School Tution is expensive, and it’s not worth It.. They are very persuasive, but 11,900 for just a semester ? You will eventually be stuck with them for life .. housing is horrible we have mold , air condition is poor quality .. eventually you won’t be staying in the newest dorms .. but it’s what you make it and what we young adults want to pay for

The school is not a bad college if you want to just get a degree and make a couple connections in the process. But As far as the facilities go they are not up to par with the money that is being paid. There are teachers and staff who really care but there are also staff members who are not straight forward. There is a lot of bias towards certain students and the higher ups pick and choose who they target. Staff members know who participates in illicit activities and they allow some of them to maintain such activities but crack down on others. Punishments are not handed out equally and are not just. There is also a lack of organization.

Please dont send your kids to this place, this is no real school. They're only about the financial aid, there is criminal activity on this campus. And is being protected by the administration,my son was accused of committing a crime and kicked off the campus. The school is engaged in fraud and claims my son owes 8,000 dollars to the school. Well he attended only 2months. How is it possible to owe that type of financial aid in that short length of time. The president and his administration refuses to speak with me or my son. Jarvis has cheated and robbed a black child out of 8,000 dollars. Yet, claiming to be for the cause of black kids to excel. Jarvis needs closing permanently. Do not send your kids there, parents be ware.

Jarvis Christian CollegeI rate Jarvis four stars (approximately a full rating). Despite the conflicting boundaries within its premises, I respect its nature; coming from a busy urban area.I speculate a lot of contradicting reviews from returning/transferring/graduate students in regard to its poor-aspects. A lot of students/reviewers are lacking the appreciation of its nature, thus, not considering the larger drama.Jarvis Christian College is an HBCU (Historically Black College University) located within the grounds of a predominantly white rural town/city.From my observation, I receive a lot of common stereotypes that reflect the multitude of myths many pre-transitioning and returning-students bring on the campus. This pattern can negatively impact the reputation of Jarvis Christian College.Other negative reviews dive deep into specifications such as, poor-student life, poor-renovation, low-quality/basic academic placement in education, lack of available resources, atmosphere, etc.Jarvis Christian College is earnestly seeking the essential feedback needed to assemble, and persist a healthy-college life for its incoming and returning students.Its student-activities, interns, clubs, job-fairs, work shops, and other programs are designed to keep students occupied (in the workplace, outside campus, etc.). Its not a matter of pressuring students, but rather implementing the fundamentals needed to enlighten their understanding, and enhance their reputation. Therefore, all advantages will increase the likeliness of a scholarship.
