Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2013

This is the WORST school. Don't waste your money. After being in the hospital for a week my instructors were more than difficult to get ahold of when I tried to get all caught up. They are the reasons I left. Now, every time I try and call because I did have student loans no one can return a phone call. If you ask me, they should just take care of them for me since it was THEIR fault. I'm tired of trying to figure this out (since they are ruining my credit and don't seem to care about that at all either) when no one cares enough to even return a phone call. DO NOT attend Charter for anything!!!!!

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2015

I recently called my campus asking for tutoring which has been promised to me since the day I signed up. The man that answered simply told me there is NO tutoring available for any of the classes in their Bachelor program. Not even for general education classes. PLEASE stop advertising that you provide tutoring. Its misleading and immoral to do so. I am earning my bachelors degree off of youtube and google while you guys collect my money. I'm rarely a disgruntled person and I really hate leaving bad reviews but you guys need to be more honest.

Degree: Paralegal
Graduation Year: 2016

The Paralegal program is a joke! I graduated with a 4.0 and felt so good about that! I got a job in my field (not with help from school) but through people I knew. That job lasted one month because what I "learned" during school did not prepare me for the real world position! What I spent $20,000 for I could have learned by checking out books from the library or watching online videos. Of all the instructors I had, only one seemed to know what she was talking about and was actively engaged in our classes. I would urge everyone interested in this college to look at all options available. Charters representatives are very good at making you think they offer the best solution for you, but in my opinion, they are nothing but glorified sales people. If you decide to attend, double and triple check your financing information. On the phone I was told my total loan would be $11,500; when it was all said and done, it was over $20,000! They have not only the federal loans, but also UNISA which is private through them. Charter college is a scam college!!!

Degree: Accounting and Business/Management
Graduation Year: 2013

Poor education and the "degree" is a complete joke. Over 50K in debt and my degree is completely worthless. This school is money hungry and will tell you want you want to hear to get you to sign their papers. Save your money and go to a real school..

Degree: Dental Assisting/Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

A complete money scam. It's a waste of money and time. I have a 4.0 and still didn't come out with the education or job I desired and worked so hard for. Teachers and curriculum is scattered and unorganized. Rda papers were sent under the wrong year, CPR cards were lost and the clinic was unorganized and unprofessional.

Don't even consider this place. NOT All they want is money. Lots of promises.. don't get seduced. The worst regret of my life. No one wants to hire me with that worthless diploma. Its not only me. Other students as well. I dont know what to do now.

Degree: Allied Health and Medical Assisting Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

I wanted to say I am sorry some of you had bad experiences but I want to share a few things. I am currently enrolled in Charter and will have my MA certificate in November. I have also been to regular college and attended similar classes. BY FAR Charter is better. Here is what I see, I have seen a lot of students drop out. There were various reasons maybe too much work, reading, not enough class time. I've said it in other reviews but the programs offered are all accelerated. I spend 2 days a week in class for 4 1/2 hours, that is just about as typical of any other college out there. I spend a minimum of 4-5 hours 6 days a week working on the school work. I knew going into this I had to stay focused and disciplined. Heck no it's no picnic in the park! It's expensive but I just found out that the local college here in my area that offers the same type MA program only "registers" their students to go in the field. Charter "certifies" the students. This means Charter students can do much more in the field when the go out for their externship then the registered, college MAs. They do throw a lot of of stuff at you every week. Organize yourself and set time aside at least 5-6 days a week working and studying on school. For those students that have never stepped foot in the medical field it will be harder. Speaking of work, you will learn more in the field when you get a job as an MA than in a classroom. It's like that in almost all specialty careers. This is a fantastic program! The teachers are always willing to help you. They answer emails quickly, especially over the weekend. If you really want to be an MA this is where to go to get your certificate. I admit that there are a few things that I don't like at the school, but I am so focused on graduating that I don't even think about it that much.

Degree: Paralegal
Graduation Year: 2011

Started the paralegal program at Charter College. The instructors were almost completely incompetent in their teaching. I was unaware at the time that the campus had just began the paralegal program and were looking for bodies to push through. Upon my externship the lawyer told me that everything that I had learned was a joke and that I was ill prepared to work in the legal field. Charter College was an expensive waste of time. Over $40,000 down the drain. I horribly regret ever going there and will strongly discourage anyone from attending. It's such a scam.
