"I transferred into Troy online from the University of North Texas which has close to 40,000 undergrads, and I received better one on one instruction from classes with over 100 students by the professors at UNT than Troy. Troy professors are inaccessible and don't respond to emails very quickly, which can be quite frustrating when that is your only point of contact. I also will graduate later from Troy than I would have my university that I transferred in from because I listened to my advisor and took the classes she told me to take only to find out later that I would need to take a term off because one core class in my degree plan is only offered once a year. When I brought this up to the head of the degree program he asked me why I didn't take the class when it was offered and dismissed the fact that I had been mislead by my advisor whom I told multiple times when I planned on graduating. I transferred to Troy so I could work full time because it was hard to schedule classes around a work schedule at a large school, especially upper division courses. The bright spot at Troy is the financial aid office, they are quick to respond and fix issues. I would not recommend this school to other people, I would rather have more student loan debt in exchange for better instruction and an education with higher earning value."

"I currently attend Troy through online classes. My wife also went to Troy and completed her Bachelors in Criminal Justice while we were stationed in Hawaii. They have been extremely supportive and a majority of my Professors have been more then happy to answer questions when called or emailed. I enjoy the format of the school, all the learning is done through Blackboard. It is a lock step learning as in every week you are given assignments and some classes will not open the assignments up until the week they are expected to be done. I have never had a problem with my financial aid or scheduling classes."

"Troy University has so much to offer students of a variety of different backgrounds. The instructors are very knowledgeable and will not hesitate to give individualized instruction if the need arises. For me, it was truly a home away from home. Since graduating in 2015, I find myself reminiscing on all the good times with friends and colleagues. Troy's small town environment is something that most universities cannot match and that is a huge reason why Troy was and is an amazing university to call home."

"First of all, Troy University does have parking issues, and it is located in a small town, however you know this going in. If you are going to school to get an education then Troy is the place for you, if you are going to party, then this is not the University for you."

"Troy university is a nice campus with friendly instructors that want the best for there students. Troy has a wide variety of majors to suit the needs of many career fields. The dorms and cafeteria are nice and the classes are challenging yet rewarding to help each student learn the most about what they want to be in life."

"The staff and lecturers at Troy University made it possible for me to achieve my dream of achieving my masters' degree in business. As a result, I have bee able to use the skills and knowledge gained while studying at Troy University in my current position as Deputy Executive Director for a top-rated nonprofit organization. The professors were demanding yet fair, and the curriculum was relevant to the real world."

"I used the Troy University distance campuses. This allowed me to work full time and take night and weekend classes to finish my degree. The professors were knowledgeable and had real world experience."

"I obtained my MSHRM in 2011. While there were a few professors that I would not recommend, overall, I was pleased with the quality of the faculty and staff at the Atlanta location. All of my classes were in-person and that worked very well for me and my busy schedule. Honestly, I would not say that the coursework was extremely rigorous, but I did learn quite a bit that I was able to use in my job as an HR Manager/Business Partner. Most of the professors were able to relate very well to the real-world and most of the coursework was relevant to working in the profession. The coursework is more meaningful if you are in an HR role or similar role already. Unfortunately, many of the students were just present in the class, but really could not provide much value to the discussion for lack of knowledge and experience. I am planning on pursuing my MBA at the school soon."

"Moving constantly gave me the opportunity to attend many different colleges. Some were better than others but Troy stood head and shoulders above the rest. At first I attributed it to the fact that I just happened to sign up for classes taught by awesome professors and not to the college itsef. That changed when I became hospitalized in the middle of a term. I was hospitalized for a long time and could not finish my classes. Troy went out of their way to make exceptions to several policies. They saved me thousands of dollars that they were not obligated to do. Both professors and administrators not only checked on me but also my family. When I was ready to go back to school they were very supportive. You expect support from family and friends when you're in crisis but I was stunned by the reaction from my school. The people at Troy will forever hold a special place in my heart."

"My experience with the Troy was great! The staff were very friendly and helpful. There were times that I needed extra assistance with paperwork and they were there to help. Most teachers and staff are there to really see students do well and will help anyone that needs some extra time. Teachers went out of their way to ensure that I received the classes I needed to graduate on time. Great School."

"The online programs are extensive, independent study with deadlines and are not based on correspondence. The professors are all master or doctorate level that are attentive, supportive of learning and professional. I chose Troy do to its vast offerings of programs and the flexibility of online attendance."

"This institution has definitely fallen from its good reputation. I took online and attended the campus in Montgomery. For starters, my advisor, whomever it happened to be for any given semester may or may not have even been around. After seeing I had a different one for the semester, I came to find out he was out of the country THAT SEMESTER! If you need to reach financial aid, admissions, etc can be a shot in the dark. After having a final grade of a 91 for a class listed on Blackboard, it was recorded on my transcript as a D! I reached out to my professor, admissions by calls, emails, and finally taking time off work to go on campus for 3 hours. Although it's showing that I passed, the grade is still....WRONG!!!! Talking to other students and another professor, this university is a pain!"

"Terrible! Terrible! Terrible! It's not worth the money I've forked out! The parking is horrible & they ticket you so much for little things! The campus life SUCKS! the location is horrendous! The faculty/staff are only there for the check, not to assist you? Fees on top of fees! I'm pretty sure a "breathing air" fee is in the works. I wouldn't recommend Troy to ANYONE!"

"The administrations is horrible. They mess up paper work or fail to change things or record things which makes it hard on the student (especially when they say you own them money because they have you listed as part time instead of full time student which cuts into grant money). The student adviser I had was horrible. She never did anything for me and when I had a problem, she had a nasty attitude. Financial aid--I think that is a hoax because they were never available when I needed them. The teachers have the classes set on auto pilot so you rarely get any feedback from them. This means they rely on pre-programmed tests and the answer keys were wrong in every one of those classes. It is a major headache getting your grades corrected, and that messes with your GPA. I have had to go to the dept chairs twice and they were no help. They basically take the teachers side even when you have proof that he or she is wrong. It is really sad. It is the Walmart of colleges. Bad management, bad quality... just bad everything."

"Where to start... First off.. If you just wan to have a degree for sake of being able to say you have a degree, then by all means, attend this college. Basically if you are a music student and do anything worth while for the School of Music, they will try to keep you around. And if you don't want to stay they will immediately f*ck you in the @$$ every way possible. They are the biggest con artists I have ever met, which saying something since I was born and raised in Chicago. From the Administration to the "Professors", this school is just a bunch of overhyped hicks that shoot their mouth off without ever thinking if they can live up to the hype. Which they can't. The Music Industry Degree Coordinator told me 2 years ago at a convention - You know Andy, you have all this knowledge, talent, and skills, we just need to figure out how to market you". This was 3 years after I graduated. This tells me 2 things: 1. He never thought of how to market me before I graduated; 2. He is too f*cking incompetent for his job. If you want to go to a clown college attend the John M . Long School of Music. This degree will do nothing for you unless you desire to stay in a 20 mile radius of Troy."

"The staff is very lax in taking care of things. I stress out more over them not doing their job and getting my paperwork dealt with more than assignments. Several times they have almost cost me my student loan. Some of the teachers have no interaction with the class at all. You are basically on your own. Some teachers who use tests instead of essays, the answer keys are wrong and getting a teacher to correct the grade is almost impossible. You have to complain a lot to a lot of different dept before anyone does anything. I am transferring out because it is just more headache than I have time for or want."
