    I have been working at Argosy University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Loved the staff
    -Very clean campus
    -Did I mention staff
    -Good amount of training

    Cons

    -Sometimes unrealistic expectations
    -Financial aid office members are often time very rude and do not help students at initial contact

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider how the financial aid office connects with students early on. Do not leave financial questions to the admissions team. Specific financial questions should be referred to the financial advisors, this is to include initial contact. Admissions advisors should not be a part of any of the financial process such as telling students how to get started with their financial aid process. This should all be handled by the finance department as this is suppose to be what they are experts at and paid to do.
