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
Steer Clear of this terrible school. Every bit on knowledge i have about being a MA is because i read the books. They lied and said my credits would transfer and the wont. I wasted time and money.. They ruined the college experience for me. Way over priced too!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hey July 29th doctorates degree 3 of them from this shady school. YOU are a teacher or board member writing this ridiculas review. My brother just graduated with a masters from UT one year prior to you and makes 45k a year. 75 k your a joke and a liar. I cannot believe this site allows con to continue about this crappy POS fly by night___ oh they are not fly by night been able to continue the con for at least 5 years I know of. You should be ashamed potentialy destroying young peoples potential for what? because you get blood money. July 29th grad with all the degrees from STC you are a plain out LIAR and calling you out period. Go into politics but stop ruining peoples lives someone may end theyeres because of what you do and GOD help you.
This was the 5th school I attended over the decade or so I studied for various degrees and certs. I atended the HVAC with the intensions of getting certified and starting a small business of my own. The ex- army recruiter lied to me about course material and commercial training. The board of directors lied about taking care of the problems that existed as so did the Deans(2) absolutly the worst training and classes I have ever paid for and it would have been cheaper to go to an actual college or community college. Some teachers"professors" as they liked to be called did not even have a 2 year community college background, off the street basically. When they do not have a "professor" to teach a class they will give you independant study LOL LOL that means for 20 dollars an hour for what the school will charge you to sit somewhere and read a manual or just go home, this is for the entire duration of this class 2 months. They are absurd and if you make any waves get ready to be punished go from an A to D no fs you will drop and they may not be able to bill federal student loans on your behalf. They commit FROG,try finding someone to take notice of what is going on with these people. Do not go here,go to a school where your credits count and are cheaper to get. Do not listen to "we are accredited" BS bs bs acredidation of central congo where they take all the course material this school offers. If you want to chance it for other courses do not say someone never tried to tell you,only when it is too late and they have your money or you have a 30k student loan to repay,it is when you realize it.. Yes I am very upset and have nothing good to say and feel completelly ripped off and wasted 95% of my time. Ask former teachers about them, they all share the same view(most). All of the teachers I had were fired or quit only after 9 mnths? even the dean was fired. Ask yourself a few questions after reading this novel is this true or not? whay would someone spend so much time typing this stupid essay? what would this person gain from this? teachers are required to fill out surveys like the one I am doing and give short praises about the school. I will continue periodicaly filling these out. If I get one person to actually take the time to search for a good school and save them from this misery and potential 30k student fee that could end any further schooling or destroy a future carrer it was worth every typed letter. SOMEONE with athority please investigate this place. this school has ruined many students and cost them millions at least the good old tax payers money FED student loans should be investigated I have stories to share to any FED person email me.
