"I am very satisfied with my experience with ECPI online. They may not accept all of your credits, but that is because you ONLY have to get 120 credits to get your BS degree, not 180 like Kaplan or UOP, so there aren't as many classes to compare for. You can go to other places and get more credit, but I bet the cost will be more! For the cost, the services, getting help finding a job and having an accredidated degree, it can't be beat!!! I am very happy and would definitely suggest online classes with ECPI."

"I started an online program with them, after they told me they would take all my military credits. I ended up paying for the classes they said I didn't have to take. They also made me sign a contract so I couldn't withdraw. The base rep didn't seem to be on the same page as the main office. I would not ever tell anyone to go to this school. They are expensive, and lack in their online degree graphics, and are way behind in web design. Their online class was hard to navigate, and very generic. I would expect more from a technology school."

"ECPI has been great. Be prepared to learn and do homework. This school has an innovative way they do their semesters. They divide a 15 week semester into three, five week terms. I have gone to a local 2yr community college and find ECPI to be more than competitive and easier to work with. Small private schools are the way to go! They will actively help you find grants and loans to help you pay for tuition. Now that ECPI has received the SACS accreditation they have stepped up to a whole new level of excellence within their academia. Most of my instructors are PhD's. I hope this will help those on the fence. Good luck!"

"I really enjoyed the fact that I was able to get a college education from the comfort of my own home. Due to my work schedule a traditional campus was not an option for me and I thought I would never be able to get a college degree and then to find I could get one in less than 2 years was a dream come true.The books were mailed right to my door. The books were very informative to the courses that I was taking. I am not sure if its the same for all schools but our courses were only 5 weeks long. In reality how are you going to learn everything you need to know about a subject in 5 weeks? Several classes we were to read 3 chapters in 1 week, have assignments, discussion posts, and a test. All of the courses were really rushed. I made good grades only because the book was wide open the whole time. So much information with very little time to grasp it. There were discussion boards which allowed us to talk to our classmates. Another thing I didn't like was they gave you projects as a team. I we have different lifestyles, study habbits, and live all over the world how can we work on a project together. One class I had to contact my instructor and ask that one person be removed from my team because they was not doing their part and couldn't be contacted. It wasn't write for them to get a grade for something they didn't contribute in. I did learn a bits of information on a variety of subjects but not as much as I should have for the price it cost me. I took beginner, intermediate, and advanced MS Office. Made a 4.0 in all courses. I went to take the test to get certified for Word and Excel and failed both tests twice. After failing they asked me what did I feel was the problem. I told them the questions on the certification test wasn't taught in my class. In reality they picked out stuff to teach you and the rest you have to learn on your own because the classes were only 5 weeks long. After graduating I am now going back over my courses one by one and actually reading the text books to learn what I didn't learn in school. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA and to think there is so much that I don't know that I should. ECPI is more less concentrating on people getting their degree ASAP and sooner than other colleges, which is important to most people. I now look back and wish I had chosen a different school that the courses were longer to give me time to actually learn the material before moving on to something else. This was an expensive price to pay for something I am not happy with. I kinda feel like it was a waste of my time. I am now searching into other colleges online so that I can continue my education but I am more educated now than I was then about what is best for me and my future needs."
