"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."

"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."

Need an Nurse Practictioner Program! - 9/8/2017
Degree: RN to BSN
Graduation Year: 2016
"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 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 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."

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017
"Low quality education, inexprienced instructors, some of the staff at the international office seem to be very rude, and real costly but the education you get seems to be subpar. They were very eager to accept me here, no surprise considering the admission rate but it was not what I expected."

"Here is the thing, the classes were great, the teachers were great, everything else is REALLY REALLY BAD. I started to feel that the school was was lying to me so I had to take matters in my own hand and call the Department of ED. I had to file a complaint, I feel like they are scammers, they take your money, they tell you all kinds of different stories, but they arent mean about at least. They they dont think you know anything about financial services so they will try to tell you anything. Nothing makes sense, watch how they process your aid, if they even do. It probably goes into their pocket, there is a reason why this private school can be non-profit."

"Didn't get to go to SNHU. Applied and got in but dealt with a very annoying advisor who took days to get back to me everytime I had a question. After wasting 3 weeks w the Finaid dept. they literally tell me that they won't give me the Direct Loan I was approved for because I already have loans. Can you believe that? I'm pretty sure most ppl applying to that c888 school has student loans. I think they cater more to ppl who can pay cash but they need to say that up front. I dealt w them for more than a month for them to make a personal decision not to get the loan for me in the end. This school is ghetto and unprofessional, refusing to help students because they are too busy minding their personal business. And their explanation? Because SNHU wants to ensure student success they don't give additional loans. Success is whether I can get a job after I graduate to pay the loans,not having the loans in the first place. Sounds like an excuse they can use when their graduates DON'T get jobs. I don't care how popular this school is, it is ghetto and like to waste ppl's time. If they would just say up front "we'd rather you be able to pay out of pocket" it would've saved me time and an application fee. F*** them forreal."

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015
"Attending SNHU's online Master's program in English is one of the best decisions I ever made. I was able to find adjunct college teaching positions within two months of graduating. All of the professors were professional and helpful. The classes all helped me improve my skills not only as a teacher, but as a writer and researcher. I would highly recommend SNHU to anyone looking to further his or her education."

"I loved my experience in SNHU. The Professors, Advisors, and all the staff were very helpful. They really care about their students. My advisor will consistently reach out to me to make sure I am doing okay in all my classes. He would reach out ahead of time and from term to term to make sure I'm in the right path in obtaining my degree. All the staff I encountered, from One Stop staff to IT, were all been very helpful. I was never stressed or felt lost, because they were always there for me. I've never encountered anything like all the great experiences I had at SNHU from my previous colleges. How I wish I've known about this school sooner. I definitely recommend SNHU to all students."
