Baker College of Owosso Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
The administration of the school drags its feet and throws you between departments both over the phone AND in person. No one wants to help you. All of the teachers I have met from pre-reqs to my program are useless. Do not go to baker. It is a waste of your time and a gigantic waste of your money.
The college changed its program from an associates to a bachelors, and people who were working toward associates degrees were not allowed to attain them. They had to sign up for the bachelors program or nothing. This was not explained to newly applying students, that the program would be changing. It was a deceptive tactic. The bachelors degree adds 3 years onto the timeline of graduation and 3 additional years of tuition/books/expenses. Some instructors are very caring about whether the students learn the content and pass the classes. Some do not. Those ones who do not care tend to be unqualified to teach (not answering emails 3 out of 7 days/week per their stated preference to do so, talking in condescending manner to students, making multiple information mistakes in lectures, then testing on material not taught in class). Overall, I would not recommend this college. I started here because they said it was an affordable fast track to my career, then they added 3 years of time and tuition on to my goal. Not exactly fast or affordable. Had I known, I would have gone to a different school that offered the associates degree I was seeking. One other note, the online classes are horrible. I would not take any if it was an option, but in order to get my degree have had to take one so far because they don't offer it on campus. Never again if I can help it. I will graduate with a bachelors degree, I just wish I had been given the option to get my associates first, start working, then get tuition assistance from a future employer to get the bachelors.
This college doesn't care about their students. They are only concerned about their statistics - which is interesting because us students are the ones that make the statistics; they do nothing to help their students, will not work with students if accommodations are needed, and the director of the program is rudest person I've ever met. I do not recommend this college to anyone. It is a terrible school, they hold their students to high standards but not themselves. Hypocritical individuals run the nursing department.
