I am grateful for technology! I do not have to worry about gas money or paying for parking at Tempe in order to receive the education I know I deserve! Arizona State University Online has been a great expereince!
Tips for prospective students
Schedule, schedule, schedule! If you fall behind even one day, the classes move so fast that you will find yourself struggling to keep up.
Take thorough notes on readings, websites, lectures, and videos! Some professors use ExamGuard and you will be unable to view these things if the professor allows you to use notes. If they don't, then at least you had something to study from!
Speaking of studying, STUDY! You do not have as many assignments as an in-person class, so you need to stay on top of your studying in order to make sure you earn the few points available to you!
Academic Rigor
Studying and planning ahead are essential to success! These classes move fast and they will leave you in the dust without a passing grade if you don't pay attention!
Dorm Life
The best part: YOU CAN LIVE WHEREVER YOU WANT!
Food and Dining
I can eat whenever and wherever I want!
What to do for fun
I wouldn't recommend it, but you can basically do whatever you want. I occasionally have the TV going in the background, check my Facebook, and eat meals during lectures or readings. Sometimes my friends are even over and being weirdos while I am in class.
Great for these types of students
Great for students that LOVE planners. You will fall behind if you do not use a planner!

Arizona State University online is a wonderful and interactive learning environment. All of the teachers have been extremely helpful and involved, not to mention exceptionally kind. I love Arizona State University Online and it has been the best decision in my college career I have made thus far.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you are prepared to work extremely hard. Arizona State University Online is not like other online schools; the standard and quality expected from students at ASU is much higher than any other online school I have attended.
Academic Rigor
ASU Online is extremely rigorous. The amount of reading each week is slightly insane, but the level of learning you take from it is unmatched by other online schools.
Dorm Life
Since I do not live in the dorms, I can't say!
Food and Dining
Food and dining is great with ASU online. You go to your kitchen and eat whatever you want, whenever you want!
What to do for fun
With online classes, you can schedule time to attend lessons and work on your homework whenever!
Bang for the buck
ASU Online is EXPENSIVE, but once again, you are getting a great education and no amount of money can account for that!

Academic Rigor
Same rigor as in class courses.

You can live where ever life takes you.

It is a great school. The online classes are challenging, but very convenient. The faculty all seem very qualified and not to one sided, which is good.
Tips for prospective students
I would recommend doing a transfer program at a community college first. Doing so will save you thousands.
Academic Rigor
The classes are challenging you defiantly need to stay on a scheduled or you will have a hard time keeping up and earning a good grade.
Dorm Life
I gave it five stars because I am sure it is great. I am an online student and I live in CA so I really wouldn't be able to give an accurate rating.
Food and Dining
Again I couldn't really honestly say because I am an online student.
Bang for the buck
Universities are defiantly more expensive than community colleges, but I enjoy the fact that the classes are challenging. The price is well worth the knowledge being obtained.
Great for these types of students
Online is great for full time workers an/or full time parents. I have three kids any I am still able to go to school full time. The flexibility of the online courses makes this possible.

ASU online is a great program that ASU has come out with for the working students/parents/person. It's allows you to get a degree from a credited university while working or doing something else. The process is extremely easy and their guidance will walk thru every step in applying.

Make a good relationship with your counselors.

Same classes as offered on campus in the comfort of your own home
Dorm Life
Online classes only, but may still stay at the dorms if you choose

The degree that is earned does not state that all classes were done online which is a plus!!

Arizona State University Online is an excellent alternative to traditional on-campus programs. It's integrity as an online educational institution is strong, as it is supported by Arizona State University. The instructors and staff at Arizona State seem to be dedicated to your success.
Tips for prospective students
Stay motivated when taking classes, as you do not want to fall behind. Classes move at a fast pace.
Use the resources that are presented to you online and the staff. Counselors and other staff are in contact with you on a routine basis. They will present you with information, tools and strategies to help you succeed.
Academic Rigor
Academically, classes will vary according to the instructor. In one class I took, I was spending up to fifteen hours per week on studying. Including reading, reviews, practice tests, online journals and exams.
Dorm Life
This does not apply to me, as it's fully online.
Food and Dining
As it's an online program and I do not go to Arizona from my home, It's pretty good.
Bang for the buck
As far as what you get, for the dollar you spend... it's a fairly good value for the dollar. Especially in comparison to dealing with the applying the Cal State system. There was a year or more wait just to be able to be admitted to most campuses.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Very budget friendly.
Easy to use online program.
Tips for prospective students
Take advantage of all the resources on ASU online and read everything before applying and after being accepted. Everything is laid out in a very easy to read and understand format.
Academic Rigor
Since the online program is through the actual accredited Arizona State University, you get the same teachers and classes that the students who attend class on campus have.
Bang for the buck
Attending classes online saves you a huge amount! You don't have to factor in room and board at all. All you pay for is tuition for classes and some university fees. It is the same classes for a fraction of the price! Also, out of state students get the in state tuition price!
Great for these types of students
The online program is great for any circumstance. People with families or work full time or both!

The online program is really convenient for people who can't attend university in person. They have so many choices for majors and minors, you can definitely find something you're interested in. They have coaches and advisors helping every step of the way and encouraging you to keep going!
Tips for prospective students
Keep in touch with the advisors. They are super helpful and available to talk any time. Also when you are applying, complete your FAFSA and send transcripts as soon as possible, because that part takes the longest.
Academic Rigor
It's challenging but manageable.
Dorm Life
I'm an online student so I wouldn't know!
Food and Dining
Online student, so I don't know!
What to do for fun
They have all the greek life and clubs, which sound fun. I'm online so I don't know.
Bang for the buck
It's pretty decent for an online program. They charge you the same whether you are resident or non resident of AZ.
Great for these types of students
Anyone!
Greek Life
Online, don't participate.

This is the best school (out of many) that I have attended. Everyone, from admissions to the instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful with all of my needs and concerns. I would HIGHLY recommend this school to others (my kids plan on going in the next few years)!
Tips for prospective students
Ensure that you follow the tips, guidelines and timelines of all your required documents and everything will go smoothly.
Academic Rigor
As an online student who has two kids and works a full time job...it is HARD but manageable!
