I can honestly say, I have not had one issue with this University, Professors or classes. I am taking classes for Accounting and have been doing so for 1 year, graduating by end of this year. But, going to pursue my Bachelors. The flexibility is amazing!!... Read More Please don't decide base off of the bad reviews. Everyone is different. My advisor is ALWAYS available and willing to assist with anything. Call them, ask your questions, visit the campus, ask other students... and most importantly, DO YOUR RESEARCH based off of the degree you want.
If you're planning to attend and learn anything I'd strongly recommend looking into other options. Most of the instructors I had during my time with this school won't put in any effort above the very minimum needed to get through the course. Some will... Read More try their best to work with you and help you when you are having problems, most won't and will simply tell you to get the work in ASAP. Some instructors are knowledgable regarding the material they are teaching, but I've also had a number of instances where I've found that the information being given to the students is just plain wrong. In addition to this I've also had the instructor insisting I was wrong on a topic they weren't familiar with on an assignment and outright refused to change my grade until I provided a reference, something which the instructor could have discovered on their own with a simple google search. When taking courses at this school you will be teaching yourself just about everything from basic coding to SQL and database management. Even then, the projects tend to basic, so if you're willing to teach yourself there are plenty of resources available online that are low cost or even free. The courses at Rasmussen seem to be geared more towards students who already know the material and are willing to pay to show they've already obtained the knowledge in order to receive a degree. So, I reiterate, if you're here to learn look anywhere else.
Rasmussen College, Land O Lakes office is calling itself a school, yet it cannot educate anyone. I took the online courses because they did not have professors to teach 3rd and 4th year Accounting classes on campus. I had zero help and support from the... Read More online professors. I taught myself everything. The text books they use are basically summaries of real text books used in other colleges. I had to go through old publishing's of texts of the same subjects, in order to get a better understanding of the material. I spent so much time trying to understand the subject matter that I would run out of time on the assignments. If I had someone teaching me, I most likely would have completed those assignments. Of course I failed and repeated quite a few classes. I was put on probation twice, and told I wasn't trying hard enough. I continued attending the school because I just wanted to complete it and and walk away with a degree. Finally< I was told that I wouldn't get approved for another student loan. I had to pay for my classes cash for a semester in order to prove I was serious about school. I explained to them I couldn't afford to. So that was the end of my schooling. Fast forward to today. I just finished paying the student loans off. My wages of $13.00 an hour, were being garnished all that time, as well as my tax returns money confiscated. I am a single parent, trying to raise 3 kids, so you can imagine the hole we were in. No matter who I tried to speak to about this to get some kind of leniency of any kind, I got a slammed door in my face. So anyone considering going to this school, please don't. Don't let these thieves get a dime of your hard earned cash. They do not deserve it. This is just a business to them, not a school, and they shouldn't be allowed to call themselves a school. P.S. I wonder who the heck paid off the accreditation people for Rasmussen's credentials?
