"You get out what you put in. Please do not expect to have high test scores and a cream-puff job just handed to you. Those who are well-rounded and constantly improving themselves in *every* way are getting the jobs those on here are complaining about NOT getting. Career Quest and the Faculty they employ should be considered a lighthouse, not a rescue boat. Learn to, and expect to, kick your feet and paddle to rescue yourself. My instructors have been amazing and I have zero doubt my dreams will come to fruition having them in my corner."
"$10 grand in debt from there and I graduated with honors and top test score in my class. Do not waste your money. I am currently in school working towards my masters in psychology."
"Please do your research before choosing a school. I made a mistake and I'm paying for it."
"They prey on the poor its a sales team after your there for awhile they pretend not to know you. I told a university were I went to get my cert they laughed I had to do the program all over again at a community collage. Paid 20,000 rollers for a useless cert. Buyer beware!"
"This place is a joke. It is barely accredited. Your credits will not transfer anywhere, and employers in the area know the bad reputation of the school so they will not hire you. You will pay less to get ab actual degree from a community college. CQLC is a FOR PROFIT college - aka they are a business that sells education. They get your money at the beginning so your success is not important to them. The classes are thrown together and not taught by qualified people. You have to use outdated equipment and work amongst endless OSHA violations."
"This is by far the worst educational experience I have had. This school promised a quality education with transferrable credits in the event you want to continue with future degrees. Vast majority of the credits ARE NOT recognized by Lansing Community College as an example. Many students are passed and given credit for a course whether they have earned it or not. It is all about the numbers for this school. The classroom environment was often times ridiculous with unruly, poorly behaved students who could not comply with a dress code, or sit in class and pay attention. Cell phone use, texting, using classroom computers for other than classwork during class, the list goes on to the disruption that occurred on a daily basis. I paid cash for a program that I had hoped would provide me with a recognized certification to add to an already solid resume of work experience. I started out thinking this would be a great addition to my work history and give me a more specialized field to work in. The more classes I attended, the more my attitude changed. I felt like I was on a sinking ship. Students start programs with such hope and the longer they attend, the attitudes change drastically. The teaching staff would change sometimes two or three times for a course because the instructor had issues with management or was unable to get along with students. You may sit in class for days without an instructor. There were student boycotts, students leaving class because they were fed up with either the instructor or lack of one. There is just too much about this school that needs revamping in order to make it worth considering. Hindsight is 20/20. I should have stayed with original plan of LCC. It would have taken a little longer for certification and degree but I would have spent less money and learned a lot more. What is more is I would have been proud of what I had accomplished and where I accomplished it. I am embarrassed to be associated with this "institution"."
