"The worst college I have ever attended. Most of the instructors had no clue about the subject and in a lot of cases the students would correct the instructor. When it came to the exams, what ever we focused in lecture did not correspond to the test questions. In some instances students got caught cheating on the exams and the instructor did not take any actions. If you are interested in teaching yourself and wasting your money on this school, then by all means, I personally think it's cheaper just to buy the book."

"I decided to continue with Rasmussen to get my bachelors degree. The professors at Rasmussen are very knowledgeable and helpful. I am satisfied with my college experience at Rasmussen. This is a well respected college and your degree from Rasmussen will carry you far."

"The content in my courses at Rasmussen was challenging and relevant. The professors are very helpful and knowledgeable. Online support is top notch. The college experience at Rasmussen is very rewarding. It's not easy, but support is available for help when needed."

"I had professors that did not go by the college rule guidelines, because of pure ignorance and when contacting them they would delay my work even further by re routing me to the schools help line then the contacted hot line would refer me back to the professor telling me to inform her of the correct rules when informing them they would then go talk to the school help line emailing me back the solution but denying any fault. They hire unprofessional, inexperienced, and ignorant professors that will set you up for failure and even if you did succeed in these classes then you would learn nothing more than what a book could have given you."

"Before I start my review; I want to mention some key points: I graduate in September, I have a 3.9 GPA, and this is not my first time attending an online college or obtaining a degree. There seems to be a misconception on these reviews that any student who has had a less than stellar experience must be doing poorly or not familiar with a virtual school setting. With that being said, if you are looking for a career change with quality education, then I recommend you look into another institution. One that is not a for-profit school. Keep in mind for profit means their goal is to maximize monetarily on each student. So make sure your work is squared away because if they fail you, they get to charge you again. I've seen it happen to a few of my classmates. ( Based on the other comments, I'm curious what the retention rate is) My experience here has been the worst college experience I've ever had. In the Criminal Justice program for every subpar instructor you have, you will then have about five horrible ones. The worst part about this is you will have many of the same instructors 2-3 times! Most of the instructors have an odd chip on their shoulders; one stands out in particular, she will slay you on every assignment and then mock you in her comments to you. I found her classes to be uneventful as she will suck the life out of you and remind you how crappy she feels you are. It's not a great feeling. Please do your research and don't let the idea of their accelerated program trick you into wasting a ton of money or your military benefits. The course work is not challenging, but dealing with their horrible instructors who all have night and day expectations has not been worth it to me."

"This is a terrible school and I dont advice anyone to come to this school.. They are after your money and people failing the school. They dont care about students. My candid advise to other student is that you go to other schools... I regretted going to the school and I literally had to drop my job on other to focus to pass and not repeat any class.. All what they do is irrelevant things especially when it comes to role and scope and also they are bunch of racist too... so be warned . If you like your life DO NOT COME TO THIS SCHOOL"

"This is a for profit school, they will nickel and dime you for everything, it is extremely expensive for a very poor education. You will have to self teach yourself everything! Let alone the majority of your credits will not transfer over to another college or university institution. I didn't learn anything here, the level of education is extremely poor, no help or feedback from instructor's. It was extremely frustrating! I transferred over to my local public college and it was the best choice I have made. A fraction of the cost for a far better education! None of my credits transferred over from Rasmussen and I am close to 20,000 in debt from them... Rasmussen is a big waste of money, they are fraudulent, they don't care about you or your future all they care about is the MONEY that they can scam out of you. I am reporting them to the DOE and BBB so PLEASE do your self a favor and listen to all of these reviews, I witnessed it first hand. AVOID this fraudulent "company" they should not even call themselves a school, they are far from one. I had to pay a textbook / lab fee for my classes that didn't even have a lab or textbook! They will also take all of your student loan money, pell grant money, and scholarship money, and still send you a bill in the mail for you to pay out of pocket. While as at my public college they actually send me excess money back. It is literally a fraction of the cost, so do not get coned into going to Rasmussen, they are a big WASTE!!!"

"I attended the St. Cloud, MN campus. I do not work for the school or benefit in any way leaving this review. It just makes me sad to see all the negative reviews, so I wanted to chime in with my experience. A lot of the negative reviews talk about the schedule, the grading or the cost. Nursing school is never easy, flexible or cheap. I went to a well regarded public school for my LPN and had issues with all of the above and then some. Sure, we got our clinical schedules last minute but that is not because of rasmussen - that is how clinical assignments work. The grading is tough, but that is true for any nursing program - you need to have above 78% to pass. Personally, I wouldn't want a nurse caring for me that got lower scores than that in school. The instructors at the St. Cloud campus really care about their students. They were available to talk to at all hours of the day, and got to know us on a personal level. Some reviews state that most courses are online, but that wasn't true for me. There were a few online courses (4 total), otherwise we were in lab, lecture or clinical. The simulation lab is an excellent learning experience. The best thing (in my opinion) is that Rasmussen really prepares you for the NCLEX. They build ATI exams into all the courses and that really seems to help people pass boards on their first try. Most people in my cohort have passed on their first try with the minimum questions. Please take the negative reviews with a grain of salt. Nursing programs always suck, that is just a fact. But this one prepared us to pass our boards and be good nurses and our instructors cheered us on the whole way. We have not had trouble finding jobs. Consider the St. Cloud campus if you are in the area."

"Go somewhere else!!! I completed my degree here and would not recommend this institution. Poorly managed and run. Disorganized. They will call and email you for tuition money starting the second week of school, but will not notify the BON of your graduation until many weeks have passed. Go somewhere else!!! A few good instructors, last minute scheduling changes, due to lack of organization. Very frustrating experience, not worth the cost. Go somewhere else!!! You have other, better choices in town and regionally, select one of them instead. I promise you, you will be sorry if you select this school"
