I love Bryan University! I originally started in Feb of 2017, In April I tragically lost my 20 year old son. It was week 5 of my second term and I still had finals to complete, and a funeral to plan. I contacted my instructors and explained what had happened and asked for an extension. They were so understanding and helpful. I did pass those classes and took some time off to get right in my head. About 3 weeks later I received a card in the mail that the staff had all signed offering their condolences. Jan of 2018 I started back up again. The instructors are amazing , knowledgeable, funny and friendly. They make themselves very available if you need help at any time. The information is very interesting and well presented. I feel that when I finish I will be well educated in my field, and have the confidence to go out into the world and be a successful trainer. I can't say enough good things about this school, they are simply the best!
I absolutely love this University. I have been going since last year. I go online, but it actually feel as of I'm on the campus with all the help and interaction from my classmates, instructors, and advisors. I am glad I choose this institution. The terms are only 8 weeks and 2 classes per term. I am a mother of two and I can keep up so can you. It can get a little rough sometimes if you fall behind, but keep pushing and you will succeed. If I can do it, so can you. Stay focus and the instructor will help you if you need help or just want to talk. Tell everyone , because I haven't seen a university full of friendly, patient, and excited people. That are excited, maybe more excited than you to get you started, going, and graduate. I can't wait to graduate from this wonderful university.
Bryan University is an incredible institution based out of Arizona. Bryan University is a progressive university that allows for a hybridization of completing your degree either through online curricula or traditional on-campus curricula. Either path can be entirely separate as well leading to one being able to pursue a degree best suited for themselves. My degree program was a Bachelor's of Science in Advanced Personal Training and Exercise Science of which I completed entirely online. Initially, I only wanted to complete the Associate's Degree in the same field, but after much consideration, especially the ease at which Bryan offered the curriculum, I decided to proceed directly into the Bachelor's program. The advisors were extremely helpful during this time to easily transfer me into the next step of my educational career. The financial aid counselors were also quite helpful in ensuring that I obtained my financial aid and completed my FAFSA in due time through annual, even sometimes bi-annual, reminders through phone calls and emails, whichever was better for you personally to receive such communication. The professers were quite knowledgeable where most, if not all, had ample experience in the exercise science industry ranging from no less than 10 years to even 30 years as well as having multiple certifications in the industry and at least a Bachelor's degree in a related field such as kinesiology, exercise science, or biomechanics. The professors were always will to engage with students outside of the classroom where they were available through various media in the form of email, phone, Bryan's own message portal, and even text message where most communication took place between students and professors. What I favored most about Bryan University is that its curricula are catered specifically towards each individual degree program you are undertaking, even in the Associate's track. Instead of general education classes for the first two years, even the Associate's degree program had courses dedicated to your field, mine being exercise science. I rarely did anything outside the realm of exercise science that was not in any way related to what I would be performing in the industry after I completed my degree. When I continued onto the Bachelor's portion of my degree, this steadfast dedication to a specifically catered track did not waiver. I was placed in courses entirely relevant to training, coaching, and programming, all of which I would need for my career outside of school. Often times, I would have projects and assignments that would better aid me in my career as they were designed to actually place me in the field such as going to gyms to experience what different styles of gym were like, actually assessing potential clients, and even programming training modules based upon various scenarios as well as real, individual people. The experience at Bryan is unlike a traditional brick-and-mortar institution, but one that I believe should be implemented across all universities. Instead of focusing upon general education, Bryan seems more focused upon actual careers for their students and design their curricula as such. Bryan aided me greatly in obtaining a formal education as well as practical experience of which I felt prepared to easily jump into a career with my degree and experience in-tow.
I loved going to Bryan online, they do almost everything they can to help you succeed in what you are doing. The only problem I had was that they don't tell you before you start your classes that they don't give out financial aid stipends until after six months, during which time I struggled to pay the bills and had to depend on the kindness of family and friends, then I got sick and had to withdraw, so they told me to come back, but since it would be another six months before they gave me any money I might not be able to.
I love Bryan University Online classes. The people that work there are so nice and helpful. They are always there for you and willing to help when needed. The instructors are very nice and do a great job of teaching and making themselves available to you. I would recommend this school to anyone. I am going to be sad when I finish my classes. I would day this is a 5 star college. I bet it is even better to get to go to the college it self. Wish there was one where I live I would love to work there.
I have always wanted to pursue a paralegal certification to see if I would be a good fit for a legal career. I absolutely love the legal system, and finally took a chance on it with Bryan University. I was very impressed with the program's layout, the live class sessions, the instructors, the academic support, student outreach (love them!!!) and the SOS support team (best support department of ANY company I have EVER dealt with!!!!). I love the collaborative environment and all of the free resources provided to me as a student. My program director gave us all her personal cell phone, as well as the dean, provost, and curriculum director. They listen to my needs as a student and are so helpful! The last online school I attended (Strayer University), was a complete and total disaster! They claimed I owed them $3,400 for two classes I never took with them. They held my transcripts, which put me at a $3,600 tuition loss with them. I also tried a local community college, but found the courses to be boring, disconnected, and unengaging. I had my laptop stolen during a home break in, and missed an assignment which caused me to fail the class. My friend's wife started the program with Bryan last year, and will not shut up about how much she loves it, so I had to try! We have a few working paralegals in the class that have been major helps to me on items I don't understand. It's like a ground campus in my computer! I love these folks!
love this school! they give you so much personal attention and are always available to help. the instructors are great and the material is interesting!
