"If you're planning to attend and learn anything I'd strongly recommend looking into other options. Most of the instructors I had during my time with this school won't put in any effort above the very minimum needed to get through the course. Some will try their best to work with you and help you when you are having problems, most won't and will simply tell you to get the work in ASAP. Some instructors are knowledgable regarding the material they are teaching, but I've also had a number of instances where I've found that the information being given to the students is just plain wrong. In addition to this I've also had the instructor insisting I was wrong on a topic they weren't familiar with on an assignment and outright refused to change my grade until I provided a reference, something which the instructor could have discovered on their own with a simple google search. When taking courses at this school you will be teaching yourself just about everything from basic coding to SQL and database management. Even then, the projects tend to basic, so if you're willing to teach yourself there are plenty of resources available online that are low cost or even free. The courses at Rasmussen seem to be geared more towards students who already know the material and are willing to pay to show they've already obtained the knowledge in order to receive a degree. So, I reiterate, if you're here to learn look anywhere else."

"Transferred out of this school as soon as I could to a more respectable college that actually teaches the classes. I had to retake classes that I had originally passed with ease at Rasmussen because I did not learn anything from the classes at this school. When speaking with my new adviser at the college that I transferred, I was asked the extent of my computer knowledge. At that point, he determined that I would need to retake the introduction to computer programming again due to the serious lack of knowledge after taking several different courses at Rasmussen. Half of my credits were not excepted at this higher quality college that I attend now, creating a much higher cost for me to complete my education. By the time I left Rasmussen, they had already depleted half of my grants and loan allowance while I was still in Freshman status at the Rasmussen campus. When I inquired at Rasmussen, I was informed that if I enrolled with them, I would spend 50% of my time in classes conducted at the campus and 50% online, which the majority of the computer classes would be at the campus. I did not have but one computer class on campus that ended up being online satellite communication anyway. The classes only presented programs that were already created and you were only expected to troubleshoot the problems the had. No actual teaching of computer programming that could help a student wanting to learn. If I could give zero stars to this college, I would. It was a complete wast of my time and almost $20,000 that could have went toward the real education that I am getting now at a much cheaper price tag."

"The core of computer science was never touched. Compare them with decent school like, FAU, FSU, CSU, UCLA or even state colleges. Do your homework. If data structure and algorithms are no the core of your classes what can you do in an interview or in a real job. Worst computer science program with less than approximately 1 percent of successful student. You have been warned to educated yourself before choosing your school. Don't do it please. Do what is worth your career."

"My experience at Rasmussen was very sub-par in my opinion. Lack of communication, stressful, expensive both from loans and out of pocket. Overall I would not recommend it to anyone; the experience was very costly and emotionally taxing. Let's go over the advantages first because the negatives will be lengthy. It was convenient without a doubt. If I had a much smoother experience in communication, it would have been very manageable. Second, they have a few excellent instructors. I ran into two myself in my two years, which not a great ratio mind you, but worth mentioning. Now for the negatives, which I will simply share my experience. I was at Rasmussen for two years. During these two years, nothing monumental. During Dec 2018 I was told that I had to complete five additional classes by the end of the month to graduate. Roughly an additional 20 credits for $400, on top of my current finals. I was quickly overwhelmed by the sheer amount of coursework to do that I started failing. I do admit; I could have buckled down, thrown my emotions and worries out the door, and got it done. I didn't however, and the mindset of there is no possible way I can do this set in. So I had to sign up for three additional full-time classes, which is more loans and $1,000 out of pocket. I was accidentally signed up for a class and had to fight to have that refunded with a heavy emphasis on "fight". The director I spoke to, Adam F, was continually trying to push blame towards me while I had never been told that these courses existed and where to find what was required. Let's skip ahead three months and complete the three classes I signed up for. One of the classes that I was informed how they worked until December expired. As a result, I am taking one four-credit class, which since I only have one class is not covered for finical aid. As a result, an additional $1,400 out of pocket for that one class. So recapping, I spent roughly two years, approximately $20,000 in debt, and $2,400 out of pocket in the last month for my Associates. I would not recommend Rasmussen and encourage you to look at other options. I myself am looking at Metropolitan State in MN because they have an online MBA, about a third of the cost, and far better offerings."

"Rasmussen by far was the most expensive mistake I have ever made. The quality of education provided is absolute dreadful. The information provided is outdated and the professors are rarely available to answer questions. Their system is all over the place and when you call their technical support, no one is competent enough to provide a solid answer. If you qualify for Financial Aid use it wisely at a creditable college. In order to graduate from Rasmussen you still have to take student loans in order to pay the deficit. Funny how that can be avoided if they would just apply your access funds of your Pell grant. I regret to say I attended two semesters with them. Not only did I not learn a damn thing, I also had to come out of pocket $2000 dollars to pay towards my student loan I did not need. You will always have bad reviews about institutions and companies, not everyone comes out happy. When there is a trend with a vast majority of people providing different experiences and the same bad quality, just be leery. I would never recommend this school even to a dog let alone a human. Save yourself your time and money."

"They need good course like data structures and algorithms course they need to help people now or should down the program. They don't have a good computer science program at all. I think they do that on purpose. They need to change asap because coding is important to know to be a good programmer. Rasmussen... not good"

"I only attended a month before I decided to drop out. The homework was a joke. Our tests were a joke. I had straight A's. I then handed in a test with 2 missing answers, received 100% because I tried. I want my money back. I only attended the school for about a month. It only took that long to realize it's just another diploma mill. The advisor was very helpful and kind. I can't believe these diploma mills are getting away with crap like this? People are posting fake reviews telling how awesome these schools are, and how great of a job they got because of schools like these. The government should do something about it."
