I am very disappointed in UMHB.BrightNursing
I am very disappointed in UMHB. I was very involved in high school and an A-B student. I am not a cliquish type of person and I love being around people. I have never felt to lonely in my life until attending UMHB. If you are not an athlete or crazy involved then you are nothing at this school. I have had the hardest time finding my place and making friends here. They always say the students are in their best interest, but the only students people care about are athletes or crazy involved ones. Above everything else I am most disappointed in the Anatomy and Physiology class I had to suffer through. The lack of communication between my professor and the lab coordinator is absolutely ridiculous. The class is so unorganized. The only material we have to study for Exams is a chapter outline of a book they stopped using THREE YEARS AGO! Im not kidding. To study for a test with over 700 powerpoint slides, between 4-7 chapters long we are given a piece of paper that doesn't even go with our book. The class is already so hard, we don't need anything else to aid in that. Yet we are stuck trying to use a paper from 3 years ago and compare it with powerpoints and book when it doesn't even match up. It is the most frustrating thing I've ever had to deal with. And the only response from my teacher is "Im not in charge of that, take it up with administration" Im not paying $2000 for a class that I have to talk to administration about all the issues. I have never wanted to leave a place so badly. I cant wait until the semester is over so I can go home to my family and friends. Very very disappointed in this school.

I would like to give you a backgroundQuite Bright
I would like to give you a background to start so that you can understand my frustration. This is my final year at UMHB. I am under the psychology department. I view the psychology professors as very lazy. They are not willing to help you even after you have emailed them for weeks and popped into their office. You're probably thinking, ?Go to the department chair.? Well the department chair of psychology is an arrogant narcissistic man to state it lightly.

I am also a military veteran receiving the Post 911 GIbill and the bursar and VA are always making mistakes when it comes to me getting paid. The VA certifying official at the school is clueless and makes many mistakes.

The employees in the Bursars office are very rude and act like you're an inconvenience to them. When the last time I checked this is a private institution and if it weren't for us students attending they would not even have jobs.

The technology department employees are not very experienced. It took me going to them three times with the same email issue until it finally was fixed.

Fees are not refundable so if you sign up for a class with a fee and then drop they will not give you your money back. They charge many different fees so beware of budgeting for those extra fees.

For the price, I would have expected aQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
For the price, I would have expected a stellar education in my degree field from UMHB. However, after entering the workforce, I realized that UMHB provided me with an extremely anemic education. The price at this university is simply outrageous compared to the education that one receives. Exceptions to this appear to be the nursing, education, and psychology departments. All others are overpriced and leave students ill-prepared.
