Hester - 1/12/2016
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2016
"When reading some of the reviews I am surprised. I started with Rasmussen when I lived in the US, when we moved back to Europe I continued with Rasmussen to complete my degree. During the move the instructors were very helpful and understand the hectic. I almost done, 2 semesters left and I have only good comments to tell. Whenever I had a question and sent an email, the same day I received a response the same day. The accelerated course is a challenge sometimes when you work and also have children but when keep you keep up with the work and follow the instructions you can follow perfectly. The instructors are nice and responsive, if I have a question each email is answered within 24 hours. It takes discipline to complete all the work, but at the end you will receive a degree you worked for and deserve it! I would recommend this school to anyone who has self disciple and commitment."

"Nowdays you need reviews, opinions and luck when it comes to making a simple decision. On a scholar level this is by far the worst school I ever attended. Some Instructors do not follow up with emails, you have to chase them down to grade your school work, the amount of work required is just absurd, the whole classroom is based on a 45 mins recording lecture once a month at best twice a month. Staff dean and counselors all have the same agenda, there is not a system in place to support students. My 1st semester was my last semester with this school. Its not a cheap school therefor I suffest you spend your hard earn mkney somewhere else if you're serious about your education"

"Veterans do not go here! the classes are mostly online and are poorly taught. You will be charged for classes by the day and Rasmussen ends the quarters early. They are not the 11 weeks that's you pay for and you have to do coursework through the holidays. They change courses on you and force you to spend more money with a new course they adopted and make you pay the price. It ishould only regionally accredited not nationally. Waste of money. Veterans look elsewhere for quality education this college is failing."

"This school is a complete joke. They butter you up with how "perfect" their program is, just to learn its unorganized and its self taught. Don't waste your time or your money. Go get a real legit degree. The instructors are rude and don't know anything but power points. It's all about money."

My experience with Rasmussen - 11/20/2015
Degree: Web Design
Graduation Year: 2017
"Rasmussen is the 7th college I've attended in the last 4 years, two which were non-profit and five which were for profit. All of the schools I've attended were online and I've by far had the best experience with Rasmussen's teaching staff and advisors. In my 6 semesters with Rasmussen everyone has been helpful in assisting me and getting me in classes and checking up when I fall behind and ablit every three weeks or so just to see how it's going. The instructors are great and all that I've had were more than willing to give one on one time when I needed help or clarification. Don't be lazy and expect anything to be handed to you, this is not that type of school, it's not a degree mill and some classes are very challenging. You must take initiative and work hard sometimes and ask for help soon as you need it rather than waiting until the last day of your weeks lesson to ask or make up excuses and expect them to work around your procrastination. The instructors have been very helpful and understanding when life has got in the way and have been very willing to work with me and work out a joint solution together. The overall experience is good in my opinion and I would recommend this school."

AS Student - 11/16/2015

"I'm surprised to see some of the negative comments. I am halfway through my program, and am impressed with the courses taken so far. There are always some instructors that are not as good as others, but overall, my experience has been a good one. You get out of it what you put into it. I can see where a person could easily fall behind if they do not keep up with the fast pace of the accelerated classes. I am very pleased with my decision to attend Rasmussen online. Courses are challenging, and rewarding. I highly recommend considering this school."

notworthit - 10/31/2015
Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2016
"I loved the field i was studying but Rasmussen was not teaching me what i needed to know about the field i was going into. it isn't worth the money we use to put in when the degrees aren't worth the paper they are printed on. not to mention the advisors aren't qualified to teach us, the student advisors don't give a hoot about the students. If I would have finished my degree with them; I wouldn't have known squat about my degree field. I would have paid 26,000 dollars only to make 29,000 a year."

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016
"I love Rasmussen. Not only am I a student, but I also work for the school. I am an accelerated student meaning that I am packing 4 classes into every 11 week session and I couldn't be any happier. I have attended other online schools and never felt like I was part of a community, but here at Rasmussen everyone is part of a family. I work along side advisors, deans, admissions personal and others and I am never treated any different because I am a student. I am proud to be a Rasmussen Moose and will use them for any further educational outings I embark on. I recommend Rasmussen to anyone who wants a school that is a community."

Nick R. - 9/8/2015
Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2017
"I am currently enrolled and everyone has been extremely helpful. From the advisory department to admissions, everything has gone smooth, my teachers have been quite hands-on and respond when questioned with thoughtful answers. I haven't graduated yet but I can say that I am already quite happy with my choice. You get out what you put in, so if you work hard and study hard then you will earn yourself a good degree and education."

"I am SO fed up with this school. Everything was perfect in the beginning despite what others had to say, they easily hooked me. I have only been attending since January of 2015 and I've already had THREE different advisors AND I can never get ahold of anybody at the school regarding any concerns that I have. I started failing classes because I could not get ahold of anybody, it was their problem according to them and to re-read the material when it was nowhere to be found. Also, there is not a single person on campus in the financial aid department at least out of the Lake Elmo/Woodbury campus and I have not been able to get my FAFSA/SAINT figured out in a month now!!! The only person I can talk to is my advisor and she keeps running me in circles because she doesn't know how to answer anything! Now, I still have a balance on my account and I can't get it covered and I have no money to pay out of pocket thanks to them. I am dropping out at the end of this term and I would never, ever recommend this to anyone!!!"
