ECPI University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (110)
Graduated 2016 still no job. ECPI has bad reputation I heard employers throw resumes in the trash. I have a degree I can't use Every interview I have been on I am told "You don't have any experience" career services doesn't help I wish I had never gone there it is a poor excuse for a college I would tell anyone do not attend you will be sorry. Nobody wants to hire a first time medical assistant. Go somewhere else for your education they are just after your money
ECPI is a fraud. They pretend to impart education in 5 hour long classes that everyone sleeps through. It's a total waste to time and employers already know the reputation of this so called private college, so no one is going to hire you. You will not learn anything but you will get a degree eventually. I strongly recommend attend a community college or university instead.
This college, ECPI is a fraud. Students are given free grades for their money. Some students with military background already have some job skills but other than that no new job skills are acquired. Students still keep signing up because it makes them feel good that they are attending college and getting a degree.
Complete Joke. My daughter is Still unemployed with a degree. They did not assist her with getting a job. When she graduated Waist of my GI Bill. They stated they would assist her but did not. No one wants to hire a first time Dental Assistant with minimum experience and ECPI job entry program is not effective.
It is sad to see so many bad reviews for this school. I have completed my LPN diploma program through them and my healthcare administration degree. When I think back to my LPN program, I can see why there could be so many negative comments. It is very expensive and some of the instructors were not good. But overall I had very good experience and great teachers who taught me a lot. (I graduated in 2009) When it comes to my healthcare administration degree...I cant say enough of good things about the program...It was not easy, but all my instructors (except 1) were great. Very knowledgeable, always had time for me and made sure I had what I need to be ready for the field. I have gotten a job as Practice Manager with major healthcare system prior to my graduation and am very glad I made a choice to join ECPI.
ECPI is a wonderful college. I finished my bachelor's in 24 months. All my prior credits transferred . My military training was counted per ACE credits. I would recommend this college to anyone looking to further their education! If you apply yourself you will succeed. I fail you probably were not ready for college anyway.
This "University" is a joke. I changed majors 2/3 of the way through because I was having trouble understanding the material and because - despite what I was told earlier, the job opportunities weren't there anymore for Web Development. So after racking up $30,000~ in student loans I switched majors and then racked up another $28,000~ in loans. After that I had a plan which fell through because of my financial situation and needed help finding a job. Not only are the teachers at ECPI a joke, 1/3 of them left after my second year, but the "career services" are even worse. They do not match you with employers, especially if you are a graduate (they are essentially, 'done' with you) and do a bare minimum in helping you find a job. You are basically on your own, happy hunting on indeed because you will get little help from their "professionals" in finding a good/decent paying job. I highly recommend you stay away from this university.
I...for the life of me can't seem to understand why anyone would ever consider ECPI University to be beneficial for military members. All they want is that GI Bill. Nevermind your technical training or hands-on experience. Oh, and did I mention they make it damn near impossible to transfer credits from other ACCREDITED schools. I had to start over from scratch. Money is their motive. You fail to attend one day, and you can literally fail a whole class, due to it being an accelerated program, and guess what....you're paying for that same class all over again. It's best if you have children to make sure they're NEVER sick or have to stay home. The classrooms are freezing cold, there are only overpriced vending machines, and lunch breaks are only 20 minutes, which gives you zero time to even pick up something. I could go on for days. I'm disappointed in myself for staying so long. A transfer is in my near future.
If you are military - stay away from this school. If you are going to apply for a job, ECPI is ranked bottom by my employers. I eventually got the same degree but with a different university and finally my masters with another university as well. They aid program seems very shady, there courses seem to be very outdated (I did graduate with 3.95) and the instructors seem to have no clue about certain questions - not sure if those instructors had a lot of experience. Whatever university you are going to go to - anyone but this one. It is a rip-off, and a trade school - hence why it is not a university. Do not waste your GI bill here - I did it, graduated and regretted it.
Worst decision ever IT teachers do not help they judge, they want students that know what they are doing because they do not want to teach. They do not support the military it's a lie, they are constantly telling us how we were learning nothing while in service. They constantly look at ex-military as if we are just getting a free ride as if we did not earn our GI Bill. Went through school but did not really learn anything but they are quick at failing you and making you pay for another semester, it is all about the money not teaching.
