"I graduated in October and all I can say is that the school was great. Staff were wonderful and all of my teachers except for one were helpful. It was difficult at times but I was able to push through. Some of the textbooks were a little outdated and some assignments were beyond old; however, my professors were always current on information and gave enough information for me to learn all I needed. It will not he for everyone but it is a good school. The 6 week courses worked well for me and I like that classes were back-to-back. They are not APA accredited so that may not be appealing to some."

"I would not recommend this college to anyone! Others have stated it's a scam, which it is. Recruiters tell you anything they think you want to hear. As an older student, I had no background in APA format. When I asked for help in the area, I was instructed to read other articles written in APA and figure it out. I was enrolled in Cultural Diversity with an instructor that had no understanding on my culture; I am from the Appalachian mountains. I felt discriminated against the whole time and expressed this to my counselor. Toward the end of the class, I had a family emergency and called my counselor immediately. I explained the situation and asked if documentation was required; I was told 'no'. Later when I decided to transfer to Liberty University, I was told I needed 'proof' of the medical emergency which was no longer available to me. I was stuck with a bill of over $2,000 which I am stilling trying to pay. It's all about the money folks."

"I graduated in June of 2016. I have yet to receive my diploma. I have called on multiple occasions only to be ignored. I thought posting this review might help. They got a lot of my time and money. All I want is a piece of paper validating my hard work. In addition, my first advisor was amazing, my last advisor was HORRIBLE!"

"Ok, of you're from Illinois, and want an lpc or higher, this degree is worthless. I learned the hard way. If ... you want to learn, it's a good school, and there mediation specialty is good , but in illinois it won't get you a job. I was told by the board, that they wouldn't even consider my degree and either A. Get another masters or B. Get a phd. Unfortunately, I'm too old to accrue any more debt"

"I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COLLEGE TO ANYONE.THEY ARE A RIP OFF.I finished my last class dec 14,2015..I was told I needed to take comprehensive test which I knew about.At that time I didn't have the $300 to pay for it so I waited then dec 31,2015 I was told my gpa was 2.95 so I couldn't take the test until I retook class for $3,000 out of my pocket..a class I passed with a high C.Then it came out that they did away with the test,so they made everyone sign a wavier and get it back to them.I did this and then sent them a email as to what else I needed to do to get my diploma. No response then I was emailed a petition for graduation paper and was told to fill it out and return it. Then I recieved a call saying that I couldn't get my diploma until I retook the class again out of pocket and I had to get a A in it.I spent over 30,000 for the master degree and 18 months doing homework..I HAVE NO DIPLOMA AND THEY WON'T GIVE IT TO ME UNTIL I PAY 3,000 MORE AND RETAKE A CLASS I PASSED ALREADY.THEY CLAIM THERE ARE NO WAIVERS AND PAYING 3,000 OUT OF POCKET TO RETAKE A CLASS THAT I PASSED IS THE ONLY WAY THEY WILL GIVE ME THE DIPLOMA"

"As a student of U of R you will be self motivated. The career set you sign up for will be exceptional. Most books you can get online and easy to read. I found this University's strong points to be their instructors/professors, professional, knowledgeable and available. I found the weak points to be the cost and the communication with the advisors. All in all U of R was a GREAT experience. I am very happy I am an alumni. I would recommend this university to those who are self motivated and are able to get past the cost and improve communication. Good Luck everyone."
