"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."

"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 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."

"I completed the associates and was awarded with my degree. After relocating with the military, my degree was misplaced. I have called the college and I also paid for the release of another copy of the diploma. I purchased this copy of my degree almost a year ago. I have contacted everyone that I could possibly contact and I am finally giving up. The moral of the story is that after you achieve the degree, and relocate, the amount of assistance of getting anything achieved won't happen. Also, I was supposed to get waivers for my Certs and I kept on explaining that the reason I chose this college was because they assisted you with waivers for the certs. I explained to the personnel that the same time that I exit the military, is the same time I obtain my associates degree. They seemed to understand at the time, however they did not set the classes that I needed so that the vouchers became available and I end up exiting the college without the first certification and where I relocated to, there is not a school in my state. When I explained this, I was told that I can travel to the campus in "North Carolina" to use the waivers/vouchers which is a hundred miles to use something that they were supposed to give me in the first place. I AM SORRY THAT I EVER ATTENDED"
