"Strayer University has many Bachelor’s, along with Associates degrees to choose from. My experience here at Strayer has been like no other, due to always having support around from Student Staff, Teachers, and Deans! They are so supportive and helping."

"For the last month or so I am desperately trying to change my legal last name. NO ONE seems to be following through. I am wasting tons of my time sending emails and documents and no one does anything. They don't even bother to respond! That was a complete opposite when they wanted you to sign up for this school...Your employees should take some of the classes that you offering online. I am about to transfer somewhere else."

"Good experience enjoyed the hybrid environment Professors provided great learning skills, The Dean at my home campus was great, Willing to help however he could. The only part I had any problems was finical aid, I was given paperwork to fill out wasn't given help from my home campus finical aid office. This led to me going to the campus Dean asking for assistance. Great learning experience,"

"USELESS Degree, and to top it off, they are losing accreditation or something like that. If you haven't graduated, find a new school! When applying I was told I could even apply to positions while in the program as many institutions hire people pursing masters degrees. That was a complete lie, no employer even had the decency to tell me they weren't interested, they just never replied. I even applied with STRAYER, even they WOULD NOT hire me! ARE YOU SERIOUS? and now that their program is not going to be accredited, I fear NO ONE WILL EVER hire me with this degree. OH and every complain you hear about success coaches, financial aid...it is all true based on my experience. I had soooo much trouble trying to reach ANYONE! Once I was enrolled, I was practically ignored. Thanks to other students posting in the student commons, I was able to figure stuff out. It was NOT BECAUSE of the school! DO YOUR RESEARCH!"

"Strayer University is an amazing school. I take classes online but they have multiple campuses around the United States for students to take in classroom courses. The campus is really close to me so if I needed to go to the school for anything I could. They are very professional and are concerned about their students. If I miss a deadline they will check on me to make sure everything is ok. They respond to all your questions in a timely manner and have multiple programs and website links to assist you with your studies. They offer free tutoring for your classes and they participate in buying your books back when you are done with the semester. They are constantly emailing and calling to make sure I am on the right track and that I dont need any assistance with anything. This is the first school I have attended that want to make sure you are doing good and not struggling. When you sign up, they send you a laptop for free to do your courses and if you graduate, you get to keep the computer with no charges. They send you $20.00 for your birthday every year to spend in the Strayer Store to get cool school attire, cups and more. This school is very educated when it comes to financial aid and they always make sure that if they do not know and answer, they will look into it and find out within 24 hours. This school is very thorough and very compassionate about your education. IF you have emergencies come up they are sincere and usually if you explain the situation in a timely manner, they can give you an extension. They always seem to be concerned about you as a person and they are always willing to help in any way possible. I would choose this school over and over again."

"I started attending this amazing school in 2008 as a young soldier on recruiting duty in Orlando Florida. Here I am 11 years later, many moves, many deployments etc finally ready to graduate in dec of 2019. My time with Strayer has been nothing but amazing. The staff at Sand lake campus was Phenomenal. They were available at the snap of a finger. I will say that I think I may be the first student to not have a bad professor during my time in school. I enjoyed my professors because they too understood the juggling school work and working full time. This school in my opinion best suits the Military student. I am not sure a non military student could afford this school from the research I did do on it. There were a few minor things I did not like but I tend to think this is across the board when it comes to online schools. First, formatting for papers and teachers preference. I would submit papers in one class and the professor would say outstanding job on formatting then I would use the same format for another and get marked off. Second, all of the papers required for online courses. I totally understand why and the validity to make online as formidable as an in residence counter part. I just do not understand some of the things I wrote about as actually paramount to my learning process and the actual career field itself. I wrote a paper on different types of terrorism and essentially which I preferred and to create my own definition. While this seems like an easy paper, to me it had no educational value to it. Lastly, I think doing more discussion versus papers would make more value to the upper level classes. Being able to share experiences versus what a book or research paper has to do with a situation would be more beneficial in my opinion. I have learned more from group chat and what people have experienced vs a book."

"I enjoyed being in school. However, I now owe $60000 in student loans. I had to cancel attending graduation because of family issues that warranted my attention. It's a year since I finished and I still have no certificate or diploma. The more I think about, the more I think something might be wrong with this picture."

"I graduated from Strayer University in 2012 with a degree in Business Administration and I"M GOING BACK!!!!! If you listen to all this noise on here you could miss out on a great opportunity. You just need to pay attention during the entire process. Your FAFSA paperwork has to be completed correctly. You have to ensure you stay on top of your expenses and studies. Stop blaming others for your own faults. Strayer's curriculum is comparable. They may not have the most updated Instructor's but their curriculum has helped me. Their eleven week courses are sufficient to ensure you actually learn something! Do not be fooled with going to another place where the speed-track you! It will not be worth it. If you don't want Strayer calling you, then don't waste their time. Get in there and take responsibility for your process, degree and life or get out of the way for those who are trying to get schooling done!"

"Started with international business, was told that was phased out, switched to Business Management, in the LAST QUARTER OF MY DEGREE that was phased into a BBA, the degree in absolutely DID NOT WANT bc it's useless. Also found out 1 month before graduating that international business was available under a Bachelor of Science degree. RAILROADED."
