"I'm in my second term and I am pleasantly surprised at how smoothly everything is going. I am a transfer student, so I've done online schooling before. The admissions process was a breeze; the counselor was amazing. My academic advisor is cool and my instructors have been awesome. The key to success in an online setting is setting weekly goals and deadlines. Never wait until the last minute to do any work(even discussions). You have to be a good self learner, but there are a ton of resources and people to help. You just have to ask for It! Good luck everyone!!"

"Great school. Like all education, it's what you make of it. It is true, you can skate by at SNHU and one does encounter students who seem to eat paint chips in their spare time. This largely disappears once you get out of the intro classes. With that said, the teachers care and hold you to the curriculum. Hard work is rewarded and you will learn. A lot of the negative reviews seem to be from those who don't invest the time required to make online education valuable. Others seem to think SNHU needs to more closely resemble Harvard. It is not for everyone and you must take it for the modest school it is. Try hard and I promise you will feel proud of the genuinely quality education you receive."

"The history program was dissipated after I graduated becuase as the President of the University said, " We do not want to be the Harvard of Hookset". He thought the program was to hard for his students. If you are looking at shchools i would not go to a school like this. I would want my school to be the harvard of Hookset."

"SNHU is running a grift on its students. Note that it gives you 3 credits for 8 weeks of work, instead of the normal 16 at a real college, but you pay as if you're at University of X or X State University. This system is in place so SNHU can suck down massive amounts of federal aid, not because it is the best way of providing quality education. SNHU exists to make money for SNHU ... tho' it is a not-for-profit unlike Phoenix and the other thieving dens. Regardless of the on-line schools' for-profit or not-for-profit status, at the end of the program, you get lots of debt for a sh!t sandwich without the bread. Now if you want to just fill a block, enroll here, but you should know that in the real world, people will in fact look down upon you for having a SNHU degree. SNHU is rotten to the core: they get only crappy professors (a great number of them educated only in on-line settings, which is why this is more a Ponzi scheme than a college) who make only $2200 a course (what's their motivation to go above and beyond for you when the prof is getting $110 on average for each student? ... that's $13.75 per week per student ... how many hours of the prof's attention each week do you think $13.75 buys you? -- about 15 minutes if your lucky); the work that students get away with performing is a pathetic (20 pages of reading a week in a class, for example) but the grades are inflated through the ceiling; and the staff designing the curricula have joke degrees (why do their deans, for example, have only MA degrees, and then from 5th-rate schools?). If you want a real educational experience, enroll at your local community college, earn your intro credits there, then go do the hard work and make the sacrifices at a brick and mortar school to get a real degree."

"I was a college dropout and I was working 2 jobs just to be broke by the end of the month. SNHU has made it possible for me to work and get my college degree. I love SNHU. The people are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Financial aid paid for my education. I loved my SNHU experience and I recommend it to anyone!"
