I was one of those trapped in the nonsense of this college.I completed 39 credits almost all A, average GPA 3.84. The so called advisers where changed almost every a year and were not interested and unqualified to give any advice.  College is expensive and takes your money thoroughly.  Once I reached comprehensive exams I was with high GPA. They failed me with no apparent
reasons. I left wondering, how one can have such a high GPA and cannot pass exam which is not that much different form the research classes.  I am transferring my credits; hopefully another university can take at least some of them. I have never seen syllabus and course information having so many errors. Please see the attachment below. I hope you see what I see.

I would never suggest anyone to apply to this university. Yes, it is regionally accredited, but I do not believe it should be. I would like to know if anyone is filing class action against them I would join.

Please see below partial course description for comprehensive exams from NCU. Please see author Stam, S, and Hendericus, S. That is the same author listed differently in different places:

Don't Blame Failures on University

AUTHOR: Justin - (United States of America)

People are passing the comprehensive examinations. You didn't pass because you did not have enough mastery of the material to successfully apply the knowledge and answer the comp exam questions. Just because you managed to successfully pass your specialization and research courses, doesn't mean that you will successfully pass your comprehensive examinations. Just try again and take responsibility for your failures.
