Augusta University Reviews
10 years later, still a thorn in my side. Steer clear of this school. The administration is still a total nightmare. People are pleasant, but every step in every process is made as difficult as possible. Attended for 3 years (2005-2007) and never took a class that related to my degree. Professor quality was half and half. Did 8 years in the army and now I'm trying to go back to school. But in 2014, they randomly made up a $1600 charge, put a hold on my account, and held my transcripts for ransom. I received zero notification until this fall when applying for another school. Tried to dispute it, LSS: If they say you owe it, you owe it. So I said, "alright" I'll just pay their blood money and move on with my life. Went to the business office... they ONLY TAKE CASH and no payment plans available. So to pay credit, I had to go to a website, which doesn't tell you how much you owe. So I had to call and wait on hold for 45 mins to get that. Got to check out; guess who doesn't take AMEX. Why did I think it would be easy? After fighting with the transcript request, I finally got them, sent them to Augusta Tech, WGU, and Uof Phoenix. After all of that, ZERO credits were transferable to any of those schools.
Augusta University is a great university that has a lot to offer. It is quickly growing in the fields of healthcare and cyber security. Both the Summerville Campus and Downtown Campus are beautiful along with the Augusta University Medical Center that is attached to the University. The college is very connected to the community and holds a lot of events throughout the year and offers a very active student life. The population of students and staff is extremely diverse and knowledgeable.
This is a wonderful program if you are interested in teaching Spanish. The teachers are wonderful and helpful. The classes really allow you to focus on Spanish and how to teach a foreign language successfully. I highly recommend taking the Spanish culture classes to help you prepare for the certification test.
The Spanish and Science departments were very friendly but administration at this school was a nightmare. If I wasn't so dedicated to finding answers myself, I would not have graduated. Overall, I was pleased with my education for the price of the degree.
I am a freshman in college, and I know I have not been at this college long, I can truly say i could not choose a better college to attend. This college has many opportunities to begin your career and has many helpful services to push you through college. The college has many sports and is included in many activities that help the community. There is also many events that can help you meet and hangout with other students. I couldn't of picked a better place to reach my education goals.
Augusta University is a great college to attend. The teacher will go out their way to get to know you as a person and if you need any kind of help, they would be there to help you. Out of all the classes I took there as an undergraduate student, the class size made a difference to me because I did not like being in a class with more then fifty students. Overall, if you are looking for a college that has excellent professors and a small class size, then this is the Augusta University is the college for you.
Small campus, mostly commuters. Graduate program was rigorous, but very useful with skill development.
Georgia Regents University HIM baccalaureate degree fully prepares students for entry into the HIM area. It is 100% online so sometimes there is a disconnect between fully comprehending the course due to the typical delayed question-and-answer process. The faculty are experts in their respective fields, but due to the nuances of online instruction, cannot respond rapidly to questions about material. It is not the fault of the faculty, it is merely the product of online instruction. As a full-time employee, the only way I could achieve a baccalaureate degree was through an online program, but I was paying out of pocket and felt that I was not always getting the same instruction if I had been fortunate enough to be in the classroom. The missed opportunity to ask a question about a topic left me desiring more out of the course.
The dental hygiene program was hard but very good. I was well educated and skilled when I graduated and ready for my first job. They required we to make an 80 or above on all our hygiene exams. This was very good due to the fact we had to pass the national board with a 75 or greater to be able to practice as a dental hygienist.
The staff and instructors at the school are helpful in assisting with all challenges that occur during registration, applying for financial aid, technical issues if taking online classes, networking, and etc. The instructors work very hard to engage the online student in the program. Site visits, internships, team projects, and practicums are the best working and networking experiences. The online program is structured, very hard work, but well worth the challenges.
