Beware of Franklin University Columbus Ohio
May 10, 2012
Franklin's curriculum is backwards to traditional colleges. Franklin University's classes have one teaching themselves first,then going to class and finding out how one did. Assignments are give, and are to be completed before one even starts a class, then you show up for your first class,and turn in assignments. Further,depending on how the teacher delivers the material, one may not get instruction for the next assignment until the following face to face meet. Imagine if ... [Read more]

Service of Franklin University Staff
May 15, 2012
Typically every time I call into the financial aid department I received a different response regarding the same questions. Representatives answer the phone with not enough information to answer questions. I have a current teacher that yawns during her presentations via Franklin Live and conducts herself very unprofessionally. This same teacher fails to respond to emails. Hence causing me to drop the class. The Academic Advisers are not able to answer their phones and takes ... [Read more]

Online IT is HORRIBLE
August 3, 2009
When something in the course is wrong, they don't care, and I have found multiple things wrong with every course that I have taken. I have gone to two schools before Franklin University, and I have never been this frustrated. I would have transferred out of here, but I can't afford it. The online material is weak. The teachers for the online courses are only part-time and have another full-time job so it takes up ... [Read more]

I earned both my bachelors and MBA from Franklin. During my MBA I was using the Post 9/11 GI Bill and never had an issue with financial aid. Franklin took care of everything which made it easy for me to concentrate on school. In my undergraduate, I was using grants and student loans. Again, Franklin took care of everything. Scheduling was easy, I never had a single issue with financing, scheduling, any of that. I ... [Read more]

Avoid this place like the Plague!
July 23, 2013
This place has me so furious I cannot see straight! I signed up for more information for a Bachelors degree and before I knew it they had me signing up for classes. The only problem is that's where they leave you, signing up for classes and nothing more. I called this university several times to get some assistance because there were no local offices near my home. I never received any support; in fact each ... [Read more]

Franklin University (Columbus, Ohio)
August 8, 2006
I've found Franklin to be Top Notch in all respects. Very throrough and organized and all my expectations have been met. They offer classes in multiple lengths of 6 weeks, up to the traditional semester. I was impressed that everything was covered in 6 weeks in a depth that will really help me, instead of glossing over things to get thru it on time. Great professors. The online format is proprietary but easy to use. ... [Read more]

Great programs; Support/Services Lack
August 29, 2012
Flexibility was my primary reason for attending Franklin. Nearly every degree is available online; on-campus classes are one-night a week. Their trimesters allow for lighter course loads. In my undergraduate (BSBA), I took a back-to-back six-week courses over a twelve/fifteen-week courses. In the MBA program, it's just back-to-back six-week courses, but heavier material. Though not highly accredited (with the "gold" standard like Harvard and Yale), the MBA is a quick 16-month program that is regionally ... [Read more]
