"Charter college in Bellingham, Wa claimed I never graduated so now I have to pay a grant back which payed for over half of my schooling. I walked on stage, got my diploma and completed the externship program and all the paperwork that came with it. The program was rushed with very little hands in experience."

"This is a school i do not reccommend. The first 2 weeks eere fine until we were stuck there we basically learned things on our own through books when we were told everything was hnds on. Half the teachers there had no idea what they were teaching and now 5 years later im told im in collection when i have been paying since i started school there. That was the worst mistake i could have done and now im paying for it years later. Money gone to waste, literally today i was told my account was in collection? So where was all my money going to?"

"I graduated from charter in 2015. It took me about two weeks to find a great job I always wanted. I think I did the best investment ever. Teachers were very helpful and always gave me the right advise. I only have a comment though, the registrar made a mistake and mistyped my name, I had to get it corrected but that is the only problem I have had. I highly recommend !!!"

Dont waste your money - 4/25/2017
Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015
"This school gave no help to actually succeed and pass all mods. Teachers didnt really care. They act like they care to get you into the school, then just leave you hanging. Check out another school and dont get into debt over this school. The student loan dept is a joke as well. This school is all about making money."

Charter College - 8/26/2016
Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2013
"THE WORST SCHOOL EVER. They did not give me an exit interview to go over my student loans. There was a federal I didn't even know about. They were sending my statements to North Carolina and I live/ went to school in Washington. I'VE NEVER BEEN TO NORTH CAROLINA. I had a loan through a private loan company called UNISA, Charter College took back my loan... then they sent it to a collection agency ACP. I have no idea how to view my loan now. They are not helpful AT ALL. I would not recommend this school to anyone, ever. Its a joke. Now I have no idea how to deal with my student loan because some sketchy debt collector has it and they threaten people by saying they will have them arrested if they don't pay by a certain time. I'm not sure if what Charter College is doing is legal. It needs to stop! Before more people are taken advantage of. They did not prepare me for the dental field at all. All they care about is $$ not the students. They have a high turn over rate due to the fact they treat their employees so poorly. This school should be SHUT DOWN. My advice to anyone thinking about attending Charter College, DO NOT ENROLL, RUN FAR, FAR AWAY!!! OH and did I mention that they say Charter College is an accredited school when they are NOT. So if you go to Charter College and later want to further your career, you will have to start all over, nothing transfers and Charter is not accredited to DANB. HORRIBLE SCHOOL. HORRIBLE."

Dental Assistant/Allied Health - 4/8/2016
Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015
"Ive called financial aid at my campus twice this week and no one has called me back. Its so unprofessional and there is never consistently the same people on campus (high turn over rate) i had 100 percent of my school paid for with the GI bill and other grants and they sent me a separate bill in the mail for over 5 thousand dollars they ripped me off and double dipped. My internship was embarrassing ... They told me my school did not teach me or prepare me properly and offered me more time later to learn on the job because they felt bad for me because of my school being a scam... Now im getting a congressmen office involved so they can investigate ... because due to the gi bill they sent them so much money... I also had Pell grants that helped too and other grants... It blows my mind that they haven't been investigated or shut down."

"A complete money scam. It's a waste of money and time. I have a 4.0 and still didn't come out with the education or job I desired and worked so hard for. Teachers and curriculum is scattered and unorganized. Rda papers were sent under the wrong year, CPR cards were lost and the clinic was unorganized and unprofessional."

"SCAM! I have never been to a school with low morals! I would have much rather not have been a lazy bum and finished community college! They promise you so much and get you no where! New students I recommend community college you will regret this so!."
