"I’ve been in the Alt-A M.Ed program at West Alabama for a year and was supposed to start my student teaching internship at the start of next semester (Fall ‘21), but have now been forced to delay until Spring ‘22 because the program advisor failed to sign my application (which I submitted over a month before it was due) by the deadline. I have been trying to contact said advisor since I received an email informing me that my signed app was still missing, but all I’ve gotten is an auto-reply saying they are out of the office for the next week. All of this is over a missing signature page... I’ve done everything I was responsible for well ahead of time (passed prerequisite courses, submitted the internship application, registered/paid for courses that coincide with the student teaching field work, etc) and 12 hours before the deadline I’m told my internship will be delayed until next year because of something my advisor failed to complete (which, again, was just signing her name on my app...)."

"I was enrolled in the online Master of Arts in Teaching program and loved the experience at UWA. I liked the small class size, for it was easy to communicate with with peers and faculty. All course faculty had doctorate degrees. My courses were challenging, and faculty were engaged in the course. From admissions to financial aid to the graduation process, staff were professional, efficient, and caring."

"The University of West Alabama is a small college filled with friendly staff and students. If you are interested in Mathematics, History, or Nursing, then the school can provide you with a great education. Everything else is just okay as far as academics go. The sports teams are not that great but do give you a chance to play collegiately."

"Graduated with an Education Specialist Degree (Ed.S.) Most of the classes had the same expectations and caseload, although there were some differences. Most of the instructors were prompt in issuing grades and feedback. Do not purchase books from their book store, Amazon is cheaper. Overall, it was a good experience."

"It was a convenient online degree. It was stressful being watched on camera while taking a test however. I'm not sure that the degree adequately prepared me for the real job I'm in now however."
