"If a person is paying for a service that service should be exactly as it as sold to be. Meaning the school sold me on the idea that the lectures and information taught would be done so in a way that made success possible. I feel as though even though I am doing well, and currently on the deans list... I have had to do way to much extra research in order to fully grasp the material being taught. It's either too in depth to the point of confusion and irritation or it's not correct. I have personally done 9 exams and quizzes, more but for what I remember, I had to start taking pictures of my answers for proof of what I submitted because after turning in a test/quiz/midterm/final, I would score a lower grade because there were answers that I didn't pick selected. Some tests give second chances, so when I try again and pick the answer I know to be wrong but the previous attempt said was right, it marks it wrong. This has happened to me many times . 2 times with no ability to fight it. Then we have the grammatically incorrect lectures, so irritating. We have wrong videos posted in lectures- like the time I watched a video about butterflies and the Smithsonian, but was supposed to be about the inter working of a law office. I have had to buy books, that's the instructors never have even had us use, or they say to refer to the book for something, but there was never any teachings as to how to use the book. (Law books are confusing) also there's an issue with paying more to work online at night but there's no instructional support at night, and the teachers have up to 48 hrs to respond to a question for help. In the day and age of technology, one would think there would be a text ability, that gives each instructor a phone to use for texting and receiving texts from students. Not all teachers comment or give feedback on what needs improvement, they just expect you to do better. I am thinking of finishing this semester and then finding a new college. The employees really sell the school, I should've know with such a wonderful sales pitch that the school must have issues. I was right. Bryant, please improve or charge us less. Your choice ."

"FAIR WARNING! DO NOT ATTEND HERE!!!! I had to be the one to make all the phone calls instead of the other way around. They never called me, even when they said they would, took several weeks to process my financial aid and kept emailing me to sign documents when I had already signed them, and then waited two days before class began to start admission process. My transfer credits were not evaluated until the day before classes started. I never got my schedule nor login information and when I called to find out what was going on I was ignored. Two days later I called the main campus and the woman talked to me like I was a child and kept interrupting me. Today is the third day of classes and I get an email from the campus director stating I had violated student conduct and my acceptance had been rescinded, but would not explain. I guess calling them and trying to get them to do their job was wrong of me. I will be filing a formal complaint against this school with the Office of Higher Education and the ACCSC."

"This was the most expensive online college I have seen the online experience was ok but the price was outrageous. I have since switched to liberty University and I'm completely satisfied with the price of tuition and staff. It seems like Bryant and Stratton is a for profit college I wouldn't recommend."

"First, this school is way to expensive. Second, I graduated from the VA Beach campus & decided I was going to try & get my BS in criminal justice. As a full time single working mom I was not able to complete even my 1st semester, so I dropped out. I spoke with my advisor & he said that it was completely understandable. Fast forward 8 years later, I decide to go back to college to pursue nursing because Paralegal was not getting me anywhere. I contact B&S to retrieve my transcripts & I have been getting the runaround from people in the business office. Long story short, they say I have a balance because of the grant the school gave me to get my BS degree but didnt finish. I cant move forward with my education because of them! The lady in the business office has told me on 4 separate occasions that she would call me back & she has yet to do so. Wish I would have NEVER gone to this poor excuse of a college!!"

"At first I was a very suspicious about enrolling, I read a lot of reviews, some were OK others enlighten future or current students about their horrible experiences with the college. I have had some wonderful instructors, all who were professionals in their field. Ranging from a Master Degree in Political Science to a Juris Degree. I will admit the timing for some of the projects were strict. I truly believe with any college if one applies themselves and set realistic goals you can not fail. It where times when I was ready to throw in the towel, I felt overburden and exhausted, frustrated, you name it, at that moment I was feeling it. I AM on a path of enlightenment, letting the brightest light lead the way to knowledge."

"I went back to school after becoming disabled from nursing. The classes are not easy but if you just accept the fact it is at least 40 hours if work a week. My GPA is very high and I had 3 proffesors email me letters if recommend action for jobs without asking. Bad part us expensive some liberal arts classes ate simply way to much work for the class and level.Just saying Macro was way way mote then I ever had in a law class"

"Please, Please, Please, consider the reviews here before enrolling. I am so unhappy with Bryant & Stratton. The teachers I have had have been so cruel. I have had teacher that talk down to me so bad that they made me cry. The work on the other hand was challenging but very constructive. They make you give weekly feedback which is a total trap because the teachers read what your suggestions are can grade you and treat you based on you opinion. I have had teachers who have more spelling errors in their assignments than I do in my rough drafts. I have completed three semesters at Bryant & Stratton so please carefully consider your options. I have never felt so trapped in my life. I have a bunch of loans now with this school and I am having a lot of trouble finding another school that will take all of my credits. Now my choices are to stay at Bryant & Stratton with, what I would call borderline mentally abusive teacher, or lose some of the credit I have busted my butt to earn and transfer. Not to mention, when I told my adviser I wanted to be withdrawn from classes (before the new semester started), she ignored my request and now I am worried I will get a bill for the "class" I did not attend, that I was under the assumption I withdrew from. The whole experience is a nightmare I want to forget."
