"If I can give this school a zero rating I would. From the teacher to the finical aid office to the register office. I have gotten failed her. This school caused my finical aid money to get taken because of their ignorance. And my classes I tried to drop through the register office, they wouldn't drop it. Causing my GPA to drop drastically and now me having to owe the school 3,000 thousand dollars. Now I can't get back in school, with know fault of my own. Until I pay them 3,000 thousand dollars. With absolutely no fault of my own. Now finical aid they want even give me money that is due to me. They are refusing to and I still need money from finical aid. I have bills and school to pay for. And the teachers are worthless their and do not help you at all . So please don't come to this school people. Are you will wind up like me. Without my culinary bachelor degree and depression trying to get a degree from this school. And lastly no department not even the supervisor want to help you here over the school. Just know that you have been warned. I'm feeling sick about this right now."

"This school is really easy to work with. 100% online, I have not once had to go to campus. Professors are very responsive. I work a 40 hr week and am able to the program full time. It consists of 8 week courses. Just about all classes are 1 discussion per week and 3 APA projects. I take 2 8 week courses at a time. Total time it is going to take me to finish is 5 semesters. This university isn’t as big as others, so they don’t offer every single class every semester. Less than $3k per semester, I think I pay about $2,300 a semester). However, I am an in-state student. Definitely recommend the program to anyone thinking about it. Clinical sites are chosen by the student. Brush up on APA format. This university has definitely improved my writing skills and format."

"Honestly the best college to attend if you have a low budget and need assistance. Most classes are available online, except the science classes, but the sciences are so worth the time an money. All the professors are there to help you and want to help you succeed. If there are questions, there are plenty of people there to help you out with whatever you possibly need. I loved this college!"

"The Eastern New Mexico University MSN program with emphasis in Nursing education is excellent. Fully online, with no on-site requirements, and in-state tuition less than $300 per credit hour. The instructors are accessible and dedicated to student success."

"I attended this university online as a non-traditional student. I cannot say anything about the campus as far as dorms, campus safety, diversity, or the food. However, I can review the professors and their teaching practices. They seemed to be understaffed with advisors because one of my Speech Language Pathology teachers was the advisor for most of the students in the degree program. He was overworked and you could tell because he had absolutely no personality and could care less about advising. The online classes are good, though. Some professors provide video lectures with their classes, but most of them do not. You basically just have to read the assigned chapters and write discussion board posts each week. Depending on the professor, you may have a quiz or test every week. Beware of professors who do not post due dates on the syllabus. I had one professor, as a first-year teacher, who was so unorganized and I didn't get my grades until the end of the semester. I had no idea what my grades were for the entire semester. I finally emailed the Dean to get it all sorted out and now his performance is noted on his record. That was the most stressful and frustrating semester, as I relied on my grades to graduate. If the professor is going to assign assignments and not grade them, he is not doing his job in my opinion. Paying for a class with an absent teacher is not ideal for anyone. This was the only truly horrible teacher I had throughout my time here as a student. The tuition is low, which is ideal for everyone, but especially for non-traditional students who have lots of bills to pay while attending school. I ended up getting my tuition paid for with my pell grant, which was really nice! There are also a few scholarships you can apply for on their website. Overall, I would recommend this university because of the affordability and various online programs. My only complaint is that I wish they offered more online programs."

"ENMU made it possible for me to complete my entire degree online. I was able to log in an watch lectures that had been given earlier in the day to students on campus. This made me feel like more of a 'traditional student' than with any other online learning program I have participated in. I was able to put faces with names, and learn the same information as everyone else. If attending campus is something you want to do but are unable to, ENMU will make you feel right at home in the online learning community."

"The program at ENMU is a hybrid program that allows for distance learning while still requiring semesters in campus. The curriculum is modified to include courses not offered by other universities and the program and clinic director take care of you"

  • Degree: Chemistry
"ENMU is an extremely affordable University, which is the main reason I chose to get a master's here. The Chemistry program is extremely small (less than 10 students), so you get to know your professors very well. The size has its disadvantages though - there are only five chemistry-specific professors, so upper division chemistry classes are limited. Also, though we have funding for research, it's not a sum comparable to top research universities. ENMU is located in Portales, NM, which is a town with a population around 17,000. If you want to go to a mall or the movies, you have to travel 20 miles to Clovis, NM, and public transpiration is almost non-existent. For me, the small class size, intense professor interaction, and affordability make up for the lack of variety in upper level courses, limited funding, and few things to do."

"All staff and students are very friendly and are willing to go out of their way to help you. Some of the housing is expensive, especially considering the town it is in."

"Eastern New Mexico University, located in Portales, NM is a small, but lovely school. The school is located in a small town filled with kind people. There are not many activities and you have to have a car to get around. There are larger cities and plenty of outdoor activities located just a couple hours away in every direction, however, which will fill up your weekends if you find the time between schoolwork. The school itself contains people always willing to help you when needed. I cannot speak for departments outside of Anthropology, so my review is based on my experience with them. The department is small, which makes us a tight-nit group. The archaeological focus is on the Southwest United States region. Completing the program grants you a MA and requires a thesis, which would make you a more desirable candidate for employment than someone who earns their MA through a MA/Ph. D program that tests you out, because you have completed quality, publishable research. The classes cover theory, statistics, plus technical classes that cover almost any basic archaeological analysis that you could want to focus on and is expanding. First year graduate students can be GAs and the tuition and cost of living is very cheap. The school is also located next to Blackwater Draw, the Clovis type site, and offers a field school there every other year. Overall, my rating is high for the quality of education that you would earn at ENMU. The location of the school can be off putting for someone coming from a larger city (I am from New York), but if you can get over the location, the school and experience is more than worth it if you want to focus on archaeology."
