Harris School of Business Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (52)
Please don't go to this school I attended the one in Dover Delaware and they make you think there's a lot jobs offers they have for the students. But this is not true they never got me an interview no where, all the interviews I had I achieved them on my own. You are not prepared for the Coding exam they discourage you for taking the five hour test. There are no jobs available to you. Some students drop out because they see the future not promising a career as a Health Claims Specialist. The course cost $18,000 for Health Claims specialist please take my advice go to Del Tech. you will be more successful there.
I attended the Wilmington, DE campus, and I graduated in 2013. I had tremendous support; the staff treated me like family. My teachers really helped me to retain all the information and skills that I needed to become a successful Dental Assistant. My extern site I chose was at a dental office in Hampton, VA. The dentist I worked for ended up hiring me after I completed my externship. I really enjoyed the hands on experiences both in class and in the dental office. I greatly appreciate the teachers and staff that pushed me to reach my full potential and wouldnt let me quit. (Mrs. Jones, Ms. Judy, Doc. Bev, Ms. Sue, Ms. Crystal and Ms. Keicha) Thank you all for everything, I would not be where I am today without you.
I absolutely love the school not only did I finish school with all A' s. I got my certification before I even went to extern!! I enjoyed all of the staff they are awesome i learned some very good skills while i was there. If you really want to change your career I recommend going to Harris they treat you like family. If u want to be productive you have to want it you have to strive for the best. Harris school of business was a awesome choice I made and I wouldn't change it if I could.....
I am still looking for work!!!! I graduated in 2016, was told you'll get this job--just show up. Well I did, went in early, stayed late and the girl told me that the doctor never hires a student from HARRIS only uses them to file and do filing. When I called to switch sites I was told no. I spent 16k to learn to file. I am still at my previous job (cashier). They never call you back and all the good teachers are gone!!!!!!! This place is a joke and I am so very sorry I went to them. The girls on the westside was right--this place is a joke and only want your money. From what I hear, the teachers they have now are not real teachers, not one of them are certified or experienced. DON'T GO HERE!!! THEY ONLY WANT TO MAKE YOU PAY A LARGE STUDENT BILL AND LAUGH AT YOU BEHIND CLOSE DOORS.
Run!!!! These people are preditors. They prey on the poor and they will lie to you deceive you, tell you that are YOUR HARRIS family and as soon as they get ALL your money-no HELP or return calls, especially that ghetto b they have in career services. The school is so ghetto-from admission to the loud mouth director and the smart mouth short miserable person. I was told by a potentuial employer I should've went to another school--they WONT hire a Harris graduate--not the lie I was told. DO NOT GO HERE---YOU ARE BETTER GOING TO DEL TECH OR SOME OTHER SCHOOL BUT NOT THIS SCHOOL--THEY ARE CROOKS and you will be their sucker!!!!!!
I was unsure of attending any school at my age. I knew I had done well in school 30 yrs ago. I decided to enroll here at Harris in Wilmington and I have been pleasantly surprised at the campus and dedication of all the staff. From the Dean, Sue Bitters to Ms. Crystal to all the dedicated First Rate teachers. I am a living testament to life begins after 50. Don't let your age stop you. You can do it . All the staff are willing to help you at any time. I felt like a priority. Like we are family. They make every little success as a student a big deal as well as the big successes. They cheer you on every step of the way. And when it's time to spread your wings and fly away a success you know they will always be there
Horrible Horrible Horrible. They promise you the world and never deliver. Supplies are almost non existent. Students are full of drama and teachers spend their time talking about their personal life. Worst experience ever. Don't waste your time and money. Students cheat and still pass their classes.
This company uses students to funnel federal funds straight into your pockets. If you have the appropriate books for your classes, which they usually don't, you will absolutely not be able to code correctly. If you get a job through them you will only be making $10 an hour as a biller. Problem is you don't need a certificate to be a biller. People do not pass the ICD10 coding cert after attending this school. The cert you do get means nothing because its just a paper you are given from the school. Please pay careful attention to student reviews before going to this school for medical coding and billing. The Teachers are not certified teachers and they are forced to teach things that they did not study. And if they can't reach you they will say it is a self taught class. $19,000 is a lot to pay for a self taught class. You can teach yourself at home for about $2,000, which would include purchasing the books and taking the cert test.
I attended the campus in Danbury, CT this summer for CNA. Right from the start I made it clear I wanted my certification as quickly as possible so I could work this summer. It is only a 3 week program, 2 weeks in class and the third week in clinical. I had 2 different instructors each week because of their error in scheduling (my scheduled instructor was in the middle of teaching another CNA class, so we had a "substitute" for a 3rd of the program without any notice beforehand!!!). Thankfully my one instructor was phenomenal, but the substitute was honestly lazy and didn't seem to want to teach. This is only part of my problem. Signing up for the program, my mother and I set up a weekly payment , and planned to have the program completely paid off by the time of completion. Despite filling out these payment forms and sitting with the director,apparently SHE put the wrong date or something into the computer so the whole time, our payments weren't going through. NO ONE TOLD US OF THIS. The program has the be at least 60% paid in order to sit for the state test... We thought everything was paid, but I couldn't register, and only then did they admit they made the mistake and made it seem like not a "big deal"! After sorting it out, they let me sit for the earliest test date. I passed with a nearly perfect score and was told my certification would be mailed within 5 business days. I waited about 7 business days before calling to ask about the hold up... Apparently, because I hadn't paid for the program in full yet, they were holding my diploma and certification. This was never verbally said. Even in the big packet they gave, it only says "In addition, the School can discontinue a student's enrollment status, not issue grades, and deny requests for transcripts should a student not meet all of his/her financial and institutional obligations." That doesn't say they will literally HOLD my certificate after passing the exam, especially when I am in the process of paying them!!! After arguing on the phone, we paid in full, which we would have done from the start if we knew this would happen, and they said they were putting it through. Fast-forward to now, over a week later and I only have my diploma, I'm still not on the CT State Nurse Aide Registry and Prometric (the testing site Harris uses) says my application is incomplete....!?!?!?! Just called, apparently they received an influx of applications and mine somehow got shoved aside, and they NOW see that I completed the payment and are changing my application status. I still have to wait 48 hours to be on the nurse aide registry and 5-7 business days to receive my certification. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS that I have to literally call for them to do their job. GO ANYWHERE ELSE BUT HERE BECAUSE THEY CAN'T DO ANYTHING.
I would not recommend this school at all, it is a waste of time and money. The school has no supplies, no working scales or appliances. All they worry about is getting there money. Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT attend this school. I wish i did not waste my money on this school at all.
