Argosy started off promising. The academic counselor was awesome and made sure I was understanding everything. I did notice that the students in my class couldn't spell and most of what they were posting was nothing to do with what was asked. Then my counselor left and that's when the ball dropped. I paid for micro office and the process to get it was ridiculous and after four classes I still never received it. Trying to get someone from financial to call me has been a nightmare. I have never been to online school before and was told I would spend about 20 hours a week on homework and reading. The amount of reading was way more then twenty hours and the assignment that followed was a waste of time. The posts are very hard to reply to because the other students had no idea what they were talking about and most I couldn't even understand. After my fourth class I decided I had enough. This online school says it has all these resources like tutoring but they don't. Also when I asked any of my professors questions about assignments they never responded. If they did which was twice, it was like a robot message. The introductory classes are such a waste of money and time. Please don't be fooled by there motivational speeches. They are what they are, for profit.
This school is awesome , my advisor was such great help he lead me through the whole enrollment process. He is very motivational and has high hopes for his students , I have yet to start my online classes but by the looks of it I already love that the online classes provide tutoring and all other tools to help you become successful.
VETERANS BEWARE! This school, particularly S. A. and J. P. will not help you through the process. They're only concerned with the numbers. They both let my husband start without having the proper paperwork filled out. S. promised him grants if he started right away then stuck us with a 4000$ bill. The second class he was not even able to finish because S. and J. had not filled out the proper paperwork. However, they discontinued my husbands class AFTER the drop out date. Convenient? I think for them. Then they were less than helpful with payment options. Please stay away from this FOR PROFIT school. It's nothing but trouble. Proceed with caution.
Argosy University is an amazing school. The teachers are very helpful and understanding. I was honored to make president's list and recieve a certificate. I would recommend this school to anyone looking to move further in there education or career. 5 stars to this school.
My undergrad experience at Ashford was so wonderful, and then I arrived at Argosy. What a great big disappointment. The worst part about Argosy is the professors. They are all so obviously there to collect a part time job paycheck. They aren't friendly, helpful, or mentoring. One even sent out the entire class a bizarre rambling email that mentioned he was high on painkillers. LOL. Then, there are all the Argosy polices. Policies on top of policies. The one I found the most disgusting? That even if you're in the hospital they still charge you for the course you had to drop. There is no refund unless you file an appeal and that rate of success? Dismal. The school sucks. I won't be working on my doctorate there.
Argosy University is an awful institution. After working and consistently paying on my payment plan, Argosy still screwed me over. I was set to graduate during this commencement. I was e-mailed and told 2 weeks prior to the commencement that per their policy I still could not graduate. This institution is some cut and I would never recommend that you attend. If you do so, do not believe what they tell you about the experience you can expect because everything that they are saying is only to get you in there. I wish I had listened to my mother and attended Bowie State University. Do yourself a favor, do not attend this institution where no one keeps their word.
I really enjoyed the classes at Argosy and was very happy that I was able to complete my internship at a school over the summer as I worked at a Department of Defense school in Germany at the time and could not do the internship during the regular school year. Argosy instructors were extremely supportive and former counselors who gave me real world skills I could use immediately when I eventually became a guidance counselor.
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.
I am writing this review because I am upset with the financial part of my online education with Argosy. I am uncertain if the financial aid that I did use go towards classes that I took and not retakes. Even though they told me financial aid doesn't cover retakes. On my account summary it's classes posted that I haven't taken. And it makes it confusing as far as did my financial go towards classes I didn't take considering I have been told I exhausted my financial aid. I haven't attended class since December 2013 because they told me I ran completely out of funding. I requested reaffirmation through my Fed loan servicing provider. They reviewed their data base and said I had money left. I called Argosy they told me oh yea.. You have $3,000 left. I already emailed compliance who financed my loans to go over my account at the school to make sure the money went towards what it was suppose to go to and to make sure it didn't cover retakes or any of the classes I haven't taken yet. Hopefully I get answers because it's looks like I'm at an over $20,000 out the pocket cost to finish.. I have used $57,000 already is what they saying for classes I have taken and still no degree. I'm very disappointed and upset. Kind of lost respect for the school where my finances are concerned. I take full responsibility if I'm wrong and I will just have to make away to pay. But, I should have to come out my pocket if funds were mismanaged.:(
Argosy University is a great school. I can work at my own pace without having to worry about sitting through long lectures. I enjoy the convenience off my schedule. I sign on, do my work then im back to taking care of my three children. Online classes are easier for people who are uneasy with the though of being in large class rooms for hours surrounded by over 30 people. Online classes give me the sense of one on one. I interact with my peers but I still have my own voice. I have been attending Argosy University since May of 2011. I am pleased with the experiences, classes and people Ive met. I will continue to strive until my graduation date.
