"Purdue University Global afforded me the opportunity to use my work and life experience for credits. I was about to earn over 60 credit hours and cut my completion time down. The courses were taught by industry professionals that provided a realistic view for those that may be new to the industry. I would definitely recommend anyone to look at Purdue University Global as an option."

"Purdue University is a fabulous school and the idea of being able to take classes on-line in an accelerated format worked for my education goals.

"After attending several universities and community colleges while in the service, I was concerned about the acceptance of my already earned credits as well as getting credit for my military training. They did a great job in helping me in so many ways. My Health Science advisor assisted me in getting the classes that I needed to graduate on time and the financial aid office was tremendous. My professors were knowledgeable and the learning experience was great."

"I initially learned about Purdue Global because the company I work for offered a certification through the university. My company paid for 98% of the tuition and I completed four ten-weeks sessions with a 4.0 GPA. I then applied for a scholarship for the bachelor's program through my company and was accepted. After learning about the experiential learning program, I decided to pay my own tuition for it, and was awarded nearly 40 credits upon completion. The ExcelTrack program at Purdue was not covered by my employer so I applied for student loans and completed my degree within less than two years of starting. This program was amazing. It took a lot of hard work, a lot of essay writing, and a lot of discipline but I earned my bachelor of science degree in a very short period of time and for less than $15,000. My experience at Purdue Global was nothing short of miraculous. After feeling like an educational failure for the past 35 years, I finally completed something that I had desperately desired. The professors at Purdue Global were, almost without fail, helpful, responsive, and encouraging. I graduated on December 23, 2022, Magna Cum Laude. If you are able to work independently, follow directions, and consistently turn out decent essays, you can complete your degree very quickly and very economically. I also took individual regular courses and the pace was incredibly doable for me. I so enjoyed my experience at Purdue Global, that I am currently enrolling for the MBA ExcelTrack program. I expect to complete my Master's degree in less than a year. The critical reviews I have seen here seem to be primarily the fault of the students who are writing them. If you can't follow directions, read the rules, or understand the expectations of secondary education, that is on you. There were no surprises as far as what I was required to do as a student and plenty of timely communication if I failed to meet a requirement or deadline. As far as gatekeeping on the ExcelTrack program, that is not entirely accurate. Yes, you are required to wait for a grade on each individual class assignment before you can go on to the next module, but you can take as many different classes as you want each semester. I took four to five. So when one module was turned in for one class, while I awaited that grade, I could work on a module from another class. There was no downtime for me. My goal was to complete 3-5 modules per week and I never had to wait to continue. You are required to complete the Capstone as a separate and individual ten-week class but that allows time to focus on the somewhat expanded requirements of that course. I can proudly say that I am a graduate of Purdue University Global and would (and have) recommended it to any prospective adult student who is ready to finally get their degree."

"I'm writing this so that if you are thinking about attending this school, that you do this so that you don't go through what I'm going through. In September, Lee County was hit by hurricane Ian and we had no electricity or internet for quite some time, so I called the school, asking if they could put me on a leave of absence, ( I called two different times about this and spoke to two different people ) who both said that I was fine to go on my leave until January. Well, come January, they now tell me that I never had a leave submitted and that I was dropped for not attending school. Just imagine how I feel right now. I'm hoping they go back to their phone calls, since they're recorded and can see that I did call but realistically they're not going to. Then to find out that I had a block on my account from an issue that was dealt with over a year ago. I did have a few good professors and its a great online schedule, but when you have issues arise, good luck, and make sure you go above and beyond to make sure other people are doing their jobs because if not, you'll be like me. Now I have to wait another month to start school, when I shouldn't have even had to wait at all."

"Purdue University Global has allowed me to attain personal development in a field outside of my current roles and responsibilities. The personal growth that this has provided me will allow me to pursue a variety of opportunities. The classes were informative, and I was allowed to apply the concepts I learned on real world business assignments that had a direct impact and improvement on my job. The classes are definitely an investment in time, it was challenging sometimes to maintain a balance between work, school, and home life; however, in the end, I am very happy I decided to pursue this opportunity."

"I have had a great experience at Purdue in both my undergrad and MBA program. The instructors were both knowledgeable and had real world experience. All of my instructors were helpful and always willing to help me succeed. I also had a great advisor who was willing to give me advice and was concerned about my success. I used the tutoring lab several times and it was always a positive experience. I have really enjoyed my time at Purdue and though it was a challenge I feel enriched and well educated because of it. Thank you to all of the staff at the university and I will miss you all."

I was able to complete my degree, on time, Magna Cum Laude despite all these obstacles. I would definitely recommend Purdue Global University to anyone who thinks college is not possible.

"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."

"Teachers are great and actually teach during seminars. Also, the workload is manageable and they accept military tuition assistance. Apply to the school is easy and enrolling in classes is user friendly. The only downside of this school is their financial aid department. There needs to be better training with financial aid and a better process of receiving scholarship money."
