Joanne’s Answer

Some red flags could be responsiveness of the staff. You shouldn’t have to wait for answers to any questions you may have. But what might be a red flag for one student may not be an issue at all. Make sure you understand all
Of the associated costs for your education. Ask questions about availability of classes that you need to complete your program. That’s another important factor as well.

Ben’s Answer

If you have a major in mind, be sure to search if the school you are applying to has a reputable program that covers that major. Also, search the alumni community to see if the network is robust, as those connections will help you get a job!

Cianna’s Answer

If the administration has problems whilst dealing with you (delayed/cancelled appointments, showing up late, etc.), I typically take this as a red flag of disorganization within the college administration. If you really want to be certain, you can reach out to alumni in the field and ask for their opinion. Also if the administration rep seems to be overly pushy, I would tread cautiously. A good college can rely on their reputation and won't need to push for students. Best of luck!

You need to speak with current students whenever possible! They will give you valuable insight on the day-to-day life of a student on campus as well as information about your major.
