Overall, reviewing a lot of the two stars comments from months prior should tell you a few things - people are complaining about simple tech issues, or one-off problems that they should have just sorted out. With the pandemic frenzy, people are calming their neuroticism by taking it out on the entire system due to an inability to fix one issue or overpay for a class. Broken links? I have not experienced any issues with technology here. They far beat other state schools rushing to get their online... Read More

I have very mixed feelings about SNHU. First, let me begin by explaining that I have attended a private traditional liberal arts college before and then left for awhile. After that brief hiatus from higher education I went to night school at a community college. Finally, I transferred here because I figured the online program seemed reputable, was accredited and would fit my full-time work schedule. The quality of education seems on par with the previous institutions I have attended and I like how... Read More

Southern New Hampshire University ruined my life. I joined because I was told I only needed a few more credits to get a BA, which was what I needed in order to accept a job overseas. I paid for my first class with a grant from a FAFSA, as well as a book voucher. I was told many times by my advisor and their portal website that I owed $0 for the first semester. The English class they put me in was stuff I learned in sixth grade, like how to write a paragraph, how to write an essay, and general topics... Read More

Southern New Hampshire knows what they're doing. I choose them for convenience with an online degree and the amazing tuition prices. There is always someone there to answer any questions you may have; which, believe me, I took advantage of. With online courses, you get teachers and participating students from all over the world, so classes are full of different values, beliefs, and views. You get to experience all the on campus quality from your own home.
I will say, however, that sometimes I felt... Read More

I would tell anyone considering SNHU to think twice. This school has turned into a degree mill. Classes are not set up to help you really learn. If you want to feel like you actually earned your degree I'd look elsewhere. While there are some teachers there that I truly respect and enjoyed learning from, the majority are duds. I felt that most of them couldn't care less. Then there are the teachers who will be unbelievably rude and hostile to you. If you report these teachers chances are the school... Read More

SNHU is the perfect school for working students, parents, people who travel, and for those with less than perfect academic records. I was a traditional undergrad at a state university and I was so disengaged from the core curriculum they force you to take that I aced my majors courses and failed the ones I didnt care about. This is something I know a lot of people struggle with. Its hard to maintain a constant level of motivation in classes that feel like a waste of time and arent stimulating in... Read More

I am a student at Southern New Hampshire University and am currently in my Senior year. I received my Associates in 2015 and went to Manchester to walk for graduation. Studying online can be difficult, it takes commitment and dedication like nothing else imagineable, but I am thankful for SNHU. If it were not for SNHU I would not have been able to get this far. While attending school, I lost my grandmother, my cousin, was in a life changing vehicle accident, had to move half way across country, and... Read More

I cannot endorse SNHU for several reasons, namely because the university seemingly values revenue higher than academic rigor. When I first enrolled, I received a required phone call from an academic counselor whose sole mission was to sell me into the program by telling me how great the school was and how when you get your degree, it does not show if you received it on campus or online. Like Okay? Its not like 96% of students aren't enrolled online or anything. Then, from there on, I received constant,... Read More

Southern New Hampshire University's online degree program was a wonderful experience. My advisor was knowledgeable and always willing to help, and easy to get a hold of. Registering for classes was a breeze, and I love that students can access their program evaluation to see which classes they need to take. The instructors were knowledgeable in their subject areas, most got back to me in 48 hours of sending an email, and the instructions for each class were easy to follow. Classmates were kind and...

I'm in my third term at SNHU so far it's been fine. I agree with what another reviewer said that some of the students seem a little unprepared for the rigors of university-level work, but that was only really apparent in the one 100 level course I had to take (I transferred in 75 credits). My advisors have been great to work with and everything has been smooth sailing so far. No problems at all with the application process, financial aid office, bookstore, registration, etc. I do occasionally feel... Read More

SNHU's financial aid procedures and policies are a joke! I graduated with a 3.5 GPA and yet I can't even apply to grad school because SNHU has a death grip on my transcripts. I graduated, received my diploma, and even ordered a copy of my transcripts. Then over a YEAR later, SNHU decided I owe them $3,000 (which I unequivocally do not), and will not release my transcripts until it's paid in full. This school is attempting to scam me into paying them more money than is owed them, despite having a... Read More

I’m less than two weeks away from graduating with my degree from SNHU. I don't understand some of these negative reviews - I found this to be a fulfilling experience that allowed me to finally get a degree without having to deal with the miserable schedules and commutes I found with my past university experiences. I had two academic advisors during my year and a half (one was promoted to another position). They were both very helpful and prompt with their responses. They’re only as engaged with you...
