Golden Gate University is an okay college for undergraduate students. I liked their classrooms and the campus. However, once I graduated and entered their graduate program it all went downhill. There is a Professor, Leslie Swanson, she is basically the reason why I left GGU after two years. GGU does not care about their students. They don't care that I was treated unfairly by a Professor. Their disability department did not care to process my disability in a timely manner. GGU put me through a lot of stress during the first two semesters of my Master's program. I've heard a lot of other similar complaints from other students.I hope GGU finally realizes that Leslie Swanson is an unfit Professor. I'm not sure how many emails, bad reviews, and warnings it will take for them to take this horrible person off their staff.(Since they pride themselves on their high veteran student count and make a ton of MONEY from the VA because of them.) What a shame!

I started my first semester this Fall (2019) for online classes, so far so good! Registration is a breeze, the advisors are all great and the online learning system seems very good. All of the student support services are great as well, especially GGU Connect. I even joined an on-campus club, even though I am an online student only. I also signed up for the Student Success Coaching Program, which has been a life saver. I’ve heard this school is great for military personnel as well. They also accept transfer credits from, so that is a big plus. I would definitely recommend.
Golden Gate University is a non-profit university located in downtown San Francisco. I was enrolled as a full-time student. The university is diversified and has many international students. Many classes are held later in the afternoon and in the evening, which is ideal for working professionals who want to go back to school and advance their technical knowledge. There are also many online classes as an option. Many professors have a day time job which brings the practical aspect to the classroom.
