Grantham University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (45)
Although I wish the accredadation was ranked higher, as a full time employee with a family to feed, Grantham was a great fit for my professional schedule. The class material and professor input were both challenging and rewarding. Should I decide to work on my graduate degree at another university most to all my credits will transfer. Keep that in mind when choosing the best distance degree program for your schedule, transferable credits.
This school is a joke! I have NEVER IN MY LIFE heard of a school not allowing you to review your UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS because you owe them $300!! I could totally understand them not giving you an official copy of your transcripts, but to not be able to anything online because of a collections hold is ridiculous! They don't even care about working out a payment plan with you either! It is all or nothing! What school doesn't want a student to return and get money from them? Wait...Apparently this one! I am more than happy to setup a payment plan for the balance, even though financial aid was used and then changed and then owed a balance...So confusing and they don't even care to explain any of it to you either! They get you in the door with all the great words and helpfulness, but as soon as you are in and can't get out, they treat you like garbage!! They don't care about you being successful or anything else, just want your money!! DO NOT ATTEND HERE UNLESS YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT THEM SCREWING YOU OVER!!
I had to withdraw from the program on 7/19/16 and my course started 7/6/16. The reason was due to my employer losing our contract and all of us set to lose our jobs so tuition reimbursement was not allowed. I notified the school as soon as I found out. Now almost a year later, I received a call from collections as they are charging me 400 for classes that I never took. I never received anything from them saying I had a bill. All this school cares about is money. I wouldn't waste my time if I were you.
For the record, I did not graduate from Grantham; I withdrew from that place in 2016. I started in 2012 and the admission seemed nice and helpful. Once I started classes, things changed. The first term is three classes that are all due on the same days. It says it is self-paced, but some of their reading assignments are ridiculous (4-5 CHAPTERS in a week), the discussions have nothing to do with the reading material and sometimes, neither do the assignments. I used my Post 9/11 GI Bill to go here and it's been nothing but a headache since I also have a full time job and was covered shifts at work (, only giving me one day off a week because I put my foot down and told my supervisor I wasn't working 7 days straight.) I worked overnights then, so it was difficult to get a hold of my instructors in a timely manner, if they responded at all. I was emailing them WEEKLY to let them know that my assignments would be late and I explained that it was due to my work schedule and I was still docked points for it being late. Which leads me to my next point, the tempo. I felt that the tempo was TOO FAST, so fast that It was far too easy to get behind. The lack of communication didn't help this matter at all. I didn't really feel I learned anything or even had time to learn anything, I got behind and owed them payments, but I have a zero balance and trying to request my transcript and currently fighting with them over a hold. I wouldn't wish this school on my worst enemy.
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.
