"When enrolling they said I would get a free laptop, it is not free they use your pell grant money to purchase it. The laptop they bought did not work with the computer program they require you to take. Halfway through my degree they stopped supplying books for two of my classes and then would have me pick them up in week 3 out of 6 weeks. The one teacher that was excited to teach and was great left in week two she was not replaced until 3 days before class ended. I had two other classes that did not have a teacher for over half the time. There is no real feedback from instructors. No one at the school ever answers the phones. They will also steal your federal pell grant money, I have been requesting my money since 2021 and officially graduated January of 2023. I have been informed I may not ever see this money that was never there’s to use in the first place. An absolute disgrace of a school and needs to be shut down permanently."

"Execrable financial services, holding thousands of dollars in grants that should go to the students and releasing the checks after the end of the quarter. Lousy cash-and-carry attitude from the upper management staff, although the academic staff is great and friendly. Great dean of students, who gives the impression he's overcome many obstacles in life. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME FOR CLASSES REVOLVING AROUND WASHED-OUT BOOKS AND YOUTUBE VIDEOS!!! For that much money wasted, open your own business in whatever field, you will be better off than in a lousy job you could get with this "degree" - which I assume is pre-printed. HELL, go pick up pennies on the Walmart parking lot for 4 years, you'll make more money and be more marketable than if you show off with your "degree". DREADFUL environment for veterans, in my case I felt like livestock waiting to be discarded once the milk dries out. Terrifying atmosphere at the Clarskville Campus that seems to be the new acting headquarters of the group of schools for the region: if you are looking for decadent Rome where some kind of aristocracy doing squat all day will laugh at you if you have an issue or tell you they "shot an email to someone else about your case" - and if you like this lousy environment of bread and games, except their is no bread and you're the game, then this school is right for you. But if you expect something from higher education, run away. Take a trip to Europe with that money, Antarctica, wherever, you'll learn more that way."

"The Paducah campus was a joke. Only 1 person in the billing and coding class went on to do this type of job. If you tell an employer where you went to school, you are done. Employers don't consider Daymar as an adequate school. I have paid and paid and paid student loans for over ten years. Still owe more money. I am 68 yrs old. I hope I live long enough to see my student loans paid off."

"If you go here, don't expect anyone to help you. While the teachers try to help out online, the rest of the faculty will ignore you. I have had nothing but issues the past three years. I have had continuous issues with financial aid, and the financial aid office is always "unavailable." If you call and ask for someone specifically, they say they are out of office. If you have an issue with a program that has nothing to do with your computer, then they won't know how to help you. If you are willing to spearhead your own education without help from others, then this college is for you."

"I have on record the DOE saying that their goal is not to recruit anyone to take part in programs at daymar and that once the student has a loan from the government to assist in tuition the administration's job is done. I've waited two years for the job in a bank I was promised and all I get is excuses from the dean , if I could rate this school zero stars I would have a long time ago."

"Started off great with great instructors but after they were sold the whole place went down. You basically set in classes and they watch you do your work online. I asked my English instructor for help with an assignment and she told me to google it. One of the CJ instructors was a former cop. Did nothing but tell stories. I had one lady who really took an interest in the students and would help me with other classes as well. She was great. Classes only had 2 or 3 people in them."

"Started out really good, thought I was getting what I needed. My program director changed and then the whole Medical Massage Therapy program went down the drain. When I tried to complain to the Dean all I got were excuses and the President would ignore every effort. Do not go to Daymar for their MMT program..... Update after trying to get things sorted out. I was told that after having a woman faculty member touch me on my chest. That I had blown it out of proportion because she just touched my bra strap because it was showing. Sorry but my straps are on my shoulders not my chest. I will let my credit suffer by not paying a dime."

"This place is a RIP OFF!!! I attended ONE semester and left after seeing the poor quality of the facilities and the quality of education offered. Class rooms had FANS to try and keep the room cool, the classes were of no value and were more in line for middle school, let along college and the instructors spent more time babysitting than teaching. ADDED TO THAT, they are attempting to collect for money I did not get"

"I went to Daymar In Louisville to study medical assisting and I graduated with a certificate in 2012. The two campuses in Louisville closed down about two years after I graduated. The only ones that remains open (for now) is Owensboro & Bowling Green. I was never under the impression they would find me a job but they did send me job leads but the issue was to be hired as a medical assistant they want 2 to 3 years of experience and be certified and that's what they don't tell you. How are you going to get experience if no one will hire you??? Thank God I didn't go for the diploma or associates degree, total waste of time and extra money cause you won't get a job as a MA, they want experience no matter if you have a certificate, diploma or associates and I'm not sure if they still offer the certificate program anymore. In a few weeks I'm starting my first job as a MA at the local health department 5 years after I graduated and they don't require certification or experience, they do on the job training ( at least at the health department they do). So did I waste my time at Daymar? No but it took 5 years before I got a job as a MA. For profit colleges get a bad rap but I'm proof that some good can come out of it, it's not all bad."

"This is not a place to receive higher education, period. This is a place to show up, sign in and get a degree for 30 thousand. This place absolutely won't prepare you for any IT field. Low quality, high cost. Terrible, terrible, terrible. I finished my program and successfully broke into IT by myself. This place has no valuable input on how to do this."

"I agree with Daymar being a diploma mill. They have poor instructors. They make you pay for books you never crack open. I'll be paying for years on a student loan for a diploma that is essentially garbage. Do yourself a favor and find a better school."

"Daymar is just a diploma mill. My mother attended this school when was Draughons Junior College and had a great experience. She told me how wonderful all the teachers and administers were when she attended. After hearing me complain about some of the experiences I was having, she decided to come to school with me and check it out. She was horrified and could not believe how the school is been run. I decided to finish out the semester since I had already spent so much money but I'm not going back next quarter. I I told them I didn't want e-books that I had trouble learning and that I didn't want to take any online classes and they kept trying to make me take them over and over. I am not doing well in those classes but I can't get any help . This school is a joke now. Save some money and go to a real schooll."

"A lot of time wasted. The curriculum and teachers are nice people who work in the industry and all. Please please please please please. Just go to Austin Peay and spend half as much. A Daymar Degree is useless! Please go to a Locally Accredited college not Daymar with their for profit accreditation agency. DON'T DO IT!"

"Do not waste your time with this scam of a school. The degree in Medical billing and Coding is worthless. Employers will not respect a degree from Daymar, which has a reputation of being a diploma mill in the business community. You will run up debt that will be very difficult to repay. You will wind up working at a job you hate just to pay student loans back, or you will have to go to a respected school, which will be cheaper, and earn a degree you can use. None of your credits will transfer either!!!!!!!"

"This has to be the worst experience I've ever had with a company. I should have known something was wrong when one day, Daymar in Nashville, switched teachers around to different classes the day before auditors were coming. So, they had teachers in classes they weren't qualified to teach. While I was there, I was in Criminal Justice for a semester but they started a new HR program so I switched to that. In many classes, we either watched movies or had homework assignments where they give you all the answers. We learned NOTHING. There were a few teachers that genuinely cared but many did not. Back to this HR degree, they had a list of jobs you can get with the degree but it was all lies. Yes, I should have done my research, as the college would never tell you that an Associate's in HR isn't worth the paper it's printed on. I checked with HR professionals at Bridgestone and Nissan among others and all said it was worthless and a bachelor's was required to get a position in HR. Daymar didn't have a bachelor's program for HR but tried to encourage me to get a bachelor's in Business Administration. Not only that, they cancelled the HR program shortly after I left, which tells they KNEW it was worthless. When I graduated, the only jobs the counselors could find were working at Advanced Financial, a telemarketing firm, and a debt collection agency. Nothing that had to do with my worthless degree. A little while after I graduated, both counselors were fired at the same time. A lot of shady and suspicious things went on there. Their credits didn't even transfer and most other colleges don't acknowledge them. It's not surprising they have had lawsuits brought against them. They tell lies to get people in and dump heaps of debt on them. People that are poor trying to get an education to improve their lives not make them worse. Not one person I graduated with found a job with their degree. I haven't even said anything about how they force you to buy their textbooks for hundreds of dollars and oftentimes offer $1 when you sell them back at the end of the semester. Stay clear of Daymar and do your research before choosing a college! You can do better somewhere else!"

"This "college" was the biggest joke. First of all I am pretty sure they just went around to local Wal-Marts and asked people if they wanted to be teachers. They have no clue what they are talking about. I went there for one semester before I just couldn't handle it anymore. I learned nothing about running a business, the only thing I ever did was listen to my nut job of a "teacher" spout off random and not even true facts about politics. Also they treat you like children, if you miss a class you better expect about four phone calls a day wondering where you were. And if you miss one week of school they kick you out. so do not plan on going on a vacation, funeral or family holiday. Also I was talking to my boss at the company I work for and she said that if she got a resume and they graduated from Daymar she would laugh and throw your application out. Nobody in any profession takes this school seriously. Oh and also they don't tell you about the nice $1,500 dollar fee they charge you for leaving the school before you graduate. I can't express what a dumb decision going to Daymar was. Please do not waste your time and money on this joke of a school."

"I decided to go back to school almost 20 years after I graduated high school, so I was really nervous and unsure about my options. The staff at Daymar really helped me to understand what my options were and encouraged me to follow my dreams. I had so many questions in the beginning and the staff was always available and eager to help. I have just graduated with an Associate's Degree in Paralegal Studies, and while I do have school loans to pay back, I would have regardless of what school I went to. My mother has the same degree in the same program that I have and her loans were almost as much as mine AND she has half of the credits. Most Associate's Degrees are 64 credits and mine is 104. Also, with online courses, you will do three times as much work as someone that goes to a campus. It has been a WONDERFUL experience for me. The staff has been amazing from start to finish and I am looking forward to what my future holds. I highly recommend Daymar College!"

"I just started at Daymar and never had so much trouble with a school before. They gave me the run around about my financial aid and I was told 20 different things and had to fill out different papers. The teachers don't care about you. I can't get into the myitlab and asked for alternate assignments and only got them for two weeks. I'm glad i'm leaving this piece of crap school!!!"
