Student & Graduate Reviews

4.3 out of 5 stars
Andrew - 6/23/2015
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014
"While every schools has Great and Average Professors I found the teaching quite good! This is an accelerated program and requires tremendous commitment to learn on your own and be prepared for class. I learned from my fellow students as well as reading material and course work. I had two professors I felt had lost their passion for teaching and it showed in their delivery of material. I was able to reach all professors in my blended course work and felt supported by Administration office. I would recommend this school."

John Smith - 5/11/2015
Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"The program was written at the 3rd grade level at best. My peers were illiterate and could not comprehend the material. I was told by recruiters that they just need bodies in the classroom and that is why there were so many low level learners in the class. The amount of work for one session could be completed in 5 days. Books were not necessary. The most difficult task was trying to read the other student's posts and trying to respond. The degree doesn't lead to certification. Argosy is accredited by WASC which is the lowest level of accreditation. Most jobs will not take this accreditation. The Financial Aid Director at Argosy San Diego is perhaps the most incompetent person I have ever encountered. She preys on military students and constantly pulls the "I don't know card.""

Shelton - 3/4/2015
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015
"The admissions process was pretty easy. Most of my previous credits from another school transferred over well. During my first course it seemed that I was not a good fit for the university, but I had already started and wanted to finish. As time went by I started to realize that some of the instructors had their own policies and if you didn't figure them out soon you would notice a low grade. I have had some really attentive instructors that cared about my success at Argosy, however, I have had some that really didn't care at all and those instructors didn't like to answer emails. To be an inline student at Argosy means that you need to be an independent student that doesn't need any guidance from the instructor. I would like to point out that I did mention to my academic and financial advisors I wanted to leave during the last two years and I was told that if I did I would become a student that is a risk to FAFSA. Since I didn't want to be considered a risk I have stayed. Also, Argosy's curriculum is a joke. I never before thought that I would prefer a test over writing a big project, however in some classes I would have much preferred to take a tests. The LASA's, in my opinion, are a complete joke. Especially when one follows the rubric and answers all the questions and still you are told that it is not sufficient. My current instructor at Argosy does not answer questions and they do not provide any guidance. I will continue to pursue my Master after graduation, but absolutely will not continue at Argosy."

Psystupid14 - 1/17/2015
Degree: Clinical Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014
"The Washington campus is still not APA accredited, the 2013/14 class was lied to by the director stating that their class would be APA accredited, but since the application was delivered in 2014, the APA requires up to 9 months to evaluate & the '14 class would be graduated by then. Very expensive. Major problems with having enough externships & internships & therefore they accept lower quality sites. They advise you to get a wide experience & not narrow your focus, but when it comes time for internship, your're restricted if you don't have specific experience (in school counseling or forensics).a fellow student had recurring breast cancer/death of parent & she was told not to return as she took longer in the program than allowed. Many of the senior faculty do not act with any empathy."

"I am a Veteran attending Argosy-Phx, although I do not like giving bad reviews, I will just say these few things... RESEARCH everything about your program, find out about the COST, stay on FINANCIAL AID at ALL times. however, the professors are awesome, the classes are 5 weeks and it does fit in my schedule. When I was at Inland Empire, they recognized you when you made the Dean's List/President's List, here they send you an email stating they will honor you and never do."

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2012
"I loved my education at Argosy and I am not sure why so many people are unhappy. I finished my Degree and got a good job just like many of my friends who graduated with me. I'm thinking that most of the people who are unhappy are those who dropped out of school."
