I went to WBU for 1 semester.BrightSociology
I went to WBU for 1 semester. I received Financial Aid and did not understand how much would apply to tuition. I made repeated calls and emails to the Financial aid department to no avail. Because I was told to take 4 credits instead of 6 by the Admin. Assistant, I now owe WBU $700.00 instead of $300.00. After talking with the Dean, I now have to pay $700.00 even though I did not get a response from someone in the Financial office to let me know to take 6 credits, which would only have cost me 300.00. Now I am being told by the Financial office that I can't withdraw from school. WBU does not act like a Christian school and I will not recommend this school to anyone.

Question
I attend the WBU campus in San Antonio.BrightSociology
I attend the WBU campus in San Antonio. Mostly military people are enrolled at this campus. Financial Aid Dept. finds it a burden to deal with civillian students who apply for the traditional student loans and grants. The student aid is slow, and when you check on your aid status the entire staff finds it annoying to deal with. You may be a junior, but receiving the same funds as if you were classified as a sophmore. I wouldn't go to this college if you're a student who depends on financial aid, because you will not get it until the 4th or 6th week into the semester. Go somewhere else.

Question
Tuition is outrageous andQuite BrightMusic Education
Tuition is outrageous and there is nothing to show for it. Facilities are old and outdated. Fitness center weight room is full of cardio machines and one rack of free weights and two benches. No squat racks, or bench racks. I am concerned about where my overpriced tuition is really going.
