Strayer University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (114)
For all the bad news and reviews Strayer gets from students and other so called "experts", I can say I am extremely happy with the results. I put in the time and earned a BS in CIS with a 3.9 GPA at graduation. I finished the BS in 2 years time.
With that degree I was hired as a software engineer with a starting salary of 85,000. I spent the next two years gaining experience and earning my MBA from a AACSB accredited school. Upon graduation, I started my new position as a senior consultant at a small technical firm with a salary over 145,000 a year.
Without Strayer I would still be serving people out of a drive thru at a fast food restaurant. Thanks Strayer....
You can't contact the teacher, there help desk won't provide you with a # to call them. Only by e-mail, and they keep telling you to open a ticket, open a ticket, 4 tickets later and still "open a ticket" they well stay in contact 'till they get there $$$$. Right after that they well ignore your e-mails & phone calls.
Oh yeah, the whole time the DEAN knows everything. But keeps on telling you "sorry I can't do anything about it".
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 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 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.
