Student & Graduate Reviews (62)
I am thankful the Career Point College, Tulsa Campus, has a program that helped me receive my high school diploma. I was unable to pass the math section on the GED (trig and calculus) and thought there was no hope of graduating. I heard from a friend about the diploma program and was able to graduate with the Penn Foster diploma and now have a better job. Great teachers in the classroom that helped me one-on-one everyday.
RUN!!!!!!! do not come here, a waste of your time. they lie and lie some more. go to hallmark, gaylan, anywhere but here. dont even think about being able to pin unless you get their green light which is so inorganized that only a few do before pinning so all your hard work is thrown away and your 31000 dollars
I would NOT recommend this school to anyone!!! If you have other options please seek them out, they are full of lies and deception. They promise you all this wonderful stuff when you first sign up then BOOM reality actually hits you. Their pass rates are crap, don't believe what they show you. There's a high teacher turn over rate, and they always blame it on the teacher and never administration. There are a FEW good teachers there but only a FEW!!! There's sooooooooo much more that I could say about this "school" they're Very unorganized, they don't communicate well AT ALL, oh and the credits you receive won't transfer anywhere else so if you decided in the middle of the term that the school is crap then you're just out of luck and out of $30,000. Please please please if you have another option to go to another school please do.
This school was probably the worst decision I have ever made! I strongly recommend going ANYWHERE else! They can't keep staff or administration personal longer that a month without firing them. The professor named Dr. Swanson is probably the worst human being alive! If a complaint is filed against her and and the possibility of being linked back to you watch out she will manipulate lie and con in an attempt to get you removed from the program (this happened to a friend of mine), and the director and assistant director are to ignorant to realize how horrible this woman is. It says something when other professors wish you luck with a feeling sorry for you tone when they find out she is your professor. They steal your money and leave you high and dry! This place is a joke! If I could give it negative stars I would!
Very unorganized. Administration doesn't get along. You go through 2 teachers in one semester. Highly unorganized study material. Don't use hardly of the books. Teachers aren't interactive. Highly recommend looking into other programs and this one last.
Bad bad bad and very dramatic. I feel like I'm back in High School. I would Not recommend this school to anyone. If you have the opportunity to go somewhere else do it! There is absolutely NO organization. The kids here are young and VERY immature. !!
The Paralegal associate degree was suppose to be a great program. It wasn't organized at all. I got sick and had to take a leave of absence but when I tried to come back there were no teachers to help me. They were cancelling the program but they lied. I now have to pay for money that they received for degree that they didn't let me finish. The sad part is that I got my first degree there in 1992 and graduated 2nd in my class. They have just wasted my time and money that I could be saving for my son in college just not this college. Most people who had negative comments were correct about the changes were constantly happening and for the better of the school or students. They don't pay good money so people leave.
Pay $30,000 and use 2 books for 5 classes. They are usually good about giving breaks, but only 10 minutes. You may be able to go urinate in 10 min but anything else hold it. Because if you take say 15 min. You get locked out until the next break. So you end up paying them 30k to tell you to hold it and lock u out? Newsflash I am paying you, not the other way around.
Update: still moving along. They've hired more instructors and I use that term loosely. I'm in one class that is basically a waste of time. It's a "filler" class. The other is being "taught" by an instructor that won't or can't put a lecture together. 100% self learning. I could do this at home. Not to mention we won't be getting the clinical hours required because they are trying to be sneaky by substituting lab for clinicals. About to be reported to the Texas workforce commission and the state Board of Nursing.
THIS SCHOOL IS SO BAD. THERE HAS BEEN I BELIEVE TWO LAWSUITS THAT HAVE HAPPENED WITHIN A MONTH. THE TEACHERS ARE PRETTY MUCH THERE JUST FOR A PAYCHECK. NO ONE EVER KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON BECAUSE THE POLICIES ARE ALWAYS CHANGING AND THE TEACHERS SEEM TO COME AND GO. THIS IS THE AUSTIN LOCATION, AND IS LOCATED IN A BAD AREA: YOU CAN TELL NOT ONLY BY THE AREA BUT ALSO BY THE STUDENTS. NECK TATTOOS..ETC... BUT I HEAR THAT THE SAN ANTONIO LOCATION IS THE SAME. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME COMING IN.. YOU ARE GOING TO BE OUT 30K AND BE VERY UNSATISFIED. I WOULDNT BE SURPRISED IF THIS LOCATION CLOSED. IF I COULD RE-DO I WOULD GO FOR MY RN AND NOT WASTE A YEAR OF MY LIFE. ALL THE GOOD TEACHERS THAT WERE THERE HAVE ALL LEFT BECAUSE THEY COULDNT STAND IT THERE EITHER. NOW ALL THATS LEFT ARE TEACHERS THAT HAVE NO KIND OF EXPERIENCE AND DONT EVEN KNOW HOW TO TEACH. THE WHOLE PROGRAM IS BASED ON PASSING THE "ATI" BUT YOU HAVE TO DO THAT ON YOUR OWN TIME, BESIDES ALL THE HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS THAT YOU TURN IN THAT ONLY GET COMPLETION GRADES. THE REASON THAT THEy ARE NCLEX PASSING RATE IS SO HIGH IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO GET A GREEN LIGHT TO TAKE THE EXAM AND MAYBE 1 OUT OF 5 WILL ONLY GET THAT LIGHT. SO GOOD LUCK IF YOU DECIDE TO GIVE THIS PLACE A CHANCE.
