This school makes everything IMPOSSIBLE for students whoJun 22 2015Unknown
This school makes everything IMPOSSIBLE for students who want to take summer classes. The Financial Aid Office gives a HUGE obstacles for summer aid. Even if students takes out a private loan on themselves to cover tuition, they take forever to process the loan unless you go through 100 of those useless phone operators who will give you all kinds of different answers to get you off their back. Even when you finally get the loan approved, they keep delaying the disbursement till 3rd week through the session!! How do you expect students to do well in summer classes when they cannot buy textbooks till last 2 weeks till final??! It's really ironic that the school advrtise so hard on summer school while all they do is giving students hard time to participate...
This is a horrific place for disabled studentsSep 24 2010Education
This is a horrific place for disabled students. The office established for supporting the disabled students is mostly an excuse for a few people to collect a paycheck by doing as little as possible to actually assist disabled students. Requests for accommodation were dismissed and denied with reasons including "because we don't offer that accommodation". The director of their disabled services dept. looks at customized accommodations (accommodations not on their list of services "offered") as too "time consuming" for her to deal with. The attitude of the school's compliance officer is predictable as he is the head of the school's HR department. Hearings of complaints by students include NO student advocates but include advocates and representatives of staff and faculty. Neither is this a university that cares about its disabled student population nor is it a university with any serious intent to comply with the ADA. Disabled students should attend a different CSU campus where treatment of the disabled is taken more seriously.As a California tax payer and voter for well over 35 years, I am convinced given what I've now seen with CSUSB that measures that would provide funds for supporting CSUSB are not being well spent at all.
I attended this university after having attended aMar 18 2010Business - Management and Administration
I attended this university after having attended a private university. Primarily, the tuition is what caused me to choose this university. However, after this term when few classes are available except for online, I might rethink attending here. In Public Aministration, many of the falculty are pompous and self-absorbed with getting their name published. However, I have had the pleasure of coming in contact with several professors and adjunct professors I would not hesitate to take any class he or she taught.Several of the students I have come across are know-it-all egg-heads, who in the real world would find the pomposity challenged. I have had the pleasure of meeting genuinely interesting individuals who are attending as commuters and international students. For those looking for the typical college experience, Cal-State San Berdu is not for you. Go elsehwhere. For students who are looking for value for money spent on tuiton. Welcome!! Make the best of your time here.
I was a new father and working full-timeNov 30 2007Business - Management and Administration
I was a new father and working full-time in San Bernardino. Examining the daunting task of getting an MBA while working full time in the area, I was somewhat limited in my choices -- Univ of Redlands, Cal State San Bernardino, and Univ of Phoenix. In factoring all the benefits and BIG TUITION COSTS, I concluded that Cal State was the best value for the $$$$. Dollar for dollar, CSUSB was a GREAT choice. I really enjoyed getting to know my professors and engaging the academic material. Some professors really appreciate the graduate students who work hard and engage because of the welcome contrast against a few LAZY undergrads!
