Argosy University Online Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (116)
Where to start. This "school" is basically just another EDMC college that overcharges and sells you on lies, such as telling me they were fully accredited when they have no accreditation that mean anything. Over the last 3 years I have been lied to, over charged, and threatened when I asked about withdrawing from the program. Through all their BS I was able to finish their program with only my internships to go before graduating. Then they refused to OK an internship sites, stating that they do not meet the CACREP guidelines for internship places. The issue is that all the local schools, some of which are very large, well-known, and respected universities, send interns to these places all the time and those intern go on to be licenced counselors. This school is simply a business that steals from people who are trying to further their education. A quick google search of argosy university lawsuit will reveal all the information I wish I had before enrolling there. Avoid this place at all costs.
Now that graduation is approaching, Argosy University is now telling me that I may not have enough funding to graduate. That is impossible, because the government awarded me $19,000.00 in grants along with subsidized and unsubsidized loans as of 2017. The university repeatedly comes up with numerous ways of keeping our grant funds. I have only received approximately $8,000.00 in grant money. My question is where is the rest of my funding. The balance would probably be enough for me to graduate.
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.
Argosy University is the WORST school I've ever seen. Please look into other schools before considering them. The financial aid process is horrible. You will regret ever attending. If you attend online, you basically are left alone. And you must pay to write your own dissertation.
I think this is an excellent school. Staff is very helpful my academic advisor calls me weekly to make sure things are going good. Doing excellent in my classes. Teachers are awesome and understanding. I'm so proud of myself. Argosy university is amazing.
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.
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.
They are the worst, not honest, greedy university, ever! They are a "For Prifit" institution, so do your research first and foremost! Their courses are rediculously over priced and all they care about is your money!! I worked very hard, for over two years, on my, so called, "Degree"; what a joke! I maintained a 4.0, Honor Society and President's/Dean's List the entire time! I was 4 courses away from my diploma and had to get hip surgery! When I returned, from " approved " medical, I was locked out of my class. I was told that I had to come up with $1,200, in order to resume! I had just went through major surgery and out of work for six weeks; they did not care! A Financial Advisor, Danielle, harassed me endlessly and had me in tears the day after my surgery! Even though I told her "four" times, during that conversation, that I just had six inches of my hip bone removed and major surgery, she was very unprofessional and really didn't give a care!! Total turnoff!! I still never received my, "useless", transcripts, due to owing the rip-off, for profit, fake university money! I wasted two years of my life, studying like a maniac, while working a 48 hour a week, physical labor, job, to end up with NOTHING!! Do your homework people, in regards to receiving a legit and transferable degree program! They are a lying, cheating institution and are not forthcoming to unsuspecting students. I did win a Student Debt Relief settlement, against them! I tell "everyone" to avoid this institution!! Funny thing is, they still send me emails to finish my "degree(?)"! Just go away!!!!
I was so excited to be accepted into this school with 2 points short of a 3.0 required GPA. After starting on 1/12/2017, I became immediately alarmed by the different quality of educational experiences from one of my classmates while introducing ourselves. While approaching my first assignment, I was informed that I needed to purchase books that I was told were already in place and covered by the $99 book fee. Now get this, every book was supposed to be an Ebook that you could download and own for up to 5 years. When I informed the instructor of my disappointment to learn that I would need to purchase books, he told me that my Academic Advisor didn't have a clue about the program. Red Flag!!! I never understood why as a graduate student in a doctorate program would need to practice going online to find scholarly journals. Wow....really!!! What a waste of time, money and energy. Tuesday morning 1/17/2017 I immediately started the process to drop the class and be totally removed from the program. After numerous emails back and forth with the Academic Advisor, I had to ask why was I being met with such adversity when I simply wanted to be removed before the deadline on the 18th. Even as I'm typing this he's still harassing me to stay. It's worst than an insurance agent or resort agent who is fighting with all his might to keep the deal. If I had read these reviews first, I would've never applied to this school. I saw on the internet that Argosy is the 2nd worst online school, and now I believe it. This is my advice....run, run as fast as you can. I graduated from a great Online program from Liberty University with both my Bachelors and Masters Degree. Why did I try something new? Not good at all
I attended Argosy University Atlanta campus online in June of 2015. The online classes were great, classmates were engaged and respectful and the instructors were genuine prompt but there was always something or a feeling of discomfort and intuitive deceit about this school. I attended this school for one year only because the worries about is Argosy a scam feared me to stop attending, but still today January 14, 2017 I still think of it. I was accepted quickly, the school wasn't a school it was a rented space with about 8 people inside appearing to be having class, my advisors were changing and drowns you in chargers. Please If You Are Considering Argosy University, Do Your Own Research Of This Place, walk the floor they're renting, read the fine print maybe even record your conversation. You can't unbake a cake! Be very careful with any school especially for-profit institutions.
