What Students Are Saying

3.19 Average Rating
Very challenging
Angela from Colorado Springs, CO
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.

Highest University With The Greatest Academic
Victoria from Lithonia, GA
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.
Bela from Cleveland, TN
CTU professors have their own policy. Sometimes is strict and others flexible. But, as long as you keep up with reading and assignments, there should no be problems at all.
Francisco from Cathedral City, CA
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.
Sharon from Scottsboro, AL
the programs are fast and require you to devote time to study and activities. if you are not able to devote time everyday for classes than i am not sure you could attend any college. i think the time required is not excessive.
Warren from Silver Springs, NV
colorado technical university is a challenging and rewarding university to begin. expect to say no to family, golf, and many other things we value. many nights turn into mornings working on power points or written papers.
Charlie from Fayetteville, TN
Teachers are very fair with grading. They want us to be able to learn and research the information taught in each course. Teachers expect their students to go above and beyond in order to earn excellent grades.
