Independence University Reviews:

Don't enroll if you can't be proactive

For starters, Independence University is an online college that has facilities at Stevens-Henager college. Think of it as a tenant in an apartment situation. If you want an easy time in college, then a degree isn't for you. IU requires four check-ins a week and a completed grade of 80 or higher your first week, and a 75 or higher your first month (module). If you are a med student, You. Are. In. Charge. Of. Finding. Your. Own. Clinic. For. Your. Externship. They can put you on a waitlist but you are expected to find your own and are required to make the effort to get on with their team. Mommy Independence isn't going to do all the work, it's up to you to get certified in CPR, First Aid, and AED before your externship. My advice, if you want an all-included college where you just show up go to community college. If you want to shut up, sit down, and work your ass off to be the best you can be you'll make the right choice in Independence.

I have found several sites for my clinical site and this school drags their damn feet!!!!!!! I can't understand how 5 different hospitals get the clinical contract then all of a sudden don't want me to do my clinical there. I have had the experience where they also NEVER SENT A DAMN THING where at the same time I have IU's rep telling me "oh they seemed very interested in a student"!!!! I have been waiting months on end and they never send an update or anything. If you want to be seriously disappointed then go ahead and WASTE YOUR TIME!
