"Now to be fair, "you get what you give" has its place. So much of my Rockies' experience is due to my own faults. But... I had the most unprofessional and biased professor of my entire life here. The classes were filled with technical glitches. It took over 2 weeks for my professor to address my concerns with bogus/outdated assignment instructions. I had to consult with Tech. support in order to find a means to turn in an audio file, after zero help from the instructor. The instructor then refused to accept the assignment, even though tech support had insisted that this was the means in which to turn it in. Same professor began to obviously grade harsher after some defiance and criticism.No, I recognize the importance of good attitude and determination... But I would not recommend this instution to anyone."

"I have always known I would finish my education. I looked long and hard before deciding on the school I would complete my degree with. When I found the University of the Rockies, I was thrilled. I was contacted by an advisor who I instantly bonded with.Once enrolled, I was greeted by a group of individuals, all of whom have been as dedicated to my education as I am. Soon after enrollment, I found out my father had lung cancer. My educational advisor not only called me weekly to check in with my studies, she also called to see how my father was progressing. My advisor has been kind, empathetic, and compassionate.I still have a while to go before completion with my doctoral degree but I look forward to reaching my. It is not every day that one has the ability to work towards such a difficult goal and enjoy the trip. Thank you Rockies! You have been a dream come true for me."

"I just started school (about 4 months ago) in one of their online psychology programs and thus far it seems to be a very good school. If you are not intrisically motivated or if you need constant guidance from professors, you shouldn't attend this university. I'm sure the professors could and would accomodate however you probably shouldn't attend any online university if you require that much help. I digress. The curriculum is difficult as is expected, and they LOAD you down with weekly assignments. Ya gotta work for it though, right? All in sll, they are accredited just like a brick and mortar because they are a brick and mortar that also offers an online format."

"I would have to agree with the other poster, University of the Rockies is an awesome school. My experience has been better at this school than any other I have attended. The counselors are great and the 6 week classes are the best thing going. Nobody has six week classes so this is very helpful with a working student. This is a professional Psychology program for professional students. It is not a fly by night school for jokers and it looks like a disgruntled ex-employee is trying to get back at his bosses or something but I haven't heard of anyone who is a student who actually has anything bad to say.I highly recommend this school. Check it out for yourself. It is accrediated just like USC, UCLA, Harvard Yale and the rest of the good schools."

"This school has been the best decision I could have ever made. A school of Profressional Psychology brings such a vast array of profressional students together which was terrific for networking!! The faculty are in the fields they teach, they could relate to the positions I strived for and provided additional insight into possibilities of careers I never knew of. Very profressional enrollment service. Very different than anything I encountered at larger schools. I had an amazing experience, challenging but very happy in my decision."
