What Students Are Saying

Perfect school for working Adults. It offers blended classes and online classes for individuals who work full time. Very flexible with working schedule.
Josefina from Porterville, CA
Brandman University was one of the best educational choices I have made. They make sure to work with you and your personal needs so that you can still receive a quality education with a busy lifestyle. I always feel challenged and that I am learning more every term.
Brittnee from Nipomo, CA
Brandman University is the adult working person's institution for furthering their education. Flexible class option for online or blended formats as well as short term allowing for flexibility in the professional area of one's life. Brandman University is committed to a quality education for returning adults and full time working individuals.
Sarah from Fairfield, CA
Brandman University is great for the working person that need a set school schedule. Do you work that 9-5 job and can't go to college well classes start at 5:30. All the teachers that I have had are knowledgeable and very helpful with all your needs, they want you to get what you are learning!
Lucas from Modesto, CA
Brandman is an online school that has dedicated its curriculum and class structure to the busy or working individual. Classes are online and 95% of the work includes reading, essays, forum writing, or team exercises; only once have I take a multiple choice exam. I feel like Brandman University is challenging in the sense that we have to write so much, but this encourages the student to be creative and think beyond what is simply taught in lectures or in the readings.

Jessica from Summerland, CA
Brandman caters to the needs of working adults, making a higher eduation attainable for everyone. The programs offered place a lot of demand on students but bring forth a sense of great accomplishment at the end of the day. I enjoyed the option to learn in-person and online because it allowed me (and others) to get through the program in good time.
Cody from Newport Beach, CA
I love the way this school offers on ground courses as well as online. I also love the way this school has classes starting every 2 months. The staff was very friendly and more than willing to help me out with everything.
Lynne from Fontana, CA
Brandman is great for students who work and have families outside of school. They work one on one with you to create individual educational plans and guide you to success. They also provide an academic coach to meet with each student to check up on them, help with transistioning into the college, and provide assistance to keeping you on track of your educational plan.
Markie from Vacaville, CA
This school is very committed to helping the students succeed. They offer plenty of resources to help you along the way such as writing center and tutoring. At Brandman I have an academic adviser who is here to help me throughout my degree time with things such as putting together my Education Plan and registering for classes.
