Degree: Data Analytics

I did a lot of research before choosing USW as my choice for my DBA degree. Of all the things I was looking for they met all the requirements. Going into my third semester I can honestly say they have not only met my expectations but at times have exceeded them. Even with a minor issue I had recently the university staff was helpful and resolved the issue to my satisfaction. Great school so far!!!!!!

Degree: Business Administration

I started the online doctorate program full of optimism and motivation. I talked to several people at the school administration office who assured me this was an interactive program with zoom calls and instructor participation. Well - I was lied to. By week 2 of my first class, I realized this was not the experience I wanted. The instructor was MIA for most of the course. They will respond to emailed questions but these classes are very boring. The focus is on word count and APA vs a challenging/rewarding... Read More

Degree: MBA

The MBA program is solid. They offer no prerequisites and no GMAT or GRE. You just jump right in. They offered the first class free to me (I dont know if that is still the case).

Degree: Counseling

This school was a huge disappointment. First, their mission statement states Christian values and beliefs; however, the material and worldview is extremely secular with a negative view towards Christianity in the three classes that I took. I am in my fourth class now. The professors are very unorganized. The quizzes for 3 of my classes had questions on them that weren't even in the material that was being tested. I contacted the professor and he admitted that they were questions from other chapters... Read More

Degree: School Counseling

This is not a good school to attend...they are very slow about getting things done. When you ask them too,  they want something from you. They expect you to get it done right then. In the financial department, they only have one person working on things that need to be done right away and when she decides to take a vacation, she leave for 2 weeks and no one else is there to help. The attitude of the staff is also terrible...I thought it was an Christian school but it is really not....If you can help... Read More

Degree: Counseling

I had a wonderful educational experience during my time as a student with the University of the Southwest. My professors prepared me quite well for my career.
