The financial aid department is incredibly slow at processing refunds due to slow integration systems. It always a process when it comes to anything that the school owes you. They have their hands in the pot too much and like to spoon-feed you your funding as opposed to other schools. My overages have been in my account for two days, Tuesday is a Holiday. Extensive technical problems, they are starting to care less and less about the student experience. Buyer beware!

This institution is extremely over-rated, do not waste your time here. The Professors are ridiculous and the cirriculum is redundant. The Advisors are rarely in the office, just the worst experience for my Bachelor's degree now my MBA. I have decided on Manhattan College, this institution is a joke.

Pros: If you are young and have online class experience it may work for you. Con: If you are older and not really tech savvy this is likely not the program for you! I was sold on this program because I was told there are lectures online that we could watch. The reality is that there isn't a single lecture. I couldn't figure out what was due when and stumbled across assignments by clicking on various screens. -Biggest problem and why I would warn anyone from starting this: The "academic advisors"...

I received a Master's in Accounting and Finance from SNHU with a GPA of 3.97. I learned a lot from the courses I took and it prepared me for getting a job in the field of my interest. The courses are set up like any online environment. You have to do discussion posts. Your posts have to be meaningful to the subject, follow the professor's guidelines, have references and not be really short. The papers also have to be well-researched and written with proper APA style grammar and reference citing.... Read More

As I have reviewed many comments regarding students experience at SNHU, I wanted to provide my experience during the past 3 years. SNHU is a school in which if you dont put in the effort to do the work, then you dont have any reason being in school. I found the school to be very challenging and I learned a lot over the past three years. Most of the teacher I had in both the accounting and taxation part of the program were very good. I only had an issue with one professor, with whom developed the... Read More

SNHU advisors set you up for failure. The advisors and the school do not inform of you deadlines, requirements and expectations. The advisors go out of their way to prevent you from enrolling in classes. Advisor refuses to help students even after an issue he casued. I have had to put in requests for new advisors, to be talk to their supervisors and still do not get the help needed to be able to complete my degree. I am only 2-3 classes away from completing a Masters degree and SNHU is actively preventing... Read More

I am writing this review because potential students need to be informed. I thought I found the perfect school to obtain my Master's in Accounting with Auditing. However, my issue isn't about that, my issue is about the evaluation of prerequisite courses. According to the program, if you have an undergraduate degree in Accounting, courses already taken will be waived. However, what they don't tell you is that these courses, especially the Individual Income Tax course, has to be taken within two years.... Read More

I am at the end of my first semester at attending SNHU. I thought it would be great initially but as the weeks progressed I started to feel otherwise. Also the financial aid office just cannot seem to get it together. I emailed and called them with the information. Of course, you get the automatic email telling you your paperwork will be processed in 3-5 days. Then, they wait an entire week before telling me it couldn't be processed on a Friday afternoon and they are closing. No one could tell me... Read More

Great place to study, competent professors. Learned a lot and if I were to go back for another degree I would certainly consider SNHU.

Beware. The cost accounting class I took had three components: online problems combined with a text; weekly discussion board postings; and a final project that had three mid-semester milestones. This was a graduate class, however, the problems and text were pretty much the same as what I had in my undergraduate class. The discussion boards were based upon articles which often times had incorrect grammar (maybe due to translation), vocabulary that contradicted the text, and publication dates from... Read More

I found this school to be well worth the money. Good classes and the administration was very quick to respond to my questions and concerns. I paid for my own education so I had no concerns with grants and funding. The course work was of high quality and challenging. I would recommend the school to anyone wanting a quality education for a reasonable price.

To start off my review, I want to provide some background: I entered SNHU's program to switch fields, and had already graduated from another master's program with an online degree from a different school. The online learning concept using the Blackboard platform was not new to me. I am consistently a student that earns a 3.7-3.9 in an un-scaled setting regardless of whether it's online or in person. I am not going to get into SNHU's financial services or other support areas: this review is just about... Read More

I'm in Arizona and was enrolled at SNHU Online. I had completed 2 courses with no issues. I paid for the tuition up front and my employer reimbursed me at the end upon evidence of course completion with passing grades. However, when my company announced layoffs, I was unsure if I could be reimbursed if I was no longer employed when I completed the course. So to be safe, I sent my advisor an email within the required withdrawal period explaining my concerns and requested to withdraw from the class... Read More

I loved that I could work on the assignments for each week on my own time! The instructors got an answer back to your questions quickly and many of the instructors led more than 1 course so you didn't have to learn how they grade assignments for every single class.
