"Don’t go to Lincoln tech in Shelton ct. they change their policies every second. In my fourth mod midway though they changed their grading policies when it came to ATI grade scale. They took the scale away so everybody’s avg dropped to where you couldn’t pass. Three senators and the ct higher education is investigating the school. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL."

"Wishing that I read these reviews before going there. They do not care about their student. Teachers and the office are the same, not caring. Only thinking about their profit. Student are failing, they do not care. They are confusing in the teaching styles. Student have to self teaching."

"I would not recommend coming here for medical coding and billing. Save your money and go to a better school. Some teachers are fantastic, but the curriculum is an absolute mess. Not enough tools or resources. It is pretty much like going to high school."

"Seeing what others offer, I regret coming to Lincoln. There are way too many students in each class and not enough equipment. If you want a quick certification, it's just alright. If you're looking to become an expert, Lincoln does not seem willing to invest the money to make their HVAC program expert level, so buyer beware"

"How is it ok to have 9 failed students in a term and you are still teaching? This Night Term 2 Pharmacology teacher should not be teaching us period. We basically teach ourselves no study guides for tests then will test on 3 and 4 chapters at a time!"

""This school is a joke. Our teachers don’t even have qualification to be teaching at this level. They are disrespectful, and not knowledgeable. Its expensive, and its a waste of my money. I'm not even sure if I will be experienced enough to even be able to get an apprenticeship after this program. But at least I’ll have the certifications"

"This school is a joke. Our teachers don’t even have qualification to be teaching at this level. They are disrespectful, and not knowledgeable. There is a journeyman attending in our class that taught me more this week than I have the whole time I’ve been here. Its expensive, and its a waste of my money. Im not even sure if I will be experienced enough to even be able to get an apprenticeship after this program. But at least I’ll have the certifications 🤷🏻"

"I graduated from Lincoln Tech in 1996. With the training I received from the instructors helped me in my automotive career. After I was done I started working for a Napleton dealership. With that experience I became a Shop manager for a tire shop with 5 techs. I just turned 60 and I'm finishing my career as a Sr. Fleet Admin for Metra Railroad. We handle 700 pieces of equipment (from sedans to forklifts to 10 wheel trucks. Lincoln Tech enhanced my knowledge of vehicles (gas and diesel) from my Army experience, and allowed me to raise my kids to men and buy the cars and house I've always dreamed of. I will be retiring in about 7 years and I can't complain on how my career turned out."

"Lincoln Tech in Shelton is a joke. Most of the “students” there are only there to keep collecting unemployment and are bullies while the state of Connecticut continues to pay for them😡. Had things stolen out of my purse numerous times. My glasses and money was stolen. School does nothing about it. Huge turn around in staff. I ended up leaving and was stuck with a bill for $13,000. I wish I had researched this place before wasting my money. Everyone is accepted because all they want is your money. Go to a real college instead. Like I said this place is a joke."

"If you are considering Nursing DONT!! No college will accept the credits. You will have no choice but to start over if you plan to pursue your RN license. That means taking all courses over again! This is what they do not make clear. Now if you are happy simply being an LPN and will not progress then yes this is a great school. Do not waste 2 years of your life here if you want to be an RN, go to a community college, get all Gen Ed courses and go to an ADN program."

"Going to Lincoln Tech has not been as good as the recruiter made it out to be. I'm 3 months from graduation wishing I would have not come here in the first place. The quality of the education and the equipment is not good at all. The trucks hardly ever start and run and the engine we worked on barely hold together. As far as the instructors go all the old instructors that actually know what they are doing are retiring and getting replaced with instructors that haven't been in the industry long enough to be teaching. Some of the instructors make sure you know they know more than you and others are just arrogant. One big disappointment I have is I was told this school is mostly hands on. Yes some of it has been hands on (when the equipment works) but most of it has been lectures in class. I have specifically and strongly recommended people to not go to this school cause its just a huge waste of money when you can get the same or better quality education for just a few thousand dollars a few miles away. All in all this school is not worth the money and effort."

"I attended the Lincoln tech nursing program in Lincoln Rhode Island. My experience there was alright. I did feel like a few of the mods I had to just read the book because in mod 2 we had a teacher start out teaching the mod and then someone else came and made the test and it was nothing we were taught. In mod 4 we had a teacher accept another job and she was supposed to finish out our mod she kept missing our classes and she would be teaching us chapters way in advanced we would be testing on chapters 10,12,15,16,17 and would be learning chapters 30-35. I graduated in December of 2019 shortly before the pandemic began. I never got to have a graduation ceremony we ended up with a cheap “virtual” graduation that just showed our name on a power point that someone read off of. I received a tassel for the wrong year in the mail. I never received my lantern. None of us were able to participate in the graduation yet they had one person who actually worked there participate. The final straw has been that NO ONE will accept their credits. I am not able to transfer anything over to any school accept another technical school. I want my Nurse practitioner and don’t wish to attend another technical school. When I met with admissions I was told they were accredited and that I would be able to transfer credits to other colleges and that is far from the truth."

"This feels like high school but, WAY OVER PRICED. If you're thinking about coming here please don't waste your time or money... Go to community college instead. Financial aid will pay for most of it, and they pay for you to go school! The MA program is entirely on Quizlet, It depends on the teacher you have whether you're actually learning anything. They only have like two good teachers. A job is not actually guaranteed when you go on externship and they're constantly trying to recruit students to come here, They push for you to tell friends and family to come here. The most exciting thing about the program is drawing blood. The only thing they do good for you is send you on externship. Other than that they do have a good career services, they help you with a mock interview, finding a job and putting together a resume. After they've recruited they wont even remember your name. For being such a small school you would think the staff knew everyone but they're just worried about the money from the students that could be."

"I go to the lincoln tech in Marietta Georgia a had an awesome experience. I finished all my clinical classes and decided to do the degree program and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my time there. I've seen a lot of bad comments on here and I wonder what campus everyone goes to because the Atlanta campus is great."

"The school was great until they let a number of teachers go due to the budget and the teachers that remained were working a full day and exhausted and looked like they were going to fall asleep in class and we all felt so sorry for them. So after that a lot of students started dropping out including me I needed to get a job making money again but I still remember everything that I was taught."

"I attend there now and I hope these reviews I have read don't happen to me but I can already tell this was probably a horrible decision by the recruiter I spoke with on the phone that completely sold me a dream and when I met him blew me off like we haven't talked on the phone literally 3-4 days a week for a month and hasn't once said a word to me walking by or asked me how I like it there or how I might be doing in class. So now I'm currently looking into somehow getting out of here ASAP. 1st 6 weeks work sheets, work sheets, work sheets... I'm in my 2nd class in electrical automotive and its work-sheets, work-sheets, work sheets, and my teacher takes more cigarette breaks than breaks given to the students while constantly giving us a worksheets and 3 examples, asks us if we understand then complete silence the rest of the class. He 9 times out of 10 dips out the room to "grab something off the copier" which means to smoke another square or maybe something else. And I'm currently working in the field I'm going to school for and non of this is ever applied in the automotive mechanical world with what electrical we are being taught. You would think with how vehicles are going to electric more and more we would be getting some good hands on information but no we are learning to convert ohms into volts into watts... etc... which is basically a bunch of puzzles half the time drawn out by the teacher on a white sheet of paper and then graded on it. Also there is no tutoring options as someone else posted and I am lost at what I'm doing which clearly the teacher that's been there for 18 years I believe he said should know and want to help them succeed but he mentions in class that he's told people just take your 0 and move on. Only great thing about this school is tool discounts with Matco, SNAP-ON, Mac, and Gearwrench. Other than that this whole entire experience is a complete joke. I'm trying to see about getting out of this school to attend a real hands on school because I'm worksheets out in my 2 and a half months there and haven't got to do anything hands on yet besides a couple guys that brought there own oil to do an oil change. But straight up Mr. Burton is awesome and do believe out of everyone I've met he is probably the only 1 that might care a little bit but at the end of the day they are all there for that weekly paycheck and don't really care if we succeed at this school or not as long as they get that Government grant to stay open and get a paycheck. This place is a joke and there has to be something I can do to back out of the school or transfer to a real hands on school that shows you the real deal on what I'm trying to get a career in doing. Do not attend, I promise your going to regret it."

"I regret going here. All student services are unreliable and are not there to help students but only themselves. This school does not care about student learning they only care about getting their money. Overly packed classes (did NOT have enough seats one mod), no tutoring, topics not being reviewed YET would be included on tests and we were told by Mrs.Benn ¨too bad you should have read". They just want you to read the complete textbook back to front over and over with no guidance and hope for the best. I wish I would have done more research about this place before going."
