If you are planning on going to graduate school after taking Park University classes online make sure you already have your reference sources! Most of the professors with the online classes will refuse to write you a reference. I even had a professor that claimed I was an amazing student and after making a 104 for my final class grade she refused my request for a reference letter. I also had issues with the social work department. I was going to minor in social work and one of the instructors that were setting up a master’s program at the Missouri campus attempted to pull me into their program suggesting if I moved there I would have a 99.9% chance in getting accepted. I got an A in her class but when I told her I was going to apply to a different university she would not write me a referral letter. I was good for Park's program but once I decided to go somewhere else they threw me overboard. Yeah, I guess I'm still a little upset about it. Most of the instructors are amazing with the online classes and grade fair. I only had one instructor that was unfair with her grading and as the semester went on I discovered she was counting points off for stuff that was not even wrong. After she graded my papers I would have an English tutor look over her grading and it turned out she was counting points off for stuff that was actually correct. I finally sent one of my papers to Park's English lab to have them check my paper before she graded it to tell me what was wrong. They responded that nothing was wrong with the quality of my writing. I then emailed the response I got from the Lab to her along with my paper and I never got another bad grade from my essays. The cost of tuition is extremely high. 2,250 for two classes each sub-term for undergraduate. I am going to graduate school and I will only be paying A little over 4k for 16 hours. The quality of the education is very good with Park University and I feel confident that I learned the skills needed to do well in a master’s program.

Park is an overall amazing school. Some teachers lack, just like every school, and a few of the courses are a little outdated, however, this is the easiest school i have attended and with the best teachers, ive been on the deans list every semester thus far and love this school. Recommend for everyone!

My only college experience has been with the traditional "brick n mortar" institute. Quite frankly, sometimes it was good, other times you got the feeling that once you "paid up," everything went downhill from there. It was time to try something new. I thought on line learning might be for me, and after checking out quite a few institutions on line, (weeding out the diploma mills and the questionable credential "colleges"), I decided on Park. It's accreditation: An independent, private institution, accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Park University on line far exceeeded my expectations! From the initial contact with a counselour, to the instructor, course and materials, all went well. I took only the one course because - quite frankly - I didn't know what to expect. Well, the experience was so good (I felt I learned more in that one course than I did the rest of my time in previous college work), that I'll be back for more. I begin more courses this semester, and I can honestly say to anyone considering an on line college or university to take a good look at Park.
