Stevens-Henager College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (55)
Don't get discouraged. I STRUGGLED IN HIGH SCHOOL. I was nervous about going back to school. Yes, signing up is painful process. Once you do it takes off. The instructors are amazing. They work with you. You need to reach out. If you work. Then this school will work. Homework isn't unreasonable. Yes you have to do your best. In high school I was a C student . I now get A's And B's. Though it it's an accelerated program ,they make it work, free tutoring for your whole family. I absolutely love this online college.
Experiences: 1. I was told that if I made monthly payments of 100 dollars, there would be a balance of about 650 by the time I finished my associates degree,but when I went to do my exit interview there was a balance left owing of 3600 dollars which I thought it to be odd.. I continued to pay that money but thought there was a mistake because the numbers the school people were showing me never added up. Finally after a well hard fight I was able to prove to them I had paid too much and they had to reimburse me some of that money. 2. I applied to a position offered by the company where one of my instructors was working. In fact he was one of the panelists during my interview., After the interview, I asked how I have done, and he said to me "you did very well" so I felt really good about it, Three weeks later one of his colleagues called me and said they felt I was not ready for the position even though it was an entry level position.You see what Im getting at? One of my instructors at SHC with the power to hire me there did not think I was ready for the position!!!(I KNOW IRONIC) 3. I can go on,and on, on.. Some of you will get on here and say that I did not put forth the effort and I will respect that.. But know that I had a full time job at the time and I still finished with a GPA of 3.80 but the degree that I obtained is no "validated" even by the company I work for now. Do what you think is best is your money and life. Im only sharing my experiences at SHC. with you.
I thought they had great teachers, who tried hard, I really enjoyed going to school there! It is expensive, but the books, computer, and all of the other benefits that you get are included, it's a private school, the I.T. Techs, tutors, schedulers, teachers, counselors, etc.,were always right there to help you when you needed it! I thought they did a great job, and I learned a lot, They are still very helpful when needed, even as alumni, the college is set up so that you may go back to audit, refresher courses, for free for the rest of your life. If you need assistance finding employment they will help you the best that they can!
Please shut down this place! It is just robbing students! Literally usually with financial aid students will get some money for living but they show us the prices so high that it takes all of the money you don't see a single penny just that it pays your tuition. Then the instructors suck. The degree you receive isn't credible anywhere really it's not worth it. And you can take cna, phlebotomy, MA, pharmacy tech, medical coding and I'm sure the rest of what they offer somewhere else with a better education for MUCH MUCH less and learn way more. They promote that it's a quick way to get a degree and a job at the end. It's so not worth it at all. Go look at your community college first they have tech schools too. If I would've known and there were reviews I definitely wouldn't have bothered.
Was the worst school you could ever go to, didn't learn anything , went for 3 years in computer networking and know nothing about it so my degree is useless, I cant really use it. im sorry three 1 month classes on the basics of computer networking is not enough to under stand what and get a degree under the rest of the classes i took had nothing to do with the degree. Also they would throw you into classes before you even took any of the prerequisite classes took a calculus class before college algebra. I originally went for programming but the incompetence of the teachers of teachers pushed me out of that so had to complete degree under networking. I came to teacher and asked for help and that i didn't understand the logic in the programming language we were going over and apparently that meant to pick on me for every single question until i walked out of class and switched degrees. was too late to quit or waste tens of thousands of dollars on nothing now i have a useless $75,000 piece of paper. oh joy. DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU WANT A REAL EDUCATION THIS SCHOOL IS A JOKE AND A RIP OFF.
A stupid college ,only working for money,no good teaching or good classess .no good staff members ,torturing for money.no use if we study something from there also very much costly and education is not useful once completed from their,i never liked their.
This college is not the greatest.... Most of the design elements I was taught at this school I learned in GRADE school. On numerous occasions this college failed to complete necessary tasks on THEIR end to ensure I stayed enrolled. Poor communication and lack of effort on their end caused me to be dropped from their courses a 2nd time. They claimed I needed specific paperwork that I provided with AMPLE time to process they reassured me that everything was correct and my courses would resume as normal. Weeks went by and still no classes, no one called me. I called them and they told me that the paperwork WAS not what they needed and I would NOT be allowed to return to class.
I felt the teachers barely knew what they were talking about. I applied several places and they wouldn't acknowledge I had a degree because of the school. I tried to transfer to another school but the said I'd have to start all over because they wouldn't accept anything I'd done at Stevens Henager. They charge way too much for such a poor quliaty education. Wish I would have done more research before I started going to Stevens Henager. I tell everyone I know not to go there. Biggest mistake of my life and believe me I've made a lot of mistakes.
While in attendance I was blind folded, I really thought this school would help me get on some sort of fast track to my career.... boy was I wrong! I am now 70,000$ in debt! wait wait wait no I am 50,000 in debt because I qualified for a Pell Grant. These guys promised and promised I could get a job basically in any medical field with the administration program so whether I wanted to be a cna phlebotomist a MA what ever I wanted to do I could do it... Yet I am still unemployed and the only thing I have been offered was an unpayed internship for an insurance company who wanted me to work 50 hours every week. HAHAHA very funny that would not even leave me any time to apply or get a part time job to help pay off them student loans. People please open your eyes and don't even bother with this school. Weber State, U of U, snow college, even UCLA is 10's of thousands of dollars cheaper, and although Stevens Henager is accredited their credits are NOT transferable!!!
Love this school! I graduated this year & they helped me get into my current job! I can't tell you how happy I am now that I work in a career that I love and I would recommend this school to anyone!
