Independence University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (68)
If you were to ask me a year ago about the possibility about going back to school to get an higher education, i probably would of laughed at the idea thinking that it was impossible. But after talking over the phone to the Admission's at Independent University in September it was impossible to let the opportunity fly by me. They made the impossible, possible. They helped take the fuss out of applying and just made things feel like it was possible. I have never met a better school administration that went to the lengths that they did. Even after the fact of being enrolled and attending classes the school still keeps their word by being just a phone call away if there were anything i ever needed help with. If your looking for a school that is supportive and overall great instructors and fellow students then i advise you to give independence university a chance. it probably would be the best thing you ever did
if you are looking for a flexible program that will work with job and family, than this is it. Great instructors, easy online platform, great resources and tutoring available to help get you through the program.The program is intense but quick and you will have your degree in no time.
Learned their RT program was on probation and then learned they werent fully accredited as they say they are. I dropped 4 classes in when I realized what was going on and ended up owing a lot of money with classes that of course wouldnt transfer. Please dont make the same mistake I did and be very sure you know about EVERYTHING before making your decision to go here. I dropped and joined a school close by thats much cheaper and less time and am making the schedule work.
The Worst School Online School Ever They Have The Worst Financial Aid Services Because They Take All Your Grants and Student Loans I Think This School Is A Scam Because I Think They Get Rich Off People I Would NOT RECOMMEND anyone to go to this school
I am a current online student and I just want everyone to know, this is the BEST UNIVERSITY to attend!!. I highly recommend them, they are honest, efficient and it's an accelerated program where you can get your degree and work in your required field. I have really enjoyed my experience here, I love it and I want to see more and more people pursuing their degrees through Independence University. They are the BEST and I truly mean that. I wouldn't try any other university!!!
I want to make it clear that I do not recommend this school to anyone. Especially not anyone who is attending college for the first time. I made a big mistake by enrolling. CL, if that's even his real name, told me I would have to pay anything and that my financial aid covered everything. Lies!!!!!!!!! They have me signed up for loans I didn't even know I was getting. Then, took my pell grant for the tuition they said I didn't even owe. I'm not even sure how many thousands of dollars I owe as of now. They really played on my emotions knowing I am pregnant and was looking for a way to go to school online and take care of my unborn son. Please... read this review and take need. They are scam artist. I'm not saying all of this, because I failed a class or anything. My current GPA is a 4.0.. but that doesn't matter when you feel dooped. Stay away!
Do not trust this school they over charge for what you get,an associate degree 38,000 ???? They cost more then living on campus & on top of that you will not get a refund & they will say some corny little line like you have to pay back that money why put yourself in more dept . Which is true but either way you would have to pay the money back instead of returning the money that is left over they charge you so no extra change for cost of living.. Also the advisors are horrible the little b**** they call "C****" is rude, & if you try to transfer she will tell you off .... just trying to save a person from my same mistake !!
Loved this school. I never would have finished the traditional route. I received tons of support, help, guidance and great teaching. This degree took me out of my dead-end job into a a management job with an insurance agency. No more working per hour, but a salaried position with benefits. The degree cost more than the local route, but I finished in half the time doing classes from home. No way I would have finished locally in less than 6 years, and this took a little over 2. I highly recommend this school.
I am a very proud recent graduate of Independence University where I earned my business degree through hard work. I am also eternally grateful that I did not read all of the reviews prior to enrolling because it could have cost me a great experience. Reviews are personal experiences, with some amount of bias. It is our personal opinion, expressed. My personal experience with IU was great from the start. My advisor remained in contact with me and responded to all of my questions with courtesy and respect. That is important because it is an online school, thus you do not see the people with whom you've entrusted your educational endeavors. I don't know what the faculty or administrative was like prior to my enrollment, or even what improvements were made. What I do know is that my instructors were all knowledgeable about their subject and experts in their field. During lectures, they were engaged with students. If you have a desire to further your education, this is not a bad place to start. What I've learned, I have already begin applying to my current position. As far as accreditation is concerned, that is something I am not too much concerned about because I am not attempting to transfer my credits to another school once I complete my Masters.
DO NOT ATTEND! Independence University is a subsidiary of StevensHenager College which is part of a growing whistleblower lawsuit against their Utah-based system of nonprofit colleges and is expected to expand due to a federal judge declining to toss the suit. In addition to this, Independence University is ONLY ACCSC accredited. This accreditation is a national accreditation that recognizes that they are a trade school and therefore are not recognized by ANY higher-education University if you wish to get a higher degree,
