Awful experience with school facultyJul 31 2017Business - Management and Administration
Awful experience with school faculty. First I had issues with the financial aid office then after I completed all my classes and applied for graduation they told me I had to take more classes to fulfill the requirements (they were the ones who created my academic plan so I think it is very wrong and very unprofessional what they did to me). I worked very hard to finish all my classes before August and then they tell me I am not done. When I called to complain, one of the advisors (her name was Becky), hung up on me. Unprofessional, rude and unethical people. They are nice when it is convenient for them to be.
Simple applicationDec 22 2015Psychology
simple application. I would NOT recommend this school to anyone. You will be charged HIGH tuition and provided with NO education. Left on your own with no course materials (even though you have paid for these), no academic assistance (professors are inaccessible and/or refuse to help), no administrative (library, advising, and tech support are totally useless). DO NOT ENROLL HERE!!!
I didn't have to do a darn thingSep 10 2014Psychology
I didn't have to do a darn thing... I applied and began two weeks later. This school clearly accepts 100% of all applicants AND it shows. I'm four years into my program and am still interacting with students that can't complete a cohesive sentence. The grammar is laughable, spell-check is nonexistent, and I have serious doubts about my 4.0 GPA. At first I was thrilled and stunned, now I simply realize that since they are for-profit, their main concern is collection of tuition and not accurate grades. The dumb-bunny that can't spell or write a single coherent idea down probably has a 4.0 as well.
