"First I would say find the job and employer you wish to work for, the ask HR what accreditdations are accepted. If you plan to wotk overseas, I do not reccommend. Reason being it is only nationally recongnized. Next student advisors are only there to monitor your attendance. I was VA (veterans) paid so requirements there means i have to log in so many times a week. That means Grantham will not get paid if i don't log in. So naturally they will call most urgent. When I finally recieved my degree my employer had to verify my degree for the job I was hired for. After many calls to Grantham University, they got tired and stopped trying. I called plenty of times myself. Moving on, I finished in June but did not recieve my diploma till Aug. no valid reason why. During my classwork one instructor gave me a C when all my assignments were at 98% to 100%. I did not understand that but the rest of my classes brought in a A or B. One instructor took one of my essay assignments personally and missed the entire content of the assignment and made me do it twice. Said it was plagerism, when I just made up some bull crap and sent it in. I was surprised that someone else managed to write the same bull crap before me and legalize it. Other papers I copied and pasted and recieved a A. So it was hit or miss. After a while I went to course hero or chegg and all answers were there. Thats when I noticed it didnt matter what I turned in just as long as I stayed active in attendance. Vererans Affairs paid out about 68k just be ause they had to, Grantham took it all and smiled. Now the degree I have sits in a brown folder, mainly because Im black and around my area of town they dont like smart black people. I have been on jobs requiring degrees and find out that many of the employees there dont have them and got hired for skin connections and who they know. I get hired for mechanic positions with my high school diploma paying 20.00hr and get offers for bachalor degree jobs paying 12.00hr. So whoever read this review, if you are military and need VA money every month, this wont work. The GI BILL pays like 536.00 for 9.00hr online, and about 1600.00 for 1.00hr actual classroom time. Grantham will not endorse you to attend another school for that one hour to recieve your full payout. Im a rather smart guy and only went to college to see how America treats vets with degrees. Well they dont really care about you. Most wont even ask you if you have a defree. This applied to me and maybe you different. I challenge any black male, prior military looking for a good job in Texas or most southern states to try to invalidate my review. Good luck guys and be forewarned check out the giant list of regionally accredited schools prior to submitting finanical aid or veteran benefits. Do your homework, and if you still choose Grantham and not plan to become an officer in the service... There is more space under my review and I look forward to reading yours."

Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2014
"Great school. Very understanding instructors for military personnel while deployed. If you fail.....that's on you. The school did everything they could to keep me progressing. I would provide notice that I was leaving the FOB on mission and be provided the time needed to turn in my assignments without penalty."

"I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone. I only had problems with this school. Getting failing grades I didn't deserve. I 'm not pleased with their financial aid officers. This is the worse school I ever seen. Once they get their money from you they don't care about anything else."

Disappointed - 9/28/2015
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018
"If it wasn't for me not wanting to quit this time around I would have been withdrawn. This school is setting students up for failure. As long as they receive their money they don't care if you have the tools you need to succeed. I am still waiting for my financial aid to be process and I am in my second set of classes for the term with no aid to pay for my books and this is my last two weeks of class. But the school is paid so they don't give a damn. So unprofessional and I can't wait to transfer my credits if I can and move on from this disaster. Don't walk run from applying for this school."

"School was awesome, only thing I did not like at first was every time I spent a little time away I would get a new student advisor. Thought I would end up with a bad one but never did. Awesome school......will continue my education here! And would advise all others to as well."

"I hate the school! They staff seems so unprofessional! You get assigned to officers and student advisors and they are hard to contact! They also tell you that your classes will be paid for and refunds disbursement safe on certain days but they actually do things when they get ready. Just an unprofessional school and I recommend them to no one!!"

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2014
"There course work and staff were wonderful. The classes worked great with my work and family schedule. I was able to complete my degree in just under a year. The only issue I have is that I am finding it difficult to find a job without certification as a medical biller or professional coder. I was not informed that most employers want certification not only education. But the education I received prepared me well for the certification exams."

"This school is horrible the only person that will explain things to you is on Facebook . They hold your money like they have to pay it back. I wish I had never wasted my time here at this school they do not care about you or you getting a proper education. They care about their money the questions for work is the same for every class you can write anything and they will pass you this school is a big joke"

"I have found the classes to be great. Most professors are quick to respond and I feel I have learned quite a bit in the last year. I would have to agree with a previous comment on the student advisors. They are not helpful at all. All they do is check in on you to make sure you are staying active. If you ask them for any real help, they just tell you they can't help. On top of that, they continually push back the estimated graduation date. My graduation date was scheduled for the end of December 2015 and they just moved it to May 2016. I'm not sure I will be continuing if they cannot assure me that the date will not be pushed out any further. I do not understand how the graduation date could change for a current student. Very frustrated!!!"

"This school is terrible the FA department does know anything they dropped the ball on my FA even after I called several times they still did nothing until the very last time I called they found it was a system error as to the reason my disbursement never happened and they still want me to wait another 3-5 days this school is the worst."
