Rider University Reviews
Overall experience for my son's education was very good. But Financial Aid and Bursar's office is another story. They take forever to refund financial aid. You have to request it, it's not automatic. Then they cut you a paper check, no direct deposit. I requested the check be mailed. Weeks went by (they say it takes 10-14 business days (!). So when that time was up I contacted them and they informed me it's in the cashier's office! Also he has been tutoring for over a month and has yet to collect a paycheck. Their excuse: "it didn't get processed". They also didn't automatically apply his Rider Advantage scholarship, I had to chase them for that too. They really need to improve the way the department is run.
Rider University has been great. In my short three years here I have gained so much. I gained best friends, close peers, professionalism, and confidence. I am currently pursuing an education degree, and I love everything about this major. In my education classes I have gained great opportunities, such as teaches lessons and gaining confidence in the classroom. I love being a Rider student. Go Broncs!
I loved when I was at Rider University for my undergrad. I plan on going back soon for my teaching certificate and my Masters in teaching. The campus is beautiful and so easy to learn how to get around. Luckily, all the classroom buildings are right near each other, making it easy to get from building to another. Most of the teachers are great, I had an easier time at Brookdale Community College finding great teachers than I did at Rider. There are some great teachers with good reviews and there are bad teachers with bad reviews that I recommend staying away from. ratemyprofessor.com was how I chose what classes I was going to take. I highly recommend using this website. The school is financially doing poorly, but there is still a very high number of students that enroll every year. Being it is a private school, the tuition is extremely high. I recommend going to a community college first and transferring in to get more scholarship money. Making it a cheaper way to get a degree.
