My decision to attend this school was somewhat arbitrary, but it turned out well. I experienced pro's and con's during the process of getting my degree. First the pro's: I could hold a full time job, and get the degree I needed to further my career. Financial Aid was never a problem, and I generally got all the help from instructors I needed. The Con's: It cost a lot of money, but I knew that going in. I was pretty confident that I could make up that amount of money with improved income. The other Con was that I had at least three advisors in four years, and they became increasingly harder to contact. The last one did bail me out of a tough spot. I got to the senior year, and the very last class I needed was full. It might have meant waiting another whole year to get this class, which was not acceptable. This lady actually opened another class for me and several others, and allowed me to graduate on time. It bothers me that so many other people are dissatisfied. It makes me wonder if they did their homework before they enrolled in this school. Overall I feel that my expectations were met.
This school is a joke and not worth the time wasted. I went to the school online and on campus and by the end of my degree I was told that my financial aid would not cover my last semester of classes and my last classes I had to come out of pocket for my books. I had to spend money I did not have just to graduate. Which I was told my financial aid would cover my Classes when I first enrolled. Also I was told they would promise to help you get a job in your field of study. When I graduated they lost all contact with me. I was leaving voicemails and emails wouldnt get a response back. So still to this day I never found a job in my field for my associates degree. Just a waste of two years of schooling for nothing and waste of money and time. Dont go to this school. Save your time and go to another school worth going to.
This school is complete crap. They charge outrageous tuition and offer little in return. They should be more carefully examined by the Feds. TERRIBLE!! I think that the (underpaid) faculty do try, but when they recognize that they are simply pawns in the game, they go away. The admins are over payed, and all they are expected to do is to string students along to enroll in the next term.
This is all self study. Do not expect support from the program director. She will turn anything and everything around that you say and make it be your fault. The "instructors" do not know how to teach. Sure they know the job of being an OTA or OT, but they have not the slightest clue how to relay any actual information and teach. They will also mislead you into thinking that there is a huge demand for COTA, there is not. It took me MONTHS to find a job, and it was only PRN or part time. Sure they have great passing rates on the NBCOT, but it is all you. If you are looking for a program just to get a degree so you can sit for the test, then have fun. Just do not expect to learn anything in class. You are really paying to self teach. You just get a degree that says you can sit for the test. It is amazing the still have their credentials. This program is overpriced and you will NEVER receive any support. They will never have your back. If you have an issue with your fieldwork, being pushed around or harassed or treated unfairly, they will never have your back. You just have to deal with it and pray you make it to graduation. I would never suggest this school or this program to anyone, not even my worst enemy.
This school is completely trash, no help from the instructors and our success coaches are a joke, god forbid you have to call K. for anything she is a complete bitch. Save your money and go somewhere else. There are plenty of other schools to go to.
look... I had not even started the school yet and I was having second questions. All of the different websites I had to create accounts for did not feel safe. I did not even know or get to pick what classes I wanted to be enrolled in. Once me and my mother called my representative to cancel my classes, she started to try and tell my mother how to raise me! She was also trying to belittle my mothers knowledge on the government shutdown and how the students loans were going to come through as the government opened up again. I plan on calling or emailing the head of admissions/dean to let them know how awfully she treated my mother over a phone call. DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL. I did not graduate or even to begin on starting school here. Just wanted to let everyone know about my situation .
I graduated last year 2017 from NAU with my BA in Business Management and the entire time it was dreadful. Even now I was dumb enough to back to school for my masters using their graduate program and that was a joke. Ive always had super helpful academic advisors which was the only positive part to going to this school. During my BA i had run out financial aid but was told that I was fine and my costs were covered until April of 2017... when I get a letter stating that I owed the school over 7k and was going to be sent to collections if I did not pay by the end of the month!!!! Not once was I ever told I had any outstanding balances owed to the school.. Now with me pulling out from my masters classes the day after they call me with a $22 balance telling me that I was 90+ days past due on it... again no one said anything! My husband now attends the school for the same degree and they have yet again found a way to get more money out of us!! Not to mention hes a military veteran with the GI bill!!! I will not be returning thats for sure!!
I didn't graduate from this school. This has been the WORST EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD WITH A SCHOOL. THEY ARE UNPROFESSIONAL AND THEY DEFINITELY ONLY WANT YOUR MONEY . I cannot believe how disappointed I am/was with this school . Never again . If somebody refers you ... don't do it.
DO NOT, DO NOT TRUST THESE PEOPLE. They enroll you in classes and don't tell you until your already a few weeks in that your financial aid won't cover the tuition. So you are either stuck with trying to get an outside loan or dropping out and still get charged. Then they expect you to pay off the entire tuition all at once. If you can't get a loan what makes them think you can pay the tuition all at once.
One of the worst experiences Ive had with an educational institution. Your federal loans will not cover your degree program, but you will not be told this until you are a term away from graduating. You will be lead to believe that all is taken care of and be slapped in the face, so to speak, with an exorbitant amount of money needed, out of pocket, to complete your degree. Essentially, holding your degree for ransom. Bottom line, choose a different school!
