Bryan University - Tempe Reviews
The communication between EVERYONE at Bryan University is amazing. Not only can you talk to your instructors, but you have an advisor for each class, a financial advisor and an admissions advisor. You can reach everyone online through their email, but they also give you their phone numbers. They reach out to you regularly to make sure you're doing well, and can set up a study session if need be. They are friendly and supportive. The online classes are organized and easy to work with. The classes are small so you get more one on one time with your instructor. I love it!
i love this college! the professors, the students and the dean are all very nice and accommodating. i have chronic migraines and can not stare at a computer screen all day so they pay for me to have hard back books.
More activity in assistance for those students who've completed the school. It was with your support that students learned and completed the requirements. Will they still have that support once they make it to the finish line (graduation)?
The best part about Bryan University - Tempe is how flexible they are with scheduling, it makes it easy to work around everyone schedule when you’re a mom of three. The fact you can do it all online makes it that much easier too, don’t need to find a babysitter when I can sit in my house with my children. All around an amazing program.
There are morning or evening classes available do you can work your schedule around them
They help you obtain your first professional certification in the field as a part of your tuition no extra costs
The class set up they use for online classrooms is great! It is like really being in the same room. Lots of participation and activities to enhance your learning.
The teachers are very hands on. They are there to help you and answer all of your questions.v the online classroom sessions are great
They help you out every step of the way. From enrolling, getting scholarships and funds, to starting your first classes!
The registration process was the easiest thing ever. I tried applying to my local community college and they kept coming up with forms that I was "missing", even with all of the correct forms and money ready to pay up front that campus still did not want to let me in (later to find out that their location would have been more than happy to have me) at Bryan I talked to an Admissions Counselor and he stayed on the phone with me for 4 hours and walked me through the application, FASFA, what ever i needed he was there! It was easy with his help. Every staff member that i have come in contact with are the exact same way they will stay with you until something is done.
The way the school works is you get to learn real life work in order to prepare you for jobs outside of schools. They also mentioned that they can connect you with internships (most people have already gained confidence enough before graduation to go out and get a job)
At first online learning seemed like it would be terrible. At Bryan almost every course is associated with a "Live Class". In a live class your in an online class room that you get to talk to everyone, interact, and message. In the live class you also get to screen share so it makes visuals a lot easier to use.
The work load can sometimes be heavy- HOWEVER it is an accelerated program so with that comes work load no matter what school you go to. The programs seem to fit my way of learning. The way i learn is i need to know why i'm learning it, how to apply it in the 'real world' and how to use it to advance my career and that is EXACTLY hot the instructors teach. They all like visuals and don't want you to sound like a robot. They want you coming out of the program with hands on experience.
I think it is great because they spread the workload out throughout the week, which makes it easier to turn assignments in on time. The only frustration I have had is taking quizzes in the coding classes. They just changed from ICD-9 to ICD-10 in October of 2015, and the test have answers that are incorrect on them. The good part is that it makes me review the test once I am finished more closely. I am sure that issue is being addressed at this time, and being corrected. Everything else is great. I am very pleased to be attending college at Bryan University, I even got my sister enrolled!
I love the online classes. The interactive books are terrific! The teachers are so helpful and knowledgeable. There are always opportunities to debate issues, ask for extra help and help others. They like for the students to interact and try to help each other, which is great, it helps you retain information that you learned and reiterate that what you learned is correct. The registration process was walked through step by step with me, I was so thankful. The workload is usually spread out through the week so that you can submit the assignments in a timely manner.
I love my teachers, they are the best. They are all so nice and helpful. The college in a whole is a good institution. I feel that I am learning everything I need to advance in the career that I am going to college to acquire. My classmates and I are always willing to help each other. The teachers try to get us to initiate study buddy classes with each other, it is like a student tutoring session amongst ourselves. I have tutored classmates a few times, I enjoy it very much, it also helps me retain information that I have read from the chapters each week. You learn so many things that will help you in your career. You learn Math, English, Law and Ethics,Critical thinking, Medical Terminology, Finances (which helps you learn how to manage your money, which is a great tool) and Computer science. It is a very versatile course. I am proud to be a college student at the age of 48, and I am very pleased that I chose Bryan University. Not only are they teaching me, they are trying to help me obtain a job in Healthcare industry! It is so much more than just an education.
I am planning to start as a medical biller/coder. I would like to go into auditing codes in the future. I am attending college because I am 48 and have had a hard time obtaining and keeping jobs. They seem to move, or close down. I chose the medical field because I am sure that there will always be jobs in this industry. I have people from the University sending me job leads weekly, it is wonderful. They also pay for the Ahima certification exam once you graduate. The alumni are always available for questioning, that is a big plus. I feel great at the amount of support that I receive from everyone at the college.
