I am a current student at Bryant & Stratton, I had previously tried community colleges and felt like a number, and like they could care less whether I passed or failed, not to mention the drive to the campus and them deciding my hours. I am so glad that I was accepted at Bryant & Stratton. This is college and it is for adults and you are expected to behave that way. Everyone from every department has been more than happy to assist me in anyway. I have received phone calls, emails, and text just checking to make sure I was adjusting well. Now that I have been there a while, I still get random emails checking in on me, if I ever have to email or call anyone they are respond promptly. Additionally, I have had a great experience with all of my instructors, they do expect you to do your work, but they are also willing to help you in anyway that they can, even giving personal phone numbers, Skype account, Google Hangout accounts, among other things. I currently have a 4.0 GPA and have had since I enrolled and it is because I have worked hard for it. I truly believe that you can succeed if you want to, but you do have to work for it. I would also like to add, with ever college there's always going to be some credits that do not transfer, that is normal. However, that won't affect me because I intend to stay with Bryant & Stratton until I get my Masters Degree. Anyone who wants to do this can, and here at B&S they develop individualized plans for the students and I love that, they know that most of have experience and I think that is one thing that I love the most. I also home school my three children, who are ages 11,12, & 13, and with the flexibility of B&S I am able to do all of that, my work, take care of house, and my other responsibilities, I also do hair part-time, and make and sell home decor. I agree with the other people you get what you put in. I have to say that online school is not the right choice for everyone, if you expect to be spoon fed, and babied, then it isn't, if you are not self-disciplined then it is not for you. You have to be willing to sign in everyday, and stay on top of your work, you have to make it a priority, and make a commitment. I love the classes lasting 7.5 weeks, I have ADD and I get bored easy, but with classes being mini terms, I don't have time to get bored, I always have something to do. B&S has been a perfect fit to me. I am hoping that they have a Dean's list and that I make it for my GPA, that is the only thing I keep forgetting to ask. This has been a great choice for me, that has worked perfectly with my schedule, my personality, my life, and everything else.

I am fixing to enroll into B&S , I spoke with them today and everyone I spokewith was so very friendly. They was helpful with the iinformation given to me in regards to the school and programs offered. I am excited to see how this new life journey goes. The only thing that has me weiry is I have not heard much about B&S other than what I have read online. The comment from Angie helped a lot , I just want to know I am going somewhere that cares if you succeed and treats you as a individual. I also do not want to go to a school where when I have my degree I can do nothing with it , I know many people all over the U.S is having these problems so I tend to worry. But I believe this is going to go great for me, I am going ng to be optimistic and hope that all works out. If anyone has any words of advice or has graduated and gotten a career with their degree please let me know if possible and of course if you do not care to do so. I thank you all for reading my story, I'm looking forward to starting school at B&S IF I GET ACCEPTED....... fingers crossed

Terrible college to go to. They're good at roping you in but once you're there they do anything they can to make a couple extra dollars. They have gone as far as messing my schedule up so I had to stay for an extra semester. Since I had credits from high school and I would graduate early from college. Since they still get their money from the state if I graduate within two years so I still had to pay for my extra semester and it doesn't matter to them because they still get paid at the end of the year. They don't have anything together as far as student information. In one section of the school I'm in the computer as a graduate and in others I'm not. Terrible college experience I would not recommend it to anyone. Online classes just get worse and worse on top of that.

I'm sorry , how did they get you to have to stay a extra semester. I'm fixing to enroll and have been doing a lot of reading reviews and this is the 1st negative one I have seen, so I am very curious about your story. What I have heard on the good side I love and want to go to this school , but I also feel I need to hear the negative parts as well

Did this Degree Help Your Career?

I had a great experience at this school. I did the online program, took 4 classes in 8 months and received my Accounting Certificate. Almost 20 years ago I attended college (on campus) and received a BA, so I am new to the online world. I thought it was great, but you need to be self motivated, organized, hardworking, and be able to budget your time. The classes are completed in 6 calendar weeks so it's a lot of information to learn in a short time. If you're a sponge it won't matter but if you need a lot of time to absorb material then this will be very difficult for you-BUT not impossible. The accounting classes are probably too much to learn in this format in such a short time frame. However, I did take a Business class and it was great online. Also, be prepared to read and write A LOT because that's the main focus, especially online. I don't know how other online programs work but as technology advances I'd like to other modalities used such as video conferencing with class/professor and more student accountability when it comes to test taking. Staff was great in responding to my emails and answering my questions. Yeah hiccups happened along the way but that's LIFE. Your job will not be perfect, so part of the whole process is LEARNING. As long as you are learning and moving forward that's what matters.

I am uncertain about where all the negativity is coming from about Bryant and Stratton. I am currently enrolled in the Medical Assisting program and due to finish in a 3 months. First I have to say that I haven't had a problem with anyone of the staff since I been there. They are overly happy each time I see them. Instructors were very caring and actually cared if you passed the program. I can honestly say that while attending this college I have noticed that the only ones that have anything negative to say are the ones that rarely come to class or don't turn in their assignments on time. When the teachers express the importance of the assignments due, they act like they have been offended. When they get a zero for not turning the assignment they instantly turn into the complaint department!!! All i can say is nobody told us to enroll in college.....we made that decision ourselves. So as grown people we are old enough to accept the challenges that college has to offer and do your best while there. Currently I have a 3.8 GPA and pushing to get a 4.0 before graduating.,,,and yes I work and take care of my children. If I can accept the challenge,,,,you can to! Enjoy all that Bryant and Stratton has to offer!

Costs more than a community college, credits are not accepted on the same scale of non-profit colleges, lots of complaints against them and people do not get jobs as easily with this training.

I agree, you have to be motivated and organized. I am also a current student at Bryant & Stratton, and have maintained a 4.0 GPA, I am enrolled in the Human Resources Specialist Program. I too, have had a great experience thus far. I tried going to a community college several years ago, and going to a campus hours a day, which I had to drive 45 minutes one way, then back, and also work, and take care of my kids. At that college I did not feel like they cared at all, I honestly felt like a number. I ended up having to withdraw, I just could not do it all.

Bryant & Stratton has been a total different experience, I have felt important from day one, once I applied and got things going, anytime I have had a question about anything it has been answered right away. All of the staff has been incredible. I do all my classes online, and as you said you do have to be organized and willing to work, and you have to keep up with your work, but in my opinion we knew that when we signed up. All of the instructors from what I have seen have been more than willing to to help in anyway possible, the communication portal is always open with all of the instructors and the other staff.

It is a little expensive, but I do enjoy the flexibility, I am able to do everything I need to do with three children who I also homes school. I am in total agreement with you that if you want to do it, you can and Bryant & Stratton has been totally involved in wanting me to succeed.

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.

I have also had a great experience, and I have read some of the other comments about credits not transferring but every college is like that, there will always be credits that will not transfer from one college to the next.

I have nothing but good things to say either, I have completed my work and received detailed feedback, and I do have a great GPA that I am proud of and I have worked my tail off. Those who have said that if you have good grades you are a brown-nosing is absolutely ridiculous. I know that I have studied and worked every day and earned each grade. I am proud there are those of us who have had or are having a good experience are standing up for this college.

Hey I'm at that school now, in the same program. Can you expand on what happened a little more? Suddenly I'm kind of worried about attending B&S

Considering B&S - 11 days ago

I am also considering Bryant and Stratton. However, I would not but to much weight in a review where the reviewer does not use the correct context of the word "implement." Words matter Sir/Ma'am and being able to use them correctly will serve you well in the future; especially if you are trying to persuade an audience.

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.

You're saying you devoted 40 hours per week to your education? I guess if you're not working at all, that is doable. But not in the real world.
