Broadview University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
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.
The instructors are there for you.The homework is reasonable and the people there kind.Their are many small classes and its very hands on which is what I enjoyed.The instructors are also flexible in regards to making time to help you out if your falling behind.There are many different tutoring options and a wonderful library with computers always at your disposal with free printing in color or not.The student lounge is nice with free tea,cocoa,and coffe and a ping-pong table along with a T.V. and newspapers and vending machines.The school itself is located in a good location surrounded by business and fast food places.The people here are all kind and willing to help.The staff and faculty do there very best to make this school enjoyable.I enjoyed my time here and when i graduated I truly felt that I had learned a lot.
I entered this university in hopes of attaining a degree in information technology. From the instruction that I received throughout my time at this school, I can say that I was prepared to enter the field of IT. The instructors were helpful and available for all questions and concerns--this was what made this program so appealing. Without question, I would recommend this program to anyone that desires to get into the field of IT, simply because the instruction that one receives throughout this program will be knowledge that can be built on and expanded to reach any and all career aspirations. Although a little costly, it's well worth the investment. Being a bachelor's degree student, the requirements for my degree were sufficient to enter the field in any entry level capacity. From Active Directory to networking principals, the program prepares the student with the essentials for entering the any environment. From a few of the reviews given, there are somethings that any prospective student should understand--this is a university environment and should be treated as such. You are there to learn and expand your knowledge of a given subject area, the instructors are facilitators that are there to lead the learning experience.
I was in the R.N. program at Broadview University West Jordan Campus West Jordan Utah. We were never told prior to December 2011 that the program was in trouble and might be shut down. In December 2011, every student was pulled into a meeting and told that if anyone else failed the NCLEX that the state was going to give them a cease and desist. So from that time on, every quarter, we were all on edge worrying that we would be shut down the next quarter.We started back in school in July 2012, and on Friday, we were sent out emails telling us that there were changes to the nursing program and that we had a mandatory meeting on Monday morning at 9. Then they turned off their phones and refused to answer emails all weekend. What the did was Friday afternoon they withdrew us from all our classes and shut us down. The kicker of all this?? They were put on probation in July of 2011, BEFORE they started three more cohorts. They were told in May 2011 to get an arbitration agreement with another school because they were in so much trouble, and STILL started 3 more cohorts.
Thank goodness the school that they finally were able to get an arbitration agreement with in Spring 2012, honored their side of the agreement. Broadview has yet to honor any of theirs. We are now in school 6 months longer than originally planned, a reason that most of us used to make our decision on Broadview over the school we are at now. They were dishonest with us from the beginning, and continue to be still. DO NOT EVER GO TO BROADVIEW!!!!!!!
I just graduated with my Associates Degree in Business Administration and re-enrolled for my Bachelors. I love this school and can't believe some of these other posts. Maybe its the different programs.
The staff here at West Jordan is always helpful and get things done for me, otherwise I would be lost. I have had a few bad experiences with financial aid and it took a lot of my personal time to get it worked out.
I feel the homework is reasonable and still have time with my kids. Not tons with a full time job and school, but that is to be expected.
My favorite thing about this school is the small class sized. In the time I have been attending the biggest class I had was about 20! And that was a general, my business classes have been 5 or smaller. So you get a lot of help and attention from the teacher.
All in all I think its a great school and I really enjoy my experience here.
