I started this program in 2012. . I already had a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Business but wanted to work in the Paralegal Field. I was about 2 classes in when I realized my tuition that I had already paid would not include any of the text books. Which at the time I couldn't afford because I was unemployed. The first 2 classes were pretty elementary and I didn't have to take many General Ed ones because of my prior credits from before. I felt like my teacher cared and was very helpful. I ended up going to another school where everything was included in the tuition and did graduate with a 2 year degree. I went on over 10 job interviews and was told I was "too smart" for this job and when I was asked back the starting pay was under 11.00. Jobs are very hard to find in Utah because most law firms will hire anyone with or without a degree and train them in the office. Starting pay is very low. MANY YEARS LATER I AM NOT WORKING IN THE FIELD. I WISH I'D HAD SOMEONE IN THE FIELD TELL ME HOW IT REALLY IS IN UTAH SO I HAD NOT WASTED SO MUCH TIME AND MONEY PURSUING THIS.
Predatory admission practices. I was told that I would be able to transfer my credits when starting the program. I achieved my degree but found that the field was not for me. Now starting my life in another direction I have to start over from the very beginning. Not a single one of my general credits will transfer. This should be illegal.
There were a lot of changes that occurred during my time at Broadview University. However, I feel that the faculty and staff handled many of the issues directly and they were open about what was going on. Never did I lack for opportunities for help from instructors and tutoring, it was actually suggested many times which helped me better understand the material. The program was challenging at times and certainly took many hours of studying to do well in the program. I grew to love the staff and faculty since they always focused on my success even during trying times. I was disappointed at first but have been able to use my skills almost daily in my work. I realize now that going to school rather than learning on the fly was best for me. I also visited the school recently and things have really changed for the better. The vibe is very positive and engaging. Financially it was worth it to me.
If you have an opportunity to attend a regionally accredited university, do so. It will save you money and a lot of trouble. I started in the Paralegal program with hopes that I could attend law school some day. The admissions, academic advisors, and financial aid reps do not have your best interest at heart when discussing the programs. I was led to believe their credits were transferrable to other schools. Halfway through my program I found out it was not so and having already incurred debt for the program I felt forced to finish in order to have something to show for it. Although I did well and graduated with honors, the degree gave zero advantage in my career. I gained better understanding of the legal field by working in it than any class they had offered. Employers don't see the benefit of the diploma from this institution and I'm disheartened knowing all my time, sacrifice, and money was in vain. I am stuck with a worthless degree and an increasing debt of over 70k. My hope is that the Dept. Of Education does something against these predatory institutions and makes things right for students. I'd rather start all over if it means getting a degree that's worth something. Realized it too late. Don't make the same mistake.
Horrible school. I highly recommend veterans like myself to stay away from this school. They enjoyed my GI Bill. It's a crappy education experience. Waist of my time and money. I graduated and have a 3.5 GPA. No jobs anywhere over $11 an hour with this degree.
I was an instructor at Globe University, and don't let them fool you. Broadview is owned by the same people. They know nothing about education. Like all the other instructors I worked with, I tried my best to do right by my students. However, this school engages in predatory admissions and lending practices by making promises that can't be kept. I loved my students and my heart broke everyday that I had to walk in the door there. I really needed a job. Otherwise, I never would have been a part of this place. Please. Don't waste your money. Go to a public community college.
This school is a waste I have not been able to find a full time job with a wage I could live on and benefits I can afford in the last ten years. The school forgot to tell me here in Utah Vets don't care if there techs are certified they usually hire there family members or part time moms that don't have to live off the wage made. Also the student loans I now have screwed my credit so bad because I can not afford to pay them back that I can not even get cable connected to my 2 bedroom trailer that my family of 4 lives in. Please be smarter than me do not go to this school go to a real collage and get a good degree especially if your like me and going to walk away with 32,000$ in debt.
Shut the Provo location down screwed us over royally we had to transfer to the west Jordan location when i asked the broad view administration what i could do they replied quote "We don't care" you think they would since i'm paying to attend classes yet they don't care really? they didn't finish out the year they ended it after i was a quarter way through it! they sold their building space after making obligations to students .... really? that is dishonest tin my opinion now hundreds of us that have moved by the campus now rather have to move or make the commute. with out the fact that they moved the campus..... the board is still uncaring the only people that care are the campus heads and the teachers who most of where let go when they shut down id like to thank broad view university for personally screwing us over next time you screw people over this hard at least take them to dinner.
I just transferred to Broadview from another similar college. Of course they say that there are a lot of my credits that won't transfer in. I fought that and they added a few more that were all of a sudden transferable. I attempted to "test out" of one of the courses easiest subjects. I dang near failed. They have the tests worded so different than a normal test, NO ONE would be able to pass it... not even if an Attorney took it. Complete scam. They also lie about credits being able to be transferred to another big university. I would NOT recommend this school or frankly any school thats like them. They are all after your money and don't care what happens to you. Attend a real school - University or college
In Utah, a degree in Veterinary Technology means absolutely nothing. Don't waste your time or your money. Go to a real university or train at a veterinary clinic. I learned this lesson after $40,000 and and 2 years of time wasted. Not worth it.
