Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2019

My only issue is right now with the labs given for Environmental Science degrees. The kit used has materials which need to be washed, saved, etc, and the time it takes to do the experiment is not accurate from reading the instructions given. I just want to give a heads up to anyone taking lab courses online, which you have to do at home, to plan ahead like way ahead and plan to reuse all of the materials. I am barely keeping up and I thought I planned ahead and I had the heads up from other people. I am also going to contact my advisor to tell the school they need to make students aware before they begin.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

I am more pleased with SNHU than I have words to express. I read some of the other reviews and agree that I was disappointed when I had to retake some of my undergraduate course. However, the level of information and education was much more in-depth with SNHU and I strongly feel that although the idea "sucked" the process was needed. I could not ask for a better advisor than Danielle Bouche. Getting a degree with SNHU requires dedication and hard work. If you are looking to just merely get by then I would not recommend this school. However, if you are genuinely interested in gaining an education and not just a piece of paper then SNHU is for you. This is not an EASY school, and as a student, that means completing your program is truly a personal success. SNHU does NOT just hand out degrees. Thank you SNHU. I would highly recommend this school to dedicated students.

Degree: General Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

Good school. I did B.A general studies IT. If you put in the effort you will get a degree. You have to be self motivated. Overall I have grown personally. I am happy I could complete and achieve a goal at SNHU online. I am considering a Masters program with SNHU.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2019

I am writing this review because potential students need to be informed. I thought I found the perfect school to obtain my Master's in Accounting with Auditing. However, my issue isn't about that, my issue is about the evaluation of prerequisite courses. According to the program, if you have an undergraduate degree in Accounting, courses already taken will be waived. However, what they don't tell you is that these courses, especially the Individual Income Tax course, has to be taken within two years. Fellow students, this is rigged to force everyone to take this Income tax course again. They do not mention this in the program. I tried to dispute it but the mediator was one of their own and not neutral. So be wary. Unless you enjoy wasting money on classes you have already taken and plan on Mastering in Tax Accounting, tuition being cheaper may not be as cheap as it looks when you have to retake classes, because of their policy.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2019

I absolutely love SNHU. I have never had any problems with them. The financial aid office is great with communication and they let you know what they need from you and the advisors are very thorough. I graduate in March 2019, and so far I would recommend this university to anyone.

Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2018

I've been very pleased with this school, and the education I have received from it. I've had immediate and continual contact with counselors from the start of the program to the end. There has always been a friendly person there to help me with whatever I needed assistance with. The professors all come from experienced backgrounds and have always been very eager to help improve the skills I'm developing. They've always been friendly and provide useful feedback. Like any school, you will get more out of it if you put more into it. You can sometimes get by doing the minimum on your coursework, but if you work hard with the idea that what you make will be shown on your resume or portfolio, you will do better and gain much more from the course and from your instructor. Do not neglect the reading or other materials for each week. Active participation in courses that have discussions (which are almost all of them) is important to learning the material and improving your skills. Overall, I have really enjoyed this school. I started at a local college, and after having a lot of trouble with lack of available counselors, classes, and programs, I wanted to find something that would be locally and nationally accredited, non-profit, and would allow me to earn the degree I wanted while continuing to work. SNHU is a great school.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

Absolutely love this college. Made it easy to understand classwork and had flexible timelines for extenuating circumstances. The advisors both academic and financial were incredible to work with and actually cared about me as a person. I would absolutely recommend this college to anyone looking to further their education. Plus, most credits transferred with no headache.

Degree: Web Development
Graduation Year: 2018

Academic advisor was of no help. Missed 2 term start dates due to lack of information given to me. If they had given me the information I needed up front I would have been able to provide the correct documents in a timely manner. While I am an international student and understand that there are certain requirements needed I felt that they should have the knowledge to help me along my path to higher education.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I have and will recommend SNHU to other students or people interested in furthering their education. I completed my bachelors there and am almost done with my masters there as well. I have been an online student from the beginning, which allows for flexibility, but requires discipline and determination. I had a few minor issues with professors, but SNHU handled them quickly and adequately. My admissions advisor was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. My academic advisor for my undergrad was amazing and constantly reached out to congratulate me or offer her assistance. I ended up meeting her when I went to the campus for an honor society induction. I like that the courses and rubrics are universal throughout the university instead of being individual depending on the instructor. This makes it easier to know what to expect instead of having to remember the expectations of each individual professor. A variety of individuals from the psychology department reached out to me throughout my undergrad to introduce themselves and make sure I knew they supported me and I could reach out if necessary. Some people may find the random phone calls and emails annoying, but I transferred to SNHU from a different school where I didn't even know who my academic advisor was and I was failing courses without professors or an advisor reaching out. I like that SNHU is on top of it and doesn't completely leave everything up to you. Its nice to be reminded that they care.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

SNHU is a great school. Out of every school that I looked into, it was the best when it came to time and my schedule. It is an accredited school, and there are challenges like any other college. The advisors are professional and usually respond to emails within two days ( the latest ). If you would like to speak to your advisor, you can make an appointment or call during their scheduled hours. My favorite thing about SNHU is that discussions are due on Thursday by midnight ( class discussions ) and assignments are all due by Sunday at midnight, this allows me to maintain a full time job. Going to SNHU online is convenient and challenging at the same time. Not to mention I can take courses on campus any semester I want. The psychology program is awesome! I had a really hard time with the biology class, but my professor went out of his way to make sure I did not fail. All of my professors have been attentive to the subjects and have explained any questions that I have had. The financial aid office explains and walks every student through every step, the only problem I have had is getting a hold of them on busy days. I recommend making an appointment with the financial aid department in advance. I definitely feel inspired to finish my degree and pursue my master's at SNHU. I recommend SNHU to anyone who wants to go to a respected accredited university that will not leave you in debt that takes 10+ years to pay off. Going to SNHU is one of the best decisions I have made since graduating high school. I have potential employers who are wiling to meet with me once I get my degree. I worked for a lawyer for four years and she looked into SNHU and was extremely proud of where I was going to school. With that being said, SNHU definitely gets a 4 star from me.
