"I would not recommend attending this school at all. I have been a student for 3 years and have been on the Dean's list for most of those years. The success coach i have been assigned does not return any of my calls or emails and has completely ignored me. This has led to me getting dropped from classes and signed up for classes that are not pertinent to my major. I have made requests to have a new one provided but this has not happened. This school is happy to take your money but that is where it stops. they do not care about their students."

"Strayer has nothing to offer an actual student. As a former student I experienced unprofessional professors, no advisor support, difficulty in getting Strayer staff on the phone for any questions and financial services stalling my every request. My personal experience was like pulling teeth no matter which way I tried to go with them. Strayer lures you in via false advertisements and a false sense of support but you don't realize it's too late until you interact with fellow Strayer students and see how dismayed they truly are. The list of negative experiences is never ending. From a former Strayer student, please avoid this particular school at all costs."

"Nice people to work with but I have found that the degree is not respected in the workplace, mostly because it is open admission. Better to start at a community college for free, then transfer to a traditional four-year college to finish. Do not recommend."

"Strayer is barely a school. The professors don't help and you can't fight your grades. They pretty much don't care and just have everything graded on automation or hire others to grade it for them. I went 6 classes writing papers and get to class 7 and that professor tells me I have everything wrong with the way I write papers. I asked them how I wrote everything incorrectly, they didn't tell me, just that I needed to submit my paper to the virtual writing center. I do now before I submit it to the class for grading, and I still have problems. Then, I get to the next class after I finally get a decent grade on one paper, and the new professor tells me I'm writing it wrong again. So I go a year writing papers for this college consistently A's and B's, get one professor whom I am not consistent with, change my ways and plead for the professor to help because you know this is a college and I want to learn the correct way. Especially at the outrageous price that this school is charging. But yet that doesn't happen, because every professor is different and no one wants to tell me the correct way. So basically be prepared to teach yourself. It's been over a year and I can honestly tell you I have no idea how to write a paper the correct way. This is not a learning program."

"The Master's of Public Accounting program at Strayer University is designed purposely with the sole intent of adequately preparing a candidate to successfully pass the CPA exams. The four major courses ( Business and Economic Environment, Auditing and Assurance, Regulations and Advance Financial Reporting) are the exact courses tested on the CPA exams and are taught proficiently by well-rounded, knowledgeable and experienced professionals. Furthermore, the institution provides the candidate with a complimentary CPA review package at the end of the program. Upon successful completion of the Public Accounting program, it's certain to meet the requirements of employers with competitive advantage in tax preparation, auditing, financial analysis and much more. In other words, the tools Strayer provides for the MPA program coupled with the candidate's skill set and tenacity makes that dream of becoming a CPA attainable; I have no regrets."

"Overall it was a good experience. Some teachers are very liberal and I didn't enjoy there classes. Also in most classes if you are not agreeing with the other students they don't wanna have a discuss with you which makes the weekly discusses very hard if you don't agree with what they are saying."

"I am scared to death after reading these reviews. I previously attended another online college and earned my degree. I never had a problem with financial aid. I went on the FAFSA site and did a correction to my 2019 FAFSA and added Strayer University to it. I didn't change anything else. My income was already on there so again, I changed nothing else. I waited about two days and recurved an email that my FAFSA was processed and it was sent to my chosen school. To me that means it was approved for X amount so I didn't think much of it until financial aid started text messaging me saying I was selected for verification for 2017. It is almost 2020 and I don't see what 2017 has to do with right now. Literally nothing has changed since 2016 as far as my income. All that happened was me switching schools. I emailed my 2017 tax return to financial aid and I get a text that says they need my transcript and I have to fax it. So I ordered the transcript and after that I decided to look at reviews and see if anybody else had this issue. So many of you have the same problem and now I am freaking out that they are going to keep dragging it out and put me in the hole thousands of dollars. I am not a bitter, disgruntled student with poor grades. I had a 3.8 for two years at my previous school. I am scared of being screwed over. I really feel that before u should be able to order books, get a laptop, or even start classes, that the financial aid situation should be handled. My previous college never put money on my bookstore account until after I signed my award letter. This review is only in regards to financial aid. I have not yet started yet, and may not even attend."
