"Woefully poor professors that happen to teach at a well recognized institution. Kaplan/Purdue Global instructors are not only awful, most shouldn't be employed in their fields, much less teaching others. It's like putting lipstick on a pig, Purdue is taking money from many in the military (tax payers, and the last question in this is a classic example) and those taking out large student loans, for professors that truly are doing a disservice to both the student and the Purdue name. I can't stress enough how poor the education, online, and professor experience is. The poor reviews are accurate, the lawsuits justified, and those that are sales people working for Purdue pushing this sham are not only bad people pushing a bad product, it's absolutely unethical and immoral."

"When I originally joined this school back in 2017 I had high hope that this would be the school for me. After 2 years now and a whole new layout to the school I am uncertain and will be transferring. The school took a major change when it changed the school name .They changed the website and other things while students are trying to learn and that is very unprofessional. I am not pleased with the 10 weeks for 1 class and I think it should be shorter. If you don't more then a few days set aside you will fail and as far as if your struggling with the classes and need help from the tutors don't expect much help from them. Every Professor you get will have different rules and guidelines so there is a gray line in the grading. Some Professor's you also might get more than once. I think the school is okay but I think there could be improvement. If your trying to get financial help and need to talk back in forth with the financial aid people that will be a struggle as well. Financial aid for Purdue could use some major improvements. I had serious issues and never got them resolved. because there was very little communication. Last thing you will get some Professors that are more helpful than others and you will get some Professors that take there job way to serious. Early on in my schooling things were going great the next thing I new things took a major change and I was only a few courses in. Like take a chill pill I'm learning things should not be this intense for a brand new student and I think that's why the graduation rate is 25right now because things don't make sense. I was in a class with a student who was going for the same stuff as me and they were graduating in a month and It seemed to me I was in a class that I should have took near the end of the year . There just seems, that some things don't make sense when you talk to other students."

"I attended Kaplan University before Purdue University bought them out. With that said, I cannot tell you how Purdue actually works. However, I will say that Purdue has done nothing to change our experience. Each class is a dog and pony show. I almost have my associate's degree and I HAVE LEARNED NOTHING. You get very basic, egg washed concepts with software classes. Basic operations, increment/decrement, etc. Listen... For profit colleges are HORRIBLE! The more you pass, the more money they make. They bank on you strictly passing, not learning. Let that sink in. Please, do NOT waste your time at this college. You will go into debt and feel robbed of so much time and dedication. I wish I could go back. I gave this EVERYTHING I had & did my best. For nothing. This is a real review. Don't fall for these 5-star reviews. I promise you... You want to pick another college. You deserve better."

"I found Purdue Global to be very convenient and cost effective. As a person with 24 years of IT experience, and no degree, I was able to get credit for my technical certifications and military experience and not redo what I already knew. Additionally, the instructors were responsive and understanding if you needed more time to complete a project (with deductions for tardiness)"

"I'd like to start with: a lot of the reviews are either about the cost, financial aide, or personal problems. You cannot blame your own issues, misunderstandings, etc on the school. This schools financial aide department is incredible (speaking in terms of the Milwaukee, WI department), they've been nothing but helpful and have given me more understanding on the process than any school has before. The cost is warranted, you're getting a Purdue University degree, great curriculum to learn, and fantastic professors. This isn't a free-ride school. You come down with a sickness, you're the one paying for the degree, not them. They are online classes, you can do this stuff from anywhere with an internet connection and computer or even a phone. They don't have to give you sympathy because you're sick and for some reason can't complete classes that are ONLINE. If you were attending a brick-and-mortar college, you'd be given absolutely no sympathy. However, I've heard from multiple professors that they allow late assignments depending on the circumstances. If you can send them a properly formatted email stating what happened/is happening, they'll most likely understand and give you some extra time with maybe only a small ding in your grade. I honestly feel like a majority of these negative reviews expect to pay $30k and get a degree in 3 months, that's not how it works. You pay the cost, you complete the classes with passing grades, and you receive your degree in the normal amount of time (2+ years) just like a brick-and-mortar college. I absolutely do not regret attending to this school. It's easy to navigate, understand, and the professors are friendly. They try to give you the best experience that they can. I can't wait to graduate and possibly attend this school for my bachelors."
