"Don’t waste your money. I was told I was enrolled in school with the Purple Heart waiver program just to find that the school can’t accept it and that they had drained whatever was left in my GI bill account and Hoped to use my pell grant money after that ran out. I received a bill from the VA stating the school had accepted more than they were entitled to because they sucked that account dry, and now I’m paying the bill. They refuse to help me figure out the problem and have been avoiding me for months. This is not my first college experience; I have two prior degrees and only enrolled to help bolster up my marketability. I’m coming out with debt, no degree and a lot of headaches. Some of their staff will tell you that it’s a horrible school and that they know they’re doing wrong by their students. Even without the financial issues, the education is horrible. You’re pretty much on your own."

"I really wish I had paid better attention to the poor reviews. After being told that after I graduated I would be assisted in finding employment for Medical Billing & Coding and make great money! I just wanted to better myself! WRONG! After graduated it was as though I didn't exist. I had to reach out to find who was suppose to be assisting me only to be sent links for jobs on indeed, like I hadn't applied to ALL of those! I was also told that I should not apply for Medical Billing & Coding jobs, but entry level..$10.00-$12.00 /hr jobs! THAT IS NOT WHAT SIGNED UP FOR! I was then offered the opportunity to further my education, giving me a better stance for employment by going back in for my associates degree. Are you kidding me?! Not only am I now in debt in student loans for a skill that I can't even find employment for but the calls don't stop! They keep calling me, even on my sons phone, trying to get me to sign up and go into even more debt. The student loan I now have to pay back is taking food off my table! Please beware of this "school" . Pay attention to the negative reviews."

"After being out of school for almost 20 years. I can't believe I'm back but from the beginning with my initial sign up to get back in school everyone made it very easy. After my first month I did want to quite but with the emails I get from the admissions staff from our program director and even from the professors help encourage me everyday to come back. Now that I am half way there I want to see it to the end and I thank all the amazing staff and AMAZING new friends that I also gained."

"I have went to this college and it has be great the half of the time that I was there. They were supportive and helpful in letting you succeed until they just did not want to have anything to do with you at the end. The career services sent me to two medical sites to do my externship and I have learned nothing. Those sites were only wanting to do the work that they wanted to do and not help you learn anything about their system. I should have spoke up, but I was lost to begin with and everyone doing their jobs that I felt that I shouldn't bother them. Think thoroughly before attending this college and if you do, keep on going until the end. If you keep withdrawing from classes, then they don't want nothing to do with you."

"I have done very well after graduating from FTC, but this is the exception, not the norm. Most of my classmates have either disappeared or do not work in the field (Medical Coding). I did not find the career assistance to be helpful even in the slightest. I did not receive one referral, interview or even a lead from career assistance. When you graduate from here you are on your own. I also had one instructor who was clearly out of her depth on the subject of health insurance. Having been in the field for over four years now, I am still irritated at the complete lack of guidance on one of the most important aspects of medical billing and coding. But the one thing that really demonstrates exactly how much FTC cares about you, the item that identifies exactly where you as alumni stand, is that I get calls about three times a year asking me if I am interested in attending their Medical Billing and Coding Program. I must tell the poor telemarketing sap that I graduated from the course. Really disheartening to get those calls. That being said, if you are considering medical coding as a career I urge you to pursue it and get your CPC or CCS certification. The field is expanding and opportunities abound!"
