5 Student Reviews of Southern States University : Pacific Beach

  • I am so confused,well I was checking this university out and I noticed about the low tuition so I got so hopeful and happy and after reading those comments I got so confused,one guys wrote SSU doesn’t have accredit staffs,REALLY?IF SO,WHY THIS UNIVERSIY IS STILL OPEN?!
    Please just tell me that does SSU worth it?

    Overall Score: (0/5.00)
  • Fake School, waste of money and time, even worst for International students, every time you have a problem with them they will terminate your I-20 even without informing you. Never ever go here. I know it this school is cheaper than others but even it is waste of money because they will never let you graduate and keep torturing you.
    This school dosen not have national accreditation so if you want to further pursue your carrer please dont go here as most of the good universities dosen’t accept SSU degree.

  • SSU needs a great revision such as hiring sophisticated staff for the administration, developing the technology(they still have a technology which is as similar as the schools of 3rd world countries), and serving better facilities for their students. Anyhow, it is really cheap, and the quality of education is good enough informative.

  • I went to this school for an MBA when I decided to take a sabbatical from corporate life and experience how it is to live abroad. For that purpose alone the money I put it, was not too bad. But when one considers the level of quality of education, studentry population, professors and the services provided by the school, it’s not worth it. Here are the reasons:
    1. Of the 8 professors I had – only 3 are knowledgeable enough to teach from my opinion and that is having the the teaching skills, the theoretical and experiential knowledge and the energy to teach. About 5 of those professors were either not properly prepared when they come to class, missed classes more than a couple of times, didn’t provide interesting and challenging activities. The activities were mostly going through powerpoint activities. One class, managerial accounting, which is quite critical, was tought by someone who graduated from Harvard but clearly has not teaching skills. He knows finance and has worked in that field but has difficulty teaching it in a manner that is understandable to other people. He is better off working in accounting and finance than teaching.
    2. quality of studentry – some students could barely speak and write English! Most of the students I were with in classes didn’t even know how to create a decent powerpoint presentation material and how to do a decent presentation. It was an MBA class, btw. Some students were in the class and would just sit in the class, copy homeworks and cram the last minute. This is very obvious on the group exercises that we did – some didn’t even have a clue of the topics we were discussing.
    3. Services – this gave me a big headache. The frontline staff providing answers were from the studentry who hhad poor customer service skills. They won’t listen to requests, won’t follow-up on what they promised to do. While their emails would say Dear Mr or Miss, the content of their responses doesn’t address the issues raised by the students. This is a for-profit school and this is clear on all transactions – money first before anything else. The school administration doesn’t even have an idea on the background of their students. Primarily, whoever can pay is fine with min entry requirements hence the poor quality of studentry.

    I had a post purchase dissidence but I didn’t want to go through the process of transferring and I like to finish what I set out to do so I resigned myself to what I started with. And now, I wouldn’t even volunteer that I have an MBA sinc deep inside I’m not to proud of that school – I’d rather not be affiliated with that school. the money I spent there can be considered as money spent to experience living abroad rather than gaining knowledge from an institution. However – it was interesting to meet people from different countries while in this school – students who were struggling to make ends meet, foreign students supporting their education by working illegally while studying in the US – a different class of foreign students. It was humbling to see them working their way through school.

  • I have been in this school for around 3 years now, and if I knew I would have such a headache I would never get it. The staff is totally unprepared, and what they call the “heads” of the staff, meaning the manager or chief executive or whatever NEVER has an answer for you. Sometimes it takes many months or sometimes they never go back to you. Any problem you will have in there, it will never be easy to solve, or they will never solve for you. It’s amazing how many students are so unhappy and unsatisfied, but most of them are afraid to say something and not be able to finish the course. Unfortunately for me it’s too late to transfer to a decent school due I just have a few classes left, and if I transfer now, the expenses will up since it would take more time to graduate, just because some classes we are forced to take in this school are not accepted in other schools. Bottom line, waste of time, money, frustration and stress. The teachers are not motivated to teach, some of them don’t even bother and give you something to do, and other teacher are just old, tired, and don’t have the patient. And even other forget they are teaching grow-ups, over 20 or 30 years old students, since they come with some activities as for 5th graders. If student have any issue with teacher or anything else, the school will never accept that you are right and they were wrong, end of the history: student end up being punished, or paying for something that didn’t have to. This school need to be reformulated and hired a new staff and teachers ASAP!
