American National University Reviews
Do not waste your time with university. I applied to do their Online Medical Office Professional(MOP) program. Thought it was great there was a campus in my town, Yet it was all online and fit my schedule, I went full time, 3 classes per 10 week term, took me 8 months. Should have a diploma this month for it because I passed all requirements. What was interesting to me is, When I enrolled I had all the support, They were all helpful at the campus,called me etc. I was like Wow, this is great. A small university, I will get all kinds of one on one treatment it will be so much better than a large university. I recieved federal financial aid and the pell grant. When I met with their financial aid advisor, they did not have an onsite person. it was done over Zoom. and I had to e sign all these documents. My financial Aid was right down to the cent of what they said my tuition was every term. I Found that to be pretty weird. Because I had went to school before and always ended up with a refund of quite a bit. Once I was enrolled. The help stopped. I couldnt get a hold of nobody. If I would email, they would not reply. If I would go there in person they were busy or would have to call someone and find out the answer. Once they get your money, they dont care about you. My last term started in August, one of the teachers was terrible!!! I would email her and she would take a month to reply. did not reply to emails until it was week of Surveys. I had what I thought was an A in the course, she never graded anything the same week. some things we had 3 attempts but I never knew if I needed a 2nd or 3rd try. I ended up with a C in that course, you had to have a C to pass the course. Had I known where my grade stood all term long, she was even at my local university and I could not meet with her or contact her. I tried to reach someone who was in control over those kids of complaints, I was hung up on. I did get a call back and when I called back and left him a message he never again returned my call, even though I would call and leave him messages. Then out of the blue today I get a email threatening to sue me saying I owe them $2500 and I missed these payments and they reported me to the credit agencies. I finished my program in October. They take all your financial aid, down to the penny and then do this to you. do research before you pick a school.
Started the degree program in 2015 only to find out that they changed the program in my last semester, meaning I had to take extra classes. For the CPT coding ! and 2 classes, the instructor didn't even teach us any of the coding concepts. She literally just assigned the work. After several complaints, finally in CPT 2, the regular coding teacher had to go back and teach the basics and rush the advanced portions. Then for the required externship, I was told that this was planned in advance, well of course it wasn't and they waited until last minute. So, I got stuck working at the CFI building for LGH. Biggest wast of time ever. Instead of getting a full week of coding, I got stuck indexing charge sheets the entire. And after all of this, they had the nerve to try and pressure me into taking the RHIT examination. This was an exam that I knew I wasn't prepared for, and so, I didn't take it. Then career services, which was guaranteed to help us find a job after graduation, made me a half resume and I haven't heard from them since. Same for the HIM program director who was pretty good to me throughout my time there. As soon as she found I didn't take that exam, she dropped me like a hot potato. Do not attend this school. All they want is your money. It is fraud to the highest degree. You have been warned!!!
