for their needs. My first year I got fined for something that my roommate did because I wasn't part of the situation and missed a hearing since I was out of town after I already explained I was not part of anything my roommate did when I was out of the room. All they care about is money, money, money. Absolutely zero consideration for students. Such a waste of time and money. You're better off going anywhere else that is at least half decent and actually has financial flexibility with your needs."

"I loved my time at Concordia, I made memories and friends that will last a lifetime. The community at CUW is unmatched, the small class sizes allowed me to get to know not only the professors from my Major classes but also the professors from my general education classes. I could tell that all of my professors liked this too, they made an effort to get to know you. I played sports in college and that experience was also amazing, playing sports at a small college is really something special. Everyone is there because they love the sport, even if they aren't the best at it. My favorite part of going to CUW was the emphasis on faith development. The campus ministry people there really care about the students and were always ready to help support any struggling student. They didn't just want to convert you, they cared about you as a person."

"I attended Concordia University of Wisconsin for my undergraduate in nursing. If I had to change where I would go to get my undergraduate I would not. Concordia University and the College of Nursing program they have is beyond spectacular. When people ask me what I liked most about my experience in this nursing program the first thing that comes to my mind is the professors. The professors are not only your teachers, but they become friends. They understand you on a personal and professional level. They have all been in the shoes of their students and they truly want what is best for their students and for the patients that their students are going to be taking care of. Concordia has great resources for students and they also have great financial assistance."

"My education at Concordia University was a good experience. I felt that the rigor of program was tough and I definitely had to work hard to succeed in the program. Given the sheer number of students in their program they significantly increased expectations while I was in the program and I believe this could impact students who are not strong academically to succeed in the program. I felt well prepared when I started my role as a family nurse practitioner."

"The school schedule was very accommodating to working adults having classes one day a week and still be able to graduate in 2 years."

"Concordia is a wonderful school and makes you feel as if you are at home. The small class sizes is a great way to get to know your professor and get the help you need from your professors. Concordia is a beautiful campus with a 1 mile radius. It is connected entirely with tunnels so during the long winter months in Wisconsin you don't have to walk outside."

"The counselors are loyal but will ignore you. So far, Teachers will not honor assigned web schedules and can fail you anytime in incomplete. Not a fair online program for working adults or non traditional students. Ruins your GPA, not for honor students. Students of any age are not treated with respect but slaves within the system. Beautiful campus and the Campus life itself ranks higher than the online classes. Online is not mgt properly. Very poor team work within the office administration and communications. Sad, A waste of student grants and loans."

"My graduate program has extremely dedicated faculty who only want to see us students succeed. They have been very encouraging and helpful. The curriculum is very practical for an aspiring professional in the field and includes internship, independent study, and international options. While I highly value my program and the education I have received, the program is not very diverse in terms of students nor faculty. Additionally, while I did receive financial aid awards that covered my expenses, I wish there were scholarships available from the school for my program which would have reduced my student loan debt."

"Concordia University Wisconsin had a great online program. I have not completed my final practicum, but they have been so supportive of my hard work & needing to work around my schedule with working full time. I currently am working as a nurse educator at a Home Care Agency & it has been important to them that I complete my degree. I loved the classes & the instructors were very helpful & gave detailed feedback."

"My occupational therapy graduate program is great. The class size is very small, making it difficult to get in to, but once accepted, it is a great environment. The students are very supportive of each other and willing to work together and help each other. The professors are wonderful and very accessible. When in their offices, their doors are always open and they are always willing to talk and answer questions. They provide students with their home and cell phones and are almost always accessible. The program provides many hands-on experiences, including many opportunities to work with actual clients in the community, great fieldwork placements in area health care facilities, and pro bono clinics on campus run by students and faculty. Students are well prepared for occupational therapy jobs, and employers in the area recognize this. The campus and surrounding areas are not very conducive to a fun college life, but Milwaukee is close by. There are good work opportunities in the area for students. Public transportation runs to the school, but does not take you to many places. A car is necessary. There are apartments in the surrounding cities for reasonable prices."
