"Midwestern was truly a great experience. The campus is not huge by any means, which allows for smaller classes as well as more one on one time with the professors. I graduated with a biology major and psychology minor and could not be more impressed with both programs. Everyone that I came across was always so helpful and truly wanted success for the students. I would definitely recommend the university to anyone and hope that it brings more good people to this town."

"I remember my time at Midwestern to be the best experience for my education and career. I had the privilege of participating in the band and getting to have respectful college experiences by meeting some life long friends and experiencing other cultures. The education department fully prepared me for the classroom because the professors were honest and had us participate in realistic lessons and activities. I truly appreciate my time spent at Midwestern State University.Plus, I met my husband there AND were married on the "quad" at the Bolin Fountain!"
Better look somewhere else for your RRT to BSRC!

"I am a current RRT and was enrolled in the BSRC program at MWSU. Upon enrolling, I was guaranteed that MWSU's AAS to BSRC program was geared towards someone who is busy, already works full time, and that the program would be completely online. 3 semesters in, I realized that was entirely FALSE. Instructors frequently ask you to come to campus, especially when you ask for help or lack the resources needed for the class. Required books are not always listed on the book list for the course, sometimes you find out mid-semester. Lost of hidden costs and extras are also required - like web cams, microphones, etc. The worst part, you can hold an A average all semester long, but failing ONE assignment will dump that grade to an F. There is NO chance to recover either, even with appeal, and you are kicked out of the program. MWSU had a great offering, but the reality is they are NOT ready for this type of program. They should stick to the kids trying to get their license for the first time. They aren't user friendly for those of us already licensed. Look elsewhere!"

"I graduated this past May from Midwestern State University. I was part of the respiratory therapy program, specifically the RRT to BSRC Online program. Hands-down, this is the best program for RTs. I did a lot of research for these programs and several friends who went through MSU told me it was great. The professors are excellent and always willing to help. The process of getting started was not that difficult and the questions I did have were answered quickly by one of the professors. I would highly recommend the program at MSU."

"Midwestern State University is a great school with cost-effective programs and excellent support services to help students meet their educational goals. I attended MSU after leaving a larger university and felt it was perfect for me. I appreciated the smaller classes for more personable interactions with the instructor and the diversity of the student population provide a welcoming atmosphere for students from all over the world. The campus is thriving and engaging with overs 100 student organizations, and the cost of living on campus is affordable. I have met some of the most amazing professors, staff, and students at Midwestern State University and always look forward to visiting this gem of a school."

  • Degree: Communications
"As a 2012 Communications graduate at Midwestern State University, I would recommend this school to others who are seeking affordable university schooling in Texas. At the time that I was applying to schools, it was ranked as the most affordable public university in Texas. The small student-to-teacher ratio allows for ample Q&A time with professors and quality learning. The school's requirement for all incoming Freshmen to live on campus allowed for students to interact with one another more than they may if they were living off campus, and create life-long friendships from the start."

"I received my BSRC from Midwestern State University's online program in 2014. I had previously obtained my associates degree from another college and then transferred to MSU to complete my bachelors. I have to give two thumbs up to this school and program. The professors are absolutely wonderful and always willing to help when needed. The course work was always manageable while I worked full time and you get to choose which classes you want to take instead of being told you have to take specific courses in a specific order. I loved that! I highly recommend MSU for anyone looking to complete their BSRC."

"Midwestern has a lot of potential as a university. There was never a semester where some type of improvement or construction wasn't going on somewhere on campus. Of course, there is the constant complaint about parking, but this is a universal issue with colleges. My primary complaint was the lack of funding for the entirety of the math and science building. Much of the student equipment was old and fragile due to age, the greenhouse was severely damaged by hail and was not repaired for over a year by the time I graduated. There are some really wonderful professors, but many lack the funds needed to achieve their true potential."

"Great university. Medium sized campus with multiple class type options. Ranked as a US News best buy liberal art school. Tuition is very affordable and my class advisor was wonderful. MSU and Wichita Falls were the perfect mix of small town and urban. Close to DFW and OKC."

"I enjoyed the BSRS program at Midwestern State University. All of the staff in the radiology department was great. I only had one hick up in the 3 years that I attended the school, and that was just with an individual professor. But I would recommend the BSRS program to any one interested in starting or continuing an education in the radiologist sciences."

"I really enjoyed getting my Master's in History at Midwestern State. I was able to take advantage of the opportunity to earn my degree while also serving as a Teaching Assistant. Since I was not sure if I wanted to commit towards a doctorate program at the time, this allowed me to decide where I wanted to go but not rack up student debt in the process. In most other universities or colleges the TA positions would all go to doctorate students."

"I am a Master's candidate at Midwestern State University in English. There are some amazing professors at my school, and the program is rigorous. Also, the faculty is incredibly supportive, and they will help you reach your career goals to the best of their abilities. They have a very good history of placement into PhD programs. We also have a very nice campus. The cons are living in Wichita Falls and the fact that Midwestern is relatively unknown. Also, the state of Texas does give as much funding to higher education as it did in the past, so all public universities in Texas are getting to be more expensive."

"The courses are more affordable for the same quality of course work. The staff and instructors are easy to contact and will work out conflicts. The intstructors share their experience in the field as well as going over the material. The program is inconsistent and may push back graduation dates due to cancelled or rescheduled courses."
