Daymar College Reviews
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!
Daymar College in Clarksville is the best campus! Friendly staff, vibrant students and a new name same great quality! If you work hard youll do great! They care about you and your education
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!!!
I went to Daymar 3 years ago. I only attended for not even 6 weeks. I left because they were trying to charge me 800 a month when all the other students were only paying 100. I left and ever since they have been harassing me with collections ,threatening to sue me. You name it. they said I owe them over 4k when I didnt take out a loan or a grant. So this school is horrible They don`t care about you or your education they only want your money.
When I started at Daymar, I worked in a restaurant, lousy hours, lousy pay, worked nights, holidays and weekends. 1 1/2 years at Daymar changed all that. I obtained a professional career with good pay, good hours, with weekends and holidays to spend with my family. Did getting my degree grant me a job? NO. Just because you get a degree, (and it doesn't matter what college you go to) isn't a promise to have a great job waiting for you. YOU still have to have some ambition to go out and find that job. It took me a while, but I found a great job I've now been at for 10 years.
It will take me years to recover financially. They ruined my life and my family's chance of being secure financially.
Here is my opinion. They care about the money. Not the students.
They are not operated by reputable people that care. It is all words to decieve you.
They say they 'change lives one person at a time' They sure do.
They put you in deep debt and give you a degree with nontransferrable credits and that employers laugh at.
They take away your future and your kids future.
They take all your grant money and file loans for you and you end up paying back loans you didn't even know you were getting.
They have many ways to get your money while you go deeper and deeper into debt. Books, supplies, scrubs are all overpriced and you have to buy from them.
Many instructors seem frustrated and do not know how to or maybe want to teach. They talk about themselves or read from a book or just tell you to start reading and check in once in a while.
They put out little effort to help you get that good job they told you about. Good luck paying back the loans on the low paying job you might be lucky enough to get and no way you will be able to pay rent and food and bills much less get anything extra for your kids.
Please do not go to this school. This has happened to me. When I started I took four classes where the same teacher which was teaching the main course for my field. He would come in class start talking about his weekend and then proceed to talk about his plans next weekend. The going through the book he would flip through book telling me that I do not need to know this or that. The book is 3000 pages and he only talked about 700 of those pages. It was like that with the next four classes.
It was so bad that the last to classes all the students dropped but me. So after complaining to the school they did nothing. I sent a letter to the ACICS. They told the school that he is to be pulled from the program. Still the damage is done. Four classes where I learned nothing. I was told that they would provide help before I take the exams. How ever they did not provide that help. I was also told by a fellow teacher that the books for the program will make me fail the exam cause there is not enough information in the book itself. This is not a good school. There in it for the money and not for giving students an education.
