BA - October 16, 2015
Had a half load of classes. Took the first year of classes no problems passing every class. Then my counselor enrolled me into an English class I already took. I tried to drop the class before the 2 week period was up and was told it was a couple day processes. Called back after a 3 days, the last day of the 2 week period, and was told it was too late to drop the class.
MBA-General - February 19, 2015
Up until now I questioned my decision attend JIU. JIU told me that they in my last semester since I am only takig one course that they wont order my financial aide until the 8th week and that I wont receive all of the funds until after I graduate per the federal student aide department. If this is happening to you please comment. They are not follow some rules or something.

Elementary Curriculum,Instruction,and Assessment w/Licensure - April 22, 2014
I have had many issues with JIU and with a lot of hard work (on my part) and time I was able to get some type of help. It was often that the help I needed was not useful I did continue with my Second Masters In Elementary Education. I do agree with comments made about student support services, financial aid, however my issue is more in depth. If you noticed I stated second Masters so does this make me any smarter than any of you? Well it should have but it didn't! I should have checked this college out better than what I did, meaning I am disabled and have had several life changing events while attending school The latest being surgery on eye, which left a huge cataract. I was in the flood where I had over 5 feet of water in my home. I lost school work and pretty much everything else. I asked JIU to honor a leave of absence for medical reasons and was told no. I had to fight, I mean fight with JIU to give me an involuntary leave which messed up my financial aid. I explained to them that I would need another eye surgery to correct the last one and that I had to have another hip surgery (by the way which will be worse than the first)because the hip I was given is being recalled. I fall and am in pain 24/7 365. This surgery is scheduled for May 20th. I have finished all the classes with a 3.49 GPA and have the 2 student teaching rotations and my certification test left. Did JIU understand any of this, NO! I was told that if I was not back in class by June 1, 2014 I would be KICKED OUT! WOW, I have taken this complaint to the BBB and other agencies because JIU feels that they can treat their students any kind of way and have stated to me several times "I COULD TELL WHOM EVER I WANTED THEY CAN DO WHAT THEY WANT TO DO!" Well I will continue to fight for my education not only because it is the right thing to do, but BECAUSE I WANT TO HELP OUR CHILDREN! Lost and Confused

Pretty Comparable to Most Online Universities
MABC - February 23, 2014
Pretty comparable to most online universities. I have earned two degree and a certificate from three different online universities. Teachers are very responsive, and often use text, phone, and Skype to interact with students. If I would happen to pursue another degree I would not hesitate to enroll again at JIU.

This school needs to be shut down. I feel bad for all the existing students still trying to obtain their degree here. I worked at this place and they would seriously do everyone a favor by shutting down shop. High turn over and you get a different answer to your question depending on who you ask.

thirty grand gone!
MABC - July 26, 2013
I might as well have voted for Obama than expect any respect for a Masters degree from this joke of a school. I have gotten drunk with many of the faculty in the final stages of old age and their golden parachute funded by my federal dollars. I turned in complete garbage for most of my assignments and still managed to graduate with honors.

M.Ed. Educational Administration & Leadership - May 2, 2013
I was only setting up an application for the course, but the pushie admission advisor had me registered. I told her that I was not trying to register yet and she assured me that it was not a registration and only an application. She lied. I am already registered against my will.

Something wrong here
BA - January 1, 2013
My son was called by Jones International University about taking on-line classes which he was thinking about taking in the future. After explaining to the person on the other end of the line that he had just gotten out of the hospital after suffering from a severe case of Infectious encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and was still suffering from memory problems the person on the other end tried to get my son to sign up for classes starting Jan 2013 and to apply for financial aid to pay for the classes. After listening to my son asking "What do I put in this block" time after time I went over to see what he was doing. He was filling out the form to apply for financial aid over the internet on his laptop. Sorry but if a person can not remember what city he lives in, his street address or what his first name is perhaps you should not be having him apply for financial aid. Yes my son is interested in going back to school when he gets better which is why he was trying to get information. Perhaps it would be a good idea to have him fill out the forms when he knows and can understand what he is doing.

M.Ed. Educational Administration & Leadership - October 30, 2012
This is a scam. They offer a four week "no risk". It is bogus. After a week of not being able to log in or access any information I dropped. Everyone told me I dropped in time. Now a debt collector is stating I owe them 1,800$. They are threatening legal action. Meanwhile I have a message on my voicemail of Jones asking me to re-enroll. Scam!

Worst experience ever!! Run do not go to this school it should be shut down!!
MED K-12 Curriculum Instruction and Assessment - October 22, 2012
Let me start off by saying this school is the worst school ever, they lie to you to get you on aboard with a degree only to find out that where I live its not credited. Oh they may say they are fully accredited school where they are but not where I live. I can not use their degree its just a expensive piece of paper. I couldn't even get any help with exams here where I live they told me to go to another state to pass. Hello I live in this state not another state I have a family I am not going to move just because you won't help me pass the exam for a license here. If I would of know all these things I would never have applied, talked to adviser anything. Plus speaking of advisers I never had one adviser they changed advisers like people change their socks. So please if anyone is going to think about this school, DON'T do it, its a waste of time and money, plus stress.
