Degree: Writing

Blackboard sites always have errors. The professors are unkind. They don't have a desire for education, they just keep saying the same thing. It's very unkind to teach the course. I don't know how professors became professors, but I don't think they are qualified. It's a really crappy school.

Degree: Social Work

I enjoyed the classes I took however, the guidance counselor I was assigned was very rude and unprofessional. She didn’t want to guide me in anything. She told me instead of depending on her for answers I should look it up. That is what I was initially doing but someone from the school emailed me and said I was taking the incorrect courses so they sent me her for answers. I asked her if there was anyone else I could talk to. She refused to let me speak to anyone else until I became impatient with... Read More

Degree: Computer Science

Went to the online BS in CS program for a second degree (first is in Biology from Kansas State). The program is super affordable, and while the learning is largely self-study/self-directed, the curriculum is solid. I was able to land an internship at Boeing and got a full time offer for this fall. If you're willing to work at it, and use other learning resources (APress books, YouTube, Kahn Academy) you'll do fine. If you expect your hand to be held, you're in for a rough ride. A lot of my classmates... Read More

Degree: Management

Fort hays University is a Good school but they are Financial office suck they are so slow and They advisor from the General Studies program is waste of time please don't. choose the General studies program because the advisor will not let you take the class that you want to take and please start taking classes and the community college and Registrar's Office is ok but they are very slow.

Degree: Teaching

Great online programs with dedicated instructors. Graduate level courses are not easy, demanding but manageable. Unfortunately, my adviser changed a few times but they were all helpful and reachable. It is definately a cost effective school with a good ROI.

Degree: Liberal Arts

I really enjoyed my time at FHSU. I decided to pursue my education through the virtual school. All of my classes were online. The professors were extremely understanding and the staff was helpful. Best of all, the tuition was extremely affordable. There are many different majors to choose from. I don't regret my time at FHSU, and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a degree online.

Degree: School Counseling

I enjoyed my masters degree experience at Fort Hays State University. My classes mainly took place online, but there were a few classes that required us to meet for a weekend of hands on experience. The way the program is set up allowed students who lived further away to obtain their degree, and gain experience in the classroom with little inconvenience.

Degree: Network Administration

I am graduating with my BS in Information Networking and Telecommunications from FHSU this month. I have worked with five other online schools in my academic career before finding FHSU.

The Faculty and Staff were very helpful and even went out of there way to ensure that I graduated on schedule when there was an issue with a class I needed. As with any school you get what you put in and it depends on the professor.

I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a degree program online... Read More

I was very excited to attend this school. I am a stay at home mother with one more on the way in just a few weeks.

This school made it very hard to attend the school. Getting certain paper work in and no one returning my calls or emails. When I finally did get some one 3 weeks later they had an issue with some paper work but did not try to reach out to me. It was very unfortunate.

after weeks and weeks of battling with them I decided my money was better off somewhere else. If this is the kind of... Read More

I am sure the school itself is fine but I didn't get that far since student services was terrible.
