Southern New Hampshire University Reviews
Also, the online format is very convenient for anyone working or trying to balance a busy life with going back to school. You take, typically, 1-2 accelerated classes over about 8 weeks. I prefer this, as it allows you to focus on a couple of classes, more intensely, which works better for my learning style. This means you still attend college for a standard amount of time, if you take 2 classes, but it is broken down a bit.
Overall, I really enjoy the convenience of attending SNHU online, while also getting a quality education.
What I wasn't a fan of, personally, was the policy that students had to essentially prove their academic abilities before they were allowed to take 3 classes per term. As someone who was trying to finish my degree as soon as possible, this did not appeal to me because it threw a wrench into my plan.
