Be afraid! Go to a community college it's cheaper! Why waste....oops, spend the $ to get a certificate and do a ridiculous externship that will make it hard for you to work and do. Think before you sign your spending ALOT $ for this and a community college is cheaper.

Degree: Cosmetology
Graduation Year: 2017

Initially, I was excited to attend Dorsey School of Beauty in Taylor. My excitement turned to dismay within two short weeks. The admissions and financial aid department give a completely different reality, than portrayed in the classroom and curriculum. Its a numbers game of high admission rates and mediocre teaching. The students are disrespectful to the teachers, administrators, and classmates. Some instructors have little or no control over the classroom. It's very distracting. Dress code enforcement is a joke, professionalism by students and administrators is a joke as well. I will make the most of it because I have to pay back the loan. Don't waste your time!!!! You could learn more on U tube.

This is a school that need to be revamped quickly. The instructors have no control in the Roseville campus. It sad when you allow so much ignorance in the classes and no one know how to handle problems that disrupt class on a daily basis. You have student that can't read. So Dorsey just want money that there focus. It a very unprofessional school. Not all instructors are bad there but that was the worst experience I had in school.

Garbage. Utter garbage. Save yourself the pain and money and go to a real college, or join the Navy medical like I did. This "school" is a complete sham. The courses offered are extremely basic, and can easily be learned instead by using Google and YouTube.

Degree: Patient Care Technician
Graduation Year: 2013

I attended Dorsey-Rosevilleabout two years ago. I went from night classes to day classes, thank god because it was like high school central on the night classes! I had the best teachers on days and they knew what they were teaching! THEY DO NOT HELP YOU GET A JOB IN THE HOSPITAL!!!!! so be ready to apply on your own! I got hired in at an assisted living center before I even walked the stage! Soon after that I was hired in at St.Johns! Which I have been working with now for over a year. You definitely lose your technique working in a assisted living center, I'd try to get into a hospital right away! Most hospitals start their techs off at 12 an hour! St. John's is 13.40 an hour and if you work midnights you get a shift premium! If you're going to go to this school is choose morning classes over night! If your planning on going back to become an RN don't even waste your time with this program, go right to school!!! You can get hired in as a PCT once your are in a nursing program!!!!!

Love this school. The teachers and staff are amazing. Will definitely recommend this school and campus to anyone. Teachers are hard on you in a good way cause they want all of us to succeed. The staff does whatever they can do to help you out also. I currently attend the waterford Pontiac location.

Dorsey Schools are the worst. They only care about the money. They say you will be dropped if you miss 10 days in a row but then they don't drop those people and those of us that didnt miss had to sit and wait while that person gets caught up. They let good instructors go and keep the ones that have favorites and don't keep records. I got a 100% attendance award for a module that I missed 3 days because I was sick. We were given test questions before the test and the answers, the same thing happened with the finals. Now I don't think I am going to pass the certification exam because I didn't learn, we only memorized answers. My extern says I was taught everything wrong but they dont care that I only got to give 3shots and only drew blood 4 times. I never could hear a blood pressure but they passed me anyway. This school should be shut down, Everyone cheats and no one cares, not even the Dean. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!

This college Stinks . They take all of your grant money and some out of your pocket at the end .The teachers let some student cheat while other students struggle.some students will take part in class projects and the DAmN teachers will let other students take credit for your work while giving you the one who did the work a BIG FAT ZERO.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

I'm still currently attending Dorsey in Madison Heights and I'll start off by saying that the instructors are absolutely impressive. I adore the ones I've had so far. My issue are some of the students that I am forced to deal with. The ones in particular complain, they find people to target and antagonize, and they're extremely rude to the instructors. Unfortunately the instructors can only do so much without disrupting the class. I have gone to my counselor and have let them know my personal experience and what I've seen others go through and nothing has been done. I am never one to complain, I hate complaining. I try to see a silver lining in everything but it's absurd to think that if these particular individuals cause unnecessary problems with other students, why are they getting in the medical field to be surrounded by people that depend on our respect and kindness? Maybe writing this review will gain attention at the school and someone will step up and do something about the issue.

Degree: Pharmacy Technician/Assistant

The teachers are required to have experience in the field but dont need to have any teaching experience. My pharm tech teacher was awful, she was readong straight from the book one second and telling us everything was wrong the next.
