Glad that I completed my degree at CSU. The courses and the faculty were great. I am much better prepared for my professional career thanks to CSU. The skills that I improved on by attending CSU included research, writing and learning about current advancements in the field of Occupational Safety and Health.

First off, I'm not here to put down CSU. There were a lot of good things that came from my time here. For example, they allowed me to be the first in my family to get a degree higher then an A.S. They also gave me credits that I just by chance were able to transfer to a good grad school. However, there are too many negatives to count so I'll just hit a few of the biggest. First, they are a for-profit university and they are not regionally accredited. I'll put it this way, when an interviewer sees... Read More

This school will not support you or help you. They will hit you with rules and regs that benefit them only. Much better and cheaper schools out there. Look to a real school for an online program. My experience is from a working person who has life issues due to the pandemic. Absolutely no support from staff, but they all say they are there to help you, so far, everything goes through the board and people on the phone can do nothing for you but forward your call to VM.

I’ve completed both my associates and bachelor’s in Occupational Safety and Health with Columbia Southern University (CSU). CSU’s Occupational Safety and Health program is recognized by both the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) and the Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM). Both of these agencies are the credentialing authorities for Safety Practitioners and CSU is the only nationally accredited institute recognized by BCSP for having a Qualified Academic Program (QAP)....

I earned my Bachelor's of Science this year and one reason I chose this school is because they are accredited with the Board of Certified Safety Professionals. One reviewer gave a one star rating because he said the school manufactured reviews. I can assure you that I am not affiliated with the staff of the school besides being a student. You have to earn your grades and yes I did realize that some instructors were stricter than others. I gave 4 stars because of some technical problems I've had with... Read More

This college is more worried about their politics than they are about helping you succeed. It's really unfortunate. You will read other reviews on her that are 5 stars but anyone I've spoken with has the same feelings as I do. I suspect the other comments are staged by their faculty...?

When I decided to return to school to finish my B.S., I wanted an online school that offered a degree in occupational safety and health. I did not want a generic business degree. CSU fit the bill perfectly. The classes were structured to fit a person who works full time plus off work commitments. The staff and professors are great, and will work with you to assist you. Every one I worked with, from the Outreach Representative, to my Counselor, to all of my professors were very knowledgeable, and... Read More
