I applied to this school in 2014 and was immediately accepted which should have already been a red flag. I was interested in pursuing my MFT but after discussing my career path, was told that the master in forensic psychology was the same thing but it would be better because of the forensic aspect. After the first two classes in the program I discovered that this path does NOT LEAD TO BEING LICENSED (which I was told it would and I would be able to practice). WRONG. but instead I stuck it out, being optimistic. WORST DECISION. Lets not even speak about financial aid, or the people who are your so called academic advisors. This school just wants your money. They do not care about you as a student, the education quality was poor, and it was a waste of my time. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CAMPUS IN PARTICULAR TO ANYONE. I am now at the orange county campus and it is much different. I suggest you try there.
I started Argosy back in January of 2015 and I have had nothing but good things to say about this school. The professor will push you to a breaking point but it's good because you sometimes need that little push . All of my professors , (so far) have been understanding if something has come up and they worked with me and gave me extended time on assignment if needed . Overall great school!
The professors are very helpful and provide good classroom materials, my MSc in project Management. The professors were highly involved, kept the class on track, drove us to learn every subject to a greater level. Course work was relative easy but time consuming. Even my adviser gave me some good ideas and when I would copy it almost word for word, just to see a response. the faculty at Argosy were far more responsive to my needs, which made me feel as though they were actually concerned for my success.
Overall my experience was good. Online education is so beneficial in so many ways, as I am not a traditional student. When I chose to go back to school, I was a very busy mom of four little boys (pregnant for two of the years). Without having the option to go back to school online I don't think I would of been able to finish my degree.
Argosy was a good school, but very challenging. The professors were very helpful and responded in a timely manner (most). If I had a complaint or an issue my Academic Advisor/counselor would get back to me immediately. I must say there had been times I was very discouraged and disappointing. For example, I took a break while in school because my mother was diagnosed with Cancer and having issues with adjustment. Upon return I was required to be reinstated and had to submit a copy of my mothers diagnosis. I was also required to take an Academic Writing Course. The course and professor was excellent but I was two classes away from graduation. An Academic Writing course should be required before entering into the program. It made more sense to me and of course they agreed. So that was a money grab! But on the other hand it was worth it in the end. I met a great professor. I would recommend this school but be aware is not the easiest. And if your looking to just get through this is not the school. The professor want to make sure you know the information presented.
Argosy University is a great school! I had a great learning experience that has truely prepared me for advancement in all areas of my life. I feel confident alongside of peers from all educational backgrounds. Argosy truly prepared me to take on roles in both the academic and corporate worlds. I highly recommend Argosy to those looking for an exceptional learning experience that will enrich your personal and professional life!
I have had nothing but great experiences with Argosy University. The professors I've had have all been more than helpful and genuinely interested in the students success. My admissions advisor was very helpful and very patient with me and all of the questions I had when first selecting the program. The online course layout is easy to navigate and I found the digital library to have a lot of great supplemental materials for my assignments. I had no issues with financial aid (other than the normal anxiety of applying for student loans) and I have had no issues with credits transferring or misinformation. Overall, the program was exactly what I was looking for. I had the flexibility of online courses, with a beautiful campus to access as well, faculty that wanted their students to actually understand the materials (Professor Gornto for Macroeconomics was fantastic), and a program where I felt like I actually obtained an education.
After taking several classes I realized that Argosy University does not fully endorse the idea of a "higher" education. They allow people to talk without any punctuation in their online classes. I actually felt discouraged while taking classes. I wouldn't recommend them to any of my friends or my worst enemy. When you are putting forth effort to ace your class and are forced to respond to your classmates who aren't educated enough to use capitalization, punctuation, or grammar makes you feel like you are paying for something that isn't reputable.
Unlike other reviews I have read, I would recommend this school. As with anything you get out of learning what you put into it. I attended online classes and I believe I actually learned more than in a "brick and mortar" system. The professors were highly involved, kept the class on track, drove us to learn every subject to a greater level, and had a wealth of knowledge in the subject matter for the class being taught. I began my education rather late in life and it was a struggle to get back into a learning environment. So when I decided to go get my Master's I was expecting a much more rigorous curriculum and I was not disappointed. However, at no point did I expect the school to find me a job, open up opportunities, or create greater financial gain. I think those things are up to me; however, what I did expect was to gain the tools to prepare me for the positions I was going to seek after graduation. That expectation was met in my situation and for that I say thank you to the staff and professors at Argosy.
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.
