Strayer University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (151)
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.
There is so much turn over in this school. My guidance counselor changes 4 times, financial aid person 3 times, I've had 4 Dean's., 4 success coaches.... In two years. They are like car salesman. They do and say any thing to get you in the door and then you can't even get a return call. My veteran benefit was screwed up so bad because of incompetents and so was my financial aid. They don't care about wounded veterans ADA accommodations. The voc. Rehab counselor advised against going there but I didn't listen.
I've been attending Strayer University since July 2017 (summer term) without any issues with financial aid. I'm pursuing an associates degree in business administration. Near the end of their summer term hurricane season began where I reside in Georgia. Due to the effects of the hurricanes, the university offered effected students extra time to complete work that was due near the end of the term. As follows I received "I" grades for Incomplete for the Summer term. At this point I'm thinking everything is fine as I enrolled and completed the Fall 2017 term which started in October. Mind you I received financial aid for both Summer and Fall terms. Now it's January, and the Winter term has started and now I'm told that until my "I" grades are updated to As, Bs, Cs, etc that I'm not eligible for aid and will have to pay out of pocket. How screwed up is that??? Both of my past instructors "supposedly" submitted requests to update the Incomplete grades to actual grades, but nothing has been updated with Strayer and now I have a balance due from removal of my expected aid. It doesn't take days upon days to complete grade changes/updates. My advice is don't attend Strayer unless you want a creative way to get screwed over. I've called countless times with no response and no one is able to tell me how long this will take. Everyone gives you the runaround and acts as if you are bothering them. So in the meantime I'm expected to attend classes that I can't pay for without financial aid. Then they wonder why for-profit schools get a bad reputation.
Strayer University in Columbus, Georgia has showed my lack of care and integrity for my education. Strayer University has caused my life to be hard because each day I'm dealing with a negative credit report due to Strayer University. I hope that no other student has the experience like I did.
