FA is terrible at Grantham in the beginning we were taking two classes which was exciting to me then they started making us take one class so boring. FA officer says they disburse half of the student funds in the beginning of semester and the other half at the end of that semester it don't make since to me at all fa officer thinks your info went through the system automatically only to find out weeks later past your disbursement date that she needed to enter the info manually . I wish I never came to this hole in the wall. and I don't recommend that anyone attend here.
I earned both a bachelors and masters degree in nursing science through Grantham. Both experiences far exceeded my expectations. My instructors were available to offer guidance and spark new ideas. I felt very supported during both experiences. I also feel that I was well prepared for the real world and stepped in to a Director role, that without Grantham I would not have been able to do. This is not a university that spoon feeds their student, but teaches you how to utilize resources made available within the school and outside of the school.
They withhold your FSA I will not be returning next semester and I have been going for almost a year I am on the Deans list so I am not disgruntled about them not passing me, I need my money and they are late getting it to me I understand they make money on the interest but this is freaking ridiculous
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.
