Rasmussen College Reviews - Associate in Healthcare Administration
Review of Healthcare Administration Associate Degrees
Spend your money elsewhere. Rasmussen will say/do anything to get in your wallet & once they have their hooks in you, all support stops. Some insight to how Rasmussen conducts themselves as a business - I attended this school for nearly 2 years, plenty of time for them to build a dossier of sorts on me as a student there, or at least maintain an academic record via transcript right? Well I just (today, 1/25/18) received an email from the program director inquiring about my expressed interest in attending college.. implying I had never attended any school prior.. Worse yet, I have actually sat in this person's office while I was a student. Do not attend this school especially if you have minimal post-high school support as your hard earned dollars are better spent at a real reputable institution. Rasmussen sees dollar signs & cares little about your success. Save yourself the headache.
I see a lot of negative reviews on this school, but it is a great school. The teachers are very helpful and they give you what you need to succeed. Nothing in life is easy and the workload at any school isn't easy. This school really helped me to achieve my goals.
I failed 1 coding class due to not having time to focus, I dealt with the sudden death of my younger brother and fell behind and did not understand the information as necessary. I informed my advisor that I needed to drop the class and try again the next semester when I had a clear mind and that I would sign up for a tutor. I did these things, my advisor and tutor cheered me on and reminded me that I only needed a 73% to pass. I received a 75%, great right? Wrong! I was misinformed and my new advisor said that I unfortunately needed a 78% and that I would be getting dropped out of the program. Now mind you I had this class and 2 more to finish before I received my degree that I am now in debt for $30,000 for. I asked if there was a way to get back in the program and was told I could take the class at another college and transfer back but was not guaranteed the credits I had earned upon return. I looked around at other colleges anyway and most of them would only be able to transfer 1 semester worth of credits and I would have to start fresh just to take the one class! $30,000 wasted and no degree to show for it, all due to one class and a lying student advisor.
Warning! Do not attend this school! It's a big waste of money and time!!!! I regret going to this school. I do not recommended this school to anyone. Worst school ever! The Professor are lazy they take forever to reply back and the assignment insertion are horrible! Trust me and everyone that saying stay away from this school! Don't be like us we regeting going here. Do not go to this school!
I would not recommend this school, not because they aren't providing good educational opportunities but it is way to expensive for the quality of education they provide. I also would not recommend this school, because personally I think the instructors aren't giving 100%. Is obtaining the degree at this school possible? yes Will you learn? yes, but trust me they will drain your pockets.... Yes I graduated but with over 16K in debt. Take my advice.
I wasn't going to write a review, but felt compelled to do so after reading poor reviews. I had an EXCELLENT experience at Rasmussen. I attended online via the Ocala, FL campus. My advisors and point of contact were all extremely prompt, informative, and professional. I did A LOT of research before picking a school that would fit my needs. Yes, it's a tad pricey, but for never having to step foot on a campus, books included, and graduating ahead of schedule- what would one expect? I previously attended a reputable, private university here in Florida and ended up transferring to Rasmussen. I can't speak for other programs, but you have to remember Rasmussen isn't on the same level as Yale. I recommend Rasmussen to any adult wanting to start or finish a degree on his or her time.
Update..... I do not know how to reply to comment however, my views on this school is the same. Inexpensive and supportive staff. Full time students pay $199 per credit hour plus fees. Part time students pay $260 per credit hour. Either way tuition is much cheaper than most schools. Teachers respond in a timely manner and my advisor do as well and she often check in on me. Classes are very intense especially at 5.5 weeks long. Online schooling isn't for everyone so maybe that's what calls for some negative remarks. I don't know. I like the school. I graduate in December.
I am seeing all these bad reviews and I am like really. This school is very intense. They are fast past 5.5 week course. You have to be willing to put in the work. I just completed my second term. It was hard but I learned. My teachers were very helpful and informative. I can email or call my advisor and get a quick response. No later than 1 business day but I usually hear from her way sooner. I been to a lot of online schools and I finally found a online school to fit my busy life style. It's very affordable. Much cheaper than most online schools. Devry wanted almost $500 a credit hour for their program and you are only allowed to transfer certain amount of credits in plus. $40,000 for a AS degree is ridiculous!!!! Rasmussen accepted all my credits that applied to my degree which was about 35 and my tuition is $199 per credit hour. I stumped across this school trying to go to WGU. I am using this school a a prerequisite for WGU. WGU want me to have a AS degree and be a certified RHIT before I can be accepted in the Health Informatics program.
Worse choice I EVER made in my entire life! At 50 years old I wanted to change careers and after Tens of Thousands of dollars and student loans, everything at Rasmussen is ABSOLUTELY WORTHLESS!!! I can not transfer any of the 60+ credits I earned because they are not accredited nationally.
There aren't any internships associated with Medical Administration, medical coding or billing. I am working at a local hospital, 20 hours a week maximum $11/hr, $12,000 a year. The Human Resource Department at Rasmussen is a waste of space for the college. The person does not return telephone calls and was zero help with finding employment in my field. After graduation and applying for a position at Rasmussen College for which I was qualified, I received a rejection e-mail. Rasmussen was not at all helpful in seeking employment. My present employment was found without the help of Rasmussen.
