Southern New Hampshire University Online Reviews - Bachelor's in Business AdministrationSee reviews of all programs at Southern New Hampshire University Online
This university does not help students get professional jobs . They have done one job fair in 2016 , but it was not so effective because most of the companies who were hiring are not career jobs . SNHU does not have enough resources to help student get a job after they graduate . They will only have a career advisor who will help build up your resume and give you some ideas on how to do well in interviews , but its still not enough . Most of the local colleges in my town will help students find a job once they graduate by having at least 6 job fairs every semester and also the university networked with bigger and better companies to help students find a job compare to SNHU . Whenever I apply for a job and they see SNHU on my resume they think its a complete joke . Now I'm stuck paying student loan from a university where I receive a little to none growth within my career and also education .If I were you , go to a local / public university because they have many resources to help elevate students once you finish school compare to a private university . It may take longer to finish at an local university , but it will be worth waiting for . Please , avoid making the same mistake I made by not continuing your education at this university . This is a profit school who only cares about making money and care less about helping students succeed .
I can only speak about my experiences and general assumptions through my time at SNHU. From the moment you request information from them, they'll call you a lot. The admissions advisor was able to answer my questions and provide all the required documents I needed to enroll. I'm using my GI Bill to pay for my classes, so I didn't have to deal with financial aid. The GI Bill portion was quick and painless. I have found the classes to be quite easy. I did well for two years at a community college before attending SNHU, but I definitely had to work harder. The classes follow rubrics that I found to be easily understandable. If your projects are completed by following the rubrics, then you will receive high grades. If you complete all the assignments, even with some poor grades, then you will pass the classes. Something I wanted to note is that the online instructors aren't there to teach the material. They guide the classes through the rubrics and grade assignments based off the rubrics. If you require someone to actually teach you the material, you will probably not be successful at SNHU online. I also found the late policy to be extremely forgiving for students. Through my personal experience, I've found that they want their students to succeed and will help in any way they can. My only problem with SNHU is how their degrees are perceived by employers.
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.
