"I am taking online courses and a lot of the professors don't teach! We have to read different chapters every week which is fine but when we have zoom meeting which is our weekly lecture, they literally read everything we read in the books from a power point. That's not teaching. A lecture is not reading from slides. I got most of my education from YouTube. I really self taught myself a lot of the material without the help of most professors."

"I graduated in the year 2021 with a BS EET. It is my personal opinion that ECPI University is the best educational institution in the world. It has the best setup for a potential student who is "serious" about getting an education in their field of choice. The scheduling for classes is very unique in its structure and time frame and very accommodating, depending on what the student can handle. The classroom environment does not allow for any distractions that would hamper the student from having the best learning experience possible. Since ECPI is making it possible for the student to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in 2.5 years, just like the TV commercials say, this will make the student work for his or her degree to a point that they will have little time for anything else until the 2.5 years is over. With a week off for Christmas and Independence Day, it is not a college designed for a student who cannot manage their time very well, so, it is either sink or swim. With that said, there are points to be made here for those of you considering ECPI University as a viable source of education. The Professors there are very accommodating and will help you with anything you need, to a point that you can contact them at home and get any question you have answered, whether it be with homework, writing assignments, or other things. These facts alone do not allow for a questionable personal lifestyle, which means, you must have your life outside of the college to be "in order" for the student to put in the adequate amount of time and personal effort for your graduation to be possible. When I made the decision to go with ECPI, I made sure my personal life and finances were in order to graduate. I made the decision to be unemployed for the duration of the 2.5 years, while I was in school. The G.I. Bill does pay the rent. This is the payback from giving 20 years of service to my country. Thanks to Jesus for that. This made going to school my job for that amount of time. I only had 3 years to go until my G.I. Bill would expire, and so, I really had no choice but to go this route (Jesus works in mysterious ways). Once I made the decision to attend, I was glad that I did. If I had it all to do again, I would choose ECPI University again, for sure. This brings up another point; if you are the type of student who is going to school here just to pay the rent with your G.I. Bill and you are there just to fill a seat, then please consider other options. First of all, you are setting a bad example for the rest of the military who represent something with better personal character than that. Not only are you cheating yourself out of a potential education but you are wasting the staff's time by doing so. Stop setting a bad example for the rest of us who actually care about getting an education and giving the military a bad reputation. Also, if you are there in class after a 2.5 year period, and you think it is OK just to barely pass your classes and graduate, think again. Employers that are wise will ask for your transcripts before you get hired just to see if you are a legitimate student or not. If you are a slacker at college, then chances are you will be a slacker on the job as well. Do your best to graduate with honors, even if you do not make the honor roll, at least you could say that you gave it your best shot. Anybody could live with that. As a result, I am employed at a company that I consider my home now and I will probably stay with until I retire, thanks to the Raleigh Human Resources Staff (Thanks to Jesus, my Saviour, first and foremost). OK, I am off of my soapbox now. Lastly, I wanted to say hello to all the staff at ECPI University in Raleigh, NC. Thanks to them for everything they have done for me. Take care and God bless."

"Overall, everyone will encounter different experiences, that's just life. Your education is what you make out of it and how much effort you put in. ECPI is legitimate a great school for the right price and structured. If your a slacker who does not want to put in work, don't even bother. ECPI was a great experience."

"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."

"My experience at ECPI University was absolutely outstanding! Not only was I able to get the technical degree online that I wanted but I did so while still performing my duties as an Alaska Air National Guardsman. This meant that during the week I would report to my Unit for duty and at night and on the weekends I would do my coursework. This very flexible solution allowed me to balance family life, work and school without compromising any of them. Often times, I was able to perform work duties while accomplishing my coursework. In December of 2012, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Electronics Engineering Technology which allowed me to seek a commissioning opportunity in my organization. This means that after completing 13 years of service as an enlisted man I was able to commission and become an Officer. With my degree I was able to transition from being a technically knowledgeable operator into being a leader of my peers and of course to obvious added benefit of better pay and retirement. ECPI is dedicated to the success of their students. Every curriculum professor I came into contact with made a very clear effort to each student to ensure full comprehension of the material and objectives. At no time did I feel that I was left behind, there was always a fellow student or instructor to lend an ear or offer assistance no matter what the hurdle was. Because of my use of ECPI's accelerated degree program I was able to accomplish a four year Bachelors Degree in just under 18 months. ECPI also uses an online text book application that allows the students to access the applicable text book, read it, search it and print pages. This option is great for somebody who has no want or need to purchase the hardcopy version of the books. ECPI also gave me access to a discount for testing and certification purposes, which meant that I could accomplish certifications while working on the material I was certifying on. This is an invaluable benefit for someone who works in IT or Cybersecurity. Being a student at ECPI also meant that I had access to all sorts of counseling options in the event of academic stress or outside stressors. It also meant that as a student, I had discounted options to purchase books and other academic materials to include a computer when mine stopped working. My experience with ECPI was so rewarding and enjoyable that not only have I volunteered to be a mentor to prospective students but I have also recently been offered the opportunity to return as a Graduate Student in seeking a Masters of Science Degree in Cybersecurity. I cannot wait to return to ECPI not only as an Alumni but as a Grad student, which is pretty amazing for somebody who at one time never would have thought he would even go to college. A tremendous Thank You goes out to the professional men and women of ECPI! See you soon!"

"I didn't think that anything like this would come from graduating from ECPI. With all the stories you hear about not getting jobs or not being able to get a job in your field I am quite surprised. I was able to find a job in my field that appreciates my education and actually takes my education into play and allows me to teach guys that have been there for years about how things haven't been done right in the past. When you can bring knowledge to the table and show exactly why something is working the way it is and show them there is a simpler fix it makes the degree worth it because you have the skills to be a highly functional team member."

"I graduated from ECPI University with a BSEET in 2010. I received a great education while others did not, and that was of my own doing. ECPI is a great school, but you have to be ready to work really hard to be successful. The classes are five weeks long and you have to consume A LOT of information very quickly and prove that you've learned that information at the end of each class. The work load is what kills many people, but, if you complete it successfully you'll be as qualified as anyone from any other school. I work along side colleagues from UNCC, VT, GT, NC State and Clemson, and my level of responsibility and my salary proves that I'm as qualified as any of them."

"I chose ECPI over the traditional four year colleges and that was a big mistake. The school was accredited for the general education but the engineering program did not have the ABET accreditation which I didn't know about until a semester before graduation. because of this I am not able to qualify for any type of engineering jobs including engineering technician and helper positions, sometimes I don't even get a chance to submit my application. it may still help those that already have an engineering degree and I've seen students with military training go on to get engineering jobs but this school is not for anyone looking for a career change or their first degree."

"ECPI streamlined my education in order for me to achieve a brighter future. I've had an understanding before I attended; however, my perspective has broadened immensely. When I started, I was a software engineer for a government contracting company. Now I am the electrical engineer for a naval/marine training center. Good luck on your journey. Study effectively"

"I studied EET online while I was on active duty. I transferred in 40 credits from another school, and while taking one class at a time, it took me about 2.5 years to graduate. I feel like I received a great education. Some classes were easy and others challenging, but you get what you put in. I never had any issues with financial services, and they got my military TA and GI Bill processed with ease. Career Services was amazingly helpful. I got several of job offers from around the country through their network. I decided to stay in my local area, but now I've got a great job that is closely related to my degree and military experience."

"There are some good and lots of bad with this school. First, most of the teachers are pretty good. The classes are easy if you apply yourself and do the work. Also, the class scheduling worked well with my work schedule. Now the bad. Although I am sure most of the department heads are good, mine was not. When I asked for programming classes I received networking classes which have not helped me in the robotics field. I was forced to learn on my own which is what you hope to avoid when payin so much for school. Next, it took me three, yes three, years to receive my diploma after graduation. Apparently the administration at my campus failed to turn in my paperwork after I scrambled around to get multiple signatures. Because of the failure by the administration, i was placed on graduation hold without being informed. I finally received my diploma and realized my name is not correct. Now I have to go back around the merry go round again to figure out how to get this corrected."
