Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

This is an accelerated online curriculum. Many negative reviews come from those not prepared for the time, effort, and responsibility that requires. I transferred a few credits and completed my B.S. EET in a little under two years. The accelerated program will put a strain on your personal/social life regardless of your situation, but I have a wife and three children under 11 years old, a 50+ hour a week job and can serve as proof that it can be accomplished. The professors will not drag you in to a meeting to help if you're having trouble with coursework; there has to be a line of communication open. My professors and administration staff were always available if and when I needed and asked for help. A key to remember is that this a curriculum / program for adult minded and responsible individuals. You get out what you put in. I have graduated less than 3 months ago and have found a career in related to my degree making more than I was at my previous employer. For me, the schedule and curriculum worked. This will not be the case for all...Good luck.

Degree: Registered Nursing/Registered Nurse
Graduation Year: 2017

In my opinion, ECPI was good. The RN program was rigorous but that is expected with an accelerated program. They didn't sugar coat anything during orientation, they flat out told you Luke it would be. Time consuming, 5 weeks for every class. It is legit hard by rewarding afterwards. The only people who complain about the program are those who didn't finish because they thought it would be a breeze type of degree. I kind of enjoyed my time there. A classmate of mine started together and finished together because we helped each other STUDY EVERY NIGHT, and she had a newborn when she first started. We never repeated a class, and we never gave up when it was hard. Yes, you have to pass with an 80, but it is doable if you study. That's the key to passing, STUDYING. Some of the clinical professors were not the best but you make do md ignore them while at clinical. Stay with your nurse you're assigned to, and just get your work done. Credits transfer to universities after you've completed the RN program, it still helps you obtain your BSN. So overall, Id recommend ECPI. Yes its pricey, but its a faster way to get your degree. Just study, do your work, and focus on the end goal. I got so many job offers before I even graduated, and some in specialty areas such as ICU and L&D. They don't look at your school you attended, just that you passed your NCLEX and you have an RN license.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

Degree I had from ECPI was just piece of paper, not hands on programs, only presentations even not related to subject. I paid money for internship which was cleaning tables at elementary schools and labor work. when I complained they have no answer. I spent roughly 70k within 2.5 years but even couldn't find $9/hour job either placement service didn't help. no help for certifications. I have paid for certification exams. only people get success who already have a job in this field and just looking for piece or paper. after long time jobless I get DCJS armed certified and working as security guard $17/hour. now I am thinking why I got this suffering and spent money instead of doing job at Wal-Mart etc.

Degree: Medical Administrative/Executive Assistant and Medical Secretary
Graduation Year: 2016

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

Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 2008

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.

Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 2008

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.

Degree: Dental Assisting/Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences and Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

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.

Degree: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

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.
