I came into this school fresh out of High School, young and naive. I chose to do part time because it was economical for me at the time and I couldn't afford to go to college. This college didn't provide any help for aid, which made my process longer. I came in at 17-18 years old and finished a bachelors that should've taken 4 years, at the age of 24. That is 7 years on 1 degree. This school is not worth it and neither is the education. Life after college is so much harder, because even with a degree, I cannot land a solid job in my field. The internship placement here is terrible too. You'd have to basically do everything all alone from start to finish and are expected to know how to do everything on your own. Please don't go here.
The education here is pretty solid if you're studying Legal Studies. You get a mixture of all type of law. While I was here, I studied torts, contracts, introduction to law, business law, legal ethics and professional values, advance legal writing, advanced legal research, policing courses, forensic science courses, and many more. I rate this college only a 3 because the staff and counseling could be a lot better; coming out of High School I was tricked into taking out loans I could've gotten a scholarship or aid for going to school. When explaining at the time that my parents were separated, they asked me so many other questions pertaining to their marriage which weren't ethical for a 17 year old to answer. Later on when I tried to transfer, they said my credits wouldn't transfer with me. I'd say be mindful before choosing this college. It is overpriced for the education you'll get.
The administration team is very helpful. There are many tools for students looking for help in any subject.
I am currently a part-time online student. I am very happy with the resources available. The professors are very helpful. Anytime I have a question, I am always pointed in the right direction. The best tip I've gotten is make sure to hand in all of your work, and ask for help if you need it.
Berkeley college encouraged me to do online shooting during the pandemic and supported me the entire way.
Online classes are easy to understand and quite interactive with both other students and the professors. There is constant communication which makes it easy to resolve any concerns.
The college is good in the sense that there is a good ratio of students to professor. This just means the classes are smaller and allow for better student, professor interactions.
I've been a student for about 3 months now and so far I am impressed. I am a full-time student, that also works as a medical assistant during this pandemic while attending online classes. The workload is manageable and my professors communicate amazingly and are always understanding.
The online experience is great so far, the work is clear-cut and manageable. If you work better in the privacy of your own home than Berkeley college is for you, it's like being on a virtual campus, so you can still be involved in activities
Coming to Berkeley College all the way from a small city in another state was a game changer for me. I feel as though due to coming to Berkeley college I have been given the opportunity to have a different outlook on my educational experience. While things have been different because of Covid-19, I feel as though Berkeley College has done an excellent job helping me transition from high school to college. While it was a challenge in the beginning the Berkeley staff made sure I had every resource I needed to succeed. I do believe that if I settled for a closer college or university I wouldn't of had the experience I've had.
Didn't use left before they screwed me over any more. Though they did contact the head of the department of financial aid to come in and speak with me personally about my complaint. She tried to talk around the issue and get me to agree to sign up for more classes at a lower cost. I left the room.
Good college ,Classes are small , and great professional who will teach everything you need to succeed in your future, great staff always welcoming and helpful, the career services never let you down helping you with jobs or internships
Online classes were amazing the professors would give assignments and explain them clearly so you can understand and they always reply back if you have any comments or concerns about you assignment or grades
The professors are experienced professionals that are retired from fields like lawyers, government agents, marketers, etc. The school is extremely clean, free coffee/tea in the lobby and the lessons are small, interactive and fun. No cafeteria on campus but we get discounts at surrounding food places and the vending machines are very unique.
My experience at Berkeley College has been great so far. Friendly and respectful environment, staff is professional and helpful and the professors are amazing.
My time during Berkeley has been nice. I like the professors there because they are understanding and can work around your hardship. The curriculum was easy, to say the least. I stayed on the White Plains campus and I made an honest friend. Most of the people on that campus, however, can be really shady and two-faced. The first two weeks of staying there I landed myself in drama - which was quickly dissolved. I'm looking forward to continuing my studies at another college, but I'm grateful that I attended this college.
Attending Berkeley College has opened enormous opportunities for me. I am proud to be part of the Berkeley team
