Please seriously reconsider attending this school.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Please seriously reconsider attending this school. I am not sure if all of the locations are as bad as the RTP campus but it really stinks. Financial aid and advising are a mess. Once you attend the class you can't drop it and some of the instructors are very RUDE. If you fail the class that you cannot drop, you lose your financial aid so please be warned. Take your time and look at other options prior to signing up for this school. Classes are way too accelerated and you will not get a quality education for what you are paying. For $395 a credit hour I really thought it would have been better quality.

Question
The business office and student resources are suchBusiness - Management and Administration
The business office and student resources are such a joke. they are not willing to help at all. constantly mess up everything, call you at last minute for YOU to change, like they dont get PAID generously to sit in thier clean offices and do NOTHING. Price is a joke for what you get. Professors - some good, but most are jokes too.... you would be better off to homeschool yourself than to attend this dump and pay for it.

Question
Attending the RTP campus for nearly a yearAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
Attending the RTP campus for nearly a year now and please read the other posts. I recently graduated with 2 associates with a GPA over 3.5 so I don't consider myself lacking in any way but this school is a complete joke. For the price, please look into different educational options (like I am doing now). Financial Aid is a joke, I have had 4 admissions counselors in the 9 months I have been there. Some staff members are professional while others shouldn't teach at an alternative high school let alone a university. Like I said, take the other reviews into consideration prior to signing your life away for this school. Getting an "education" to further yourself doesn't do any good if you don't learn anything.
