"The overall values of TUW is great however for it being an online school, you would hope they would have a bigger and better with supportive staff especially in your final year. The instructors are fantastic, but the MFT staff could do so much better. It seems very understaffed not as supportive as it could be, lacks in following up meaning when a student has an urgent message to be answered it takes 3 days before hearing back. Its not as consistent. It could be better. If you want consistency, strong support, a faculty who actually cares that your more then just a number this is not the school to attend in my perspective. They have made my first practicum experience a nightmare. No student who is investing in there school and program should feel this way. My suggestion read reviews trust your gut, spend more money on a school that gives you the support you need."

"I attended NY Medical College, which is a Touro school, for my MPH and had a great experience. The coursework was rigorous and the professors were helpful, accessible, and expected excellence. So I didn't hesitate to pursue my doctorate at Touro. I completed 4 courses before I withdrew -- the courses were almost identical to the classes I already took for my MPH, except a bit more volume of work was required. It was difficult to get in touch with professors and in a couple of cases when I emailed I never got a response. The accelerated semester program does allow you to get your degree more quickly than other schools, but I felt that the quality of teaching was not as good, the work I was required to do was repetitive and definitely not at the doctoral level. If you need a terminal degree and want to get it fast and relatively inexpensively, this school is for you. If you want rigorous coursework and tough professors, go elsewhere, especially if your career requires a research-based PhD."

"I was nervous about getting an MBA at Touro because it isn’t a big name program but decided to because (1) they are a non-profit, (2) they are affordable, (3) they have an established online teaching program (its still the pandemic) and (4) their program is currently in the ACBSP accreditation process (currently WSCUC). I went into the program with low expectations but I have been pleasantly surprised with quality of the program = Berkeley’s online classes!"

"I attended TUW part-time and completed the MFT program in three years. I completed the practicum portion in ten months, working in a school setting counseling children and adolescents. I'm currently waiting for my associate number. All my colleagues from TUW are completing post hours in private practice, community mental health agencies, mental health centers specializng in specific theoretical orientations (eg, DBT); some colleagues have already become licensed. I recommend TUW's MFT program if you're a busy person who has to work full-time and motivated."

"The Marriage and Family program is a quality program and school. It is not easy, but you'll learn a lot. I am just about finished with my second practicum course. If you want to do your MFT coursework here, it is important that you know you will be required to record sessions (audio and video) with your clients. You'll need to get the clients permission to record. All schools are not like this, but because Touro has COAMFTE certification, it is a mandatory requirement that you do that. You'll also be required to do some mock recordings (you can use friends, and relatives for these) as part of coursework before you start practicum. Another thing you should know is that in your practicum course conferences, all levels of students are mixed together. So if you're a beginning practicum student, you could be in the course with more advanced students. You could be the only beginning practicum student mixed in with students that are close to graduating the program. This has advantages and disadvantages."

"While I felt like the degree was useful as a stepping stone to my current PhD, and the tuition was quite low for a regionally accredited program, the actual program felt disjointed a bit. There were several times where the course material either was repetitive, or it was not that in depth. I actually really enjoyed about 2-3 out of the 13 courses I took because those professors seemed quite engaged in the courses. The other ones barely seemed to even be there. Also, the actual grading system was a bit strange to me even though I actually did well in the program. The most frustrating part though was other departments took a lot longer than expected to respond. Overall the actual program was ok."

"I recently complete Touro University's MFT program and have just been accepted into their doctoral program PsyD. I researched carefully before choosing a university. As a parent and working professional, I needed flexibilty but wanted a solid education. I needed a high level of value and I did not want to graduate with $75+ in loans like so many of my colleagues. I also required an MFT program that was regionally accredited as my state requires it for licensure. Touro's program was a great fit, hitting all of my requirements. Their online program is affordable, accessible and flexible to meet the demands most working students have. One caveat, it really helps to be a motivated and resourceful individual. The university offers great support and the online format can be fantastic, but you have to take an active role in your development and studies, ask questions, be persistent and do the work."

"Touro University Worldwide (TUW) currently is concealing information that its Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) program requires at least two people to complete. I am single, and I am by myself. Thus, I cannot complete this program. No one disclosed this requirement to me before I enrolled in the program. After six weeks into the program, I learned that this program cannot be completed without another person. I asked Kim Strictler (Senior Director of Enrollment Counseling) about this requirement, and she indirectly blamed me for not reading through the syllabus. Nothing in the syllabus said this program requires at least two people. I found out about this requirement when I did the signature assignment. Now that I am enrolled, I am stuck with this school for the Fall semester. I am sure that TUW will not return my money; thus, my money is gone. I have to pay the tuition for nothing because I cannot complete this program. I have to find another school for the next semester. I am writing this to alert future students who are singles and want to enroll in MFT. For students with family, this is not a concern for you. Perhaps, TUW tends to favor students (females especially) in this program."

"I am an MBA student at Touro University Worldwide and I am pleased with the curriculum and diverse teaching style. The proactive staff and professors provide excellent assistance in assisting the students reach educational and career goals. The other advantages of attending a not for profit university that is regionally accredited with a low tuition is a plus!"

"Thanks to this program, I was able to receive my degree within 14 months. I took two classes each term and never felt overwhelmed. This program provides great resources and tools to help me learn and reach my full potential. I highly recommend TUW and think it's the best decision I ever made."

"Started the public health online master's program in spring 2017. The professors we're nice and interactive. The format was okay. Alot of postings, discussions and some readings. Then we did big papers at the end. I felt like it wasn't the best format and not very well thought out for online program of it's nature and school affiliation. I was essentially forced to withdraw in the summer of that same year while taking my 5th class as I had just had a baby, my first ever, and was unable to keep up with the accelerated pace of the summer session, understandably. I had dropped one course and enrolled for just 1. After being s****** over with financial aid which I had to do all by myself with no guidance from their financial office who I tried contacting several times but they never felt like helping me. Anyway, I was told I'd lose all my funding if I didn't finish the course and would owe all this money. Of course, I explained to them that I just couldn't do the class but if I took a leave I'd lose my scholarship. So I essentially put minimum effort in. And although I was given very unrealistic time frames and "extended" deadlines for the papers, I just decided failing the course would be better than losing the aid. So I withdrew from that program after that experience and realizing that although this is an online program designed to be flexible, how inflexible the program and staff really are. And they reel you in with this scholarship which is so contingent on everything."

"From start to finish in the application process, I've encountered people such as M.J. and F. P. who were hands on through my process. There were some hiccups along the way, but they were on it and made sure that everything was smooth. I truly appreciate there diligence and efficiency to ensure my enrollment was a success. As a result, my first semester was a success and I passed with flying colors. If their professionalism is indicative to how the remainder of my time will be, I'm in good hands."

"I am presently enrolled the Master's of Educational Psychology program at Touro University Worldwide, and find it to be challenging, and rewarding at the same time. I've had no issues whatsoever regarding the financial aid department. In fact, once I completed my FAFSA, and enrolled; I have only had to concentrate on my studies. At the moment, I am a tenured instructor at a college in Washington state, working roughly 45 hours per week. I wake up a couple hours than I normally would to meet the demands of the curricula. All of my professors are PhDs, and most of them are practicing clinical psychologists. They all do a masterful job motivating students; while holding us responsible for our course work. I really wouldn't have it any other way, as my ongoing education means so much to me. It's really like most things in life; you get out of it what you're willing to contribute. This university is wonderful and I recommend it anyone who's willing to do what is asked of them. It's not for everyone, but if you put in the work, it'll pay dividends in the end. Best of luck to all who reads this unbiased review,"

"This school is all in it for the money ! They havent been helpful with financial aid or anything lack of communication from them is extremely disappointing! I waited for months for help with my financial aid and was not able to register for fall because of their lack of help which resulted in me losing my scholarship with them !!! This was completely their fault !"
