"The university provided great curriculum, faculty, and an overall positive experience. I started the Masters of Science in Performance Improvement program in 2011 and finished in 24 months. The academic advisor was easy to work with and very helpful. The online faculty was understanding but yet demanding in the sense that they pushed you to dig deeper and provide more in depth reviews and answers."

"My dream was to obtain a senior management position in healthcare. My problem was that I didn't have the time in my schedule to attend a brick and mortar college. And finding a babysitter was always an issue. Grantham University helped me achieve that dream by helping me earn a Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree. At first I was concerned because it was a 100% online format. But I decided to enroll and see if it was something for me. I was pleasantly surprised to find engaging and highly relevant courses that utilize current, proven healthcare and business administration models. Their courses were well laid out and challenging. I'm not going to tell you it was always easy, but if you apply yourself and keep up with your homework, it can be done. My favorite part was learning to assess the legal, regulatory and ethical challenges faced by the healthcare industry. This was very helpful in my real world position. My advice if you attend is to work closely with your student adviser and instructors. They will make sure you get the help you need to graduate. Grantham is a great school and I highly recommend them to all of my co-workers."

"This college is fully accredited. I was able to attend U.S. Army Command General Staff College Officers Course (which requires the student to have a bachelor's degree from a fully accredited college or university) Masters level education thanks to my bachelor's degree from Grantham University."

"Having had a crash and burn experience at a state university I attended Grantham for the flexibility. The thing I liked most is the clear degree plan, they gave me a clear list of classes required to earn my degree, books and labs included with tuition. Study hard at your own pace, pass the test and earn college credit. Some of the classes were excellent and some of the classes were just average, but like any higher education you only get out of it what you are willing to put into it. Most of the problems I had had were of my own making, not meeting deadlines etc. Administrative support was always polite and professional. On the negative side a small number of classes require improvement. Overall if you meet the student responsibilities you can obtain a good education, understand it will be up to you."

"As a former Submarine Sailor in the US Navy I appreciated that Grantham University took my SMART transcripts and allowed me to start as Junior! The fully online courses allowed me to continue working full time while taking my classes around my busy travel schedule. The 8 week courses were a challenge, but my advisors and instructors were always helpful when I needed them. Advice on course loading, helping me with my Veterans benefits, and shipping my books to whatever town I was working in at the time allowed me to get a degree in a field I love. I also managed to land a job in Project Management a few months before graduating. Thanks to Grantham University and the VA I have my undergraduates degree, a great job, and no student debt. I chose to return to Grantham to earn my Masters!"

"DO NOT ATTEND GRANTHAM! The administration as a whole are lazy, careless and not very helpful. My Student Advisor calls or e-mail me back when he's ready. My CS192-Programming Essentials teacher NEVER gets my e-mail, so I never get the help I need from her. They schedule classes wrong and they really don't care (IMO) if you succeed or not! Financial Aid is the WORST!! I'm 8 weeks in and they still haven't processed my FA. There are students that started classes a month before me still waiting and don't you think think about calling or e-mailing them, because you will be on hold for 30 minutes max and it hangs up on you. If you're lucky to speak with one they're rude or act as if you questions about your FA is some form of disrespect. There's ALWAYS a glitch in the FA system. They're cheap because it takes 2 years just to receive an Associate degree? The only time you can get an immediate response from anyone at Grantham is through their Facebook page! DO NOT ATTEND GRANTHAM!"
