Rasmussen College Reviews
Browse Reviews by Popular Programs:
The absolute worst experience of my life! The only reason I am scoring them a "1" is because "0" wasn't an option. I switched from another technical college to Rasmussen where I was before I even enrolled that my credits would transfer over into my program and I would be able to continue my education where I left off at the previous school. I had 8 months left ( 4 classes + clinicals left) before I would be ready to graduate. At first everyone was nice and seemed like they wanted to help but as soon as I signed up everything changed. I was put into classes I had already taken that I was promised would transfer over and when I started questioning why, all I got was "this is our policy", " your credits do not meet our requirements" when in fact the school that I had transferred in from is accredited by the same organization and has a higher standard required fro students to achieve than at Rasmussen. I found it incredibly hard to believe that my credits were unsatisfactory when I received my books and realized they were the same exact books I had from the previous school. The best yet is that they also used the same exact power points provided by the book manufacturer! Everything you do is online and nothing is explained to you before you start, it is extremely confusing. Even after they enrolled me in Gen eds I had already taken and passed I still gave them a try in hopes they would get it together next quarter...but nope! Sa,e garbage and same excuses. I am beyond fed up and appalled by this place, My adviser was of no help to em so I requested to speak to someone higher up about my credit transfer issue, I was referred to BP the Campus director who wouldn't even listen to a word I said and instead would just raise his voice and try talk over me, super rude fro the director of a college or anybody for that matter. He refused to listen to me and at the end of our first conversation stated that he needed to "talk" with my advisor and the program director because "he found it hard to believe that they would tell me such a thing" and that I had apparently signed something that instead of graduating in 8 months it would be another 2 years!! How does 8 months turn into 2 years?!? Why would I transfer into a school for another 2 years when I had less than a semester left in my program?? Needless to say B called me back to give me the same garbage story that they won;t take my transfer credits because they don't meet their standard and that I can chose to take 4 test out exams within the next 3 days in order to get the credit I have already earned and be able to withdraw from these classes I have already taken and not be charged for them. What a bunch of garbage!! I will be telling everyone I know how terrible this school is and what a waste of time! Even if they were to have taken my credits after this conversation I would still have withdrawn myself for the mere fact that I am not going to pay money to a school that lies to get get money and treats their students like they are incompetent when they call them out on their bogus mistakes!!
AVOID at all cost! Switching from another college with a 3.5 GPA I decided why not it will shorten my length of time. I even went through the enrollment process finished and started classes then 4 weeks later background check and we have to kick you out of the program for something that happened over 10 years ago and was a MIS offense. Cant switch back to my other school because of the weird start dates and because the other college already started their semester. So avoid this school at all cost!
Run!!!! After a week i realized online learning wasn't for me. I withdrew and they charged me 1100 dollars. The teachers were not good everything was so confusing..they trap you to get the gov funds!!! Stay away go to a different school!!!! You will thank me
This College is a joke. The classes are ridiculously high in cost, and the quality of education is awful. What do I mean by quality of education? To start the instructors rarely get back to you within 48 hours. Ive had a few classes that were capstones in which the instructs NEVER got back to me via email. You will have to contact the dean to contact the instructor to contact you. Once that happens, the instructor will single you out and give you an awful grade (C). This was noted because I had received straight As in every assignment, then when the instructor was informed by the dean she had failed to meet her obligations, she took that out on her student, whom simple wanted a simple question answered. Now Im not basing my entire college experience on this, but the college in general severly lacks any type of quality control. Classes have the assignments copied and pasted from other colleges (word for word). Little to no effort is put into the course content. I never read a single page of the text books they provided and was able to ace every single class. Some classes could be completely by simply sending junk assignments (assignments that had been used in module 1, and used for EVERY submission until week 11) meaning you can put whatever you want in the dropbox and you will receive 100% stating "Great Job". This college will teach you nothing except that their piece of paper for a bacheolors degree cost you 50k. Would also like to note you will take a lot of fluff classes and 182 credits for a bachelors degree. An example of a fluff class is 'the Psychology of social media, art in the workplace, etc' You will want to gouge your eyes out when you read about instructors demanding to be called PROFESSOR with a liberal arts degree teaching fluff classes. I also found that these jokes will also grade the harshest. HAVE FUN
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.
I am so glad I read the reviews on Rasmussen. I have been to other University's and I have NEVER seen a school like this one. The staff is so rude and truely does not care about the students. I have a disability and have asked for assistance and my requests were denied. I was treated so poorly. I have filed a complaint with the ADA. The nursing coordinator is a joke! I swear the TEAS test is rigged somehow. I have been in the medical field for 15 years and have many medical connections. They (hospital and clinic HR) state they do not have anything good to say about the "Nurses" that are pumped out of here. My advise, and as everyone can clearly see, DO NOT give this school your money. There are so many good schools out there. And this institution is not one of them. They really need to be investigated by the school board. It's a sham!
I was a student at Rasmussen college school of nursing, i thought it was a good program during orientation I asked several times about accreditation and never got a good answer. Their Rn to Bsn program is accredited but not the Rn. I was dropped from the program because two times I missed the 79% exam average by less than a point which caused me to fail out. I understand this fact. But I still keep in contact with the people in my cohort and several of them have received passing grades even though they should have failed and been dropped from the course like I was. The whole let's take pharmacology and intro to nursing is a trip to start with and then follow it up with mental health and nursing 2. When you exams are every week 4-6 chapters of material each week. It is just retarded and if you as a teacher to help you with something don't expect a reply for 2-3 weeks because they teach 3-4 classes online and are in a different state. Waste of 16 months go somewhere else.
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!
This school is a waste of time and a waste of money. First of all, the staff was not helpful whatsoever and acted like you were bothering them by calling them and asking questions. Isn't that what their job is? Second of all, On top of all of that, when I enrolled I asked if the Early Childhood Education certificate would be what I needed to be a preschool teachers assistant, and I was told it was EXACTLY what I needed to be a preschool teachers assistant! I started calling the schools in my county just to confirm because I know certain places want different types of degrees and training for certain jobs. I called TEN different districts in my surrounding area and every single one of them looked up the Early Childhood Education Certificate awarded by Rasmussen and they ALL said it was useless and meant nothing. One even said I might as well write "I'm a teacher now" on a piece of paper and it would be about the same as the certificate they gave. I decided right then and there that Rasmussen was not a good fit for me (or anyone else for that matter) and I requested to drop (I was well within the dates for my financial aid to not be affected!). The advisor that I spoke with to request that I cancel enrollment informed me that "if I gave up so easily I would not go anywhere in life." I am currently in a Medical Administrative Assistant program and I have a 4.0 GPA so it was most definitely the school that was an issue, not my motivation or determination. So fast forward 3 weeks. I think I've been dropped from classes, my financial aid is up to date, and I'm ready to start classes at UMA! Imagine my surprise when they tell me I am already attending a different school and have used 80% of my 17-18 FAFSA. I was outraged, but I tried to keep my cool. I emailed the academic advisor and the financial aid department requesting documentation that I was in fact NOT attending and NOT using financial aid. The only response I received was a template, and there was not even a single attempt to fill it out. It literally said "Dear ?StudentName?: and it was like that for the entire "document." That is unofficial and no one is going to accept that. I asked if I may have the contact information for a supervisor or director so that I could get the issue actually resolved. The advisor informed me that he did not have to give me the information and he had the nerve to tell me I "don't have to be a bitch because I'm not getting my way." You bet I found that contact information myself and I made sure to send the director the screenshot of every conversation I had with the advisors. He informed that on his end there was never any attempt made to drop me or cancel my FAFSA, so he corrected the issue himself. This school is an absolute joke. If you are enrolled or planning to enroll in Rasmussen, I BEG you to please reconsider so that you don't have the same issues I and so many others have had. P.S. If it were possible to give zero stars, or even negative numbered stars, I absolutely would.
