Do not go to this school, biggest mistake of my life! I am $30,000 in debt for a degree I do not use. It is not worth it, I have been searching for a job since I graduated in 2013 and nothing yet! This school should not exist!!! I want to go back to school but I have to start all over because my credits will not transfer.
The school is wonderful. The instructors are very knowledgeable. I did search this school out very good, read the pros and cons. I did so much research and ask a lot of questions. I recommend this school to anyone that would really like to learn and get a great education. The school is worth every cent.
What a rip off. They say they are accredited but they are not. I have been out for a year and a half now with no accounting job. Every job opportunity that comes says they are not credited anymore. I would not recommend this school to anyone. I would go somewhere else.
Huge waste of money. Dean is a liar. Change graduation requirements without warning. We didn't get all of the clinical hours we were supposed to according to our syllabi. Instructors are stressed to the max and overworked. Not enough instructors. Inconsistent standards for students. You pay for this degree and don't have to earn it. Most students threaten lawsuits to get grades instead of earning the. Crappy lab facility for cost of school. $50K for ADN is ridiculous. Can't get a job d/t bad rep of school. Disorganized admission process. Had to fight to get graduation certificate when I finally jumped through all their changing hoops. Required B grades are in reality C & D work. Grade fixing is a big problem here. Nursing Dept. cannot get & keep accreditation. Poor instructional quality.
Please do not got to this School it's a waste of time and money. They will rush you through the Financial aid and make you sign so much paper work it's Ridiculous. I dropped out of this school. Now I'm 4000 dollars In deput. Now they won't return my emails or anything!!
Not happy with the online program. I haven't been in college in over 10 years and things have changed a lot since then. the online instructors aren't will to work with you. they ignorantly state that if you are in 400 level classes you should know apa 6th addition. I would if I went from associates straight into a bachelor's program but unfortunately if you got your associates degree 10 years ago they don't show you how to properly do it. also the finance instructor was giving false information in his lectures I spoke to him about it he said he is aware of this this is the lecture set up by the university the dean said that my allegation was false. lastly, in a history class I will be honest not the best subject for me I even struggled with history in high school twenty years ago. anyways the instructor posted her assignment I completed it just as she stated it to be. appartently that wasn't her expectations and gave me a failing grade I took it to the dean. ( if you are looking at stevens henager will be told is on the side of the student) didn't even review my assignment or her instructions and told me to work it out with the teacher. NOT WORTH THE MONEY. I have been told by four different teachers how to do the APA 6th addition and each of their methods was different from the other. stevens henager college and the deans for the online classes don't care and not on the side of the students.
Don't get discouraged. I STRUGGLED IN HIGH SCHOOL. I was nervous about going back to school. Yes, signing up is painful process. Once you do it takes off. The instructors are amazing. They work with you. You need to reach out. If you work. Then this school will work. Homework isn't unreasonable. Yes you have to do your best. In high school I was a C student . I now get A's And B's. Though it it's an accelerated program ,they make it work, free tutoring for your whole family. I absolutely love this online college.
Experiences: 1. I was told that if I made monthly payments of 100 dollars, there would be a balance of about 650 by the time I finished my associates degree,but when I went to do my exit interview there was a balance left owing of 3600 dollars which I thought it to be odd.. I continued to pay that money but thought there was a mistake because the numbers the school people were showing me never added up. Finally after a well hard fight I was able to prove to them I had paid too much and they had to reimburse me some of that money. 2. I applied to a position offered by the company where one of my instructors was working. In fact he was one of the panelists during my interview., After the interview, I asked how I have done, and he said to me "you did very well" so I felt really good about it, Three weeks later one of his colleagues called me and said they felt I was not ready for the position even though it was an entry level position.You see what Im getting at? One of my instructors at SHC with the power to hire me there did not think I was ready for the position!!!(I KNOW IRONIC) 3. I can go on,and on, on.. Some of you will get on here and say that I did not put forth the effort and I will respect that.. But know that I had a full time job at the time and I still finished with a GPA of 3.80 but the degree that I obtained is no "validated" even by the company I work for now. Do what you think is best is your money and life. Im only sharing my experiences at SHC. with you.
I thought they had great teachers, who tried hard, I really enjoyed going to school there! It is expensive, but the books, computer, and all of the other benefits that you get are included, it's a private school, the I.T. Techs, tutors, schedulers, teachers, counselors, etc.,were always right there to help you when you needed it! I thought they did a great job, and I learned a lot, They are still very helpful when needed, even as alumni, the college is set up so that you may go back to audit, refresher courses, for free for the rest of your life. If you need assistance finding employment they will help you the best that they can!
Please shut down this place! It is just robbing students! Literally usually with financial aid students will get some money for living but they show us the prices so high that it takes all of the money you don't see a single penny just that it pays your tuition. Then the instructors suck. The degree you receive isn't credible anywhere really it's not worth it. And you can take cna, phlebotomy, MA, pharmacy tech, medical coding and I'm sure the rest of what they offer somewhere else with a better education for MUCH MUCH less and learn way more. They promote that it's a quick way to get a degree and a job at the end. It's so not worth it at all. Go look at your community college first they have tech schools too. If I would've known and there were reviews I definitely wouldn't have bothered.
