Have you ever suffered from “buyer’s remorse?” It’s when you purchase something that you later regret buying. More often than not, it happens to people who didn’t take the time to figure out if a purchase was really what they wanted or needed. For some decisions – a new pair of socks or My Little Pony sheets – it’s not that big of deal if you regret your decision.
But for other choices, like college, you want to be certain that you’ve made the right choice.
There are advantages to choosing Neumont University. Our accelerated program means a bachelor’s degree in just 3 years – you get in, get out, and get paid.

Our Admissions Officers have years of collective experience evaluating and choosing the type of student who will succeed at Neumont. Finding the right fit for them means helping prospective students understand the unique culture and experience at Neumont, so you can make an informed decision about what college is best for you.
We have four tips outlined below to help you determine whether or not any college, not just Neumont University, is right for you.
Know what you want to study. When choosing any university, it helps to know what areas you're most interested in and passionate about. Go to a university where you can study your interests and learn skills to advance your career. Are you passionate about technology? It’s more than a love of gaming – but a fascination with progress. It’s getting a rush from finding and solving a challenging technological problem.
Decide what your ideal experience looks like. If classroom time entrenched in theory and attending weekend football games wearing your school colors are at the top of your list, we know Neumont is not right for you. Successful Neumont students want more than theory. They are motivated and enjoy the challenge of working hard to solve complex problems. Many of our students don't fit the traditional high school mold, and now find themselves surrounded by people who share their passion for being part of the next generation of the tech elite. Neumont is for you if you want a college experience that provides hands-on experience to launch a career in technology.
Visit our campus. One of the best ways to get to know Neumont is to spend some time with us. Freshman Experience (FReX) is a two-day event (March 11-12, 2016 and April 8-9, 2016) that gives accepted students a chance to experience Neumont life. The deadline to register for March FReX is Monday, February 29. The deadline to register for April FReX is Monday, March 28. Accepted students can register to attend FReX here.
Ask for help. Choosing the right university is tough, so ask for help whenever you need it. In addition to speaking to people you trust (family members, mentors and friends), Neumont has staff and resources to help you make the best decision. Our Admissions Officers and Financial Aid Advisors are always happy to help. From Enrollment Agreements to FAFSAs to roommate concerns, your Neumont team is standing by to answer your questions. Call 888-638-6668, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or chat with us online to get the help you need.
Our students know that their future is in technology. They may or may not have previous experience with coding – but when our students visit Neumont, they experience an “ah-ha” moment. A moment that answers the question: Is Neumont the right fit?
