Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2019

This review is for SNHU online degree. Expect to put in 35 hours per week minimum for each class. The only issue I have is the insane amount of writing- one paparr will span 7-8 weeks with only a portion due each week- resources, citations, & so many edits. I am highly annoyed by the many tiny steps that tie up my schedule- very hard to focus so much time even not working! The teachers are nice- the assignments nerve racking and tedious!

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2018

You will get a degree upon completion, but if you are looking for a relevant education you may want to search elsewhere. The online courses are dated, and the materials provided for reference are often broken links. The courses need a fresh over haul for this University to be worth it. Instructors vary greatly. Some are incredible and very helpful, but some will not even respond to queries in a weeks time and are happy to just provide the course template and hand out grades (no feedback just a grade).

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2019

My only issue is right now with the labs given for Environmental Science degrees. The kit used has materials which need to be washed, saved, etc, and the time it takes to do the experiment is not accurate from reading the instructions given. I just want to give a heads up to anyone taking lab courses online, which you have to do at home, to plan ahead like way ahead and plan to reuse all of the materials. I am barely keeping up and I thought I planned ahead and I had the heads up from other people. I am also going to contact my advisor to tell the school they need to make students aware before they begin.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I am more pleased with SNHU than I have words to express. I read some of the other reviews and agree that I was disappointed when I had to retake some of my undergraduate course. However, the level of information and education was much more in-depth with SNHU and I strongly feel that although the idea "sucked" the process was needed. I could not ask for a better advisor than Danielle Bouche. Getting a degree with SNHU requires dedication and hard work. If you are looking to just merely get by then I would not recommend this school. However, if you are genuinely interested in gaining an education and not just a piece of paper then SNHU is for you. This is not an EASY school, and as a student, that means completing your program is truly a personal success. SNHU does NOT just hand out degrees. Thank you SNHU. I would highly recommend this school to dedicated students.

Degree: General Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2019

I am writing this review because potential students need to be informed. I thought I found the perfect school to obtain my Master's in Accounting with Auditing. However, my issue isn't about that, my issue is about the evaluation of prerequisite courses. According to the program, if you have an undergraduate degree in Accounting, courses already taken will be waived. However, what they don't tell you is that these courses, especially the Individual Income Tax course, has to be taken within two years. Fellow students, this is rigged to force everyone to take this Income tax course again. They do not mention this in the program. I tried to dispute it but the mediator was one of their own and not neutral. So be wary. Unless you enjoy wasting money on classes you have already taken and plan on Mastering in Tax Accounting, tuition being cheaper may not be as cheap as it looks when you have to retake classes, because of their policy.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2019

I absolutely love SNHU. I have never had any problems with them. The financial aid office is great with communication and they let you know what they need from you and the advisors are very thorough. I graduate in March 2019, and so far I would recommend this university to anyone.

Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2018

I've been very pleased with this school, and the education I have received from it. I've had immediate and continual contact with counselors from the start of the program to the end. There has always been a friendly person there to help me with whatever I needed assistance with. The professors all come from experienced backgrounds and have always been very eager to help improve the skills I'm developing. They've always been friendly and provide useful feedback. Like any school, you will get more out of it if you put more into it. You can sometimes get by doing the minimum on your coursework, but if you work hard with the idea that what you make will be shown on your resume or portfolio, you will do better and gain much more from the course and from your instructor. Do not neglect the reading or other materials for each week. Active participation in courses that have discussions (which are almost all of them) is important to learning the material and improving your skills. Overall, I have really enjoyed this school. I started at a local college, and after having a lot of trouble with lack of available counselors, classes, and programs, I wanted to find something that would be locally and nationally accredited, non-profit, and would allow me to earn the degree I wanted while continuing to work. SNHU is a great school.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

Absolutely love this college. Made it easy to understand classwork and had flexible timelines for extenuating circumstances. The advisors both academic and financial were incredible to work with and actually cared about me as a person. I would absolutely recommend this college to anyone looking to further their education. Plus, most credits transferred with no headache.

Degree: Web Development
Graduation Year: 2018

Academic advisor was of no help. Missed 2 term start dates due to lack of information given to me. If they had given me the information I needed up front I would have been able to provide the correct documents in a timely manner. While I am an international student and understand that there are certain requirements needed I felt that they should have the knowledge to help me along my path to higher education.
