I enjoyed being in school. However, I now owe $60000 in student loans. I had to cancel attending graduation because of family issues that warranted my attention. It's a year since I finished and I still have no certificate or diploma. The more I think about, the more I think something might be wrong with this picture.
Started with international business, was told that was phased out, switched to Business Management, in the LAST QUARTER OF MY DEGREE that was phased into a BBA, the degree in absolutely DID NOT WANT bc it's useless. Also found out 1 month before graduating that international business was available under a Bachelor of Science degree. RAILROADED.
I was in the process of the application process and thought that everything would be easy but then my adviser stopped calling and emailing me so I decided to attend the university of Phoenix. Later to figure out that they charged me for the laptop I DIDNT receive and the classes I DIDNT TAKE. dont go here or apply
I've been enrolled with Strayer since 2017, I've had some issues but not many. My biggest problem is the student loans, they are rather high. But other than that I don't have a problem getting my financial aid on time or my coach getting in touch with me.
The school is horrible I tried for months to get the paperwork for my financial aid fixed but no one could help me. It was like no one knew who I was supposed to talk to everyone told me to talk to everyone else. I would go to the campus physically whenever I could I tried for months. The financial aid messed up my paperwork which caused me to miss the deadline and I had a payment of over $3ooo. We were supposed to have a "payment arrangement" since I am disabled and have no other source of income. I have no idea how you take the entire school refund which is about $1500 and leave me with about $50? I would not recommend going here I am currently looking to transfer. Good luck.
I've been with Strayer since 2002 and although I've seen quite a few significant changes over the years, they have always been able to fit in with my schedule. As a husband, father of 7 and full-time employee I needed an institution that was capable of fitting my schedule. Strayer has been able to do this. As far as the Financial department goes, I would not know much about this since my company has paid 100% from my Associate's Degree all the way through my Master's Degree. Having said this, though, the cost of the courses are very expensive...if my company wasn't paying 100% there is no way I would have been able to do this. We're talking around $2,500 per course out of pocket before books costs are even calculated into the equation. I can say I've learned a lot, the instruction was challenging and the professors were subject matter experts who were mostly all professionals in the fields that they taught. I'm happy that not only am I graduating this June (all classes are already completed) with a Master's Degree in Information Systems, but I was also able to maintain a 4.0 GPA from my very first course all the way to the last course. This isn't because Strayer is easy by any means...most of the time the "class grade" was much lower than my grades. I just have strong work ethic and take my education very seriously. Overall very satisfied with the level of instruction that I was provided and the professionalism of all people I interacted with through the institution from my student coach all the way to the deans.
I've been at Strayer for about three years. It's ok. Comparing it to the local community college that I also attended, it's about the same, except for the course. I've had some pretty good professors and learned a lot. I've had three success coaches since I started because one was promoted to Dean. The other two still work with me. I cannot speak on financial aid because I use VA benefits. I've never had a problem with it. I think the tuition is way too high. I have three classes to go until I graduate. It has been a good experience so far. And no, I'm not employed by Strayer.
I am a current student at Strayer University and now that I am very serious about my education and have done very well in the three semesters that I have attended, I am now being forced to pay the full tuition thanks to the tax verification process. I have submitted to them my 2016 and 2017 tax transcripts and they keep insisting on that I needed to submit an amended tax return to them that I did not have. I am now waiting since I was forced to amend my taxes and now I am facing a large bill of over $10,000 if my amended taxes aren't completed by March 18. Plus I am not receiving a 1098T from the school. No wonder my student success coach is starting to act irritated everytime my husband (who is also a student and going through this verification mess and he receives disability) and I try to reach out to her. This school is here to add debt and not success. DEBT doesn't equal Success
After attending two years at strayer university they say I owe them, I got charged double for a year. Very disappointed because I could not finish my degree. The teachers are ok, its financial aid you gotta watch.. I think I would had finished if I had chosen another university
I have finished my MS degree with Strayer University in 2017, I had a great time learning and participating with instructors and other students. In general, as we all know, school is no fun. You need to work hard to have a better grade especially a master degree requires a lot of work and write papers almost every week. I have taken a few online classes, but they didn't fit with, so most my class was on campus, that would help to learn more.
