"I have loved my two years at Purdue University Global working towards my Associates of Science in Legal Studies. I will be continuing with my education by going for my Bachelors starting October 2021. I do love the Discussion Boards and Professor feedback. The one main issue I would have is the steady increase of "social justice" discussions (from some Professors) and lack of statistical and analytical data to support such discussions or opinions. I do not consider myself an expert or incredibly knowledgeable in this area but when I cite to the FBI (government run entity that tracks area) and a Professor cites to CNN which is citing to a study that is unproven and only supports opinion. This has happened on multiple occasions and I have taken the high road by stating we can "agree to disagree" or "thanking them for their opinion." I would like more debates like this but factually based rather than emotionally charged and supported only by opinion. Other than this issues all Professors are professional and easily contacted if you are struggling or need more time on assignments. All Professors are knowledgeable and full of information about the legal industry. The last issue which is big is that in a legal based courses we should be using bluebook citing more and eliminating APA citing as Bluebook is the legal standard. Thank you Matthew Rauen"

"I am almost finished with my associates degree in legal studies/legal support. This college has a great faculty, many resources for success, tools available to help with all situations (tutoring, paper checking, APA formatting). Overall I have immensely enjoyed my time here and the experiences i have had with the staff and faculty. I love the opportunities i will be able to explore with my degree. The program plans are very inclusive and have gotten more in depth and more challenging in all the right ways."

"Dont do this to yourself! This is the absolute worst school ever. They withheld over 7,000 worth of financial aid from me. They made me keep retaking the same classes. They tried to hold my degree because they registered me for a class I already passed. Please listen to me and dont enroll here. This has been the worst experience of my life. Please save yourself the stress and trouble"

"This school is just horrible. They are not organize at all. I enroll here two times and did not go thru the enrollment. They had my financial Aid package and expected me to go to school not knowing what I was giving. Never Have I ever been to a school where I did not l know what I was getting. I also had to do the orientation 3 times because of my advisor not knowing what she was talking about. I ask to speak to the manager and he was very rude. He told me that If I couldn't do it 3 times how was I suppose to be able to do the course work. My enrollment advisor was also rude. My phone stop working and she sent me a email saying That I blocked her number and All I had to say was that I did not wan to talk to her. I asked for a new enrollment advisor and never got one. I being waiting for financial aid for a month and When I called they said admission said they didn't have my transcripts and I know I gave it to my advisor. She said she didn't send it to them somehow. Now this was literally a 1 day before I started school. They said I had to wait 5 days before I would know and wanted me to start school because I get a 3 day trial. I refused. I told them I would not believe that in least there is a document with my john Hancock on it. This school us for business purpose only not education. Another thing there degrees are not really accredited. I would advise everyone to go to a online school in there state and stat away from this school."

"A true review of a school would emphasize on the curriculum and the process in which it teaches, not the financial aspects of it. How is the school to blame for example, for a person needing to be hospitalized and feeling that she is deserving of something that the school does not agree with? Or perhaps a financial aid situation or money due? This is ridiculous! This is a for-profit program so perhaps it would have been better to seek a degree from a state funded school if your issues are financial-based. I have had nothing but an amazing experience attending this school. I am 49 years old, am studying to obtain my degree so that I may proceed on to study law. Purdue has allowed me to streamline the process, proceed with the portfolio program in order to knock out many classes and I am very close to receiving my degree in this regard. They are unbelievable and the work and classes are rigorous. You must put the work into the program to do well or even pass. It is not easy. I am finding it rewarding and challenging and very satisfying to complete. I do not understand placing the blame on a teaching institution for someone else's financial woes. It is improper and not for this forum. I too will end up with a student loan bill. That is what happens period! I love this school and I owe them a ton of gratitude. S. is my advisor and has assisted me all the way to almost the end of my journey. I would not have wanted to attend any other school and I cannot wait to receive my degree from Purdue, a prestigious institution, to which I owe my future to and of which I am proud to display on my wall once received. Thank you Purdue for making my lifelong dreams a reality."

"This is a horrible money hungry school. Every time financial aid request a document and I submit it they reject it. They accepted over ten thousand dollars worth of financial aid on my behalf and never sent me my refund checks. I had to call FASFA on them and report them to get my money. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. They will put you in debt and they will not help you."
