I don't know what Baker is like now, but I found it to be excellent when I attended. I took me second undergrad degree there and actually found the instruction and course work to be more challenging and usefull than my first degree taken at a state university. And, when I entered the work force I found that my knowledge exeeded that of coworkers who graduated from high rated schools.

The credits do not transfer and they close programs leaving you out of luck and with wasted time and money. I would not recommend this college to anyone who is going for a degree that is longer than a two year program and a program that is not too expensive ( most of the programs are more money than the degree from Baker is worth.

I understand that this is an online degree, but if I wanted to just read a book and then create programs based on the content in less than a week, I would do that entirely on my own. I anticipated some form of education. There is none at all. What am I paying for? Only two of my instructors, I believe, genuinely conducted classes. The remaining ones merely publish assignments and, if I'm lucky, a few slides on the subject. In most cases, the first week's assignments are absurd. You are given no time... Read More

I was a 2021 transfer to Baker College DBA - ABD (All but dissertation), from a University in Southern Florida. My prior school asked me to invest tens of thousands of dollars in the school each year but they did not invest in me, my research or my career goals. This was not the case at Baker College. Dr. Vinton initially interviewed me and I felt he was genuinely invested in my success. The school helped curate a path for me to achieve my goal of obtaining a doctorate.

I was an ABD transfer from another institution here in California due to a dissertation Chair no longer being able to fulfill his duties. That being said, I was looking for a program that allowed be to transfer my credits and start at the dissertation. Baker College seemed to be the best option based on my needs and my search of other institutions. When interviewing for the DBA-ABD option at Baker College, I was able to speak with Dr. Vinton (now retired) who was incredibly professional, and genuinely... Read More

The online platform is not for everyone. Students need to be self-motivated to be able to thrive. No one is going to hold your hand to tell you that you missed class or missed a deadline for an assignment. So, you really have to be motivated to do these things by yourself. However, if you need help, they offer it. Tutoring Services is offered free for every student, and Career Counseling is hard to beat. I feel like I got out of the program everything I sought, and I am really happy with the outcome.... Read More

DO NOT GO. The classes where way too easy and I didn't even read the books or attend them. It was a waste of time. They switch from trimesters to semester and it loaded so many additional classes and it took me 8 years to graduate. Then they have the audacity to not even get back to me when I'm looking for career services. It's been one year after graduating and I still cannot find an entry level job. They where joke classes and the books where highly unprofessional. The teachers are previous Baker... Read More

2011 Baker College Flint had great instructors at the time. One inperticular was from UCLA and if you missed class she would call you to check you. If you ask me that is dedication( shout out to Dr.Osman) however it seemed the classes were over priced and you constantly had to concern yourself with how your education was being funded.

Baker in general is a hot mess. They use a canned curriculum, much of which is out of date. The instructors are by in large either disconnected from the courses they are moderating. I chose the word moderate because they don't teach they just moderate. Students are left by in large to teach themselves. Expect minimal if any feedback on assignments. The institution loves APA, but I found that a functional level of knowledge of APA is often missing with instructors. They tend to discriminate against... Read More

The curriculum at Baker barely holds up to the standards of other schools. Very few of my classes were available to take on ground--many were pushed to online-only because there were no instructors available to teach these classes in person. The conversion to semesters (from quarters) completely screwed me out of MANY credits that I needed to graduate. Had to take extra classes after the fact--even after completing ALL the classes on the course list. The academic advisors and staff are clueless and... Read More

This school seemed like it was going to be amazing. Turns out this is not a good school and I do not recommend. This is coming from someone who worked hard and got all A's for all the courses I have taken. This place is money hungry. Oh and as soon as you figure that out, you can't transfer your credits to any other school. This place offers a very limited number of professors and each semester it just keeps getting worse. So if you get a professor you can't understand, that's too bad because there... Read More

This school is a scam. Ridiculously high expectations, but will not tell you the expectations. Credits do not transfer. Teachers do not answer emails. Academic advising will constantly lie to you, make you take classes you don’t need. Avoid at all costs! I am thousands in debt and filled with rage and regret.

An adviser reached out to me to help me sign up for classes and settle my financial aid. They were extremely friendly and persistent in helping me, and I thought this would be a good sign that Baker cared about its students. Unfortunately, they just want you to sign up because the education they provide is the bare minimum they can give to charge you tuition. Teachers don't understand basic questions, and fumble with grammar and spelling. All my assignments were busy work. Teachers utilized the textbook... Read More

PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL! Like the previous review I was following the professional track when they changed it right before me applying to my program. So then I ended up having to take 2 more classes last minute and was left with 4 classes I did not need. The business dealings of this school is horrible. Usually if something like that changes it applies to incoming students. They dont make the people already on the track now follow the new one. Then they have decided to end most programs...

Baker Online is a decent learning platform. Yes, it takes a lot of time and dedication, but that is what school consists of. I would recommend if you work full-time and have a family to take care of, ease your way into the program. The expectation and workload is intense, but worth it. They offer accelerated courses and the instructors are knowledgeable. If you think you are going to skate through a class, this college is not for you. I would recommend Baker to those who are looking to put in the... Read More

Do yourself a favor and do not attend baker. Instructors are ultra cliquey and if you are not a favored pet you will be treated horribly by the nursing instructors. Credits do not transfer easily and you will transfer when you realize how expensive they are and how you are seen as a dollar sign, not a person wanting to better their life. The best news I've read all day is that Clinton township and flint locations are closing - they are spinning it as "consolidation" but it is because of declining... Read More

Education is very important to me, but the one I got from here was not worth the time, effort, or money that I have spent on it. Please do not go to this school. It will be the worst decision you ever make. They recently had a change in management or something because everything seems to be about money to them. No academic, financial, or career advisiors to help you out. I am now done with my degree with no job offers or any internships lined up. I am very frustrated.

I'm glad I chose Baker Online to earn my degree. I was still able to work full time and gain work experience while going to school. I really liked how their program allowed me to take more classes in the same amount of time as other colleges. With classes only six weeks long I didnt get bored on one subject. I also developed more skills than most graduates with computer science degrees which helped me start out in more advanced positions. Also, most of their instructors were very good.

Baker College forced me into classes I didn't need, double reported balance on my credit, lost my education credit on my taxes, classes will not transfer (already taken in community college so cost me additional money that I should not have needed to take for my degree) Professors are uncommunicative in proper assignments, failed a class based on last paper because professor didn't relate what the paper should have been written on.

Baker College seems to get a bad reputation. I can honestly say the courses were demanding--I wrote quite lengthy research papers. I have been able to apply accounting principles learned towards managing the books for small organizations. Though I am in the field of research now, and pursuing a Master's degree in Data Science at another University I would definitely recommend this school to those who work to pay for their own education and need an alternate way of achieving this milestone.
