Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is very money driven they do not care about there students. There staff is very unprofessional and not very supportive in at the location I was at. The upper administration does not care to speak to the students when they have an issue so that open door policy is a bunch of bull crap.

Degree: Dental Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Please don't go here... you can research everything they teach you online AND get your board test done on your own. TOTAL EXPENSIVE SCAM. Then when you graduate they call you every day to see if you have found a job just so career services can get a money credit... this school is too expensive for what the teach you. A community college degree is the SAME and way less... I ended up owing 17,000 for 16 months... WITH government assistance.

Degree: Mechanics and Repairers, General
Graduation Year: 2017

I would just like to say a lot of reviews I have read on this school have been complete different than my own experience. I attend the online degree program and it is extremely intense. Yes, ECPI is not a very selective school, however once you are admitted you are essential on academic probation. Depending on how well you are doing in your classes you will have to check in with your advisor at least once a month. All of my teachers have had masters degrees in the subjects of the courses I have taken. They are very knowledgeable and always available via phone, email or even video chat. There are weekly quizzes and projects that build from the first week of the course until the last week so you develop a deep understanding of the subject. Grades are not handed out at all. It is the schools online policy that late submissions are deducted by 10 points per day (or per week I'm not sure which it is). You can't just say whatever you want on the boards and get an A. You also cannot fake your way through the timed multiple choice quizzes that are weekly. It is a difficult school where I feel I am learning a lot and I am given a lot of help along the way. Regarding the admissions faculty, career services and financial aid...I have had a negative experience. They can be condescending and unprofessional. However the student advisors are wonderful. Please do no let bad experiences with admissions or career services deter you from the school. The professors are extremely experienced and helpful. I would suggest reaching out to professors instead of career services.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

The advertisement says it all, "ECPI University is the best Decision I ever made". I returned to school after being out of the formal education system for 30 years. I was looking for a career change after losing my job in manufacturing after 22 years. I looked at several state schools, and looked at the local technical colleges, none of them seemed interested in helping a 50 year old return to school. I stopped at ECPI for their career discovery day to see what they had to offer. I was greeted by a knowledgeable staff, I felt very comfortable talking to the admissions representative. I was introduced to the faculty and staff for the Computer Information Science program and was immediately impressed with knowledge and background of the staff. I completed two Bachelor’s Degrees through ECPI and the career services staff guided me through the job search process. All of my classmates and I are now employed thanks to ECPI University. I would recommend ECPI University to anyone looking for a great education. Hands on, career focused, excellent education.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2003

My experience at ECPI was great. The administration was particularly wonderful as they actually explained the financial aid and any other questions you had. Additionally I had a medical issue while attending and they went above and beyond to keep me on schedule to graduate on time. I have since went on to acquire my Bachelors in Computer Science at one of the top rated private colleges in South Carolina. I feel that ECPI gave me a great start and a well rounded education in Information Technology. The hands on portion was exceptionally beneficial and having instructors that had real-world experience that could describe situations from their jobs.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2002

Before attending ECPI, I already had a BS in a different field. I decided to change my career and attend ECPI. The quality of the education I received was outstanding. The instructors were knowledgeable and went out of their way to help you when needed. There are no shortage of technology resources to learn from. ECPI also has a multitude of recourses to help you attain a job after graduation. I'm proud of the education I received from ECPI and wouldn't be where I am today without it. I highly recommend the University.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended the Va. Beach Medical Careers Institute campus. I found that you get out of the education experience what you put into it. Yes, some classes where harder than others. Yes, some instructors are harder than others, but you have to adapt to each situation and make the best possible outcome possible. This is exactly what you have to do in the selected field you will work in. No one cares about the reasons you can't, they want to know how you will. I have no complaints about ECPI/MCI, I got exactly what I expected from the program. My Director and Instructors expertly prepared me for the field of medicine I was studying for. Thank You ECPI/MCI.

Degree: Dental Assisting/Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Upon coming to ECPI, I was immediately embraced with a warm sense of belonging. The staff and faculty were of the highest caliber. The students, whether young or not so young were accepted by one another as equals on a level learning field. The instruction given was well explained and consistent with the course syllabus. The amount of knowledge that was available to be tapped into was astounding. I attended the Dental Program and could not have been more pleased with the attention given to every detail of the curriculum. The hands on training that I received prepared me real world encounters as a Dental Assistant. I would strongly urge anyone thinking of attending ECPI to make the move and sign up today.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2012

I loved the accelerated program. Our professor did a great job integrating things we had previously learned throughout the program since it was such a fast pace. The best part of the degree is the externship. What better way to get hands on experience? My externship led to a full time position within my field before I even graduated. I think the most important thing is that you will only get out of the program what you put into it. I would recommend this program!

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I could go on and on about this place, but I'll try not to sound like a commercial. All of my life I have learned what I need to know just so that I can pass a test. I didn't expect it to be any different when I enrolled in MCI. Now that I have been working in the healthcare field, I see how different this education was. The material was relevant and current. Most importantly, the teaching was like nothing I have ever experienced before. I actually learned it. I still know it. Any type of learner on any level can benefit from this school and this program. The thought, concern, and effort put into this program and its students is obvious and extremely appreciated. I am very proud of my degree, and I loved my experience at the school. I will always be grateful for the education I received. As far as tuition rates, let's be real! Every single student is given a breakdown before he or she is enrolled. Loans are explained before they are given. Everyone has to sign the entrance counseling form before accepting the loan. I am not sure why people are using this outlet to complain about the cost. Schedule an appointment to get some information. Meet with the director. Talk to some HCA students! Ask any of them. I am confident that you will hear all of what I have just said.
