"Davenport university is a terrible school. The classes are a waste of time and money. Look elsewhere for your education. Attend a real university, not this low-tier school. You will be disappointed. You will realized a degree from this school is not worth the paper on which is printed"

"Davenport University is all about money. They do not care about student success. Their level of communication is also terrible, it is very hard to get a timely response. I would not recommend this school to anyone, especially those who are just starting college."

"I absolutely do not recommend Davenport (Warren campus) do not waste your time or money looking into applying for their program. The left hand never know what the right hand Is doing! Very unorganized, and none caring... there arent any tutors available to help, except for the ones they have online that barely respond to you because they work! L. is no help, all she does is refer you to talk to your professors, but she is suppose to be the one there to help us figure out how to help us achieve, but instead of doing that, she recommend you just drop! How easy is that to do, no how about you help us figure out where the disconnect is, and help us! Do not waste your time..."

"I attended this university with a lot of insecurities. I was a mid-30s parent, separated, and in a new state. Davenport made my return to college easy with night classes, Saturday courses and online courses. Having business professionals as teachers made it all the more interesting and every course was relevant. My AS degree has paid me very well. I highly recommend this school for continuing your college education. If there were closer, I would return again for a higher degree."

"This school claims to gear around adult learning, yet they basically forced me to quit my shop because of the ridiculous schedule they assign students. I had to beg and cry to have them change it, they didn't. They said it was my responsibility to convince someone to switch with me. I do not agree with the scheduling protocol and how everything is put through a random generator (I don't believe that) I am pretty sure they choose which students get the better schedule according to who they favor. The entire faculty is unprepared. I made a mistake making the choice to commit to Davenport. Every semester feels like they are setting us up for failure. I would NEVER recommend anyone to this school."

"Davenport University is a great school with a focused curriculum. Please note that the programs here focus on health, business and technology degrees. If these are something you plan to pursue, this is the place for you. With an ever increasing curriculum, you are now able to get an associates degree all the way to a doctorate, depending on your course of study. If you are looking for a educationally focused campus, this is for you."

"Davenport University is a small college that offers rigorous coursework, diversity, an abundance of student life activities and most importantly a community that will support one to excel in both your professional and personal life. Davenport is committed to helping all students earn their degree and is one of the top colleges in the nation for returning veterans. One will find that professors do more than just instruct classes, they offer continual support and guidance to their students long after a class ends. Davenport University is a Division II school that offers over over 30 sports for students to continue with their athletic passion while achieving their degree. When you hear a Davenport University commercial that says "get where the world is going", they are not kidding."

"Credits don't transfer to legit universities toward either their Bachelor's or Master's programs. If you plan to go on for a Master's degree chances are you will need to stay at Davenport. Check whether credits transfer to state universities before enrolling."
