"It's a fairly affordable option for people who need to do school on the side. I take two classes every 10 weeks, and it's worked out great for me personally. With an apartment and two dogs to take care of, this program was able to easily fit into my schedule. This is a great option for anyone looking to get a degree/certificate to put on their resume to appeal to more employers. It shows them you are capable of learning difficult topics and broadens your job capabilities."

"This was my first Online learning experience. The program moved very fast (10-week semesters) and I understand that the instructors don't have time to tell us everything. I was not prepared for the amount of homework we were given. I was not prepared for how difficult it would be to find an entry level position. I contacted Career Services a few times, they were helping me with my resume. I heard back maybe twice and then I never heard from them again. Overall I would say that it was a really good experience and I would recommend the program to others. I realize that nothing is perfect. My Student Advisor was the BEST!! I would not have made it thru without my Student Advisor."

"Nothing about this school is transparent or straightforward. The education is great but the student experience otherwise is absolutely dreadful. I just received a bill for over $5000 after graduating from my program and receiving my diploma. I have been completely blind-sighted like this multiple times throughout the 13 months I attended here. The financial department is a joke, student services are a joke, they don’t care once they’ve got you reeled in. I’m so disappointed in the way this school is run because I wanted to love it so much. The certification credentials I obtained that were paid for by my program won’t even benefit me in the career field. I have to spend another thousand dollars for a sought-after credential. I wish I would’ve enrolled and completed my education elsewhere, I would’ve saved thousands."

"I won't be returning (as they want you to) or recommending. I had maybe two good professors and one great one (notated below), but the other bad/mediocre ones and the administrative/"support" staff make it unnecessarily difficult and intolerable. Hindsight is 20/20. I should have gone through AAPC. Many employers require certification through AAPC or AHIMA anyway. Professor JJ is one of the great professors for the Medical Billing & Coding program HS292 course. If you do end up attending, request her. You should know that a 40-hr in-person practicum is required for the Medical Billing & Coding program HS292 course, no alternate assignments, no partial credit."

"If you are looking for a school where you don't really learn much, but it's easy and backed by the name Purdue, then this is the school for you. When I first found PG I was excited because the cost per credit hour was really good compared to other schools. Then when I saw how many credit hours each course was, it made a little more sense. A normally 3 credit hour course every where else was a 5 credit hour course at PG, so the credit hours might have been cheaper but there were more of them. The test are easy because they are all open book, and most of them given you either multiple or unlimited tries to take them. I'm all about an easy A but you're not actually challenged to learn the material. You have one 1-hour seminar each week, but not a lot gets covered because you usually run out of time because of all the non-course related conversations. Some courses have very little assignments but the medical coding classes have so many assignments per week that you're not really taking the time to figure out what you are doing, you're just trying to get it done on time. Lastly, if there is any content or books you want for when you are finished to use as study material, make sure you save it! They revoke your access a week after you finish your courses."

"Purdue University Global is a great school. The classes are wonderful and really prepare you for when you’re ready to do job applications, interviews and credibility! The professor are the nicest teachers I’ve had. I feel this school has helped me a lot with my future career in Medical Billing and Coding."

"From the very beginning it seemed like a good idea to pursue this school but the way you are rushed through the paperwork without the proper explanation of how things work with paying for school and when it came time to pay back and ways to get assistance I had a very poor experience. The online courses are informative but half the time emails are not responded to and there is poor communication throughout the whole facility. I have talked to my advisor maybe twice since I have started here a year ago. I really wish I would of read reviews and did more research before going in debt with this program at this University."

"I loved pg. Just don't care for my student advisor. She never contacts me or asks how I am. When I had Laura mason she was amazing, not I have affeecion and she is not good at all. She never calls me or reaches out ever. It bothers me that she is not at all helpful. She even scheduled my last two classes at the same time seminars and wouldn't change it"

"This online course was awesome. I took a few classes at my community college and did not pass. When I attended Purdue Global University I did pass. This school gave me great material to learn and pass those courses. I am a mother of two and I made this happen with Purdue's help! Im absolutely ecstatic i was able to accomplish this and find some better employment! Thankyou!"

"Terrible school, only concern is being able to enroll you as soon as possible in order to take your money. Academic advisors and financial aid supervisors tell you what you want to hear and never what you need to know. I finished the medical billing and coding program and tried accessing previous course material that all students who participated PAID for and was told I am unable to access it anymore since I havent decided to continue on with any other programs. So basically youre screwed if you want to continue to look at work youve done and review past course material/books even though you paid and finished the program! I need to review the things I did through the program in order to prepare for another certification exam! If youre considering going here for medical billing and coding, DO NOT."
