What are your thoughts on Rasmussen University?

Its cheaper that the public, 4 year universities that are close to me, and its accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Its tuition is also considerably cheaper. Yet, there's something about it that doesn't feel right. Maybe I'm just biased against private, for-profit universities. What are your thoughts and experiences on Rasmussen University? Is it real, is it a good school, etc.

Kelly’s Answer

This is a legitimate school, but it's important to clarify that it's a private, profit-driven university. Such universities have often been under the microscope for various reasons. Detractors claim that these institutions place profit above the provision of quality education. This focus on profit can result in choices that favor student numbers and income generation over the quality of education and student achievement. Some profit-oriented universities are even blamed for forceful and misleading recruitment strategies, often targeting susceptible groups like low-income individuals, veterans, and ethnic minorities. These tactics may involve deceptive advertising and overblown promises about job prospects and potential earnings post-graduation. Consequently, these establishments typically have extremely high loan default rates compared to non-profit schools.

You're doing the right thing by thoroughly researching a school you're considering attending.

https://www.gradreports.com/colleges/rasmussen-university, https://www.trustpilot.com/review/rasmussen.edu, and https://www.bbb.org/us/mn/bloomington/profile/college-and-university/rasmussen-college-0704-16098/customer-reviews have reviews you may want to consider.

I would also suggest that you search for jobs you're interested in and contact those employers. Ask them their opinion on hiring Rasmussen graduates. Some may not want to comment, but I think this effort may give you some real insight on how hirable you'd be as a graduate.
