161 Student Reviews of Stevens-Henager College : Ogden

  • I am currently attending and am in my 4th mod. I have not experience any problems. Although I am not on campus and am taking online courses, I have received nothing but kindness and honesty. Whether it was communicating with fellow students, my teachers, or even the staff. I did not have any problems with financial aid, submitted all the proper work, classes paid for, and refund check received because I passed my classes with A’s. I’m not sure (based of the reviews) if the school was troubled before, but as a student in 2019 I have yet to experience any problems. As I continue on until my graduation date 2020 I will post another overall review. Not sure why people are saying why this is a scam? The staff is transparent (in my opinion) and easy to get into contact with.

  • I was a student here in the graphic design associates degree program. While I liked my time here, they screwed me over royally. My father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in April 2018, which made my motivation for school drop dramatically so I was not passing my courses. They contacted about my poor grades and said I needed to get a doctor note from my dad’s oncologist and fill out an action plan. I tried for days to find out who my dad’s doctor is to get a note, and in the middle of all this they dropped me from the school. Mind you, I’m a 30-something year old adult who has not lived with her parents in ten years. I literally begged and pleaded with them to give me a few more days to gather the doctor note, but they refused to work with me. They also would not let me take a break from classes during all of this because it’s an “accelerated program”. Because they refused to give me a couple extra days to get a doctor note from the oncologist, I am tens of thousands of dollars in debt. I do have skills from the program but I will never get a job because I never completed the degree. They expect me to pay them an almost $3,000 balance now.

    I attended the Logan campus from 2012-2014. $42,000+ in debt and have nothing to show. 3 years after graduating and still have not been able to work in my field of study, business management/ accounting. I was getting calls multiple times a day and numerous emails, all of which were of a more threatening style. I finally told the people who kept calling that once I could put the worthless piece of paper they gave me to use in a suitable and well paying position, I’d THINK about paying them back. But they wouldn’t see a penny from me until that happens. Still haven’t made one payment to them.

  • I attended this school starting August 2007 and graduated July 2010. Upon graduation with my “Bachelor’s degree in business administration and management” I was $70,000 in debt and nothing to show for it. The financial aide officer informed me that I owed them money a long with FASFA and they wanted immediate payments of a minimum of $700 a month and they wanted that payment to increase and have them paid back within two years. This did not include the payments to the student loans either. I was never able to get a job in my field let alone a job that pays more than 30,000 a year. They completely ruined my life and I have no idea how to fix it. The fact that this school is even still open is amazing to me! It needs to be shut down.

  • At first I loved this school, now, I should be laughing, it is the biggest joke. In this case and all the ones I’ve read below are no laughing matter. A one month course in Graphic design is absolutely rediculous. You get crammed info in a month and barely accomplish the tutorial of a class. I’ve learned more from Adobe tutorials and you tube than 90% of my courses. I got extremely sick and was down for two weeks. My associate dean and instructors said thet would work with me. Did they? Absolutely not. I have had problems submitting my assignments. It will say submitted. And supposedly They didn’t recieve them.
    Explain this one ” you turn in all your work on time, get 100% on your assessment 1 miss 1 on assessment 2 have at least 4 to 6 daily check points and have a D in the class. It makes no sense.
    The finacial dept. Are the biggest crooks. So you get financial aid, pale grants , mind you you don’t ever get grant they just take it upon themselves to put it toward tuition. Then for my remaining balance I get a statement in the mail stat ing that a loan company handling my student loan balances. So a loan company paid my loan, I won’t have to pay my loan back till I graduate yet they say I’m 400 behind on my payments. So if a loan company pays what you owe and you now owe them? How is it I owe the school. Non profit organization. I hope somebody looks into class action, or starts one.

  • I applied at Stevens-Henager after attending their free diploma program as I am a high school drop-out. This is a great program as it is basically free education and great prep for your GED. They even paid for all the costs of the tests and were very supportive to me and others I observed. The teachers and staff are friendly, helpful and professional. I say applied but I don’t really mean it because they will enroll any fool willing to sign on the dotted line.
    I attended from Jan. 2013 til Jan.2015 to get my associates degree in business with a emphasis in property management. Thats right, a full 2 years not the 18-20 months like they advertised and promised. I went straight through the summers and was constantly given courses out of order, didn’t have a dean to consult with for the first 6 months and was basically kept in the dark for the entire time I was there as to what my actual status was or what classes would be next.
    The teachers were great people and very knowledgeable about the field they were in but I think only a few were actually qualified as teachers in the traditional sense. Apparently you don’t need to be certified to work there as long as somebody there or in the organization actually is. I took a couple of courses in computers and wasn’t able to get my certification due to the fact the teacher wasn’t yet certified either.(Quickbooks,etc…) I think the only teachers who were certified are the general education professors and the deans. I will say that they were all really great people and I look up to and appreciate all of them for all of their help. The classes were all very small with 7-10 students on average, many mods I only had 3-4 and a couple of mods I was the only student.
    I should have shopped around, I agreed to their terms way too easy. They handled everything for me and in the matter of an afternoon I was in college, approved, accepted and enrolled with no real concept of what I had just done. I didn’t really realize the mistake I had made until I enrolled my sons in Weber the following summer. The whole reason I went back to school was to graduate before our two youngest children(twins) to try and set a good example for them. I thought enrolling in college would also inspire them to get an education so as not to struggle through life like I have.
    It was so easy and they sold me on small class sizes, one on one teacher interaction and on campus classes. Until I enrolled the most I had used the computer is look at it or stack things on, I had never even sent an email correctly. Running my own business, I needed training and understanding as I have witnessed many friends and colleagues fail due to their lack of knowledge of business and taxes. I basically needed to learn how to use a computer.
    They gave me a computer when I enrolled and it did the job. I’m still using it but I found out that it is basically a $500 unit and I’m sure that they got a bulk deal so they paid even less. My books were all free and they actually have a policy of letting you take whatever you would like of the old books they are no longer using, of which I have a pile. After I realized what I was paying for I made it a point to grab as many as I could, knowledge is expensive and books are full of it. The librarians and staff are very helpful and accommodating to all your needs as a student.
    My problems arose as I tried to take more classes to graduate quicker, many mods I would only have one class.The classes were crammed into a month and they still seemed a little too easy. I think that almost everyone gets an “A” and is on the dean’s list. Two and a half hours a day per class, twice a week, which is basically 20 hours of instruction to get everything out of that subject you can. If they gotta skip over sections of the book or just call it good halfway through then that seems to be par for the course. I don’t think anybody fails regardless of their scores and definitely not their effort. There were a lot of students who dropped out from one reason or another and after talking to several of them, I decided to finish because they weren’t able to get any money back and/or ended up responsible for the entire amount of their degree.
    How much is their tuition you ask? $42,000 for an associates and $75,000 for a bachelors degree, that was at the time of enrollment Jan.2013, it has gone up since then. They took my FASFA money($11,000) and then gave me a scholarship($3,000 if I kept a 3.0) which left me responsible for about $25,000. I take full responsibility for that, they explained that to me in the beginning and I knew that full well.
    What I didn’t expect is them running into a situation where they couldn’t offer me the classes they promised me, then trying to talk me out of my emphasis courses so I could graduate on time. I had many mods that I only had one class and wanted another but could not take more because they told me it was the way my student loan would allot the funds. I got frustrated after not getting any classes and others out of order, 200 and 300 series classes before I took 100, not being able to certify me for classes I already took and being shuffled around when I asked for answers. I wanted to take my last summer of ’14 off to work and since they currently didn’t have the classes I needed to finish my degree. That is when I found out the only way to do that is to un-enroll, give back the computer and pay the difference of the new cost of enrollment, $2,000 more.
    A couple of months before graduation I checked with the financial office to make sure there was no problems so I could make plans to attend Weber($5,700 a year approx.) in the winter. They said all was well and I continued until Jan. 2015 when I graduated, 4 months late. When I went to Weber they informed me that my FASFA money for the semester had already been used at Stevens-Henager. I had started my last mod in Dec. ’14 and as far as I knew they were paid up. I couldn’t register because I didn’t have the money from FASFA and didn’t want any more debt.
    Now the kicker, after maintaining a 3.8 GPA and putting up with a lot of BS from them, I was finally done. At my exit interview they informed me that I owed them $8,800 for some fees they couldn’t explain. They wanted me to “Just run down to your bank and get a loan.” Guess what, I still don’t have a job and I’m already in debt $33,000 with interest. I argued and they said they would call me. No calls and I came back two more times and the result was the same. They would send me home assuring me that it would all be taken care of. I could not walk with my class and still don’t have my degree in hand because they seem to think I still owe them $9,000.
    To top it all off, I have to start over at Weber because they, or any other college, doesn’t accept their credits. I would definitely warn others to shop around and get your education elsewhere. Non-Profit my @##, what kind of college wants more money after you have already paid them at enrollment. Buyer Beware!!!!

  • Very rude enrollment advisors was contacted over and over and harassed when I finally answered the phone I spoke with advisor Holly Rains which probably a fake name. I already had a Bachelors Degree in Business Management and I was looking to get a Masters degree in Healthcare management. There were mistakes from the start we worked on getting me enrolled starting the first week in October. I was promised a lap top and tablet which I later found it was for Bachelors degree only. I did my financial aide gave all types of statements for the financial aid office. Holly Rains which was my advisor not only misinformed me of GPA policy but got my enrollment wrong three times the first she signed me up for a Bachelors degree in Healthcare services which is not what I asked for. I told her I wanted a Masters in Health care services and she states all they had available was an MBA with a concentration in Entrepreneurship which I agreed to at first but then I went online and saw that the Masters for Health care management was available I called her back and we changed it. Coming to the week before class I was then informed by Holly Rains that I needed to write a essay for get into the Master’s program at this point in time after all the the misinformation I was done. After all of that she then told me that my grade point average was not high enough for the Master’s program and that I would have to get a Bachelor’s degree I told her no this is not what I was told from the beginning. If I had been told that I would not had wasted this much time. She then told me she would have her manager call me his name is Wendell Guillary never received a call. I called her back left messages she would never respond. October 29th I contacted admissions to speak to a Supt spoke Rocky he directed me back to Mr Guillary even gave me a phone number in which a Monica answers as her voice mail phone is 602-589-9876. I called back several times and was stone walled. Spoke to a admissions advisor named April she transferred me to a Supt named Nicole and when I started telling her what had transpired she hung up on me. I have never in my life been treated so badly by any company, school, etc in my life. These people do not have any integrity at all!

  • I am still trying to find a job in the field I spent four years at this school trying to achieve. I graduated and have still been constantly hounded about going for a master’s degree even though there was never a master’s program in graphic design. FYI having a degree in graphic design is absolutely worthless if you do not have 5 years experience in the field or at least extensive knowledge of web design. I only agreed to complete the bachelor’s degree because there was supposed to be a huge discount. I also didn’t know that there would be multiple loans taken out and that I would be paying for this degree for the rest of my life. Oh and career services that was the biggest slap in the face for me. I only went to college after suffering a career ending injury, so with the promise of services to help find employment after graduation was ideal since I did not have experience in the field I was going into. Come to find out afterward that the career services person I was assigned to was of no help to me what so ever. He just kept telling me I had to apply my previous experience to what I learned in school. Well news flash being a mechanic has almost nothing in common with graphic design. So all I am now is a former mechanic with a useless degree in graphic design. I started a business but I could have done what I am doing now with out being $57,000 in debt and incurring interest at a rate where I will be dead before I can pay off the loan.

  • I’m still trying to pay off this joke of a college. They promised me a free laptop to use for schooling, said I could enroll on-line, they said I would graduate in 6 months, I did not graduate in 6 months due to the fact I lived 3 hrs away from Ogden campus and they wanted me to drive the whole way back and forth. They said all these nice cool things to me to get me to sign my name on the student loans papers and then left me high and dry… the professors would do test over chapters they did not assign for homework and fail you so you could not pass and move on..it became a real joke and I eventually could not take the driving back and forth and the time for idiots running a circus instead of a campus. The Dean was non-existent and teachers just didn’t care… Be smart do not enroll… I’m paying 45,000 dollars for 3 months of schooling from this cracker jack run place.

I hated the fact I didnt have a choice to quit after I realized they just want to take all my money! At the end of my program u wasnt given my diploma nor was I invited to attend or even told about MY graduation! After a few months of being done I realized things werent adding up as far as my grades, attendence, and all the extra money they claimed I owed them outside of my huge ass student loans. I made an apt with the so called “president” Vicky Dewsnup to discuss the issues I found after careful review by my self threw my entire attendence record, grades, and charges. She was shocked and uneasy about the fact I brought in evidence supporting my findings. She reluctantly awarded me some of the refund I deserved. She changed my grades, raised my GPA and updated my attendence record due to my own findings and proof. Had I not brought many issues to her attention nothing would have been done. She asked how I had access to my attendence grades etc as I had graduated and should no longer have access to the student portal. This “problem” was also fixed immediately so I would no longer have access to MY records. Why hide the truth if there’s nothing wrong!? I have had many negative encounters with the employees of the ogden campus. One very recent encounter was just a month ago. I was told my private loan with them was being forgiven due to a death discharge because my mom had passed away and was my co signer. As far as my federal loans are concerned they need more proof. So I made an apt with the buisness office. In particular Kyle. We began looking over the papers in my file, because I was told by Kyle I could come in to review my information and get copies of everything I wanted. I asked for copies of everything containing my moms signature. He made copies of the first few papers. He then became very angry with me and shut my file claiming I didnt have rights to any of MY information and that he was told by other facility members to not talk to me. After being called a witch and being told my loan was discharged because they were “sick of dealing with me” I left. I called the department of education and department of higher education to find out the laws and rules as far as MY information. There is no law or regulations stating I dont have access to my information. I was told once again to talk to the “president” Vicky Dewsnup to resolve the issue. She has done nothing to solve the issue other then a slap on the wrist to kyle and not for filling her promise to me to send me all paperwork containing my moms information. NEVER go to this pathetic school! It will be the worst mistake you’ll make in your life and it will be an on going very frustrating battle with them to the end. Im counting on all there pending lawsuits to fix my problems with them. Any credits you earn here will never be transferable or accepted by any real college. Keep my information in mind before you sign on the dreaded dotted line!

  • I am a current student at SHC in Boise. I am in the Medical Specialties for an Associate’s Degree. Honestly, I can see where some of the complaints are coming from (as far as SHC overall or the Boise campus but I feel I see more pros than cons. I started in March of 2014, about to end my 6th Mod. I feel I have gained so much knowledge into the medical world that I didn’t know before. This is from a person who has worked for CMS twice and spent most her life in Doctor Offices and Hospitals until about the age of 12. Is this college cheap? Not really. However, I was my sibling in laws struggling to find money for their books and freaking out when their computer breaks (one of them doesn’t own a computer). I have never had to worry about this. I walked in, had a laptop handed to me and we have tech on campus. Every Mod, I walked in and had my book(s) handed to me, no muss no fuss. Sadly, due to family obligations this is going to be my final mod with this school (moving across country) but I would have gladly finished this degree and feel jobs would have been available. When local companies saw I was with SHC, I would get an interview at their office. So many local medical companies work with SHC for externship and jobs that I would never have worried about finding a job after graduation. I don’t know about the other courses offered, I only know my own personal experience. I wish others would have had the same encounter I did with this school.

    Pros:
    Small Classes
    Instructors that work in the field they teach
    Facilities have hands on labs to use(such as an x-ray machine)
    Beautiful school/Location
    Laptop and Books(supplies) included in tuition costs

    Cons:
    Expensive

  • Me again….Forgot to mention that we were told we HAD to take lunches, and they restricted overtime….but we were forced to “package” more and more and more students. We were not given the option to take sick time – and noone was able to take their hard earned vacation time because if we did and didn’t make our “quotas” we would be fired?!?! This is no exxageration people….it is the truth. I moved to another college and am back to being a Financial Planner (Financial Advisor) – and am able to give prospective students the FULL picture of what their financial responsibility will be upon graduation…as it should be. In a year of my being at this new college, I’ve not ONCE been threated to be fired for not making a unreachable quota!

  • I worked as a Financial Planner at Stephens Henager’s online college – Independence University. Management pressured us every waking minute to “package” students. The number of “packages” continues to be increased, therefore forcing Financial Planners to rush student’s through the financial aid process – barely skimming over what their fees are. At the other colleges I worked for, we actually were “FINANCIAL PLANNERS” – and we had time to assist the students so they knew exactly what they were getting into. Not SHC / IU. They just want the $$, and they do not give a rats ARSE about the students. The school buys”lists” of names of students to contact, and I would guess that at least 85% of the students we contact are below poverty level. Many prospective students are on fixed incomes (SSI, etc). We promise them a “free laptop” – but many of them don’t even have the money for internet access!?! (But we don’t tell them they need it)….So immediately upon starting school they are being harassed to get somewhere (McDonalds, Starbucks, Library, etc.) to log into class, or they will be dropped and will owe a portion of their loans – and will have to return the laptop “on their dime”. I had one student who lived in Detroit. He had no car, and would have to walk (in blizzards) to get to the nearest bus stop just to get to the library to “log into class”. So, as you might be able to see by now…this school lures students in by stating that going to IU will help better their circumstances….but the cost of tuition is so high that even if these people qualify for Pell Grants and Stafford loans, they are STILL required to make an “in-house” payment. We are instructed to tell the students we can take as little as $15 per month….but we do not go into depth on the how much their payment will go up once they have graduated…..then their Stafford Loans will kick in 6 months later. Some people will end up paying close to $300 per month (or more) and will still only make minimum wage even WITH an Associates degree from this (or any) school. It became more and more difficult to feel good about doing my job. My heart would break for these people. Management did little or nothing to help these students. “get them packaged – even if they “false start”. The Director of the school hid in his office and rarely spoke with any of his very hard working employees….he allowed his lower managemtn to gossip and create a very poor working environment based on scaring the employees with losing their jobs. We lived in CONSTANT fear! This was the WORST working environment I’ve EVER experienced! EVERYONE PLEASE STAY AWAY!

  • Holding Diploma
    I graduated in 2011. It took me 2 years to get a straight answer about my graduation diploma. I talked to many employees and nobody gave me a straight answer. I worked really hard to pay off my school balance and my school loans. Paying them all on time. After two years of trying, I got an email from my school explaining why they still haven’t sent my diploma, it’s been about two years later. They said even though i’ve been making daily payments for my school, and balance. They still can’t release my diploma til it is all paid off. Like i’m supposed to pull 10k out of a hat.

    This is completely ridiculous. I am paying off my loans, and paying the school. Yet I still can’t get what i’m entitled to? I’m sorry but that is ridiculous, and i’m filing a complaint. It took me two years to get straight answers, basically going from person to person being told one or the other. No it doesn’t work that way, not with any college or any graduate of a college. You go to school, you pay for it, and you get what you’re entitled to. Just not from Stevens-Henager.

    The school has a terrible reputation too. Please look up Lee Berger the former dean of the Ogden, UT college and what kind of ethics this school has. Terrible, Terrible. Listen to the complaints and do your research and DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL.

  • Stevens Henager College used deceptive trade practices in duping me in to enrollment with college. Additionally, financial aid office committed fraud in student aid. I was contacted by telephone from Stevens Henager College in late October of 2012 to consider enrollment in their online college. During my enrollment process I was repeatedly lied to by my admission adviser, his superior who claimed to be the manager of student financial aid and other school officials. Said prevarications included promises of being provided full eBooks and text books that I could download and text books that would be sent to me. Additionally, I was promised that I would have access to the colleges learning portal for life so that I would be able to come back and use the resources to help me ‘brush up’ later on the things I had learned while attending their college. Finally, I was promised a $3,500 rebate on my tuition upon completion of my third month of attendance with their college. On January 15th, 2013, in response to a financial award letter I received on 1/14/2013 from the colleges financial aid department, I sent a letter to the colleges financial aid department requesting that they cease all activity in obtaining funding from federal student loans and a Pell grant. On February 4th, 2013, the college withdrew funds from the US Treasury in the amount of approximately $7,500 without my authorization and in direct conflict with my demand that the college cease all activities in obtaining federal student loans and a Pell grant in my behalf. This is a violation of the Title 34 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 634, and constitutes theft. On 3/19/2013, I sent an email to the college’s financial aid office asking them to return the aforementioned funds to the treasury department. The college replied very rudely informing me that they denied ever receiving my aforementioned letter to them, a fax and or email concerning the same. The college demanded that I provide proof that I sent the aforementioned letter. In response, I replied back to the college stating that I would initiate a lost letter claim the USPS and encouraged them to do the same. Additionally, I conveyed to the college that regardless of whether or not they had received said letter, that their reply proved that they received a copy of the letter from the email they replied to. Therefore, under the aforementioned code of federal regulations, I further requested that they consider the letter they now admitted to have as a request to return my student loans and Pell grant back to the US treasury and or whatever source they received it from. As of this date, my wife and I have sent several more emails to the college concerning the same, but they have never replied to us again. Both my wife and I called the college on numerous occasions and have repeatedly been told that there was no one available in their financial aid department to talk with us. On 2/25/2013 my wife called and asked to talk with the Director of the College. A man answered the phone and told her to “stop f-cking calling the school.” In March of 2013, I contacted several of my class mates to find out if they were experiencing similar problems with the school. Numerous people have told me that they were lied to by their admissions advisers during the enrollment process. One student told me that he was also promised a life time access to the learning portal for educational resources so that he could come back at later times to brush up on what he learned. He also told me that he was lied to about being provided eBooks and text books. Additionally, another student informed me that she had been contacted by someone at the school claiming to be a compliance person who asked her if she would file a complaint against me for harassment for my contacting her by email asking her about her experiences with the school. She immediately told them that I had not been harassing her. The person she talked to became very belligerent with her and threatened to expel her from school if she did not cooperate with them. Stevens Henager College is nasty organization to get involved with. If you are currently thinking about enrolling with these scumbags, do not do it. They will lie to you, rip you off and who knows what the heck they are doing with your personal and credit information.

    This is a great Facebook page because numerous web sites with complaints about SHC are all posted there. Kind of like a one stop place for all the information you may or may not want to know about this diploma mill. There is also a very good article about the school called Stevens Henager College Diploma Mill Exposed at http://getoffthebs.com/the-truth-about-stevens-henager-college-online/ The article was actually written by some of their current employers. In one part of the article, the SCH admission advisor talks about comments around the water cooler where students are referred to as ‘stupid.’ Definitely a great read.

  • So I’m reading these reviews that appear to mostly be from people without the wherewithal to complete a college level program, now complaining about debt and lack of opportunities that they take no responsiblitity for. Did I miss something? I’m in a Masters program at the school and I was not promised a job at the end only assistance to find one. I was not asked for money, I of course completed my financial aid documents in a timely manner and made sure I understood what was and was not paid for. The school isn’t perfect but it isn’t a scam either. The class are real and you certianly need to do more than just show up.
    If you are looking for a school that will send you a refund check and make your classes easy, this is not yoru school, if you have a specific reason why you want to go to college and don’t want to waste your time in a 50-1 community college classroom or a state college 200-1 lecture hall with their set hours, it si a decent option.

  • I began with SHC last year enrolling in Bach deg for Web Design. So far they still can’t make up their minds if it is a Graphic Arts or Computer Sciense course. I was going fine until I took my first Illustrator course. This is when they rolled out their Daily Checkpoints. At the time I was carrying a 4.0 GPA. The Daily Checkpoints ruined my GPA, and the fact the inmstructor felt my work was simply “copied” information. I argued with the Dean who couldn’t explain to me why she thought I uploaded a Jpeg. The Daily Checkpoint questions are the worst. They make no sense, and if they require you to follow a link to read some info or watch a video half of them don’t work. I am currently enrolled, an about ready unenroll and let them try to take money from me; gets me into court for free! I am frustrated to no end right now. Both my classses require the use of Adobe InDesign, a program I have used once. However, one instructor recommends I take time to learn it on my own to continue with the current cirriculum. Oh, I have loads of time to do that. I spoke to my Academic Advisor who didn’t know what to do. I spoke with him to today and was told that the Registrar feels since I took Photoshop and Illustrator I should be well prepared for these classes. Gee I guess knowing how to use a text editor should make you an expert a MS Office too, right?! And how the heck would they know?! I am in week two of my courses, and have done zero assignments. Now I have a call into the Dean of Graphic Arts. It took two days to hear from my Academic Advisor, let’s see how long this takes. Oh, and I believe the Dean I will be talking to will be the one that talked to me like I was fifteen when I contested my final grade in Illustrator. I have a feeling I am older than she is, and she needs to learn respect for those who are paying her salary. My best advice do what I’m gonna do, RUN!! Avoid this college like it is the plague. I’m tired of doing the leg work and sitting in limbo. No one can give me a straight answer. I don’t have time to learn a new program, and should I really have to? I am going to school to learn from the college courses, not on my own!

  • I have read all of the stories on here. I really have to say that I am enjoying this school and I have been here almost two months now. I never had a problem with anyone. For the ones who had problems I can understand.I had those moments as well. Yes, the amount you would have to pay is high but at the same time a lot of colleges and universities I have went to or viewed were as high as SHC. Everyone has a choice to go there or not. If you have signed the paperwork you knew what you were getting yourself into. It is no ones fault but yours. Everyone has their views about adminstrators, the dean, or instructors. All instructor won’t know everything you are expecting them to know. So giving a college a try doesn’t hurt. Its the experience you get. Now if you have received an instructor that did not intruct the way you expected then its not your fault they were hired and then its not the school’s fault either. Its the instructor who taught the instructor in the first place or that instructor didn’t learn well by applying what you are trying to get yourself. Now if you look at the bigger view and you were taught well and you got hired to teach, mostly likely students would said they like they way you teach. Now if you wasn’t taught well and you were teaching students would say why did they hired a instructor that didn’t get a positive evaluation about what that person learned in order to be an instructor. Everyone has to look at the point of view and see where you fit in if that was you teaching. How would you feel if someone told you the same thing. Do they know you? Do they know where you was going to school at? Does the boss who hired you knew what you are taught and did they test you enough for you to teach? Ask yourself those questions. Then you can see why they do what they do and you do what you do. Choices. Just put your shoes in there. You can’t really pin point the answers until you are there. I have never been there to see. I have experience a lot of schools are troublesome and high pricy but who is at fault for signing the papers and not knowing the true details. Just because there is bad rep at many colleges and they take your money all school will. The workers who work there are trying to make a living just as you are doing what is expected of them. They didn’t write the instructions for them to teach the students, they didn’t write the prices of what a degree cost. They are going by what their boss or the school’s policy is. If you are working don’t you have to follow their rules. Don’t you hear people talking about the companies people work at. Fact is don’t blame people for doing their job that they can’t change it. SO good luck to the ones who don’t see the big picture and Good luck to the ones who does like the college cuz i do my self and never had a problem. The people I speak with are very concern and caring and then someone of them are students themselves.

    Honestly, a regionally accredited school is light years ahead of any national accreditation. Regional > National. Out of all of the nationally accredited “for profit” schools, Stevens Henager is one of the better ones. It’s all relative. Many people have graduated from all of these schools and have been successful. For every dissatisfied person there’s 10 satisfied people from any school. Do your own research and make up your own mind. You can find negative info on ANY school. My sister attended Stevens Henager and graduated in 2010. She has a good paying job she loves. I’ve worked in lead generation for all of the above mentioned schools (and many more) for over 5 years now. I know a lot about for-profit schools. In my opinion and from what I’ve seen over the years, AI is the worst. If you want to go to Stevens Henager, then go. If you don’t, then don’t. I think they’re getting a bad rap here when many other schools deserve the negative press more than Stevens Henager. Just my $.02.

  • Where to start? Believe it or not, I am a current employee with this institution. Someone, somewhere is making a whole boatload of money and it is not the employees. A faculty member makes $1100 per class. Students are charged close to $2500 or more per class. At the current rate of 30 students to 1 faculty member. This is $75,000 per class. Where in the world is the money going? It certainly is not paying for quality of programs. Unfortunately, word has got out about the school. As such, the school is trying to change names and operate under Independence University. Management has watched a falling enrollment/completion rate and knows that its reputation is non-existent (look at above comments). Employers will not look at individuals with a degree from Stevens Henager and so instead of resolving the problem they got together and thought, “hmmmmm what should we do – I know – let’s just continue what we are doing and operate under a new name.” And hence the new Independence University was born. Do yourself a favor, do your family a favor and post on your Facebook page to absolutely avoid this institution. Unless, you have $80,000 to burn and want a worthless degree, DO NOT GO HERE!

So i figured sure they can pull my credit from the debt and i can pay that off. So i Called school, they said i owed 2200 and then told me to call the debt collections and i called 2 weeks and the girl finally called back told me she couldnt talk to me because the debt was picked up from the school. so i called the school back they said it was and that it would be put into my next payoff debt. and that was 2300 dollars BEFORE I GOT MY DIPLOMA! So i called Bret, he told me I only owed 784 for the last time so i paid that off. They finally gave me my transcripts. I went to classes for 2 courses and they still say now i owe 3400.

I have been really nice and have offered to pay anything but for 2 classes and not even get a computer or anything from it should not be 3400 dollars out of my pocket! This school is a fail school! Yes easy A. But costs way more then others. Im going for my asso. in accounting and it would cost me 50k for this school and 30k for Devry! I take my business elsewhere!

  • I came on this site to research and see if there is any lawsuite because i too am a disgruntled ex-student. I stayed for about a year in graphic design, then they switched “profesors”half way through semester and the new one was clueless, i went to the dean and recieved a cold shoulder, he wasnt willing to do anything or document it. So i stopped going and found out through workforce services how brutally raped i was. Now im dealing with creditors for my loans and dont feel i should have to pay for false services that were not rendered. I tried to transfer credits but was a waiste of time. Now i cant continue my education. I am more than willing to join an action. The education system should assist and further peoples lives, not prevent it and ruin credit. SHC needs to be shut down and face repercussions for false advertisement and conning the community. Anyone with fu rther info on what and how to do so lease contact me. C.maynard37@ gmail.com

  • Out of 83 reviews there are two or three employee reviews saying how fantastic it is? Let’s see? Who do we believe? People who are PAID by Stevens Henager, or the other unsolicited information that’s been posted, by students, by staff, by former staff stating otherwise? This place is seriously a joke. Having two employee reviews back to back is highly suspect, and not exactly subjective. Then the positive comment that follows can’t even spell “Awesome.” If that’s actually a college student they’ve enrolled, that speaks volumes as to supporting the other claims made here.

  • I see so many negatives, so few positives, about a school I have loved from the day I started working with them. We CARE about our students. We have a family atmosphere that we pass along to our students. They are NOT numbers in the Online division, which is amazing considering we rarely see a face, except when we chat with our student/FB friend. I don’t lie to my students. They all are told about accreditation, and what that can mean to them when it comes time for any sort of credit transfers. The truth about that, is NO SCHOOL, nationally or regionally accredited can take an entire degree for transfer. Would you feel comfortable attending a school who took an entire degree you have in Math when you are going for a higher degree in Medical Science?? Do you know how intricate the coursework is for that degree program? Think about it…. Also, I don’t lie about the cost, how it’s paid for, the benefits of how we run our payment programs, etc. It’s not ethical. Our way of doing it truly DOES make it better for the student in the long run. All schools have issues with staff and instructors, and that’s why we give you the names and numbers of Deans, Advisors, Instructors, and you can always go back to your original Admissions Consultant for help. We don’t forget you. And if that person no longer works for SHC., you speak to a Director, and they will help. That’s been MY experience, and I have been employed in the Online Division for longer than most of the others there. The turnover is less than in many of the other schools that promote online programs. And by the way, I know many, many students who ARE working in their fields. A couple of them are working in my doctor’s office! I never knew until I saw their faces up on the CONGRATS board in a local campus office and went to my appointment to see them taking my blood pressure. It was great to see them! I also, personally, have several “upgraded” students. Students who loved the SHC experience so much, they decided to move on up to the Bachelors, and even Masters programs. All schools have problems. They all have their negatives. SHC is no different. But I can say that for the most part, we try very hard to make it work for our students. And, no offense, but let’s take a look shall we, at the “nom de plumes” of those who posted offensive, negatives on this site. Doesn’t that tell you anything? I hope I have helped you see that although SHC is not perfect, I am one of many who do NOT lie, cheat or steal to “get your money”. We are paid a salary to do our job. We are not paid a commission, nor are we paid bonuses for heads or referrals. We are like you….doing our best to make a living ethically and morally. Thanks for reading!

They talked to my friend first, they didn’t tell her how much, how long she’d be in school, none of that. They told her they didn’t have that information yet. But when they called me, I asked every question in detail. He told me that the $78,000 I would be paying was an “investment” into SHC. then when I told him that I wasn’t interested due to the cost, he replied, “I never said 78,000… I said 70,000…” Wow, big difference. He said what he wouldn’t allow me to give up until I got all the facts. That’s what brought me here.

    the VP, does she ever lie, she lies more than a cronic liar. “oh wait, she is a cronic liar”

    what can i say…they dont have a paper trail to any student records other than the one they make, so if a student has an issue its never noted in any file. so if you troll this page page enough, and if you have have an issue with this school, conact the department of education in your area, the FTC, the BBB, and the school ask to speak to the director of the school or the CEO.
    because he said him self “ive never delt with students before” and with enough support, this school can be brough to justice.

    fight your student loans with them, ask for a NO interest loan if you have one.

  • In the late months of 2009 my world was changing, I had been a manager in hospitality for 12 years, striving to make the companies I worked for better. I had accomplished that with flying colors and these companies were now thriving. Being hired into failing businesses to change the trajectory of the path of the business. I had come to the conclusion I was ready to better myself and further my education. I wanted to open up new doors of opportunity and thought that this was the way to do it.
    In Feb 2010 I started school at Stevens Henager in the Graphic Arts Design Program. I was loving it. Learning so much knew information, and getting great grades. I felt better about myself and the things I was getting done. I felt I was really on the right path to a new beginning, a new career. About 2 months into classes and my health started to fail drastically. Losing weight at alarming rates, not being able to eat or drink anything without being in immense pain. I continued my classes through this first month of hospital visits and first surgery. They said my gallbladder was causing my health problems, so they removed it. I went home shortly after surgery and was in more pain than before this all began. I had gone to the hospital time and time again, doctors, anyone who would listen. My gallbladder was gone and I was still withering away to nothing, in constant pain, through this I kept up on my classes. After a month of visits they had found they missed a large tumor on my pancreas that they had found the year prior and never advised me of. It had to be removed and soon. I called the school and spoke to my adviser, Wanda. I informed her of everything that had been going on with my health. We spoke in length about my options for school, as this next surgery they were basically going to saw me in half to get this tumor out. Recovery times in ICU were 2 weeks and then 2 months at home on pain killers and no movement. I told Wanda, my school adviser you guys appointed, I was concerned about being in ICU and on strong pain killers to try to comprehend what I would be learning in my classes and retain the information. Since I was paying for my education I wanted to remember it. Wanda stated the best option I have is to be put on hold and I could pick up my classes where I left off when my recovery was complete. I have emails and witnesses to back this up as well. So I went ahead with the surgery and felt I had done everything I could to secure my education after my recovery.
    Slowly my recovery was taking place and I kept in touch with Wanda as to keep her up on my progress. To my surprise when my 2 months was about about up and I was feeling like a human again and off the prescriptions from the doctors, in July 2010 I tried to contact Wanda only to find out she was no longer with the company. I thought this was no problem until I find out, putting a student on hold is not even a option that is offered. Then I was told that I would have to reapply because I had been dropped, like I had quit school. The next bit of information was what pushed me over the edge, that my new payment would be $480 a month. WHAT??? I was paying $80 a month before this all started. Because your employee set me up with false information, Hold is not an option, If I would have known this in the beginning I would have done my classes while they were operating on me! The stress that this situation has created is unimaginable. The hours and days I have spent on hold, the time spent struggling with what to do, writing letters, and just plainly crying myself to sleep and at times hoping I don’t wake. The Situation the school has caused is something that has ruined an innocent girls life. My only want was to better myself and contribute back to the world. Now I look at the world as and ugly entity, with matter only caring of its self. And now I can’t further my education because of this imaginary “hold” term used by your employee. My life is in limbo as this matter has been overlooked and under thought. I have tried to resolve this issue with you several ways. I have contacted the school only to get treated rudely and transferred for hours to no one that can help or even have a clue about the circumstances. I contacted the commissioner in Utah, he suggested I contact the Better Business Bureau in Utah and the Business Licensing Center for Utah. I was informed that the state has no control over for-profit schools. So I wrote a letter explaining the situation to the BBB and though many correspondences with the school, we had come up with an agreement. The school never honored that contract. So I turned to the Department of Education, They wanted nothing to do with this, except their money, until they found out the school had lied to them as well. My School Grants were turned into loans because they thought I quit school. I NEVER QUIT SCHOOL!!! THE SCHOOL QUIT ME!!! I am now in debt tens of thousands of dollars for trying to better myself and because I chose Stevens Henager College to pursue my education. The original agreement I entered into with the school was all I was ever after. I had been wronged and my only hope is that I can find someone who cares enough to help right this awful mistake that has basically ended a life.

    I fortunately got my foot in the door to a really good company NOT with the help of Stevens Henager. The fact that I had an Associates degree helped. 5 years later I wanted to pursue a bachelors degree and now live out of state. All the reviews are right, this is a for profit school and NONE of your credits will transfer to a university. I had to enroll in a community college and literally get a second Associates Degree to transfer to the University to receive a 4 year regionally accredited degree that so many employers seek. A degree from Stevens Henager is an expensive useless piece of paper, and I just barely paid my loan off. As I look back and compare my experiences with the university and community colleges to Stevens Henager, Stevens Henager’s quality of education is so low and they should not be in business. They lied to me that my credits would transfer, they lied about job placement, and to top it off I had to start all over again. I was young, naive, with a baby on the way and they promised me a degree worthy of my time and that I would be placed in a job within 12 months. Save your money. This college is not worth one cent. Community colleges offer so many programs and have a lot of flexibility with online classes- and ALL the credits transfer to 4 year universities that will indeed give you better opportunities for success. Best of luck to you all in your search for a good school. Please don’t choose this one or any for profit school for that matter.

  • Stevens Henager College is the biggest load of bull S*$% I have ever endured! This school promises a better future… I have a bachelors in Health Care Administration. Employers have caught on to how worthless this degree is, and student loan companies have jumped on seeing how valuable these giant loans are. After graduating with a $56,000 ‘worthless’ degree I found a job making $12/hr. My student loans with Stevens Henager, Sallie Mae, and others are more than $842 in monthly payments. Do the math, that is more than 50% of my income. BUT they are smart enough to break it up into enough loans that each loan is less than 20% of my income, but together they add up to almost 60%…. Loop hole from the govt…. nice huh? I cannot make a decent wage, I cannot afford to pay my bills and continue to put food on the table.
    When discussing payment plans for Stevens Henager alone, I asked the FINANCIAL ADVISOR how much he thought my student loans from the gov’t would be per month and his response was “well that is between you and the federal government”…. of course he wasn’t going to tell me that I was going to have more loan payments then I could afford.
    DO NOT GO TO STEVENS HENAGER!!!! The school is a joke. It is a financial gain for them, they don’t give a sh*t about their students, only the bottom dollar.
    Oh, and that computer you get, mine didn’t even work through graduation…. that’s how amazing that computer is…. also it is included in your tuition for almost 5,000…. Go buy a Mac and go to a real school. Unless you have endless time and money to waste with Stevens Henager…..

  • I agree with almost everything everyone has said. Now, it is time we do something about it. A class action law suit is a good idea. Its pretty bad with their is a ton of students and employee’s that are un happy. I found one case where an employee is sueing Stevens Henager for discrimation of age in May of 2011. I did everything they said to do to graduate and they just keep coming up with more excuses. They can even get me an externship. That means I can’t even work for free. Apparently, most employers don’t want anything to do with this school. If you look back one of the comments an employer said was if you have Stevens Henager on your resume you just throws it in the garbage. First go to the court house and write down all the cases and attorney’s and phone numbers then call the attorney’s and see if you can get in on a class action law suit. Sense I can’t get my externship I might as well do something proactive. We can all complain, but lets all do something about it. Don’t for get to file a complant with the Utah Board of Education. This may make you feel better, go down by the entrance to the freeway and hold up a sign saying will work for free, Stevens Henager can’t find me a job. I know I am pretty angry sense I had a great attitude even though I did not like all the things that were going on. I just though it would all pay off in the end. Will soon repost after I gather more information.

  • I’m not a student with Stevens Henager. However I do work for the online department. Not much longer since Ethically, they suck. If I can, I won’t even list them on a Resume, since I don’t want to even have my name associated with them.

    There’s things person looking at this school needs to know that a “Consultant” isn’t going to tell you.

    First they are an “Open Enrollment” school. This means they have to take anyone. During an “Interview” the “student” is probed for info. “Pain points” why they want to go to school. Every Consultant reads from the same script, and you, on the phone, are just a number to post on a white board. They lie to the student saying they have to talk to the “Admissions Committee” to approve their application. The Admissions Committee doesn’t exist. It’s a ploy. If you have a pulse and a High School Diploma they’ll take you. They also lie when they say there’s limited numbers of seats in the class and if you don’t do whatever it is in a prompt manner, you loose your seat. Each class has 20 people. If it fills up, they have another class of 20, and another, and another, and another.

    Second the “Demographic” they target is some of the poorest and ill educated groups across the country. They target this group because, frankly they also know they can take advantage of them. A friendly voice on the phone promising a brighter future to someone at the poverty level who knows nothing about college. They also know that they make the most money off the student in the first six months, because the student won’t read the contract, drop out or fail. In the contract says you are agreeing, after the first month, to pay for the first semester. That’s seven classes. If you stop going they keep charging you. The worse thing is if you just stop going they also fail you for all the remaining courses in the semester block. This amounts to about $10,000. This is loan money you owe to the Government. You will owe the School money and they will have the billing department on you like flies on garbage. If you want to go back to school you have to pay for those classes yourself; The Government will not cover classes you already failed. However they will “Help” you with more loans through the school. So to get back in there’s $20,000 gone, out of the $50,000 you will end up owing for the degree.

    Another lie is cost. They tell you when they interview you “This is the cost.” It’s not. Every consultant will tell you only what the current cost of the school is. This doesn’t include yearly increases in tuition. If you were graduating now, that is what you would own. The school ups the amount by $2000-$4000 each year. You will end up owing substantially more than what you’ve been quoted.

    Another “Ethics” problem is that the programs are set up to milk every drop of Financial Aid they can get. Once you have your Associates through Stevens Henager, you won’t have enough loans left to cover your Bachelors or to transfer to another school. The only way you really can cover school with Government Aid is if you have Pell Grant, as well as the loans. There is the Stevens Henager Loan Option. What they don’t tell you up front is that the smaller your monthly payment during school, the longer it takes to pay. When you leave school you will be making payments to Stevens Henager and Payments to the Government.

    Another Lie: Free Laptop. It’s not free. You pay for it. The Consultants use the laptop to bait the student. “I need you to do *fill in the blank* so we can send you your laptop.” I’ve also heard the consultants bait people into the “Property Management” degree since if you pay money to join some association, you get 10%. That’s great, IF you are looking for Property Management. If not, they will still spin the degree so it sounds like what you are looking for. “You want to open a toy store? Great! Take Property Management and it will help you with inventory” No it won’t. I’ve also heard things like a student who was looking into Psychology be told that the programs include psychology, and that psychology is a bad degree to get. They leave out the reason they are saying that is because Stevens Henager doesn’t offer it, that Psychology is the largest growing field in the country, and that the only psychology you get is a intro course to how to be successful in school.

    They also won’t tell you the credits are worth nothing to any reputable school. The quality of the education is a joke. I don’t know how they keep a “National Accreditation” since they are a diploma mill. Still, most the students coming in struggle even though it’s 10 times easier than any college worth spitting on. A current student I talked to said he felt like he sold his soul for a laptop.

    They act like they are doing something very noble, that they are the students only hope. At the same time they make comments on the floor about the stupidity of the students. It’s disgusting. It’s also good to know they push the value of the degrees but those in the highest levels of Management for Online don’t even have anything besides High School themselves.

    Buyer Beware. There’s cheaper colleges with better reputations. Look for Non-Profit and Regional Accreditation. Irony is that Stevens Henager Salt Lake Offices for online and Corporate is in the building next to Western Governors University. WGU is online, Regionally and Nationally accredited, well respected, and will cost you about $27K for the same Bachelors Stevens Henager has at $70K or 80K. Grand Canyon University is another really good online school. Don’t trust Stevens Henager or any of the For Profits. For Profit… this means some CEO is living high on the hog on your money, feeding off mostly people at the poverty level who will never escape the debt they just sunk themselves in, and student loan money that pushes the Government farther into debt as we sink to a AA+ Credit Rating. I think people like that deserve a quick trip to Hell for eternity.

    PS They also won’t tell you school is free the first month. If you drop out, or leave, you don’t owe a penny. They intentionally don’t tell the students this so people don’t take advantage of it.

  • I enrolled into the RT online/(Independence University) program at this ridiculous school in June/2011 and boy was I ever deceived. The financial aid advisor was clueless and advised that, the school only request the financial aid to cover the tuition cost. however, they failed to disclose this information with me upfront, so they advised that I need to submit a hardship letter detailing the reason why I want all of my finaid… So I did that. I was then advised that my request was approved and they were going to make the exception…however, earlier this month I receive an email advising the following ” Our corporate office is questioning the amount of Cost of Living funding you are requesting. The Department of Education outlines that any student loans obtained must be used for educational purposes” “lease provide a budget that lists your monthly expenses, as well as what expenses you intend to use the Cost of Living funding for. This information, along with a copy of the hardship letter you previously provided will then be submitted to our corporate office for final review. The approved budget is required for your file prior to the allocation of additional funding above your tuition costs.” So of course, this is such bull, because who are they to advise me of how much funding I can receive. So I contacted my academic advisor regarding the matter, which she was very incompetent and honestly knowone seemed to be very knowledgeable of anything. It became increasingly difficult to get someone on the phone to provide basic information, they prefer questions/concerns be submitted via email through the helpdesk….ugggghhh, how frustrating. I withdrew this morning…TRUST me if you are considering this school ….I warn you not to do it! THEY WILL SEND YOU THROUGH THE RINGER AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY KNOWONE TO HELP YOU!!!! KNOWONE! I have also filed a complaint with the Utah Board of Education.

  • I’m in the Bachelor’s Computer Science Programming program. I started in 2009 and was learning a lot from my classes, and then just the past 6-7 months the quality of the education went way down. Online classes are a joke and can get an A without even learning anything. I gave two stars for quality of professors because I have met some outstanding ones who do actually teach and care about what is going on with their students and can tell you what the real world is asking for. I feel that this school isn’t preparing me for a job or a career, they just love receiving my money. I’m sick to my stomach thinking about this school and will transfer shortly even if my credits don’t transfer. Its not worth stay and finish out. I can get more for my money elsewhere. Do stay away and go to a real college or university that is regionally accredited. I regret starting here and like I said, I’m going to transfer.

After joining the military and moving around and eventually settling in New York I applied for jobs but denied. Applied to St. John’s University for the PA program and was accepted but my prior SHC doesn’t transfer AT ALL! They have repeatedly submitted claims for $1400 to a collection agency and even though I have given them proof multiple times and even had the military look into it and had it removed they STILL resubmit this claim every 2-3 years saying I still owe them money. My credit score dramatically drops every time because of this and they don’t care. They constantly tell me to send proof of payment and even tried to tell me once they wouldn’t accept the proof because the person who signed the letter stating I had a zero balance had quit a few years prior. So, BE WARNED! This school is a joke and a scam. They should be shut down!

  • I just finished at College America, SHC’s sister school. I would advise anyone who wants to go to college to stay away from this school. I went to one of the Colorado campuses. The majority of the instructors where very knowledgeable and had worked for years in their field, a 20 year MA, an assistant coroner, a Laboratory Tech with a Bachelor’s degree, a former Army nurse, and a 40 year RN. The instructors were great and I learned a lot from them, but I was lied to by admissions and financial aid from the beginning. I made it know to them from the beginning, before I even signed the papers, that I wanted to gain a higher education, they said my credits would transfer, they don’t. For the money I paid to go here I could have probably almost have paid for a Bachelor’s degree at a real college. Luckily, I went to a different community college before hand and all of the credits transfer to the local community college here and then those transfer big colleges such as CU, CSU, and DU. I plan to start college in the fall at a community college so I can put of paying for the $38,000 learning experience until after I complete Med School in eight or so years.
    My advice to those looking to go to a real college, start with a local community college then transfer. If you just want a career, again, check with the local community college as they are likely to have the same programs for WAY less. Avoid this, every SHC associated college, and any “for profit” college you see advertised on the television like the plague!

  • The professors at SHC are absolutely pathetic. They don’t know what they’re teaching, they never actually teach you how to do anything in the Design Programs. The only time you would learn anything is in the first three basic Design programs Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign, and this is only if you are 100% new to graphic design and have never even touched a design program. After that you’ll never learn a damn thing without teaching yourself. All the professors do is say, “Okay, this is your assignment, do it.” And it has nothing to do with how good the quality of your work, your grade is based of ONE so called professors opinion. I would transfer to a different school if my credits would transfer over. I can’t wait to be done with this pathetic excuse for a college. It’s simply a very expensive and long drawn out way to waste time and learn common sense of any type of Graphic Design.

  • There are many bad things about going to SHC and not enough reasons to consider going. I wished my husband and I had done our research before signing that contract! We got practically nothing from this so-called college but are now so far in debt after less than 6 months attending this college, that it may take a very long time to get this paid off. We were both forced to pay for a full year attendance even though we did not even complete 6 months. I was told by several so-called professors that they could not teach me what I needed to know in the time period allotted for completion of the degree. I even had a couple teachers that were clueless on some aspects of the classes they were teaching. I don’t even know if the professors are certified to teach let alone teach the college course they are instructing. It is a bad sign when you have the same instructor teaching English, Math & Business Law. Are those courses even related? What a scam!! Do not attend this so-called college.

The thing is I really tried hard in may classes and received good grades and have what I feel is a very effective Design portfolio, layout and logos mostly. I currently have a job in Design and while I am not killing making money hand over fist its enough. There was a few teachers whom I hated they were for lack of better words dumb, however there was some teachers who wanted you to work hard turn things in on time and they got canned due to bad student reviews also I think they figured out we were not learning design. They will for the most part teach you all the programs you need so as to design things they do not however go into any history or reasoning for design. Why something looks the way it does and what you need to do to make pleasing designs. If not for my inherent love of design and art i would have been screwed! I guess I basically spent $$$ to learn adobe software, get a macbook pro and adobe professional cs3. cs4 and cs5. not a horrible school if you do a lot of the work yourself but don’t expect to get a full education in graphic design.

Had I not been through bullsh*t with the government before, SHC would have taken great advantage of me, and milked my GI Bill dry off me (It’s PHUCKING PATHETIC how that piece-of-sh*t business officer trying to bullsh*t me into giving the school 50% of my GI Bill–OVER MY DEAD BODY LADY! I told her HELL NO I DON’T OWE YOU 50% OF MY EDUCATION BENEFIT! She said “Well that’s what I was told by the GI Bill trainer from the VA; they told us, the GI Bill is for education purposes only.” I sighed and said “Answer this, if the GI Bill was DESIGNED for education ONLY…WHY IN THE PHUCK, DO THEY SEND THE CHECKS TO THE VETERAN INSTEAD OF THE SCHOOLS THAT THE MONEY, AS YOU SAY, SUPPOSEDLY BELONGS TO?” I said, “Sorry lady, but I don’t have stupid tatted on my forehead, my education benefit, IS MY PHUCKING BENEFIT I EARNED FROM SERVING IN THE MILITARY, IT IS FOR MY BENEFI…I CAN CHOOSE WHETHER I PAY YOU OR NOT…hell! You’re not even considering the fact that the GI Bill is my only financial means and that I DON’T HAVE A PHUCKING JOB! But you’re asking me to give you half of it? Over $600 a month? WHILE I’M IN SCHOOL?! ARE YOU PHUCKING RETARDED? No one pays for school that much WHILE THEY’RE IN SCHOOL (referring to traditional schools), they pay WHEN THEY GRADUATE.” She advised me to change my language, which I did, after telling her “quit lying because I WILL REPORT YOU TO THE Utah Board of Higher Education…there’s only 2 members of that board, and I KNOW ONE OF THEM…DO NOT THINK you could fool me.” lol The instructors are the worst, I’ve ONLY ENJOYED three instructors from there that actually knew what the f*ck they were doing–they were legit–Master or Doctorate degree holders; you could just sense how they teach, the language, how they assign and allocate workloads per day, any question about the subject was satisfactorily answered and made clear so every student was well-informed. Other than those three instructors, the rest either had Bachelor degrees (sometimes NO DEGREE)…I don’t care much about degrees really, but NO TEACHING (or instructional/training-related) EXPERIENCE WHATSOEVER, even the Business Dean (that also taught 3 of my classes) do not have the proper credentials, I DON’T CALL THEM PROFESSORS BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE THE CREDENTIALS (Bachelor degree holders to teach a soon-to-be-Bachelor degree holder? I thought Professors were either Masters or Doctorates of their fields?) AND THEY INSTRUCT UNSATISFACTORILY (inexperienced and limited knowledge…WTF?)… AND NO, THEY DO NOT PROFESS WHAT THEY PORTRAY THAT THEY SUPPOSEDLY TEACH therefore they are not ProfessORS. You can have the sh*ttiest education, but if you have the PASSION for teaching, and what you bring to your students on a daily basis is QUALITY LEARNING material, and quality teaching methods and style besides the norm, you ARE A PROFESSOR…but none of the above? You’re just some guy looking for a job and the school just hired you cuz you were some accountant? You can KNOW YOUR STUFF…but do you know how to teach it in a way that won’t confuse students much? Anyway, I think this is a good enough review for now (hahahaha!) I didn’t realize I’m at almost 700 words, oops! You know what that means :) THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT STEVEN hehehehe

  • I am currently attending SHC for a Master’s in Healthcare Administration and I graduate this summer July 2010. I have never been asked for a dime and I don’t even qualify for a pell grant. I also attended the sister college, College America and that was a wonderful experience as well. I did show up almost everyday but, I also had to work in order to receive the grades I received. I am glad that I chose to go to SHC and I look forward to graduating with my Master’s.

    as of today (first day at the college), all they wanted from me was money, in spite of the fact that I told them that I qualify for a Pell grant. Not interested in any pell grants, just show me the cash!!!

  • The respiritory therapy program in Murray, UT is run by individuals who may not qualify to run trailer park. They lie about the program, then when you voice your opinion, they threaten you with the “black-ball” list. Stay away from this school at all costs.

  • If you want a college that you give you an easy A just show up to class. That’s all just show up… But on top of the easy A. It costs a left nut, even if you don’t have one it’ll put back some on the getting out of debt area. Good place for ungly’s, fatty’s, only beer googles will help with this school. Oh! there is no place to live. it’s a little private college.
