Rasmussen College Online Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (61)
DO NOT ATTEND THIS "COLLEGE"!!! I enrolled at Rasmussen this year for my Associate Degree and planned on getting my Bachelors degree there as well. When I first contacted this school the advisor was very responsive. He called me back timely and was very nice. The minute I signed that form to enroll I never heard from him again. I was just another number in his quota of enrollees to get suckered into this school. The instructors aren't qualified to teach preschool let alone college classes. Basically it is powerpoints and just reading. Instructors do not respond to emails and you get no help. I tried to use one of the online tutors I pay for in my tuition and on several occasions was told " my time is up i have to "release" you or I cannot help you. I spent a ton of money in loans here now for only 6 months of classes and got zero out of it. The credits won't even transfer to a real university so I really got nothing out of the big loans i have to pay now. I withdrew for next quarter and will be going elsewhere. Please save your money and do your research on this school. I only wish someone would have told me this before I put my future on the line. These reviews are honest. This is a business NOT a school. They care about money not your education.
I became disabled while I was attending this online program that left me unable to drive. The career counselor was not sympathetic andcwas sending job postings to towns far away from where I live. She was not helpful and I think this program was hortible. Not only am I not prepared to join a management team at a company, I am left with a student loan that I cannot afford. The jobs that my career counselor was offering me to go on interviews for were in the $15,000-20,000 range. I didn't need a degree to earn that amount
Do not attend this for-profit ripoff. They offer state of the art live support when trying to get your money and enroll you, and you'll get the impression that everything's good here, but afterwards you'll be left in the dirt. Hardly any of my accredited university credits did not transfer (Which should of raised a red flag). The Information Tech classes they enrolled me in were garbage. Don't waste your time and money here!
When reading some of the reviews I am surprised. I started with Rasmussen when I lived in the US, when we moved back to Europe I continued with Rasmussen to complete my degree. During the move the instructors were very helpful and understand the hectic. I almost done, 2 semesters left and I have only good comments to tell. Whenever I had a question and sent an email, the same day I received a response the same day. The accelerated course is a challenge sometimes when you work and also have children but when keep you keep up with the work and follow the instructions you can follow perfectly. The instructors are nice and responsive, if I have a question each email is answered within 24 hours. It takes discipline to complete all the work, but at the end you will receive a degree you worked for and deserve it! I would recommend this school to anyone who has self disciple and commitment.
Nowdays you need reviews, opinions and luck when it comes to making a simple decision. On a scholar level this is by far the worst school I ever attended. Some Instructors do not follow up with emails, you have to chase them down to grade your school work, the amount of work required is just absurd, the whole classroom is based on a 45 mins recording lecture once a month at best twice a month. Staff dean and counselors all have the same agenda, there is not a system in place to support students. My 1st semester was my last semester with this school. Its not a cheap school therefor I suffest you spend your hard earn mkney somewhere else if you're serious about your education
Veterans do not go here! the classes are mostly online and are poorly taught. You will be charged for classes by the day and Rasmussen ends the quarters early. They are not the 11 weeks that's you pay for and you have to do coursework through the holidays. They change courses on you and force you to spend more money with a new course they adopted and make you pay the price. It ishould only regionally accredited not nationally. Waste of money. Veterans look elsewhere for quality education this college is failing.
This school is a complete joke. They butter you up with how "perfect" their program is, just to learn its unorganized and its self taught. Don't waste your time or your money. Go get a real legit degree. The instructors are rude and don't know anything but power points. It's all about money.
Rasmussen is the 7th college I've attended in the last 4 years, two which were non-profit and five which were for profit. All of the schools I've attended were online and I've by far had the best experience with Rasmussen's teaching staff and advisors. In my 6 semesters with Rasmussen everyone has been helpful in assisting me and getting me in classes and checking up when I fall behind and ablit every three weeks or so just to see how it's going. The instructors are great and all that I've had were more than willing to give one on one time when I needed help or clarification. Don't be lazy and expect anything to be handed to you, this is not that type of school, it's not a degree mill and some classes are very challenging. You must take initiative and work hard sometimes and ask for help soon as you need it rather than waiting until the last day of your weeks lesson to ask or make up excuses and expect them to work around your procrastination. The instructors have been very helpful and understanding when life has got in the way and have been very willing to work with me and work out a joint solution together. The overall experience is good in my opinion and I would recommend this school.
I'm surprised to see some of the negative comments. I am halfway through my program, and am impressed with the courses taken so far. There are always some instructors that are not as good as others, but overall, my experience has been a good one. You get out of it what you put into it. I can see where a person could easily fall behind if they do not keep up with the fast pace of the accelerated classes. I am very pleased with my decision to attend Rasmussen online. Courses are challenging, and rewarding. I highly recommend considering this school.
I loved the field i was studying but Rasmussen was not teaching me what i needed to know about the field i was going into. it isn't worth the money we use to put in when the degrees aren't worth the paper they are printed on. not to mention the advisors aren't qualified to teach us, the student advisors don't give a hoot about the students. If I would have finished my degree with them; I wouldn't have known squat about my degree field. I would have paid 26,000 dollars only to make 29,000 a year.
