Debtfully Disgusted

"Financial Aid department was a joke! Messed up records and Aid packages often, Office staff was rude, teachers didn’t know what they were teaching half the time, labs weren’t stocked with materials needed to have the proper hands on training. The few good teachers they did have, that gave a rats ass about us, left because of management and unethical company policies, if we had a teacher at all sometimes. Myself, and seven other students in my batch that I knew/know, none of us found any work doing what we were going to school for. Was told we would be given externships doing what we went to school for… I ended up serving lunches and cleaning tables in a nursing home! Medical Assistant, yeahhh, right! What they also didn’t tell us, was at the time, hospitals and Doctors offices were no longer looking for MA’s they were hiring LPN’s instead. Deans list, Honor Roll… you name it! I was on it! Single mom, of two babies, 16 months apart, full time job, full time student, caretaker of my double stroke, dialysis, diabetic Godfather, barely making ends meet, all of that hard work and determination to do better for my children, to end up a glorified waitress at an old folks home for two weeks, (not that I mind helping senior citizens) but seriously! Here I am, $40k in debt and no experience because no one would hire without externships and 6 months experience! Didn’t even make it past first interviews, found out what school I had attended don’t call us, we’ll call you. In one interview, quite literally, I was practically laughed out of the building… should have went to TCC and took the course, I’d be about $30k less in debt! Sick to my stomach every time I have to think about it!"

"The worst school ever, I am victim of financial aid fraud the campus I went to is close now kidney dialysis place in Richmond, VA. I got book smart but as for skills I never learn unfortunately I lost two jobs due to this matter. I got inform by doctors to my face that I didn't have the skills to do the job. I never forgot when I talk to auditor tell me the school is under investigation for financial aid fraud. They discover I was one of them."

"I'm a current student. I was leery at first, but after my appointment with my admission advisor along with my tour I was convinced that this was the educational choice/ facility I needed to try. Everyone (staff) is different compared to the reviews.The staff here now at the Norfolk location are wonderful and caring and I feel they want to make sure you're understanding the material. They show great interest in making sure that your successful in your future, and can represent. I love'em Keep up the good work Centura College Norfolk!"

"Where do I begin? This school is a waste of both time and money. Its not worth the 2 years and 30+ that you spend. They constantly mess up your financial paperwork, charge you where you shouldn't be. By the time I realized I would have to restart school, because credits don't transfer it was too late. I was 7 months in and had already wasted a quarter of my GI Bill. There are very FEW teachers that actually know what they're doing. Please please do not just jump in because you want to be done with school quick. ITS NOT WORTH IT. Take your money to school that is actually professional and not a money hungry place. I can only hope they get shut down as ITT tech did. I've written a review before, and when I did that they were not too happy with me. I was asked to see the director and when I did and explained to her what me and my other classmates were thinking, all she said was "I will see what I can do" Yet NOTHING was done. They have messed up on tax forms, putting incorrect numbers in causing those who used it to have to go in and amend their taxes, they have unenrolled students then quickly reenrolled them without their knowledge. Policies are constantly changing. There is a huge turnover rate. The only 2 good teachers that were there were driven out by others over things that were not even relevant to students success. The minute they feel like you're getting to know their antics, they do something to shut it down. They have no idea what they're doing and they don't care as long as they get a paycheck. They have no concern for students or their well being. The only reason they call you if you've been out to long is because they know they're going to lose money if they loose you. I can only hope that the future potential students do their research before enrolling in this awful school. Its not worth it, take it from someone who is graduating. STAY AWAY from this hack place they try to call a college."

"This school is a total joke. I went there without doing enough research and by the time I realize that I was wasting my time and money, it was too late. I graduated with a 4.0 and never able to get a job. No help with career services because there is a new employee in there every month. I was $18, 000 in debt when I finished. I said 18K after all financial aid. The worst mistake of my life!!!!!! So I went back to working in retail, because I now have a student loan to pay off every month in addition to my regular bills. I was so disgusted and disappointed after this that I almost gave up my dream to work in the medical field forever. But I pulled myself together after a while and decided to go to nursing school. NO COMMUNITY COLLEGE OR PUBLIC UNIVERSITY WOULD LET ME TRANSFER MY CREDITS FROM CENTURA COLLEGE!!!!!!! I almost fainted when I learned this. Of course I was assured at Centura college that I will be able to take my credits anywhere, and I trusted them. So I started school all over as if I never set foot in a class beyond high school. I will be graduating from nursing school in May 2018. It has been a long road for me because of the mistake I have made attending Centura college. I will not advise even my worse enemy to spend 18 months of their life, and 18 k without counting interest on a fictitious degree! I have already saved a few people who were thinking of attending this college and I will continue to use my experience to help other unsuspecting victims."
