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."

"I didn't have the admissions issues some others mentioned. I used my post 9/11 and the military outreach person made sure it went smoothly. Now for the classes... Well they didn't make a hell of a lot of sense to me. The seminars were pretty good and the professor seemed to know his business, but then the assignment had almost nothing to do with the assigned reading or the seminars. This school also makes you do a ton of those useless discussion boards, they added zero value to the course and are just a way to make sure you get some points. If you are fairly competent and can write at least as well as this review you should be more than capable of earning your masters from here. I probably would not recommend this school to others, based mostly on the excessive amount of discussion boards and the seemingly disconnected relationship between the assignments and what was taught."

Jennifer Nielsen - 3/8/2019
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019
"EXCELTRAK IS THE WORST PROGRAM EVER - DO NOT TAKE. The advisors are THE WORST and they are completely incompetent, unreasonable and each one says something different. I am LEAVING THE UNIVERSITY after only 2 terms. The teachers are worthless, registrar took 6 weeks to process my transcripts, and the only saving grace is that the courses are SO EASY to pass with a business background."

Breona Mayer - 2/28/2019
Degree: Legal Studies
Graduation Year: 2019
"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."

"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."

"The school was pretty decent. The only thing I have to complain about is the cost of college, its way to expensive for online college. I still have 7k to pay off. With that said, BS in health science is not a good degree to go for, I have not yet found a job."

"I attended Kaplan University before Purdue University bought them out. With that said, I cannot tell you how Purdue actually works. However, I will say that Purdue has done nothing to change our experience. Each class is a dog and pony show. I almost have my associate's degree and I HAVE LEARNED NOTHING. You get very basic, egg washed concepts with software classes. Basic operations, increment/decrement, etc. Listen... For profit colleges are HORRIBLE! The more you pass, the more money they make. They bank on you strictly passing, not learning. Let that sink in. Please, do NOT waste your time at this college. You will go into debt and feel robbed of so much time and dedication. I wish I could go back. I gave this EVERYTHING I had & did my best. For nothing. This is a real review. Don't fall for these 5-star reviews. I promise you... You want to pick another college. You deserve better."

A Joke - 2/7/2019
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2019
"I would not recommend this school. Like others have stated, there is no organization and the staff is SUPER rude. The administration and the instructors talk sarcastically and unprofessional. If you have an issue with a "professor" you are unable to get a new one because they only offer the same teacher for that class. The rules constantly change, one professor might be okay with a certain way you do something and give you 100% and then another teacher will say that is against the "rules" and give you a zero. In a masters program a zero can basically fail you since the grade point average you need is high. I really advise people to join another school, ANY other school would have to be more put together and respectful than this one."
