Lamar University Reviews
I transferred as a junior into Lamar's online degree completion program and attended fully online. The condensed 8-week classes were informative and moderatelychallenging. Tuition rates were competitive and I feel like the education was of good value. My professors treated me well and showed they wanted me to succeed by providing extra help and encouragement. With the guidance of my incredible academic advisor, I managed to graduate 2 semesters earlier than anticipated, even while working full-time. 2 days after graduation, I started my new job that required a bachelor's degree. Highly recommend for anyone with outside responsibilities!
Everything this far has been great! We'll see how this goes in the future. Only time will tell. Everything that I've been told has been true. All of my appointments have been prompt, professional, and overall made me feel as if the staff is there for an individual. When I email or call the response has been efficient and done in a timely manner. My work schedule is the same as my Advisory's. She did make sure that she made me feel like everything in life can be done if you put forth effort. She woke up earlier and called me at 7:30 AM as promised the day before to ensure that I was enrolled in my classes. That made me view change in a different manner because I did not change my schedule at all. Every morning at that time I'm driving to work talking on my blue tooth. This situation motivated me even more to know that all things can be done, one just have to let another be aware of their situation. The thing that got to me most is the time of appointment wasn't my idea and the honesty.
I have loved going to this college! They have an amazing staff that really cares about the well being of their students. For example, before each semester starts your counselor contacts you to make sure you are all set for the semester. Their online system is very easy to work and updated with no problems I have experienced in my years attending. Not to mention the cost of attending Lamar University is unbeatable!
