Degree: Business

This college is unhelpful with filing of financial aid. They ask for same info over and over and it has been uploaded about 8 or 9 time. You would think they would be willing to help since financial aid is guaranteed payment to them. What a joke. They don't read info sent in it's entirety

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)

This program is advertised to be suitable for students to continue working full time. What should be advertised is that the school will do next to absolutely nothing to work with your schedule if you continue to work full time. Tests must be taken on specific dates, within specific hours despite everything being online and "asynchronous". There are no online lectures. The professors pull their powerpoints from those provided with the textbook and leave you to do 100% of the learning on your own.... Read More

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)

The most absolute worst program I have ever entered into. The instructors do not teach! The weeks powerpoints are from the book, no actual lesson plan is attached. Then they throw heavily weighted exams every few weeks to destroy your grade. The assignments along the way are pointless but extremely time consuming and end up only counting for 3% of your grade. The clinical course has busy work assignments as well. I WOULD NEVER RECCOMEND THIS PROGRAM TO EVEN MY WORST ENEMY!!! IF I hadn't put so much... Read More

The instructors do not interact in the courses in the FNP program. How is it again that they teach the students? Exams are limited on specific dates in 2-4 hour timeframes through online proctoring during the middle of the day (when you need to work or complete precepting hours). They have connectivity issues with their servers, so plan on getting booted out multiple times during the exams with very slowly connection on timed tests! Their solution, sit closer to the router when taking the test???... Read More

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)

I attended CSU for my MSN/FNP. I had a great experience. I graduated with a 4.0 while working every weekend, obtaining my clinical hours, completing my assignments, being a law enforcement wife, and being a mom to 3 school age children. It was a challenge to maintain a school/work/life balance, but that is to be expected with any full time masters program. I learned a lot and feel that I received a good education for my next step in my career. Instructors were available and helpful. As with the trend... Read More

Honestly, I would not recommend anyone go through this program. The courses are applicable to your teaching development and you learn a lot. Some of the positives are that most of the professors care about the students and they understand that most of the students are working professionals. Unfortunately, your graduation from the program is dependent upon whether you pass a 100 question multiple choice exam with at least an 80. Most of the students in this program are already certified teachers,... Read More

Degree: Nursing

This is a collaborative program with Georgia Southwestern University so anytime you have an issue that needs attention you are given the runaround and no resolve. Could and should be much better. Very poor feedback from instructors. Don't know what books you need until day of class. I had an awful experience.
