"If you're thinking about going here, DO NOT DO IT. I'm in my last two classes to complete my Bachelor's degree. This school is a complete joke. I don't even know where to begin. I wish that someone had told me this before I decided to complete me degree here. The only reason I'm finishing is because I'm not about to have a huge student loan and just quit before finishing. Not only is this school a joke to any employer after seeing it on your resume, but I have literally not learned one thing. I have said that I've had my degree on my resume (before I actually do) and employers literally don't care. "Oh the school with all of the commercials." Yeah, it's embarrassing. The class literally depends on what teacher you get. Mind you, the teachers don't need ANY experience to be hired. They just need a degree and they're hired. Basically you have the teachers who don't even know what's going on in the class or you have the power trip ones who make up rules and ask you to do more than required even though they're "not allowed to do that." The tutoring system...hahahahahah ahhh yeah that's the only bigger joke than this school. If you want any help at all, good luck. Every class is basically the same and the "curriculum" isn't even about the actual subject. You will research how to research the subject. Not even kidding you, it's almost every class. The teachers don't even grade the papers, they put them through a system. Sometimes you do get a good teacher, usually once maybe twice a year if you're lucky. If you want to actually learn and feel like your student loan debt was worth it, DO. NOT. GO HERE."

"As I write this review it comes from the standpoint as a current Academic Advisor (employee) who's moral compass just cannot keep silent. If you take a look at the current reviews, they are horrible. Mostly 1 star. And for a good reason. The students are being left in the dust. It’s not that the employees do not care. Quite the opposite. We all have an enormous crazy passion for helping others. All departments from Advising to Student financial services and Admissions all have a background in high level customer service and/or former educators. The problem is not with the employees, it stems from the out of control growth of SNHU. If you look at the older reviews on this site, they are mostly 5 stars starting from the year 2012-2016. After 2016 the bottom falls out. Why? SNHU experienced explosive growth in their online division but did not add enough support staff to handle the avalanche of new students. A good example of this is with Advisor's case loads. A good manageable case load per advisor should be around 50 students along with handling incoming calls from random students. Currently Advisors are trying to manage (unsuccessfully) a case load of 200-300 students plus answer phones all day from additional students that are not in their case load. Things get forgotten, not done, passed on to other advisors, etc. A real mess. This article from takes a good look at what is taking place within Southern New Hampshire University."

Fantastic School!!! This school welcomes all!!!! - 1/30/2019
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2019
"This is an excellent school!!! They welcome all and they understand that there are people who may not have had the opportunity to pursue a degree due to various different reasons. I was disappointed to read from a prior review that this school admit "bad students whose education level may not be up to that person's personal standards", talk about that student being judgmental and elitist. My own personal experience is wonderful!!!, My advisor and my professors are very concerned about my well being and also my grades. I will most likely continue on with this school after I have completed my BA."

"Good school. I did B.A general studies IT. If you put in the effort you will get a degree. You have to be self motivated. Overall I have grown personally. I am happy I could complete and achieve a goal at SNHU online. I am considering a Masters program with SNHU."

"SNHU was great for my undergrad degree. The courses are extremely easy. I'm not sure how the quality is in comparison to other universities. I did attend Oregon State for a while and found SNHU to be worlds easier which makes me feel uneasy about the quality of SNHU. Also, none of the tests are proctored. I did get a great job after graduation within my own company. It was more luck than education, though. I'm having a hard time finding a job with a new company outside my organization. SNHU is not reputable. I started to pursue a Masters degree through SNHU in data analytics. However, they could not provide me with any stats (go figure) on the program. They told me Google stats of grads with an analytics degree. I wasn't looking for objective stats. I was looking for very subjective stats at SNHU. They could not and would not provide me with any. I quickly withdrew my active student status and will pursue a 2nd bachelors in computer science at a more reputable school. SNHU is a great school if you simply need a piece of paper saying you graduated. If you're looking for a career, look elsewhere. It's a joke school with easy classes."

"The college was fine. I really dislike school but education is extremely important. If I had to do it all over again I would go to Southern New Hampshire university again."
