Student & Graduate Reviews (39)
The Paralegal program is a joke! I graduated with a 4.0 and felt so good about that! I got a job in my field (not with help from school) but through people I knew. That job lasted one month because what I "learned" during school did not prepare me for the real world position! What I spent $20,000 for I could have learned by checking out books from the library or watching online videos. Of all the instructors I had, only one seemed to know what she was talking about and was actively engaged in our classes. I would urge everyone interested in this college to look at all options available. Charters representatives are very good at making you think they offer the best solution for you, but in my opinion, they are nothing but glorified sales people. If you decide to attend, double and triple check your financing information. On the phone I was told my total loan would be $11,500; when it was all said and done, it was over $20,000! They have not only the federal loans, but also UNISA which is private through them. Charter college is a scam college!!!
SCAM!!!!!! This "school" is complete scum!!!! Locked me out of classes in July and kept charging four thousand a month to my student loan account even after they dropped me!! They collected as if I had graduated.Teachers are awful...everything is online and a total joke.Now I'm in debt with no degree or education to show.Its time for a class action lawsuit!!!
Poor education and the "degree" is a complete joke. Over 50K in debt and my degree is completely worthless. This school is money hungry and will tell you want you want to hear to get you to sign their papers. Save your money and go to a real school..
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.
Don't even consider this place. NOT All they want is money. Lots of promises.. don't get seduced. The worst regret of my life. No one wants to hire me with that worthless diploma. Its not only me. Other students as well. I dont know what to do now.
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!.
I wanted to say I am sorry some of you had bad experiences but I want to share a few things. I am currently enrolled in Charter and will have my MA certificate in November. I have also been to regular college and attended similar classes. BY FAR Charter is better. Here is what I see, I have seen a lot of students drop out. There were various reasons maybe too much work, reading, not enough class time. I've said it in other reviews but the programs offered are all accelerated. I spend 2 days a week in class for 4 1/2 hours, that is just about as typical of any other college out there. I spend a minimum of 4-5 hours 6 days a week working on the school work. I knew going into this I had to stay focused and disciplined. Heck no it's no picnic in the park! It's expensive but I just found out that the local college here in my area that offers the same type MA program only "registers" their students to go in the field. Charter "certifies" the students. This means Charter students can do much more in the field when the go out for their externship then the registered, college MAs. They do throw a lot of of stuff at you every week. Organize yourself and set time aside at least 5-6 days a week working and studying on school. For those students that have never stepped foot in the medical field it will be harder. Speaking of work, you will learn more in the field when you get a job as an MA than in a classroom. It's like that in almost all specialty careers. This is a fantastic program! The teachers are always willing to help you. They answer emails quickly, especially over the weekend. If you really want to be an MA this is where to go to get your certificate. I admit that there are a few things that I don't like at the school, but I am so focused on graduating that I don't even think about it that much.
Started the paralegal program at Charter College. The instructors were almost completely incompetent in their teaching. I was unaware at the time that the campus had just began the paralegal program and were looking for bodies to push through. Upon my externship the lawyer told me that everything that I had learned was a joke and that I was ill prepared to work in the legal field. Charter College was an expensive waste of time. Over $40,000 down the drain. I horribly regret ever going there and will strongly discourage anyone from attending. It's such a scam.
I can just say my experience has been horrible I never learned anything since day one the work was thrown at me and was expected to.be finished I never received any help so ultimately my grades were bad which lead to them kicking me out meaning the forced me to drop out because they cut my financial aid they said they were not going to fund my education because other students have more potential so if I wanted to come back to school the next day I'd have to pay 2 grand for the class I could not come up with that kind of money in a day now they expect me to pay the rest of what was owed but I never saw any financial aid and I'm being threatened to make payments to the school but they refuse to tell me what I owe. I regret going there it's been a huge waste of time and money and I suggest to people to not go there stay away
I have been struggling to receive my certificate for over a year now and I can honestly say that Charter College does not teach their classes efficiently and do not care about your education as long as you're paying their over priced tuition. When I enrolled I was told that I would be receiving hands on learning in my classes. The further I got into my program the more they started to change the rules and regulations on everything. Within a few months the 'hands on learning' was extremely limited. ALL of the classes, homework, quizzes, and test were done online. Including some 'lab' classes. I was not informed this when I enrolled. It is false advertisement. My classmates and I struggled throughout each class due to the lack of hands on learning and the amount of flaws and glitches in their online program. Only 2 of my classmates actually graduated and received their certificate. I found it extremely difficult to meet the needs of their online classes. Every class is 5 weeks and the amount of information given in those 5 weeks are equivalent to a semester in college. Especially since you only get 1 day (4 hours) a week for each class to learn about the material you are given. It is a very cheap education that demands you pay a high price for. Charter is not open ears to criticism from the students nor from the employees. As I've seen them get fired for doing so. When I enrolled they were very convincing that this was the best program you could ask for, and that your academic needs would be met to get to where you need to be. Yet when students including myself, had stepped up and brought up an issue regarding the school or academic struggles, were dealt with only arrogance and given was the impression of "shut up and go make charter look good." Every single time. It's no surprise that this school has a 37% graduation rate. I would 10/10 not recommend this school to anyone.
