Bryant & Stratton College Online Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (61)
In thought by signing up for online classes to deal with my busy schedule it would be a perfect fit. However that is simply not the case with their classes and other areas of their schooling. First of all they are EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE, if you have a community college near you, go there! One semester costs over 8k with half assed teaching and grading. There were times where my assignments wouldn't be graded for a week or two. The whole thing of writing full length responses to other students is ridiculous. Financial aid is a joke, have all your eggs in one basket and make sure you don't need your extra money anytime soon. They acre you over with that, TWO WEEKS AFTER THEY RECEIVE IT, THEN YOU GET IT, IT'S BROKEN UP TOO, SO every nine weeks you could get a check or direct deposit. Book buybacks is utter trash, how do you have books specifically for your school and you don't buy them back? They have students pay hundreds of dollars on books that they won't even accept back. I'm not continuing with them after this experience, AVOID IF YOU CAN!!!
Way to overpriced. Not worth the money. over rated. The online professors are not bad but you basically instruct and self teach yourself. admissions gave a false view of what to expect and what the the process was like. Very pushy and unprofessional.
This school was great! I started my Associates Degree and finished with my Bachelors Degree. The instructors were amazing. There was only one instructor that wasn't available when we needed him but the school made sure to correct that before it became a major problem. My academic adviser was available when I needed him as well. You take away what you put in to your school. I worked hard and in the end my performance reflected that. Their career services helped me with job placement as well, although in the end I ended up finding my own job leads and getting hired at a great job starting at $11.75 per hour and working my way up to a salary that equates to $18.27 per hour. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone that might be interested. It is a little on the pricey side but the flexibility of the school made it completely worth it.
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!!
I would not recommend this program to anyone. Was told tuition would include taking the Cpc exam. But unfortunately it was not true. Now I have to come up with an additional 500 to be able to take the exam and start looking fir a coding job. Don't go here.
I absolutely would recommend this school to anyone that is looking for a school that supports you. It may be a little pricey but it is totally worth it. I have moved on to do my bachelors degree elsewhere but still keep in contact with my advisors there. Although I live in California and they are located in New York they still manage to reach out to me and see if they can help me with anything.
Way too expensive for the quality of education.this college charges the same for medical assistant and the nursing program. I got a financial aid clear slip at the end. Then was hounded by the school for not paying the $100. Library at the Parma campus is extremely small. Grade schools have better resources.
I would not recommend this school to anyone. First off they are last minute on getting there students the information they need. They make mistakes but don't take accountability for that mistake. Secondly, there instructors (at least at the Wauwatosa campus in Wisconsin) don't know how to teach the information or even know the information for which they are teaching to there students. They don't care about the overall well-being of there students. They expect them to change there schedules last minute without enough time because they don't have there crap together. The clinical experience is not the greatest either. There instructors don't care about the students and giving them experiences that will help excel there nursing careers. At the Wauwatosa campus in Wisconsin the dean of nursing who is supposed to be this person who stands up for her students and should listen to the concerns of her students does not do either of that. She, as well as her faculty blames the students for there mistakes and just expects them to fix there lives. Nursing school itself is very stressful but when you add all the extra stress from the faculty it makes it 10 times worse. When I graduated the school was already having issues with there accreditation and every semester there is something else wrong. it is to expensive of a school to have to deal with all this crap. I would not waste my time, energy and money on this school.
The real classes are great, however the education you receive from their online classes is garbage. And if you think you can get away with not taking online classes you are mistaken. It is REQUIRED due to the classes not being offered in the real world.The online courses are condensed so there is no time to learn the material only to rush through the assignments, google all the answers to the tests and hope for the best. The instructors are inaccessible and are constantly changing their methods of grading and requirements for the class. One week all of your work will be 100% and the next week you will fail all your assignments even if the quality of your work remains unchanged. You will not receive feedback and will have no idea what to fix and even if you do figure out what to fix some instructors will continue grading on a "whatever I feel like today" scale. As much as I loved Bryant & Stratton at the start of things I now feel very regretful that I continued with them in to my Bachelors program.
It is true that everyone will have their own experience. For me, it was not an option to go to a campus because I would often get out of work late. Where everyone else was receiving promotions, I lacked the minimum college education, but exceeded the work experience. Online classes was stressful and demanding with posting replies to other students. However, so is life. If you want something, you need to work for it. I worked long nights and every weekend. I took my books on vacation and studied by the pool side. Yes, it cost money and I was fortunate to receive some financial aid and loans. I will worry about paying it when the time comes, but I have a job that will allow me to make those payments. A college degree provides knowledge that one will keep for a lifetime. In my opinion, it is worth a lot more than the money. I recommend taking advantage of the school faculty. There are people in the financial office to help you understand what you will be paying each month.
