Diana - 6/8/2015
Degree: Respiratory Therapy
Graduation Year: 2016
"I am a current student of IU and I love this school! the program is acreditted and very well put together. I work as a respiratory therapy assistant while in school and I was hired because the program is recognized and approved by the CoARC. I am already seeing better opportunities for myself and I must admit it is difficult to find a clinical site, but start looking for one as soon as possible and once you have found one you are all set to study and complete clinical. I have been to a local college and I enjoy online school much more than a real classroom. My advisor is available to help me via phone and email and so are my teachers. I have so far had a great experience."

"Thoroughly enjoyed obtaining my BSN through Independence University Online Program. Teachers are very motivational and pleasant. Independence University strives to help you succeed. Would further attend the MSN program if my personal funding allowed."

RT Grad - 4/7/2015
Degree: Respiratory Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014
"I would not recommend this school to anyone unless your only option is online. The curriculum is very hard if you don't have someone in the field to ask questions. Find your clinical site BEFORE you start!!!! If you are a visual learner you may not find this course easy, also just because it is online the course load is Heavy!! Expect at least 20 - 30 hrs of class work a week."

"This school is very fun to me, and I am glad I attended this school. The instructors are great and the glass is great. I was kind of hesitant to keep going because half of my pell grant and my unsub/sub money went towards my tuition and I have to pay for school and I cant find a job. Hopefully the next half of money comes to me and I can pay for it. Overall this university is great, I would suggest the university to people"

Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2017
"In my opinion, ppl who love this school, and how it operates are the students who tend to take full adventage of becomming a success in what they do...also my opinion and experience, I have seen ppl who have a hard understanding of what is expected is due to lack of participation and courage to continue pushing forward to success. You will always find what your looking for no matter what school you 're attending, whether good or bad. Credit is given where credit is due! I am a honorable student and maintain awesome grades because I put my all into what I want...I'm sorry for those of you who have had a bad experience, but I personally love this school, and looking forward to my perfessuonal career. Best of luck to all of you on your journey to success!"

Degree: Small Business Management
Graduation Year: 1994
"Worst school that makes a lot of promises that they do not keep. They pretend to care until your money goes through. Then all you see is lies. They don't care who they sign up if they can get paid. Worst experience ever. Made me not want to go to any other school."

"I really do love this school. I just started here in the month of August of this year in 2014. I would recommend this school to anybody because this school is excellent and all the instructors work so well with you. I am working on my Associates Degree in the Medical Specialties program and so far and i am loving every bit of it. I have recommended this school to two other people and they just started last Monday and they are loving it already as much as I am. If you are looking to go back to school try Independence University because I promise you that you will be making a very good decision. They are all so helpful and supportive."

"I didnt want to go to college, I felt lost at first but then I just decided to walk in and everyone made my experience nice and easy they took me step by step for applying! So easy I was not nervous anymore i was actually excided they worked with me they understood me and made my monthly payment something I could afford. Its perfect I never thought I would do this, for anyone who says this school sucks you might of just had a bad experience or just been negarive about it. I work and stay busy at home and still manage to do my school work its just great! Teachers are amazing, even the homework is easy with all the help i recieve from my free resources."
