"I had an excellent advisor when I first came to Purdue. When she left, my replacement advisor was/is terrible. I have requested a change of advisor 3 times and have been ignored. She does not call, even when I leave messages. I have spoken to her manager and other advisors, who can't do anything. Terrible experience and when I call and asked for help get nothing but a runaround. Most instructors are good, but when you get the bad ones nothing to do but suffer through. Inconsistent standards and no measure of accountability from professors."

"This is a wonderful program! Purdue University Global strives for excellence at every level and provides the flexibility I needed. I highly recommend Purdue University Global. They live up to the Purdue name and long standing reputation of being a leader in education."

"I am a retuning student, but under Kaplan Universtiy I received my AAS in Criminal Justice in 2013. Since returning back to school, Purdue University Global went above and beyond my expectations with any online college. They also have military career advisors that help support and get you enrolled into school. The mach class as a refresher for returning and new students was nice. This feature is wonderful because it lets you explore and a quick essay, allows you to grasp what the semesters are about and how they will proceed. The best part was Purdue University Global used my previous core cirriculums to help me fill-in areas of opportunity to help me achieve my degree in a faster period. The school is wonderful and I would come back to finish my Master's degree anytime. The one drawback that I would say might deter me from returning to PUG is the lack of programs offered."

"I began attending a small local college and earned my AS degree. I then began taking courses for my BS degree. About half way through my BS degree, the college was bought out by Kaplan University. I was brought into a room and told that my AS degree would be listed as Kaplan and that I might as well continue attending BS courses at Kaplan, because the credits would not transfer or be considered of high quality. When presented with the documents, I was threatened with financial ramifications, and was told that I had no other option. I completed my remaining courses and had two degrees conferred by Kaplan. After some time I was informed that Kaplan had been bought out by Purdue Global and received new transcripts that no longer listed Kaplan. I called and spoke with some very polite employees at Purdue Global about my diplomas. Although my official transcripts will say Purdue, my diplomas will not. I've already experienced this situation in the past, and believe that the Registrar’s Office as the ability to provide official diplomas to former Kaplan University students. The right things to do, would be to ensure former students are supported and provided matching documentation."

"I have been attending Purdue for over 4 years and plan to continue for my masters in BA. My experience here has been great. Instructors are consistent and easy to work with but also helping you learn the material and engage you into doing your best. If you plan to attend via remote I would highly suggest adding Purdue University Global to your list of schools to consider. I was nervous starting out but this has been nothing short of a great experience and I look forward to continuing to earn my masters and who knows, one day maybe return to help others learn from Purdue as an instructor myself."

"The professors are genuinely there to help teach and educate their students. With that said, the issues are with the degree plan. The class requirements change resulting in needing more credits to earn your degree. In my case, I had 300 level courses in accounting completed. I took a leave due to COVID, then when returning to wrap up my last three classes, my 11 credits for accounting were removed and replaced with needing 10 more credits in basic 100 level accounting. This resulted in needing five more classes instead of the three left on my transcript. This makes no sense at all and seems to be a ploy to scam more money out of students. I was assigned all my classes and never deviated from the credit recommendations given to me."

"Overall a good experience considering I am a full-time professional and father of two. I do not like that the graduation requirement is 180 credits and then you take your capstone course. Just say it takes 186 credits. Additionally, the capstone course should NOT be a team course. It has been very difficult to accept that I may not graduate with the GPA I would have earned on my own. Going through my program, working hard to be at a 3.97 and then have to rely on others to maintain that grade level is unfair. Some people are fine with lower grades, especially a the end of the program. They have checked out and I am stuck carrying the 'team' so I achieve what I set out to do. Otherwise, a great experience. Cheers!"

"Purdue was an absolutely amazing school. Christina, who used to work in admin was the sole reason I started at Purdue. After starting it was an easy transition into the platform used and was a great way to learn. It was very accommodating to me and the way I learn"

"With less than 6 courses left, it seems as if the excel track is more tedious and too much for accelerated courses. I am going to stick it out but it is way too much compared to previous terms. It’s hard to working full-time and keep up with the work... which I’ve done since 2018. I loved all of my courses up until now and learned a lot. There’s the typical readings... now unusual required book work like a typical community college course with assignments, labs and quizzes that have to be completed while still having a paper/competency assessment per credit(6 credit/modules) per course if not more. It’s creating burnout real quick. And, the chapter work has more than 20 questions... do you know how many chapters you can read per module? So. Time. Consuming. Ridiculous. I hope this is not the case for the duration of my degree. I will also be giving bad surveys afterwards. I will NOT do my masters there. 😡 Another issue is the excel track students are not eligible for any of the schools scholarships."

"Up til recently I had a fairly decent impression of the school but a certain professor has completely blown that. You must write discussions once per week. No problem I did that. This CPA professor tried to tell me my paper had grammatical errors and spelling. This was a joke as I ran spell check with word and grammarly. So he can’t even grade appropriately. Apparently they let the computer grad papers rather than be a real teacher and review/teach."

"Very unprofessional Professor at Purdue University Global. Some of the Professors are not there to teach, but for a paycheck in my opinion! I had been assigned with some of the worse teacher and its said because this is my second degree. If I would have know what I know now, I would have picked a different University."
The post about Purdue maxing out aid is Not True.

"I would just like to correct the post about Purdue University Global only maxing out Federal Aid, as the Associate Degree programs have a tuition cap of $22,500, and the Bachelor's Degree programs are capped at $45,000.00. I would also like to say that I learned very useful and applicable information from nearly every course I completed. The course work is relevant and challenging, far more challenging than the courses I took at Clemson. (which is ranked only 16 places under Purdue University) Not only are you required to learn what you would normally learn in any college course, but you must also learn the incredibly valuable skill of time management, or you will not graduate. I think that people have this idea that online learning is easy, and that students are given questions that google can answer. I just want to clarify that this is not the case at all. Nearly all of the work you are required to do, consists of papers and presentations that are all put through Turnitin analysis, where any score of 25% or more is an automatic fail, and subject to a plagiarism investigation and potential expulsion. It is not an easy accomplishment and anyone who earns a degree from Purdue University Global should be taken seriously in circles of industry and academia. Like any school, however, there are some areas that could improve, and for Purdue University Global, it would be in how communicative and informative advisors are. They should give much more information prior to students having to search or ask, and they should definitely make decisions about the student's academic path with the students and not for them. Other than that, I had a very positive and rewarding experience."

"Do not apply! It is run by a for profit company. Purdue University just ruined their name! Run away as fast as you can. A bachelors degree will end up costing you $44500! They will leave you in debt and hiring companies are recognizing the poor quality of online education."

"The student advisors were nice when I started. After I signed on, my advisor became increasingly difficult to connect with. If you do not mind writing out extensive emails to address issues, you will probably be fine. I find it easier to talk to an actual person, so I found this aspect annoying. I had issues with my portal and had to keep up on my records. I had incorrect data on my degree plan several times. Also, when I would call the registrar or cashier's office, I was treated in a very rude manner. My advisor was wonderful at first, but was less helpful as time went on. They are great until you needed help clearing up some kind of issues, and let's be honest here, you are going to have something come up at some point! I picked this school for the price and ease of enrollment. You know how the old saying goes - you get what you pay for!"

"Purdue University Global was great experience for me. I felt that Purdue was extremely military friendly. I did have a few issues with registering for couple classes but it was always worked out between my education center and Purdue. Classes were challenging, but there was always some sort of support from either the professor or a tutor. These classes are not something you could just breeze through, you have to put in the work over 10 weeks to make the grade. I loved the platform, and how most of the professors would work with me as I had to travel a lot. I feel that I did learn a lot from my experience with Purdue Global and that it is helping me with my career."
