Shady business practices and mishandling student loan funds. This is why for-profit higher education should not be legal! I just hope all of their students get their loans forgiven. If the college is in an office building, beware!

Their only goal is to suck down GI Bill money, by printing diplomas.

My experience at this college has been horrible. I started the doctoral program as a traditional student and things were good until I relocated to another state and had to continue the program online. I completed the courses and started my dissertation blocks and the online service was a complete rip off. I paid for dissertation blocks and didn't have a chair and when I did get one in the middle of the 1 week block, the chair gave me an NC for my grade and I had to repeat the block. The chair didn't give me guidance during the time that she served and I complained about it to campus president with an official complaint and she never responded. I got another dissertation chair and she was no good either and signed on as my chair in the middle of my dissertatoin block and she also gave me an NC grade then I was removed from the program. I have requested my tuition back because they didn't service me fairly as a student and I feel robbed of my student loan money. I have gone through all the channels to get this matter resolved since 2014 and to date , this school took no responsibility for not helping me succeed. The two chair persons that I had did absolutely nothing to help me get my dissertation chapters done. In fact, the first chair changed my entire dissertation one week before the block ended and gave me an NC grade. I'm done with Argosy University and wouldn't recommend this school to any one because they don't provide the service to online students as they do students that come to traditional class settings and its a shame for a campus president to receive a complaint from a student via email and never respond. I'm stuck with owing thousands of dollars and I don't have a Phd and I certainly want all to know beware of Argosy San Diego Campus, its FRAUD!!!!

Wonderful school unless there's an emergency or you get sick then you are just screwed. They tell you one thing and completely turn around and do that complete opposite. I would not recommend this school.
