Student & Graduate Reviews (228)
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.
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.
One of the best college's I've ever attended. Very helpful staff, great teachers, and an overall fabulous experience. I am currently a junior and will be graduating next year and I am so happy that I decided to attend SNHU. I was able to transfer more credits than I even thought from other schools which gave me a great advantage. I'm sure that for profit schools wouldn't have let me do the same because they would have wanted me to spend more money that I didn't need to. I would recommend this college to anyone looking for a good solid education that is affordable and worth all the time it takes.
I attended SNHU since November of 2015 to July 2017 and it has been great. The advisors that I had were extremely helpful and always checked on me weekly. The instructors that I had in the Criminal Justice program were very knowledgeable and were very experienced in the field. I had instructors that were attorneys, police officers, and the Dean of the program which made the learning experience very real. I feel that if you are very driven and can handle the pressure of turning in weekly assignments then you will have no problem having a successful story at SNHU. School is going to be tough sometimes but once you reach your final semester it will be worth it!
I had dropped out of my local community college in 2013. School was not a fit for me at the time. Needless to say I come back in 2017 to get my associates, which I was only 15 credits from receiving. I have sense received my associates degree. The financial aid office was always able to assist with my concerns and charges. My academic advisor also would check up on me through-out the term. You do have some professors that suck at replying at emails but others that are extremely prompt. I'm glad I went back to school, as the online program was the perfect fit for me.
I saw a few poor reviews and wanted to put in my opinion. I do have to state that I've only been enrolled for one term, so take my review for what it is. My advisor has always been extremely helpful and has even rearranged my classes to fit a schedule that caters to my needs. Both of my instructors have been great. One is more hands on than the other, but overall, they have been extremely responsive. For instance, I was behind one week in my classes due to a surgery my son had. I emailed my English instructor, who has extensive experience in teaching, and he offered me a grace period. He has answered all my questions and helped when I was confused on the subject matter. Another instance is when there was a glitch and half of my milestone project was not uploaded. My grade did reflect this, but my instructor allowed me to email her the rest of my paper and regarded it. Now, regarding the format of the classes, there is nothing special about this format. If you don't love it, you won't do well at many online schools. This format is used widely across schools using blackboard. My classes are difficult, but not impossible. In regards to financial aid, I've never experienced an issue. I did have reason to email them recently regarding a balance I had on my account. They were quick to respond and answer my concerns. So far, I love the school and the programs. As with anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. After finishing my Associates, I will be returning for my bachelors.
I've been attending SNHU online for over a year now and I love it. I am learning a lot and the courses are very good quality. I recommended SNHU online to my daughter and she is now attending as well to complete a Bachelor of Science degree. Most adults today have to work and SNHU online is a great option to finish your education. The school is also very affordable. I would highly recommend SNHU.
