SNHU has been such a supportive environment for furthering my education. From updates with my academic advisor to high touch professors, I have not been let down by the flexibility of SNHU. SNHU accepted 90 transfer credits and made it possible for me to actually see the future in completing my BA. The price is not bad at all at $320 per credit. That is comparable to my local state school. Their online programs are phenomenal and I am looking forward to completing my BA and possibly even a master's degree!
Review Southern New Hampshire University
I have been taking online classes for the last year and a half. After being out of school for 25 years, I was a little hesitant on taking online classes. SNHU has been truly there for me. Everyone from advisors to professors to financial aid have all been very helpful and truly want to see their students succeed. It has been a wonderful experience and I have managed to maintain a goal I set for myself which is a high GPA (currently 3.862).
I give SNHU 5 stars and would recommend them to anyone, especially in the work force, to consider SNHU when thinking about returning to school. They are wonderful!
My experience at Southern New Hampshire University has been nothing but great times. It is a great school, they keep you informed and updated constantly on how your doing and if you need any help. I do online classes through this school so sometimes it is not easy to get the help you need but with the way they do things at SNHU it is so easy to get the help I need whenever I need it. Signing up for classes is a breeze, ordering books is always great and teachers are awesome and very helpful!
