"I'm currently switching careers. I wanted to earn a Bachelor's in Business before going off to law school. Decided to take an extra year and earn my MBA too. I had previous college experience under my belt so was able to complete both degrees in 3 years. There was a lot of reading, research, and writing both programs. However, in both programs there were classes that less effort was needed to get a good grade. This sort of program CAN be a paper mill, but there is good instruction to be had for those who devote themselves to the assignments and get as much out of the experience as possible. I would say this is par for the course in higher education today. There wasn't much in the way of extra curriculars. I was an active member of the pre-law society for 3 years. I published many articles for the group to read and to collect useful information for those interested in pursuing a legal career. Sadly, the involvement stopped there. the group never materialized past being a message board. Bottom line, this program can be a good experience if you make it. I have seen many classmates pass without a clue on how to read a balance sheet or do basic research on topics. That's probably the worst of it. I have seen many class mates graduate with a great understanding of business and how to apply it to their unique careers. So, I would recommend this program to anyone who has a drive in a subject area. I also think that having a natural curiosity for academia is essential. Again you can get good grades by doing minimal work, but in order to truly earn a degree in this or any program, serious commitment and drive will need to be there. I just don't want anyone wasting money for pieces of paper that won't help them."

"Purdue Global made me believe in myself again and reminded me that I was capable of achieving my goals despite my age. Every single individual involved in my learning process from my professors, to technical support agents made my learning and success their priority. They were always there ready to help whenever I needed them. I sincerely say that I am very satisfied with the education I have received at Purdue Global because even though the program was challenging, I learned to think critically. In addition, the way the program is scheduled and designed, students can balance their personal life and still achieve their academic goals. Lastly, I impressed with Purdue Global’s transparency because all information and transactions are detailed. Therefore, I always knew were I stood as far as student loans and grades. Overall, attending Purdue Global was a great experience for me and my family because I did not have to neglect them to pursue my goals. Please do not expect an easy program because it is not. However, you will be satisfied with what you learn and you will be prepared for the real world. Lastly, my advise to anyone considering furthering their education is: Go for it! Four years are going to go by regardless. So, why not invest them achieving your dreams? Always remember things do not end until they are started."

"PG has made working full time & going to school way easier than it would've been somewhere else. My professors were caring, great listeners, and friendly. The option of doing the alternate seminar assignment helped decrease my stress levels as time was short and life was overwhelming during the pandemic. My advisor was super helpful, the career assistance has been a huge help. At first thought, the idea of online only, in a different state, and without many committed times scared me. However, this is exactly what made it successful. There is no doubt I would do this again, at PG. I am proud and excited to be graduating from PG."

"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."

"I had the privilege of participating in Purdue Globals' healthcare administration program where I have earned both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree. I loved my college experience at Purdue Global. First of all this college offers in-state tuition programs which reduced my tuition by 10%. The online classroom navigation was user-friendly and the professors were knowledgeable about the courses, patient, helpful, and accommodating."

"This school was so easy to navigate in my classes and even making sure they had the program that I wanted. Their websites are easy to use and maneuver. All my professors were nice and knew what they were talking about. I feel like I didn't learn anything that I did not need to. The assignments and discussions were always well written and explained well. There pricing is also fair. I will be going back here for my Masters next year."

"Purdue global is the best online University for anyone to attend to begin their masters or their bachelors degree. I recommend the school. You take two classes and then you’re done in no time. Advisers and professors are always there to help you out no matter what. They give you a lot of ways or reaching them and so much resources to achieve your goals and finish assignments. I almost gave up in my masters program until my advisor stepped in and turned everything around for me in a positive way. She gave me a different outlook. I remember feeling like that in my bachelors degree program. Again, I had another advisor that took charge of helping me turn my mind into what I started in the beginning. And that was to stay focus.Whatever it is you want to do after you graduate, the career development center is there to help you out. I almost turned them down but luckily , I went back for help with résumé Issues. I did not know I didn’t know a whole lot of stuff about resumes. I am happy that I gave them an opportunity to teach me and show me how to properly structure one.. I often wondered why I was not being called for jobs and now I see. Purdue global is a wonderful university. After receiving my bachelors, I went back and got my message degree. I am now a new masters degree graduate of 2022. Thank you Purdue global university."

"This "school" is just a business cares little for the student experience. When my advisor told me to take two high level courses I couldn't have possible been ready for, I had no recourse. When my professor refused to help me, there was no recourse. They....don't...care. They just want money."

"Officer of the registrar for returning students isn’t helpful. Nothing like trying to further your education with someone who doesn’t know answers to basic questions. Student advisors stop advising when you hit sophomore level, even when you reach out to them. To think, you need guidance and they are unable to guide you because they don’t know say the masters side but you can’t talk to a masters SA unless you have enrolled completely in said masters program. I’m two weeks from graduating, have no career opportunity guidance, I still have questions regarding furthering my studies, and I haven’t heard from a single advisor in the masters program even after a 3 hour call in and bouncing around. Professors for the most part have been great, they back end office of PUG is not great."

"Where to start? I'm currently attending Purdue global University for information technology. When I first started they told me that you would take two classes per semester and you would graduate in 3 years, which I thought was great because that's awesome relatively normal for the bachelor's degree. So I said sure I'll go to your school because my work is currently paying for it and it wouldn't be coming out of my pocket. I have taken so far one course per semester the last two semesters when I was told originally you need to have two courses per semester to graduate in the next 3 years. As of now my graduation day is 2028. I'm not spending the next six years of my life with this school and when you tell them that is wrong and they should change that or give you two courses per semester they have an attitude about it. As of now meaning today I got two courses which is great as long as it stays that way. I haven't had a decent professor yet, I think the discussion boards are joke because you can't really talk to your classmates about any assignments you may have trouble with rather have to stick to the topic on hand. They grade you for these discussion boards when I thought I was going to school for information technology and not a journalist program. I shouldn't have to write papers on papers on papers about how I would do certain kind of work in information technology. It should be about my skills and what I know but the reason I'm going to the school it's to learn about this material and half the time the professors expect you to know this already. They are supposed to teach you but instead don't care. The advisors are a joke because I keep telling them I don't need a certain course but they keep adding it on there even though I have taken it previously in another college. Overall I wouldn't want to go here because it's a joke and if you are thinking about doing information technology just beware of that you're writing papers Non-Stop for course that should be more Hands-On rather writing papers about what you would do for a company like it is an interview. The professors don't care about you or when you ask them questions they ignore you and expect you to figure it out on your own when it's their job to help you out but they don't. If I could recommend I will suggest other online schools"
