Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Attending college, especially an accelerated one, is not for everyone. Everyone has their own experience with ECPI. Mine has been a very positive one. I came to ECPI straight off of active duty, and was looking for a career change. The admissions representatives that helped me get everything I needed to make my decision were extremely helpful and did not pressure me at all. Once enrolled my academic advisor was always available to assist with anything I needed. I transferred in enough credits from previous college courses to cut 6 months off of my program. Over the two years I attended school here I encountered some amazing instructors. Not everyone can be a great teacher, but the majority of mine were. These are people who have the real world experience needed to prepare students. A vast majority of them have been working in their respective fields for a long time. I always found the instructors more than willing to help whenever I asked, but they will not hold your hand. That is how the real world operates. I graduated in the spring of 2015 and immediately enrolled in the fall to complete my Graduate degree. I have a job that I love in the field I studied. Overall I would recommend ECPI to individuals who cannot attend a "traditional" college, who are highly motivated and desire to learn, and can handle the pressure that 5 week terms bring.If you come with a positive outlook and the will to succeed, you will succeed here.

Degree: Network Security
Graduation Year: 2009

I attended ECPI University and graduated in 2009. The admissions process was smooth and going through financial aid was also very simple. You will be challenged here. You have to put in the time and effort to succeed during and after school. The school also has a great career services team that assisted me in finding an I.T. position right out of school. I have used the knowledge and skills I learned at ECPI University to be a successful System Administrator, Network Administrator, I.T. Manager and Product Manager.

Degree: Network Security
Graduation Year: 2014

ECPI strengthened my education and career potential upon leaving the military in order for me to achieve a stronger career. I've always been into computers before I attended, When I started I was into build pc's at home and working on my own business. Now I am a systems analyst for Ameristar Casinos. Good luck with your endeavors. Study hard.

Degree: Restaurant/Food Services Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Great experience and staff. I notice that that people who are trying to get a quick degree have issues here because this school actually has standards. I also think its set up for people that may already be working in a certain industry or professionals that want to switch to another industry. I would not recommend this school for students coming straight out of high school unless they are mature enough to for the challenge. Because you will be challenged.

Degree: Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technologies/Technicians, Other
Graduation Year: 2012

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

Degree: Network Security
Graduation Year: 2015

I was stuck on a call center jelp desk job and had been on several job interviews for IT but I didn't have the experience for anything other than low pay entry level ($10 hr). Almost every company wanted a degree and finally a recruiter told me she placed ECPI University graduates all the time. I checked around and tuition was better at ECPI and with the accelerated curriculum I was able to get a 4 year degree in 2.5 years. (almost to the day) I chose night classes but there are day classes too, and it's a career driven school. ECPI isn't just about networking, systems administration and desktop support, but it has career classes that video your interview to prepare you for the job search as you near graduation. ECPI taught me how to job search and network effectively and prepared me for the interviews, While still at ECPI, I left the call center and got into a real IT desktop position. Immediately after graduation I found an IT position that required network admin, systems admin, desktop support and telephony, which now I had. I bettered myself and found the ideal position in less than 3 years! Best decision I ever made!

Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2013

This school was way too expensive, the teachers and classes were a joke. At the clinical sites we just sat around instead of actually being hands on with patients. I regret ever going to this school. I did graduate and was able to get a job, but I also had lots of medical field experience prior to going to ECPI (CNA I, CNA II, Phlebotomy).

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I went to ECPI and have first hand experience that if you take your education seriously you should look elsewhere. They are incredibly unorganized and at my time of attendance were close to losing their accredidation. It was obvious by the way they were losing teachers so quickly. There were teachers that were hired a day before our class started and we spent a month reading a pre made slide for the class. They take forever to return your calls and emails and are not very helpful once you do get ahold of them. It was an all around terrible experience and the students spent the majority of their time there complaining. I was not alone in how I felt towards ECPI.. Save your money and look elsewhere where you will be treated better.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

I am writing this review to help those looking to further their education. Please look at going to a different school. They are highly unorganized and unprofessional in many aspects. You pay 4-5 times more than you would somewhere else. The directors do not have the students best interest in their job description and do not care about any of the students. Most of the teachers are amateurs and unqualified, meaning they have no business fulfilling a position as a teacher. *** Their credits do not transfer to any other school whatsoever. If you start here you will either have to finish here or start over somewhere else. If you start in the LPN program and decide to transfer over into their RN program their credits do not transfer. They require at the end of each term that you take a Kaplan exam, they do not teach you that material. They provide you with a book and tell you, "its all in the book." If you ask any of the teachers about help with the Kaplan they will all tell you they don't even know what's on the exam. This exam will count as 20% of your final grade! The rules change week to week. I am currently halfway through and plan on finishing only because I don't want to have to start completely over. I chose to go here because you don't have to have any pre requisites to enter the LPN program , just pass their TEAS tests and you're in! I wanted to save time, not money. The whole program is 34K!!!! With that being said, I really expected it to be superior and to run like a "well-oiled" machine. It is so condensed that you are not allotted time to eat or sleep. I give 110% into every day and its never enough. The classes are 5 wks a pc and yes I did sign up to work at a "fast pace" but not "rush through" crash courses. You literally feel like you are going to die trying. They lower the standards to get people in and raise them once they have you enrolled. It is a "bait 'n switch" that they have mastered. If you really want to get an idea of what it's like to attend this school just come spend hàlf a day observing and ask the students for yourself. The best area to catch people (wearing scrubs) is on their classtime breaks right outside in the gazebo.

School changes curriculum and grading scale almost every day without notice. Instructors just kill you with power point. Do not ask a question. The DON is very incompetent and demeaning. They changed the Kaplan exit exam score then when students passed the test they wouldn't pay their nursing fee unless they took it again because they had a leak in their system. People loans and government funds paid this school and they can just take people money. Little to they know they all are going down including the program. Some people you just screw over.
