WHEN REGISTERING FOR SCHOOL AT STRAYER THEY WILL NOT, (I REPEAT) THEY WILL NOT LET YOU KNOW WHAT IT COST TO ATTEND STRAYER, AND WHAT THE GOVERMENT WILL ALLOW FOR FINANCIAL AID......

FOR A BA/BS AT STRAYER IT $63,000.00 AND THE GOVERMENT ONLY ALLOW $57,000.00!!!! WHICH MEAN MOST PEOPLE CANNOT GET A DEGREE UNLESS THEY CAN GET A PERSONAL LOAN FOR AND ADDTIONAL 6 TO 7 THOUSAND DOLLARS. IF THEY TOLD POTENTIAL STUDENT THAT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE MANY PEOPLE ATTENDING THEIR SCHOOL.

UNLESS YOU ARE SURE YOU CAN PAY BEYOND WHAT THE GOVERMENT ALLOW IN STUDENT LOANS LOOK ESLEWHERE. MOST STUDENTS FIND THIS OUT AT THE END WHEN THERE ARE 3-5 CLASSES BEFORE THEY CAN GRADUATE. AND A FEW STUDENTS CANT GET A LOAN SO THEY DONT HAVE A DEGREE, AND THEY HAVE TO PAY BACK $57,000.00 AND THERE IS NO MORE STUDENT LOANS TO ATTEND ANOTHER SCHOOL....

STRAYER DO DIRTY, DIRTY BUSINESS!!!! IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME ASK THEM HOW MUCH THEY COST AND WHAT GOVERMENT ALLOW IN STUDENT LOAN, JUST ASK??? I WAS ALREADY TAKEN BY THEM WHEN I FOUND THIS OUT AND THEY MAKE NO APOLOGY, THEY DONT CARE!!!

I checked into Universities around the city to see what degrees they offered. The problem was not the degrees they offered but the time they were offered. I have a full time job and a family and cannot live on campus or go to school full time during the day. Strayer University gave me the opportunity to pursue the degree I desired on a schedule I could handle. I went both online and on campus. I had a great experience with both, although I prefer online classes. I received both my Bachelor's in Accounting and my Master's in Accounting from Strayer. I wish they had a Doctorate program; I would go back one more time if they did.

After working in the workforce for many years with an AA degree, I felt it was time to further my education. With a family and full time job a traditional school was not an option for me. I looked into non-traditional schools in my area and Strayer University had exactly what I needed. A campus is available in my town if I wanted to take a class but the online courses made school life more convenient. I plan to graduate late next year with a Bachelor's in International Business and then would like to get my Master's degree.

I got my AA from a local community college, but after the death of my husband I didn't want to take time away from my job to attend school, so I looked for a university that offered a complete online program. Strayer answered that need and offered the BBA I was looking for. I have been able to work at my own pace, and next year I will finally graduate.

Strayer University has allowed me to continue my education online around me and my family’s busy schedules. Having the ability to log in to my classes, participate in live chats, and submit assignments directly to my professors is perfect for me. Earning my degree is very important to me, and I’m so glad that I chose Strayer University’s online program to help me reach my educational goals.

The professional and courteous faculty and staff are always available to answer questions with convenient office hours. The online classrooms are so simple to navigate. If you have any technical issues Strayer’s awesome technical support team is always a phone call away to assist you. I have enjoyed every aspect of attending Strayer University, the information that I’ve learned will allow me to be successful in the business industry and beyond. Strayer University is an excellent choice for an online education, anyone who is considering pursuing a degree online should consider Strayer.

There are so many schools marketing their MBA programs online. I was admitted to George Washington University Health Service MBA program.

I could afford it, but so glad I did not give them my $50,000. In comparison, Strayer is much more professional in the admission process. They are responsive and accommodating. They clearly understand apprehension of students whose undergraduate and graduate degrees came from traditional on-site campuses.

So what, they change the text books frequently; so do concepts we need to know to be competitive in the business arena. There was a swift move in the curriculum from focus on Stocks, new housing starts and hedge funds cost of capital and private industry to focus on understanding fiscal and monetary policy and recession.

If there is an interest in Healthcare Management and finance, perhaps Strayer needs a close look.

I am in my second quarter at Strayer. I have been working in the IT/adult education field as a curriculum designer for the last 4 years. As a contractor I work on projects that are 6 months to a year. Most potential employers kept asking me if I could program in Java but I could not. So last winter I decided to add that skill to my resume. Strayer had an fantastic list of cutting edge IT classes that they used to hook me in. So far so good, but then I found out that every class...even programming class requires APA paper writing. I spend a week or two in every class writing english papers instead of programming. You get only 10 weeks per quarter and several are spent on learning a new writing style that changes every year. Did I mention I already have 2 years of english? Who teaches paper writing in programming class? I wonder what they teach in english and professional writing class? If you want to be a writer go to Strayer. If you want any other skill... think twice before you go.

I graduated from Strayer (magna cum laude) back in April 2009. As with any institution of higher learning, you have good teachers and bad teachers. I am proud to say that earning a degree at Strayer has helped advance my career.

I am tired of people implying online degrees are not respected. I am a living example of how that is so untrue. Since graduation, I have received a promotion to Senior Accountant at my employer. There are people attending well known schools who don't attend class. At the end of the sememster they beg the teacher for an "A" and get it. I took online classes at a brick and mortar college I attended. These type of classes require discipline and HARD work. My only gripe is the lack of help at our home campus. It would be days/weeks before I would get a return phone call.

I am now looking into Jones International University to study for my Master's in Forensic Accounting. If Strayer offered this specialized degree, I would have returned for sure.

I also attended this online university, as a transfer student. I was alarmed with the final cost to go to this school, (over priced compared to an on campus school). There is little respect given in the job market with this degree compared to the other co-workers who have graduated from an on-campus program. Think twice when it comes to some online schools and your education.

After doing a lot of research on online schools, I chose Strayer. I'm now within four classes of graduating and will do so in March 2009. I can say that the courses are challenging and the professors and staff helpful. They have made my education fun while understanding that I work full time and have four children. The online program worked best for me as I travel and my family takes up a lot of my time. By being able to "attend" classes during my lunch hour, it frees up a lot of extra time that I wouldn't have if I went to a traditional brick and mortar school. I'm very pleased that my degree will be from Strayer. I'm looking forward to wearing the school colors when I walk across the stage to get my degree. It's been a long road, but is worth it. If you are considering attending school online, I highly recommend Strayer. If you would prefer a traditional brick and mortar school, also look into Strayer as they have several campuses. The books aren't any more expensive as any other college or university.
