"This school is absolutely ridiculous. They do not care about the student. They continually mess up financial aid every single term and will not even respond, every class has different due dates and its different each week. This school is not designed for those who work and try to go to school."

"Please do not attend this for profit corrupt school. They are very unethical. You do not learn much the instructors do not care to much and the school has kept financial aid money of mine and I'm in the process of trying to get it and dealing with DOE. Everyone seems to care at first about you and help but after you get through the first few classes you will not get return phone calls from finance counselors or academic counselors. STAY AWAY! Go to another school"

"This school will say anything to get you to enroll, then lives up to none of its promises. They are very quick to process your tuition, but once you're enrolled, it's nearly impossible to get a return phone call, the classes are sub-par (at least the 1 I took). I only made it through 1 class and I left to enroll in another school. The entire experience felt like an extreme "used car salesman" day...flim-flam."

"I started attending Argosy back in March of 2014. It has been nothing but hell for me, excuse the language. When I was first signed up, I was just looking into the college, because my aunt was attending online. I had told the guy that I just wanted information about the school. In the process of telling me about the school, he signed me up anyway, without me knowing at first. Now here I am almost 2 years later trying to withdraw do to the stress that it has been causing me. The manager over my academic counselor lied to me yesterday saying that I could go onto the campus common and find a immediate withdrawal form, then hung up on me. When I went onto the campus common and could not find it, I called Tech Support who informed me that there was no such thing. When I tried to call the guy back, he did not answer and did not bother to call me back. I will never ever recommend this school to anyone. They ripped my aunt off first, then they ripped me off. If I have to sue them, I will. I do plan on withdrawing from this school and I will never go back."

"No one should suffer through this school. The courses are poorly organized, staff is there because the can't get jobs at a real school and their finance department is incompatent. Run from Argosy don't waist your money or time. Their staff lies to students about the cost of programs, time limits for program completion and Argosy has a terrible reputation for poor quality."

"This school is expensive but it is also rigorous and prepares you well. I had regular contact (monthly) from my financial adviser and academic adviser. I did get a new financial adviser part way through but it wasn't a big deal and they did just as good a job as the first one. I had regular contact with my classmates and professors during classes. There was a lot required and although most classes did not have quizzes (a couple did) they did have discussion posts, responses, and papers that were required and the papers were generally long. A final paper that is around 15-20 was usually required towards the end of the class which really made you think about the class as a whole. I see a lot of negatively; mostly with either communication issues or financial aid which surprises me because those were both great. I got contact even when it wasn't needed and financial aid was standard; through the DOE. I can see where you may have issues if you you've defaulted in the past with DOE but otherwise the whole process was very standard and comparable to every other college I have attended (this is my doctorate so I have attended 3 other schools previously and all were the exact same process financial aid wise)."

"Being that I am a single mother with a full time job, having the access to a University degree online when I could find the time to work on school without sacrificing money from work or time with my child was the most beneficial. The classes were interesting, the instructors were always there to help if needed and tutoring was always open to me. I could have taken classes at the school but online at home was the best option for me."

"The school lures you in with such a caring nature. But once you are enrolled, you get a quick stipend to appease you. Later you may find yourself locked out of class. Now they have decrease the amount of classes to only one every five weeks, this sets you up for failure.As you progress the classes dwindle down to two to three students, and the faculty get an "impatient" attitude when you attempt to ask anything about your finances. Lo and behold, the tuition keeps increasing, and is now $1620 per class! Stay away! I am exploring a transfer as we speak. I have a GPA above 3.5 nd take my education very seriously, however the faculty don't seem to, with the exception of a few that really care!"
