Student & Graduate Reviews (118)
Financially and academically, this school is horrible. I have been trying to contact my finance counselor for four weeks now via phone and e-mail, no response until I called today asking to speak to her manager. They manipulated me and my finances. I was told that I would not be paying out of pocket for my current courses. I found out that I infact must pay $3,000 out of pocket, and they also took out $9,000 in student loans after me specifically telling them not to.
I highly regret making the decision to become a student at Argosy University and recommend every student find another. Very unhappy.
I was looking for a degree in human services and ended up taking psychology after my 2nd class found what I was really looking for at another school and withdrew. The other school was a non profit and 1/4 of the price and exactly what I wanted.
The instructors are great at Argosy but my counselor became distant when I wanted to transfer big difference from the beginning. Just do your homework first I wish I had I wouldn't have made a $2500.00 mistake.
I am taking my second class online and everything is going just fine. When I E-mail my instructors they E-mail right back answering my questions. So far I am really enjoying my new school Argosy University.
Argosy has been good for me. Because of my career (job) it has allowed me the opportunity to further my education and not stress me out in the process. My professors have been very knowledgeable and helpful. I recommend the program to anyone who is looking for an institution. A
I have enjoyed my experience at Argosy University/Sarasota and feel that the material and Professors have prepared me for my future career. As I have worked in my field after the Masters I received from Argosy, I found that my knowledge base was well above those that went to other schools.
I thank my Professors for providing a great education to myself and support throughout the process. I would highly recommend this school to others and am now furthering my degree and am enrolled in a Doctorate Program. Student services has always been friendly and quick to answer questions.
I am currently registered on my eight class pursuing a Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA). Since day one I have been traded with professionalism, respect, and dedication. I have not complaints at all; neither from administrative, financial aid, student services, and academic advisers, nor from instructors or faculty. "If you keep on going the way you're going you'll end up where you're heading..."
Every semester I assist to four residence sessions x three days each class at the Sarasota Campus and never had a complaint, as matter of fact, I am truly enjoying each class; Faculty & classmate's professional interaction.
am also surprised by the negative comments regarding to Argosy, but with respect I believe it is an issue of behaviors; "If you don't know where you are going. How will you know when you get there?"
To be focuses on success it requires of knowledge, skills, dedication, and many personal sacrifices... I definitively recommend Argosy.
Horrible staff. The teachers aren't too bad. I went to the Atlanta campus and did the online and weekend classes program. The financial aid, student services, hell the entire administrative staff are just horrible. I failed my first class (was getting used to the online dynamics and my second class I mad a B in, I registered for next semester and about 3 weeks of being registered with all my info together I saw I was dropped. They dropped me after two classes because my GPA was low, but I only took 2 classes!
Bad part was I was still receiving emails, I hadn't known they dismissed me until I had to practically hound 7 people over the phone. Figured it was a ploy to get money.) I am in the process of switching Universities. Bad thing is I read these reviews before I went and said it can't be that bad. BUT I see now they were all accurate. This University is full of bs and completely not worth the time. They need all campuses shut down immediately!
I am currently receiving my Ed.D from Argosy and it has been a pleasant experience. My professors were knowledgable and helpful throughout the program. I had one instructor that I did not agree with or care for due to his warped views, but that happens at all universities.
Otherwise, I have no complaints!! My dissertation committee is involved and readily available, offering guidance and feedback. I am surprised by many of the negative comments regarding Argosy...it has worked well for me and my schedule. I would recommend this school to others, but I would also urge students to find the program that works best for their lifestyle. I've enjoyed my experiences at Argosy University...
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!
Argosy is only interested in money. They have no academic counselors who stay with them more than three months. In twelve months of my education, I was assigned FIVE academic advisors. I was told the obvious deception that the advisors were so great, they were given promotions... yeah right. I wasted a year of my time and over fifteen thousand dollars.
Oh by the way, what ever tuition they start you at, it will increase each and every term. I was given wrong information by the new academic advisor and wrong information by the new, financial aid advisor. BIG mistake going to this school online. I am so sorry for attending there, please don't make the same mistake...
