Marylhurst University Reviews

This school is very strong in certain programs like music therapy and art therapy, and from what I hear it has good online business classes and grad programs. It's small (under 1,000 students) and diverse in age range, with a lot of 2nd-degree working students in their 30s and up. However, being a small private school it can sometimes be expensive, and resources in the last few years have been cut due to budget constraints.

Academically, you get what you put in - you can skate by with Bs quite easily and pass through, if you want to waste your money.... but that doesn't mean you'll succeed out in your field. But if you put in the time, you can excel and the professors will go to bat for you and help meet your needs when you communicate with them. (Food on campus is great! But only served during very limited hours, hence the 3-star rating.)

My experience with Marylhurst was not much as during my second term there they made a choice to shut their doors after 125 years. The way they handled the situation was highly unprofessional and they had a severe lack of communication with their students and with their staff. That being said as I did not have the chance to do much with my time there, I did get quite a bit of help from them in order to ensure I could transfer elsewhere with a good standing (which was very important for me). It was a great environment to be in and you could even see many animals on the campus during classes, including a beautiful deer that was randomly staring into our biology classes window during our finals. If Marylhurst University was staying open I would not recommend it to other students simply based on the lack of communication, support, and care from the staff to their students.
MU is a private liberal arts university very suitable for adult students. It will carefully consider all previous credits and transfer all possible. Ideal for those with two years of community college looking for a 4-year degree with a flexible, respected institution that offers convenient class hours plus online and hybrid options. Not much on-campus housing but the location is quiet, pretty and full of character.
