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.
I am not happy with this school. Since I started in January 2019, it's been an up-hill battle with their verification process. The school wants me to amend my taxes for 2016 to better suit their needs and it's not the truth. I have spoken to my tax person, and he has said there is no need to amend your taxes because I was within my legal rights to file head of household. Furthermore, I have contacted my Success Couch, for the last three days, and he still has not returned my calls.
Play close attention to what the staff says, most don't know what they are doing, the rest have attitudes as if they are doing you a favor by you being a student with Strayer. I've been lied on, promised tutoring and the teacher tutor didn't show and their so called we help each student and all that is a lie.
I am currently enrolled with Strayer and am having an excellent experience. If I need anything from my coach or professors I have been to make contact without an issue. I feel people forget these people have lives outside of the school too. They may not reply right back when you want. However in my personal experience it has always been right in time or in a timely manner.
All went well!! They are recently updating their curriculum as well.Success coach reached out to me time to time. All went smooth. I am graduating in June. Any technical issues with icampus handled promptly. Professors helped to understand the curriculum.
Please do not go to this school they do not care about you at all. I applied online and a coach by the name of F. called me literally 3 minutes later after I applied online trying to get me to enroll and she would literally call you everyday to make sure you done this and you done that..so after Im finally enrolled she no longer answers any of my phone calls never ever replies back to my emails and does not help me with anything...I have been having a hard time getting financial aid..which I dont know what school sets you up with classes until you pay for it! But they sure did and Im sure F. probably got some type of bonus or credit or something on getting me enrolled...and then another thing they do is put me and dumb classes like classes to that have to do with learning how to use a computer...Strayer University does not care about your success all they want is your money! Waste of time
I went to Strayer University hoping to get a MBA in business in Downers Grove Illinois. A couple of my professors were pretty cool. The Law Professor was really good. One fellow answered most of the questions, there was like 5 students in the class. One clas we had was almost like grade school, the professor did not prepare for the class, and went around the room calling on every student to answer the question. The Librarian wasnt too nice, if u asked too many questions isnt was like you were bothering her space. Not too friendly place, okay. I wasted close 49,000 dollars which I am not doing anything with that knowledge whatsoever. Yes it would be nice to have my 40,000 back and spend it on something worth while.
It seems that most of the complaints are due to financial aid or "poor" professors and I want prospective students to know that this happens everywhere. In the most respectful way, some of these posts should be ignored, judging by listed concern(s) and the large amount of grammatical errors within the posts. When I enrolled at Strayer, I had an Associate's in Business; if I stay on the right track, I will complete my Bachelor's in 2019. I urge you all not to become fearful of enrolling based off negative comments. "Different strokes for different folks"; gain insight for yourselves based off your own experience. Good luck!
