  • Degree: Economics
"Admin is money hungry and will find any way to charge you and hold charges against you no matter what. The enrollment center can't even follow their own rules for their student petition, because circumstances that are out of students' control aren't enough for them to accommodate simple requests, even when it states they are covered. Making me pay $5000 for classes I can't even take? Very disappointed in how they handled and decided on the situation. Steer clear of FIU. Already pulled out all future funds and transferred to my local college who deserve my money."

"Very disappointed with teaching skills and processes, online due to the pandemic made it worst. Professor would explain a already solved math problem with notes from previous classes that were imposible to follow. It was also hard to understand the teachers accent. No interaction with the class just 4 hours of talking. Waste of money"

"Florida International University (FIU) is a university that supports its students throughout their educational journey. While no school is perfect, the faculty at FIU encouraged personal and intellectual growth both in class and outside of the classroom. Professors at the university are dedicated to their profession and help students who are struggling as well as students who want to go the distance. While career services and financial aide continue to work out some kinks, the professors serve as a strong foundation to the principles and beliefs of the university. Advisors are always present to help students in need as well, and some strive to ensure that every question is answered and that no task seems impossible."

  • Degree: Communications (Strategic & Organizational)
"It was an online program. The online program offered additional support such as a Panther Success coach to keep students on track. Each week we had papers, online class discussions and reviewed relevant cases that pertained to our track (e.g. organizational communication, leadership). However, I participated in a summer study abroad program focusing on Asian cultural communication patterns such as the power of language. I spent about two months in Southeast Asia visiting Thailand, China, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Further, for my last semester, I attended one class on campus which was wonderful. All of the professors were very supportive and deeply cared about the success of their students. I graduated at the top of my class as Summa Cum Laude with a 3.95 GPA."

  • Degree: RN to BSN
"Great Institution. The program was straightforward and completely online. I was able to maintain full-time employment while completing the requirements for the RN to BSN degree. Because of the great experience I had there, it was the only school that I decided to apply to for my DNP."

"I'm technically in the CMBA program, which is designed for those who have jobs, families, etc. and need a flexible class schedule ( I go online) and also that caters to their experiences. I found the program has some fundamental issues with the way it's ran. There is a wide variance in teachers and the abilities to instruct over an online medium, and some really fail miserably. I feel most of the instructors are very good people, and will help you when you get stuck, which is great because the courses are often not laid out well or have constant technical issues with the class platform (to avoid a lawsuit i'm not going to name the platform, but it's something an artist would paint on). Aside from that, much of the material is out of date, though they state it's still valid, a focus on more recent events and the shifts in our society and world economy need to take precedence, not 20 year old case studies."

  • Degree: MBA in Management
"The program for the MBA is great. However, the service is awful. Lack of customer service and they have employees that do not know what are the steps that you need to take. One person will say something and when you call back for more explanation, another person will provide you with a completely different instruction. They make life difficult, you cannot ask any questions they really don't care about their students. It is like if you were bothering. They lack professionalism."

"FIU is an up and coming school that has so many aspects that will attract many prospective students. From its rich historical and cultural diversity to community involvement, this school has something for everyone. The curriculum is comprehensive and is cultivated by faculty who are highly qualified in the area of their studies. They are mentors and consistently breaking through the barriers of the educational glass ceiling."

  • Degree: Paralegal
"I graduated the FIU Paralegal Studies program in 2015. I would 'strongly recommend' that anyone entering this program: 1) Already be employed as a paralegal, or 2) Already have 'work experience' as a paralegal. Let me make one thing 'very clear' so that you don't waste your time & money on this program. FIU's Paralegal 'Job Board' only posts jobs for 'Experienced Paralegals.' You absolutely cannot substitute 'Edication for Experience' with any of the jobs posted on this site, at least not in South Florida. I brought this concern to each of my instructors AND the program director during the 2 years I spent in the program 'applying for numerous paralegal positions.' All of these people were dismissive of what I was telling them 'even when' I showed them the job board positions that ALL listed 'Experience Required.' So, for godssake! Do not enroll in this program 'unless' you are currently a paralegal OR you have at least 2 years experience as a paralegal. Also, do not believe the bull sh-t that you need to enroll in NALA, or become a 'certified paralegal' in order to get a job after graduation. These are 'money making rackets' designed to dupe unsuspecting paralegal graduates into paying for extra credentials that they don't need for jobs that may not even exist!"

"Great professors and online learning was very convenient, while still getting the same level of commitment from professors and peers as courses taken on campus. The degree really helped me achieve many career goals and obtain the position I wanted to be able to have once I graduated."

"I travel a lot for work and the need to acquire my degree was important to me. I did a lot of research and found that Florida International University had the degree and field of study that I wanted. Within no time I called and filed an application and was ready to go. After graduating I still get emails on up and coming events and networking socials that will further my career. Upon obtaining my diploma I realized how much I needed to learn and decided that the next step for me was seeking a Masters. If it was not for the online program that was easy and flexible with my ever changing schedule I would not have come to that decision and be in my first year now."

"I went to Florida International University for my Bachelors and the staff and professors are dedicated to their students. They gave the students the necessary tools to further/pursue their career. I am using said tools while in my Masters program (MBA - Management)."

  • Degree: Architecture
"Over all FIU is a great school with an ever expanding campus, and programs that are striving to go beyond the needs of today's society. You can get almost nothing done without talking to someone face to face, and it is almost a pre-requisite that a student speak or at least understand Spanish to get anything done."
