Degree: Allied Health and Medical Assisting Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

This place is horrible the staff are not on the same page, the classroom looks nice at first. but it is a joke I should have listened, they will lie to you to get what they want their staff are jokes and the school looks like it is just a rented out building they teach yea but getting a job from here is laughable. DO NOT GO HERE there are better ways to waste your money.

Degree: Dental Assisting/Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is horrible. I would never recommend this poor excuse for a "college" to anyone. American Institute in Toms River has an uneducated, uninformed, rude, condescending staff. The "administrators" and "directors" are laughable. The students are robbed of their money, time, and education. You are treated like a child, reprimanded for absurd things, written up if you have an opinion, and forced to sit in 2-3 hour long seminars so that local banks can promote themselves. The students are seen with only dollar signs over their heads. There are also constant fights between students. Many fights become physical and I felt very unsafe... especially when police officers surround the building on a monthly basis.

Degree: Ultrasound Technician
Graduation Year: 2016

I am a current Diagnostic Medical Sonography Student and enjoy the school and the program thoroughly. I do believe they have the resources to help you achieve your goal of becoming a registered DMS. The instructors are knowledgeable and care about your success. I will post another review after I complete the program in December of 2016. As of now, it's been great and I have learned a lot in a short amount of time. Be advised that this program is for those who have already received a Bachelor's degree and are able to read their texts/online journals on their own, complete assignments online, and learn through online videos and self-teaching at times. Overall, I am satisfied with the program and believe I will do very well upon completion.

Degree: Computer Networking
Graduation Year: 2015

Worst school ever they tell you lies. They lies to everybody they create a world of illusion you think you going to get a job as soon as you finish school but no. I did the cons program i finished on November 2015 and still no job. i have try to get in contact with the career service department and they just tell me to apply to job that i already have apply. I wouldn't recommend this school to nobody i would recommend Lincoln Tech is 100% better than this shit.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2010

THE BOOKS WERE OUTDATED WE KEPT FAILING TEST. WE HAD TO FIGHT FOR UPDATED BOOKS IN ORDER TO PASS OUR TEST. THEY TOLD ME IT WAS A HIGH DEMAND IN MEDICAL CODING AND BILLING.

ITS A LIE YOU HAVE TO HAVE A LEAST 1-2 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN THAT AREA. ITS NOW 2012 AND STILL NO JOB. THEY WOULDNT RETURN MY CALL NOR TALK TO ME. THEY DID MY RESUME AND LIED. I GRADUATED IN NOV.2010 STILL NOT WORKING IT JUST WASTED MY TIME.

I DONT KNOW WHY WE HAVE TO REPAID A DEBT WHEN THEY ARE AT FAULT. WE SHOULD NOT NOT HAVE TO PAID ANYTHING.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding

I was in a car accident that has affected my dominate arm. (I am left handed.) As a result I was asked to make up 6 exams, which I did. Ten points were deleted from all of my exams plus an additional 15% were deducted because I was not in class. I was told I had passed. My ending GPA 1.96.

I initally went to the school for sonography and was told I would fail the practical part of the course because my pictures were not clear enough. The whole time I did this with my right hand when again I am left handed.

Alls I have to say is I am more than UNHAPPY with my experiences here.... I went for a month and stopped going that's how horrible it was... and I know that sounds bad on my part but let me explain why... When I graduated high school I was not sure that college was for me due to a severe case of learning disabilities since 7th grade so I figured maybe a trade school would be best because it would be studying one specific thing instead of a bunch of things. At admissions they were so helpful clearly to get my money.

I told them RIGHT OFF THE BAT about my learning disability and they said they would be helpful, tutor,class's wouldn't be to fast pace blah blah blah....blah blah, oh and the blah blah is what I should have heard instead of what they actually told me.

Once I was done with the first part I failed it, there idea of tutoring was me coming in an hour early, the "tutor" which was one of the head people for one of the class's (don't wanna say who because names could get me in trouble with the law) her being 20 minutes late, and her idea of tutoring was "read over your flash cards"... "okay time for class" What a JOKE she is and that was, than her idea of helping me take a quiz was her literally sitting next to me giving me the answers... which by the way it had to be on one of the cameras so if anyone knows how to get her in trouble for it let me know :) THIS SCHOOL IS A JOKE and I'm truly sorry to the people who had to suffer similar things I did.
