Argosy University Online Reviews
This school is expensive but it is also rigorous and prepares you well. I had regular contact (monthly) from my financial adviser and academic adviser. I did get a new financial adviser part way through but it wasn't a big deal and they did just as good a job as the first one. I had regular contact with my classmates and professors during classes. There was a lot required and although most classes did not have quizzes (a couple did) they did have discussion posts, responses, and papers that were required and the papers were generally long. A final paper that is around 15-20 was usually required towards the end of the class which really made you think about the class as a whole. I see a lot of negatively; mostly with either communication issues or financial aid which surprises me because those were both great. I got contact even when it wasn't needed and financial aid was standard; through the DOE. I can see where you may have issues if you you've defaulted in the past with DOE but otherwise the whole process was very standard and comparable to every other college I have attended (this is my doctorate so I have attended 3 other schools previously and all were the exact same process financial aid wise).
Hello Everyone, I have had great times attending Argosy University online for my AA degree. I am continuing for my BS degree this September. I am so great full for everything Argosy University has helped with. I was lost and then started school here and I have changed so much. I have so many professional contacts that I needed to move forward with my career and Argosy helped with that in a huge way. Thank you, Kayla
Great school ! I had such a wonderful experience that I will be entering the Doctoral program. I have no problems to report. I received a harsh grade once for procrastination , and Immediately learned from having to repeat the class. I am proud of myself for working hard to earn my degree. Argosy provided with a great deal of support. I had some tough instructors but I learned a lot. This is not a diploma mill. You will have to earn your degree at this University.
This school financial services is bad. I was told I wouldn't have to pay anything until I either quit school or graduated. I was still attending my classes. Then i receive a letter saying I need to pay or I will have to stop attending their school. They are a joke. Now I owe over 10,000 for attending 6 months. Never again will I send anyone here.
I have been working hard to earn my Bachelor's degree at Argosy. I see so many bad reviews and I do not understand why. Do people find work after they graduate? That's what I want to know. I heard that your degree is useless.. is that true? Or has anyone found a good job after graduating from here?
This school was okay at first but one year later I cannot get any help from anyone ...I email , call, etc and there is never any returns. I have gotten so fed up with this that I quit school. I will never attend Argosy again. Also I would not recommend this school to anyone.
I have read many negative reviews, and I do not believe them. I have obtained my BA, and Masters from this school online, and I have had a GREAT experience. College is suppose to be challenging, and Argosy makes you earn your degree. The people that are complaining seems to me are the people just wants a hand out degree. Yes, I must admit that the classes are a bit pricey, but it's also your choice. I love the school so much that I am starting back for the Doctoral program, so stop hating on Argosy, and get a good EDUCATION.
I was in the process of enrolling into Argosy's Master in Counseling Washington DC program and, after immediate acceptance, decided to do more research about this school with no apparent admission criteria. Got your BA/BS? Congratulations, you've been accepted. Another red flag was inability to review department's faculty and get an idea of who I would be learning from in the next 2 years. Also, the price of "education" was crazy steep. Basically, the only reason I was considering Argosy is because it well aligned with my vocational demands and Master in Counseling program on this particular campus is CACREP accredited, which is pretty much a must for those wanting to seek LPC licensure. So Argosy does have that going for itself, but so do a lot of other non-profit schools at a much cheaper price. Anyways, after thorough research about this school and for-profits in general, I withdrew my application and never looked back. Instead, I am attending a reputable, non-profit, accredited mortar & brick university this fall and don't have to worry if my future employees will question the validity of my degree. I would really encourage everyone to THOROUGHLY RESEARCH FOR-PROFIT SCHOOLS before proceeding. Even with accreditation, I don't think it's worth it. Personally, I really don't want to financially support this awful business that's robbed so many people of their money with nothing to show for it. Either way, best of luck to all. And remember, just do your research and educate yourself.
While every schools has Great and Average Professors I found the teaching quite good! This is an accelerated program and requires tremendous commitment to learn on your own and be prepared for class. I learned from my fellow students as well as reading material and course work. I had two professors I felt had lost their passion for teaching and it showed in their delivery of material. I was able to reach all professors in my blended course work and felt supported by Administration office. I would recommend this school.
Don't waste your time or money here . I just graduated in April, and this school is a joke. The staff is unreachable all the time. It is impossible to reach anyone or get any straight answers from anyone ever. My financial aid advisor never returned my calls and I ended up screwed bc my aid was revoked and I had to reapply half way through because I was never notified. Furthermore, as much as I want to be proud of my degree I feel like it was not challenging. Not even a little bit. And speaking of degrees, no one seems to be able to tell me where mine is and when it will be coming in and it has been 11 weeks since I "graduated". Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.
