Stevens-Henager College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (54)
I went to Stevens-Henager Murray Campus before they moved to the new building. I was told my repayment wouldn't start until I completed the course. It actually started the day I graduated even though I didn't complete the course until 3 months after my graduation date!
Job placement, they set me up with 1 interview, that job was so far from where I live that it was not fesable! No assistance after that!
I had financial aid through the state who paid the extra fees, when I graduated I didn't get my physical associates degree paper because all the sudden I owed them $400.00. I wouldn't pay the extra because the state had paid them. I still don't have my paper and have not been able to get certified because the paper is required!
Then a couple of years ago I tried to go remediate and the curriculum had changed. The school reps got me in the office to set up remediation and I was excited thinking I might finally get some assistance. The school wouldn't call me back to be able to remediate!
They also failed to mention my credits were non-transferable to any other school that wasn't Stevens-Henager!
My tuition $20,000.00 Still paying for degree I cannot use!
Very Bad School
Where to start. I found out through investigation that the only positive reviews in here are from current employees! Of course, that is there whole mantra over there - deception and gullibility. There is a reason why they actively recruit the less than intelligent individuals.
Yes - I am calling myself stupid as well. I should have done my homework, but didn't and now I am in debt and a worthless degree. Why is it worthless? Because, they enroll the less intelligent. They pass the less intelligent. As such, the less intelligent get jobs and utterly destroy this school's reputation. I know of many hiring managers who see our school and then throw our applications away. They laugh at us first and then throw it away. Do yourself a favor and avoid this school. Or, if you are less intelligent and just want a degree - by all means go here because you won't earn the A; they will give it to you :)
I graduated from SHC in 2011 from the medical specialties program. I currently work as a CMA in a hospital. I did get a job right out of school, and I have not had trouble finding other MA jobs. I did very well in school, nothing below an A-. I felt MOST of the teachers were competent and helpful. I did learn what I needed to start working as an MA. I have been able to go back and "re-take" classes that I felt I needed a re-fresher in, which is a great benefit. I am actually still using the "free" laptop.
I do NOT make as much as the "counslers" said I would. I DO owe a ridiculous amount in student loans, which I just had to start paying back. I do not feel like the school was up front about the costs. There were a couple teachers I had that did not know anything about what they were teaching (I actually had to teach the computer teachers a couple things about Windows Xp). I do not feel that the "medical specialties" program is worth the time, or $$. If you want to be an MA, just go to an ATC.
At least know what you are getting into. Know that it IS expensive. Know that they do NOT have the best facilities. But also know that if YOU are willing to put in the work, YOU can make it worth it. Just like YOU will have to do the work when YOU get a job. I find it disgraceful that most the people that I have seen post "negative" reviews just seem to expect everything handed to them, then expect to get a cherry job and make a lot of $ right out of school without putting any effort forth themselves!
Anyone that shares the dedication to their education Stevens Henager is the place to go. The courses are paced so that the students are forced to stay dedicated in order to do well, thus enabling the school to tell if someone is serious about their education.
I would recommend Stevens Henager because the staff are very helpful and are willing to help students with any difficulty they may have and Career Services are very persistent in helping you find a great career upon graduation.
The quality of education that I have received with SHC is bar none and worth every single penny I have spent. The people that come to the college and sign up have to realize that school is NOT a one-night stand. They have to realize what they are getting in to and know that they can and will be, successful. They need to just keep on trying and taking one day at a time. That's what I did. I could not have picked a better school to get my education at.
I can't even begin to tell you or explain in words what SHC did for me. I gained a new love for the word, "Education" and what it means to me. SHC has given me the opportunity to do and be the BEST that I can be and I KNOW that I can accomplish anything in my future endeavors.
Oh!.y the way,I started my Master's Program on 2/13/12. Love it.
I don't know what you all are talking about. This school is a good school. The teachers are all great instructors. They do make you do your work and give you a lot of homework to do, but isn't that what college is all about... The one's that are complaining the loudest, I have found are the one's that don't do their assignments or homework, and are just wanting grades handed to them without actually doing the work. I don't know which area the person is in that states that they have to use cardboard for demonstrations...I personally think that you are full of $%#@!!!!
The only thing that I would like to see change here is for the administration make it a MANDATORY policy that if you are attending the medical program that you must successfully pass a drug test as well as supply random drug testing through out the program.
This school is a joke. From the beginning it has been and now I know it is time for me to quit. The teachers do not teach you and you pay way too much to teach yourself. If you want help they won't give it to you.
I already know that if and when I graduated with my degree I would not be able to find a job. I have heard from many people that went here, that can't find jobs. Also, many people who work at hospitals and universities will not even look at your resume if it says you went to this school.I wouldn't even call this a school because you don't learn.
I feel bad for anyone else who goes here. They have lied to me from the very beginning and I know I am going to be paying for this for the next ten years I'm sure. I feel this is a scam school that only wants money. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.Please don't go here.
Actually the student services is awesome laptop coming to you takes some time , but what do you expect there are many students.
Overall great job. by the way the classes are not all that easy the beginning classes are but they do get difficult
Extremely expensive, very poor student services, lies to students, charges hidden fees, attacks credit rating by charging fees without notification, staff unknowledgable. BEWARE.
I'm here to tell anyone who reads this, "My" expectations are met and challenged everyday, and I absolutely love the Respiratory Therqpy program at Stevens Henager.
I knew exactly what I was stepping into when I joined, I have "NO" complaints! I know I made the right decision.
