Student & Graduate Reviews (228)
I've only been attending SNHU online for a few terms, and for the most part it has been a great experience. I was able to transfer almost all of the credits I had previously earned and was able to begin my first term with enough credits to be qualified as a junior. A few complaints: 1. During the first couple of terms, I had a 'new student' advisor who was almost harassing with the number of times she would call me - I understand I'm new to the school, but I have a 4.0 GPA and transferred in with a high number of credits...I don't need to be called 3 times a month. 2. I have had a few professors that were extreme misses - specifically in the term I just completed. There were assignments I went extremely above and beyond on but received pretty mediocre grades. When I contacted the professor about this, I received an answer that was just as vague as the rubric I was told to follow. 3. I wish I could take more classes during a term. While they are challenging, I feel taking 3 would be doable and I'd love to be able to graduate that much sooner - maybe I'll bring this up with my new advisor.... Overall, I've learned some great things and can absolutely say you'll get as much out of this school as you put into it - it's challenging and many professors grade harshly, but I'm glad I'm finishing up my degree here.
I wish I had paid attention to these reviews. I wish I would have searched out more schools online and they charge alot for leaving the school going to another one thats qualified. I think it's a waste of money and time. The school is only about money and debt. The Instructor I had was unprofessional. I had an issue with an Instructor and she emailed the Dean like she was concerned. The Dean sent me an email addressing an issue I never knew we had without even addressing me. Looking for another school.
I have a BS from SNHU I earned in 2014 and an MBA I earned in 2017. So far, all these degrees have gotten me is debt. I cannot find a job with these degrees. I am working with an Associates Degree I earned from a community college in 1989. No one will hire me. I have received a lot of feedback that it is because of SNHU's reputation for being a place where degrees are purchased and not earned, I am now in debt and I have never used either one of these degrees a day in my life.
SNHU was wonderful for me. I applied to finish my degree that I had been in and out of for years. They accepted all of my transfer credits which no other school could offer. The advisors we're a little pushy but there when I needed them. Not all of the professors we're great but I'm sure every university has that. I definitely recommend this school for those who want to finish their degree.
In the beginning it was a great school. Some unforeseen things came in my life and I could not attend. I had already purchased books for the semester I was planning on taking. I was charged for the voucher. I tried to return the books to the school since they were brand new. Never opened. They were only willing to give me an 1/8 of what I just charged. So now I owe 400. I was also charged an attorney fee for a letter of 18.00 that I also have to pay. Had I done better research I would have chosen somewhere else to go. All I can say is wait to get your books if you cant attend for the semester! Also, Id you do online you are pretty much your own teacher. Power points and weekly discussion posts is about all youre gonna get.
DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL IF YOU HAVE ANY SORT OF DOCUMENTED DISABILITY, OR MEDICAL ISSUES. EVEN WITH PROPER DOCUMENTATION, THE SCHOOL WILL NOT FOLLOW LAWS. NOT GREAT WITH THEIR STUDENTS SUCCESS. ADVISORS:HAVE IQ OF ROCK & ONLY CARE ABOUT A PAYCHECK
Worst school do not apply. Stuck with leftover tuition. I did the work over and beyond what they were asking for the instructor kept giving me low grades. Followed APA standard. Go to your counselor doesn't help they stick up for the professors. Unprofessional.
I would have stayed at SNHU had they had a MSN-FNP program. I am currently at South University and horribly regret going there. I can't help but compare schools. SNHU is a fraction of the cost and the quality of education you will get at SNHU is beyond what you would expect. The instructors are very into the class and that made me into the classes. My counselor was amazing on keeping me posted and reminding me to register for the next classes. The grading system is what you expect...you were quizzed on material that you were taught. At SU, we are given busy work that has nothing to do with our quizzes and we can't get to our chapters to read them because we are given so much busy work to do! It's horrible. I am trying to find schools to transfer to that will accept my classes from SU. Your financial aid is nothing to worry about at SNHU whereas SU....let's just say you have to really watch it. We'll leave it at that. And the instructors.....God I miss them. Dr. P and Dr. L and so many other fine ones......they made class worth going to. I seriously logged on daily because I enjoyed class. The instructors at SU like to belittle the students and make them feel like they are not as smart as we thought we were. They need a mental health eval before they are allowed to represent the school. For example, they don't point out what you are not doing right, but they like to be sarcastic on your work. I mean, either tell me how to correct it or shut the **** up. I'm a grown adult. I don't need this garbage from these idiots. I'm telling you.....you can't be SNHU. If they had an NP program, I would tranfer in a heartbeat. When you leave SNHU and go elsewhere, that is when you realize how great SNHU was.
I attended SNHU from July of 2014 to Apr of 2017 and completed an MA in American History. The professors for the most part were helpful and quick to get back with you, the advisers were pretty good to, my 1st adviser got promoted, he was awesome, my second one was ok just not as good as my first. I attended U of I Chicago and a community college and SNHU was as good if not better than the programs I had there. It is a great school, priced affordably, accredited and the degrees are solid and will help you in your career. Throughout the program there were webinars done by many businesses and government agencies (such as the State the Department) that gave information about how to use your degree to pursue a career with them, very helpful.
