Degree: Aerospace Engineering

The online classes do not provide adequate learning methods. Every module has meaningless reading and discussion assignments which do not add to learning. Grading is confusing and is not consistent. The tuition is very high and required books are of minimal help.

So far absolutely zero interaction with a professor apart from reading the one announcement at the beginning of the module that tells you to do your assignments. Every week you read something like 5 chapters out of a textbook they don't tell you about until you're already into the module then you write a bunch of essays, which is fine but theirs never any interaction with the instructors. However 15% of your grade is posting canned responses to your classmates work, but again there is absolutely... Read More

Terrible academic advisors. Required to take classes without receiving credit. Poor communication. Lack of care and respect for students. Advisors are not timely. Courses are out of order. No one cares about quality education at this University. Not made for civilian students. Mediocre for military personnel who want to add onto their resumes.

Ever wonder why ERAU grads have little to no school spirit, unlike most other colleges. It’s because the school cares more about their reputation and public statistics than the students currently attending the school. I started school going for a BA in AE (Aerospace Engineering). I have had to retake almost every core class from this school. With instructors expecting you to already know as much as they do they skip over the middle parts and only go over the begging and end of every topics and questions... Read More

Had a great MBA experience at a remote campus location that tailored class schedules around the installations military training schedules. This all took place at a point in time when there was no online learning offered. Took a myriad of theories, information, concepts and lessons learned away from my MBA experience that I was able to apply during my carrier. Would definitely recommend the program to others.

Degree: Communications

I have an academic advisor and a mentor( The mentor is something that the school itself came up with, and that's been very beneficial so far). Overall my courses are pretty informational. The professors really care about what they're teaching, and they make sure that the students are really learning as well.

The majority of counselors give no help with selecting a major or scheduling your classes in an appropriate order. In the Worldwide program (online and classrooms all over the world), these counselors are also the only help with any questions such as dropping classes. In my case, I received an F in a class that I needed to drop because the counselor told me it was my instructors job to deal with that. By the time the emails back and forth were all done and she did her job to help me, it was past... Read More

Not sure why there are these horrible reviews. I initially graduated from ERAU in 1989 and received a Bachelor's Degree in Aviation Business. I am now attending virtually through the Worldwide Online campus. Both experiences have been great! I have worked successfully for a Fortune 500 aviation company for the past 25 years. ERAU is highly respected in the industry and will definitely help you within the field of aviation. I have been working on my Master's Degree in Management for over a year now... Read More

Embry-Riddle is a scam college. First off, if you want to be a pilot, you are instructed on what is needed to accomplish that. It turns out that in order to be a pilot, you only need to know how to fly a plane. Does the staff at Embry-Riddle tell you that? Nope! They set you up with a bachelors degree in Aeronautical Science which you do not need! The flight lessons which you do need will cost about $100,000, and the Aeronautical Science degree will cost you another $100,000, and you DONT need the... Read More

Absolute worst experience. Arrogant teachers. Basically, “read this book and then do a huge assignment that takes you over 20 hours based on no instruction”. If you are concerned with your GPA do not touch this school. Everyone gives you the same canned response or tells you to talk to someone else. Every single course is completely different than the last. It seems there’s no oversight on the content designers. A lot of gotcha type methods. The focus is more on trucking you into an incorrect response... Read More

Degree: MSW

Be aware that they stamp your diploma and transcripts to note that you didnt attend main campus. Go to a school that doesn't discriminate against their own students. Your transcripts and diploma are not considered the same as Daytona or Prescott. Ask them if worldwide grads are treated the same as Daytona grads by employers and schools. They even have separate graduation. Worldwide students are segregated from Daytona and Prescott...just ask your enrollment advisor, then find a non discriminating... Read More

Oh man, this school is number one s***** school I ever had. Their admission process is tremendous slow, University student take care about complicated admission process. They actually don't know what they are doing. Its ranking will drop again on us news and reports.

Degree: Engineering

I was enrolled in the online Engineering degree program through Worldwide. As others have written in their reviews, the classes are short and leave little room to withdraw and requesting an incomplete is near impossible even though it is allowed. The instructors are merely facilitators who, just like most students, only complete the minimum requirements. I complained about course material in the ENGR 101 course and the instructor replied with the course material is not his. Not once did any instructor... Read More

Academic advisors are good, but instructor(s) are mediocre at best. No consistency in requirements, no one knows what's going on, and nothing really gets fixed. For example, the McGraw Hill (Connect) program that interfaces with Canvas is riddled with bugs (in my experience) and assignments that were completed in Connect and graded will mysteriously disappear. You have to call tech support at McGraw Hill to try to get it resolved, because the instructor who is supposed to help will not return emails.... Read More

This program is for folks just wanting a degree. The courses are very easy but to try to get credit through work experience (30 Years) its a joke. I could teach these classes and they simply want my money. NO chance of waivers. They give every excuse in the book as to why the class is better than work experience. I DO NOT recommend anyone to attend this degree mill if you are serious about aviation. The online discussion boards are full of nothing to learn from. I went in hoping to get something...

Degree: Systems Engineering

Masters programs at ERAU worldwide are run of the degree mill. You have only a few days to drop any class once enrolled, which is not enough time to gauge the class and the instructor; and if you have and prove a life event, expect the advisors prioritize profits over your wellbeing (you will absolutely not get your money back, under any circumstance). The higher level classes are enjoyable but teach you nothing you wouldn't learn in industry; insofar as a masters piece of paper makes you look good,... Read More

The program was very accommodating to people that still have to work, but still want to pursue a degree. The best part about the school is that you can acquire a degree of your choice in a shortened time period. I would recommend this school to other people. The classes were also challenging and I was able to apply what I had learned to my current job.

As a result of my studies at Embry-Riddle Aeronautic University (ERAU), I invented an Aviation Safety System and definitely prepared me for my future career. Many other universities offer only a piece of paper on graduation and not the skills needed to enter the job market.

Embry-Riddle offered challenging and enriching course curriculum that stimulated my mind, and kept me very busy during each class. However, the flexibility that online classes afforded me was the ability to spend more time with my family while I was able to self-pace many of my classes. As an air traffic controller in the military, I was able to apply my knowledge of aeronautics to my job, and also learn an incredible amount about the legal, social, and environmental influences on the aviation industry....
