"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."

"Unfortunately there is more of a focus to enroll students than the quality of education received. I personally graduated with a stellar gpa. However communication with staff is not a top priority. There is not an effective grievance procedure if complaint is in regards to staff. I believe there are some excellent degrees offered by the school, however I would not recommend a master's in legal studies to anyone. While it is great to have a master's degree, most interviewers ask me what is my degree because they have not heard of it, jobs within policy and legal fields. Overall knowledge acquired cannot be taken away but the degree was not worth the money nor was the experience what it should have been."

"Prior to enrollment, I debated between Purdue University Global and a community college. Being a working adult, I thought the community college experience might be a better fit. Ultimately, I chose Purdue University Global as it was important for me to earn a bachelor's degree. From day one, my first online inquiry into the program, I have been pushed to succeed. From the financial aid office to my academic advisor to every instructor along the way, I have had continuous support and motivation. The program has been challenging, but it has been worth it. In four weeks, I will be able to say that I am a Purdue grad! I will graduate with a 4.0 GPA and plan to start the MBA program the following week."

"Purdue has been an amazing school and experience and I found all the professors to be amazing with helping to understand the content they were teaching. It has impacted my career in a great way and helped me be more productive in the office. The writing classes have helped me with properly writing formal papers also."

"I remember when I got the news that Purdue University was going to acquire Kaplan University, a for-profit online college. I was attending Kaplan University at the time, and was incredibly grateful for the opportunity. I believed that overnight the value of my diploma that would say "Purdue University Global" had risen exponentially. The instructors/professors encouraged me to be the very best. They are all caring, empathetic, knowledgeable in their discipline, and will go above and beyond to help students. They indeed want to see their students succeed. I had to travel out of state for a family emergency. I had to take an "Incomplete" in both classes of that particular semester. Both professors encouraged and helped me to complete the courses in the specified time frame. I could not have accomplished that without their dedication to ensuring that I successfully completed the work according to the syllabus. I am so grateful that I could complete my Bachelor's Degree in psychology/addictions through Purdue University Global. I hope I do them proud in my second career."

"As an adult learner coming back after 13 years in the workforce, I honestly didn’t know if this type of program would be for me or not. I was very pleasantly surprised to find myself excelling in these areas, with all of the professors taking the time to make sure I succeeded. The self paced rhythm of these classes made for an easy transition into school while also having a full-time job. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a degree at their own pace."

"After 4 years of this school, being on deans list multiple times, 40 credit hours away from graduation, this is what I have to say: Extremely sub par teaching staff, technologically behind the ball for online learning. Over priced for the quality of education you receive. I would not recommend this school to anyone."

"I started Purdue 3 years ago and it has been one thing after another that I have finally decided to finish my degree elsewhere. In initial phone conversation with someone, I explained why I was going to school and that my employer was paying for me to finish my degree. The guy was very nice and explained as long as tuition is paid by the end of the term, that was no problem. He also said I could go through my modules and ask for more when I needed them. I started my first term and zoomed through 12 modules in about 5 weeks and asked for more. I was told I couldn’t have more since it was my first term. I was not happy because that was not told to me. Well the next term I asked for more, and no problem. The third term when I was ready for more modules around week 7, I was told I couldn’t add modules because they don’t do it after 7 weeks. Okay...again I was never told that. So the next term, I made sure I asked for more modules BEFORE week 7 and the person I talked to had no idea what I was talking about. Said their was no policy that classes couldn’t be added. Also when I started, when a CA was submitted and while waiting for it to be graded I could go to the next module and see what my assignment would be, go ahead and see what I needed to do/read. It was nice to get a jump and preparing for assignments. They soon stopped that and wouldn’t allow you access to modules until your grade for the previous was posted. And for three years they BLEW my phone up about tuition. I paid for it out of pocket with my employer paying me back for a portion. Since the initial person told me I could pay at the end, that’s what I choose to do so the constant calling was a little annoying. So this past term, I submitted a 14 page paper on Monday, January 18th. The following day I went to check on it, because I knew the professor was tough and revisions would be needed. I was LOCKED OUT!! I called and was told because I had not been active, they had withdrawn me. REALLY?! I submitted a paper the day before! The advisor said she tried really hard to get them to undo it but they refused. Said I’d have to go through the application process to start back. That was my last straw!!! So since I’m locked out, I asked to see my transcript since I didn’t know how I did on my paper. There’s no grade for that module so I know it needed revisions. (If you don’t make a B, revisions are requested which for this particular professor I expected.) I have felt the whole time that Purdue did everything in their power to slow me down. They wanted my $$$. I had a few great professors but the past 3 years have basically been a money pit for me to reach myself!! I really wish I’d have researched the school/reviews beforehand. Lesson learned in moving to another school. BEWARE!!"

"Going back to school was more difficult than I thought, but it was worth the extra work. Timing is everything and I decided to go back to school right before Covid-19. This allowed me to double up on classes and I was able to concentrate with having to find time between work and family. You just have to remember your dedication and the goal you want to accomplish. Before you know it you will have graduated."

"Purdue University Global (PG) was a great school to finish my bachelor’s. I had completed my Associate’s of Health Science at another online university, which did not have a bachelor’s program at that time. PG’s application process was easy, they accepted my previous credits, which essentially left me with the core classes. Each class required a considerable amount of time each week for reading, the discussion board posts, and writing assignments. The instructors were highly motivated, helpful, and willing to work with the students if needed. It wasn’t easy but, it was worth it in the end."
