Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

SNHU Online is a great program for people like me that have already started their career and want to finish their degree but it's difficult to take classes in campus due to all of life's demands such as work, family and church. I would definitely recommend the program, one day after I finished I had already found a position within my filed of study.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2018

Prepare to write over and over and over and over and over again. I'm working on the math degree and I've probably written the equivalent of a novel in terms of discussion posts, discussion responses, essays, and final projects. And the real pain in the butt? You write an in-depth two paragraph response and it's not written the way the instructor EXACTLY wants it written or it's not EXACTLY written how some arbitrary rubric specifies it needs to be written: you get docked. Prepare to teach yourself everything. Instructors are basically just proctors. You get the homework assignments, tests/quizzes, readings, etc. and you do everything yourself. So know what you're getting into beforehand. Finally, the courses are extremely linear. The format of every class is practically identical; each course is separated into eight modules. Each module including a discussion board post assignment and usually a homework assignment (along with the required readings), and you'll always have a final project worth 30% of your grade. I would go with SNHU as a last resort but only as a last resort.

Degree: Informatics
Graduation Year: 2019

My enrollment counselor was really nice but failed to tell me the cost. I accepted my award letter then last week realized that even with my financial aid I had a bill where I owe them money. Out was not a small amount. I explained that I needed a school where I could use financial aid cuz my previous school shouldn't let me. I can't afford to pay out of pocket and I waned an education. This was extremely disappointing. I'm 4 weeks in and the last week trying to decide if it's even worth it anymore. I would stay away or at least do a ton of research first. I prefer to stay away from the Financial services. Also right before financial aid was due to post they told me I needed to get a paper for educational purposes that needed notarized. I can't believe they waited till right before they were to post. Also the form has to be mailed they said they can't post my funds until they get this document. Unfortunately for me I don't have $3 to my name right now post it took me 3 hours to find a notary near me. I'm just saying I guess I was stupid and got excited to start back to school that I ignored warning signs. I think I'm going to go to a community college... Good luck to you and your education!

Degree: English Language and Literature, General
Graduation Year: 2018

I am a student at Southern New Hampshire University and am currently in my Senior year. I received my Associates in 2015 and went to Manchester to walk for graduation. Studying online can be difficult, it takes commitment and dedication like nothing else imagineable, but I am thankful for SNHU. If it were not for SNHU I would not have been able to get this far. While attending school, I lost my grandmother, my cousin, was in a life changing vehicle accident, had to move half way across country, and battled with some health issues. A traditional campus was never an option with so many things going on. As far as paying for school goes SNHU is a bit expensive, but not in comparison to other private schools of similar rank. Private education is always more than public schools though. All of that being said, the learning experience and the relationships formed are priceless. If you think you can handle intense study programs over a duration of years and a classroom setting is not an option for you, I would recommend SNHU. I work in Private Security while in school and without the Associates I would be making about $3. less an hour.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

The claim I filed was several hours after the so called deadline to withdraw from classes. What kind of system is SNHU running? SNHU is clearly not in favor of students succeeding. This decision is appalling and flat out corrupt. This decision has nothing to do with taking words out of context. This has all to do with the advisors not taking the responsibility & leading me in the direction I sought out. This is a blatant disregard for the truth, which I expressed, in order for the university to financially gain at my expense. I will seek counsel for this. This is wrong. I was deceived and my interest in attending school, using only government funds was compromised by the greed of this institution. I will be sure to draw up a lengthy review of the facts, which will explain how SNHU is now forcing me to pay for services not received and how they did not have my best interest in mind. All that was wanted was to get me registered and locked in only to deny my claim and take my money. How evil.

Degree: Cyber Security
Graduation Year: 2017

First starting with this school was good with very few issues, which most could be resolved within 3-10 days; however, financial aid office is terrible. They will ask you over and over for the same paperwork if one small detail is missed and they will not tell you what it is until you call them, email reply is almost a never. Started to have major issues with the certain instructors, particularly an English Comp II instructor that was very discriminating against my topic choices and actually failed me, the same report was given to another instructor in Eng Com II and they said it was great and had no issues and should have been accepted, once I submitted a dispute against this instructor, the school said she had the right to deny the topic and fail the course and that I had no right to ask other SNHU instructors to review the course. They failed me with an "F" and required to take again, the next instructor loved my topic and past me with perfect colors on the same report. This has happened to me several times, the school is only out to protect there instructors and make money. I have been with other schools and this is by far the worst one yet, I transferred out to another university. I would not recommend this school to anyone, some instructors are great and others are discriminating and the school will not do anything about it.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2015

I took a class in the Graduate Creative Writing Program that was great. I wanted to take another class before switching to the official degree program. The Coursework Only Representatives were definitely not friendly and totally turned me off from pursuing the degree program unfortunately.

Degree: European History
Graduation Year: 2017

SNHU is an absolutely wonderful school to attend. The school offers condensed courses so you can give extreme focus on 1-2 courses for 8 weeks; instead of 5-7 courses for 5 months. This allows you to not only study condensed material, but it gives you the ability to retain the information stronger to use later on in life. The staff is extremely responsive, always responding within 24 hours with any question that you may have, and always gave me the help I was asking for. It is also extremely affordable for people looking to save money on college. Not only with cheap classes; but additionally, the student has the ability to graduate quicker and cheaper due to the school acceptance of CLEP and DSST exams. SNHU accepts all CLEP/DSST exams at the ACE recommended score and will accept up to 90 Credit Hours worth of tests. I personally used this feature for 78 credit hours, and paid only $16,000 for my degree, when the average Bachelor's degree cost $100,000. I highly recommend Southern New Hampshire University because they give you more than a worthwhile education for such an affordable school.

Degree: Business Administration

Definitely take a look at Florida Institute of Technology. A University that cares about their students and doesn't take advantage of them. Be extremely cautious when dealing with SNHU. I recently withdrew from classes and they still are trying to charge me for the classes. After several attempts to of explaining my situation that resulted in their adviser not removing my enrollment in time, they are failing to remove the balance. You have many different options and I believe you should choose another University that is ethical and admits to their mistakes.
