Bryant & Stratton College Reviews

I am very disappointed as a first year student. I was taking the M.A. degree and was very excited about starting school. When I started they knew I was pregnant and was told they would be able to work with me to continue to obtain my degree. Well I was put on bed rest Sept. 29th and was still going to class up until the middle of October. I was still turning in my work and keeping in touch with my instructors. 2 out of 3 of my classes I was still passing but the 1 I was failing was due to me not being able to be there to complete assessments. So when they started talking about withdrawing me from class, the 1 class I was failing, I could understand them wanting to withdraw me from that. But they wanted to withdraw me from all my classes even the ones I was passing. I asked for them not to do that because I would be discouraged to come back if I had to start from scratch after putting in so much work. And why should I if I'm still passing! Well I go to log into my portal just to find out that they withdrew me from ALL my classes when the semester ends Dec. 17th. I am so upset that I wasted my time, energy, and money going to this school when they don't have anything in place for women that's pregnant and has to be put on bed rest! That just took more money from my education that I could have used at another school that could have helped or had something in place for women in my situation. Instead I got bamboozled to start, instead of them just being honest and telling me to wait until after I have my baby because they don't have a system setup for pregnant women who may become high risk. So Women if your pregnant or pretty far in the pregnancy don't go here because they will not work with you!
I am truly sorry that I started this program at Bryant Stratton. This program is absolutely worthless and in my first and second semesters our class literally learned next to nothing. The instructors treat you very poorly. You will get put down and embarrassed in this "college." This has to be the biggest waste of money and time that I have thrown out the window in many years. What a total mistake. Do yourself a favor and apply anywhere else but here. This college is interested in taking your money (as it is a FOR-profit college) and throwing you under the bus when any little thing goes awry. You WILL be told that the instructors "Don't fail you. The students fail THEMSELVES." None of the course material is neither on track nor organized. My experience here has been an enormous disappointment. I would not recommend this college to my worst enemy. It's a total clown show.
Alright where to start, so wanting to get a job in law enforcement. I knew I needed 1 year in college so I chose B&S location Albany, N.Y. walking into my first class noticed that all the desk seem to be falling apart chairs were hard as rocks and I thought I was in high school again. and cant forget all the pointless classes they make you take and spend hundreds of dollars on books that you don't even use. And when you purchase the books they tell you to get most likely they aren't even the right books for that class. they want you to buy the books though them so they can charge you more. so back to my main course. After studying everyday completing every homework passing the class with over a 90 I was so exited to pass this class with A average the final exam came.... I was stumped it seemed like the whole class was, finding out that Almost every question on the exam we didn't even learn in class so everyone failed the final exam and so everyone was upset that we worked our butts off and the teachers excuse was that we couldn't comprehend what we learned well he must've been right because he's a teacher and they know best. so completing every homework that involved writing a 5 page essay off of a paragraph in the book that was due everyday and the pointless classwork led to noting. so I wouldn't recommend the school to anyone looking to becoming anything law enforcement. i wouldn't even expect passing a class and flushing $30,000 down the toilet for the time I was there I could've went to a community collage and learned more and only spent 5000 so please do your research before you spend thousands of dollars on something that's gonna impact you life forever.
I am the PARENT of a student who is currently attending Bryant and Stratton. My daughter has experienced some of the same negative experiences listed by others and she hasn't even been there 4 weeks. They do rush you into their programs BUT what they don't tell you is how they break down the financial aid so that the student receives NOTHING and is even put into debt unless they of course attach their "grant" money to it. They've forced the students to purchase books ONLY THROUGH THEIR BOOKSTORE and if not they the STUDENT has to go OUT-OF-POCKET because they're NOT giving any financial aid money instead their "grant" gets reduced! They've basically figured out a way to isolate all of their students financial resources and then make them THINK they're looking out for their best interests! They're charging for Master level courses $600+ dollars per credit hour for Undergraduate level courses, OUTRAGEOUS! That's what I pay as a Master's student myself that goes to a Major University and dare I say it, I GET A REFUND CHECK, I'M ALLOWED TO PURCHASE MY OWN BOOKS! My daughter isn't even in the degree program she wants to be in yet, which is Nursing. She's taken what they call "prerequisite" courses, so GOD ONLY KNOWS WHAT THEY CHARGE FOR DEGREE COURSES. Now I know why they're so in a rush to get a student enroll. Bryant and Stratton is bank rolling BIG TIME off of each student!
This college is full of a bunch of scammers they scam people and to enrolling in the college giving him false information and then treat them like c*** the whole time they're there I passed all my classes with a good GPA and they still tried to put me on academic probation the school claims to have good student services and employment services which is false. The teachers were awesome which was a good part the only good part of the school. But anyone else at the school is just out to manipulate you to bring themselves money. Please do not let them scam you. The dean of the school is the worst of all of them acts like he's there to help you but doesn't care about you or anybody else is long unless you're putting food on his table they will turn their backs on you in a second and stab you right in the back anytime any chance they get.
Do not go to Bryant and Stratton in Parma Ohio for the BSN program! The BSN program is worthless!!!! I hated every second, hated every class in the BSN program. I did not have any good experience in the BSN program. The teachers make everything more difficult than it has to be. The teachers all have side jobs, and those jobs are more important than teaching. No one gives you resources to succeed in the program. Many more have failed out than passed while I was at Bryant and Stratton BSN program at Parma. Make sure you read all of these reviews before you sign up for school, they will tell you the real story. If you go to the Parma campus for the BSN program, you'll regret it every day as I do.
Going to Bryant and Stratton College in Parma was the worst experience of my life! Reading all of these reviews on this website and other websites, I don't know why I went here. If I had read all of these reviews, I would have never gone to this school for nursing! Most of the reviews on Bryant and Stratton especially for the BSN program at Parma are very negative, and you should consider them. I have had many of the same experiences as I see on here. The teachers in the BSN program have no heart; they do not care about your learning, nor their students. Some of the teachers in the BSN program will call you lazy and call you stupid. It is one of the most chaotic, judgemental and unprofessional environments a student can be in. I cannot stress to you as a future student enough to not go to Bryant and Stratton for Nursing in the bachelor's program. I regret my decision to come to Bryant and Stratton College for Nursing, and if you come here too, you'll regret it.
Going to the BSN program at Bryant and Stratton in Parma is a complete joke! WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!!!!! Worst experience I have ever endured. I hate everything about the BSN program at Parma campus. I can't tell you enough how awful I felt during my time at school. I did not enjoy any aspect of this school!
It's terrible it's no Good do there they charge you to much I was looking to start my career over but it was high going there they still are charging me for going there I can't get my financial aid back so I can an go to another college I'm trying to keep my cool
As i sit here on my unemployed a** I write this review. I graduated in 2016 the best in my class, highest hesi score in the county etc.etc.,while also having previous laboratory technician experience... you would think that I would have been set up perfectly for a job with all of that education, all those letters of recommendation, my wonderful LinkedIn page...I HAVE YET TO RECEIVE A SINGLE JOB! and I have been a medical assistant for almost 3 years now... not one job, and I'm one of the best in the county! And yes to answer your question, that's me looking on my own, the recruiters on LinkedIn, and the people in Career Services all working together!!!! you would think I'd be able to get a job but no. 3 years with all these different tools and all these different people and Career Services, nothing has happened!!!! NO JOBS. I do not recommend this college. I do not recommend this programme! It is an utter waste of time, a waste of money, and so very very very damaging to your self confidence. STEER CLEAR OF THIS PROGRAM. Seriously... cuz I wish somebody would have warned me. I worked my a** off got on the Dean's List for nothing all for nothing.... just to sit around and collect Social Security and smoke. that's what my life is now... and i am also 50 something thousand dollars in debt!!! Perfect icing for a perfect cake.
