Student Reviews and Ratings for Western Oklahoma State College
I took a couple of classes here while I was stationed at Altus AFB. I enjoyed my English teacher, but this school has a huge problem with integrity. I was billed $500.00 after using my financial aid. When I called to dispute the charges, I explained that I wasn't taking classes at the campus, but online instead. (they were charging me library use fee, parking fee, and "technical fee". When I got that cleared up, I asked what the other few hundred dollars were for and the woman told me "I don't know". The faculty in admissions was rather rude too. Needless to say, I stopped taking classes at WOSC after that experience. Contrary to what they claim, WOSC is not very military friendly. I had a friend (military also) who also was almost scammed out of money. Save your money and time and enroll in a real college, not this close-minded redneck circus act.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
