Student & Graduate Reviews
SNHU - research its relevance first - 6/12/2018

"Please do some research before attending online. I chose to complete my MBA and afterwards found out the degree was basically worthless. New employers were not impressed and one even told me it was probably a waste of time. No GMAT should have been my first sign that this was not a highly rated program. If you are going to spend the money on a Masters degree please make sure you are getting your moneys worth."

"I highly do not recommend this college or their online program. They are all about the money and not at all about the education of their students. After having dropped a business class as a first time freshman and being toyed around with by my so called counselor they tried to collect 2 grand from me for a class that I didn't even take. I had told my counselor early on i had wanted to drop this class and was ignored for the sake of them attempting to scam me and collect what they wanted for the class. Needless to say I contacted my lawyer and let their financial department who records everything students say over the phone lines in order to blackmail them into paying for services they want to argue the student received. Needless to say I refused to pay a thing and disputed the charges after I contacted the Better business Bureau and filed a complaint. Apparently I'm not the only student they have tried to pull this scam with. I am glad I have always had my own lawyer and do not recommend this school. It is all about the money. Don't believe me do the research. That is all. SCAM artists!!!!!"

"I like SNHU. I attended two brick and mortar establishments (a private for profit and a state school) prior to SNHU. The private university proved too costly considering I was not working, and the state school was absolute garbage. I decided to go back to school once I had an employer who provided tuition assistance, and I chose SNHU. The reason I selected them (this was in 2012) was because they seemed reputable, the people I spoke with were friendly, and I didn't care much for the reputation of the other schools which offered exclusively online degrees. Plus, the tuition rates were lower than the company partnered school believe it or not. I am a relatively intelligent person, I had a 3.6 GPA when I left the private university, and was on the Dean's list every semester at the state school. I graduated SNHU's undergraduate program with a 3.834 GPA, and I am halfway through the MBA program with a 4.0. Granted, not all of the work is difficult. But, it takes time and dedication to ensure that you submit assignments when they are due and to an adequate level of quality. I have had both good and unsavory professors, but no matter what, I do have to spend considerable time ensuring things are completed. This is not a cakewalk with a 40+ hour a week job and two courses per term. I thrive in a self study environment, and I think that's really what this type of educational forum caters to. I have no major complaints with communication, feedback, or grading. As for those who state professors go easy grading, I was accidentally sent an assessment for another student's assignment (we had the same name), and they received a 14% (and deserved it). Admitting any student does make it more difficult for group projects and discussion board interaction, but it does reiterate the effort you put forth in your own work. It's really a shame for anyone to suggest that a degree from SNHU is not respectable. Anyone who spends their time attempting to get a higher education should be congratulated, especially considering how difficult it is to get out from under student loans. The ROI on investment isn't a guarantee right now. I get it, it's not Harvard, but I am not an idiot just bumbling through assignments and getting free A's either. I have recommended them to many people (both of my siblings now attend) and I'm considering a second Master's program. The only thing I cannot really comment on is the financial service. I don't have any student loans and I never get any scholarships or grants. I pay them, they don't bother me."

"I decided to write a review for Southern New Hampshire University for several reasons. First, I am a returning graduate student who is currently in pursue of obtaining a second master’s degree. I completed both my undergraduate and graduate degrees (engineering) at a state university. What I love so much about Southern New Hampshire University is their communication approach to talking to students. I have never received such kindness from staff members. On the contrary, I have had to deal with the constant headaches from disgruntled advisors from state universities. Southern New Hampshire is not prestigious; however, they provide an excellent education. College education is not about prestige. College is about obtaining skills through quality education. Southern New Hampshire University may be small compared to other colleges, but they’re big on providing great education."
