"I was never enrolled in this "school" and I will explain why. I was interested in the Medical Billing and Coding certificate but decided against it. The recruiters are extremely pushy and want you to go in on a tour which I didn't do since I simply wanted to know if it would be affordable or if I could study online. I'm glad I didn't waste my time with a tour. The nine-month certification costs $15194.00 and I would only have had a small chunk of it covered by financial aid, and long story short, they wanted me to pay $2550.00 within ten months WHILE studying. Why can't the remainder be deferred until getting the certification? Does Carrington not know or simply not care that the reason some people opt to take these courses is to be able to make more money upon completion and probably can't afford to pay thousands of dollars upfront? It's ridiculous and they should be ashamed of how greedy they are. Also, if I ever were to complete the certification, how would I be able to be sure that it would actually help me find a job in my area? I bet they don't help with job placement or even have lists of places that hire their students. I'm so glad, especially after reading other reviews about this place, that I didn't go through with it. I wouldn't have given them a single cent."

"I have never in my life been so disappointed with any establishment. They put me through 6 weeks of school working my butt off ( I have 5 kids to boot) to tell me that my homeschool diploma was not acceptable. I told them before I ever even started that I had a non accredited diploma and they said it was fine and still allowed me to start. I then asked if I could keep going if I got my GED, and I have an actual email where they said yes. So, once again, I studied my butt off and got my GED in 2 weeks, (On top off getting A's in classes) only for them to tell me it doesn't matter and they won't accept it. They then tried to charge me $3,000 for only 6 weeks (the whole certificate only cost $8,000 with a grant) and start over. I had to get a lawyer involved and they ended up charging me $254 for physical books. I am no longer in school and am very leary to try again. I am so disgusted with their lies and money hunger. I am so glad not to be a part of this "school" anymore and can't believe that they are allowed to get away with doing this to people."

"I made the mistake of thinking this would be easy online. It wasn't. The exams were a joke because I was given several books and then the instructor said I was using the wrong book or not in the right category even when I had the same questions for hw and I was getting 100s. The instructor was based out of AZ where the time change is only an hour ahead. There has also been an issue of after withdrawing within three weeks they continue to send me bills saying I owe them $ 202.49. For what?? I owe them nothing!! I filed a Ripoff Report and hope they are sued."
