Stevens-Henager College Reviews

I'm writing this review to save people grief over financial issues. The schooling was pretty standard to me, though I don't think it's worth $50,000. I had to leave my program early due to health issues, which also led to financial issues. When it came time to start paying back what I owed, the loan company worked fine with me, but it was a completely different story with the school. They insisted I pay nearly $400 a month for the loan that I took with them, and made me jump through so many hoops to get down to $100. As a 20 year old woman, solely supporting herself, that was still a huge stretch for me. When things became dire, I asked to try and move down to $50 until I was able to start paying more again, and they refused to work with me. The agent I worked with even stated that I 'should have considered financial hardship as a possibility' upon leaving my program. Luckily, I made it through the season of hardship without any major consequences, although there were plenty of tears and sleepless nights spent worrying about making the bills. I am still paying on the loan about a year and a half later, still at $100. They continue to send late notices and charge me late fees monthly since I'm unable to pay nearly $400 each time, despite the fact that I have always made my bill on time and paid the full $100 previously agreed upon. I'm currently seeking legal advice on this and another matter related to the school, and will update\leave another review after the matters have been handled. All in all, I would not recommend this school to anyone. They seek out those who struggle, and put up a faade of care and concern for their students, when the harsh reality is that it's all about getting their money, not you making more.
Attending Stevens-Henager College was a complete waste of time and if you are thinking about going to this institution than I highly suggest you rethink it because employers won't hire you if you graduate from here. They tell you what you want to hear when you sign up, that their graduates get hired, they offer career services and advice to get you into your career faster and that their instructors are good at what they do (which most of them are not). They offer no career advice they just find a job that's been posted online and send it your way to apply to, they say they have "connections" with other businesses to help their graduates get experience which I don't believe they do. As far as I know they don't offer internship or externship opportunities cause I never heard of anyone getting one while earned my Bachelor's Degree. They'll bend over backwards for students who don't care about school or the grade just to keep their attendance level up. I can't tell you how many times when students hadn't turned in anything and the mod was over and they said "get it to me next week" even though they say they "can't and won't accept it once the mod is over". I could go on but ultimately this school and it's degree is not worth it, personally I've only had two interviews since I graduated and I was very tenacious once I graduated looking to get my feet wet and find something I could be happy doing. I still work in a grocery store with no hopes of ever having a career that makes me happy both emotionally and financially which was the point of going to school in the first place. If you choose to go they're just using you and you're wasting your time.
Absolute worst decision of my life. The medical assisting program is absolute garbage. I wasted 2 years and over 30K with this school. The worst part is that my degree didn't really get me any kind of pay raise. I make just as much as a medical assistant as I did as a CNA (which only cost me $250 to get). The teachers were clueless and it was impossible to contact anyone when you needed them. I did my externship with a clinic one of my instructors personally attended and the physician in that clinic was basically a drug dealer!! He threw pills at anyone he could, including the instructor! I wasn't allowed to do anything in my externship except take vitals and do paperwork. I later moved to a different clinic of my choosing to complete my externship and learned more in the 2 weeks I was there than the previous month of being at the first place I went to. When I got a job as a medical assistant I had to basically relearn everything because I'd been taught wrong on so much of it. I will never, ever recommend this school to anyone.
This school is horrible and they are not up front about your costs. You most likely will end up in a job like before you attended there. The things they offer you can achieve on your own by training through businesses. Every thing i learned i could of done outside Stevens Henager.
Such a trap. I am only attending because I feel forced. I went for about 3 months and realized this is not what I want to do. Which is normal, humans are allowed to change their minds. After I spoke with everyone I needed to, I was informed I owe about 15,000 just for those few months I attended. I felt stuck in a place I did not want to be. I am still stuck and am only attending because of the large debt I would of owed, might as well owe and have something to show for it. After hearing from other graduates I was informed my degree might "not count" in other states. What a joke.
Great college. I'm a live in caregiver to my cancer ridden husband, and they are 100% understanding when either he or I can not make it to school. The admissions team is absolutely amazing and very, very thorough. I personally recommend the campus, not straight online. The deans are amazing and extremely qualified. In fact all the staff are very qualified and know what they are doing. I can not say enough good things about this college. Their programs have changed drastically and are hands on. In order to go somewhere, you must put in the effort. (I'm a straight A student)
Best decision I ever made! Started out going for my Associates but changed to my Bachelor's. Before I even finished I was able to get a great job with an amazing company. All of these people saying they can't get a job afterwards due to where their degree is from need to look at their resume...
If you are thinking of coming here please, do yourself a favor and run (not walk) the other way. The debt that you will incur from coming to this school will leave you broke and probably with a job that doesn't pay anymore than 12.00 an hour at best. This school charges somewhere around 30.000.000 for an Associates degree. You're not going to get the education you would get at a University (credibility) and by the time you wake and smell the roses after you've graduated and they tell you you owe the school another 2000.00 aside from your student loan payment you'll 600.00 in for payments a month.
S*** school, nothing happened as promised. Cant work full time or you will get garnished. Degree is completely worthless. I am worse off than i was before amd wish I had never went. I dealt with tutors on drugs. This college is a complete scam that will ruin your life. And put you forever in debt
Stay away from here from this college. I finished my degree and started to apply for jobs. its a business degree... let that sink in. I also have experience in my field been in middle management 5 years experience. Now when i went in for my interviews and the interviewer would ask "How did you preform at.... (as they flip the page and look at where i went) Steven Henager's college? (as they were holding in laughter)." I had the opportunity of asking a friend of mine who is a CEO of a pretty large company if he would hire someone like me just by looking at my degree/ resume and he said "No, not when i can get someone else with a different college level. i'd prefer if you went to WGU or even Rosemont but Steven Henager is a absolute joke". So if you stay away from here it is in your best interest. This place is still in business just because they market to those who have less than stellar academia accolades, and their "national accreditation" doesn't mean you can transfer to any school or that its held in high regard. its strait up garbage and go somewhere else.
