"This school is nothing but a rip off. They take your money and lie to you. The books unbelievably expensive. No one ever calls you back. One email will tell you yes you can take the class, the next one says, oh sorry, you can't. not till next semester. there is no way to get out of school on time, they keep you trapped. They work against you with financial aid. It's not a what you think you are getting. I could go on and on about how disorganized some of the professors are...but I don't want to waste any more of my time. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY. ITS A RIP OFF"

"Tell us about your college experience.I apllied to Excelsior Colleges Associate of Nursing program because I was a single mom and worked full to part time. Already being an LPN, I didn't want to repeat a lot of classes and taking exams for college credit sounded good to me. I was nervous, having read many bad reviews, that the college is a "Scam" and that its a "Degree Mill". Heres what I found out. Its a lot of hard work to pass the final exam true, but guess what? They give you a complete road map to success and are there for you via telephone, email, and discussion board. I feel bad that the college gets a bad rap by people who were unsuccessful, its a wonderful program, and when I completed my courses, I could more quickly identify priority care needs and assessments patients would require than nurses who went to the full 2 year programs. If it Were a "Degree Mill" people would be complaining that they didn't get one. Makes sense, doesn't it?Would you get the same degree if you could start over?I would absolutely choose the ASN program again, in fact, Im continuing on with Excelsior to their RN-MSN program.What advice can you offer other students?Pick a degree path that is marketable."
