Daymar College Reviews
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.
I graduated but. Couldn't go to the graduation at the time. I had a young child and her dad was in town and I was told I better not go so I never got my diploma when I called to get it I got hung up on or I will call you back now trying to pay student loans and no diploma
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!!!!!!!
