I studied at Aspen University during 2005 through 2008. What I like is the application requirements are very strict to qualified candidate; for out side US BSc degree holders to obtain a master degree you need to have 15 years of relative experience. This is very importan to select qualified professional for Aspen University programs. Also the Teachers are all qualified in their fields. Project management courses are taught by PMI-PMP certified teachers and so on.

Do you need professors to hold your hand while you learn and earn your college degree? If so, look elsewhere and pay more. Aspen University is great value for a Masters degree and you can learn as fast AND as much as you want - it is all up to you. I've read the posts in this forum and the common thread for the low-rating posters (other than complaining about fees) is they want professors to hold their hand. Grow-up! This is not high school. Put in the work, get the grades, graduate. Any of the few messages I have sent to my professors over the past several years have been responded to promptly. Course material is real world - I have decades of experience in my field and the subject matter being taught at Aspen can be applied at work today. I highly recommend the online independent format - 8 modules in each 10-week course. No hand holding, no online meetings. Do the work, get the grade. (Strong recommendation - get Perrla(dot)com APA formatting software - it is a big help!!). If you can follow the course directions and read the assigned materials, you will know exactly what is required for an A-grade. I am getting close to graduation and I like what I have learned at Aspen University. I may even go for a second degree in a tangent field depending on my schedule and finances.

I finished MSIT a few years ago when they had tuition for $3K. I never purchased a single text book. Copy-pasted all the Q&A from wikipedia. Got 'A' in all the classes. There was no 'mentor' interaction. Its a self copy-paste program.

Agree with below.....Aspen's Quality is BAD!!

Agree with below remarks....Aspen's quality is decreasing and what they write/state versus deliver are two different things. Their Website & Catalog state the Final Exam is either "a written examination, objective assessment through computer-based testing, or preparation of assigned papers." However, when the time comes to take the Final Exam...your only option is the objective assessment!! Why state the other three, if you are only given one choice?? Plus, all of their course work is essay and case study (written evaluation), yet, they grade your ultimate knowledge via objective assessment, with NO GUIDANCE as to how to prepare for the Ojective Exam....NONE!! No study guide, advice, prepartion, etc. etc....like they give for each of your courses. Aspen's quality for adult students is really going down hill rapidly....even though their price is very very cheap...so is the quality of their educational delivery system. I advice anyone considering an online degree to go somewhere else, where they do what they say!!

This is an excellent University for MS in Information Technology (MSIT) program. I am close to completing my MSIT program from Aspen University. The course structure is well balanced and very effective for learning the intricacies of the subjects covered. Knowledge gaining is on the high order from this program (MSIT). The responses and student services from Aspen University's staff and the faculty is timely and helpful. I strongly recommend to those who inspire and eligible for distance learning.
