Northcentral University Reviews

122 reviews
I am in my second year of graduate school at Northcentral University enrolled in an Ed.D program in Educational Leadership. This program has been perfect for an educator who desires to earn a graduate degree but working full-time and traveling an hour to the nearest university was not feasible. Northcentral has been the perfect solution for adults choosing to earn a graduate degree. Their one-on-one program is unique in that it allows direct communication with professors and your own designated support staff to encourage and help you with any issues. It is also fast-tracked for those who have the ability to complete courses in 8-week increments to complete the degrees faster. In all, Northcentral University has been the key to my completing my last educational degree!

The Northcentral University graduate program I am enrolled in has perfectly met my needs. Courses are offered in 8-week fast track increments with a 1-on-1 format with just you and the professor. The courses are online and professors provide all the course resources you need each week. The courses are rigorous and require your dedication in time to complete each week, but it is not impossible. All the resources you need from the library and tutoring are available online. There is no reason one cannot complete this program if they truly desire to!
I'm in love with the social work program at NCU, the course work is engaging and challenging and the professors care about their students success. I always look forward to the next week to dive into new course work! Very enlightening experience so far.
