What Students Are Saying

Easy to follow admissions process. One of the highest rated schools for engineering undergraduates. Classes are challenging, but fair. Instructors are professionals and understand that online classes have to compete with life; jobs, family and other obligations need to be balanced with school. Communication is expected, appreciated and rewarded.
Keith from Clermont, FL
Embry-Riddle gave me the chance to take courses online or later in the evening, which fits my bus schedule. Everything that I've learned is related to real world situations, not just theories. Everyone seems to care about each others success, which means they are more than will to help if help is needed.
Breana from San Diego, CA
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University WorldWide is an outstanding way to get your education online. The online classes are set up to give you an exceptional experience and plenty of attention from your Professors. With multiple versions of classes, they make it easy to fit around your schedule.
Garrett from Ft. Bragg, MN
I respect the university for all of it's hard work in getting students the information to succeed. However, at Embry-Riddle- overtime, you may feel as if you're just a number. The reward though of being an Alumni is gratifying.
Travis from Portland, OR
Embry-Riddle is a University that has the highest technology available to meet my goals of becoming a meteorologist. I currently attend Embry-Riddle University and it has meet all my expectations. I rate this University at the highest.
Rachel from Bassett, VA
From a military member's perspective Embry-Riddle is an excellent choice. Many times an individual must deploy or change shifts during a given semester, at Embry-Riddle instructors normally have prior military experience and are more than willing to work with students. Also, Embry-Riddle routinely deploys instructors to deployed locations which enables students to continue their studies while away from home.
Jay from Fort Walton Beach, FL
Embry Riddle is an amazing university for those that have big goals or are dreaming of becoming one of the best aviators/ engineers the aeronautical universe has to offer. The academics are rigorous, but they prepare you for an even more rigorous world so that when you get your degree and get out to find a job an aviation company will know your ready to handle what they can throw at you. The best part about Riddle I believe is the intellectual stimulus along with the fun that you get throughout your years here.
James from Bangor, PA
The worlds most respected and foremost academic leader in the aviation industry. Widest selection of aviation majors of any university. All instructors are required to have aviation speciality backgrounds, they teach more experience than books!
Jeffrey from Great Falls, MT
I am currently in the Professional Aeronautics degree plan with Embry Riddle Worldwide. Although I plan to change my degree plan to Aerospace Engineering which is not offered online, I am glad that this great school has the Worldwide and Online program. It gives students, like myself, who aspire to do big things an opportunity to get their foot in the door of Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.
