"Purdue University Global is one of the best schools, which I have attended for my studies. Most of the instructors were very helpful and very knowledgeable. I will definitely recommend Purdue to my other friends. Academic counselors were also very helpful. Overall I had a great help from all the instructors in completing my course very successfully."

"Great school from my perspective, however, I haven't attended another online strictly school. The professors were all very helpful and available at all times. I graduated in a few weeks and am currently working. I enrolled in this masters program in hopes to further my career, I have confidence that it will."

"Overall, I had a wonderful experience with Purdue Global. I will be graduating soon with my Masters of Science in Nursing with my FNP on June 29th, 2021. My instructors cared about the class and wanted to see them pass. My program was designed for nurses to work and to go to school. They often extended deadlines for us to complete because of the pandemic and work schedules. They worked with us and helped us all complete our degree. Very satisfied with Purdue Global. I would recommend to anyone."

"Purdue University Global has been an amazing experienced. All professors are understanding when it comes to the hectic military life. When I first enrolled that was my biggest fear that I would fall behind due to the last minute "to dos" within my job in the military. If a question was ever asked either to the professors or to different departments, they were always quick to respond. Professors always gave their students their personal cell phone numbers making it easier to reach them when unexpected things occurred."

"From enrollment to my final term, PUG has been so helpful every step of the way. My advisors were so informative, my professors were always accessible, and the course work was challenging and enlightening. As a 40 year-old returning student, I was nervous. As I receive my Bachelors this June, my advisor played a pivotal role in my decision to pursue my Masters. I looked no further than Purdue University Global to continue my education!"

"I received my BSN from Purdue University Global and am now a handful of weeks from graduating with my Masters in Nursing Education. Purdue and the professors have been outstanding and have been a huge support system. Best school ever!! I completed my BSN in 10 months and when I graduate with my MSN I will have done it in 1 year. The excel track program allowed me to work at my own pace and that pace was quick, as I found out I was pregnant with my 4th child and was able to finish my degree before he was born. I was able to achieve that goal thanks to the ease of Purdue’s excel track program."

"Purdue Global has been an effective experience in earning my Bachelor's degree in Health Science. The work load was manageable without being too much to accomplish while working full time. The professors overall were amazing and helped a lot whenever there were questions I needed answered outside of school. There was one professor that I didn't particularly care for. He was nice, but there were some things with grading that he didn't do well. For example, he graded my discussion post for a particular unit, then a few weeks later re-graded that same discussion post and gave me a lower grade than he did originally. Other than that I have had no issues with any other professors or classes and would recommend online classes at Purdue Global to anyone working full time wanting to further their education."

"Purdue offered me a tremendous program that allowed someone like myself who works full time the option to successfully achieve a degree I have been pushing off. The Excel track was fantastic and every conversation I had with Purdue and their staff was top-notch. I intend to pursue my Masters's Degree through them."

"Overall a good experience considering I am a full-time professional and father of two. I do not like that the graduation requirement is 180 credits and then you take your capstone course. Just say it takes 186 credits. Additionally, the capstone course should NOT be a team course. It has been very difficult to accept that I may not graduate with the GPA I would have earned on my own. Going through my program, working hard to be at a 3.97 and then have to rely on others to maintain that grade level is unfair. Some people are fine with lower grades, especially a the end of the program. They have checked out and I am stuck carrying the 'team' so I achieve what I set out to do. Otherwise, a great experience. Cheers!"

"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 completed the RN to BSN degree. PROS: The classes were self-paced, so I was able to take as few as 10 credits and as many as 22 credits in the 10-week Excel Track terms. I liked that I could be working on several classes at the same time. The classes were not difficult, just time-consuming. I would say that 90% of the BSN assignments were papers and PowerPoints, mostly covering nursing theory. It became quite redundant by the final term, but wasn't difficult. Everything is self-taught. I didn't have any pre-recorded lectures. You take the pre-test (which I felt was a waste of time), read anywhere from 1-10 readings/chapters, and complete the assignment. CONS: Since everything is self taught, if you have any questions, you have to email your teacher and wait for a response. Sometimes these responses would take 3 days (over the weekends) which meant that I was unable to continue working on assignment until I got a return email. This was understandable, but kind of frustrating. In my final term, I had one teacher who was absolutely horrible at returning assignments in the required timeframe (24 hours on weekdays and 72 hours on weekends). I reached out to advisors on multiple occasions about this specific teacher. One advisor wrote an email to the teacher and cc'd me on it (I had already done this), and one advisor told me to just wait longer. You can't start on the next module until the teacher grades your previous submission, so I spent several days waiting on this teacher when I should have been working on the next assignment. Advisors should be able to open the next module when the teacher isn't grading in the required timeframe and isn't responding to emails."

I am a father of 2 daughters that works a full time job, often times over 50 hours a week and they make it so easy and convient to get your degree online.

"This PG online RN-BSN programs worked very well for my busy schedule. It was flexible and I was able to complete it at my own pace. I started on the traditional track and from a casual suggestion from one of the instructors I switched to the Exceltrak and I gained so much momentum in completing my courses, I think I averaged one course (credit) per week, maybe even, if rarely I was able to complete two. Most of the assignments offered flexibility so that the content I explored was related to what my interests actually were. Other assignments gave more specific directed instruction ie: evaluate avail resources for a specific patient population, and the patient population is given to you. They also really make sure you learn how to write a paper, I thought I knew, but there was so much more to the spacing, headers, running headers that I didn’t really know or wasn’t taught in my previous ADN program. This may not be an issue for most students, but I got lots of feedback on the format of my papers. By the end I pretty much had it down, which gave a nice boost to my overall experience. I think this is also probably up to the professor’s preference. The leadership courses were particularly beneficial to my nursing practice and I learned a lot about how to lead professionally (something that I lacked the confidence to do before). Since I chose the Exceltrak I was better able to financially plan and make payments on time. It also pushed me to get as much done as quickly as possible. I finished my courses in Dec 2020, and got my degree by mail and honored with Suma Cum Laude (interested to know the percentage of graduates who get this honor since I felt like it was all pass or fail). It was a pleasing school/learning experience and much more doable than I expected. I am strongly considering to continue for my MSN."

"DON'T GO HERE. They will lie to you and tell you that you can try classes for free for a week. Then when you call in to drop the class, they'll fail to do their job and charge you thousands of dollars for their negligence. Absolutely horrible school and horrible experience. Strongly urge you to check the Better Business Bureau report about this company before getting involved with them. There's numerous reports of these guys failing to do their job and sticking individuals with thousands of dollars in bills because of their own personal mistakes. I suggest using any other college"

"I love Purdue Global because I was able to complete a 4 year degree in a little more than 2 years. I did so by submitting a portfolio that showed my years of experience and allowed me receive credit for those courses versus taking a class I was already knowledgeable in. My academic advisor was very helpful and the main reason I chose Purdue over other online schools."

"*I am a US Navy Veteran and there is no choice provided for veterans, other than active or retired. My experience has been a great one. The faculty are all very well-versed in their respective areas of study and the level of experience is evident when they begin explaining experiential topics. The online environment is amazing, as I am a working adult with life experiences. Sitting in a class with 18-20 somethings who are too concerned with social justice than the studies they are there for would have me dropping and never obtaining my degree. The course load was very manageable, while remaining challenging throughout. I have recommended Purdue University Global for everyone who asks me about my studies. My only issue with the psychology program at PGU is that they do not have a Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. I believe they would attract far more students if that program were added. That they have Applied Behavior Analysis and Addictions however, is a very positive aspect."
