"I am glad I chose to go through this experience and finish what I started so many years ago. The excel track is an excellent medium for someone like myself. I would recommend it for anyone that needs to move at their own pace and wants to learn topics thoroughly before moving forward. Thank you for helping me make this a reality!"

"Was not impressed with the financial aid team as they got me signed up for school to only find out months before graduating that I would need to start paying $1000's of dollars a term to stay in school. Then to have anyone who acknowledged that they did wrong was not happening! I had some good instructors and some who just didn't care of wouldn't show up for seminars. But... purdue still took that money for school awfully easy. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone and will not do anymore work through them. Horrible experience!"

"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."

"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!!"

"I've attended 4 schools now, College of Lake County in Illinois, two University of Wisconsin branches, and am ending my studies at Purdue Global. This is by far the best experience I have had with a school. - Every class I've taken is teaching skills that are directly applicable to my career goals and personal life. Examples include fixing my professional online presence in a Professionalism class and learning how to invest efficiently with specific recommendations in Finance. - Teachers are committed to helping students. I've never had a class where I felt I was being gatekept from the next step. On the other hand, I experienced this at previous institutions. You still have to work hard and study, but so long as you reach out and continue to work - you will get the grade you deserve. - Classes follow the same scheduling throughout the semester, thus deadlines are easy to remember. - Online Seminars allow students to communicate with each other and the teacher. This is the first online program where I've had online seminars and I can't imagine not having them again. Engages the students to participate in class, and allows us to really get to know our professors. - Student services are fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable, and expedient. A complete turnaround from what I've experienced at other schools. Tech support is available 24/7. My one caveat is that UW systems had a better tutoring system. They used a third party program that was available 24/7 with an interactive communication tool, but at PGU they use staff as tutors, which personalizes your help but limits the times that tutors are available. I also wish there was interactive software to share screens with tutors during sessions. - Tons of tools and career services to help you find a job. - Flexible class scheduling, perfect for working adults and parents. Because I have a lot to deal with in my home life, I can only take 2 classes at a time while passing with an A or B. PGU uses a 10-week semester system which is allowing me to graduate 3 years earlier than at my previous online program. They also allow students to use a fast track system allowing students to graduate quicker if they use applicable skills in their current careers, and a portfolio class which applies a similar concept and gives double credits. This is life-changing. - Online campus is easy to navigate and access. I can use it through an app on my phone or iPad, or using a laptop or desktop with the same accessibility and ease. My other improvement area would be with advisors, mine suddenly changed without notification. But the school is so easy to navigate that I rarely have to talk with my advisor anyway. I highly recommend PGU, and am forever grateful that an acquaintance recommended this to me over a year ago. I wish I started my collegiate experience here."

"The Purdue Global Excel Track program was the perfect way for me to finally complete my degree. I moved through two years of classes in just 15 months. The classes and assignments were challenging but manageable. I was able to vary my class load based on my work and home needs, taking less classes during the months where work is busier and more in the slower months. I’m extremely happy with my decision to attend PG and excited to finally earn my degree."

"I have found Purdue Global to be both challenging and rewarding, I have not had a single issue with Tuition assistance, or admissions. I got my transcripts in on time, and I pay my tuition on time. All of the professors to date have been helpful, and responsive. The coursework is not easy. If you cannot discipline yourself, and dedicate a few hours a night to study and homework, you will fail or struggle. No one is going to hand hold you through your degree, you must be prepared to work hard, read a lot reach out when you need help. Additionally, If you think that this is just another online course you can quickly click through, that would be an incorrect assumption. Having attended a brick and mortar school in the past, I have found the classes to be just as meaningful and challenging. As a working and traveling professional the excel track program has been perfect for me. The classes I am taking have helped in every way in my job. At this stage in my life, going back to a campus 3 nights a week, is just not feasible, so I like the online classroom format."

"Well, I felt the need to write a review because I saw there were so many negative ones. I do not understand the inflamed comments and there experience certainly does not match my own. I am attending Purdue University Global and I love it. There have been some details I have had to learn, but then this is normal in any professional or educational experience. Purdue Global offers a class where my work experience can be assessed and I can receive credit for my life and work experiences. No one else does this, I know I have checked on this for many years. Every other institution that offers work accreditation usually has some type of exclusion and you never get full credits. Everyone from my advisers to my professors has been professional and knowledgeable. I truly appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the Purdue family and finally earn my bachelors."

"I am sorry to see so many negative comments. I am 3-terms in with Purdue Global and have had nothing but good experiences overall. They accepted a large number of my transfer credits, they have a partnership with my employer to provide full tuition, Ive never had any challenges with the Financial Aid department in processing my tuition reimbursement or receiving my scholarship funds, and my academic advisor has been thoroughly helpful. I am expected to graduate July 21, 2020. While my job is not contingent on this degree, I am excited about the credential and possibilities it brings, and I do feel like Ive learned a great deal from all of teachers, who were very knowledgable in their fields."
