"Being a returning student 20 years later, I was initially intimidated about online learning. Now that I've achieved my Bachelor's degree at Purdue Global University, I could not think of stepping back into a classroom. I felt the attention to detail, studies, and discussions furthered by experience more than any brick and mortar campus. I would recommend it to any returning student. The courses were reasonable in price and structure. A+ in my book."

"Gave me the tools to succeed at my current profession and gain experience first hand with the education they provided. I will be pursuing a master’s degree in healthcare Administration and other certifications that they provide. The university has the best interest for the student to succeed and has options for the student to pursue after graduation."

"I have been attending for a year. I have attended brick and mortar college in the past, but this experience is so much better. The synchronous seminars are excellent, & the option to watch the recorded live seminar later is amazing for those in any time zone. The instructors are great, the tutoring center is incredible, and last but definitely not least; as long as you keep your GPA up, you can really accelerate your learning by adding extra classes each term. The online campus is easy to navigate. Very happy with this school!"

"As an adult learner coming back after 13 years in the workforce, I honestly didn’t know if this type of program would be for me or not. I was very pleasantly surprised to find myself excelling in these areas, with all of the professors taking the time to make sure I succeeded. The self paced rhythm of these classes made for an easy transition into school while also having a full-time job. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a degree at their own pace."

"Easy to work with a busy military schedule, and tuition assistance friendly. Attendance recommended but not required for the weekly seminars, but the work is still required via a second option. In addition the workload each week is definitely manageable with my busy ever changing schedule. Even while overseas it worked well."

"As a Purdue Global student studying for my Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration, I have been impressed with the dedication of each professor, my student advisor, and other staff at ensuring I meet my goals. Each professor has given me one-on-one instruction, replied quickly to any questions I have, and graded fairly. I have also been a student officer of two clubs and one honor society. These roles have given me valuable leadership and conflict resolution skills that will be marketable in my field. The students represent a diverse global network. I have learned as much from the student body as I have from my professors. I have also taken advantage of Career Services which offers individualized instruction with resumes, cover letters, asking for a reference letter, emails with job opportunities with Purdue Global partners, and more. Career Services also invites employers to give presentations to the student body on what jobs are offered and what skills should be highlighted on a resume for that position."

"While the most part this has been an awesome experience however because my student Advisor did not stay on top of progress he left me having to complete 3 classes my final semester. Also when I enrolled I was advised I’d have more than enough funding to graduate only to find out know I’m 10,000 over what I would need and rely on the school for a grant to finish that still has me worried as it won’t post until my graduation. Also I was eligible for $14k in this grant but was only give 2k to finish school that I find unfair."

"It seems as though their is a mixed sense of feelings for this program. I'm uncertain of what other's have experienced, but I can say that I started my degree back in September of 2018. I've been able to maintain a 4.0 while doing a 1.5 hour commute everyday along with full-time work. The advisors have always been helpful, although they could be better on sharing information on accelerated degree programs. Otherwise, every educator I've had, while stringent in their expectations, have given every tool to succeed. This school has shown me the importance of time put into completing work and planning for assignments. I'd say that Purdue Global is the best thing to ever happen to me! I'll be graduating in September of 2020, and will be rolling immediately into the Masters of Healthcare Administration in September 2020 as well. Thanks for all your support and guidance during this process! Can't wait to finish up this Master's in December of 2021!!!"

"I graduate in August 2020 and so far I have had a great experience. I feel as though everyone I have interacted with has been professional and courteous. The advisors are very caring and helpful. The professors are very knowledgeable. You will have some professors who you may not mesh well with but part of being a professional is learning how to work with a variety of personalities. Many of my professors have high expectations but are also very understanding and ask that you come to them with any issues. They expect you to do college level work and most papers are to be written in APA format. They are preparing you for a career in your profession so they won't just let you slide through. I like this because it gives me the confidence I need going into the profession that I know everything I need to know. The benefits they offer to military veterans and spouses is a great added benefit. Overall great experience! Look forward to graduating soon, and continuing my masters with Purdue University Global!"

"After reading many of these reviews, I can personally say, this school as well as professors (not all), are unprofessional and unorganized. Professors will also teach a Science course based on opinions. Not exactly ideal for science courses. I'm a returning student and let me say, I regret coming back. I wish I hadn't. I had to submit an identity form before my financial aid, pell grants, or federal loans get dispersed. I was told at first my form was good to go and had no issues. A week later, I get told "there was a mistake with your form". And while the mistake was with the notary; if whoever was doing their job properly, they would of caught the mistake the first time instead of misinforming me. For the rest of you attending who are having issues with the school, please know this; if they wrongfully lie to you and as many have said, ended up paying more than what Purdue Global said you owed; that's called Fradulent Misrepresentation . It's a legal term. You guys should look it up. Makes sense why they make us waive the right to sue. If they're not doing shady things; they wouldn't have to agree to not suing. Anyone considering this school, RUN. Seriously. Must be nice lying to students and placing them in debt and damaging their credit. Good job guys."

"Been going on 6 years without medical career. They maxed out student loans to highest amounts. Most importantly, the field I studied for usually requires a nursing degree etc. They could have told me all this and saved me from alot of debt/ diff career choice. For profit not students education! Biggest mistake attending here! Save your money! Otherwise, be in major debt for a long time for a diploma that alot of business don't consider as education. I get laughed at."

"I see here that everyone has heir own experience, but I have to say, I never had a negative experience with this school. I do notice a few changes, but nothing negative. I try my best to attend all seminars, but it gets hard sometimes so to have that option 2 to complete when I cannot attend is a wonderful alternative. I do not like having to take the extra time, but sometimes it just becomes necessary. There are classes where the seminar is not required, but I still find it helpful in retention of information a bit better than I would get from solely reading the materials. I appreciate the discussions as they help to deepen my thinking on the subjects I am learning. As for financial aid, I haven't had any major issues. My payments tend to take longer to post and they send me a bill when I do not hold any responsibility at that time, but I know to wait until the grant or loan payment posts before I freak out. Everyone I have ever had to speak with has been professional, helpful and courteous so it saddens me to hear that so many people have had bad experiences with the staff, but I promise they're not all bad. I started with Kaplan in 2017. My enrollment advisor was pushy and did not understand why I could not enroll right that very moment, but after I got rid of him, everything was great! I will be done with my bachelor's in May of 2020 and I plan on attending again to obtain my Master's."

"I am a current student at Purdue university global and started out in the associates degree in nursing but quickly found out there was no assistance to help students understand the material and no one broke down how to answer nursing questions so only those who were LPN'S moved forward. After failing two of those classes I decided to go a different route. My current degree plan is Bachelors of science in health care administration and more of my credits from community college transfered into that program than any other. One thing I disagree with others about is the time in which they give you to complete the work. I have been in 3 classes my last two terms while working 12hr shifts and doing billing and coding classes and still able to maintain A's in all 3 of my classes. My teachers are helpful, the material is taugh so I can understand, but they do need to upgrade the seminar system. Other then that I am due to graduate in June of 2019 and I am praying that I will be able to find a job. Hopefully my military credentials will assist me in doing so. It not a bad school but they could repair somethings."

"Buyer Beware! As a former student of Purdue Global (Kaplan), I have a lovely $150,000.00 useless piece of paper hanging on my wall, now for a BS in Health Science. Do not waste your time or your money. I have been struggling to secure gainful employment since graduating. My student loan payments are astronomical and am making less than $15.00 an hour with a Bachelors degree. One would be better off attending a technical college. The instructors were ignorant when it came to the course work. Ive worked in medicine for 15 years and the professors were not very knowledgeable on the Core Classes and would often BS their way through lecture. What a farce!"

"Although only in my 2nd term, all of the negative comments are puzzling to me. Granted, they are still using Kaplan curriculum, but it is still accredited. It will also take some time to complete rebranding. It is a distance learning environment and you will only get back what you put in. My VA benefits took a while to begin funding, but it was not the University's fault, it was a VA backlog. I have so far had a terrific experience with Professors, Advisors and Classmates. Not looking to quit anytime soon."

"I am a current student of Purdue I was recently affected by hurricane Florence where I lost everything, not even 2 weeks into the course I tried to drop it because physically and mentally it is nearly impossible for me to successfully complete the course due to the circumstances. Trying to be responsible I reached out to the school regarding my situation and I was inquiring about their policies in place for people who has been through a natural disaster, they said I would be responsible for full tuition although there was a natural disaster and they did not have anything in place. I personally no longer want to attend this school because clearly this school only cares about the money and not the well being of there students who is paying it."

"I was looking going back to school to finish up my degree, I ran across Purdue Global I am very happy to see that Purdue U ( not Global) was offering online degrees. Come to find out that this school was Kaplan ( Purdue Global). I went ahead and enroll in the school. My advisor told me that it was the same degree and the same classes being taught at Purdue U, but it not the same school. After doing some digging into the school all what Purdue U did was buy the education part of Kaplan. Purdue U told me they have nothing to do with how Purdue U is run and they don't handle any problems that going on at Purdue Global. Clearly I have a professor Ms. L. who is teaching Social Research Methods for Health Science which has no experience in the health care field, during her seminar all what you hear is a crying baby it would seem like she would attend to the baby but she keeps on talking and talking. So the degree will know as online degree just like Kaplan. DO YOUR RESEACH before you even think about going to this school it is still the same as Kaplan. I have contacted 6 schools and they all told they would not take any credits earned at Purdue Global because of the past of Kaplan and the lawsuits that Kaplan has lost. So don't be fool that you are attending Purdue U you attending whole different school with a different accreditation because I was told by the Mitch Daniels office the two schools has separate accreditation which the Prude U has different school code for aid and Purdue Global still has the same school as Kaplan, so I was that Kaplan will handle all the business part of Purdue Global and teaching methods as Kaplan U. Don't let Purdue Global fool you into thinking that you are earning a degree from Purdue U, if you earned a degree from Purdue Global your degree will be read as PURDUE UNIVERISTY GLOBAL NOT PURDUE UNIVERSITY THERE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THE DEGREES."

"Giving me the run around. 5 classes from getting my bachelors degree. My loans were all set to go up until July 2018. During this term I noticed my loans didnt go through and they told me I put the school code in wrong. I havent changed my school code and has worked all through 2018. I call them on week 5 of my classes that havent gotten paid for and they tell me I am maxed out on my loans and i am only able to get $57,000 max for loans. So you set me up for failure by not even having enough funding to receive my bachelor's degree. It cost more than $57,000 for the bachelor's degree. I wonder if everyone has to pay out of pocket to finish paying for school. Are they getting robbed too?"
