I am halfway through my degree at Baker College and my program is completely online. My experience with Baker Online has in general been a good one. The courses are tough and fast paced. It takes much dedication to make it through these courses and to do well. What I will complain about however is that the professors seem to care more about a few misspelled words and grammatical errors than they do the quality of the content you've worked so hard to produce. Of course as college students, we must learn to be professional and that includes typing well. But these professors are so anal about a misspelled word its ridiculous. Its also quite embarrassing that they will call you out on your simple errors on the discussion boards for everyone to read and see. How degrading. Not only that, but to not even mention the great quality of the work you have sent in is very frustrating. Ive been called out for using "i" instead of "I", a simple error that sometimes i cant control if im using my phone to write my discussion board, however, that seems to be far more important to the professors than the work you submit. Its beyond ridiculous and they need to focus more on the content of our work. I feel like im in high school due to this. If the instructors were to focus on the more important things I believe Baker College Online would be much better. Instead they are overly consumed with making sure everything is APA formatted and there are no spelling errors that I doubt they even check to see what students are actually comprehending in their course. I wish this is something the college could change. But i strongly doubt this will happen. I will survive the next two years I have with this College and will never look back. Could be so much better if they werent so petty and humiliating to some of the students for minute errors. Due to this, i'd give it a 3 star rating tops!

You are strangely silent concerning what your degree will be once your "graduate" from Baker but I suspect any degree from an online "college" would be about as useful in obtaining a good job as a refrigerator in an igloo somewhere near the North Pole. As to your concern over proper spelling let it be said that being unable to speak, write and spell correctly in the English language speaks volumes to your abilities in whatever endeavors you wish to accomplish in life.

In other words, if you are so lazy you don't care to learn how to compose a proper sentence, no one will think your actual work product would be worth much, if anything. I suggest you stop wasting your money on this so-called "college" and find a job post-haste.

HORRIBLE

They are transitioning from quarter to semester. Credits received during quarter are now dropped to semester and therefore additional classes are now required to meet the requirement for graduation. Its a scam for more money. They have a high turnaround for advisors / career planners. Each person tells you something different. Once you are in this college you cannot get out. Creditable colleges do not accept Baker credits. As others posted, it is nearly impossible to get a job. I would not recommend writing Baker College on any resume. If they ask during an interview, then mention it but otherwise save yourself from misery. Worst experience ever.
