Baker College Complaint - Don't Waste your money on Baker College
AUBURN HILLS, MICHIGAN -- I have attended Baker College of Auburn Hills for almost 5 years, just trying to obtain my Bachelors degree. I do have to say that they've had some amazing instructors and I wish them the best. However, Baker College is a scam and a joke. They advertise affordable tuition and classes that fit the working adults schedule. HA!!! Those are lies. The financial aid advisors are uneducated about student problems. They are improperly trained and the head of the department condones this! When it comes to class availability that doesn't happen. I had 5 classes left including and internship and they weren't offering them at all except during fall quarter when they offered all 5 on the same night. I was told that I should have scheduled better and there was nothing they would do. I spoke to the Dean and he told me there were 3500 other students they were worried about and I was not one of them.
I registered a complaint with the BBB and Baker told them there was nothing they could do for me. I should have taken the classes when they were offered. It's hard to take 5 classes in one night! I was told I would have to travel to a different campus that was 45 minutes away if I wanted to graduate. I was finally able to get 2 of my classes that I need after much stress and frustration. I was recently sick with the flu and could not make it to the class. The assignment was stated in the sylabus as worth 10 points. I figured that it wouldn't hurt my grade too much to miss it or hopefully should would work with me on doing something to make it up. She emailed me 12hours after I sent the email and 2 hours after the class started saying that the assignment was worth 100 points and not 10. It was going to drop my grade significantly and that I should be advised. I will say that this class was an independent study because no one else, at this time, was able to take this class. This school dishes out threats, false advertisments, and poorly trained staff.
Please beware that you will not get a good education here. You will be too busy trying to get what you're paying for!
