Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: Strayer University has helped me to accomplish my goals of continuing my education during a time when I was homeless and I had lost everything I had worked for. Strayer University has really helped me to develop myself into the professional that I have always wanted to be I am forever grateful for Strayer giving me the opportunity to show myself approved and for helping me to overcome being homeless. Cons: Some of the classes were not always held on campus, which forced students who were use to taking ground had to take those classes online. Sometimes there was a bit of miscommunication between staff members and students, in other words sometimes students were not fully informed of class time and day changes which threw most students off who wanted to attend class on time at the day that was scheduled

A pro of the Strayer University graduate program was that I was able to balance school and going to work. I was able to work it around my schedule. A second pro is that that you had the option of taking classes online or going to a satellite campus. There was a campus less than 2 miles from my house that had access to. So if a class was not offered online that quarter, I can take it at the campus and vice versa. Another pro about the program is that the professors have real-life experience that can relate to classroom experience and projects. A of the program is that it could be difficult is accessibility to financial aid staff / counselor. I was assigned to one person but I could barely get in contact with her and she never returned phone calls so I ended up just always going to the lady who was at first a part of admissions when I started my graduate program but luckily for me she was switched to financial aid. I trusted her judgement and counseling. Overall I had a wonderful graduate experience at Strayer University.

The pros of being a graduate student at Strayer is the flexiblility of the schedule which works perfect for me being that I am a mother of one and I work full-time as well. One of cons of the graduate program it is a bit pricey but overall Strayer does provide various options to help with paying for school and providing extensive help all the way up to graduation.

I love Strayer University (online) because it provides the flexibility I need to balance work, school and children. They have a very good academic and overall great quality graduate program. I have found my professors to be very helpful when needed and are quick to get back with responses when I need them to. I received my associates, bachelors and am now a grad student at Strayer Online and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a reputable and flexible college to attend.

PROS: Strayer had some fine instructors--very knowledgeable, professional and eager for students to succeed. Strayer now has a modest scholarship program to defray costs. CONS: I felt the Learning Center Online Databases and Resources provided for research was limited and not adequate for a graduate level program.

Strayer University needs to be more about the students than about the money.
