"From the moment I stepped on campus I knew I chose the right college. Harrison provided me with the skills and determination that I needed to go back to school and earn my degree. The staff was very supportive and my student affairs specialist helped me whenever I had questions. This was the best decision I have ever made."

"This school lies about transferring credits. Once you're in you are stuck. Nobody accepts their credits! The staff were hired and fired quarterly and they completely mishandled everything. Teachers were totally ridiculous. Excell teacher denied answers from the book and complained about the amt of homework she had to grade. Another expected us to learn an entire payroll software program and be able to take our final exam within one hour. Accounting teacher decided to try and save me money by just copying answers out of his book and gave that to me! I cannot express to you enough; Please stay away from this place!! I still owe on my loan and have nothing to show for it!"

"They don't care about the students. Just want they're money. You tell them you have a 3 year old with another on the way and they still wanna try to garnish wages even if you only work part time. They'll tell you at the beginning you have enough aid to cover everything then expect you to pay 300 or more out of pocket when that runs out. And when you can't do that they come running for they're money."

Very Dissatisified Student (Customer) - 4/3/2015
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017
"1. I did not receive my book for Anatomy 1 class 2. The tutor I was set up with would not speak with me and this was not much help at all resulting in failure of classes I was having a hard time in. 3. My grades were not updated for several weeks during the Computer literacy class, giving the impression that I was failing 4. Upon extensive research, I was not given the credit deserved when finding a discrepancy within a test in Anatomy 2 5. Upon extensive research (and not having the book) I found discrepancies in tests in Anatomy 1 that were never explained to me, but simply stated that I was wrong and the instructor was right. 6. I entered the college with the understanding that the instructors and the staff were aware that most of the online students were working adults with responsibilities outside of school, however, during week 11, in the Anatomy 2 class we were loaded down with extra work plus the due final test. This made it impossible for me to complete the course, resulting in a failure of the course because I was not able to complete the required assignments on time. This was not the case in any other class, even during the Christmas holiday week. 7. Everyone I have spoken with says they are taking me seriously, but they have never addressed even one issue with a solution. 8. My grades have not been updated for Anatomy 2, even after having asked about this several times to several different people. 9. I have been lied to by several Harrison College associates about the course syllabus that Ms. Smead has put into place, stating that late assignments were not to be graded at all. 10. I was told that according to school policy, my late assignments could not be graded because they were turned in over 14 days past the due dates, even though they were turned in 6 days past and another was 7 days past. Assignment due March 4, turned in March 11, 2015 Assignment due March 11, turned in March 17, 2015 11. I was led to believe that the students at Harrison were encouraged and assisted so that they may pass the courses, but I do not believe this is the case in most classes. 12. Harrison College is much more expensive than any state college and my expectations of the staff were in line with the price I am paying at Harrison College, however, the staff at Harrison College has failed miserably when it comes to support and exceeding student's expectations. In my opinion, this College encourages failure so as to collect more money in tuition. 13. None of my issues have been addressed, I am continually met with unwarranted argument and false empathy; excuses without solutions, and inflated costs."

"They do not care about the students only in it for the money. They do not assist with employment resources at all. I regret it."

"I started out working on a BS in hospitality management. The one class I took for that specifically was online. The instructor did NOT read turned in assignments and I tested that for the final paper. At risk of my grade I did NOT do what was required on purpose yet received an "A". So I switched to another course of study. Well, if you're smarter than a 5th grader or maybe not even... you'll do fine there. I actually feel insulted to be treated like I'm in elementary school. Which is how you will feel if you have the qualifications of getting into a "real" college. I have elected to not return after this quarter and I'm going to finish my original course of study and then go on and get my Masters degree. The cost of tuition is incredibly expensive. They would NOT take most of my credits from 2 other college universities. Yet when I applied to another more prestigious university, than I have ever attended before, they would not take any credits from Harrison but took almost 125 from my other 2 colleges. Now you can take that and decide on your own what you want to do."

"Accounting Program could use some beefing up...a lot of management classes in the accounting program. The instructors that I had in class were wonderful. Most of the online instructors were helpful. Smaller classroom size is nice."
