"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."

"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!"

"This school is a rip off. I was promised financial aid for my first term. The success coach and student advisors told me to constantly reach out to the financial aid department and submit numerous documents in order to recoieve my financial aid towards my tuition because I received financial aid from another school in the past. Once they convinced me to continue my education with them through the drop out period, I was responsible for my tuition for that term. I informed Strayer that I was not financially able to pay out of pockect before they persuade me to enrollled. Straight rip off, be aware!! The curriculum was very easy but I but if you don't have the funds to pay out off pocket, stay away!"

"This school is moraless, heartless, liars. The administration will say anything. Financial aid is impossible to work with. The advisors change without notice. And no one can help you. Trust me, choose a different school. Youll be ashamed to have a degree with Strayer on it."

"I started the process in May 2018 for Summer classes. Everything was fine at first. I was due a disbursement August 8th only to find out August 6th that my High school transcript doesn't show graduation date. Strayer received my Pell grant then charged me for my classes. My transcript DOES state I graduated. I talked to many people and still no progress. I will NOT enroll after this semester"

"I am an online MBA student and feel that the technology has been very helpful and easy to follow. The books, lectures etc. are relevant and there should be no reason an individual cannot attain a 3.0 or better. I say this having transferred from another online school where the technology and instruction were essentially self-study courses and antiquated systems. On the negative side, I am a bit disappointed at the quality, I hope the school becomes a little discerning at acceptance rates so that the degree has a little more credibility in the business world."
