Grantham University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (59)
The biggest thing that hurts my feeling is the lie the student advisor tells you so you will sign up for the college that online you are free to work at your own speed,but at the same time if the work it's turn in at a certain time, you are put out of Grantham and then they say wite a appeal to get back in it's not your fault just work on your time management,so you write all for them to tell you your grades are good but the dean feels as though the time is not right for you.Really so we all are women but because I am way smarter then you and my grades are better than yours were when you was in school and the sad part about it is every conversation I recorded it and every email I keep so I will post those as well
They say it is veteran friendly but they really are not! Staff is unhelpful and extremely disrespectruly. They do not help solve problems when they arise, ignore emails and phone calls and questions regarding status of text books. Overall horrible experience
School is what you make of it. Grantham is not Harvard, but if you're self-motivated and put forth the effort , you can earn a degree and learn many new skills that may help you in your career. I've used several of the topics covered in my business courses in my work. I have no regrets with attending Grantham.
Grantham University is a scam and fraud! Their degree's aren't worth the paper it's printed on. Veterans proceed with caution, these guys will take your money and run! Don't choose them for your education, there are many other options out there. Stay clear, do your research, these guys are scammers! They s****** me over with my graduate program.
This School has been great. The BSEET is ABET accredited. How many online degrees can say that? Not many! I spend about 3 hours on my school work 5 days a week. When I've taken classes like Calculus and Physics, I normally need 3 hours at 7 days a week. The classes are the same as any brick and mortar school. I used lectures from larger universities to help with learning at time and I've compared coursework to my friends at a local university. This school is great! The teachers will respond in a timely fashion and many times the other students can help you in the forums. They do a great job getting class participation and make you feel like you really are in a classroom. I highly recommend the school. Most people complaining, complain due to funds and the financial side of things. I've was lucky and my job paid for it, so I can't speak from that side of things. Good Luck!
I highly recommend Grantham University. I spent three decades in the Military and after retiring I soon found out all the scary badges and tabs didn't mean a whole lot to many potential employers in the civilian world. For many of the jobs a College Degree was a prerequisite to even get your foot in the door. Thanks to Grantham those doors are now open. As an older student having grown up in the age of the typewriter I initially felt a little technologically challenged but the instructors at Grantham were very patient and professional. It is an experience you will not regret.
Read some reviews on here and here's the honest truth. If you're not self-motivation, an online education is not for you. That's not just at Grantham, that's anywhere! While there are professors to help you, it's primarily up to YOU to do the work and research to "teach" yourself. I've doubled up on classes as taking one at a time isn't overly challenging or time-consuming, and I work a full time job and have two young kids at home. I'm down to my last 4 classes and have a 4.0 GPA, and I spend about 2 hours a week doing all the work, per class. Some professors are better than others and will provide quality feedback, while others are just collecting an easy check. Again, you'll have good and bad professors no matter where you go, this isn't exclusive to Grantham. Granted, I haven't had money issues, tuition reimbursement, so I don't know how the school would act or handle it if I did, nor have I had to withdraw for any reason. I do, however, have a gripe that they only allow 2 classes at one time, and no more than 12 credit hours in a 16 week period. I think this is extremely shortsighted when it comes to highly motivated people. My adviser is good at communicating with me, the Dean for Technology was, admittedly, useless when I brought my concern to her about taking more classes, as she just cited the school policy, completely ignoring my GPA and outstanding academic posture. Overall it's an okay school, some good, some bad, but again, that's like any other school.
They enrolled me in administration rather than education, and charged me for a class that I didn't need. After that, they locked my account, refused to answer my calls, and still is refusing to make this bill available to me so that I can go to another school. They were supposed to bill me a set amount each month to be taken out automatically, and they never did that once! absolute nightmare. INSANELY unprofessional.
I'd like to start by saying thank you to the Staff of Grantham for playing a major part in my decision to pursue my degree. Serving my Country in the military, raising a family, and working on my degree was challenging but not impossible. My experience with Grantham (I completed my Associates and Bachelors) was great. It took me a lot longer to get my degrees more so than the average person because I was deployed several times during my studies. I would take a course or two and then stop and start again. The staff was great, they gave me much support, guided me in the right direction whenever needed, and kept in contact with me during the entire process. The Student Representatives were awesome and the Professors professional and challenging. It was not easy and it took a lot of self-discipline and motivation in my part to study online even with life happening. I know some people who attended Grantham had opposite experiences (for whatever reason) and I can only say how unfortunate and I hope that you found what you were looking for if you decided to move on from Grantham. I gained a lot of knowledge from my studies at Grantham that have and continue to serve me well in my career and personal endeavors. For those of you who may be considering attending Grantham please do your part in ensuring you are meeting your part when registering and then of course taking courses. Speak to your advisor early and often and be sure to engage early with you professors if you are having issues. Good Luck! Thanks Again Grantham University.
I have two classes left to earn my degree and presently am at a 3.7 GPA. My experience at Grantham has been very rewarding and although the workload is challenging since I have a family and work a full time job, the student success class I had when starting my courses has been with me even to this point as that class was choke full of reusable information and really set me on the path to maintaining solid time management skills. My student advisors and instructors (most) have been helpful as well as knowledgable with the feedback given to help me improve my understanding of whatever topic I am weak in (i.e. database administration, art, etc.). I had an issue when I started at this University with the financial aid section and was very upset with Grantham on a whole. When investigating further I realized it was mainly my fault as I did not do/complete my part even with reminders from financial aid department and my student advisor. I took responsibility (owned it) and corrected my actions and it has been smooth sailing from that point. From my perspective, the school staff on a whole are very supportive and certainly want to help students to succeed becuase as you succeed so does the institution (school) no matter the name, it's called a win-win situation. Do your part (follow policy/rules) and your experience with college will be successful (overall).
