Degree: History

Some of the faculty were outstanding, particularly in the beginning of the program, and the subject matter was provocative. That said, I was heartily disappointed. World War II history has been a life-long passion, but much of the program focused upon topics that were only tangentially relevant. Additionally, the curriculum requires that students be comfortable with non-traditional media (e.g. podcasts instead of narrative), which I was totally unprepared for. Furthermore, the workload was substantial... Read More

Degree: Computer Science

I think as others have mentioned, if you're looking to really LEARN stuff, you're probably better off seeking out YouTube videos or Udemy classes. If what you seek is a diploma or certificate, then you can pay $1500 per course and get it if you're willing to work through the poorly written assignments, poorly edited lecture videos, and overly pedantic test questions. I was hoping for something approaching my experience as an in-person undergraduate at a different state school, however these classes... Read More

Degree: Nursing

I am extremely dissatisfied in the ASU nursing program. I hope this review finds students who are interested in this program because the best advice I can give is to spend your money elsewhere. The faculty and management of the program make decisions that are convenient for themselves and do not provide a well rounded experience. For clinical we were stuck on the same floor of the same hospital for 3/4 of our shifts. Scheduling our capstone transition to practice they limited us to staying at the... Read More

Degree: Liberal Arts

A lot of very archaic and cheap courses of low quality for online classes. I've had a terrible experience and am on the verge of changing schools. Go anywhere else where they might value you as a student. I had one math class that had literally over 1,000 errors/typos and issues. When I asked for a refund for that course I was told to suck it up.

This was the email I sent describing my situation, trying to request a partial refund. The school lost my transfer credits and was not helpful at all. And they did not refund me a damn thing! 09/10/2022 To whom it may concern, I am writing to let you know that I have had a horrible experience here at ASU. I took college classes in person at Stark State College here in Ohio from 2005 to 2009 and obtained 2 associates degrees in Mechanical Engineering Technology, and Design Engineering. About 3 or...

Degree: History

Excellent initial instruction. Incisive and historically based under luminaries such as Robert Citano. These first 12 hours are followed deviation into "memory, memorials and monuments," less than compelling "electives" and revisions of papers that were irrelevant the first time they were assigned and remain so thereafter. The second half of the program is supervised by junior professors who lack compassion and substantive ability to motivate. I deeply regret my decision to attend this school.

Degree: Communications

ASU online is a joke. I am currently in the MA in Communication program and there is horrible communication . The professors give very little constructive feedback and the TA’s are useless. I was told this is a go at your own pace degree program that is not true. It’s accelerated and we are doing a full semester’s worth of work in 4-7 weeks depending on the class. I work part time and many other students work full time and/or have families. The structure of the program and professors do not take... Read More

Degree: History

I loved my time at Arizona State online! I transferred in as a Junior (went to college right out of high school, never finished) and finished in four semesters. The quality of education was superb; the curriculum and professors are the same as for on-campus students. ASUOnline is more traditional than some other online programs; expect quizzes, tests, papers, lectures, exams, etc. (although all asynchronous). Most of the classes were organized extremely well for the online format; just be prepared... Read More

Degree: Information Technology

You’ll get a degree, but you probably won’t learn anything. Online “classes” consist of old PowerPoints, poorly formatted quizzes, and grading without actionable feedback. You’ll have to teach yourself whatever it is you want to know with nearly 0 input from instructors. Save your money and hit up WGU instead.

Degree: English

This is a higher education "turn'em and burn'em" scheme. They churn out graduates offering substandard, inconsistent, and, at times, incomprehensible education. The course and loan structure is somewhere between financial entrapment and a bait-and-switch. The whole program is horribly misleading. They talk a good game but fail to deliver. Point out obvious course design flaws... it falls on deaf ears with program administrators that are ready with excuses. Courses with professors consistently ranked... Read More

There is a reason ASU rated Playboy's top party school for so many years. I transfered from Glendale Community College, AZ. My tuition went up 200% and the level of educational experience dropped through the floor. I took several programming courses and the only computers in the classrooms were on the professor's desk. When looking for supplemental study material for my mechanics of materials, I found the PowerPoint slides and lesson plans on another school's website from a course that had been retired...

Degree: Business Administration

If you are going in person, from what I hear from others this can be an amazing school, if it is online, just run. You are not a priority, you are not taught, you are handed a book and basically told good luck. The amount of run around you must perform to get questions answered, with the unrealistic expectations laid out for timelines is ridiculous. Most people online are working and going to school. The school is not set up for that despite their claims of being flexible, unless you are willing... Read More

Degree: Human Services

I received an online Masters Degree from ASU. I do believe that you will most likely have a good experience if you attend in person. However, they treat their online students terribly. I was never able to get a meeting with an advisor because they only make themselves available for students who attend in person. I did not get the experience I was hoping for. They also will not help you with career placement after you graduate

It took me just over a week to familiarize myself enough with the course and program to know that it is wasn't put together as well I needed it to be for the $1500.00 cash I had paid for this course. By then however, the reimbursement time was over by one day per ASU. I love alternative formats and was impressed with the outward structure of ASU's program (modular certificates leading to a Masters) - but the details were sloppy and all over the place. I couldn't shake the feeling that I would be... Read More

If you enjoy radical feminist and strange grading then I recommend attending ASU. My whole outlook of education has changed and I never knew teachers could be scandalous and whatnot. I’m a good student and WELL above average. Please don’t attend this school...Please don’t let your son attend ASU. Please!!! Run!!!

This school is great at one thing and that’s getting you started with your degree. Other than that this school does not accept a lot of transferable classes. They are very disorganized with the curriculum and they spend no time educating you in your classes. I do not recommend this school especially for military.

I went to ASU for one year and left. After being there for one semester, two former students told me that the professors like to haze you the first and second years and by the third year, you’ll love them. Once I heard this, the way they treated me made sense. They would “forget” to invite me to gatherings outside of school or leave me off of emails. One professor told me that they forgot I was a student there (there were only two of us new students in the program.) Also, in my first critique a professor... Read More

I’ve read through the comments and felt compelled to write an accurate review from the perspective of a 28 year old, married with three children, disabled veteran and full time employee. I’ve seen quite a few reviews saying that “the program is not meant for working adults...” I’ll be the first to tell you that it is. If you have the work ethic, you can absolutely achieve a degree. There were times I would have to get up around 4-5AM, before the kids were up, just so I could complete assignments.... Read More

I have enjoyed my time with ASU online. Very challenging as if I was in an actual class. The only thing I disliked is the financial department. Recently I had to do a medical withdrawal due to my wife being diagnosed with cancer. Tho I was approved for the medical withdrawal the finance department still wants me to pay for the entire class I withdrew from. A hold was put onto my account and can not register for any classes until it is paid off. I would understand if I withdrew without an actual good... Read More
