Grantham University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (41)
I am a current BACJ student at Grantham and am very happy with my studies so far. I was surprised when I read some of the negative comments, I have not experienced any of those issues. Everyone I've encountered has been extremely helpful from my Student Advisor to my Professors and Instructors. They offer a pay as you go program which has been instrumental in my returning to college studies. I wish they had a Masters Program in Criminal Justice.
I have completed my bachelor's and I'm about to complete my graduate degree -MS Information Technology from Grantham. This is a great school with highly qualified instructors who are ready to teach you. I believe the school is good for everybody who is willing to take the challenge to learn. If you are mature student who works full time/part time and have a family this is the best school for you. You will receive current information and as for the flexibility, it's fantastic. My company is now paying for my tuition and my salary has increases.If you going to study MSIT, I would advise that you get some certification in addition and you will be good to go.
I attended Grantham from March 2012 until I graduated in November 2014. I believe this degree is made for people that are already in the field and are looking to advance their career. The BSEET program is ABET accredited now and is back dated to October 1, 2014. This is a step in the right direction, there are few online schools out there that offer ABET accredited engineering degrees. I am glad to here this seeing this will open more doors for grad school (would be more if they were regionally accredited) and employment. I wish Grantham would offer a Masters in Engineering eventually seeing this is something I want to pursue.
I graduated from Grantham Univeristy and landed an Electrical Engineering job for the Air Force. To all those Grantham doubters all I can say is you were wrong. Even ABET surveyors thought it is one heck of a valuable program. As I know most have never taken our word as graduates that this school is great and its instructors as well as its administration does vaue its students learning. I'll gladly show you the supporting documentation below. Yes, I'm smiling ear to ear while I say that we told you so... http://www.grantham.edu/in-the-news/grantham-university-recognized-abet/ http://main.abet.org/aps/Accreditedprogramsearch.aspx
First, I did not graduate from this college. I studied there for about two years and finally had enough. The staff and instructors are garbage, and there is very little help with school work. The problems are far and wide throughout every part of the school. I can't imagine a worse school. I had to take online courses because I was stationed away.
This "school" is a joke. Please don't waste your money at this place. They honestly don't care about the students, and only care about their profits. It's widely considered a joke in the real world, and my company refuses to even include it in their tuition reimbursement program for that very reason. If your only goal is to earn a worthless degree that will not further your career, without actually learning anything, then by all means waste your time at Grantham.
My education at Grantham was paid for by my employer. Being currently employed in the industry, they were eager for me to have a degree that could be listed when bidding proposals. The calculus courses were challenging causing many sleepless nights. The technical courses were applicable to my position as a site engineer. In 2002 I moved into engineering management, my Grantham credits were accepted at the University where I got my bachelors and masters in science. The key seemed to be my experience and the University's desire to enroll students. I would say that schools of this type are most effective for career advancement for people currently working in the business, particularly if the employer is willing to reimburse tuition. Today I'm a systems engineer pulling $130k with my pick of jobs. My Grantham degree started me on this path.
This place is a joke. Their financial aid department is the worst I've ever seen!! Complete waste of time!! At first they seem nice and like they really want to help you, but that's just to get you in the door. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Go some where else.
My advice to anyone who is considering Grantham to go seek elsewhere. Grantham started out great. As far as the education goes, there are resources to help you if you are struggling and communication is always the key. The advisors suck a** and have the knowledge of a 8th grader. They are absolutely no help at all. I swear in the end, it's IIke it's their mission to fail you. I was down to my last class at Grantham and I'm proactive so I was already doing job apps and trying to find a master's program at a different school....My degree was frowned upon because employers said that Grantham wasn't accredited. My credits were no good BECAUSE GRANTHAM ISN'T ACCREDITED. I was so hurt. I wasted time and thousands of dollars for nothing.
This "school" is NOT regionally accredited, nor are they making any effort to be. Also, the classes and employees/faculty a joke. That said, here's what I found most interesting - many of the employment positions at Grantham University require you to have a degree from an accredited college. Therefore, this school is hypocritical any obviously they do not believe in their own product. Sad and a rip off.
