Rating 3.66 out of 5 53 reviews
Online learning didn't work for my son but the college made no effort to be helpful. He could not thrive in that environment and they didn't care.
The online teachers do not care. The barely respond to emails and do not help students. There is no support for struggling students.
The education is advanced. The teachers do a great job of preparing student for the workforce. Community at the school is nonexistent.
I have had technical problems constantly and notice several of my classmates are going through the same thing. There is nothing more frustrating that not being able to do/turn in your work. I can't count the amount of times I have left in the middle of a lecture to go to the IT department,the times I have fallen behind in my work,struggled to keep up and had to turn things in late due to these issues. Besides that, all but one of my classes are okay. I am taking an English class where we learn nothing. Although the class is scheduled to be over and hour long,on most days we can leave after 20 min.of course,unless we're watching a movie.The community college is cheaper and better than that. The other classes I take are fine.
I originally went to Ranken after coming off of active duty in 2009. I was an evening school student the first time and had a good experience in my classes and learned alot. 10 years later in the fall of 2019 I started going as a day school full-time student. This time around has been a pretty horrible experience. I have had many issues with the program and the instructors and much more. Actually went and filed a complaint against one of the instructors and all that happened is that they made me sit in a room with 2 instructors... him being one of them and tell him why I filed a complaint on him and he just sat there and denied all of it and lied straight to my face. I am suppose to have 2 more semesters left in this program, but after this semester ends in May 2020 I will not return. Not exactly sure what changed so drastically in the 10 yrs I left there, but they definitely haven't been making improvements.
its a great community to be around. the staff is really nice. i love how they have several larger companies associated with them to help out the students.
My experience attending Ranken Technical College so far has been excellent. The staff is very helpful when you need help with something and the same goes for the students. There is not anything that I see needing to change at the college since it is already great.
HI, I am a high performance racing student at Ranken technical college. I was very excited to do my first semester at Ranken. the balance between class time and shop time is nice. my main complaint is the teacher I had fpr the first semester which I wont name because as of now he is being reviewed and might possibly get fired. he had a three month backlog in grades that he didn't put in until two weeks from the end of the semester. this took many classmates by supprise because many of us didn't know we needed accedemic help until it was too late. its not a bad school but be careful of the auto programs
It gives the ability to grow and learn and they will work with you when it comes to academics, finances, home life, etc
My experience at Ranken College is was very pleasant . I really enjoy going to my classes. The professors are very helpful and they really care about everyone. They make sure you understand what they are teaching. I look forward going to school every day. They let you know if your grades are slipping so you can get the help you need to keep your grads up.
Ranken is a great Technical College. One of the best in the country actually. The hire rate for graduation is extremely high, but this is not without a cost. The grading system is unbelievably high, and because of this, the graduation rate is quite low. It's sort of a "weed out the weak" sort of deal. The students who graduate are extremely successful and please the employers very much. They promote professionalism to an extremely high degree and enforce good moral practices.
Ranken has gone above and beyond to make sure I succeed. My Professors also help us find jobs in our field they believe would be a good fit for us.
Ranken Tech was a very good school. My experiencing there truly was hands on from day one all the way until I graduated. And to top it off I did get a job one month fresh out of college.
I have had a very good experience at Ranken Technical College. This college is able to provide the training I want so I can be successful. I am currently taking two different programs. The Ford ASSET program (associates) and BSAM (applied management - bachelor). The school has great teachers with ample experience in the industry. Great school.
Great job leads, placement, etc..
