Southern New Hampshire University Online Reviews - Bachelor's in Business AdministrationSee reviews of all programs at Southern New Hampshire University Online
SNHU Online is the best school that I have attended. It is perfect for those who have worked in a particular industry and need to finish studies. It is a non-profit institution. I had a great experience learning. It is not an "easy" school. It is perfect for the self-motivated learner. If not self-motivated you may not enjoy it. I am currently in my last three months of school. I literally have only good things to report. I have a lifetime of work experience, now I will have a two degrees to go with it. A.S. Business Administration and B.S. Business Administration. I currently work as an independent small business consultant and trainer. I received just what I was looking for. I found the school to be exceptionally organized and the staff was exceptionally receptive. SNHU is GREAT!
DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL IF YOU HAVE ANY SORT OF DOCUMENTED DISABILITY, OR MEDICAL ISSUES. EVEN WITH PROPER DOCUMENTATION, THE SCHOOL WILL NOT FOLLOW LAWS. NOT GREAT WITH THEIR STUDENTS SUCCESS. ADVISORS:HAVE IQ OF ROCK & ONLY CARE ABOUT A PAYCHECK
Southern New Hampshire was a great school for those who want to seek an education after seeking a career first. For those seeking skills to go into business immediately afterwards, seek a school close to where you would want to live. Networking and placement was a challenge.
I started SNHU right out of high school, and it ended up being the perfect fit for me. The courses are not easy, and you have to work hard to get a good grade. I was surprised to see some of the bad reviews on here, but I guess online courses do not work for everybody. I know people who have graduated from SNHU and have gotten great jobs afterward. This was the reasons I chose SNHU over other colleges with online programs. This school has physical campuses, well accredited, and is respected by employers. I am only half way done with my degree program, and it is getting much more intense. The professors and advisors are very helpful when you need to ask questions. I would recommend this school for someone who wants to further themselves in their career.
My experience at SNHU online was favorable. The online coursework ranged from moderate too easy. That being said, SNHU's online undergraduate programs work best for working professionals with established resumes in need of a degree. People without an established career may be better served attending at traditional 4 year college. Training in How to learn Online before enrolling is a must for those unfamiliar with e-learning class rooms. Uploading assignments or taking tests in a timely fashion can be cumbersome for the inexperienced. Over all, if you need an undergraduate degree or masters for the next level or open up new opportunities within your field, SNHU's programs work.
The course instructions in ALL of the courses in 9 terms I've taken is horrible. There are errors and missing information that continually require clarification. The online program only has facilitators - not instructors and certainly not teachers - only people who regurgitate what is handed to them. Some of them have clearly not even read the course content. In inquiry after inquiry about gaps, omissions, and jumble instructions, responses are met with comments along the lines of - I didn't put it together - there's nothing I can do - do the best you can - and other ridiculous answers. This experience should have been a pleasant and easy one (for me), but it was made quite uncomfortable and MUCH more difficult than it should have been due to the extra work required of me.
SNHU is an amazing school and their online program was great. It provided an excellent work life balance. The instructors and student advisors were all very nice. I never once had anyone act rude or annoyed when I needed help with something. Great interactions with the students and online site in general. I don't get some of the negative reviews on here but you know what they say, you can't please everyone. For anyone who is seeking an online program while working a full time job I would look into SHNU!
If you are really unsure of what school to attend, if you are going through review after review and asking many people what should you do, then you are where I was before I choose SNHU. I do not regret choosing this school. Every instructor is willing to help you plus you have an adviser, an online discussion board for questions and tutoring that's available to you. It's no walk in the park but it's not anything that's ridiculous either. I would say the one thing they could improve on is maybe having more tutorials. I highly recommend this school to anyone at any point in their life. I was really unsure too. I know how it feels and that's why I'm taking time to hopefully help someone make a good choice because I know you probably don't want to waste your time. That's how I felt, too. So let me keep it real with you, Choose SNHU. You will not regret it. I don't even usually bother commenting on these types of things but I feel like I should say something because I've been there.
