Student & Graduate Reviews (154)
Worse school for Financial aid services. first time at this school started April 2nd. I'm in the last week of school and still having to send over documents for financial aid. This is a like a scam, I have never attended a school where they want you to change your taxes from 2015. Mind you I attended a local college in 2016-2017 and completed the program with financial aid with no problem. Came to this school and it has been one thing after another with financial aid. And my taxes were done by a professional tax service with an accountant. Please please please stay away from this school. I am in the process of trying to find a school where I can complete my education.
I worked for a Chrysler dealership and they used to pay for my school. Worst experience ever, I'm glad that I didn't paid anything. Money hungry folks they care ZERO about you and your future. They lie and they say sorry... Go to WGU or a real meaningful option. Strayer is for profit they just care about the money of their investors. That's it.
If you have to take a break, no matter the reason, even though you're almost done, you lose the graduation tuition grant funds. An equivalent of 5 classes! How convenient for them. I now would have to fork out $1700 (+) each course to earn my degree, instead of just 1 course.
This school is horrible. White Attending, I fell ill in two semesters, I wanted to return to part-time, they wouldn't let me although I had submitted 20+pages of medical documents. The appeal process was so short, I feel that consideration was lacking. No help at all.
I typically do not write reviews on websites. However, I am writing one about this "university" because it does not, in my opinion, reflect what a university should. Their professors are unfair, and do not grade properly. I received a zero, simply because of one mistake on an assignment. I have called multiple times to reach out to a Dean and nothing has happened. My next step is reporting them to the Department of Education for unfair grading policies and unfair treatment of students. I sincerely hope that more students become aware and DO NOT fall into this school.
Ask direct question to the persons with job titles that are educated and train to advise you on the right career path. Get an advisory report in writing. Know the requirements for the job yiu are seeking and if this institutions is excepted in your particular state. Otherwise they will take all of your FA and waist your time.
I would not recommend this school at all. As a graduate, I have not seen the benefit of earning my masters degree from this "institution." However, the debt is prominent. All they care about is money and, trust me, the price is not worth the reward. Looking back, my courses weren't very tailored to my degree, the instructors were incompetent, the resources were sparse, and, again, they were very money hungry. No offered internships. An overall waste of time and a lot of money!
This school seems to have great customer service and everything in the beginning. but as soon as you get into your semester everything goes wrong. I have been dealing with this school for the past few months and all I been doing is battling with the financial aid department on trying to send my personal information over. The search and financial aid department seem to not care and only will respond to you when they want to respond to you. some of the coaches will only work on your problems when they want to work on your problems with the school. One small little situation can be taken to great measures and will make you fail the semester. I don't know if the staff is always like that but it seems like the people here just don't care and they will get to you when they feel like it. I would not recommend this school. This school is awful and straining.
Incompetent management and faculty. Degree is costly but ultimately is worthless. Persons would be better served in a more stable and dignified university. It is surprising that such an institution has accreditation of any kind. Hopefully students will not fall into this trap.
They will completely mess up your financial aid , do not go here , they will try to get you in the door by offering a few lap top. Do not go here you will be very disappointed. I went here for 2 semesters passing all my classes and I have summited three pages of documents and still have not received my aid, this is the first school to do that.
