"I am currently a student at SNHU. This is only my 2nd term with them and I have had the best support from both my advisor and my instructors. I feel bad for whoever has had a horrible experience here, but I receive call backs same day from my advisor and my instructors have even provided me with their cell phone numbers for quicker response times. Yes, there is alot of reading and assignments but what else would you expect from an online school? Again this is only my 2nd term but I love it."

"I had mixed feelings starting a program online to turn my associates into a Bachelor's degree, I saw negative reviews and was very nervous starting at this school and doing is online. The courses are challenging and of course some professors are hard to grasp, but it is beneficial to reach out to classmates, advisors and other resources to complete work. reading everything about the class, webinars are very helpful and 90% of my experience with teachers (even the small few I did not enjoy) all communicated back and all had attentive dialogue. Some people are not cut out for online learning and need the in-classroom scene, i discovered I could complete work after everyone was in bed and being able to do the work on my own time since I work full time. Anyone in their later years should talk to an advisor if they are thinking of coming back to school, I'm glad I waited until I was 30 to decide my degree path instead of jumping into a different degree I would have no use for. Financial aide was a little bit of a headache so I recommend you understand all paperwork that needs completed so your funding isn't changed mid way. Financial services are helpful. The learning communities are also helpful , I did accounting and the accounting community gave great help with tutoring."

"SNHU Online is a great program for people like me that have already started their career and want to finish their degree but it's difficult to take classes in campus due to all of life's demands such as work, family and church. I would definitely recommend the program, one day after I finished I had already found a position within my filed of study."

"So I've seen quite a few mixed reviews regarding SNHU and thought I would post some personal insight based on my own experiences. I currently work as an accountant for one of the top five companies in San Diego and completed my first bachelor's degree from a top tier university in the midwest. While I did not go to school for accounting, through a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck I was promoted into the financial field. Since I didn't go to school for accounting and am preparing to sit for the C.P.A exam it goes without saying that I do not meet the requirements despite having in-field experience. With a full time job, a son, and a family, returning to a traditional brick and mortar school for night class wasn't one that particularly fit my schedule-so I decided to enroll in SNHU online (yes, SNHU's accounting credits are accepted by the California Board of Accountancy). If you're attempting to try and hold SNHU to the same caliber as schools such as UCLA, IU, or many other top state schools, it goes without saying that SNHU isn't in the league of best of the best-but that doesn't mean it's a BAD school. While the classes aren't as difficult as those of my first bachelor's, there is still a great degree of learning potential if you WANT to learn. As with any employer, having a degree with an A average doesn't necessarily ensure job security. In regards to many of the complaints I have seen regarding the University, I have to disagree with a few. Highlighted below: Administrative: Have had little to no issue with scheduling classes and communicating with advisors. I spent some time before orientation figuring out how to navigate blackboard and found little to no issues. Of course, it does take some time and effort to figure out (although not much), but if you didn't wait until the night before class to start you shouldn't have a problem. As far as teacher response time? No teacher I have ever had responds right away. But, if you plan ahead of time, you usually get a response. I can't speak for anyone else, but there isn't a lot of hand-holding involved. The class procedures and technologies are relatively straightforward...so I'm slightly confused as to why there is so much disdain regarding the subject. Quality of education: Don't expect the same type of curriculum as a traditional four year college. You are in charge of teaching yourself and are responsible for your own time management. Yes, you'll do fine if you skim the material and put some effort into the assignments, but it won't help your career. If you don't actually learn and retain the information pertinent to your career, your degree is somewhat worthless rather than for nailing that first interview. Do well, intern, volunteer, set yourself apart from your peers and you'll be fine. There are many employers who screen for a bachelor's degree before even viewing a resume...if anything the degree will get you past step one. When it comes down to it-use your head. If you feel you are being taken advantage of, figure out why. Make sure your degree will allow you to perform in your desired career. Make sure you will receive the kind of education you need before continuation. Double check if the school is right for you. For some, SNHU may not be the best choice. For others, it may be great. At the end of the day, YOU are responsible for making your own decisions. Figure out if SNHU will give you what you need and allow you to go where you need to go. I need to meet the requirements to sit for the C.P.A exam. SNHU satisfies that requirement. Do your research before making decisions that may cost thousands of dollars (particularly if you are considering graduate school!). Best of luck to all. Oh, and try to only take out subsidized loans if you can. You aren't charged interest accrual until you graduate;)"

"The professors are terrible. I failed an assignment without a reason. it shows on rubric "visit writing center for help, assignment was not professional, not APA style". I reached out to both 'advisor" and professor. No response or help. at least with other colleges they would show you what you did wrong/ how to improve. This college they don't bother. All the assignment are linked with each other, double graded. What I mean is week 3 homework you will turn in, polish and turn in again on week 8. DO NOT ATTEND by the way the only reason financial services gets a 5 star is because they make sure they get paid :)"

"Last week I received a phone call from my academic advisor that I have an outstanding balance of $520 on my account which will need to be pay within a week in order to remain activate in the program. I was never informed of this issue until I have completed my first term. Every week I have reviewed my financial aid website and nothing was mention that there was a balance. Nor did I receive any statements. I have tried several times to speak with a manager in both Academic and Financial Aid but no luck. I even asked for a financial aid letter that displays number of credit hours, tuition cost, title iv awarded and cash balance. Again no information from financial aid. I am very disappointed of how I have been treated and misinformed of my financial obligation. At this time I will submit a formal complaint to the Department of Higher Education as well to New Hampshire Department of Education."

"The online program has lots of confusion. It is so hard to follow the instructions. I am so struggling for weekly assignment. You cannot find help from the department. Professor Mona did not very help for online students. She is unprofessional. Think before you take this professor."

"SNHU is a University have big issues on their administration it really doesn't matter what department for the time I have been in this school there has been a huge strugle to get anything done the advising center is nothing but garbage they will loose your forms there is a probability that the forms have to be submitted at least 20 times before they will do anything if you need to speak to somebody good luck you probable will have a better chance resurrecting the death"

"SNHU is an excellent program to be able to do at home, online. It is some of the best classes I have taken, alongside with some of the most difficult. The instruction and interaction is much better than some of the online programs I have done."
