Student & Graduate Reviews (99)
I have had nothing but great experiences with Argosy University. The professors I've had have all been more than helpful and genuinely interested in the students success. My admissions advisor was very helpful and very patient with me and all of the questions I had when first selecting the program. The online course layout is easy to navigate and I found the digital library to have a lot of great supplemental materials for my assignments. I had no issues with financial aid (other than the normal anxiety of applying for student loans) and I have had no issues with credits transferring or misinformation. Overall, the program was exactly what I was looking for. I had the flexibility of online courses, with a beautiful campus to access as well, faculty that wanted their students to actually understand the materials (Professor Gornto for Macroeconomics was fantastic), and a program where I felt like I actually obtained an education.
After taking several classes I realized that Argosy University does not fully endorse the idea of a "higher" education. They allow people to talk without any punctuation in their online classes. I actually felt discouraged while taking classes. I wouldn't recommend them to any of my friends or my worst enemy. When you are putting forth effort to ace your class and are forced to respond to your classmates who aren't educated enough to use capitalization, punctuation, or grammar makes you feel like you are paying for something that isn't reputable.
Unlike other reviews I have read, I would recommend this school. As with anything you get out of learning what you put into it. I attended online classes and I believe I actually learned more than in a "brick and mortar" system. The professors were highly involved, kept the class on track, drove us to learn every subject to a greater level, and had a wealth of knowledge in the subject matter for the class being taught. I began my education rather late in life and it was a struggle to get back into a learning environment. So when I decided to go get my Master's I was expecting a much more rigorous curriculum and I was not disappointed. However, at no point did I expect the school to find me a job, open up opportunities, or create greater financial gain. I think those things are up to me; however, what I did expect was to gain the tools to prepare me for the positions I was going to seek after graduation. That expectation was met in my situation and for that I say thank you to the staff and professors at Argosy.
This is the worst decision I ever made. Attending this "school" is the biggest scam in the world. After 20 months of classes (even though I was only supposed to take 16 months until they decided to mess with my schedule) I am now being told that the classes that I had originally had transferred over from my previous school "no longer count" and I am now required to pay and take an additional 3 classes. Also, the change how many credits I've earned. I had originally had 114 out of 120 credits, and after "complaining" that I was scheduled for 9 more classes even though I only needed 2, I am now down to 105 credits. Yeah, that's right. They went in and CHANGED how many credits I earned. Completely ridiculous and I can't believe I have wasted so much time here.
OMG!!!!! These online schools have the dup websites and info, they are located in the same place. South University and Argosy Online are one in the same. They are just making money off of us, Do NOT GO to these SCHOOLS!!!! I repeat Do NOT GO to these SCHOOLS!!!! They cannot guarantee you a job and they don't even help, don't let them tell you they can. They also can't give you employment percents nor leads. They give you access to a Microsoft 365 account and a resume builder and call it career services. Do not think this is the easy route, it may seem that way, but trust me you're losing just going here for any other reason than to give them your money. Oh and don't think this is a way to get a stipend lol because they're getting more than you and you gotta pay what you took plus what they took. It's just not lucrative. Overall this school sucks butt and you will too if you don't heed my warning. I only wish we could put some evidence together to get some justice for their fraudulence.
I love this school. I've received both B.A. and Masters in Human Services and currently in the Doctorate program at Argosy. What I love is the support I receive from my graduate team and the quick feedback whenever I needed answers. The professors are very helpful and provide good classroom materials. Since attending this school I have maintained a 3.90 GPA., and will be graduating with my PhD. in the fall of 2018.
Unfortunately, I'm not happy with How I was enrolled in a class without me confirming the class. I talked to my financial counselor and he was very rude towards me . Most of the great and give good feedback. Be careful, they don't care, and not supportive
I stuck with classes until I graduated with a GPA-3.56 an "A" (miracles do happen) asked to join Sigma Beta Delta honors society. Now, I have a Masters of Science degree in Management and thinking a masters degree will make me more money for my family, The extra $ I earn for having a MS. Degree almost pays the loan payment for achieving my masters degree, almost. I'm in the worst financial situation I've ever been in. The classes were very good, my professor's were very helpful and I enjoyed earning a MS. Degree. I just can't seem to pay for it. Therefore, for me it was a financial waste of effort and my time. Just being honest.
I love this school, from the counselors to the faculty. They are timely and always willing to help. I'm going to graduate this year and jump into the masters program. I've learned so much and the pace is just right. If you need a school willing to work with your hectic schedule, this is it. I'm a full time student and a full time father and it has been and still is perfect for me.
Its like I paid degree money for a certification. The worse decision I ever made in life and boy am i paying for it. I got my degree in Sports Exercise Psychology. I was in my early 20s and maybe i didn't read all the fie print, but why is this degree even an option if you cant qualify for the license. I loved the info, but it sounds like they just come up with degree names that have no direct pay out or association with actual jobs.
