Complaint / review text:
The first issue I had with strayer university (in small letters on purpose) was they charged me for a class I never attended. Although the teacher of that course said she had never met or knew me and I have proof of being in a classified government facility at the time, they still thought I should pay for the class. The next time I was signing up to take a class which would go towards my degree at two schools. The admissions person led me to believe I could take courses at two separate universities at the same time and the VA would pay for it. She did not inform me that both classes had to be transferable back to the parent school. If that were the case and had I known this little bit of information, I would not have taken the second class.
Strayer has people working for them who have no knowledge of how things work and the student is normally the one who bears the brunt of the bad information passed out whether it is monetary or psychological pain. There is no recourse for any of this. I am presently stuck having to pay for a class I would have gladly taken at another time if I had the correct information from the beginning. Now they say I am responsible for paying for this class and I cannot get the one class I needed transferred to my other university to obtain my degree before I pay this bill. Even inquiring about my transcripts I was given 3 different stories and it turns out they say I owe for a class I should have never been put in to begin with.
Why did three different people give me three answers as to why my transcript was not sent. Strayer u is an amazingly bad university and they don't seem to care how bad they look. This last incident is my fault for giving them another try. My advice, take your 9/11 GI Bill benefits and use them elsewhere. The degree will be worth more from a celebrated or renowned college or university. Strayer does not turn heads like UMW or Liberty U. Another student is just a number for them. Retired USMC
