ECPI University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (110)
I was extremely pleased with the quality of education received from this school. The Charleston, SC campus is well located and the staff does an excellent job supporting the students. There were never any issues with financial services that I experienced but I did hear some stories from others. One thing I was dissapointed about was they did not give me credit for any of the military training I received during my 20 year career. Instructors do a good job bringing experience from the commercial sector to class. If you put forth the effort you will do very well, the decision worked out great for me!
The lpn program is $35000!!! And is 14 months long. I honestly thought someone made a mistake someone got the numbers wrong. The national average for the lpn program is $17000 with programs as short as 10 months. Please review the schools and costs first before making any agreements.
Ecpi financial aid department is horrible. I was told one day before graduation that I wouldn't be able to receive my diploma due to a remaining balance on my account. The sad part is three weeks before graduation I had to sign a loan form for a disbursement of $7,000 for one five week class. This college is a rip off and I wish I never attended this place.
What a disaster the dental department is becoming. Hiring new teacher and literally just throwing them in. It's insane what our 5 hours in class is spent on in a LAB!!... Watching her text, look at Facebook, listening to her talk about her kids and boyfriend, music, cars, and never nothing said about x-rays that we were trying to learn on our own without an instructor. I'm confused on the subject i have a state board in, why I pay so much tuition and literally waste time and money, and why she was even paid for today. And this isn't just today. 3rd class with this woman I hoped she just needed to get her legs under her, but no she's young and really just doesn't care at all. This is ridiculous! I would love to know who I could actually speak to about this because it's insane the things I hear in this class instead of what I'm paying for.
ECPI is a great college. I will be done with my bachelor's in three months. It took two years for me to finish because of credits transferring. I'm even thinking about getting my masters at ECPI. I would recommend this college to anyone looking to further their education!
Expectations were never met, and the amount of money for the program is outrageous compared several other colleges. Unprepared, unprofessional, uncoordinated, unorganized and in all not a good experience. Save your time and money and choose any other school.
ECPI University is a great choice for individuals who work full time and utilize time management. The school provides 3 different schedules that are likely to meet your needs. Morning classes Monday through Thursday, evening classes Monday through Thursday, or a hybrid schedule. The hybrid schedule is two days out of the week. Friday night and Saturday morning, everything else is done online. Utilizing the hybrid schedule I went from no credits to a bachelor's degree in only 2 years and 1 month. I have now transferred to another college to pursue a masters degree and thanks to ECPI University I will have achieved a masters in less than 4 years.
As a veteran who was running out of time with their own GIBill I was incredibly in awe of my school's ability to help me sustain it to the fullest. The faculty, staff and FA Advisors were incredibly knowledgeable in their areas of expertise and able to assist me with minimal to no issue. I was able to succeed even in courses where I surely thought I'd never get through with the assistance of their tutoring programs and with help from Career Services and my Program Director, I was able to find a full-time position before I even graduated that worked with my schedule and then began paying me twice as much as I'd ever expected to make fresh out of college. ECPI is one of the best decisions I have ever made and they didn't have to pay ME to say that because I honestly couldn't be in a better place than I am right now without their help. Thanks!
If you're a veteran and you're trying to maximize your Post 911 GI Bill or Montgomery GI Bill, please stay away from this school. Veteran rates are thru the roof but not so much for active duty personnel. I was charged $6,000 a year for room and board and I am still trying to figure out why, if this school does not provide said services. You are better off going to a traditional college/university! The EET and MET programs are not ABET accredited which means that, if you do not have any type of engineering or technical experience (both civilian or military) there's a high probability that you will be overlooked for any engineering position(s) that you may apply for. Remember, it's a Technology degree and not an Engineering degree. If you don't mind wasting something that you have earned (especially if you've risked your life in the combat zone) then by all means give ECPI a try, your experience may be different than mine. Now to the instructors. I will tell you that if you decide to give ECPI a shot, you will notice very quickly who's there to teach, be there for the students; and who's there for a paycheck. I have made some great relationships at this school, but this is a review and I am giving you all my unbiased and honest assessment! I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and hope that you'll actually do some research. A little research goes a long way!
ECPI's schedule worked for me . The 2.5 years to Bachelors degree is true. I finished in less than 24 months because of previous credits. Lots of hands on and good instruction. Now working at defense contractor and looking to get Masters. Best decision.
