Larry - 7/23/2020
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018
"Run as fast as you can from this school. They are scammers and only care about the money. It is owned by a family of brothers that could care less about people. They only care about making money. Some of the professors are ok, but too many times they don’t show up to class and don’t return calls. The campuses are awful and the support services are better at the local Community College."

"Ok, this is my honest take of this school. I know this will offend people but I have to say it because it is the truth. This school is filled with people who do not have options to go to other colleges. There is no standard here whatsoever. You could have failed everything in your life, barely got a GED or diploma and you will be accepted to this school(because they are only interested in your money). Teachers are aware of how terrible the vast majority of the students perform so they actually give the students answers to tests in order to keep the grades higher than deserved. I can't tell you how many times I studied for a test and when it came time to take it the teacher said "we'll do this test as a class because I am nice". The students would celebrate this. If I was an employer and I saw Berkeley College on a resume, I would say "this is useless, you need to sue the school for stealing your money". You are expected to be a failure at Berkeley so they give you a fake education. On top of all this, teachers in political discussion classes typically are very smug about being democrat and they silence anyone with a Republican view. I was in a class where they ripped on conservative values for like 15 minutes and I decided to bud in and share my views. I was immediately told this is not the time and place for this we need to move on. I literally can't even imagine a worse school. I am pretty sure teachers are expected to remain neutral on political views but not here. I wasted my GI Bill on this absolutely useless education."

Olivia - 2/28/2018
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2013
"The overall experience with Berkeley College was pretty good. The school is mostly a business school and did not have much criminal justice classes like they do business. I took more business classes than criminal justice. The financial aid department was very flawed and I have not more to say about them. There weren't opportunities during the career fair for CJ students. You might have encountered one or two companies looking to hire CJ students, but there was always a process. For the classes itself, you get what you put in. Most instructors were very helpful, and others were not that great. After graduation it was very hard to find employment. After about a year after graduation, I landed a job with a great company that I found for myself and I still work for this company in a leadership role. I graduated from Berkeley in 2013. I'm sure a lot has changed for the CJ students in Berkeley. My advice to you is to put all of your effort into your work. And as far as for finding employment, try to expand your job specifics even if that means looking for a job in a different state."

"Please do not go to this college. You will owe thousands of money after graduating this college. Please save your money and time and go to more useful colleges. This college only wants your money!!! I never will recommend this college to none of my friends and relatives."

Antoinette M. Kassas - 7/11/2017
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016
"Aside from the great curriculum offered through Berkeley College, one thing stood out the most; the staff and employees. The employees will go to far lengths to meet and assist all students. There accommodation is commendable and was one of the most important things for me throughout my college career. Aside from those who worked for the several departments, the professors were outstanding! All of the professors I had too, would go to far lengths to assist, they were all incredibly experienced in their fields and were able to closely connect with us students; no student was a number, all of our names where known by the professors. It was a wonderful experience attending Berkeley College and I would highly recommend this school to anyone."

Christopher Mendez Figueroa - 9/21/2016
Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2015
"Berkeley College's International Business program is challenging yet exciting. The coursework is turned into comprehensive instruction by the professors on a level that all students can understand. The diversity is incredible, with not just students from all over the country, but from all over the world. Students' ideas are shared, valued, and implemented where applicable. The scheduling is also flexible, allowing for evening classes and summer quarters that students may take advantage of in order to accelerate their degree completion. The resources available also provide students with a sense of well-being, security, and reliance on the facilities and resources provided. Students may also take online courses, or even study a hybrid of online and in-person in order to accommodate work schedules and other prior commitments."

dont waste your time or money - 4/19/2014
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2012
"Worst place I have ever been to . The instructors vary from caring and attentive to out right spiteful and negligent. The different campuses are widkey different. And they don't all run every course every semester so if you not mobile or keen on hopping from campus to campus it's a pain in the ass l. Also the majority of the staf are not as vet friendly as they say nor are they understanding of individual issues so if you have any medical problems don't expect any leeway for appointments. And if you need to take a leave if absence I recommend you don't. There seems to be an air of incompetence and favoritism that runs rampid through that place and don't expect your confidential files to actually be confidential. Also if you do go and hate it suck it up because it's a private school so your credits do not transfer to any school you will have to start all over again ."
