Degree: Medical Office Administration

I studied at this school for almost a year. I was so excited about the potential of getting a better job after graduation that paid well. I graduated six months ago and havent gotten a single interview in the medical administrative field. I am heartbroken at how much money I have wasted. I have applied to over 300 administrative jobs and no one wants me in this new field. I believe it has everything to do with this school being a scam. Right now Im a respected teacher and can get a job very easily... Read More

I wish I knew where to start with this school and their processes. The spam contact saying that I owned money was annoying. I finally had to send them notice to stop trying to collect a debt under the Fair Credit Reporting Act as I literally owed them nothing. I am self-pay from family savings and am not using financial aid nor have I filed a FAFSA so the emails that they have received my FAFSA results were also alarming. Inability to complete online courses in computer fundamentals because their... Read More

Degree: Nursing

The problem with Rasmussen is that they claim to be flexible, however they are anything but. I attended the nursing program as a post bac attempting to get an associates degree in nursing. However, as the classes progressed you would be required to be on campus usually 4 days a week for 1-2 hours at a time with clinicals additional time. This would have been fine, but I had my childcare assistance taken away and I couldnt afford to send my son to daycare all day when I am only required in class for... Read More

Degree: Human Resources

The reason for the low review overall is the blatant disregard that I have seen here for the process of education and for excellence. When informing faculty that there are errors, mispellings, and that it appears that transcripts of lectures were not proofread, the attitude was hostile. On another test, there was no correct answer and no action was taken. Instructions are poorly written in many circumstances. I had a miscarriage over Thanksgiving and the school does not offer Incompletes other than... Read More

I do not recommend the nursing program unless you want to teach yourself the ins and outs of being a nurse, most classes are online so theres no one there to help you , it is over priced, yes its an excelarated program but the amount of assignments are extreme. They will also hold on to the financial aide that is not needed and should be sent back to lender until you threaten to take action

Degree: Accounting

When I was attending Rasmussen I didnt receive anything beneficial from it. I was talking to CPAs who said their companies wouldnt employ anybody who attended Rasmussen. I then decided to transfer universities to pursue my career. None of my credits transferred...$10,000 wasted. Rasmussen is a trade school who works with companies to guarantee your job after graduation. If you move to a state that doesnt have a Rasmussen then youre in deep water. Employers look at Rasmussen graduates much less than... Read More

Degree: Business Administration

This school is a complete scam and only cares about getting your money. The education is secondary to them. They charged $3k for a six credit semester. A state school would often charge about that for twice the credits. They require you buy their books through them and can't take the class unless you do so they can overcharge your books beyond what publishers normally do and even if you find it cheaper somewhere else it doesn't matter because you have to buy them through the school to get into the...

Transferred out of this school as soon as I could to a more respectable college that actually teaches the classes. I had to retake classes that I had originally passed with ease at Rasmussen because I did not learn anything from the classes at this school. When speaking with my new adviser at the college that I transferred, I was asked the extent of my computer knowledge. At that point, he determined that I would need to retake the introduction to computer programming again due to the serious lack... Read More

This school claims to be flexible and affordable. Most students were forced to quit their jobs to keep up with the insanity and several lost their jobs along the way due to the school's inability to provide a clear schedule without making changes. My schedule the last quarter changed 6 times in the first 2 weeks. It's unbelievably expensive and everything is so much more complicated than it needs to be. There's little to no communication and you're treated like a child. If you ask questions, the... Read More

Degree: Accounting

This school is absolutely horrible. I am currently pursuing my Associate's in Accounting at Rasmussen College and have been enrolled since May of 2018. These advisors and instructors do not know how to communicate. Each time I have questions, I will message my instructor in Blackboard and it takes them well over 2 days to respond as the same for the advisor. I understand they have 24-48 hours but there are times they don't reply whatsoever to my calls or messages. I am pulling a 3.94 in this program... Read More

I'm a recent graduate of Rasmussen Bloomington, MN campus and excited to share that I passed my boards on the first try with the minimum amount of questions. As with many others in my class there were many frustrations that I can sit here and complain about, I think for me the most frustrating part was releasing the schedules in a unreasonable amount of time to schedule days off from work. This changed when they were going up for accreditation. The good and the annoying part was ati's, the good part... Read More

Degree: Forensic Accounting

Please, please, save your money. Go to a community college or even state college. The quality of the education is far better. Rasmussen accepts anyone who can qualify for a loan. Many of my classmates were barely able to communicate in English. I have yet to receive a job opportunity where I will make anything close to how much I have made working in bars and painting houses. Choosing Rasmussen is the biggest regret of my life.

Horrible school. I was lied to about home much tuition costs and dropped out because of the price but I had dropped out too late and was told some money would be taken from my loans and the rest would be returned and I was fine with that but they never took money out and my money hasnt been returned yet but Rasmussen college also wants 600 dollars from me because they didnt take it from the loan.

They say that it is flexible and it works with any schedule, but that is far from the truth. Also, many of the professors are not helpful. They have other jobs and will not hesitate to put your education last. With all of my online classes I have been responsible for teaching myself everything and all of my professors are in other states so you can not set up a time to meet with them if you need help in the class. Many of the classes dont have any supplemental learning, you just read the textbook... Read More

Degree: Early Childhood Education

This is a terrible college if you are trying to improve your learning by becoming a daycare teacher. It is a waste of time and MONEY! Especially money! They do not care about you at all and honestly, you will NOT make that much more especially in Minnesota. If you do not renew your CDA on time, which they do NOT tell you how to do it, you are on your own! So if you do not renew it, you have to start ALL OVER! Which is a waste of time AND money! What did you pay for? Nothing but some math problems... Read More

Many of the complaints I see about this school, (grading scale, third-party background checks, mandatory classes) are all part of being in nursing school. I went to PHSC for my LPN and it was the same thing. They do not work around your schedule and they expect you to get with the program or get out. That is how nursing school is and If you expect to be coddled don't waste your time and money. Nursing is a serious program because the patients' lives are in our hands. DO YOUR RESEARCH!!!

To be honest this school experience was terrible.

I chose the school for the accelerated option and first semester was complete bullshit.
