"This school is horrible. Never ever goes smoothly and there are constant problems. Do a search online and you will see how this year they have stolen student loan money and all their students have waited months to get their own money. They have lied about everything regarding this situation. I would steer clear of this place if it's still open."

"Argosy University is a great school. The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. The instructor's where very attentive, insightful, and helpful. They challenged us every week to ensure that we have mastered the material. They truly care about the success of their students. I could not have asked for a better experience. I graduated with a 3.68 GPA. And I'm currently enrolling to take my BA in Psychology and joining the MAPs program with them as well so that I can get a head start on earning my masters degree. I also intend on earning my doctoral degree with them as they are APA accredited. I highly recommend this school if you are looking to earn a degree online, but you must be dedicated to yourself and your future to make it to your end goal and to make the experience worth it. WARNING! Do not even attempt online schooling if you have no self control or improper self and time management skills. You get out what you put into it, simple as that! :)"

"For the most part I am glad that I did attend Argosy University only because getting my undergraduate degree was needed for me to pursue my goal in social work, but like the other reviews the educators and counselors acted as if they were interested in my education only for financial gain. This school was more interested in my tuition fees then me. My problem was when I didn't see eye to eye with an instructor and I requested counseling with the Dean of psychology, they refuse to help me. The Dean never responded to my needs nor did the Dean of psychology called me to address my concerns. I made multiple calls for help but was never replied to, only person who replied to me was a volunteer personnel in the student service center department who act in the behalf of the Dean. I couldn't believe how this school function so poorly as a "so called University". This is one of the worst schools in the Universe. Now I am hearing that this school has closed down several of there campuses, what's going to happened to the current students? This was my fear when I was attending this school. It took me 3 1/2 years to complete my program, I had a couple of breaks in between from health issues but I am glad that I already graduated. I do not have to deal with this educational institution anymore. If you are a student that is looking to get a degree, do yourself a favor and attend another college, especially since more traditional schools have opened up their online programs to make it very easy for students like you and I to applied and get accepted fairly easy. Try a traditional school you will save money and time!"

"I started at Argosy in 2012, I was happy with the classes, but I had to leave due to family problems. Flash forward to 2018 and I am trying to get a copy of my transcripts and I'm told I owe over two thousand dollars due to financial aid not being dispersed, fine I pay what I owe and I was told by the FA office I would have the hold lifted after 24 hours and would be able to order transcripts. Now I'm getting the runaround from academic counseling; the school only mails transcripts, they DO NOT offer electronic transcripts. Don't bother with this school."

"Argosy University Online Ed.D in Counseling Psychology. I am looking for people who are currently enrolled or formerly enrolled in the Ed.D in Counseling Psychology program who are willing to petition the accreditation boards and file a class action lawsuit!"

"Run Away from Argosy University. I am serious. This place is a Money Pit! The Financial Aid officers are RUDE. They find every excuse to take your money from you. They add extra charges, and if you are not careful, they will charge you twice for the same course. They make you PAY tp write your dissertation. You can barely find a decent paying job after you graduate. Look up Argosy Lawsuit on Google. They had to pay money to students for misleading information. DO NOT GO TO ARGOS UNIVERSITY!!! RUN!!!!!!!!!!"

"I completed my degree at Argosy University online in September of 2012. For the most part, the professors were great. I had a couple of rude ones and financial aid was good back then. However, about over a week ago, I needed my transcripts (and still do) and all I have been getting is the run-a-arounds. I was told from the operators and the admissions office that it takes the "register's office" 1 to 2 business days to get in touch with me....this is so NOT true! Its now on the second week and no one knows anything. Between the operators and the admissions office, all I am getting is the run-a-rounds. All they do is tell me to leave messages with the register's office "and I do" with no phone call back from the register's office. All I get is a voice machine. I even contacted the "director of admissions" through email and have not heard back from him either. I am so glad that I went to school back then instead of now. No one could not even pay me enough of money to go to Argosy. They are not even worth the money if someone paid me. Even if I got a scholarship for the whole 2 years, I still would not attend. IF they are this way now, I can imagine how it is for most students. I cannot get an answer from anyone about my transcripts. All I hear is that I am just an operator, so I dont know. They should make it a way that if someone is not answering in the "register's office" that someone can handle calls and situations like this. All I need is for the register's office to answer a few questions for me...and I CANNOT even get those questions answered.... Argosy University is not AS professional as they seem...."

"The school gives the run around when it comes to asking simple questions. This doesn't help with career placement nor any real guidance when it comes to finding employment leads. This school does not live up to what the academic advisor at Argosy University tell you. The financial aid advisor also gives you a lot of the wrong information. It's like they hired idiots to do a job"

"I started classes at Argosy back in 2015. After a few months I left due to my academic adviser harassing my phone every day. In March of 2017 I decided I would give them another try. As a veteran I receive money from the VA to cover books and tuition. However, my tuition counselor would call or email me wanting me to put in for a student loan to "cover books and tuition" when in reality they just wanted more money from me. During my attendance a couple family emergencies happened. A storm knocked power out in the house I live in for about a week and a few weeks after that my mom got sick and subsequently passed away a few months later. During both of these events I let my advisers know. On Sept. 11th, a day before the end of the early Sept. module, I was separated from my classes. I spoke to my education advisor and asked that they let the VA know I wasn't going to be starting the next module the following week. They never did and took the money the VA sent them. That left me with a $1,300 bill from the VA. On top of that, I somehow owe the school $2,400 in tuition that was covered by the VA the prior semester. What did I gain from Argosy during my 7 month enrollment? Nothing. Not only did I never take a class that pertained to my degree, I lost 5 months of my GI Bill to a school that would fight me every time I tried to sign up for a class to further my major and kept packing my schedule with "classes required by the school". Now I've attended online schools before and I know theres at least one general class about how online classes work, but 4-5? that's asinine. I wouldn't recommend this school to any vets. Not only did they screw up my classes, they took money from the VA knowing I wasn't going to be attending other classes. I'm going to SNHU. I've heard they're much better"

"Okay so first of all I have read so many reviews from here. I have a totally different experience from this school. I just graduated with my Associates of the Arts in Psychology and now doing my BA and 40% of my Masters due to my grades. This school has done so much for me and taught me so much that I am now working at a counseling center connected to a hospital. I am an intake worker. The other counselors here are amazed on so much that I know they know the school and it is amazing. The staff, teachers etc never gave me a problem at all. I would highly recommend this university to anyone that wants a great degree. Hats of to this university you did me great!!!!!"
