LPN Bridge Program - 6/5/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019
"This school is horrible please do not waste your time with this school, its a bunch of lies ,the instructors are horrible they dont want to teach you and are very childish .They are not for the students at all they are money driven ,please dont waste $40,000.00 on this school go elsewhere and do your research before hand or you will make the worst mistake of your life. This program is accelerated so you are literally cramming information in just 5 weeks which is extremely hard when some instructors dont teach you its self taught. This bridge program was a lie when I first signed up they said it will take 8 months to get my RN after the LPN and now it switched to 12months and the program changes daily. They are very unorganized,unprofessional and more I dont recommend this school at all they need to shut it down ."

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016
"All they care about is money and will say anything to get you in. I was advised not to put ecpi on my resume as it will have a negative impact on any chances you have to secure a decent job. Do yourself a favor and go for the Cisco or Palo Alto Networks Certifications. It felt like these students were people on work release and they had to do something while they were out and so they went here. Pros: None Zero Nothing Cons: Too many to list"

Ms K Battle - 5/16/2019
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2020
"From day 1 of starting class i have had bad experiences with them about my financial aid. I have attended for 3 terms and passed every class, they did not provide a stipend at all... Then they took me out of my classes without telling me. I got that straight, then when i decided to ask about a stipend they told me my stipend was cancelled because i dropped my classes which is a lie! They dropped me from my classes because i asked for money... Someone told me do not go to this school and i did not listen.. A waste of time and a waste of my financial aid! They are so unprofessional its a shame.. This is 1 school i regret attending"

Robert - 5/14/2019
Degree: RN to BSN
Graduation Year: 2018
"First impression was awful. Admissions staff are rude and they act as if you are a nucence with the exception of one very nice lady. Cant remember her name but blonde with a sweet southern accent. She was the ONLY one who returned calls and genuinely seemed to care. Fast program and no one seems to have much time to have much time to help if struggling. Dean is grouchy and doesnt like to be bothered. A few good teachers but seemed overwhelmed. Very expensive and financial aid not helpful. A take it or leave it attitude. I do not recommend if other options available. Teach to NCLEX."

FutureNurse - 5/13/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020
"I still attend this school and I love it. I feel like my advisor and the faculty care. This is an accelerated program. You have 5 weeks for each course. Memorization is required for some material, but it will be hard if you do not Understand the material and make connections with real world things. Its the same at any school you go to. Every college I've went to has told students to do outside research to make connections. The grading standards are high. Do you want a nurse caring for you or a loved one who only had to make the bare minimum D to pass? Or someone who had to work their butt of for an A or B in EVERY course or they'd have to repeat it? Many students drop out because of high demands. If you miss one day, its hard to catch up so in the winter a lot of flu goes around because no one wants to fail. But I love my school. And will be taking the RN and the RN to BSN once I'm done with LPN. My goal is to be a NP."

Michael W - 3/27/2019
Degree: Network Security
Graduation Year: 2019
"Overall, this is a great school to obtain a noteable degree by paying way less then what you would at a brick and mortar college. However, you most likely will not gain the knowledge needed to obtain a 70,000+ a year job right out of the gate. I hav ebeen a student here for about 3 years now, and from what I have observed, there are way to many courses that you have to take that are not relevant to your degree. For instance, I major in Networking, and have only taken 3 or 4 classes that were pretty beneficial to my career. I often feel like ECPI is holding me back from obtaining certifications since it takes a lot of my time and energy. This school is very fast paced, and especially with Math classes, it is difficult to learn so many concepts in just 5 weeks. I would definitely recommend this school though! It has gotten me to a great place in my career."

nursing1O1 - 2/12/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018
"I graduated from ECPI with a degree in nursing through their accelerated program in Orlando. Although I was well prepared for the nursing world and NCLEX, it was mostly up to me to do so because the instructors are not very good, and some are downright clueless. They also pass certain students (who failed) just to keep their grant status....many of the students I graduated with will not make good nurses. They love your money though! PS- they also lie quite a bit. Some classmates wanted to start the nurse practitioner program but were told that the school changed their requirements from what we were told at the beginning of our program."

Former Student - 1/22/2019
Degree: Network Security
Graduation Year: 2019
"Char location has a few good instructors but majority of the courses are taught mostly by two instructors. One instructor on majority days will sit and look at their iPad/MacBook for the entire 5 hours... and the other will talk more about his own educational pursuits or issues. I drove 30+ minutes daily in traffic, only to arrive and be told I can work on my homework. I personally have laptops, desktop pc and iPads, I do not need to drive and fight traffic to go to class to do my homework. For the amount of money that accelerated schools cost over all, and this school costs, the instructors should be lecturing something EVERYDAY. No excuse. Its laziness, and I wasted valuable time. Im not former Military so I have to pay for my education. I feel that ECPI Char, relies on the fact that they get a lot of Former Military, and most come into the school already knowing a lot due to their training, but if you dont have that, and your actually coming to learn 1st hand at ECPI Char, your not gonna get that. The instructors that I considered to be good, were usually part time, so you didnt get them for a lot of classes. The two main ones that dont, you would get for the majority of your classes. Also if you break any rules intentionally or unintentionally, you get suspended for an entire term, which means more time and of course more money. The length of time should definitely not be so long, considering you will probably wont get to repeat that class for a year..ECPI Char, your complacent and you need to do better."

JC - 1/3/2019
Degree: Cybersecurity
Graduation Year: 2018
"I have my Bachelor's from ECPI too, but I found the MS Cyber Security program a worthwhile challenge! The course load was no joke, and I learned an enormous amount of practical information that immediately has taken my career to a new level. Since I got my BS in 2015, I've more than doubled my income thanks to the new opportunities each degree has opened for me. I'm a vet, and I used the GI Bill both degrees. I never had a single issue with enrollment, admin, or financial aid. The 5-week courses are great for those working full time, but don't be fooled, you'll do and learn a lot in those 5 weeks. If you're a self-starter, motivated learner, then I can't recommend ECPI enough."
