Touro University Worldwide Reviews
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 !
