Maryville University Reviews
While Maryville is supposed to be one of the best schools in the St. Louis area, I believe that it is highly overrated. I take classes 100% online, and when you take a test, you cannot view your answers so you have NO idea what you got wrong or if you were graded fairly. The material is not developed by the professor and often times the instructions are not clear, or web sites that are part of the curriculum are out of date or broken links. I feel that for the money, Maryville is not giving their students a quality education.
The 'support' staff is atrocious. Advisor suggested I just drop out since accounting was difficult for me, you can't drop your own courses but they don't answer phones drop week (and I'm a remote student) realized I needed an accommodation on a test and was told by that department that even if I provided a document they wouldn't apply it to the test in question because it was assigned before the document was provided. I had spoken to multiple people regarding a learning disability but had never needed any accommodation, so when I asked for an extra 30 minutes on an exam in my last course prior to my capstone I was refused.
The courses are self-taught, they use the same powerpoints, recordings and tests for each semester. The instructors are hit or miss. My current instructor hasn't graded things I submitted 3 months ago. The person in charge of obtaining preceptor approval from the state board of nursing is rude and dismissive. I received an email last year that I was missing paperwork for my practicum. I contacted everyone in the nursing department and no one could tell me what I was missing. It turns out, I was missing nothing... undue stress for nothing! No help obtaining preceptors. Do yourself a favor and choose another school!
Maryville University is a horrible college. The online class teachers are not accomodating whatsoever. You cannot view your test answers because the instructors are too lazy to make a new test each semester so you have no idea if they are grading fairly or not. Not to mention, that some of the instructors are pompous and arrogant. As a former student, I had the right to see my test scores so that i could learn from my mistakes. Not at this university, they will not allow you to see your test scores. Plus, this college is just as expensive as SLU and you are basically teaching yourself. I would not suggest this school to anyone. Spend your money elsewhere. It is a waste.
