Clayton State does not even deserve one star from me. This school is ALL about taking your money and inconveniencing you at any cost just to get it. From the police officers that leave annoying citations on your car (parking decals are included in tuition. Even if you dont own a vehicle you pay for a decal, so WHAT are you patrolling for??) to the financial aid department that will randomly place holds on your account during the first week of classes so that your whole schedule will be dropped and you will incur a $100 registration fee due to their poor time management skills with your trusted documents. My financial aid for the Spring had been finalized and processed 6 MONTHS prior to first week of classes. Suddenly, on the first week, Clayton State decides to put a hold on my account asking for transcripts from years ago. I submit them personally, and they tell me it takes 3-5 business days just to run them through a scanner. Consequently, I owe $5,847 in full within the next 24 hours or I will be forced to put my career on hold until May. Absolutely ridiculous. Do NOT give this school your money. They have no sense of urgency or compassion for their students to succeed expectations.

School is clean, safe, and the classes are challenging with lots of options. Psychology and Music sections are huge and world-class. I'm in the computer science program, and the department is awesome, filled with dedicated professors and lots of hands-on coursework. Only downside I know of? Parking is a pain to find. A side note: I've heard complaints about the majority minority population and my response is, seriously people? Don't you know the demographics of Clayton County? All minority/ majority black. It's only natural the college population would reflect this. Most of us live near the campus.

Man I've been trying to get back into this school for 5-6 years now, finally had my debts out of default and then they got me good, I am still trying to get back in because once you owe this school money, you can't go anywhere else until all of your debts are paid.

I have been here since 2012 and plan to graduate in December 2016. I have a good GPA and I am a non-traditional student. My experience here has been a good one. As long as you are proactive with your financial aid and do your work, things go smoothly. Most people who complain on campus have bad grades, rarely show up for class, and are usually bitter because they are irresponsible. The location of the campus is less than desirable, especially if you are a native Clayton County resident who fled to avoid the area, BUT the campus is beautiful and in a convenient location for people in Metro-Atlanta. The demographic is interesting with people from all over Georgia, different ages, and different backgrounds...that keeps the classes and viewpoints interesting. The crime rate around campus is something of concern and the parking is crap but the professors, scenic campus, and degree options make Clayton State a good choice, in my opinion.

The Information Technology department at Clayton State University is very negative towards their students. The only thing this department wants is money, nothing else. The department doesn’t care if their students are successful. A former CSU IT instructor informed me that most students don’t complete their IT bachelor’s degree at this college because the department likes to hold their students back. Professor Ken Nguyen is an IT instructor at this college who likes to discriminate and belittle minority students. He lectures only to his white students and ignores his minority students like they don’t exist. I find it very disappointing that a large amount of students have to withdraw from his classes every semester. He only wants to bolster his ego by showing how little the students know and how much he knows instead of trying to make sure the students learn the material. He doesn't give the student's any hope of success in his class. He is part of the reason why this department is not doing well at the moment.

The school is exceptionally boring. The best things about this school is the college of business which includes accounting,supply chain management,business management,finances etc. That department has some great professors especially in the supply chain area. NOT ALL of them are good. I have stayed in Clayton Station and the apartments aren't bad although you can hear people having sex which is quite annoying if you're a light sleeper like me. But other than that it's unsafe for students. They have been robbed, sexually assaulted, and shootings have happened. Recently back in November 2015 a young man was shot on campus in the Clayton station apartments........that young man died. I really think campus police are letting things like this happen to keep their jobs. Pros:Nice gym some professors really care lakes on campus Campus is pretty clean in appearance Cafeteria food is okay. Cons:No football team No track no stadium lots of older people school is not well-known. You might get shot. Parking is terrible during the spring and fall. Train runs through campus and wakes you up at night. FRATS WITH NO FRAT HOUSES. It's in Clayton county. Too expensive! You might as well go to Georgia state for what you're paying here. You are better off going to Georgia state for what they charge in terms of tuition and you'll have more fun. The Information Technology degree program sucks! The school is so small that some classes are offered only once a year. During the summer some WebBSIT classes aren't offered because enough people don't register the year before. I registered for a WebBSIT class and got taken out of it which set me back. It was highly infuriating. Also I had a group project in a class and failed it because my group did not do anything which I thought was very inconsiderate of the professor. Please do not pic IT or Computer Science as a major here. Read the other review about the IT program and you will see what I am talking about. PLEASE DO NOT BECOME A VICTIM OF THIS SCHOOL! MY ADVISOR PUT ME IN A CLASS TO HELP ME OUT. THAT CLASS WAS 1 I NEEDED TO GRADUATE. BUT I GOT TAKEN OUT OF IT BECAUSE I ASKED THE CHAIR OF CIMS ABOUT AN INTERNSHIP. AND SINCE I DID NOT HAVE THE PREREQUSITES HE TOOK ME OUT. BUT YET I HAVE BEEN IN CLASSES I DID NOT MET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR. THIS MEANS SOMEBODY DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING. DO NOT DO THE CIMS PROGRAM. Look at my default picture and you will what I am talking about. Another thing DON'T do a degree in INTEGRATIVE STUDIES. It is a setup for failure. I wrote this extravagantly long review because I would hate for what happened to me happen to prospective students. Lastly, the housing department does not genuinely care about students. They look at students as cash cows.

The location is great its near everything , great vibes and all. The Housing department is unorganized because they give different information each time you call and ask about something. They also don't update the housing website so you might miss something important if you are not persistent with them. Financial aid is also lacking in communication with the students when it comes to their financial status. I personally registered for classes based on a reward letter they sent then 2 days before the deadline for financial things to be situated they told me the award letter I made decisions on wasn't updated. So I had to sit out a semester because they sent me the wrong award letter . Each department should just be on top of their game because this is the most horrific experience in my life.
