Eagle Gate College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
Disrespectful faculty who do nothing to enforce the rules. The staff are rude and belittling, they will not address your complaints, just ignore them or tell you to get over it. They'll say they "care about your and your education" but all they really care about is the money you pay the school. The staff will argue with each other, and give you conflicting information depending on who you ask. This school doesn't have a backbone, and they are the worst choice to go with in furthering your education.
I noticed the Murray campus no longer offers a degree in computer programming. We were a small group, about a dozen, that knew on another. After hard work and starting at entry level jobs, I have IBM on my resume and work at a consultant. Teacher Ron Sandstrom was my mentor. I can confirm that at least (3) of us have made it, but we all had to start from the bottom. Don't believe the hype, I've worked with many students with computer science degrees from regionally accredited colleges and they do not know much. At Eagle Gate, they give you the hands on, which is what I needed. From then on, it's up to you to run with it and make the most of it.
Plenty of age discrimination. As an older student I am constantly being told to shut up, don't ask any questions and laughed and mocked by students and faculty. I was told if I said anything they would withdrawal my degree and stick me with tons of debt. I needed a quick professional degree program, instead I got this. Teachers are poorly informed, clickish and have a desire to pick out students that are older and give them hell. I would like to be more detailed but retaliation is a strong and will happen. If you are over 30 like me, don't go here. It's just no worth it. I hate to be so negative but please listen, run...........I PROMISE you'll be lad you did!
The teachers are nice, but honestly the cost is ridiculous. There are all these extra costs at the end that add up VERY quickly(example-2 background checks, a drug test, exam fee,graduation costs!). I wish I would of checked around a lot more before obligating myself to this school. During my externship I talked to so many people and every one of them were shocked at how much I paid to go to this school. Not to mention that everyone else had there National Exams paid for by the school, a $129 fee, they paid less than half that I did, and in some cases got there certificates in half the time. I have maintained a 3.86 GPA, have done all the school work, went to every class and feel like I left not learning much more than what I went in knowing. I would just advise people to check around first. There are other schools that are just as good, that are much cheaper, that could get you into the job force much sooner.
I found this school to be terrible! Most of the teachers that I had were incompetent. When learning how to do x-rays we never even saw an x-ray machine. We were told that when we were finally employed we would be able to look at the machine and figure it out ourselves. I could go on and on about how bad this school it. It was the biggest waste of money and time. I graduated and got my MA certification. I called career services many times requesting help with job placement and my calls were never returned. Most places I have found do not want to hire students that have gone to Eagle Gate College because of the crappy education they receive.
Go to DATC if you want to get your MA certification. DO NOT go to this school. You will regret it!
