Faulkner University Reviews
Online learning requires dedication and time management. I found many of the courses challenging. Some of the courses helped to ease the burden of those more challenging classes. The instructors evolved with the difficulty level of the class type. From my perspective as a former campus based student, online classes require a lot more time management skill. Faulkner University has its academic challenges but the course work is inline with similar business schools lincluding Auburn and Alabama.
Their online education is deplorable. It is a cheap/free Google platform with little to no features. You are forced to publish positive Google+ posts about the department and school as part of your grade. It is headed up by one guy that teaches most of the classes. He does not comply with university policies and says that since he is in charge of the program and subject departments and the online education department so he doesn't have to. At one point he even admitted that he bit off more than he could chew and was stressed and taking it out on students. I had only one decent professor there. One professor commonly lost work and would forget to grade things and then deduct points from students for his mistakes. When you would question his grading or comments, he would put you off and never address it again. This happened on a term paper where he told me to rework sections of it and he would grade it again and he never did, which caused me to end the course with a C+, the highest grade you could get and still have to retake the class - a slap in the face. Opinions other than theirs were met with complete rudeness as they liked to trash talk the students. Video classes were a nightmare with sketchy technology and riddled with glitches. They added an entire year of required classes the year I joined and then discontinued my concentration/focus the following year so I was happy to transfer. I could go on and on. Stay away from their online programs!
