University of West Florida Reviews

27 reviews
I have been taking the online MBA program for about 2 years now and only have one class left! It has been an overall very good experience. I have learned a ton. The pace is pretty quick, you take one class at a time, in a condensed 7-week period. Usually 2 classes per semester: spring, summer, and fall. The UWF student affairs, specific to graduate school, and even specific to the MBA program would call every few weeks to check in and see how I was progressing and inquiring if I needed any assistance. I never really utilized their services but it was fabulous that even as an online student, they would check in on me, by name. The professors were always readily available and responded to emails extremely fast. I was always able to get the help I needed in a very timely fashion for each class. The academic advisors were also available to assist in any way, at almost any time. Very helpful! Overall this program has been painless, considering I’m doing it while working a full-time job.

I have had a great first semester at University of West Florida. Through my college history, I have experienced many different types of teaching styles. I must say that, teachers at this college reach out to help and offer support. I took my first test and did not do so well. The next day, I got a call, not an email, from my teacher asking me how she could help. She gave me some great study tips/suggestions and I did much better on the next test.
If you are looking for a great education, check out University of West Florida.
My experience at UWF has been great, I have been taking classes with the university for 3 semesters, all online.
The first thing I thought was amazing that they give you an Academic advisor that sets up a degree plan for you. Which is great because I don’t have to keep track and worry if I’m taking all the classes that I need to graduate on time.
The other thing that I enjoy is that everytime you call get in contact with someone willing to help you or direct you to someone that can help.
However I have noticed that being an online student that some of the professors are slow to respond (some for 2-3 days even).
However I would still boast about my experience here at UWF to any other Master degree.
