I have a doctorate degree in education from Concordia. I really love Concordia actually! I am sad to hear people with bad experiences. I am also sad to hear that the school is closing after 115 years in existence. It sure does put Toys R Us at ease a bit. The only bad experiences I've had were with Blackboard at times. The system didn’t always submit my assignments on time. I have attended several other brick and mortor and Ivy League schools, and have found Concordia University Portland to be very... Read More

Why? Are you going to make changes!

I am willing to place a wager that eventually someone will shut this online program down for good. I attended USC for my Masters and it was an online class that ran smooth. The professors were on time when responding and provided valuable feedback. This university if you can call it that is nothing more than a sham. I received more messages from my lame faculty advisor telling me that he was unavailable than available. He was inconsistent, arrogant and most of all incompetent. There is no real leadership....

Please, please do NOT consider CU for online doctoral programs. They will tell you anything to get you enrolled. I have never experienced a more significant waste of time and money as I have with this school. I am all alone in this endeavor and have received ZERO support throughout the program and was left to figure out everything on my own including how to write and defend a dissertation. Written guidelines provided were my only lifeline which I had to analyze and then figure out how to implement... Read More

People an Concordia University Portland lied to me. Teachers don't respond to emails. They just don't reply if they don't want to. I got the feeling that they thought they were better than everyone else. I also wondered if some of them were doing things they shouldn't be. They seemed so secretive....

I am a current student trying to graduate by 2020. This is an accelerated online doctorate program. You do not realize that and it does not really "hit" you until you enter your dissertation phase. The program is advertised and designed for people who have full-time jobs, have a family life, etc and are too busy to attend a traditional school classroom. However, once you enter your dissertation phase on the 2-3 year of the program, you are expected to deliver large amounts of research and information... Read More

I began the Ed.D. program January 2018. Prior to beginning the process and being accepted, I received nothing but the utmost support and attention. The work is challenging yet manageable. Expectations of the program and from the professors has been explicit and known since the beginning. Anytime that I need to contact the school regarding financial aid, changing of specialization, dropping a course, etc. I have been met with prompt assistance and support. I look forward to continuing in the program... Read More

Degree: Education

The EdD program is horrible. I feel embarrassed to say that I went to this school-- yes, it is that bad! I too was subjected to numerous degree plan changes, changes in degree specialization, vacillation in what is required during different stages of the dissertation, change of dissertation chairs for inadequacy, retaking courses because proper guidance was not specified by instructors or within the syllabi, erroneous accusations by faculty, cancelation of significant defense dates, key leaders demonstrate...

Reviewed: 9/15/2016

Degree: Education

I am a current student in the EdD program and am so disheartened by the lack on student concern at this faith based organization. The teachers are good, but I believe they are all adjunct, so the job is second priority to their full time job. The full time staff (advisors, financial aid, even student services) are unfriendly and not helpful. I have sent emails asking for help and when I do receive responses they are curt and abrasive. It is so discouraging with all of the personal obstacles I have... Read More
