School is going under!!!!!!! - 3/12/2019
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2019
"This school has became a joke in the last 5 to 10 years. Because people were forced online, the higher ups (Trump wanna be's) believe this is the direction they should stay because students are enrolling in online classes. YEAH BECAUSE THERE ARE NO ON CAMPUS CLASSES ANYMORE!! HELL there is no more staff at that. I hate to say this as I personally know the founding family of this company, THIS COMPANY is going under. I have 3 classes left and cannot seem to get a response and oh by the way I work for the corporation! I have had issues with every online class and instructor I have had. Why can someone have a 4.3 GPA level in on-campus classes but the minute they take the half a**ed online classes and fail every-time. Thanks for letting a computer do your job!!! I am going to finish my last three classes then I'm out!! If I can get the classes needed!!!!!!! If you are looking into attending a college may as well find the cheapest you can to get your degree because in the end they are all the same anymore, you just get shit on and end up paying more if the school has a name!! Hopefully I can keep others from getting screwed in the a** over and over. This is sad to say, as less than 3 years ago they had some great instructors and things were running rather productively. Now, not so much!!!"

"This school is complete crap. They charge outrageous tuition and offer little in return. They should be more carefully examined by the Feds. TERRIBLE!! I think that the (underpaid) faculty do try, but when they recognize that they are simply pawns in the game, they go away. The admins are over payed, and all they are expected to do is to string students along to enroll in the next term."

"This is all self study. Do not expect support from the program director. She will turn anything and everything around that you say and make it be your fault. The "instructors" do not know how to teach. Sure they know the job of being an OTA or OT, but they have not the slightest clue how to relay any actual information and teach. They will also mislead you into thinking that there is a huge demand for COTA, there is not. It took me MONTHS to find a job, and it was only PRN or part time. Sure they have great passing rates on the NBCOT, but it is all you. If you are looking for a program just to get a degree so you can sit for the test, then have fun. Just do not expect to learn anything in class. You are really paying to self teach. You just get a degree that says you can sit for the test. It is amazing the still have their credentials. This program is overpriced and you will NEVER receive any support. They will never have your back. If you have an issue with your fieldwork, being pushed around or harassed or treated unfairly, they will never have your back. You just have to deal with it and pray you make it to graduation. I would never suggest this school or this program to anyone, not even my worst enemy."

"look... I had not even started the school yet and I was having second questions. All of the different websites I had to create accounts for did not feel safe. I did not even know or get to pick what classes I wanted to be enrolled in. Once me and my mother called my representative to cancel my classes, she started to try and tell my mother how to raise me! She was also trying to belittle my mothers knowledge on the government shutdown and how the students loans were going to come through as the government opened up again. I plan on calling or emailing the head of admissions/dean to let them know how awfully she treated my mother over a phone call. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. I did not graduate or even to begin on starting school here. Just wanted to let everyone know about my situation ."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017
"I graduated last year 2017 from NAU with my BA in Business Management and the entire time it was dreadful. Even now I was dumb enough to back to school for my masters using their graduate program and that was a joke. Ive always had super helpful academic advisors which was the only positive part to going to this school. During my BA i had run out financial aid but was told that I was fine and my costs were covered until April of 2017... when I get a letter stating that I owed the school over 7k and was going to be sent to collections if I did not pay by the end of the month!!!! Not once was I ever told I had any outstanding balances owed to the school.. Now with me pulling out from my masters classes the day after they call me with a $22 balance telling me that I was 90+ days past due on it... again no one said anything! My husband now attends the school for the same degree and they have yet again found a way to get more money out of us!! Not to mention hes a military veteran with the GI bill!!! I will not be returning thats for sure!!"

"DO NOT, DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE. They enroll you in classes and don't tell you until your already a few weeks in that your financial aid won't cover the tuition. So you are either stuck with trying to get an outside loan or dropping out and still get charged. Then they expect you to pay off the entire tuition all at once. If you can't get a loan what makes them think you can pay the tuition all at once."

"One of the worst experiences Ive had with an educational institution. Your federal loans will not cover your degree program, but you will not be told this until you are a term away from graduating. You will be lead to believe that all is taken care of and be slapped in the face, so to speak, with an exorbitant amount of money needed, out of pocket, to complete your degree. Essentially, holding your degree for ransom. Bottom line, choose a different school!"

"I took their IT program. I originally enrolled in the BS program, but converted to the AAS so I would have a credential after the two mark for promotional purposes at work. I'm continuing with the BS program in the fall. I only had issues with two classes, one was due to an instructor that had difficulty making his expectations clear, but once I got used to nailing him down on details and over-delivering, the class went ok. The 2nd issue was due to outdated and broken links in the course material. When I brought up to the advisor and provost, I was invited to assist with updating the course for the following quarter. The experience wasn't perfect, but the staff and senior leadership were always available to speak with me, and took my feedback seriously. I really appreciated their willingness to listen and work with me. As to the quality of education, my experience so far has been positive. The AAS has a lot of gen-ed to it, and much of it was information I already knew, I just needed more practice. I'm looking forward to the BS program, and I expect to be challenged."
