Colorado State University Reviews:

Diploma mill setting - They only care about MONEY

I graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. This online setting is basically a diploma mill as you learn everything by yourself but are required to pay thousands of dollars so that you can have some online teacher in some random state "grade your papers." The teachers were all about the same - they would answer your questions as simply as possible without any engagement. I am not sure they even read half my papers because I would get 100 percent on papers that I know were less than stellar. While it is nice that it made it easy I think that is also the stigma that is given to online schools as no interviewer for any job has been remotely impressed with the "Global Campus" aspect of this school. I try to not bring up the online aspect but upon request of my transcripts it is perfectly clear. To be fair, I am sure all online schools have this same issue, however I wish I would have spent the money that I will be paying back for the next 20 years else wear. One other point- unless you are already on the start of a career path with some experience than this program is not for you, hiring managers DO NOT CARE about your degree you will be so proud of they want to know what EXPERIENCE you have in addition - there are thousands of applicants for the same job but the only difference is experience.

Good school for the money!

This school is great for the money. The online format and grading system requires students to participate and think critically to be successful. I find this more valuable than regurgitating information on exams. As mentioned by another reviewer, this school is heavy on writing and critical thinking, not such much on analytics or math. The 8 week rolling semesters allows new students to easy enroll at any time.
