Even when I'm all set to pick up my diploma, they still try to squeeze money out of me.

I initially was really excited to start school here but it is an absolute NIGHTMARE if you are a working adult. They do not offer any weekend registration or financial aid counseling, but say the school is designed to accommodate everyone (like a working adult). If you cannot get off work, you cannot register or receive counseling. The e-mail responses are sparing, and they DO NOT respond once they've replied once. There is no such thing as a conversation via e-mail with a counselor/ financial aid rep/ or really anyone. If your school e-mail is down, your SOL because the password reset NEVER works on the site (I really think its to placate how terrible the system is). The IT guys are really nice, and I believe they are students. The workers in financial aid are nice too and do what they can within their boundaries, and the advisors are nice but only to your face. The administration is CLEARLY run by people who are trying to cut costs at every angle. The board of directors is made up of yuppies who are in bed with the mayor and are nouveau Jersey City. This school has caused me so much stress I checked into a hospital twice while I was in school taking classes. I had to seek professional counseling and intensive therapy because of how absolutely horrible the counseling services are. The counselor who reached out to me was not available, did not respond in time (I HAVE A JOB--- JUST LIKE YOU) and really didn't seem like she was going to effectively counsel me. I was smack in the middle of a breakdown and her unresponsiveness and lack of concern was a tipping point. Once I was ready to go back, I had to submit paper work 3 times before the woman confirmed she received it and told me it would take 6 weeks to let me know! I am not in the business of name dropping so I have purposely left all these employees names out. I have my receipts though (Time stamped emails to said employees, counselors, etc)! And I hope they really clean up their act. If you are a student and have experienced something similar, I IMPLORE you to leave a review so other adults do not have to go through what we went through. If you have not enrolled, DON'T, especially if you work a normal 9-5! Go to a community college in the city or go to Bergen.

The financial aid center is nothing but students doing a horrible job. They don't help and are always confused. The curriculum itself is terrible and the professors are not engaging.

I only took one class at the jersey city location, I don't like it as much as I do like the north Hudson campus which is where I take now all of my classes, the stuff is very nice, and the building is very clean. just make sure you know what you have to do to work towards your degree if you are planning on transferring, the counselors wont help you much too be honest.
