A Degradation of an American College Education
July 27, 2011
I can say with confidence - and can back with plenty of evidence (I am writing a book on this topic) - that National University (NU) represents everything wrong about the for-profit model and the subsequent degradation of the American college education. I recently graduated with a MS in Information System, 3.9 GPA and "Honors" Capstone. In my evaluation of the school (part of the graduation process), I gave failing grades in nearly every category. ... [Read more]

I completed my MA English degree at National a few months ago and I am very pleased with the entire program. The rigor, choice of courses, and the faculty were fantastic. I did not have a flaw in the program. I was worried about the thesis process, but the program has a very supportive process that put me at ease. However, be prepared to work very hard and do a lot of reading and writing. ... [Read more]

Happy online student
September 12, 2009
This is my third course at NU and in case you're wondering this is REAL school. I have two B&M degrees and I have to work much harder in my NU program just to make the grade than I ever had to in my prior schools. Be prepared to do a lot of reading and a lot of writing. Discussions are either once or twice/week depending on a professor and you are required to give ... [Read more]

BA Interdisciplinary Studies
February 18, 2012
I transferred from a California community college and completed my BA Interdisciplinary Studies at National and found my experience to be very good. The courses were very good and my professors (except a couple) were also very qualified in their subject. I found that when I had a question or a concern, my advisor was always available to helpful. Sometimes I thought I was a bother with all of my questions, but the advisor never ... [Read more]

National University - Masters of Arts- English Lit
June 24, 2008
An outstanding program. I expected a diploma mill, but was pleasently surprised to find the professors challenged me in every course. Brick-and-mortor and on-line classes available, I completed mine entirely on-line. Instruction was engaging and insightful. Thesis work was also challenging, however my advisor was very helpful throughout the process. [Read more]

Don't do it!!!!
March 12, 2010
I paid over $5,000 to go to National University and they outsourced my training...it was so bad I quit. They are sneaky, deceitful, and downright awful. The training I got was just way below what standards for a college should be. Then because they outsourced my training I had a heck of a time trying to get help. What they did was WRONG. All just to make a buck. [Read more]
