Josh - 2/5/2020
Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2022
"I was looking for an online college to finish up my bachelor's degree so I enrolled here because of the low tuition. I was not impressed. I took the c++ course and some of my code didn't even function correctly, but yet I still received a 100 on every assignment. The only feedback I got was "Good job" or "Keep up the good work" and sometimes no feedback at all on how to improve my code. I quit going here when they added the fee for the textbooks. I buy my textbooks for 1/10 of the price Grantham wanted to charge me. No thanks. They also harassed me multiple times a day to sign up for more courses. This went on for months but they finally quit calling. I would only recommend going here if you want an easy degree but don't actually care about learning anything. They only want your money."

"Grantham is a decent school for the price. Just make sure to understand DEAC accreditation and the limits it has. For instance, I graduated with a BA in Criminal Justice but some police departments require degrees from regionally accredited schools. Yet some departments don't care what accreditation your school has as long as it's recognized by the US Department of Education, which DEAC is. So just understand that and be willing to accept it or don't go to Grantham. Personally I think it's discrimination to not accept national accreditation but it is what it is until things change. As far as my experience with courses and faculty, I had no big issues. Just do the work, don't be lazy, and don't say "that's good enough" because otherwise you'll allow yourself to do that every week. If you want good grades, put school work first and get it done before enjoying your time off. I worked 60+ hrs a week and still maintained a 3.9 by getting assignments done well before the deadlines and staying ahead on the reading. It takes sacrifice but it's possible. Grantham isn't a bad school, it just requires you to be proficient at self learning and you have to be disciplined enough to hold yourself accountable every week. Some people can't do that and other reviews show it. While I'm sure some people have legitimate complaints, there's a lot of whiners who obviously couldn't hack it."

J Harris - 1/22/2020
Degree: MBA in Management
Graduation Year: 2012
"Grantham’s course flexibility And monthly starts made all the difference. Huge that there are no additional fees, book costs, or hidden expenses that come out of nowhere. Student Advisors are very helpful and I had no out-of-pocket costs at all. My military educational benefits (FTA) covered everything, and if FTA runs out, Grantham has a scholarship that provides another class under a scholarship, allowing students ya to continue until the funding cycle renews on October 1st. The Project management degree is huge if you want to work in contracting, healthcare, IT, etc. no problem finding civilian employment after retirement."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020
"This is a joke of an institution. When you are the only one in your online class you will know why. Ill prepared instructors who have no idea what they are doing and many are Grantham graduates! Low tuition is not worth it when you get what you pay for. Some classes are unnecessary and counselors just want to enroll you regardless. No one at this university has any idea what they are doing. You’ve been warned."

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019
"I do not like the direction this school is going. The fact is that Grantham has increased costs for students while not improving the courses; if anything the courses have become worse. I used to be able to shop around and get better prices on textbooks. Guess what? Grantham included textbooks for courses in their course fee increase BUT the increase was a lot more than what I used to pay for my books. Grantham has also started using online portals to Cengage and other course content providers. The professors no longer teach the courses - it is to whomever they outsourced the course to. This is NOT a good thing. It means that Grantham no longer charges students for their professors to teach us; it is the contractor that teaches us. If we wanted that contractor to teach us, we would have gone to them instead of Grantham!"

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2020
"This school is an absolute joke. My first 2 terms were fine but when I started my 3rd term everything went downhill from there. I would be withdrawn from classes for not completing assignments (that I had already submitted) and continuously be given zeros for assignments that I had completed and when I would reach out to my instructors and student advisors they would treat me as if I were lying and hadnt really completed the assignments, which would always result in me having to retake the classes. So, I retook the classes and when I begun my 4th term I was withdrawn from BOTH of my courses (for the same reasons) and was told I would need to complete an appeal and send it to the dean of the school so she could decide wether or not I would be allowed to retake those classes. Well, before I could get my appeal submitted to the dean ( a period of 2 days) I was completely withdrawn from the school and was told that since I was withdrawn I now owed money to the school for the classes that they had withdrawn me from and would have to pay for those classes out of pocket before I could re-enroll. Come to find out Im $13,000 deep in student loans that I never applied for. I only applied for the pell grant, the school applied me for student loans from 3 different loan companies without my knowledge or consent. These people do not care about their students and only care about themselves and taking money from people..not to mention this school is not nationally accredited and no other college will transfer the credits for the classes I have already taken due to the classes not being accredited, which they lied to me about and told me they were. Do not attend this school."

not for vets - 5/19/2019
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2020
"I am a 100% rated vet with PTSD and TBI, Grantham university could care less unless its CYA, they are not looking out for vets which means they probably aren't to concerned with active duty. I have been through numerous student advisors who theyre main objective is having their bases covered. I have yet to receive anything from them saying even half way decent job the only time your hear from them is if you fail a class and they start worrying about money."

"Attended Grantham and graduated in 2018. Sent an e-mail to: CMSgt (R) AL VELEZ University Outreach - Government Contracts Specialist University Outreach, Grantham University p: 913-309-4568 ext 4568 f: 1-844-505-8316 a: 16025 W. 113th Street, Lenexa, KS 66219 w: Grantham.edu e: avelez4@grantham.edu Never received a reply from him.

"Active military, I've taken 3 course here and am now looking for another school to attend. Have had multiple " career counselors" and each time I try to communicate with them they disappear and a new one takes there place. currently on counselor number 5. this leads to a lot of confusion with course selection and even what date courses start. just found out next course starts in 3 days. TA requires a minimum of 14 days to apply so that's 2 months wasted. When you choose to not take a course do to outside obligations work, family, etc. they hound you through phone and emails to the point of harassment even when you make it very clear you are not taking a course. Finally my last course taken was a complete joke. week 3 of 8 I realized that the instructor doesn't even grade assignments. I purposefully started submitting wrong answers and still was receiving 100% Also asked for assistance on course work and never received a response. THIS place is a joke and completely unorganized. recommend ANYWHERE else."

"This school is a joke. Do not go here. I was paying out of pocket to go, and had a monthly payment plan set up. I had to pay through the school website. Well I left after 1 year because I found out a lot of the classes do not transfer anywhere! That being said, I left. I was unable to make my payments online anymore so I needed to call and make my payments. I called every week, then every day, talking to whomever and whoever I could get on the phone and no one could direct me on where to pay. So I thought about mailing them a check. It never came out. To this day it has not. Now that account went to collections after I made every attempt to pay. DO NOT GO HERE."
