SNHU Online Student Review
Jayden is in her 2nd year at Southern New Hampshire University online, and is working toward a double bachelor degree, one in Fashion Merchandising Management, and one in Business Studies and Marketing.
SNHU Online Experience
Southern New Hampshire University online terms are 8 weeks long. Sometimes there is a break between terms, sometimes you end an 8-week course and start on another one the next day. There are 6 terms per year, so that adds up to 48 weeks of classes, out of the 52 weeks in a year. Tuition for the average undergraduate student is $960 per course, and for active-duty military and spouses is $675 per course. You can take no more than 2 courses per term. So, if you’re a non-military undergraduate student, it will cost you $11,520 per year to attend SNHU online, assuming you take 2 courses per term to finish your degree faster.
Getting Started at Southern New Hampshire University Online
Like any college, you’ll have to get plenty of paperwork in order to apply to SNHU online. Make sure to check to see if any credits you might have from previous a previous college experience will transfer. There is an application process that you can find on SNHU’s website to get started. You’ll also need to fill out a FAFSA if you’re in need of financial aid, plus your last two years of tax documents. Notarization paperwork is also required to double-check your identity, but according to Jayden, it is a pretty quick and easy process.
Online School Experience in General
Jayden had to get used to online school because she’s a “very hands-on learner,” but she also likes the fact that she can go at her own pace. Rather than sitting through a long lecture and trying to take notes in real-time, she can pause the lecture, go back, make sure she’s absorbing all the information, and take her time learning the material. One problem she has with her online experience is the tutoring structure. Since it is an online course, the tutoring is done online as well. So, there is often a delay in response from tutors. Jayden tackles this issue by getting her work done early so that there is plenty of time to work through it with a tutor before a due date.
The Motivation for Online School
Jayden is motivated to wake up every morning and do school work by thinking about her future and her family’s future. She wants to be able to provide for her future family and her husband who is currently working to support her. She also has goals to be on the Dean’s list and/or President’s list at SNHU. Jayden will continue to work hard for her online degree at SNHU.
