"When I started Laurus College I was homeless and jobless, everyone of my teachers and staff new my situation and did whatever they could to accomodate me while i was attending school. With the help of financial aid I was able to rent a room and maintain that room for a year now.The first year in a half was hard but everyone was supportive and helped me in being able to stay in school and get the proper tools for interviewing and the self confidence i needed to succeed in maintaining on my own. I especially want to thank G.G.for his help in showig me that I was more capable of getting a job than i felt I was he helped me find confdence in myself I didn't know I had and he was someone I felt comftorable with learning from. All my teachers were warm and empathetic towards me they didn't look down on me for being homeless and neither did any of my classmates.. I graduated with a 3.9 GPA and I now have a job where I have room for advancement in the future, If i hadn't of had Laurus College I might not be the person I am now with a bright future a chance to succeed in life."

"Laurus College will help anyone suceed with a new Peer Mentor Program. If you need help they will walk you through the programs. Laurus College leaves no one behind. I would like to say. The tuition is very inexpensive and a great degree. I did not even no how to use a computer when I got there let alone build a computer or fix a computer. I can do both now. I know all the microsoft office suites, IT and Networking with Act.dir. SQL End User, some Linux, command line, deployment, and much much more. So this is the place to start if all the community colleges are full this is a great place to be. Laurus college has a team of individuals working for you all through the program. The classes are five weeks long so the program is accelerated. Laurus gives an individual a lving expense if your income is nothing or low. They are accrediated and other graduate Colleges does accept Laurus Credits. Not all of them but lots them do. Get your AA degree today at Laurus College."

"Great college for older adult looking for a career change. I would be careful and see who takes the credits before going there if you intend on transfering to a four year college. Con, Pros they work with you and its very affordable. A good starting point."

"I did enjoy the school and most of my teachers where good. I was lucky enough to get some hands on knowledge while in school but when I finished school, I struggled to find a job. I got really lucky and found a job as a entry level tech in a local company and within my first week, the experienced tech I work with told me when people looking for a job came in and dropped of their resume and he see's Laurus College on their resume, he doesn't care who you are,he throws it away. He said the school does not prepare you at all for actually working in the field. He said it's a waste of 10,000. Laurus advertises you will find a job straight out school, that's a lie. Unless you already have experience in the industry, finding a job is a struggle. After finishing Laurus I was planning on attending again for Networking, and I asked the tech I work with and he recommended I save my money and teach it to myself."

"I really enjoyed my classes at Laurus College. I always wanted to do something more than just work on cars, and computers was my next choice. My instructors helped me out a lot as a I made my way through my courses and then I started attending online when they started offering that. I'm currently working at a local IT repair shop and I'm thinking of going back to Laurus to get an Associate Degree so I can learn Networking too."

"Im attending the school currently and from what goes on its fairly easy process theres homework but when i reviewed the teachers the only education 95 percent of them had was their degree from Laurus College and well its not the best thing to boast about if you have no other education yet your teaching people who are paying in the thousands for teaching that they hope to recieve a job in. The only people i clearly saw education on was the medical billing teachers one has 20 years the other has about 15 and the main person that runs the program has had a great deal of education and experience. They know what the students will typically be dealing with and can steer you in the right direction. But thats the teachers for the school...uh i dont think they help you find a job as much as they say they do. This girl was asked that question because she said shes graduating soon and she said no one has mentioned anything. So if you plan on going here and thinking you will get a job from the 3d Graphics or as a computer tech. I highly doubt it. As for the Medical Billing and Microsoft well the microsoft classers are teaching you how to use Word, Excel and the others which if you want to be receptionist is good. The only thing is to get the degree its about 26 thousand if my memory is right and really if you went to calpoly online or even to cuesta college classes you would save yourself so much money. If you have no where else that will convience you try here, but the business ive met havent even heard of Laurus."
