Kate - 4/11/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019
"Purdue University Global was previously Kaplan University. My experience was much more positive prior to the transition. My Kaplan professors were of an entirely different caliber in comparison to my Purdue professors. The last two terms of my degree were disorganized, chaotic, and in the hands of individuals who lacked insight, the ability to provide any type of valuable constructive feedback, and unable to complete a directive without grammatical and spelling errors. It was a very unprofessional experience and I am thankful to be done. I would not recommend a graduate nursing degree from Purdue Global University if you are looking to receive an education."

Incompetent and Not Accomodating - 4/8/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019
"Horrible experience. The academic advisors are not helpful, AT ALL! The only good part was the assistance during the application. Youll learn just as much if you read a textbook. I liked my instructor but the course was not at all worth the money. Too expensive. Advisors arent helpful."

Kim - 3/30/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2021
"PG started out ok. Then found out that my state did not recognize the association that PG was with. Tried to withdraw but was told to finish the term due to financial aid so I did. Well I finished the term and got a final grade the day before the next term was suppose to start. Found out that they withdrew me after finishing the term but I still could not get my financial aid that I was awarded. So now I am $2000 in debt to a school that lied to me. I talked to one man about my financial aid and said everything was on track and then I called and spoke with a different man and he said that I withdrew which I did not. Very disappointing but on a good note the professor I had was really caring and emailed me when she had concerns. The seminars were nice and that they gave you another option if you could attend that seminar. Would not recommend this so called university."

"I have been a full time student, working adult and mom for three years at this institution. I had 15 years of healthcare leadership experience, knew I wanted to do more but needed a degree. Kaplan, later Purdue Global, has met my needs and then some. I will say that my overall experience has been incredibly positive. The negative reviews here honestly shock me. As an adult learner through an online platform, you have to be accountable. This is not a place to just slide by. Pros - The finance process was seamless. I did my FAFSA online and set up a monthly payment plan for the remainder. The finance office returned any call, answered every question and was very accommodating with my out of pocket expenses. My Adviser was AMAZING. I cannot say enough about her. She checked on me every week, provided constant encouragement and ensured I understood the classes I was taking, the sequencing and what I would be taking each semester to meet my timeline. The course work was challenging enough that I learned, what I thought, was a great deal. The pace of the 10 week classes felt just right. I took the portfolio course for work experience credits and it was worth the effort. The professors were knowledgeable and helpful. I learned concepts that I began applying immediately. I still refer back to some of the teachings, principals and concepts. Cons - I really missed not having actual textbooks. They are all online. Some professors navigate the seminar technology better than others. It seems to be significantly better since it became Purdue. I plan on working towards my MBA with Purdue. This was a very good experience and stands out well on my resume."

Jami - 3/24/2019
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2019
"If you decide to go to this school, make sure to record every conversation you have with staff. They will lie to you repeatedly and s**** you over. I was told multiple times that something wasn't an issue only to have them tell me otherwise at the end of my schooling in an attempt to get more money. Because I didn't record any messages, they are punishing me. They do not care about students, only money and will s**** students over in an attempt to get more. I sincerely hope my credits at this pathetic excuse for a school will transfer so I can further my education elsewhere."

"Anyone who plans to go to this school better make sure to read and become an expert in the scoops policies. Do not let yourself believe it get confused by what the faculty says. They will tell you lied and you will be the one paying for it. When you get s****** over for their lies, they blame you for it and act like you should have known while also apologizing for their staff not knowing. They just want your money and will s**** you over to get as much of it as they can. Kaplan better than this shaft school."

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2020
"Poor planning and communication. We were paying cash months for classes, and dropped from my next courseload due to not filling out financial aid documents. My account had a $0 balance, and still dropped from classes. They still wanted us to sign up for financial aid. It seems they are in business to get student loan debt via financial aid and hope to make extra income on late fees and interest, and not interested in catering to students who pay bills upon receipt in full."

Anthony - 3/19/2019
Degree: Fire Science
Graduation Year: 2019
"I have to say I was impressed with the level of engagement for the program. I transferred from a state program in the same field and feel I learned more at Purdue. It is a online program. It does seem to be a bit mor costlier, but when compared to other schools around the nation it seems to be in the ball park as far the cost per course. I have read some of the negative comments and never experienced any that was previous listed. I actually found the staff be more helpful and friendlier that the University I previously attended at home in Louisiana. I would recommend giving the Purdue Global a chance before jjudging!"

"This school's financial aid office is a joke. After I graduated, they would not fill out a loan deferment for me for my undergraduate loans and basically told me I was on my own. I would call to inquire and was put on hold MULTIPLE times and they could never help me. They also disbursed DOUBLE the amount of loans for me in my last term as a student there and made me fill out multiple forms to get refunded, and were never able to refund me. Be prepared to be disappointed with their financial aid office."

"I wrote a review last time but the WORST MISTAKE ever! If you come from a low-income household like I do this in not where you want to go. I'm literally broke, they ask for a lot of money every few months and what I have to pay for just a few months to get a cerfiticate is almost as much as what my sibling went through at actual colleges. My sibling has 5 years of college which includes a bachlor's degree. I am only getting a certificate and paying almost the same amount."
