SNHU - 1/2/2017
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2019
"SNHU is absolutely Horrific in regards to student advising, communication and support. Over and over again I tried communicating with my instructors to no avail. My professor made several project and grading mistakes that directly effected both my grade and my attitude. It was readily evident many online instructors are revenue driven and have lost sight of the necessity of individual student support. This is what education in America has come down to, a system where instructors are paid piece meal, promoted and rewarded primarily on the amount of revenue they make for SNHU, and the direct impact they make on students in regard to interaction and quality support."

"So far I have experienced six classes with SNHU. I'm writing this review because of the reviews I have read where people complained about accessibility, when it comes to teachers, or when it comes to content. Accessibility is not an issue. Teachers always respond. And I have done schoolwork on a desktop, a laptop, a tablet, and a phone. The only content-restricting limitation I've ever experienced was with my phone. As far as accessibility is concerned, SNHU is fine. As far as the quality of education is concerned...I can't say. I'm too new to the experience. Once I have completed a year I will come back and add to this review."

"I enrolled at SNHU a few years ago because the demands of being a working adult make it virtually impossible to go the traditional route. I thought the online experience was wonderful and well laid out. However, if you do not have self-discipline and the drive to finish, you will be wasting your time and money. That could really go for any endeavor. Most of my instructors were very knowledgeable and fair. You must do the work, but they understand if "life" happens. For an undergraduate degree this is a great choice if the "brick-and-mortar" schools are not an option. For those who say this degree is worthless, I just got promoted and it was my degree (and hard work) that opened the door."

"SNHU's online program lets you make up and finish a degree you started elsewhere fast. I would not recommend it as a four year program. The courses are all pre-fab and the faculty are all part-timers who do this on the side. They hardly know whats going on themselves. Its very much a mill and most instructors will pass you for the basic level work. There are some good courses, but its really a money making engine that tries to look legit. I hate to criticize because SNHU did help my finish my degree - I had horrible grades at 3 different colleges and they "accepted" me - its really open admission. While I did have to apply myself and stick with it, the papers are easy, there are no tests etc. I got A's on papers that honestly were not good. But, like I said, I was able to get the "degree" which I needed for my job."

"I was a little skeptical about SNHU (and online education in general) when I first decided to go back and finish my bachelor's degree in late 2013. I have attended both a traditional brick and mortar state university as well as an exclusively online experience at SNHU, so I have a decent amount of experience in both settings. Overall, I have been fairly happy with my experience while attending SNHU when I compare it with my experience at a state university. First of all, you have to be comfortable as an independent learner to have any sort of success as an online student. I knew plenty of very intelligent students when I was at a tradition brick and mortar university who would have likely struggled as an online student due to the lack interaction with the instructor. If you are the type of student that has to be in your professors office hours every week, online education might not be a great fit for you. Fortunately for me, online education is perfect fit for me because I enjoy learning and discovering new things on my own. There is no "right" way to to learn. Find the way the best works for you and run with it. I had some very good instructors and some not so good instructors at SNHU, but I had a similar experience with my instructors at a state university. For the most part, I have been impressed with the level of instruction from the adjuncts at SNHU. As a business major, I think learning from professional who are still active in the field is a terrific way to build business acumen. As I mentioned, some instructors are good and some are bad, but that's pretty much the same experience you're going to have at any university outside of the the top tier. One of the areas where I had an issue with SNHU was the quality of some of the other students in class. Since SNHU will admit just about anyone willing to pay the tuition, you get a lot of students in class who do not belong in a college classroom (virtual or otherwise). It is very difficult working on group papers with people who cannot write at a college level. I noticed that this wasn't as much of an issue as I progressed farther into my degree program, but even ran into this problem over the last few weeks in my final term. Overall, I have definitely had a positive experience with SNHU. Whether you attend SNHU or Stanford, college education is what YOU decide to make of it."

"Excellent school. I have read some reviews speaking bad about SNHU and it poor online degrees, but if you look at all the major universities they are all going online. PSU has a masters that is online, Georgia Tech masters online, a ton of undergrad programs from top schools are online. The argument is flawed to say online is not a worthy degree otherwise it would have died out long ago. I highly recommend SNHU and other online programs from established accredited universities it is worth it."

"Before its nationwide mass marketing campaign two years ago SNHU offered an excellent online education to its students. It was top quality with great value. I know, I was a student at one time and so impressed I later became an adjunct instructor for the program over a period of several years. Now with its push for rapid expansion nationally it resembles more of a for profit diploma mill. It seems more is spent on advertising than on the quality of education they offer. This is a true loss for any would be or current student, not to mention those alumni who paid or are paying dearly on tuition loans to fund that degree at what is now rapidly becoming considered low grade and low quality. Direct experience has shown repeatedly that the administration which is growing by leaps and bounds is disorganized and has little concern for the quality of the curriculum that instructors are given to use, and instead are much more focused on developing methods to push students through the motions to up their enrollments and revenues."
