Rasmussen College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (59)
I felt the program was disorganized but completely prepared me for boards. My expectations so we're to teach me what I need to know to pass boards and be a competent nurse and then I found my own job to fine tune my skills and evolve into a better nurse.
I attended Rasmussen's Phlebotomy Program, not only once but twice!! It is beyond me how a person can pass finals, but oh...wait your online portion and in class assignments didn't meet passing criteria... Seriously??? Very unorganized, very unprofessional, Financial Aid don't know what they are doing. I was working with the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, Rasmussen received payment for me which included extra for mileage and etc, it took over 3 months to get that money....I really think these people need to have a class action suit filed against them!! October 2016 I took a 3 month course through a college with a way better reputation, and the Instructor actually knew what she was doing!! I am now Certified in Phlebotomy!!!! Don't waist your financial aid on this school....They are in it for the money only!!!!
Literally the biggest mistake I have made recently was to attend Rasmussen. When you inquire for information regarding the school, they will blow up your email and phone for days. Once you are in, no one, and I mean no one will respond regardless of the severity of your issue. Good luck talking to someone in person because there is no one there except for a receptionist, ALWAYS! There might be 4 people in the office (I only know this via emails), and I've emailed all 4, TWICE, and NONE of them took the time to respond to me at all. It is all a front to take your money. The classes are a joke, the teachers are a joke and the exams are grossly incorrect but you can not challenge them since you will never be allowed to review once taken. The schedules change 3-4 times before you finally get a correct one, and this happens like a day before you are expected to attend. You can not choose your schedule, nor will they work with you to accommodate you. The uniforms are so cheap and uncomfortable, you end up going to a nursing store to buy your own. You will pay almost $6,000 for a 9 week "quarter" where you will learn absolutely nothing! The staff turnover is insane and some of the teachers are not qualified to even be a teacher, they are simply "seat fillers." Google "indeed" or "monster" and see for yourself. I read all of these reviews before enrolling and I wish I had taken them seriously. I am not one to bad mouth people nor to take the time to write reviews, but if I can stop just one person from making a huge mistake, then it will be worth it! I attend the New Port Richey, FL campus. I really wish this school was who they pretended to be in orientation. You will never ever see those smiling friendly faces after that by the way... I hope this school gets investigated and shut down for robbing good students of their money and a quality education! Shame on you!
The classes and instructors are awesome (with few exceptions). All of my classes took online. However, the Aurora, IL campus career services is horrible. The campus as a whole is terrible. No one ever answers the phone. If you ever need anything, know that your call will never be answered. Yes, the front desk will always answer, but then they are just going to transfer you to a voicemail. The career services people are NEVER EVER EVER EVER available. I think it is just one person in charge of it all for hundreds if not thousands of students. It is just horrible and frustrating. The one time that I did get a hold of the career services person she never gave real information. All she ever said was that "we work with xyz company." What in the world does that mean? That means absolutely nothing. Look, the college is affordable up to a point. But make no mistake, it is affordable in the long run, but not the short run. They never ever told me that I was going to be paying close to $1000/ month for tuition. Know that whatever they tell you will be paying that it will be unaffordable every month. They are very dishonest and just horrible to help. They actually do not help at all. Just know what you are getting yourself into.
I had a great experience with the Bachelor Marketing Program at Rasmussen College. I loved the program, teachers, and classmates. The online format was perfect for my mid-shift schedule. My teachers and student advisor were also very helpful. I great choice.
I am very surprised by the number of negative reviews on here! I have had such a great experience at this school and with all of the staff and instructors. I am in the second quarter of the nursing program at Rasmussen College - Rockford Campus. What I quickly learned is that you have to be a very motivated and independent learner to be successful at this school. The courses are mostly online, and they move quickly through the material. If you are not disciplined enough to learn the material on your own and complete the course work on time, then you probably won't be successful at this school. The program is not easy, and the format in which this school teaches its students is not for everyone. Personally, I believe that Rasmussen College is a fantastic school that takes much pride in the quality nurses that their program produces. They care about their students and provide them with endless resources to ensure that they are successful. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is serious about their education and is not afraid to work hard for it.
They are your best friends until your first day. When you are a student, you hope that your teachers like you. Hopefully the instructors like you. They seem to change with every quarter. But they are so afraid to step on the toes the of the previous instructors. We all want to be great nurses. They seem to not care about that. Be aware that they are FOR PROFIT. Sad but true.
I have had great experiences with this school! I am nearly finished and have gotten an A grade every semester in every class. i work at a Bright Horizons which is a "partner school" with Rasmussen and received discounts for my credits. Most of my professors were fair. Every other semester is seemed i would get a difficult professor but I got through it. This program is not easy, it is hard work but so worth it! i am now able to advance in my early Childhood career thanks to Rasmussen's accelerated program and flex options. i took 4 FREE classes while attending and enjoyed every minute of it. I have seen so many bad reviews but I have had no negative experiences that weren't resolved. I was even put through to the Dean when i had an issue, there customer service is astounding. I recommend Rasmussen to anyone looking to advance their career within their field of study! Thank you Natalie and Karen for your support during my attendance!
I see all of these reviews and wonder what has happened to these people. I have never had any issues this school. I went to school for video game design the first time and before I graduated I had a job. As a direct result of my degree I have moved up in my company and furthered my career. It has afforded me to go back to school for a second degree that my company is paying for. They realize how much of an asset my education has been.
I am seeing all these bad reviews and I am like really. This school is very intense. They are fast past 5.5 week course. You have to be willing to put in the work. I just completed my second term. It was hard but I learned. My teachers were very helpful and informative. I can email or call my advisor and get a quick response. No later than 1 business day but I usually hear from her way sooner. I been to a lot of online schools and I finally found a online school to fit my busy life style. It's very affordable. Much cheaper than most online schools. Devry wanted almost $500 a credit hour for their program and you are only allowed to transfer certain amount of credits in plus. $40,000 for a AS degree is ridiculous!!!! Rasmussen accepted all my credits that applied to my degree which was about 35 and my tuition is $199 per credit hour. I stumped across this school trying to go to WGU. I am using this school a a prerequisite for WGU. WGU want me to have a AS degree and be a certified RHIT before I can be accepted in the Health Informatics program.
