Degree: Homeland Security
Graduation Year: 2019

Ignore the bad reviews. Unfortunately, for many of these students who entered ECPI, they've been prone to the spoon fed lifestyle of education and life. Having come from a traditional four year instituation and transfering due to relocation, I can see the distinct difference in teaching styles. I'd reccomend looking at these reviews closely before making your decision. Many of these reviews sound like students who just cannot comprehend college level material. Unfortunately, college is not for everyone. You have to work to eaen your degree. You can't expect your professors to teach you every single single. You can't expect to be guided through every single little portion of your work. HOWEVER, you can be and frankly, it does not seem like any of these bad review students even attempted to work through their grades or creat communication with their porfessors. It's not the university's fault if you don't try. It's a two way street. No one hands out degrees. This isn't high school. You're not a kid. If you have a question, ask it. I laugh at the reviews from people saying ECPI did nothing for them, so now they have to get a masters to be proficient in their field. You can't get a Master's if you dont have your Bachelors. ECPI translates to real life if you do the work. That's it. Show up, ask questions, and continue to learn. Take initiative. If you're in the programming course, ask for help. Get the extra books, ask for tutoring (that's free). Don't let these people who can't work for their education stop you from getting yours.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

This school is horrible please do not waste your time with this school, its a bunch of lies ,the instructors are horrible they dont want to teach you and are very childish .They are not for the students at all they are money driven ,please dont waste $40,000.00 on this school go elsewhere and do your research before hand or you will make the worst mistake of your life. This program is accelerated so you are literally cramming information in just 5 weeks which is extremely hard when some instructors dont teach you its self taught. This bridge program was a lie when I first signed up they said it will take 8 months to get my RN after the LPN and now it switched to 12months and the program changes daily. They are very unorganized,unprofessional and more I dont recommend this school at all they need to shut it down .

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

All they care about is money and will say anything to get you in. I was advised not to put ecpi on my resume as it will have a negative impact on any chances you have to secure a decent job. Do yourself a favor and go for the Cisco or Palo Alto Networks Certifications. It felt like these students were people on work release and they had to do something while they were out and so they went here. Pros: None Zero Nothing Cons: Too many to list

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2020

From day 1 of starting class i have had bad experiences with them about my financial aid. I have attended for 3 terms and passed every class, they did not provide a stipend at all... Then they took me out of my classes without telling me. I got that straight, then when i decided to ask about a stipend they told me my stipend was cancelled because i dropped my classes which is a lie! They dropped me from my classes because i asked for money... Someone told me do not go to this school and i did not listen.. A waste of time and a waste of my financial aid! They are so unprofessional its a shame.. This is 1 school i regret attending

Degree: RN to BSN
Graduation Year: 2018

First impression was awful. Admissions staff are rude and they act as if you are a nucence with the exception of one very nice lady. Cant remember her name but blonde with a sweet southern accent. She was the ONLY one who returned calls and genuinely seemed to care. Fast program and no one seems to have much time to have much time to help if struggling. Dean is grouchy and doesnt like to be bothered. A few good teachers but seemed overwhelmed. Very expensive and financial aid not helpful. A take it or leave it attitude. I do not recommend if other options available. Teach to NCLEX.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020

I still attend this school and I love it. I feel like my advisor and the faculty care. This is an accelerated program. You have 5 weeks for each course. Memorization is required for some material, but it will be hard if you do not Understand the material and make connections with real world things. Its the same at any school you go to. Every college I've went to has told students to do outside research to make connections. The grading standards are high. Do you want a nurse caring for you or a loved one who only had to make the bare minimum D to pass? Or someone who had to work their butt of for an A or B in EVERY course or they'd have to repeat it? Many students drop out because of high demands. If you miss one day, its hard to catch up so in the winter a lot of flu goes around because no one wants to fail. But I love my school. And will be taking the RN and the RN to BSN once I'm done with LPN. My goal is to be a NP.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2002

Ecpi is a waste of time and money. Everything they do is incredibly unprofessional and not geared towards the student in any way shape or form, they just want your money. You will be better off going to a community college. You will regret going to ECPI, I guarantee it

Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is joke. From the first day of class we were flat out told by our professor that they didn't care about teaching. It was further demonstrated by the entire administration's lackluster on the job performance. It's really a shame how much this place charges for an education only to ultimately end up having to teach yourself the materials. I mean for crying out loud one professor didn't know how to calculate a simple dosage conversion. To make matters worse, the DON was made aware of this issue and nothing was done. Anybody can go to a test generator and create an exam. They only care about getting your money and that is all. If you need help with something..... wish in one hand and s*** in the other. They know they have a weak teaching staff and do nothing to improve. Avoid this disappointing school at all cost.

Degree: Network Security
Graduation Year: 2019

Overall, this is a great school to obtain a noteable degree by paying way less then what you would at a brick and mortar college. However, you most likely will not gain the knowledge needed to obtain a 70,000+ a year job right out of the gate. I hav ebeen a student here for about 3 years now, and from what I have observed, there are way to many courses that you have to take that are not relevant to your degree. For instance, I major in Networking, and have only taken 3 or 4 classes that were pretty beneficial to my career. I often feel like ECPI is holding me back from obtaining certifications since it takes a lot of my time and energy. This school is very fast paced, and especially with Math classes, it is difficult to learn so many concepts in just 5 weeks. I would definitely recommend this school though! It has gotten me to a great place in my career.
