Southern Technical College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (60)
I recently graduated from Southern Technical College. I personally had a great experience at thsi school and not only did they give me a great education and I currently have an Associates Degree, but I was able to enroll at Mountain State and was able to transfer all of my credits toward a bachelors degree.
I know that there are alot of schools out there that don't live up to the hype, but STC is legit - they delivered on everything that they promise and more. I getting my bachelors degree and I have a great job!
I had no idea there was a different kind of school besides lecturing all day, studying all night, and writing tons of notes in hopes of passing a class. Here, after they lecture about phlebotomy and injections, guess what?
We actually get to practice on each other. They have a full "lab" that simulates the actual career experience so that when we leave here, we'll be very prepared. I was always scared of something like sticking a needle in a person. What i got here at STC was a lot of confidence, that can only come from all the labs i've gon through and the help of the instructors. They really care about me succeeding here.
I remember at VCC, teachers would be the first ones out of the class when it was over! Not so here.
I love it, I can't wait to graduate so I can finally put to practice everything that I learned here, except as a career!
Attending Southern Technical College was the best decision I ever made. From the minute I walked in the door at the Orlando campus I felt like amazing things were going to happened to me. Not only did I graduate with an Associates degree which by the way I am the first in my family but they help me prepare for the Medical Assisting certification, I now have a job making more money than I imagined and at a job that I love.
The instructors there are so passionate about helping you succeed. They called me anytime I missed two classes to make sure I was on track. I am so happy that I walked through those doors, it truly changed my life.
Well, you can tell this school has excellent communication. The Dean is my favorite!! Mr. J. gave me good ideas for personal direction of my life and getting me out of my dead-end job. I had little options when I walked in the front door of this College, but when I left I had a lot of things to look forward to. I have a job now in my field and I'm excited about the new potential I have for the future.
I was really very hesitant checking this school out after reading all the negative reviews on this site.
This school has been nothing but great to me, I'm learning so much, the teachers are firm but fair, and the students can talk to the Dean whenever they want. I think people forget that not everyone wants to go to a community college and participate in the latest drama of who's trying to get with who. Most of the students I've seen here are really trying to make a better future for themselves and are here to study and make that happen. i'm glad that i made the choice to come to school here. I started 5 months ago and only now did i remember to come back and write my review (i'm studying for a paper)
But don't believe me or anyone else you read here. Go check it out for yourself and see if you feel good here. If you don't think they can help you, don't come! More teacher time for me!!!!
About some of the postings I've seen here: i will tell you this: This school gives you the chance to succeed, and that's all you can ask for. Just like any other school, not everyone knows what to do with opportunity when it knocks at the door. I feel sorry for them.
I took the HVAC program in Sanford and got a job within a week of graduation.
Professor Robinson is the best teacher i have ever had before.
I highly recommend this school.
I think it is a shame that people have nothing better to do than go online and bash schools for no reason.
I attended this school because I wanted to get my foot in the door in the medical field. They told me I would be eligible for 5 different certifications. That wasn't true. The classes offered weren't "in depth" enough to prepare you for 3 of the 5 certifications. Not only that, but their courses weren't even challenging. Now, I'm in debt and still working my old job. Its just a money making scheme. Thanks, Southern!
Just wanted to let everyone out there to know that none of the credits are transferrable. It is a for profit school who only wants to suck poor people dry. In the real world employers have never heard about this school and laugh when the hear that students pay over $30,000 for a degree that means absolutely nothing. Good luck if you choose to go this college.
