Disappointed. - 4/26/2018
Degree: Education

"As written early it is hit or miss with the professors and usually miss. Academic advisors will encourage you to take as many classes as possible. Don't listen. Work is way more than five incremental hours per class. If you are working full time 3 classes is not even close to realistic and two can be stretch depending on the instructors. Very inconsistent on how classes are administered and little accountability with instructors. So much $$ wasted. We had one of the 'distinguished' instructors miss two classes. For most of the classes little of the class content is usable in the classroom right away. If you are already working full time the Masters program is a waste of time. It will not help you get better in the classroom. There are better masters programs out there."

"This school has no idea what they are doing. Financial services can never answer questions, their hours of operation are ridiculous, they have very very slow, if any, response time to emails, my advisor is a joke, very uninformed. I am used to online programs. Ashford University was 100 times better. I really hate this school..I do not recommend it at all."

"Brandman has been and absolute nightmare and I would not recommend it to anyone. Most of the professors were great (why they stooped to work there I don't know). The bottom line is Brandman is all about the money and keeping you enrolled as long as possible. The 'advising' here is comical and many of the 'coordinators' openly hate students. It almost seems like the school is actively working against you by throwing roadblocks in the way of getting a credential. Attending this school is one of the biggest mistakes I ever made."

"I didn't realize how valuable the Brandman curriculum focus on Common Core was until I started my teaching position. I am now seen as the leader for Common Core staff/professional development at my school site and I am the newest teacher here. Thank you Brandman!"

"I first started attending when Brandman University was still satellite campuses of Chapman University. I did a combination credential Masters program. I got my credential and finished all my masters class with a 4.0 GPA. I still needed to complete my action research project. I went to work at a prison were it was nearly impossible to run the action research project and they would not work with me to accommodate my situation or work with me on it. Still when it was Chapman it was way better than Brandman. Then when the economy tanked I got laid off and then got a major life threatening illness. Once I got better and went back to work, I went back to Chapman, now Brandman, to try and finish my degree. They made me reapply although they obviously already had all my transcripts due to the fact that I had already went there before. Then they told me all the class I had already taken were not good any more although they are the exact same class listed for the same degree in the program catalog. They want me to take these classes over. Next to get any answer from my admissions person, a Mr. Brooks at the Visalia campus is impossible. When I email or call him he never responds until I keep emailing or calling him over and over again. It seems to me that this place has turned to a straight for profit school not caring about its students just wanting to make another buck. What a shame, at least when it was Chapman there help there students more. Forget this place and its high tuition and go to a state college"
