David - 3/31/2018
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017
"Brandman is a great school. I recently graduated with my MS in Human Resources and this helped propel my career very quickly. Going to school online is tough and challenging. You must be dedicated. The people who are complaining about the teachers and program must not have completed all of the assignments and tried very hard. If you work hard and complete the assignments, you will gain a lot out of your program and teachers."

"This school was awesome working with the GI Bill and Financial Aid. It did take until week 5/8 to receive the funds but One Stop always responded and let me know where I stood financially. They did try to give me student loans which I did not need so I had to fight that twice. It never went through so in the end they ended up cancelling the $11,000 in loans. The professors were almost always awesome except a few who treated lower level courses as if they were for PHD level courses. That was ridiculous and everyone knows who they are. I have loved this school and the social work program department since day 1. I would go here or my Masters program if they offered a MSW (which they are next fall but it is not accredited yet). I would recommend this school to anyone."

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2009
"This was such a horrible experience! i was just trying to get my Master's degree. these people are rude and inconsiderate. At the time the University was being sold by Chapman University out of Orange County and us student's didn't really have any choice. The financial aid department became Crooks and charging us for drop classes. And the financial aid department just went down the drain. This University will find any reason not to give someone their diploma. I got one from the University back in December of 2009 in regards to my drop classes. I stated to them that the class was dropped in time and they were supposedly were looking into it and never contacted. Now 9 years later they've informed me that they're going to go after my taxes California Franchise Tax Board to collect unpaid tuition. Of course now I don't have email access to my Brandman email to provide them with proof that the classes were dropped in time. Of course since then I'm not allowed to get my diploma and have no access to my transcripts this University is starting to be a pain in my a**."

Degree: Entrepreneurship
Graduation Year: 2017
"I do not have a problem with the professors or curriculum. I have an overall problem with their financial aid and end of program conferral fee. This fee needs to be paid to get your diploma. They are a non-profit institution and I cannot figure out why they need this fee. USC, Colorado State, and other major colleges do not require this fee. I know it is not a lot of money but the principle of it makes me so very angry. I do not believe they are printing my diploma on $150 card stock. Be prepared to pay more for transcripts than most universities that includes a processing fee. I would not recommend this school one bit."

Degree: Early Childhood Education

"Brandman allowed great lengths of flexibility which was ideal in being able to maintain a full time school schedule along with a full time work schedule. I started the program in January and graduated later that year in December with an accelerated path!"

Mark Monaghan - 8/13/2017
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018
"I recently transferred to Brandman University. I will complete my BA in psychology in the coming months and I've completed 4 semesters so far. I chose Brandman because it was accelerated, accommodating with online classes, and tuition wasn't too bad. I transferred with 120 units and had a 3.5 GPA, I could've gone to much better institutions but was big on completing this degree fast. I regret this decisions. The quality of education at this school is a joke. If you can write 250-300 words per discussion post you'll pass any class here. As I communicate and interact with others who have transferred to better quality schools I see the quality of education in the way they talk and interact. I feel I sold myself short and am just paying for a piece of paper over here. However, if you have the bar low for myself and just want the degree fast, then this is your place."

"Brandman was a great school. The professors are really helpful and also the counselors. I had my schedule set for a whole year. Even the financial counselor helped me a lot. My gpa increased with this school. I learned a lot and now I will be getting a job in a mental institution. I am glad I attended this school."

Marilyn L. Tidwell-Shoemaker, RN, DNP - 6/24/2017
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017
"Like most things in life, you get out what you put in. This is a good program if you want to earn your Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree. This does not give you the authority to work as a Nurse Practitioner when you receive your doctorate. You must pass the National Certification for Psychiatric and Mental Health test, I had the support I needed to continue and complete this program."

Great School - 5/8/2017
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017
"This school has been great to me and my wife. It has advanced my career and was very rewarding and challenging. I picked Brandman University because it was located on Travis AFB California. Everyone that I worked with was professional and polite. I never had an issue with VA or the funding. I would recommend this school to anyone. Brandman has changed my life!"

Nancy Sipps - 5/2/2017
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016
"Brandman University provided me with the tools and knowledge that I need for my future endeavors in the social services field. The classes were available online and allowed me to complete my work within my schedule. Specifically, the instructors were knowledgeable and helpful when I had any difficulties and provided separate hours for any assistance I needed outside of the online classroom. My only complaint about the University is that my advisor relocated during my completion of my degree and was never replaced. Because of this, though I finished my degree, I was not informed that I did not have the required amount of credits to be eligible for Latin honors. I was very disappointed that I was 1 class short of their requirement and when I followed through with the appeal process to be able to take the 1 extra class, I was informed that the issue was not petitionary. I maintain a 3.93 GPA and was very disappointed that my Summa Cum Laude distinction was left off of my degree."
