From a parent’s perspective, dealing with Administration at the University of West Georgia a nightmare. It’s in my opinion that the Administration office is very unprofessional and ran by students that are not able to make definitive decisions or provide definitive answerers. After trying vigorously to get a financial and academic matter resolved, I just completely gave up. I could never speak to an actually staff person to attempt to pay for my child’s education. If you miss the deadline by one day, they will drop your child from all classes. They refused to meet with me when I wanted to meet with an enrollment, or financial advisor. My only contact was another student that worked in the office whom only provided scripted answers, so the matter never got resolved. Even after writing a letter to the president to the academic affairs office, there was never a response. As a parent, I found that to be extremely disheartening. Based on my experience, I would not recommend University of West Georgia unless you are a parent that’s not involved.

Overall Rating

I have toured West Georgia, and I really enjoyed it. I really felt like they were working toward improving and becoming better. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the whole tour. I chose to attend the University of West Georgia because I felt like they were excited to have me there, and about growing and further improving their school. They also have many resources for students who needed help or support in any aspect of adjusting to college life.
