"I see all the negatives in these reviews, if they are all true, I must been in a different school. I have had nothing but an excellent experience since I entered school in November, 2017. My classes and instructors were all top notch. I spent 35 years in the business world before I returned to school so I some knowledge about what instructors were teaching having already experienced it. True, Rasmussen is not cheap, but I feel that I get my money's worth every quarter. I get my Associates in September of this year and have already enrolled for my Bachelor's in Management. I'm sure , in some people's eyes, there are better schools out there. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I will finish my Bachelors in early 2021, and who knows, I might even go for my Master's."

"This school is awesome. I got my associates in health information technology at this school and will be graduating with a BA this year. What you put in is what you get out of it. Negative students are most likely not applying themselves at this school. Nothing in life is easy but graduating at this school was well worth it. It was so flexible and allowed me to live a busy life while finishing school. I love Rasmussen. :-)"

"First I would like to state... Yes, I graduated, but not from Rasmussen. I attended Rasmussen for two semesters and saw the school for what it really was, and not for what the admissions representatives will have you believe it is. I'd also like to comment in regards to another comment posted here, where the commentor said "you get what you pay for"! That is the most ignorant comment I read regarding Rasmussen, thus far. I received the majority of my degree from a state school, I received a very good education from that state school, and did not have to pay 10 grand a semester for it. So, no commentor, it is not necessary to pay a ridiculous amount in order to receive a good education, in fact it is just the opposite. I would not recommend to anyone, that they go to a private, for-profit Institution. The only thing that will come of this, is a ridiculous amount of debt. I took both ground and online classes from the state school I attended, so when I comment about Rasmussen, I believe I have a decent amount of experience to compare it to. Rasmussen was a garbage education. I knew it, in the first semester, but gave it a second semester to make sure I was making the correct decision, based on solid evidence. The professors were not available to answer questions, nor did they respond to emails timely or at all! The only person you could get a hold of was the admission rep. She was your go to for all questions. You were no allowed to speak to financial aid, or any other department directly. This was a complete turn off, as far as I'm concerned. I don't think I should be forced to go through my admissions rep, to get info about my financial account. Note: that I call my admissions rep, just that, not a counselor, because there was no counseling. She was simply there to make sure I stayed enrolled in said classes, and completed just enough work to keep me from being dropped, so they could continue to bill my financial aid account. There was no resources, tutoring, or assistants to contact, if you had difficulties or questions regarding your assignments. You were simply given the assignments and left to fend for yourself. So no, again, you do not get what you pay for! My list of the things that are wrong with this school, is enormous and there is not enough time in my day, to name them all. I completed my financial aid at the start of my enrollment, with the request that should I withdraw or be dropped from a class and or semester, that the remaining aid be returned to me. I did this so that the remaining aid would be applied to any balance, instead of being returned to the government, leaving me without a balance owed. But, did they do this... Nope! Instead I received a bill for a grand, with a note at the bottom saying I had requested my aid be returned to the government. UGH, When I explained this to the, now, collection department (this would be the first time I spoke to someone other than my admissions rep), and forwarded an email dated prior to my enrollment, to my financial aid REP that I had been in contact with the entire two semesters I was at Rasmussen, I simply received a generic response from that collections rep. Which I knew I would receive, and I also knew their was nothing that could be done regarding the aid at that point, it had been sent back, and that was that. To conclude; I refuse to pay this balance. As I told them, "they can send it to Jesus, see if he is willing to ignore their lies, and pay their ridiculous fees and balance owed, cause I most certainly am not" . I have finished my degree so they can not hold my financial aid hostage, as they do with most. They will be forced to move on and scam another innocent student, that is looking to complete their education, and achieve their goals. They will manipulate, lie, and misguide these students, draining their financial aid dry. Leaving these students with no aid for the real education, that they will be forced to pursue after they wise up to the lies at Rasmussen."

"I have a IEP and like the fellow before; was given the run around. they kept changing advisiors and I wouldn't get my books till the class was in its 6th week. They kicked me out after 2 Deans List Awards and the A's to go with them But.. I flunked accounting 2; 2x and they couldn't wait to kick me out. I owe $30,000 for nothing.I also asked for help.. I could not learn from him and then they made him my ... tutor. in his class room while it was in attendance with other students. I couldn't think with all the noise. I feel they discriminate against students with disabilities .. it makes more work for them. I ask for a different teacher the second time, and was refused; saying just try it for a little bit. then I flunked . they told me in the hall I flunked and was kicked out. how embrassing.."

"I would NOT recommend this college, they only offer online class and dont want to help anyone out if you need it, I have an IEP and they didnt even work with me when i was having a hard time. I kept asking for help and told them many times but nothing, and they keep change your student advisory so they know nothing about you and then say "well you didnt tell me" well it should all be in my file and why should i have to tell every person the same thing!"

"I signed up back in 2014 and used my Gi bill. I thought I was good. I still had to fill out the FAFSA. I am still enrolled. honestly Its been a few years and I didn't learn anything. I am just skating by, by doing minimal work because the material itself is hard to understand. Assignments don't match up with what they want you to read up. 95% of the time I just made stuff up without research or knowing the topic and still get an A. All they care about is the money. I have been attending two years going for bachelors in business I thought I would get an associates and move on to bachelors but this was a lie. They told me at first I would but i'm in the last year and I asked about and was told they don't offer associates in business. I recently look into my financial aid. I use the GI bill to pay for the school 100%. Apparently i'm also using federal student loans both subsidized and unsubsidized. This is illegal as I never signed any student loan paperwork or gave authorization to take on student loans. I asked for documents and proof and was hung up on. It's been two weeks still can't get in touch. I went up to the school to talk to someone and was told the person I needed to talk to was out on vacation and will get in touch with me when she got back. This is unacceptable and illegal. I now have student loans to pay for. I never got an email or mail from any student loan provider. I found out it was nel net because they showed up on my credit report which I decided to check and haven't seen in a few years. I am disputing it right now. And talking to lawyers. They are criminals. Just be careful. they are taking advantage of a disabled vet and who knows how many others."

"I see many negative reviews on this site and what I noticed is they are all generally written by Nursing students. I recently obtained my degree in Business Administration and I have nothing but positive things to say. I might not be a fan of the way the courses are set up but just like all things, you get what you put into it. The materials that were given were similar to the ones that I have received at my previous school (Depaul). While there were some bad apples in regards to professors I would say that the majority of them were knowledgeable and helpful. Many of them in their introductions would let you know what their background was, what schools they attended, and other current occupations. I feel that it is rather easy to know if someone is lying and I have no doubt that these teachers are telling the truth. Some even have brought in example of their current projects at work to help facilitate our education. I will admit that the tests are rather easy but this could be attributed to my effort of reading every chapter and conducting outside research. Again, you get what you put in and I have grown more knowledgeable of my subject. As far as careers go I received a job offer within three months of graduation and couldn't be happier at my current occupation."

"A friend of mine recommended that I transfer to Rasmussen because I would be able to finish my degree online. I started in January and realized immediately what a joke this school is. The format of the online classes is horrible. I work 40+ hours per week and have a family and having to submit two to four research papers, do readings from several books for each class, watch a live hour long classroom session, post a discussion, etc every week got to be too much for me very fast. My grades started to slip as I didn't turn in all of my assignments but somehow I still managed to pass my classes. I decided I would try another semester to see if other classes were any better but there were just as bad. The amount of work I was putting into my classes and learning absolutely nothing was horrible. The professors were hard to get a hold of for questions. Also, after the semester started I made my first payment for tuition and never heard anything else. A month later I got an email saying I owed over $1000 even though I was never notified. They are very unorganized and I would never recommend this school to anybody!"

"I earned my AAS degree in 2004 and loved to tell everyone, Rasmussen is the best colleage in the earth. That's why, I went back and finsih another two bachelor's degrees. I was a transfer student. Instructors at Rasmussen College are super helpful. Whenever I sent email to them, I must receive reply on time. All my majors were in Business that it's a great help for my career. I got a new job before my AAS degree graduation and promotion after my first bachelor degree. My boss told me, I truly qualified new position. I truly appreciate Rasmussen College giving me a new life."
