GRANTHAM UNIVERSITY RECOGNIZED BY ABET

I graduated Grantham University and landed an Electrical Engineering job for the Air Force. To all those Grantham doubters all I can say is you were wrong. Even ABET surveyors thought it is one heck of a valuable program. As I know most have never taken our word as graduates that this school is great, its instructors, and its administration. Grantham does value its students learning. I'll gladly show you the supporting documentation below. Yes, I'm smiling ear to ear while I say that we told you so... http://www.grantham.edu/in-the-news/grantham-university-recognized-abet/ http://main.abet.org/aps/Accreditedprogramsearch.aspx

Forced to take more credits than what's posted

I have been a student at GU since 2011. I have completed 113 credits, and the catalog indicates I need 127 to graduate. That means I need 14 more credits (two required 3-credit classes, and two 4-credit classes... one is required the other is an elective) to graduate, or, that's what I thought. When I asked the admissions office how many classes I need to complete to graduate, after almost two-weeks waiting on a response, they said I needed to complete 5 classes (two 3-credit classes and three 4-credit classes... 18 more credits). This means I need 131 credits to graduate. I am seeking legal council about this. How can a college promote 127 credits to graduate on their website and in their catalog and then when the student is ready to complete the course, force s/he to take an extra class? The only thing I can think of is MORE MONEY from the student. I would transfer but it would end up costing me more, and I would have to take even more classes, as many of GU classes probably would not transfer. If you decide to go there, read everything!!!! and make sure you know how many credits you will need to complete for graduation.

My Experience

BS Electronics Engineering Technology - October 2, 2010

I attended this university for a week. I will give a quick rundown of the admissions part and what didn't sit right with me. First of all I had to start a week later than was planned because I could never get a hold of my admissions rep (I would call every day). I did get a hold of her the day before I was going to start classes and she didn't want to cram so she postponed my date for a week later. Once I started I was told that none of my previous college, military, training, or certificates were going to transfer over towards my degree. Seems a little fishy to me when the university that I went to after dropping Grantham transferred 42 credits. Seems like Grantham wants to con you into taking more courses with them so they can rake in the money. Also a friend of mine that I know goes to Grantham, they told him that he was going to have credits that will transfer. The credits that they transferred didn't even go towards his degree! They just sit there in a bucket not being used, just another example of Grantham wanting money. I won't say what university I ended up going to because I don't want to sound like I am trying to sell something here. I did call/email/chat with around 20 different online universities before I made my mind up and I am so happy where I am at now. Great military reps etc... Do your research and choose what your gut tells you.

Grantham SUCKS!!!!!!!!!

This college has let me down. Starting my first lab with them i found out 3 weeks into the course that i had the wrong version of there computer lab. So i got the right one ordered. It was back logged it took another 6 weeks to get. After starting the lab over i received zero help from my instructor. I requested 8 times to drop this course. Which they did not do. Then i got an letter from the Navy wanted me to pay for my class that i failed. How could this be i had requested to be withdrawn. bottom line was that i was over the time limit to get it withdrawn. I contacted Gratham and explained the whole situation. They finally paid the Navy for the course. But low and behold they still posted an F for the course. Now i can not take any courses using TA because i have a GPA below 2.0. Thanks Grantham for nothing. Not only can i not take any classes from you i can't take any courses from anyone else using TA.
