Do not waste your time with this place, they will promise you everything and get you nothing. My class waited till our second 5 weeks before we got most of our supplies, teachers all leave. Had two out of all that actually taught me something. You'll never get the job they say you will, career services does nothing to help. I have requested transcripts to be sent to my current college and almost 2 months later, they still don't have them. My advice to you is RUN LIKE HELL! Do not let them talk you into it with all their promises, nothing will happen. The only good thing I took from here was some great friends I made in my class.
After 25+ years as a Medical Assistant, 20 of those years as a medical biller (8 ) which I ran a billing company near the shore and (12) my own billing company in NJ which I am certified through the DOBI. (Department of Banking & insurance) In late 2016, I became a widow. Most recently, I decided to go back to school to update my education and credentials. I am not fluent in ICD-10 or EMR. I learned the old school way of billing. My goal is to be a CPC ICD-10 and get my AHIMA credentials as well. I did a lot of research and found that in my locality there are not many choices for billers/coders to physically go to school. Most are only offered online. I prefer a class room, and I didn't want to 2 year college class and to travel over 1 hour each way daily. I wanted something that was obtainable in 1 year. I researched Harris School of Business. I didn't just read reviews. I talked to local people, I went to the school several times armed with a list of questions. At my age I felt this was probably my last chance to update my education and get a great job. It's not all about the money at my age, although I need a pay check. But I need good benefits and a pension, paid sick time and vacation. After the loss of a spouse that was sick for 10 years I had nothing left, no retirement, no income and no business and no longer good health insurance unless I wanted to pay $1600.00 per month. (my choice to take care of my spouse) I also had to down size and sell my home of 24 years. I was now faced with what am I going to do about my future. I decided through talking to my grown sons (good advise) to continue in the field were I was most knowledgeable, billing and taking care of others. So I am now pursuing the last half of my life. I am not as young as I was 20 years ago and yes it's hard, but hard work = reward. (now 56 y/o) I can not say enough about my instructor @ Harris/Linwood, NJ she is top notch!! she is patient and kind and caring and believe me she knows her stuff when it comes to this industry, she makes you feel that regardless of how old or young you are, that through hard work and dedication YOU CAN SUCCEED!!! it's up to you. You get what you put into things and yes I understand that Life happens. No one is going to sugar coat things or hold your hand, if that's what you are looking for then perhaps this isn't for you. We are adults, these classes can tough, but it's obtainable. You need to be dedicated first to yourself and you will have success. I am sorry for my long winded post. I am so looking forward to graduating and getting a great job with a hospital system, perhaps even going back to work for myself someday. The skies the limit !!! Good Luck to you all. a fellow student at Harris School of Business Linwood, NJ.
Horrible school, unprofessional, all they care about is your money. I do not recommend. I don't know what I was thinking when I signed up. Everyone lies and twist words. For yourself, don't come go to this school. Do yourself a favor. I have 0 knowledge .
I attended Harris 2008-2009! I was a newly single mom that had no career and was tired of working jobs to barely make ends meet! My best friend referred me there and I started right away! I love my career and it has opened so many doors for me!! I owe it all to Harris!
I went to HSB in Danbury, and graduated with a 98%. I have never ever graduated with a 98 in anything in my life! But my instructor made me feel like I could do anything! So far I can say that my overall experience at the Danbury Campus was a pleasure. My day class teacher was not only knowledgeable, but at the same time inspirational. I loved going to class. Loved my instructor's accent (she is from Brazil), love, respect and understanding for other cultural backgrounds. Everybody in my class felt welcomed. We all became a small family!
Cherryhill Harris school was very disappointing, between teachers that don't explain rite or they just sit there doing nothing, not teaching right, not explaining right and internship was a joke. They sent me to terrible places that are very disrespectful towards you.. I feel like I didn't get good education...terrible school don't go there..
Please don't go to this school I attended the one in Dover Delaware and they make you think there's a lot jobs offers they have for the students. But this is not true they never got me an interview no where, all the interviews I had I achieved them on my own. You are not prepared for the Coding exam they discourage you for taking the five hour test. There are no jobs available to you. Some students drop out because they see the future not promising a career as a Health Claims Specialist. The course cost $18,000 for Health Claims specialist please take my advice go to Del Tech. you will be more successful there.
I attended the Wilmington, DE campus, and I graduated in 2013. I had tremendous support; the staff treated me like family. My teachers really helped me to retain all the information and skills that I needed to become a successful Dental Assistant. My extern site I chose was at a dental office in Hampton, VA. The dentist I worked for ended up hiring me after I completed my externship. I really enjoyed the hands on experiences both in class and in the dental office. I greatly appreciate the teachers and staff that pushed me to reach my full potential and wouldnt let me quit. (Mrs. Jones, Ms. Judy, Doc. Bev, Ms. Sue, Ms. Crystal and Ms. Keicha) Thank you all for everything, I would not be where I am today without you.
I absolutely love the school not only did I finish school with all A' s. I got my certification before I even went to extern!! I enjoyed all of the staff they are awesome i learned some very good skills while i was there. If you really want to change your career I recommend going to Harris they treat you like family. If u want to be productive you have to want it you have to strive for the best. Harris school of business was a awesome choice I made and I wouldn't change it if I could.....
I am still looking for work!!!! I graduated in 2016, was told you'll get this job--just show up. Well I did, went in early, stayed late and the girl told me that the doctor never hires a student from HARRIS only uses them to file and do filing. When I called to switch sites I was told no. I spent 16k to learn to file. I am still at my previous job (cashier). They never call you back and all the good teachers are gone!!!!!!! This place is a joke and I am so very sorry I went to them. The girls on the westside was right--this place is a joke and only want your money. From what I hear, the teachers they have now are not real teachers, not one of them are certified or experienced. DON'T GO HERE!!! THEY ONLY WANT TO MAKE YOU PAY A LARGE STUDENT BILL AND LAUGH AT YOU BEHIND CLOSE DOORS.
