Degree: Public Health

DO NOT ENROLL IN THE ONLINE PROGRAM!!! Advising is beyond appalling. GWSPH has vastly overenrolled since 2020 and can't deliver what they advertise online. Impossible to finish in one year, very challenging to finish in two. Not enough spots in required classes. Glorified independent study at best. The recorded lectures from GW faculty are fantastic. Most of the section leaders were great except for two during the entire program (one was almost impossible to understand and the other was rude and... Read More

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)

I chose the program thinking it was highly rated. I did fine in the program, but it is very poorly run. Little to no assistance from instructors. You must find your own clinical sites with no aid or guidance from the school. Program is extremely disorganized and staff cares very little about students. Staff can be degrading in addition to lacking knowledge and insight. Almost all of my classmates regret choosing this school for the FNP program.

Degree: Paralegal

I received a top notch education at GW. The professors were phenomenal and even though the courses were online, the classes are set up to where you feel like you are sitting in a classroom with everyone. This program was very difficult, but definitely worth the journey. I have learned how to look for and find answers to very difficult topics. The professors went out of their way to help the students learn. I definitely feel prepared for a great career in law.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (NP)

While an online program offers flexibility and convenience my experience is that you lose the connectivity and personal attention a traditional program provides. In my experience I felt like I was working alone and when issues arose it was difficult to connect to professors on a human level I instead felt like a "student". I had started my FNP at a different institution where I attended classes and participated in groups and I felt like I was making a much larger impact then at GWU. Trying to solve... Read More

Degree: Human Resources

Loved the campus and worked there as well. The program was a perfect match for my skills and interests - and there were many options for electives. The faculty were well-known in the field. However, not all were great teachers although they were great mentors and very supportive advisors. The focus of the program was laying a theoretical foundation and building practical skills in the field of organization development. From there I was able to practice and go on to build another doctoral program... Read More
