I received received a pell grant to go to the school. They still owe me $5128 out of my Pell grant and a refusing to pay it. They also have class action lawsuits in play for other students that this has happen to them. do not go to the school. They will take federal money and not give it to the students have have earned it.

I have just started at CTU. However, so far my experience has been amazing. I researched for close to a year different colleges, from all over. I would have to guess close to 100 schools. CTU was the ONLY one that took the time to talk to me,explain everything to me. When all others put me off on someone else or simply stated they would send me a email. I am happy I choose CTU and I highly recommend it.

This degree I find hasn’t really helped me with obtaining a Security position. I have to take more Cyber classes placing me more in det. What good is this if I can’t receive position within Security with more classes to take. I looked and looked but employers say I need more education.

Not sure why there are so many complaints about this school. The instruction is great, they use Zybooks and intellipath for most classes. So far, this has been a great school to learn programming as well as basic software engineering concepts. Instructors are professional, many of them with years of experience in the industry, being employers and retirees. With any college, you don’t learn everything inside the classroom. It’s up to you to go outside and learn the things you need to relating to your... Read More

If your undecided they push you oi on to what you were thinking about but not sure. Any way half way through I was talking to a guy I know he was asking about what they were teaching he said by the time you graduate the platform they use Java will be obsolete. He was correct they told you they would help me get a job,. I have yet to use anything they taught so do yourself a favor and find a real college

The school is transfer credit friendly. That's one great thing about them. However, they are extremely expensive and they make you take additional unnecessary courses for money. I do agree this school is all about making money and is very expensive. I would say do your research into looking into another college. I've learned completely nothing. And, just because it is accredited doesn't mean anything. I have 7 years of healthcare management experience. And, needed my degree for promotional opportunities.... Read More

Stay away from this place. They are 100% of degree mill, They also do not have adaptive learning, that is a flat out lie. Their online courses are nothing but a confusing mess, The instruction is Atrocious, All they want is veteran benefits. They will assign you classes you have no business being in, the student success coaches do not care about your education. The material that they present is not useful. This place is only good if you need to check in the block for a position that you're already... Read More

CTU is for profit which factors in to many areas. I've been a student for 2 years now in a doctoral program and 2 things stand out to me. First, the quality of instruction is variable. I've had some good instructors and some that are clearly phoning it in. Similarly, the standards for work between instructors is variable; I had instructors that I'm almost positive never read what I turned in. The second thing is financial services and advising. They're not good. CTU pushes FAFSA and student loans.... Read More

I would not advise ANYONE to attend CTU unless you want to be blindsided with owing the actual school money for stuff that should be cover by your student loans and grants. Instead they will “reimburse” your grants and then charge you for what those grants they reimbursed would’ve covered. I was told when I signed up that everything would be cover and I wouldn’t have to pay out of pocket until I start paying my student loans back after I graduate or stop attending CTU. Now I am being contacted and... Read More

I found the Grant riding class very very useful. I also found the leadership course very useful. I was at the end of my career and used my military benefits to further my career. I wrote several grants that helped a lot of people. I would highly recommend the school to anybody that is wanting to extend their career and help people.

First of all I would like to start by saying I am not sure why this school has so many negative reviews. I have a Bachelor's Degree from a very reputable Science and Engineering based University and the classes here are just as tough as what I have taken there. Like anything else you get out of it what you put into it. If you procrastinate and do not put in enough time to do the research required of the degree programs here at CTU then you will not do well. I have had wonderful Professors and each... Read More

I am set to graduate in September 2022 with an associate's in management. I have to say, I read a lot of these reviews, and I agree with most of them. The associate's degree is extremely easy to obtain. I was able to test out of 8 courses and maintain a 4.0 GPA the entire time. Intelepath, the system used for coursework, is easy to manipulate to always get an A. Copy the lesson in a Word doc and when you answer questions, use the Word doc to search for words. When you miss a question, copy it along... Read More

Degree: Entrepreneurship

I have two more weeks and I will have my MBA with a concentration in entrepreneurship. The work is challenging and I learned a lot of useful information that I plan on applying to my business venture. They are veteran friendly, the online tools are user friendly and the overall experience was a pleasure. This is one of the hardest programs I’ve ever attended but I think it’s well worth it. I’m glad I found CTU when looking for graduate programs.

Fantastic experience. This school is underrated and has received a bad rap due to the law suit against it for misrepresentation of employment potential (which for me is silly). I have been studying online and through the mail for over a decade at three separate institutions. CTU is far and above my best experience. The faculty is highly professional and extremely helpful. Whenever I had an issue, they were always there for me. Indeed, without their support, I would not have finished my degree. As... Read More

I have had many issues and my school has been supportive. I have failed courses and was given a success coach to help me in my studies. The school itself has a family setting. The administration has been very helpful actively. I am grateful for having the opportunity to attend CTU. And if I had to choose another school I would still choose CTU first.

Kinda scummy that If you need a transcript or decide to move schools and you owe money- they will not send your transcripts to your new school until you pay off any or all school fees. You cannot get your diploma until you finish paying off school. Withholding your transcripts means you can't get financial aid at your new school. The first 5 week class you spend over $1,000 on, is about their website and how to use it. Meanwhile, in that 5 weeks you could have been taking a core curriculum class.... Read More

I've got a year and a half left for my undergrad at CTU. The only value it provides (And yes, I literally mean ONLY value) is the piece of paper at the end. Want to make connections? Forget it. Want to learn - literally anything? Learn it yourself. You'll get an easy A by doing work that I've literally scripted out to do automatically. It's a diploma mill. - But I can work 40 hours a week and get my schoolwork done at the same time - and have all the time in the world to learn software engineering... Read More
