"This was an awesome experience! I love the staff as well as all the business offices there! I was able to sail through with flying colors because I had a great team of professionals and fellow students to aid me. Also the material and study resources are top notched and offer everything a student can need! I am a husband and father of 8 and I was able to complete the course with few interruptions! I recommend INDEPENDENCE UNIVERSITY to anyone who is looking to better themselves and their career! Thank you IU!"

"I started IU in 2015. I have had nothing but excellent instructors, advisors, and deans. The course work is not in any way easy. My instructors are always a phone call away or email, they always got back to me within 24 hours. They have always been courteous and helpful. There number one goal is to help you succeed. I'm not understanding any of these negative reviews. There is nothing negative about this University. I am now in a Practicum course and it is required that I go and do an informational interview with a health care administrator. This is awesome in itself because it gets my name out there, but also just the first Healthcare Administrator that I interviewed, told me that after I graduate, he wants me to send him my resume and he is going to send it to everyone he knows that is looking for an Administrator, he wants to be the person that gets me a job. This a huge opportunity! If you are looking for a college that is invested in your success, with great instructors, look no further!"

"I attended this college online. Got a nice laptop. Teachers are wonderful and I leaned a lot. However, you DO NOT receive any financial aid back. I attended the graduation in Salt Lake City, Utah and it was awful. Very lame. They didn't even offer us anything to eat and it was very unorganized. Plus, they have not helped me find a job."

"First let me say this to ALL that is reading this post. This is the worst school I ever attended. I graduated in November 2016, this university gave me the run around. When I started at IU they baited me in to make me think, once I finished my life would change. I am in more debt then what I started with! The degree seems as it is neve recognized any where in the universe. I have been back and forth with this school to get assistant with finding a job it is the same bs everytime I call. I have did the same job search too and the same results. I am saying this school will have you out of money, stress or living on the streets. There was no stipend during time I was there. It was like basically I struggled the entire time in college and I am still struggling now with the degree from this college. I am saying do not go to this school. No time to research this school because your time and money. There is more I would like to say but I will leave it at this!!@"

"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"

"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."

"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!"
