Overall Rating:

I highly recommend staying away from this school! They don't care about their students and try to screw them over every which way they can. This is mostly towards the financial aid department. Complete joke!! I'm not one to write reviews, but I wanted to warn others.

Overall Rating:

Expensive school, charges you extra for online classes; for "canvas" system they have but almost none of the teachers even use it. They end up having you go onto other sites which charge you 100+ dollars for programs they do like. Most classes I took I was charged more in books and online programs than the tuition even costed.

Overall Rating:

Don't put your educational goals in Barton's hands. Very organized school and they don't complete things in a timely manner. VERY EXPENSIVE!

Overall Rating:

Absolutely AWFUL!! The curriculum is very poorly thought out, the assignments for some of the classes have nothing at all to do with the career you are seeking; a complete waste of time. The instructors (most of them) are terrible about communication. You will not receive a response to 7 out of 10 emails that you send with questions or comments. I am truly stunned by just how disorganized their online programs are. A full semester of time and money have been completely wasted at this institution. I will now have to start all over again somewhere else, but that is better than attempting to continue on with this place for another year or two. Just terrible! If you are considering Barton....DON'T! Please, for your sake, keep searching and pass on going here.
