Strayer University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (147)
I really enjoyed my experience at Strayer. I had great professors and a wonderful program. I received my MBA in Health Services Administration. I enjoyed my time there and had great professors that were knowledgebale. They really focus on adult learners and staff is always nice and always willing to help. Professors were nice also. Admin was understanding. Flexible online and on campus options. My MBA from Strayer led me to a great job as a Business Systems Analyst and making a good salary. You put in the work and get rewarded.
My review on Strayer is it's an awesome school. Strayer is an adult environment school. They are here to help you gain the knowledge and experience. I have the education from Strayer and I gain plenty of experience. I just have to use those experiences to find my way to a career. It is not Strayer's fault that the companies won't hire you.
Please do not go there. All they care about is the fees. I will not recommend this school. Graduated with 85,000 debt but they could not help me at least get an entry level job. All they care about is to register for classes. I regret going to this school
Programs are good, however if your an international student your doomed because Strayer does NOTHING for international students. Students get no help whatsoever as it relates to financial aid or even scholarships. I'm drained and I got no help because I'm not American I guess
Best Decision I Ever Made. My Experience Was Great And I Had Every Tool Needed To Pass All Of My Classes. My Professors Were Really Nice And Helpful......mk2003
This university is excellent in regards to helping students reach their educational goals! The staff they hire is talented and are more than willing to help students excel in furthering their education. The professors the university has teaching have real world experiences and know what their talking about. The teaching methods the professors use is engaging and sparks interesting conversations either on line or in class. In addition the free tutoring and success coach helps students map out a individualized plan to ensure the successful completion of the degree the student plans on getting.
The school is great and is designed for students that juggle multiple commitments outside of the classroom. If you are looking for a diploma mill or some other "easy" online school of which to collect a refund check, look elsewhere. The instructors are quite strict on plagiarism and will easily weed out students who are not serious contenders for their degrees. As far as financial aid is concerned, the school does a fair job at trying to contact students. If they send you an email detailing that documentation is needed for review--why continue to ignore it? In my experience, they have handled all matters professionally and expediently. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a decently priced graduate degree and cannot afford to attend a traditional school, which seems to be the majority of their graduate student base; additionally, students who are established in careers and are looking for advancement will find the school a prime pick. The course rigor here is on par with our graduate programs of similar nature, but without TAs as instructors. All of the faculty has been supremely qualified.
I am a Post 9/11 Veteran currently attending StrayerU in DC. Strayer has a great Cadre support system that cares about Students. The Professors are all experienced professionals who use real world application to bring the best out of students to maximize knowledge. The online platform iCampus is better than most public or bigger colleges I have seen so navigating around online and on their app makes it a breeze to know when action items are due and what's been completed. Most of the students I interact with online and on campus are busy working professionals who are looking for a flexible class schedule to fit in education. The financial aid portion was easy unlike some other comments posted here. The Strayer staff makes it was easy for Veterans and other financial aid students to enroll, etc. I highly recommend StrayerU.
What I enjoyed most about the school was the fact that many of the teachers were industry professionals. So, I received official lessons *and* the unofficial lessons. I also enjoyed the flexibility. Like anything in life - what you get out of an educational experience will be directly related to what you put into it.
I have read the negative reviews of Strayer and I am so glad that I attended the university before I read them. I would have never found out what a great school it is. I have experienced both online and brick and mortar campuses and universities, non-profit and now for-profit, so this is coming from someone who has true experience. This has been one of THE BEST experiences I have ever had. By far, the best online. They have not been around since 1892 for no reason. Every quarter I say, "This is the best professor I have had," then I enter into the next quarter and say the same. They are all professionals and brilliant in their expertise and fields. When I first registered, I did so kind of last minute, so I needed a lot of help with financial aid. The financial aid person not only helped me, but called the financial aid provider with me on the phone, which was amazing. I get every refund credit on time... within two to three weeks of the class is starting. So, financial aid was and is not a problem. The success coach calls to register me for future classes and at that time checks up. While I initially thought I should get more phone calls, my grades (4.0) have proven that I do not need to be handheld. I am an adult and if I need help, I can call... reach out and ask for it. The work is rigorous... really rigorous but is relevant and real-time, real life applicable. People tend to be more vocal, when they have a bad experience making it appear to be a regularity for the university, or anything for that matter, as a whole. They often do not tell what they have or have not done to add to the situation. So, here is a positive case... I do my part, Strayer does its part, at the end there will be a graduation! Yes with debt, but I would have had it no matter what school I went to.
