Argosy University Online Reviews - Bachelor's in Business Administration
After a year at a community college I went to Argosy to finish my Bachelor's degree. I am glad I did. I've had some great professors and really enjoyed the 5 week courses. I don't miss 16 week classes. The student services staff and finance department are great people and very helpful. Now I am an MBA student at Argosy with plans to complete my DBA there.
Lovely and friendly staff will work for the students, the Dean is very supportive and very active in the day to day formalities. My academic advisor was always therror when I was in need to making important decisions on my future and Career choices. The staff is very knowledgeable in all areas of service they offer.
This is the worst decision I ever made. Attending this "school" is the biggest scam in the world. After 20 months of classes (even though I was only supposed to take 16 months until they decided to mess with my schedule) I am now being told that the classes that I had originally had transferred over from my previous school "no longer count" and I am now required to pay and take an additional 3 classes. Also, the change how many credits I've earned. I had originally had 114 out of 120 credits, and after "complaining" that I was scheduled for 9 more classes even though I only needed 2, I am now down to 105 credits. Yeah, that's right. They went in and CHANGED how many credits I earned. Completely ridiculous and I can't believe I have wasted so much time here.
I love this school, from the counselors to the faculty. They are timely and always willing to help. I'm going to graduate this year and jump into the masters program. I've learned so much and the pace is just right. If you need a school willing to work with your hectic schedule, this is it. I'm a full time student and a full time father and it has been and still is perfect for me.
Argosy University Twin Cities is not a good college to attend....PERIOD! They do not support their students in a way where they can succeed and obtain their degrees in a timely manner nor is the main focus your learning and education. Some of the instructors are horrible, will not respond to your questions and they have unrealistic expectations for five week online classes. Most of the online classes require a lot of writing and you are graded more so on your writing abilities than if you understand the content and materials of the class. If you challenge the instructors or staff and go to the program chairs or advisors you will be labeled as trouble! I have been attending this school for two years and on four different occasions my degree audit was done and transfer credits reviewed,re-reviewed,re-re-reviewed and re-re-re reviewed! Each time I was given different dates of completion and graduation. Every time I was close to the time they gave me as my graduation date...I was told they made a mistake and/or I needed to take more classes. The most recent time I was told I would graduate in the summer and as I am one class away from what I thought was completion....Yet again I am being told I need to take two more classes because it was determined and decided that they weren't going to accept some of my transfer credits that they told me they had accepted and I needed to take more two more "upper level" classes to obtain my degree! I would not recommend this school to anyone! Too expensive, online classes are five weeks and not long enough to get a good grasp on materials, staff and some instructors are not supportive of you getting the most for your education and they seem to be all about the money!
