Southern New Hampshire University Online Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (215)
Currently entering my 4th term I can say the program is good to go. My co-workers have evaluated the program and have stated it is no joke. I started my course work, moved and never picked it back up. So back at it I go. It is a different feel, being online, but the content is the same using a majority of McGraw Hill online content. It is like anything else, you get out of it what you put into it. I chose SNHU as they have a brick and mortar school and are NCAA D2 as well as non-profit. This to me make them stand out from the diploma mills. Glad I picked back up and can't wait to finish. Credits from other institutions transferred with no issue.
Originally started this program because they are one of a few who offer this as an online program. Came within two classes of graduation and ran into a young professor with little understanding how to manage or teach an online class. When I dropped the class the university charged me for the whole class while refusing to address concerns. It is strongly suggested you consider other options for school.
I had a situation where my instructor had some discriminating behavior and I shared it with my academic advisor and she was not helpful at all. Actually, she tried to down-play it and make it seem as if I was taking it wrong. My academic advisor and her immediate lead tried to convince me that there was no Dean of Students for the online students and there was basically no one I could talk to. I was informed of this third party on the outside that would look into the matter and that everything had to filled out on paper. As much as I have paid this school in tuition, I should have been able to speak to someone and not blown off being informed about some form. Oh yeah, by the way the academic counselor saw the email the instructor sent to me. The situation was not handled right and I will no longer attend a school that allow such behavior as this.
The classes are nice online but a lot of writing and the most stupid thing is the discussion board . I would like to say the a Advisor are always interested in your success they are nice, the professor are good, but the financial aid is the worst system you never could imagine I have been asking to talk to the dean and most of the time they say oh leave ur phone number he will call you back that's a lie. The worst thing is that they ask too much loans plus for they give u financial aid is a nightmare. I would recommend the classes in there but if u want study at SNHU least have all the papers actualized bc like I said financial aid is the worst of the worst they don't care about helping you most of the time they don't answer u back or when u call to ask ? They put you on hold to ask somebody else because they don't know.
I have only attended SNHU Online for 4 terms. Some of the advisors are difficult to get in contact with when you need something but they will call constantly if they need to get in contact with you. Second, when it comes to One Stop, FORGET getting any REAL answers. Save your money and go to an instate college that offers online degrees. The curriculum is just like at a brick and mortar, but again when it comes the financial side, you will get the run a round.
Southern New Hampshire University's online program for a degree in Creative Writing with a concentration in fiction was perfect for me. As a single mother of two children in school, working full time and with a full time life outside of work, this program has been excellent. The advisers and teaching staff were helpful. Anything I asked was answered promptly. Financial aid was explained to me and was an expedient process. Graduation was beautiful and I flew from California to go. I would recommend this college to anyone who needs to do an online degree. I will be getting my graduate degree with them.
I would highly recommend this school for anyone working professionals looking to expand their knowledge or high school graduates. The instructors are topnotch and will go out of their way to help you succeed. If you are looking for a school to get your bachelors or master give SNHU a try you'll be glad you did.
Advisors and professors have been incredibly helpful and attentive every step of the way. I did not feel like "another number"; I truly felt appreciated and encouraged to pursue my degree. Classes are well-structured and very clear-cut. Tuition was very reasonable, considering the quality of the education you receive. Fantastic experience all around!
So far, I'm having a wonderful experience. The professors and advisors are very helpful. They do follow up calls and emails to make sure you're comfortable with the format. My professor always provides feedback positive or on what needs improvement when posting each grade. If they feel like you are unsure of what is expected or heading in the wrong direction they always make sure to touch base. The work load is a lot, but not overwhelming as with other online programs I've reviewed or attended. SNHU made sure to start my online program off slowly so I wouldn't be destined for failure my very first term or feel overwhelmed by the workload. As you build your confidence, you may increase the your courses.
I love SNHU, it was very different than my traditional college experiences. The personal focus must be higher as you are not on campus, its just you holding yourself accountable. Do your research and I would recommend a non-profit college. They have been helpful and seem genuinely interested in your success. You have one contact and the tech support is first rate. They are also veteran friendly. If you are looking for true online experience without the unnecessary layers checkout SNHU.
