This school was the worst thing that ever happened to me. I would not recommend this school to anyone. They claim that you will save money by not charging you for books, but they want at least $36,000, for a two year associates degree. It took me years to get out of debt with this school. They are terrible. I had the worst time getting the dean to turn in the necessary paper work so I can get my licenses. (its been 9 months and the papers are still not turned in I have graduated and paid all debts) The credits DO NOT transfer, of course they will not deny that one. Do not go to this school if you ever plan on furthering your education elsewhere, without having to start over. This school does not care about its students at all, my advice to anyone reading this, go to an accredited school with decent tuition prices, and a good reputation.

every other review i've read has just been rude and degrading to this school. stevens-henager is a way out of that 9-5 job. they are flexible and willing to do what it takes for you to pass. i read in one review that the computers were refurbished. NOT TRUE!!! i got a brand new 2009 macbook pro. with adobe CS4. all of that including books would've costed me over $2,000 out of my pocket. instead the school finds a way for people who may be less fortunate (or are just having a hard time) to complete school and have a higher education than a GED or high school diploma. it is a good thing to know that the credits are hard to transfer. when considering this school remember that they will only teach you what you need to know in order to get a job somewhere in your field. it is up to you if you want to expand your knowledge. i have not had one class that has given me busy work. every assignment that i've completed has taught me something new. this school gives you classes that teach you what businesses are looking for in a graphic artist or bussinessman...whatever you are going to school for. the only way to see this school as a lesser school is if you as a student are not putting in 100% on your degree. if you want a job become the best on your own. if a company see's that you are going to stevens-henager he might be a little questionable at first but, if you have great work and you really know your stuff they will hire you. stevens-henager also has one of the highest graduation percentages i've seen. school is easy if you take the easy route. if you push yourself and get into the subject you're studying it becomes a challenge. everyone wants a challenge. so challenge yourself.

Please be aware that this particular college caters to a very specific consumer; primarily, it caters to students who otherwise cannot, due to cognitive ability or socio/cultural issues, attend a traditional community college or traditional university.

It caters to the substandard student, the uncommitted student, and the uninformed student. It is for those who barely squeaked through high school, who only earned a GED, for those who want a "quick fix" for their financial woes.

It is for those students who feel everything should be given to them and want to be catered to as if they were at a Taco Bell drive through. It is for those students who balk at the idea of a rigorous academic experience. It is for the lazy and the entitled "millenials".

If you are any of these, you will receive adequate, career-oriented training. This is not an academic college, and as such, cannot be compared to one. It trains you for a task, for a job.

Instructors are experts in their fields. Most hold a Master's in their field, and many have their Ph.D.'s. As a result, many are disgusted by the lack of effort of the students, and many are worn down by demanding excellence from their students and instead only receiving mediocrity.Choose wisely, young grasshopper. What are your goals? To get a job? If so, this school will work for you. If you want an intellectual experience, choose a traditional university.
