Degree: HVAC
Graduation Year: 2011

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.

Degree: Heating, Air Conditioning, Ventilation and Refrigeration Maintenance Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2015

This school provides inadequate education for their students, the teachers are ill equiped, ill informed, and uneducated for the course requirements. The teachers are petty, and not willing to give out deserving grades even after a grade review! Not sure of the certification status of this private school, but Southern Technical College should be in 'Teach-Out'; like their obliged counterparts! Thank you so incredibly much for listening!

Degree: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

This is not to be disgruntle so curb yourself before you jump to conclusions. the majority of the teachers in this school want what is best for the students and do their best at times. unfortunately the administration of the school is very lacking. the buck is passed along so much that it has dirt on it from years ago. if you have additional financial aid and you want it they would prefer to tell you what ever you want to hear instead of releasing it to you in a timely manner they will continue to lie to you and say it is on its way yet will not let you know what is holding it up from being released.. in addition the employees are so scared of getting fired that if you ask a question about the corporate office it is like a grenade hit the floor and everyone ducks or runs for cover. This school is here to make a profit and if it is able to get into your wallet then you did not do enough research or just jumped at whatever came your way like I did. do I regret coming to this school no, I met many great people but the cost to benefit ratio is way off.

Graduation Year: 13

Everyone, please read this before you make your decision. When i went to sign up i felt like i made the best decision of my life. I was excited and ready to start. It was hurry, hurry, hurry to get you excited and feel good about selecting this school. Semester after semester, instructors were dropping left and right. Went through multiple academic advisers and again many instructors. Since southern tech college took over they're after one thing and that's your wallet. $30,000 in debt and no jobs lined up before i graduated like they said they would. Your just a number and this place is worse then a dealership. Avoid any (for profit) schools like this one, you'll have crazy loans and no way to pay them. They are fake to your face too get you in and then everyone acts like they don't know you. Again, AVOID PROFIT SCHOOLS LIKE THIS ONE. You can get a degree for a quarter of the cost than this school.

Degree: Medical Insurance Specialist/Medical Biller
Graduation Year: 1800

This clown college. What a JOKE. Waste of time and rob you blind. Teachers seem like they were hired off the street. The financial aid is like a bunch of robots that have their head so far up their ass they couldn't even tell you what day it is. If I were you reading this right now I would keep looking a community college would be a much better and reasonable option. -STC dropout and I could have made a better decision.

Degree: Criminal Justice/Safety Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The PC campus is run by a bunch of egotistical, unqualified, money grabbers. The instructors are mostly unqualified. Not sure why ACICS or DOE doesn't shut them down. Ever since STC took over it has gone down. Campus Director is a liar and doesn't care about students. Save your money.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 13

This school only cares about one thing MONEY!!!!!! They lie to you to get you in the door then its all over from there. Went through teachers left and right. Some weren't qualified for the position. People do your homework, this school talks a big game but it's all a fake. Don't fall for it like I did, $30in debt and other schools are a quarter of the cost.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2011

This school might sound great and act great, but in reality they are money hungry hounds. I was told after completing school for my AS in Medical Assisting that they would help all they could to try and find jobs and help with job placement..did any of that happen. NOPE. After graduation, you are on your own. The teachers were the best part, I cant say anything bad about them..well okay maybe one thing, they (the Sanford location) goes through teachers like water, not even joking. Its your call on where you want to go and what you want to do with the rest of your life, but im just letting you know my experience. Here I am 3 years later, NOT in my field of study (many places didn't even know the name of the college) and drowning in student loan debt. sorry but $36,000 was NOT worth it ..had I known ..

Degree: Medical/Clinical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2013

This was the first time I had ever put myself in a degree program. I did not realize that they were a "for profit" college. During the initial interview, they danced around the fact that they were a for profit institution. It was very confusing, not only to me, but to quite a few other students. The faculty were great and they were able to give more of a "one on one" experience with their classes. I just didn't agree with the $30,000 price tag with 18 months of college for an associates of science degree. When looking into colleges, please take the time to look into whether the college you choose is for profit, or not for profit. It will greatly be to your advantage.
