Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

The MBA program is solid. They offer no prerequisites and no GMAT or GRE. You just jump right in. They offered the first class free to me (I dont know if that is still the case). They also provided a lap top after I completed 6 hours and it was very nice. The courses are offered on an 8 week schedule (online). Each course is set up very similarly. You have 8 weeks with two assignments each week. One discussion and one written paper or problem sets (finance and accounting). The professors grade the work quickly. One area that I would like to see improvement is that the professors don't interact in the discussion board. You get grading comments about your answer and that is it. Otherwise, I have had good interactions with my classmates. The rigor is appropriate for an MBA. The books are included in the tuition and are linked into the courses. Overall the MBA is a quality program. I recommend it.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2017

Excellent school the professor and staff is very helpful. The classes are very challenging but well worth it. I graduated with two graduates degrees one in law enforcement and corrections and the other one in finance. They are in the process of starting a doctorate of business administration and I can not wait. I highly recommend usw. I am a mustang for life.

Degree: Hospitality Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Great School and Great Staff. I have gained lifelong experiences by learning how to be on my own and networking with friends and other business owners. This is not for everyone though, if you need more guidance then this will appear tough at first. Plus professors are more open to your own ideas than what they would normally believe in.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

This school was a huge disappointment. First, their mission statement states Christian values and beliefs; however, the material and worldview is extremely secular with a negative view towards Christianity in the three classes that I took. I am in my fourth class now. The professors are very unorganized. The quizzes for 3 of my classes had questions on them that weren't even in the material that was being tested. I contacted the professor and he admitted that they were questions from other chapters and asked me to look through the book to see if I could find them. I ended up going on the internet for some. Also, in one class, I would be graded differently for different assignments. It seemed that an assistant may have been helping grade and didn't have the same grading criteria as the professor. I received A's in all my classes, but the time spent was not beneficial to learning and very inconsistent. Because I want a faith based education and want to attend a professional university, I plan to transfer to Liberty University after this class. I do not recommend this school!

Degree: Counselor Education/School Counseling and Guidance Services
Graduation Year: 0000

This is not a good school to attend...they are very slow about getting things done. When you ask them too,  they want something from you. They expect you to get it done right then. In the financial department, they only have one person working on things that need to be done right away and when she decides to take a vacation, she leave for 2 weeks and no one else is there to help. The attitude of the staff is also terrible...I thought it was an Christian school but it is really not....If you can help please decide to look at other schools before you go there.

I had a wonderful educational experience during my time as a student with the University of the Southwest. My professors prepared me quite well for my career.

They are pretty close to just being a diploma mill.

Nothing is learned, little is taught, they will bait and switch courses and costs on you and the staff is completely unprofessional.
