*Consumer Comment: Strayer difficult to transfer credits
Specifically in the area of Computer Science, there is an accreditation organization called ABET, which is the trusted form of accreditation for all Engineering and Computer Science majors, and Strayer does not meet their accreditation standards. If you have Strayer credits, forget about transferring them to MIT or any other ABET-accredited university.
Not only in Corporate America, but also among professionals, Strayer is not respected either. You will be prohibited from entering professional engineering and computer science organizations such as NSBE, NSPE or many other organizations that people who work in Computer Science and Engineering fields use to network and get to know each other.
(*The same applies to all their other degree programs, including Business and Accounting.)
Bottomline: If you want your hard work to be respected, avoid schools without a guaranteed level of accreditation, such as Strayer, like a plague!
