"My advisor has been wonderful, and I genuinely believe that the advising department wants to see you succeed and do well. I also had a couple of really great teachers. The problem lies greatly in the healthcare administration program itself if I am being honest. I am nearing the completion of this program, and I do not feel that I have been adequately prepared for everything taking on the role of a healthcare administrator entails. I felt that some of the coursework required to graduate was unnecessary, sometimes repetitive, or lacked direct correlation to the healthcare aspects of the job. It is a gamble too that you may be assigned to a not so great professor for certain subjects. Should you consider dropping the class, the financial aid office will not give a straightforward answer about whether you will owe back financial aid or how much you will be responsible for based on what your enrollment status would then be. The last teacher I had was not engaging and was condescending. I was given a very poor grade despite demonstrating clear understanding of the material and providing exemplary work. Given all the time I have dedicated and student loans that I have invested in this degree, I should not feel uneasy about not being properly prepared as I near graduation or unhappy with the quality of the education I enrolled for. I am sure that SNHU has programs that are great and prepare students to excel in their intended careers, but this one did not meet my expectations."

"Am I glad I read the reviews before I didn't have a chance to withdraw for the first week which was this week. Now reading, I do realize that they have a pretty telemarketing feel to them. I was taking the HIS 100 class and I was purely confused. They do not offer due dates like other schools do which has left me very confused. My "advisor" was more adamant about me staying there and trying to complete my financial aid than allowing me to leave. They do not allow you to withdraw from courses yourself despite them saying that the first week is the drop week. You legitimately have to contact financial services or your advisor just to withdraw from the class. I think this is so that they can get you with their sales pitch to stay. Thank you to all the reviewers for saving me time and over thousands of dollars!"

"The financial services department is terrible they gave out the 1098 forms on 1-31-2020. Then, sent a mass email out to students advising them that they had a reporting system error and need to make adjustments on the forms. And, if you filed your taxes with the 1098t form they gave out on 1-31-2020, you would have to get your taxes amended with your tax processor. They will send updated 1098T forms 2-7-2020. Horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now, I have to wait until 2-7-2020 to see what adjustments they made on the forms to see if I have to return get my state and federal tax refund. I also processed my fasa form in 12-2019 and they have placed all current students on hold until 3-2020 to get an answer about there financial assisted. This is horrible !!! The financial aid department is so behind,backed, and making major mistakes up it is a really be turn off. Besides, the terrible financial aid department that school is decent."

"I think SNHU is good for people who are self motivated and able to self teach. I am a senior and I graduate may 2020. My Bs In Healthcare Administration. I would have to say the hardest classes you will take online would be the math classes. Overall you really have to teach yourself how to solve the problems you will face. I will have to agree with the person who said once you reach 300-400 classes you are on your own. By this point you should have the feel for the university and how the classes flow. I feel like I have learned more here than I have learned in a traditional class. Why and How? Research. If you want to learn online it takes a lot research and reading. Every term you write tons of papers. These papers reflect the knowledge you grasp throughout the term. I think it is better than taking a traditional multiple choice question because you have to elaborate on what you think you know..... The teachers vary, some teachers are very interactive. In my level 400 class my finance teacher likes to have conference calls with the students. Some teachers interact more via discussion or email. It all depends on the teacher and your needs. They do not spoon feed you. If you need someone to hold your hand through each class. This is not the place for you to be. Also, if you have trouble with your teacher in any way, the counselors are there to assist you as much as possible. The school is online and pretty much self paced. Assignments are due by Sunday. Ive never seen a teacher say that they do not accept a late assignment especially due to emergency reasons. I had an issue while living in South Carolina due to the hurricane and I had to leave town. My teachers all gave me extra time to catch up with all my work. On top of that my counselor reached out to me to let me know that they would be contacting my teachers about the hurricane. Everyone will have a different experience but I def say go to SNHU if you are self motivated, you want quicker paced classes, and you dont mind reading a lot of material. I plan on returning to the school to work towards my masters program."

"Since I am a student at SNHU, I feel I could write an accurate review of my experiences. Eight out of ten times the instructor doesn't care for the student, doesn't properly engage, make time when time is needed, or follow SNHU's guidelines. Multiple times I have had to go to a Dean for assistance because I either got no response from instructors, my instructor didn't know who to solve a problem assigned in an assignment, graded late or at the very last minute, etc. As a student, we are to focus on our studies, as a student at SNHU one has to focus on their studies and how to figure out communication with an instructor. SNHU didn't hesitate to take my tuition every term and made excuses for everything else along the way. This is why I moved on to a different school for my graduate program!"

"I started at SNHU May 2017 and have been working hard ever since. I expect to graduate in 2020 so I have some relevant information to offer. I had trouble finding a flexible school that would work with my lifestyle. SNHU seemed to be the place. IT is flexible with your time if you want an education. Assignments are due by Sunday night. All my teachers have been understanding and flexible as well. You have two portions to the discussion. Thursday is the initial post and the responses are due Sunday night. Its online and its Self taught. You do have video but you have to read and do you own research. I think people expect it to be like sitting in class and being lectured. This is not it. The classes are self paced. If you read and research than you will pass your classes. The teachers are there too help you , but you really gotta have the mindset to teach yourself. Thats the trick to going to school online. Its self taught. I think a lot of people miss that when they take online classes and feel like they are missing something. My financial aid experience has been the same no matter what school I have gone too. It will always be an issue for some. I had to complete an appeal process to get my financial aid at SNHU. It was not easy. Its a good school. If you work hard, you will get what you want. Its not a give me a diploma education. The expectations to have teachers help you all the time is not realistic. Most of my college professors from a traditional college would barely respond to a phone call or email. So I feel like the Professors that I have had at SNHU are typical. I hope this helps and Good luck to all those seeking an education!"
Happy student

"I really can't understand why there are negative views. Anyways maybe people that have problems with a school are not cut out for online school. This isn't high school it's college. I have nothing but good things to say. The instructors are there to help you when needed. I'm still enrolled and satisfied."
love this school

"I'm currently a student at SNHU and I love it. I was nervous at first, because I had not tried online classes before but this has been so much better for my lifestyle. I've been with this school for a year now and the advisors are very helpful as well as the instructors. Most of my instructors have been professionals in the field they are teaching and have had a wealth of experience and knowledge, in fact I still keep up with some of my old instructors for advice. They advisors will call you very often to check on you and assist when needed. I just love this school."
