The Student Financial Services office here will makeQuite BrightArt & Design Department
The Student Financial Services office here will make you wish you had never stepped foot into this school. The only way this school cares about you is if you are rich or have your tuition covered by scholarships. Anything else, YOU WILL STRUGGLE. The SFS office will NOT help you find loans, scholarships, grants, or anything. Their overall attitude is unhelpful, inconsiderate, and lazy. You feel a lot of "You are on your own" here. I had one woman be downright cold and rude to me. They refuse to set up payment plans if you are no longer a student. And most recently, they double dipped into my bank account. They were already paid and decided to pay themselves twice this month. My account was put into NEGATIVE DIGITS. And, to make things worse, they REFUSED TO REFUND ME. How am i supposed to eat this week? Winthrop doesn't care who they starve or put on the street as long as they get their money. Their SFS office is run by thieves. Be Warned.

I thought I would learn something worthwhile atBrightPsychology
I thought I would learn something worthwhile at Winthrop. Boy was I wrong. Professors tell you how much they hate their jobs and will not take time in or out of class to help in anyway. Waste of money. The records and registration department is a joke taking to you as if you are 3 years old and should not complain when they make an error.

As a transfer student, Winthrop is the worstQuite BrightArt & Design Department
As a transfer student, Winthrop is the worst school to go to. I enjoyed myself more at my past college and learned more too. I made a 3.9 GPA at my old college; however, here at WU, I am having troubles maintaining a B! The teachers here are usually unkind! I had one teacher who criticized her class very very unkindly. I have a job and the teachers her make it sound like they want you to quit your job to only focus on their class. There is no chance to advance at Winthrop, there is no opportunity. I already told a friend whom was thinking about going to Winthrop to save the troubles and go somewhere else. Winthrop is by far the worst university. Save your money, save your time. The teachers here do not care about your success and administration is a nightmare.
