Degree: Nurse Practitioner (NP)
Graduation Year: 2014

Overall, my USA experience was very good. I'm sure my complaints would be common to many other most-online MSN programs. The online classes and the format of the online classes were easy to follow, some instructors more organized than others. The degree plan was a very good roadmap for graduation and I followed it to a "T". After graduation, no problem passing both Acute Care and Family boards, thanks to the preparation of USA MSN program. Will this program guide you through to be prepared to pass boards? Yes. Can some nursing programs change? Yes. If you are self-motivated, and a hard worker, you'll do well at USA and it will get you through to your goal of being a nurse practitioner.

USA has in excellent online and on campus program. The program and staff prepare students to past the boards on the first try. I felt more than prepared for the NCLEX. I already had my RN, I was enrolled in BSN ONLINE program this was perfect for me.

Degree: Health Services/Allied Health/Health Sciences, General
Graduation Year: 2017

My college has been an excellent place for both mental and social advancement by providing me with a variety of attainable opportunities. As a high school student, I found myself engaging in a lot of self-doubt-- I did not think that I was capable of earning a scholarship that would make it possible for me to go to an out-of-state college, nor did I feel that I would be able to excel socially in a place where I knew nobody. After being offered a place in the University of South Alabama's early acceptance Doctorate in Physical Therapy program, I knew I could not pass up the opportunity to leave my comfort zone. Within the first week of my undergraduate career at the University of South Alabama, I was pleasantly surprised to find how easily I was able to engage in a variety of academically and socially stimulating activities. I quickly made contacts with many peers and faculty members. The community I experienced in my undergraduate career invoked a confidence in me that I had never felt before. I found myself working multiple jobs, including tutoring and working to integrate new students into the South Alabama community, as well as participating in a research group of graduate level students. The University of South Alabama challenged me to not only integrate myself into campus activities, but also to help other students integrate themselves. Without the confidence I have gained in academic and social endeavors, I would not be successfully earning my Doctorate in Physical Therapy today.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I LOVED USA!!! If you are an involved student, there are so many fun activities for you to get involved with. The on-site gym is amazing, along with the sauna, pool and hot-tub. South offers both online classes and on campus. Everyone is super friendly and the campus is clean. I never had any safety issues, however you do find that on most campuses. South is a great school and I received a great education!

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

This college is nice for students that like a college town. There is not much to do but it does keep you focused on school. The teachers are helpful and there are tutoring options. There is also a transient system called the Jag Trans. It is good to go to the student center for all your needs.

Degree: Geriatric Nurse/Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

As a current student, I submit my impressions after three semesters. This course is designed to be totally online. Many of the faculty are self-important, insulting, and very disorganized. After the first semester, you will come to understand that University of South Alabama (USA) has no teachers. The self-aggrandized faculty at the school seem irritated if you attempt to contact them by phone, and the assignments are a maze of announcements (one afterthought following another & the student is expected to make sense of this puzzle). The rubrics and the syllabus become generalized dogma that they will use against students (do not accept anything the instructor says as true unless it is in writing). If I lived in Alabama, I would file a lawsuit for financial damages because the faculty requested additional work that required out of pocket expenses and then would not make good on the agreement because it was not in writing. My complaint that I did not receive adequate technical support was met with the Department Chairs assertion that quantitatively I had received more than my fair share of digital responses to my issues. If that support was not helpful to me in my specific situation, that is not their problem. If you are absolutely terrific at writing error free papers in APA format, and easily work with many audio, visual formats, then this program can expedite your journey to an MSN or DNP. If you are not perfect in using APA format, major multi-tasking or mind reading...Steer clear of this program, it will crush you, mind and spirit.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2010

Not an impressive alma mater to have, but a decent education. The English department is better than it has any right to be because the job market for academics is so poor right now. South has a lot of talented people.
