This school is very horrible they are full of lies they tell you that your credits are transferable they tell you that your absences may be excused if you have the right paperwork they tell you that they paid for some of your testing and everything comes with the school wants financial aid paid but they're full of lies I attend school for 6 months between the six months I have heard nothing from them the teachers and none of the classes I took my own time and studied the books myself they actually had one or two good teachers that I actually did catch something off of but they fired them to just come in and out of that school every week There's a new teacher new rule a friend of mine's daughter was on the verge of death and they did not excuse her absence they tried to fill her they would not let me take a leave when I was having a domestic violence situation they also don't help you if you're not in Spanish it sounds really bad but it's true nothing is accredited from the school so don't waste your time or your money the program cost too much money you really never use the book and they teach you what they want to teach you not what you need to know this school is full of s*** I've started with it okay but then after a while I see what others were talking about $34,000 for ma program when they can't even find you a good job all the teachers walk around speaking Spanish all day and dress like whores with tight clothes on they're full of it and I think it's some fraud going on at the school because they told me if I was to leave their school that they were going to charge me for eighteen months that I have not attended which I thought was stupid how could you guys do that but that's what they told me in the financial aid office and that's cool keep up drama you will be fighting and arguing and in the Dean's office every day about some he said she said they have their favorites I left the school in 2016 and I return to Valencia Community College which is way better more time but way better I'm actually learning and I would not recommend this school to anyone they sell you a good picture but once you start your done for

Degree: Ultrasound Technician
Graduation Year: 2016

Listen to everything people are saying. Its all true. This school is a complete joke. There is no organization, and no care for the students. The staff changes every semester and no one ever knows what is going on. I wish I had listened to what people told me about this school before I started. Its the worst school I've ever been to.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is a joke... You have the staff team that's dresses like whores. Not all, but some. They dress as if they were going to the club. Most of instructors can't even speak English at all. You have instructors who quit every week. And their replacement are worst. Racist school. Seems as if this school is only concern about the Spanish students. They cater more them . This school loves money .. They could care less about the students.

The worst school ever! Way over priced and they could care less about your education. They tell you if you have a problem they will fix it. Except they tell you one thing and then side with the teacher. Even when she/he is unethical and unprofessional.

Degree: Health Information/Medical Records Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2016

I'm in my 4th semester of Health Information Management. Every school in Ft Myers is expensive.. I did the research. I chose this college because The American Health Information Management Association recommended this school for the program and is recognized and is an accredited program for AHIMA. To keep the expenses down I was able to receive 2 grants. When I graduate my loans will be down to 15,000, so I don't understand why people are paying over 30,000 if you keep a 4.0 grade point and apply for scholarships and do the community outreach grant you can make your loans and college costs more affordable. The school and staff seem to be more stable now that Southern Tech took over. Most of the teachers I have had have some type of work experience in the HIM program so that is a plus.

Degree: Medical Office Assistant/Specialist
Graduation Year: 2015

I DO NOT recommend this school to anyone. It is a waste of time and money I have to pay back all this money and I wasted 18 months of my life and only needed 6months of what I was really attending there for which was Medical billing and coding. Most of the time you are teaching yourself and there were only 3 teachers that really cared about the students. I wish I would have not attended this school. CORP is a joke they care NOTHING about the students and what they are learning they put people in positions that should not be there. They put someone that had just graduated as a teachers and made him the head of dept. and he didn't know ANYTHING about teaching or how to even do anything. I really feel this school should be shut down. My externship I like where I went but it was not in the field what I attended the school which all of my fellow student all complained about the same thing. Take my advice and DO NOT go to STC run and don't look back. The people in financial aid are crocked as heck they will not give you the money owned to you but run you down to pay them.

Degree: Medical Office Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoyed going here until the teachers started dropping like flies. We were two weeks into a course when one of our teachers was fired and we were left primarily on our own. One of the teachers did her best to help us but she had a class of her own to attend to. Then my extern was the worst, I ended up at two different places and neither of them taught me what was on our required learning sheet. When I complained I was told that if they wanted me to color with a crayon the whole time to do it that at least I get my hours. That is the moment I felt disappointed with the school the most. I thought the purpose of the extern was for some experience. I did like all but one of my professors though. The changing of office staff is also a problem as some of them said they cared but when it came down to it they didn't. I feel that they should spend more time on the material needed to get out in the field and less time on the material not as important. I was a straight A and B student so I am not a disgruntled student. I am disappointed that they couldn't find time to send at least a sympathy card when my brother passed recently. I started out doing Medical Billing and Coding which half way through the program was changed to Medical Office administrator. Can't find a job there so finishing the MA program hoping for better luck.
