Not For Working Adults
July 9, 2011
While Baker advertises itself as a great online program for working adults, it is anything but. Their log in requirements alone negate a "flexible" school environment. In any class, students are required to log in and post to a discussion board 5 of 7 days out of the week. Some instructors require more postings than others, and some require nearly full-page essays per posting. Few instructors help facilitate any discussion, and some actually hinder students ...

If you want to learn Obsessive Forum Posting and Advanced Concepts in APA Formatting then this is the place for you. Focus on actual course subject matter is secondary. Only good thing about this place is its CHEAPNESS. [Read more]

I was wrong
October 1, 2011
I thought I made the right decision on transfering from my community college to baker college online, but now I see I made the wrong move. I used to read online reviews on how people were unsatisfied as well as satisfied so I was confused and decided to give it a try. In the beginning, it was going great and I have a 3.5 gpa and made the deans list. I didn't mind the massive ... [Read more]

No real world staff
March 22, 2012
A large number of Baker's instructors focus solely on APA formatting and not real world implementation of skills taught. Baker's administration endorses this. Test materials and online quizzes are typically littered with errors. Do research on the institution. While they advertise a 98% employment rate for graduates, they have one of the lowest graduation rates. There are better schools for less money. [Read more]

Associates of business in graphic communications
April 1, 2013
I completed my associate degree in business at Baker in Clinton Township, with a concentration in graphic communications. In my final year, they changed the program title to Digital Media and Design. The worst part is that the teacher I had for MOST of my graphic classes, didn't even know how to use the software. Isn't that what digital media means? People have written reviews saying the cost was low for this college. $1800 for ... [Read more]

Highly challenging and rewarding
August 18, 2011
I am coming to the end of my first year with Baker and I cannot speak highly enough of the system. It is very intense and effort driven so if you are looking for an easy way to get a degree, do not go to Baker. I have read other students reviews and I agree, 5 out of 7 days you must post 2 quality posts to the board and sometimes it is difficult. It ... [Read more]

June 19, 2009
While I have nor problem with the intensity or the quantity of work for their online classes. When I first looked for information on this school there was not a lot out there to go on. I wish there was. It would have saved me a lot of grief. But I didn't like that there was no interaction whatsoever between the professors and students when it came to discussion questions. There is no meaningful exchange ... [Read more]
