1 College Junior

Overall Experience: Anyone with a Computer Science degree can get a job pretty easily, it doesn't really matter which school you go to. Neumont career services is a joke. It's like one guy that also teaches classes so he's not always available to help students. Employers that come to campus are mostly smaller local companies, not the big tech companies you would expect.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Since they only have one degree, they don't have much variety in classes. Don't expect anything unique.

1 College Junior

Career Services: Career services is lame, it's just one guy and he spends most of his time teaching classes. I guess they figure anyone with a Computer Science degree can get a job, so why spend time trying to help them. They have career week, but most of the companies that come to campus are small local businesses. None of the big tech companies come, which is a bummer.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are really disengaged and seem overworked. Lots of the professors are part-time/temporary teachers that work for Neumont as a side-gig (they already work full time at other bigger schools). Overall, the professors just don't care that much, but I've had a few really good ones.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Anyone that has a Computer Science degree will get a job in today's economy, regardless of what school they attend. Real colleges/universities have better-developed career service departments. At Neumont its just like one guy that helps students look for jobs, but he has to teach classes most of the time so he's never available. What a joke.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: Tech classes I took at my community college were better and harder. The professors at Neumont seem very disengaged with the students and don't seem to care. The facility is small, not enough classrooms.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: Neumont isn't at all what I expected. It's really just a career college for people that couldn't get into a real university. I don't know how they can put "university" in their name and only offer one type of bachelors degree that isn't even recognized by most other schools. Now they're doing cheesy "boot camps" for career-changers. Doesn't feel like a real college.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: Poor instruction by mostly part-time faculty that don't care about the students. When I met with the guy in charge of all the teachers he didn't really listen to my concerns and told me that I just needed to work harder. I really like the project based learning, but the school lacks a lot of hands-on tech gear. Their marketing talks a ton about how immersive the school is with tech, but it really falls short in reality.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Workload is really high and stressfull. I really don't like how much Neumont uses part-time faculty for almost everything. I'm in the Information Systems program and I feel like I learned more at my high school tech program.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I want to transfer to a different school that is less expensive, but my Neumont credits won't transfer to the state college I want to attend. So frustrating! The Neumont student service staff is really nice about it and understand my anger, but they can't do anything about it. It's just the way they designed the school. I wish I knew this ahead of time.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The people in this department are really nice and helpful.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Before coming to the school they really talked up the experience of the faculty. When it came to actually taking classes, most of the instructors are part-time and don't really know how to teach. A few of the full time instructors are super good, but I only got to take them for a few of my classes. The majority of my classes were taught by part-timers that have no connection to the school and they act like they couldn't care less about the students.

Overall Experience: There is a huge demand for developers right now, so there are tons of job opportunities. But I'm pretty sure you would have the same job opportunities if you attend any four year school that has a Computer Science major. I wish I had gone to my local state college and spent a fraction of the money.

Overall Experience: Neumont is great school full of hardworking students, the workload is high but i have we all have a great time. student housing is located near campus and there is always someone there to help you with anything you need. most registration documents are done completely electonicaly and sent through email, no hassle with paperwork

Campus Resources: We don't have any gym or library but we have a ton of student staff and normal staff on hand for tutoring and help almost any hour of the day. We get a free membership to a gym down the street if we live in the tower and their is a public library not too far from here, maybe about 10 ish minutes.

Student Body: The acceptance rate at Neumont is very high, so initially we get a lot of lazy and immature students. However, the intensity of the program quickly reduces the student body to a select group of hard-working, focused, intelligent, and enjoyable group. With that said, my school is still comprised almost entirely of the social group known as "geek".

Career Services: The post-grad service are the biggest thing that makes Neumont so worth the money. In the last few years of graduation, all of the students have had real jobs within six months. On average, the pay is about $62,000 per year, around what somebody who's been in industry for a few years would make. The majority of students have multiple job offers before they even graduate. This is due to the awesome career services. Career services keeps in touch with many companies to stay up to date on what skills they would like in computer science graduates and ensure that we learn those skills throughout our time at school. We also have three "Enterprise Projects", which are essentially unpaid internships required to graduate.

Campus Resources: The campus is a single 11-story building. Compared to most universities, we have limited resources. Specifically, there are no athletic centers, the library is irrelevant, and there are a limited number of things to do on campus. We have "The Commons" which is a large open area on the first floor where students can hang out and play pool. We also have a room called "The Bunker" where students can relax, play Foosball, video games, or something on the student-made arcade machine. However, students at my school don't really have time for any of that anyway. Neumont provides a lot of online resources including software and subscriptions to helpful websites like lynda.com and pluralsight.com. Students are also given subscriptions to the nearby gym if they live in student housing.

Tuition & Financial Aid: First off, in the last eight years the tuition has only been raised once, and that was by $300. There also aren't any unexplained or exorbitant fees. As a for-profit institution, they are exceptionally honest and straightforward. They also do their best to work with students. Also, they will match any outside scholarship for up to $5,000.

Academic Flexibility: The faculty are easy and pleasant to work with, however, due to the nature of the expedited program and the small student body (resulting in only one or one of a specific class at a time) my schedule revolves around class times.

Campus Resources: There are a lot of acitivities offered by the students and by the school (camping, board game nights, movie nights, etc).

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is brutal, 7k for 10 weeks but it is defintely worth it once you graduate and are making on average 63k a year.

Academic Experience: As a computer science major I'm required to complete a lot of homework and a lot of my knowledge has come from outside sources. The workload is huge but there is a great payoff at the end. I often feel not smart enough to be here as there are some insanely smart students. We start programming day one and I think that's a very unique aspect of my school

Academic Experience: They don't offer classes that you need to take too often. Basically if you don't pass it the first time it's a headache to take it the second time as sometimes you have to wait a quarter or two to be able to take it again. Some of the teacher are really rude but most of them are really helpful and all of them want to see you succeed.

Student Body: Not very many females, mostly a lot of geeky kids who don't shower some are obnoxiously smart, some are nice and friendly.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

Two things can be said about Neumont University: As a computer science school, it’s bound to have a stellar network that rarely goes down, and you'll probably find someone with whom to play World of Warcraft. After all, these students are designing games and software, so technology is very much a part of their lives. Plus, if anything were to go wrong with the network, there are tons of students around with the ability to fix the problem. These often self-proclaimed "nerds" make the University an especially conducive school for video gaming, helping each other with related homework, and generally just chilling out. However, occasionally, you will get the social shut-offs who are unreachable. Most of these students will be guys—only because the Neumont population is majorly made up of dudes—nearly 95 percent. Good news for the ladies searching for potential mates but bad news for the men-folk. Plus, another double-edged sword is the fact that it’s a teeny, tiny school with fewer than 300 students, so you are bound to know everyone on campus.

While the cost of the school is pricey, students find it worth the loans and grants, being that job placement is extremely high, with nearly all graduates finding work shortly after their final final exam. In fact, the last three quarters focus on real-world development. Plus, students find the education they receive to be especially beneficial, being that it’s hands-on, with professors who actually have industry experience. One of the only drawbacks is that your schedule can lack some flexibility, being so compressed that your classes are pretty much chosen for you. One thing that isn’t compressed is the University’s location in South Jordan, Utah. Despite being nestled in the Salt Lake Valley, South Jordan has a relatively flat openness to it, which brings peace to students amidst strenuous studying.
