Concordia University Chicago Reviews
I am an online student in the doctoral program in Leadership , so I can’t make any recommendations on the physical location at CUC, but I am really enjoying the program thus far. I have had several excellent instructors and online learning experiences and have been academically challenged far more than I had anticipated, in a fun way! The coursework has been as challenging as I had hoped for and all the classroom experiences have been worth the investment.
I am an online student in the doctoral program for Health and Human Performance, so cannot make any recommendations on the physical location at CUC, but I am really enjoying the program thus far. In my first year I have had several excellent instructors and online learning experiences and have been academically challenged far more than I had anticipated, in a fun way! Although not all coursework has been as difficult or academically expansive as I had hoped for, the majority of classroom experiences have been worth the investment.
The financial aid department is very frustrating and inefficient, which is a major downside as the school is not exactly "cheap." Other than that, the school is average. The high point is the student body, there are people from many walks of life, and most everyone is friendly!
