Strayer University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (147)
This is my 2nd year at strayer & I love it. The professors & coaches always respond to emails very quickly, the finiancial aid process was a little hectic but I expected it to be so and now everything's right on track. I highly recommend this school.
I personally have had no issues with this school since I started in 2014. I have had access to my coaches and instructors throughout and even got my best friend to enroll this year. Working to achieve your dreams is super hard and demands that you possess a characteristic that is strong enough to be proactive independently. Things do not always just land in your lap so it is up to you to make sure things are in order. Best wishes!
This is my first semester with Strayer and the last one. I have had the worst experience with Strayer. The financial aid department is the worst that I have ever seen. Why allow a student to start classes and not have them approved for financial aid. Instead you say that they are going to get you approved and allow you to start taking classes and then make several excuses as to documents that you need and then when you turn them in they find something else you need. I have been going through this with them since beginning of June 2017. So now I have to pay out of pocket for something that should have been paid for by financial aid. I have already enrolled in another school. I would not recommend this school to anyone unless you have the money to pay out of pocket and even if you did I would pick a better school. The staff is the worst and very unprofessional and rude and not helpful at all, even the Dean!
I have been enrolled for almost 2 months now doing my school work and turning it in on time and know they are saying that they don't accept my high school diploma I mean what the hell they say at the beginning o we take your diploma and now into two months after they call and say they are dropping me from my classes because they don't take my diploma I wouldn't recommend this college to anyone they are nothing but a liars.
So far I've had a good experience. It is true there were a couple of hiccups getting my financial aid and VA educational benefits sorted out, but I started the process early enough, and was proactive in reaching out to the dean of admissions and my success coach when it seemed the financial aid office was having issues with my paperwork, and everything worked out just fine. Also, the school does make it clear they don't have many resources for work placement, so you need to do your own legwork when it comes to finding yourself a job. It is a school for people who are self-motivated and disciplined, and doing the required course work every week is, well, required. You don't have to be a genius to do well, but you need decent writing and reading comprehension skills, and a willingness to give it your all. In crude honesty, other students are not there to see you through the academic programs, as we are all busy adults trying to get through each week's course load. However, the professors are willing to provide extra guidance if needed, and your success coach will be happy to help you figure out which classes to sign up for and it what order. There are online student forums where current students do log on and provide answers to questions about different school administrative processes as well. If you are looking for an easy on-line program, this isn't it. It is legitimate education, which is never easy to achieve. I still struggle sometimes to get school work done every week, but I think it is well worth it. I've attended brick-and-mortar not-for-profit schools, and I can assure you the same rule applies: you get out as much as you put in. Hoping to see the program through, as I am learning quite a bit, and getting a bachelor's degree is a personal goal of mine.
Strayers Financial Aid S****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE WORST EVER!!!!!!!!!This will be my last quarter. I have already enrolled in another school for Fall quarter.I have been an online student for 3 quarters and every quarter its a financial aid issue. I'm over it!!
Please before enrolling into this school be sure that all of your financial documents are completed. They are the f****** worst. They are rude apologizing for nothing making you wait seven to ten business days for nothing!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I never would have choose this school the instructors were not my problem it is the student financial services. I feel no student should be allowed to begin courses until their financial aid has cleared. Is this even a real place to receive a degree I wonder even. After I am finished with this summer term I will not return and I will not recommend this university to anyone.
I have read some of the reviews below but I will have to say that you get out what you put in. I have been attending Strayer since 2015 and I haven't had any issues. The professors have been helpful and my success coach calls me every semester and even return my calls if I need her. I work hard and do the required course work. It has been a pleasant experience and I look forward to graduating next year. I am sure everyone's personal experience is just that. The best advise I have is if you are going to go to school be sure you are completely dedicated to it because it is not an easy thing to do and a lot of work will be required of you.
Don't attend this school cause the teachers,and so call coaches are no help. As for saying they are there to help such a lie and even the teacher are just as bad too. Once I'm done with these first to courses im moving on to a better online university. Listen to what these reviews are saying and don't waste your time here. The intro course teacher and IT teacher are nothing but rude. Also as for being there for you major lies and come on The teachers really look for students to kick butt and suck up. I mean come on when hard working people don't kiss butt or parents with children have better things to do. And the suck up students stand a better chance at passing because that's what the teachers want most of all. Beware of this university overall experience was and so far has been hell. They talked a good game and let you down in the end big time. Run fast and don't bother getting information from this university ever. Never believe anything they tell you and worset mistake ever giving them a chance. Again never believe them and they are all about money big time. Don't doubt anyone about this fake lies or when they say classes are cheap. They are not cheap and the other students are no help either. Anyone looking to attend don't and run really fast. I never liked the issues they tried to tell you c***. And believe no one when you have a problem, they don't solve it at all either. Nothing but c*** so far and in week 4 wanting to drop classes already. So dumb as .
Would not recommend to anyone.The school only cares about the money. I have not been able to get in contact with my success coach or my professors since I started my classes. Due to that I could not inform them that I was going to miss a week of assignments. Now a few days ago I got a message from someone at the school saying I missed my classes and if it happens again I could be put on academic suspension or worst kicked out and charged a fee of 50% of my tuition. Worst school I have ever attended. Really would not recommend.
