Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 2006

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

Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 2002

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.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 1988

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.

Degree: Business Administration, Management and Operations, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences and Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

They are nationally accredited, not regionally accredited. Try transfer credit to a state school that is regionally accredited and you'll be denied any credit. Just good for resume padding for job but if trying for higher learning degree at another institution prepared to be denied.

Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

Grantham is what you make of it. I feel my did help me land my current position as a controls engineer. The only suggestion I would have for the school is, they should seek ABET accreditation for the engineering degrees. This would help them attract more students.

Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

At times, the course material was very challenging, especially the "Systems and Signal Theory" class. But if you give it 100%, you can complete your degree as I did. My goal was to obtain a bachelor's degree in electronic engineering with a 4.0 GPA, which I was successful in doing. For me, GU's online program gave me the best opportunity for completing my engineering degree, as I work full time with limited time to drive to a college. I must say something about my student advisor, Katie Langford. She was awesome in helping me obtain my degree. Without her help, I would have been forced to take one more class to complete my degree, which would have given me ~132 credits. Thanks Katie!! Even with this one class issue, I would strongly recommend GU to anyone. For the most part, the class professors were accommodating to student's needs. Interacting with them through discussion posts and emails provided a connection that was a conduit for learning. My very first professor, professor R., told me I was her first student to obtain a 100% in her class, and she wanted me to keep in touch (this was in 2011). Every year since then I have sent her an update on how my classes were going. Even though she no longer teaches at GU, she was still encouraging me to complete my degree. It was awesome telling her I graduated with a 4.0 GPA, which she knew was my goal. Professor's like Professor R. is what makes GU so special.
