Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON SNHU! This school is terrible. They have ripped me off and no one will even email me back about a refund. I could not access basic tools on their site to even do my homework. The professors do not reply back and if they do, it is unhelpful and irrelevant. The website is not user friendly and they have links up that they do not use anymore. This school is the worst school ever."

"Don't waste your money as may not lead to credentials expected. Some teaching staff are rotten at instructing. Many courses require designing an experiment. That's great, but not many businesses are conducting in-house experiments so coursework is difficult to connect to business rather than clinical content and even in some courses forbidden. Module 'lectures' are less than a page. Sometimes no textbook. Often times learning links to content that is not peer-reviewed. For $20k+, the student should expect better/richer course content. Unless already employed, this degree could be of zero added-value to your resume."

"I'm really here to save anyone who plans on enrolling at SNHU you can do better...this is not a prestigious school. I currently work as an analyst for Johns Hopkins and no hiring manager will respect the fact that you have a degree from SNHU. I made the mistake of enrolling not knowing that they were only after my money. I attended one oune class then withdrew. Now I have a balance of 960 dollars. The MBA program is not nationally accredited by the AACSB. Think better for yourself & don't go to a school because they call you non-stop acting like they care. It's a business to them. I am currently at the university of Maryland MBA program and I feel this is the best decision I've made."

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2008
"The history program was dissipated after I graduated becuase as the President of the University said, " We do not want to be the Harvard of Hookset". He thought the program was to hard for his students. If you are looking at shchools i would not go to a school like this. I would want my school to be the harvard of Hookset."

"Warning!!! Rip Off! Do not waste your time or money on this school. There are so many more QUALITY choices. ASU and Oregon State are just two. My issue with them: I went to the school for nearly 2 years. I was working full time and going to school at the same time. Unfortunately, my work occasionally takes me out of the country, as a photographer working for the press. My adviser was fully aware of my situation, and knew I was possibly going to be out of town during a term. In fact I was traveling to Africa to cover a warzone. He suggested I still register and if called out of town I could drop the class, or if unable to get online the class would be dropped automatically if I did not join the class. The end result was, no I was not automatically dropped, I was fully charged, and due to the class being failed my GPA was dropped. At the same time Financial aid was dropped and I was forced to pay the fee for the class directly. I tried to contact my adviser, without any help, along with everyone else I was passed onto. I have since been unable to continue my education and the 15 grand that I have already spent is just a waste. The biggest problem with the school is they are unwilling to help, listen, or even understand. It is almost like they do not want you to succeed, just put money in their pockets. They will not work with you. The advisers are rude and unwilling to help. And they are not understanding at all. Not the way a school should be."

"SNHU is an excellent school that's offers some excellent classes. It took 3 years of hard work, but I now have an AS and a BS in CIS. The staff was excellent and supported me throughout the three years. Now I'm working on the Masters degree in data analytics."

"I loved college and it was the best four years of my life! The only thing is that it is very expensive and paying back student loans is very hard"

"The college was fine. I really dislike school but education is extremely important. If I had to do it all over again I would go to Southern New Hampshire university again."

"SNHU has competitive tuition and their instructors are responsive. I have completed two online degrees at different universities. I like them both equally and find that success in large part is up to the individual student. It is not easy and no one can manufacture time or individual attitude."

"I hate to see some of the negative reports about SNHU because I feel that those individual was unable to accomplish their goals at SNHU. All the things that I have learned at SNHU is similar to the things I learned as a undergraduate but SNHU was more in depth with their material , also as a undergraduate I graduated from a top 10 business program in NC which they tell you that SNHU business program is no joke and it's consistent with some of the tasks that I do at my current employer and past employer. I'm proud to say SNHU gave me a great education."
