"I am in my second quarter in Beckfield's Nursing program and I am very pleased with my experience so far. Everyone at Beckfield is so helpful and make it very clear that they want you to succeed. When going into the nursing program, it is explained thoroughly that this educational path is not for the faint of heart. It is meant to be hard. So far, every instructor I've had has been wonderful. I highly reccommend Beckfield"s nursing program!"

"This is by far the worse college I have ever gone too. You teacher your self, pay a s*** ton of money and are treated like a dumb ass every time you ask a question. They are also very unfair to their students. I differently wouldn't even send my dead dog here. I spent several months at this school and was a very hard loyal student. My nursing instructor failed me by less then a half of a point but found a way to add points so others could pass. When I went to talk to the dean she made it a point to tell me I was a lier and needed to pay hundreds of dollars to take a test to be allowed back into there program and that I needed to keep my mouth shut. When just last quarter they allowed students who failed a class to continue with other classes. I have seen this school screw and hurt so many people. They have only one teacher that teaches every nursing class. If you wanna call it teaching. They are way over priced. Thomas Moore is way cheaper. I have seen them tack on money to peoples fee's and require them to pay them cash before they would let them graduate. Mind you they tell these people that at the very end of there last quarter. If you ever want to become something and get your degree, I recommend never walking into this place. All they are is fake sales people."

"This college is by far the worst college. They gave me false information with financial aid. I owe 5500 out of pocket just for 3 months (1 quarter)! That's outrageous. They told me it would be half that. I sure hope people read the reviews before falling in to their trap."

"I wasted 7 years of my life with this college. I now owe the Federal government over $57,000.00 in student, hold two college degress, and am unemployed. I successfully completed Beckfield's Paralegal program and then went back for my Bachelors in Healthcare Management ( which no longer exists by the way). The HCM was terminated 9 months before my completion date. I did not find this information until the last quarter. I should have been made aware of this and given the opportunity to transfer programs at no cost. Since I have graduated, I have sent my resume out over 300 times. I have received one phone interview and was told that my degree is useless in this area as there is no niche for this type of work. Local Hospitals and medical facilities are now using licensed RNs to fill these positions as they are much more current on practices and practicums than an individual with managment classes. I did write my resume with the Career Placement ladies, and to avail. I am still unemployed and paying on my student loans. I have found no success with either of my degrees from Beckfield College. The individuals who have attended Beckfield College for RNs and MAs have found the most success. I applaud them in these programs as they are taught by licensed individuals in the medical fields. However, I feel saddened by my experience as I was not given the option or knowledge to move forward in my life. All I ever wanted was to make a solid living for my myself and support my family. I will now never meet my dreams of working in the medical profession and will forever be indebted to the government with this heavy financial burden that I am solely responsible for."

"Fully and completely unorganized. Some of staff are friendly but most rude. If ur not the smartest they treat you that way. Specially a specific teacher that I will not name. Not helpful. But they all are good sales people! They sold me! Credits do not transfer anywhere. There ati"s are unorganized. I am very unprepared. I have studied my butt off and have 100% taught myself! Do not come here!!!!! Tri county campus"

"Hello All, I would like to let everyone know why these people are moaning and complaining, while also acting mello-dramatic, about a school that is not so bad. First of all, as one person previously mentioned, go in with caution. But that is not just for Beckfield College. The advice previously mentioned is for any college you plan to seek and or further your education. Beckfield college does not "require" you to purchase anything you do not wish to. You have to be upfront with Financial Aid at the time your package is being completed, that you wish to not get a laptop or any other superfluous items from the school. Financial Aid is leaving the laptop and the cost of my books out of expenses until I find them on my own, when I wish to purchase the items from the school, Beckfield will gladly add those items back into my financial aid package. I can't stress enough, and repeat myself, while sounding redundant. So, in a nutshell, make sure you are upfront with the college financially. Also, read the policies! Do not just take a summer off without properly withdrawing or filing a leave of absence. The same scenario as previously mentioned in another review, happened to me at a University! Be responsible with your education, and the facility you are attending will be responsible with you as well."

"Credits will not transfer to any college. They do not assist you in job placement after graduation. They say "Lifetime Job Placement assistance". Attorneys see Beckfield College and I have been told my skills for there are below standard. Do not waste your money."

"I do not know what this school was like before I started attending but I am very pleased with my experiences there so far (almost 2 years). Everyone from Admissions to Financial Aid, Deans, Instructors and Career Counselors are very professional and upfront about what you should expect as a student there."

"I attended Beckfield from 2003-2005. I obtained my Associates in Applied Sciences for Paralegal studies and graduated with a GPA of 3.5. On two seperate occasions while enrolled I heard rumors from other students that were having difficulties transferring their credits. The counselor, Chris, reassured me both times that there must be some mix up because "we are nationally accreditted, not just regionally, so these credits will follow you across the country." But, turns out, in 2006 when I returned to school for my RN, I learned that not Gateway, not UC, not Mt. st. Joe, not NKU, not thomas Moore.... no one accepts Beckfield's credits because they answer to a different accreditter. The only other nationally accredditted school in the entire tri state area is Galen but it is also an Associate degree only school. If you only want your associate, the school will place you in a job but if you wish to go further with your education, you will be greatly angered. It was an extreme slap to the face. It is sad that someone tries to better themselves with an education, is lied to and deceived, then finds out they have wasted 2 years and $25K+. I tell everyone my story because I want them to either get the correct accredidation or go out of business. It's useless."
