Degree: Computer Science

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

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

I am going to try to be a frank and practical in this review without going on a tangent about each and every little element of the school that I did or did not like. What first needs to be strongly scrutinized is the fact that the courses here are only 5 weeks long in comparison to a standard university's length of 12 weeks--this typically means that students are rushed through the courses while retaining very little valuable information. Realistically, how much do you think you would remember after... Read More

Poor Online Courses (IntelliPath)

Reviewed: 8/1/2016

Degree: Computer Science

IntelliPath is the online software used by CTU. IntelliPath is frustrating and requires many times the hours needed for any given subject due to the wrong answers and required answer entry formats that result in answers being scored as wrong. IntelliPath has been reported many times over many quarters by many students, yet, the incorrect material is not corrected. IntelliPath requires textual entry of material that can be misconstrued such that correct answers are scored wrong. IntelliPath has wrong... Read More

After completing my Associates degree with another university earlier this year, I wanted to look at different universities to try and complete my Bachelor's degree as fast as possible while still learning all the necessities in the programming world. After reviewing CTU's fast track program and career pace courses, it looked like an obvious choice to apply. After several phone calls with admissions I discovered that the online courses required group projects that could not be described, except that... Read More

At first this was a great school, took an English class and the instructor was great, (apparently this school does not use professors, she was a great teacher but no professor). When I took the first math class I was very disappointed. I ended up using YouTube to figure out how to do the math. The instructor stood in front of the class reading the book and could not figure out how to answer the math problem, un-prepared, unprofessional, I did not learn a thing. Not entirely the instructors fault,... Read More

CTU Online has been a positive experience for me so far. I have been enrolled for a total of 1 year and 6 months. After discovering a certain grant that would assist in my education, I transferred to Capella University Online, however, the experience was completely absurd and appalling. I proudly came back to CTU and decided to decline the grant on the contingency of a more conducive educational environment for me. I have "tried" the on campus experience with almost impossible admissions of visiting... Read More
