"I enjoyed my time at Purdue Global. The faculty were great and helpful. I enjoyed the career services that it will help me get to where I want to be. I also enjoyed all other services they provided to help me succeed, such as the writing center they have been very helpful!"

"The courses of study were diverse, and I found that the instructors were there to assist when I needed help or encouragement. But you have to ask. We all need help occasionally. No one can take the education away from you once you earn it! So, Go for it and dream your dreams, and take this off of your bucket list! MBA Graduate August 2021"

"This place is a joke! I based my choosing of Purdue off the name instead of actually doing any research. I started this process in May of 2018 and chose to do the Exceltrack. I knew there were many things going on over the course of the next several months so after submitting my application, getting my financial aid squared away and deciding which plan would work best for me, I wanted to being the term that started in October. After emailing with who I thought was an enrollment specialist, they told me I had to do this phone orientation type thing so I set that up. Keep in mind, I work full time, have a child, family, etc. the only time it was offered was basically during my working hours so I scheduled to do it at lunch. Sat around and waited and waited and waited....NOTHING. So I call and I am basically laughed at because I am not scheduled to start my classes till October so I would have to wait a few weeks before then. So I email the person I was originally dealing with and he says he will handle it. Needless to say it was Sept before I did the phone thing. So here goes October and classes begin. Off to a decent start but through the course of many classes, the syllabus will require a text book but then you have to get into other online programs or download other text that are not mentioned in the syllabus at all. Some of the text they show required are of absolutely no help to the coursework. You cannot access the next module until your grade officially posts which is overnight. So if you submit on Sunday, they have 24 hours during the week to get graded, so professor posts the grade on Monday then it is Tuesday before you can do anymore work. Their attendance policy is 14 days, which is not a problem but it is based on as a whole, not each term. So if term begins 3/18/20, your attendance as far as posts don't start from term beginning it is overall. I got dropped from my program because I submitted work on 3/1/20, was graded and posted after midnight 3/2/20. On 3/3/20 I was able to access my next module but the professor I had for that term was a pretty hard one so I knew there was no way I could complete the required coursework, have it graded and posted prior to the term end. I did not want to risk an incomplete or a fail so I did not access the module. The term ended on 3/10 with the new one starting on 3/18/20. Now this is also during the time the world is in a state of chaos with the COVID-19 pandemic and I am considered an essential employee at my job therefore I am still working in the office. I have a child who is now out of school. New term starts on 3/18 (Wed), I log in on Sun 3/22 and complete my first modules readiness check, get a grade and move on. On Monday 3/23 I log in and have no classes to access. I emailed my advisor and then Tuesday morning 3/24 I get an email saying I had been dropped for non-attendance. I called the school and spoke to 4 different people and they are like welllllllll we can submit a claim. Ok, submit the claim. After I hang up the phone I get an email from an adviser in re-enrollment giving me step by step instructions on how to reapply to the school. I email her and say, I thought they were creating a claim. She then says oh ok we will wait to hear back. The next day the same lady emails me with the same info, then calls me to say I got all your financial aid together so we just need you to go online and complete the application. I again ask her about the claim and she said claim? what do you mean claim? So I AGAIN explain to her. She said oh ok we will wait. I get a call Thursday afternoon from the pitiful excuse of an adviser I had who is another story all together but she was my I think 3rd one in a year and half, if that, saying it was 1223a when I had logged in and completed the readiness check so it put me past the 14 days. If I had not logged in through the app I would have been able to prove by internet history that was not the case but I did it through the app. I was not awake at that time because it was a Sunday night and I had to work on Monday. I would HIGHLY encourage anyone to look elsewhere before deciding to enroll at this school."

"I have really enjoyed the freedom and flexibility that this degree program has offered me. The readily available student support system and access to student organizations and clubs have been a great way to meet faculty and other students. It's enabled me to work full time in my remote job, which I travel with a lot. While it is quite expensive, it's something that I expected about grad school."

"I will keep this short, I have a Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology as well as a Master's Degree in Business Development and must say the first year or so of my MBA was the most challenging academic work and the most vivid and exciting experience that I have ever had. I am in my early 60s and have two children in their 20s. When my kids were born I dreamed of getting an MBA but know that with my workload, and responsibilities the idea of coming home and then spending and extra 4-6 hour in lecture, even it the program was hosted only 15 minutes from where I lived was beyond human edurance and my already stretched finances with a young family. Purdue University Global has been a blessing, it has filled the gaps in my previous Master's Degree and let me study when and where I can when I can, the faculty are and have been magneficient and at least for me the financial aid and student counselors despite I must say seemigly major attitude problems with some of the (old) finance and accounting tutors (who should perhaps just retire) have been excellent and very professional. All that I have to say, and I currently hold a 3.8 GPA which is the highest that I have ever achieved is that Purdue University Global is the sort of school that you get out of it exactly what you put into it. If you think that you can submit cr-p and slide by on the work of other team members it willl more than likely catch up to you. As you can imagine, I have a long and varied educational career and all I can tell you is that for a working adult, or a person whom for whatever reason cannot spent day-after-day in a brick and mortar school where the only doubtful benefit is the odd chance to network yourself into an entry level job after completion after spending +$100 grand on what? This school has been a God send to me, and one of the very best decisions that I have made in my 61 years of life. If you think that doing and online education is somehow a way to slip under the radar and do cr-ppy work yet succeed you are mistaken and all I have to say to you is don't be bitter and simply blame yourself and WORK harder because you can change things. By the way the financial does suck, there are no scholarships, a Foundation to help needy student and the cr-p company that they have contracted to help students in need are some of the worse and least carrying and effective incompetent lazy bums that I have ever encountered in my academic career and are a cancure that should be remove from a school trying to reach a whole new level. My dealing with these "people" (I am unemployed at the moment) was the worese that I ever experienced and the Career Placement Office is not much better and the resume help that they give is next to worthless if you can even depend on them to do a decent resume review for the students. It seems at least in the above elemets that I mention that the school has shamelessly perfomed only tokenism (ya' me too) to the real current and post graduation needs of its students and that is perhaps why one can sense sunch a tone of despire and disappontment in some of these post because Purdue University Global has awsome potential but unfortuanantly in many respects still at least on many adminstrative level is still "playing games" that are cheap sorted and short sighted with it current students. My local community college offers 10x's more real ($$$) suport for it students, and that is perhaps why Purdue Univerisity Global (and surprisingly Purdue University proper) are extremely lacking when it comes to supporting financially challenged but ambitous, intelligent, and hard working student. One must ask oneself, where do their values lie?"

"The financial aid departments gives the run around about funding for classes!!! Supposedly my financial packet had to be done over three times with multiple requests. No one is on the same page and it seems like a waste of money for the university. I will be complaining if possible."
