I had previous experience with two other colleges, and I was less than impressed with them. I spoke, on several occasions, with financial aid, and student services, before enrolling with Bryant & Stratton. I am so glad that I chose this college. I have recently read some of the reviews about Bryant & Stratton. I am not sure which location the other people delt with, but I went through Orchard Park, NY. I have nothing but good things to say about all staff and experiences. I received encouragement every step of the way. The instructors were professional and took care of any student that needed help, even to the point of giving personal numbers so that students could contact them for extra help. I got great feedback on all assignments and the structure of online learning worked great with my schedule. I will be graduating in three weeks from this school Summa Cum Laude. I would not have been able to do that without the great staff at Bryant & Stratton.

Go to a real college. Your credits will not transfer! The instructors lack the knowledge to educate sudents. Instructor messed up final by implementing incorrect answers.

I didn't even graduate from this school and I owe $16,000. I believe some of that is because financial aid made a mistake and went by my parents income. I was 22 with a child at the time. Even if they did not make a mistake, this school is overpriced and the jobs they get you, if any, don't pay enough. It's not worth it. I finished at a better school where financial aid covered 100% of my tuition.

I missed one semester and enrolled into the next. Now that I have one more semester to go I made my schedule however, I was told that one of my classes has been replaced with another and that those credits would not count because when I came back I started under the new curriculum. I'm now in a class that they basically changed the name but teaches the same thing that the replaced class that I took and passed I'm basically repeating. Doing my research I have noticed that they have changed one of the classes in my curriculum every semester for three semesters even going back to an old class that was replaced they would add it back to the curriculum on and off but still basically ending up being the same class but under a different course name.

Started out in the Medical Coding and Reimbursement program doing ICD-10 what I realized is that once I get out of college there my degree is useless as ICD-10 won't be implemtmented then. So after I complained they put us in ICD-9 (what gave us the book for free? Yeah right we had to return the ICD-10 book, which we paid for!). Great wellthe teaching was awful, the one teacher told me they hand us a box and we put the information up on the site to do! No help whatsoever from the instructors, questions took days to get a response. Then they never explained anything the response was your an adult figure it out. Why am I paying to do it on my own. Needless to say after wasting a ton of money on schooling there I switched due to the lack of communication of anyone and the advisor once they had your money could of cared less about you.

At first I was a very suspicious about enrolling, I read a lot of reviews, some were OK others enlighten future or current students about their horrible experiences with the college. I have had some wonderful instructors, all who were professionals in their field. Ranging from a Master Degree in Political Science to a Juris Degree. I will admit the timing for some of the projects were strict. I truly believe with any college if one applies themselves and set realistic goals you can not fail. It where times when I was ready to throw in the towel, I felt overburden and exhausted, frustrated, you name it, at that moment I was feeling it. I AM on a path of enlightenment, letting the brightest light lead the way to knowledge.

I am a recent graduate of Bryant and Stratton Online. As many have said, this school does not spoon feed you information. Each week there is a discussion that is to be posted by a certain day. You are expected to discuss with at least 3 other students anywhere from 3-4 days each week. At the end of each week, opening on a Friday and must be completed by the end of Saturday, is a reflection of the weekly learning. There is a mid-term and a final in each course. The biggest thing to learn about this school is to pay attention and keep up with your work. If there is a problem contact your instructor because they are always willing to help. The academic advisors are great. If I had any questions they answered them for me or sent me to a person that could give me a better answer. The financial aid department was pretty good. I only had one mishap when I first began school and it was fixed immediately. As for the instructors, they were pretty great. I only had a problem with two instructors during my time. I tried to handle the issue at their level but had to ask for help through my advisor on one. The other instructor I had to contact the dean about and had many emails to document the issues at hand. The dean that I spoke with seemed truly interested in solving the problem. Overall, I feel my degree was a success and I worked very hard to accomplish it. You will get out, what you put in. I am currently deciding whether or not to return for a BA degree.

Please, Please, Please, consider the reviews here before enrolling. I am so unhappy with Bryant & Stratton. The teachers I have had have been so cruel. I have had teacher that talk down to me so bad that they made me cry. The work on the other hand was challenging but very constructive. They make you give weekly feedback which is a total trap because the teachers read what your suggestions are can grade you and treat you based on you opinion. I have had teachers who have more spelling errors in their assignments than I do in my rough drafts. I have completed three semesters at Bryant & Stratton so please carefully consider your options. I have never felt so trapped in my life. I have a bunch of loans now with this school and I am having a lot of trouble finding another school that will take all of my credits. Now my choices are to stay at Bryant & Stratton with, what I would call borderline mentally abusive teacher, or lose some of the credit I have busted my butt to earn and transfer. Not to mention, when I told my adviser I wanted to be withdrawn from classes (before the new semester started), she ignored my request and now I am worried I will get a bill for the "class" I did not attend, that I was under the assumption I withdrew from. The whole experience is a nightmare I want to forget.

Do not make the decision to go to this school, you will regret it. I still have not received my diploma and I graduated in 2009, also there was no employment opportunities offered or found for me which is one of their big selling points. The tuition is outrageous, your way better off going to a community college, at lease there you get what you pay for. I did find a job, eventually, and on my own however I did not make enough money in that field so now I am back in school again to pursue a new career. What a waste of time and money.
