    What to do for fun

    There are many virtual clubs you can join.

    Food and Dining

    I eat at home so the food is great.

    Dorm Life

    Not staying at a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    The Onlilne Campus is very fast. Courses are only 5.5 weeks long so assignments come up quickly and are due just as fast.

    Tips for prospective students

    Start enrolling early. While the process is smooth, it can also be overwhelming. It also takes some time to get all the documents in order so that you can start class.

    In three sentences

    I just started CTU Online 3 weeks ago and I am finding it to be a blast. From Admissions to Financial Aid and of course Faculity, they have all been very helpful in my enrollment process. So far, this is turning out to be the best educational choice I have made.

    Great for these types of students

    Online education is great for those that have attention issues being easily distracted as well as the disabled that cannot attend traditional schools because of lack of accommodations.

    Food and Dining

    Online learning does not involve food and dining.

    Dorm Life

    Online learning does not involve dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    This school requires a moderate level of understanding of assignments and computer skills as everything is online. It is expected that students are diligent in work and go above and beyond what is asked of them for the grading they are looking for in their education.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you understand the basics of writing and APA formatting. Make sure you have some level of discipline and understand this is a university and they mean business. No matter the school you attend, make sure you always put in 150% effort.

    In three sentences

    This school is best at online learning and is very detail oriented. Colorado Technical University Online allows me to be disabled and attend school to get to my optimal ability in the workforce. I would recommend this school to anyone.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are on-line groups and learning weminars. Never really participated much - too busy with school and my life.

    Great for these types of students

    Focused. Only those who can persevere will be successful. Organized. Self-motivation is a must. If you crave interaction with human beings, not the place for you. Time management skills a must (I'm still working on that :) ) Deadline oriented.

    Bang for the buck

    I've looked at other 4-year brick and mortar Universities in my state and the prices are comparable per credit hour, but the brick and mortar prices weren't including books and lab fees, which are included in online pricing. Yes, sometimes there are issues with the posting of assignments, but not as often as a posting on here that I read indicated. They have worked out the bugs.

    What to do for fun

    Whatever you do, make sure you get out of the house a little more if you are in the online environment. It helps with the stress.

    Academic Rigor

    I have, for the most part, done well. It is challenging, and I am a good book-learner. Pay particular attention to the assignment wording. If you have questions, ask. I have 3 classes left before I graduate with my BSBA-healthcare management degree. Expect a lot of variation in the chat content from each teacher. I've had good instructors who enjoyed teaching and it showed, and I have had ones who were just doing their time. I have also had teachers leave mid term. They were always replaced by another, but it was disruptive and their role ended up being mostly to grade papers. Bottom line is you get out of it what you put into it. Just be sure to review your due dates from one semester to the next - they could change in sequence if the University so deems appropriate. Keep an eye out for late policy changes too.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have little initiative, don't bother applying. This is a fast paced environment, and keeping up with assignments is necessary. Don't procrastinate. The pain-to-benefit level just isn't worth it. You can still take 1 class at a time and be full time, as long as you are taking a full year worth of classes. Even though they push for the 2 classes at a time, and I did that for a year, it got stressful as I have a job, a house and 2 adult disabled children who need support. Be realistic about what you can handle so you don't end up having to take a class over again. I'm old school, and this new learning style is based on the spiral theory. A lot of theory is introduced and scenarios to work with, but some classes just are not done justice in 5-1/2 weeks unless you already know the material.

    In three sentences

    A nice alternative to brick and mortar. As to anything in life, it has its good points and its not so good points. No education is cheap. Don't expect this one to be either, unless you qualify for grants.

    Clubs and Activities

    Lots of various clubs and activities are offered in their Virtual Commons.

    Great for these types of students

    CTU Online is excellent for those that work full-time, live in areas where a commute to a campus would be too costly or time-consuming, and especially great for stay-at-home parents.

    Bang for the buck

    The cost of the programs is similar to what you'll pay at most 4-year universities, though you'll graduate much sooner with the accelerated studies.

    What to do for fun

    CTU offers clubs and organizations to network with other students, make friends, and learn new things. They also have chats and lectures that you can attend each day, to learn something new, further enhance your skills, and free online tutoring and mentoring are available.

    Academic Rigor

    Each assignment is checked using an application that compares it to various books, websites, and previously submitted papers by other students to verify academic integrity. The courses and learning are at an accelerated pace, but the format allows you to work through it and not feel rushed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Create time for the classes, the same way you would if attending classes on campus. Keep a planner/date book with all of your assignments listed. Stay in contact with your professor and network with peers.

    In three sentences

    CTU is extremely convenient with all classes taken at home, online. The professors are very knowledgable and available for regularly scheduled chat sessions, plus can be contacted at any time with any questions or concerns. The class format is based on how you will use the information in the real world and is more focused on projects and career-based application, versus tests and memorization of concepts & theories.

    Academic Rigor

    Very challenging in the Business Math and Business Accounting classes and your Math Lab contains key information and abilities to help you pass the tests. Look for it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be very thorough when doing your work, make sure that most of the bullet points in the tasks are completed in order to make your points on the rubric. Always check spelling and grammar, and APA formatting is required for everything, citations and references especially. Don't forget to quote your textbook whenever possible.

    In three sentences

    I would rate CTU-Online as an Excellent school. The Advisors have excellent customer service skills. Most of the faculty are excellent instructors.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who are busy with things such as two jobs, teenagers, and school.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for future students is to read all instructions. Listen to all live chats. And allow yourself eight to ten hours for each class per week to succeed with grades in the A category.

    Bang for the buck

    CTU Online really does push one's comfort zone, developes skill, and is all that I was hoping for.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am enjoying Colorado Technical University Online because I am a mother of four; three still at home, although only one is in high school...working two jobs, going to school and feeling success.

    Am learning a lot

    The program is set up to challenge! While I may be comfortable in one class, I am challenged in another! The learning at this school is ALWAYS happening, and you are always pushing yourself a bit further.

    You can read the information on their website when you check out the curriculum and what the school has to offer and as far as i can tell they offer the same security as any other traditional college.

    Greek Life

    I am not sure what this is so I will leave it alone.

    Clubs and Activities

    I do not belong to any clubs or extra curricular activities yet but am looking forward to joining some int he future. I hear they are great and am excited to find out.

    Great for these types of students

    Anyone who wishes to earn a degree from people who care about your education and want to see you succeed I would recommend this college.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I am not a traditional student so this does not apply to me but the interactions I have had with other students on the online campus some do both online and traditional classroom and they love it. It offers more versatility to their home and work life.

    Bang for the buck

    I love Colorado Technical University Online and the students and faculty are great and offer a diverse community to learn from different backgrounds and cultures that I may not get if I were in a traditional classroom setting.

    What to do for fun

    I enjoy life and can work around my schedule to ensure my home life and other activities are not affected.

    Food and Dining

    I eat where I study no worries.

    Dorm Life

    I am able to work on assignments and access archived chats and interactive material 24/7 except when they are performing maintenance on the site. No dorm, I work from the comfort of my own home with less distractions.

    Academic Rigor

    I live at home and use my computer to enter a virtual classroom and have access to all my materials in the form of e-books and online discussion boards and M.U.S.E. materials, and also a live chat session twice a week if I have any questions where the professor discusses the assignment and explains how she or he prefers the work to be done.

    Tips for prospective students

    I have checked out other colleges online but they did not offer a classroom setting like this the classes offered sent me the information on my assignment and there was no interaction with a professor or other classmates. I enjoy Colorado Technical University online because I am able to collaborate with other students and my professor. If I wanted to take a course and mail the information into a professor I never see or interact with I would get a mail order school program.

    In three sentences

    Curriculum is outstanding and matches any other courses from other colleges I researched. Online interactive live chats, discussion boards and email always available and professors answer in a timely manner. Real world scenarios classroom material which help a person understand today's technology and workforce.

    Contrary to popular belief, online schooling is tough. Tough but convenient. I have attended both brick & mortar/ distant learning and more is required with online schooling. Disciplined individuals who are goal oriented will work best in this type of educational atmosphere.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep your eye on the goal and remember failure is not an option! You can achieve what you set out to do.

    Bang for the buck

    Kudos to CTU online where students come first. Various tools have increased the opportunity for learning such as feedback from other students, Live Chats, and critiques from professors.

    Am enjoying being here

    I feel like a kid in a candy store. There is so much to learn in so many different fields. I am loving my education at CTU Online.

    Am learning a lot

    Thus far, I have experienced an incredible education with professors who are a wealth of knowledge in the fields they are actually teaching. Assistance with school or technical problems are a call away with quick results.

    Bang for the buck

    This school is among the most costly for Information Technology programs but quite frankly, the classes required for my degree aren't all particularly helpful. While I understand the value of having a broad educational background, I personally feel that a school like CTU should offer a far more comprehensive range of computer-related courses to their IT students.

    Food and Dining

    You really have to brown bag it or visit a local eatery since the campus is as bare bones as it gets.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to conduct a great deal of research, keep meticulous notes and get accustomed to proper APA style.

    Significant emphasis placed on research and writing skills as well as group projects and class presentations.

Healthcare Information Management degree is WAY more concentrated and will equip you much better for that career field.

    Tips for prospective students

    When considering costs one thing to remember is books; those costs are included in the tuition for Colorado Tech. Sometime the book is an ebook although a good portion are hard copies that will be sent the week before class starts. Great part is that one can do the work anytime of the day; I tend to work after everyone goes to bed. Do not be afraid to ask questions; the only dumb question is the that is unasked.

    Guidance was a pleasure and not high pressure; understood I was exploring all options.

    Academic Rigor

    The programs that are offered at CTU have very interesting classes. However, they are accelerated programs, which means that you are expected to complete an entire course within 5 1/2 weeks. This means that there will be quite a bit of writing, so be prepared for that.

    Tips for prospective students

    I think that if you are considering getting your degree, especially if you are thinking about earning it online, you will find that this school has many good options for you. The financial aid can be confusing, but once you have completed a quarter, you will understand everything perfectly.

    In three sentences

    Colorado Technical University is a wonderful college with alot to offer those who are interested in earning a degree. The tuition is not too expensive in comparison with many online schools. I believe that while they are a for-profit school, they do actually care about their students, which is what I like the most.

    I feel CTU is very current with their academic offerings for the workforce outlook in this economy. The pace is fast and you do not want to procrastinate.

    Tips for prospective students

    The best advice I can give is allow several hours a day for instruction, study, research, and writing. When writing, allow breaks to give your mind a rest, contemplate, revise, and continue.

    This school is pretty expensive. $300+ per credit so most courses cost around $1200 for just one class. But this is within the range of most colleges for their online course.

    What to do for fun

    I live in Littleton so I'm not sure what the locals enjoy.

    Since I don't live in the dorm I don't not deal with Food and Dining either.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in a dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    I take the accelerated course so they fit a lot of material into the 5 1/2 weeks sessions. There are a few assignments I don't feel that I get what I should out of them. And I think they could rearrange the time frame on some in order to better manage the amount of information given, but overall it's good.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Use the course resources; they are well-rounded and offer relative information. 2. Read the instructor notes; each professor has a few differences in their requires and grading rubrics. 3. Be prepared to do a lot of research. Just because this is an online course doesn't mean there is less work.

    In three sentences

    Overall I enjoy attending CTU. There site is easy to navigate and offers an abundance of resources to aid in successfully completing your degree as well as finding a job after. I also like the way they set the classes up for me; it can be difficult to pick the appropriate classes out of a college course book so it is nice that CTU does it for you.

    I was really upset with how little support I got from instructors. It took me weeks to contact some of my instructors about questions I had during class. I attended online, and there is only so much you can do via email to get someone's attention. When classes are only 5 weeks long, you can't afford to spend 3 weeks trying to contact someone.

    Food and Dining

    I attended online and cooked at home. I am a great cook. :)

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared for the fast-paced structure. Procrastinators will probably struggle, because if you don't keep up on your work you can fall behind quickly. There is minimal support from the staff and even in the event of an emergency, they were not willing to give much leeway on assignment deadlines. Also, make sure your schedule is flexible before attending. The live classes are held at strange times and they are the best and sometimes only times to contact your instructors. Some of my classes were at 6:30 am and some at 11pm.

    In three sentences

    The class material itself is good, however CTU doesn't have much support for students. I attended online and the classes are 5 weeks long. It took me 4 weeks to get in touch with my instructor about pertinent issues and I had tried everything from student advising to email and phone calls.

    I highly recommend the Business and Marketing Community, the Positive Parenting Community, and the Life Management Community in the Virtual Commons. These supplemental programs are led by instructors who seem to be very passionate about the topics being discussed.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is a good option if your schedule absolutely doesn't allow you to attend traditional classes. Otherwise, I would caution against attending CTU Online.

    Bang for the buck

    For an online school, CTU is plagued with technical problems that make the learning experience frustrating. The email system frequently doesn't work, and it seems that major website problems occur on a weekly basis, impacting students' ability to turn in papers, instructors' ability to host scheduled chats, etc. etc. I also had issues with the admissions department failing to enroll me in required courses. If I hadn't called to find out why elective had not been replaced with a specific course name, I would never have received my text book, nor been granted access to a required class.

    What to do for fun

    The virtual commons provides some good networking opportunities and supplemental chats on a wide range of subjects. I found many of these to be informative.

    Food and Dining

    This is an online school; there are no meal/dining services.

    Dorm Life

    This is an online school; there are no dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    I am pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a concentration and marketing, and I have been very disappointed so far with the education I have received. While I have had a handful of competent instructors, for the most part it seems the professors place a higher priority on their day jobs than on their teaching responsibilities. Feedback rarely goes beyond good job, and it is difficult to get a response to emails or other communication. Assignments, even when turned in on time, sometimes go weeks without being graded, even though the university requires instructors to grade work within 3 days of the due date. I expected, for the financial commitment, a far more challenging experience. In addition, I expected that instructors teaching in an online-only environment would have a good grasp on the technical requirements of lecturing/presenting online. However, I found this not to be the case. One instructor repeatedly failed to record lectures; another spent an entire hour attempting (unsuccessfully) to demonstrate how to properly format a document according to APA style.

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend saving any and all correspondence with your instructors and advisors. I have had to escalate issues on several occasions because instructors refused to respond to my emails. You'll also want to print your task list and e-books for easy reference. Technical issues often make these essential resources unavailable, sometimes for days or weeks at a time.

    In three sentences

    Great- if all you're interested in is a piece of paper. I'd recommend a traditional school if you want to obtain a quality education. Essentially, I've spent close to $30K to teach myself.

    Do not think this college is easy; quite the contrary begin with the idea that the focus is simply on learning. Not an the curve but, individual progress that is tested by the speed of turning events. Just as quickly as one task starts almost another is beginning. Everything is available, all one has to do is reach out and take the items one needs, leave the rest : like an extensive buffet for course study.

    This university is fairly good but very fast paced. Sometimes it is very difficult to cram all the information into 5 and 1/2 wweks. But you do have several resources for learning. And the instructors are very nice and most of them will work with you.

    Dorm Life

    Academic Rigor

    Usually there are three major assignments due each week, giving you time to do the assignments, provided you do not procrastinate. You have chat sessions twice a week to meet your Instructor and Classmates; a learning session for your next assignment and a chance to ask questions. Faculty is available by phone and email should you need extra help or have something about your assignments to discuss. It is very important that you turn in your assignments on time or your grade will suffer.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always check out the graduation ratio of your school, make sure the classes are flexible. Speak to your school adviser and ask all the questions you can think of. Make sure they can help you with your loans or grants, and be certain you can afford to pay back when you graduate.

    CTU is great for parents or people who are working full time. Also really amazing for someone tying to further their education in a field they already work or trying to change careers.

    Bang for the buck

    The cost of the school itself is comparable to most universities, however with the money you save on gas, lodging, and books it is a great bargain!

    The virtual campus really tries to keep all the students involved. There are lots of clubs to chose from as well as study groups, etc.

    Food and Dining

    I have not had the opportunity to try any of the food at the brick and mortar campus as I live 800 miles away. I cook food at my home.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is pretty great considering your dorm is your own home! One of the perks of online college is not having to move away from your own house.

    Academic Rigor

    Do not assume that these online classes will be easy! So far I have received a lot of homework that is very difficult. On average four 300-600 word essays a week per class.

    Tips for prospective students

    The advising team at CTU is very helpfull, however I would recommend getting all your financial aid paperwork done as fast as possible. If you decide to attend CTU, take the orientations seriously and spend a lot of time prior to class start to lean how to use all the tools the CTU virtual campus has to offer, as it can be tough to navigate at times.

    In three sentences

    Colorado Technical University online is a great option for anyone currently working or that have a family to care for. The option of day or night classes are extremely convenient.

    The online program has many lab and tutorials available. In addition there is a mentoring program where new students can meet up with alumni or students about to graduate. There is also a virtal common area where students can set up profiles and get to know each other.

    Academic Rigor

    There are fast track programs, but students have the option to learn at their own pace. You can take as little as one class at a time. The classes are progressively harder, as wih any college, so more time will need to be dedicated to studying.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for prospective students are to be sure you are ready to take the step and have the time to dedicate to the experience. You must be self disciplined and have the want to further your education. Study the financial aid process and ensure you are well informed.

    In three sentences

    The Colorado Technical University online program is great for anyone who wants to return to school but needs to set their own study times.

Individual Projects can only be read by your instructor. CTU has given me all the tools needed to be successful in pursuing a career.

    Keep a copy of all your papers and be sure to site your references for essays. Much of the time, you will be teaching yourself; so, alot time to teach yourself, write and study. Try to turn in all assignments on time. Sometimes, the electronic submission software is defective; so, try to do your assignments early to allow for the times when the classroom software doesn't work.

    If you are in the older generation this is the place for you; small children or whatever your point is in life this is a great school to attend.

This will enable the student to stay on track and focused on their studies; in order to ensure that the student is maintaining their educational level. I graduated last year with Honors, and it was not easy for me; especially being a single mother and having to provide for me and my son. I became ill during my enrollment at CTU while working on my AA degree. Though it was a difficult path, I was able to have the support of friends and family; but most of the all the determination to not let these obstacles come in the way of my goal to finish school. I stayed focused and determined on my studies and had the satisfaction of graduating on time and with Honors.

    Distance learning isn't right for everyone, but if you're a self motivator, can meet commitments/deadlines and are willing to put in the time and effort to do a good job you'll do well.

    There are also enhancements to the experience such as seminars, resume help and plenty of support resources to help you succeed.

    What to do for fun

    There are clubs and ways to stay in contact with other students via their Virtual Common's page. It's a great way to network too.

    Academic Rigor

    Unlike traditional colleges, there are no tests to pass. Each class requires the discussion board and individual assignment submissions. Some classes have group projects and I believe only one of my classes had me take math tests. Overall, as long as you're disciplined to do your work to standard you'll do well.

    Tips for prospective students

    I highly recommend using this site: knightcite.com. Simply click on APA, choose the type of resource being referenced and fill in the blanks. This site will auto format your citations, so all you have to do is copy and paste into your paper. Life saver!!

    In three sentences

    My work schedule is quite busy, so it's nice to have the flexibility of attending recorded class sessions at the time that works best for me. Each class follows the same format, so once you get the hang of how things work it's just a matter of learning the material. Even though the class is online there are still opportunities to interact with other students via discussion board assignments, virtual commons, clubs, group assignments and email.

    Make sure you have time to attend. Many resources given (e-books) just tell you what needs to be done, but don't tell you everything you need to know.

    It's pretty hard to slip onto CTU without a badge. The security team is really good at keeping the campus safe and for that I am greatful.

    Bang for the buck

    I Feel that I'm getting a great deal on my education, if I wanted to participate in extracuricular activites I can. The best part about attending CTU is that it is something I want to do and it really shines through.

    What to do for fun

    I love the fact that I can get to Garden of the Gods within 10 minutes from leaving the school. If you have a break between classes you can always go up to the park and go for a wonderful hike, the best part is that it's free to check out Garden of the Gods and you can go throughout a big part of the year.

    Colorado Tech University _ Online has impressed me in many ways. I love the fact that they have a live session class twice a week that is not mandatory for you to attend. But I guess in our minds because it is not mandatory we want to be there and try never to miss it. I have went to many other online universities and this is the first one that actually congratulates you when you do a great job. They actually tell you when you are or not doing a great job and send you to labs or set you up with your own personal student advisor to help you along the way and check your work if you need the extra help.

I have been on my computer all day and night looking for a way to pay for my college education. I am disabled and really need funding to help me at this present time. I really would love to achieve my Bachelor's Degree so that I can get a rewarding career in the field of Information Technology. The school has a 20 % retention rate. I guess it is because students never have the finances to complete their studies. This is aweful.

    My best tip for prospective students would be for them to know that they are not alone. There are other class mates who have hectic lives just like you and also that your advisor is always there for you. They keep in constant contact with you throughout each course to make sure you don't fall behind. They truly are there to help you succeed.

    CTU Online suits my schedule the best. One of the best features is that if I am unable to attend the live chat session, I can listen to the archived session as many times as necessary until I fully understand the material.

    Virtual campus can be tricky when it come to technical problems. But the system itself is very agreeable and easy to get use to. Just remember to take the virtual tour and if there is a problem you can always look on the home page for the info you are requiring or call your admissions advisor or student advisor.

    Academic Rigor

    I enjoy the academic program. I was rather leery about attending an online college but this has been quite enjoyable. You have to be a driven person in order to do online college, but if you have the discipline and drive, you can do it. The task list is easy to follow and if you have any questions (even if it's off topic but pertaining to the class) you can ask your professors and they'll answer. A great example of this was a rumor I had heard about meat causing cancer. I had asked my biology professor about this because he's a nutritionist and he explained what all that was about (which is only 10% with a whole lot of other factors included, I'm still eating my bacon).

    Tips for prospective students

    Call financial aid often to make sure your documents are up to date and to ask any questions you have. After you've spoken to a representative and you still feel lost or confused, make sure to call again and speak to a different representative to see if their answers match. Also, tuition is always changing so it might be best to figure out what your degree will cost you and see if financial aid and loans will pay for it, leaving a bit of play room if you don't have the money to pay out of pocket.

    Colorado Technical University - Online has great classes and staff. Everyone seems to be willing to help the best they can but it can be pricey, financial aid and loans sometimes aren't enough. Their financial aid department is full of dim-wits.

    It is an expensive school, but it is one of the few online schools that have regional accreditation. This is important when you finish your degree and start looking for a position in you chosen field. Without proper accreditation, many companies will bypass your resume and move to someone who has an education at a school that meets these standards.

    The course work is geared towards real word situations. If you begin to fall behind, it is very difficult to catch up again because the classes are streamlined into 5.5 week terms.

Although I have heard that online classes tend to be a little bit more demanding, I enjoy the forum and how the class structure is laid out. in the past I have tried the traditional college and found that after 16 weeks of class I lost interest in school. I would encourage anyone who seeking a change from the traditional semesters to 5 to 7 week sessions to try it out. The staff is very helpful and very knowledgeable in every aspect of college success. With so many schools out there to choose from I only regret not trying this school out earlier in life.
