"This is a great program if you are a busy parent/working and are trying to change careers. Although there could be some improvements the overall program and faculty are effective and the education is affordable. There aren't many opportunities for people who want to become a LMFT in an online format."

"THIS PLACE IS A DIPLOMA MILL! If you actually want to attend a school that cares about it's students and invests in their education look elsewhere. The professors are absentee and the course work only consists of obtuse readings and written discussions about these readings. There are no recorded or written lectures by the professors. 90% of the time the readings are impossible to understand, academic nonsense that will not apply in any way to your future career. I've also experienced, in multiple courses, links provided for assigned readings that were broken. I would contact the professor and nothing would be done. This left me having to conduct independent research on the subject matter in order to answer the discussion thread question. The academic advisement team is an absolute joke that provides outdated, inaccurate information about the needlessly complicated practicum process. In short, there seems to be no one competent steering the ship. If I could do it again, I would absolutely not attend TUW."

"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 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."

"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."
