| I started school when the competitive advantage to Hesser College was the tuition cost being on the low side, but compensated much more for its poor reputation within the community. I graduated with a two year degree and desire for advancement. The school did not provide me with tranferable credits, much to my dismay. I decided that completing a four year program should do its own work and create something positive and transferable in its own way. I have never lied so many times to complete strangers about my education. I have graduated with two degrees from Hesser College. Job placement is a joke. The Administrative advisors have no clue how to provide advise for success, infact being setup in classes with required prereq's that were never met. If you fail a class you can pay to take it over as many times, plus interest. The school pushes absolutely nothing more than admission. It does not matter if you have ever solved a math problem in your life. This school will accept you. "No child left behind here"..except they are passing full grown adults who cannot finish a basic alegbra problem for the life of them. If you have no idea on how to navigate a computer, this school will honor you with a degree! I am disgraced with the amout of money I have spent here. the Tuition had increased every year that I attended. I wouldnt be so upset if they had just increased their standards to a school that had more intention than their pockets. I am sorry to say, but their profits have their interests, not the fundamentals of a good college. NOT WORTH THE MONEY! Go to a school you can be proud of.Thank you Hesser for $45,000 of shame. I still lie about my education! |

| Some truth about HESSER.|
1)Anyone can get in and I mean anyone! There is no SAT it's a placement test that you can take over and over again untill your able to pass it.
2)The Faculty has some of the worse teachers out there! I was in the CJ program and after a year of classes I started to notice how I didn't fit in..(Not because Im an outcast or I feel Im better than most) I just notice that 90% were poverty level people along with a large majority of high school drop outs.
3)They will scam you and I mean scam you for hundreds of thousands of dollars!(Im a vet that uses the Post 9-11 GI Bill and I received financial aid which was the pell grant. It took almost 6 months to pay to me now understand my tuition is 100% paid!Long story short they still haven't paid and are scammers and a always find a reason not to pay I.E Lost check, vacation someone is out of the office)
4)The majority of the students have to be special education of some type.In my 390 level Psych class a girl couldn't read! This is no lie she literally could no read!
5)The facilities are nothing but crap. I would love to see the books on this school and where it's money goes.Literally computers from the late 90's one printer per 30 computers! Now the best part, There literally are bums who sleep there (students who Im guessing don't have a place to live and no not housing this was at the Portsmouth Campus)6)The worse thing that has ever happened to me was when I walked into the computer lab to print up a paper..Well it smelt like human "shit" literally like someone had shit themselves and just walked around with it in there pants! Well someone did! The guy stayed through all his classes and NO ONE ASKED HIM TO LEAVE! Please avoid this school at all cost! It's a total scam and they will take anything they can from you!
