"Pacific College of Health and Science unlawfully denies accomodation for medical and religious exemptions for COVID measures. They created a hostile environment for students inquiring about exemptions. In 2021, a petition was started by students in support of bodily sovereignty for students, faculty, staff, and patients at the school, and the petition was posted to the school's Facebook page (PCHS Peeps). Many students, and some teachers, left very angry, hateful, and discriminatory comments under this petition and no one was held accountable for the abusive and unprofessional language and conduct. Many of the faculty members that were involved in denying exemptions and other discrimination towards students have since been promoted within the organization. If you are curious about how this school really operates and who it serves, follow the money. They don't follow through on advocacy for holistic health care and patient rights. This school is for profit and they will choose that over true holistic education. They do not allow healthy conversation when it comes to views outside of allopathic mainstream narratives. Do not waste your time or money here, especially if you care about following the law and upholding constitutional rights in a holistic environment. By their actions, this school does not serve as a beacon of integrity, intelligence, compassion, critical thinking, and it does not foster a safe and positive learning environment for all students."

"I can't recommend PCHS. The instructors are a mixed bag. A couple of good ones, a couple of terrible ones, and the rest in the middle. There is no academic rigor - classes are barely college level and nowhere near doctoral level. It's kind of a joke honestly. Administration is also inconsistent, a few folks are helpful, but most are not. Financial Aid is especially bad and can not be relied upon to provide accurate information. One positive is that the on-line environment is excellent in terms of technology. However, overall, I am incredibly disappointed in my experience at PCHS. I still have 1 and 1/2 semesters to go and I can't get out of there fast enough."

"Too disorganized and nothing is taught well. Acupuncturists are not always the best teachers! Too much information thrown in your face too quickly. Teachers mostly spit out at you and so many tests!!! A healing school that makes students mentally, physically and emotionally suck."

"Worst school ever, save youre money and choose another program! The Faculaty are completely unprofessional and unorganized. If you have a family or work, forget about anyone in this school helping you. No one cares and the thousands of dollars you pay a semester is not shown. On top of it all there are so many additional expenses that they DO NOT tell you about. This is technically a 6-7 year program squeezed into 3-4 years and it is not worth doing it here in PCOM. The COO will do anything to get more money out of you by belittieling you, abusing you, and lying! All New York City campus students hate him and wish for someone more professional and caring to take his place. Once again, save your money and time DO NOT COME HERE!!"

"Pacific college offers students the best Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine classes with great staffs and faculty. The campus is based in the heart of financial district which offers easy transportation and many local restaurants. The professors are here with passion to pass on their significant knowledge and wisdom. Hands on clinics are located downstairs where we get all the practical experiences. The class sizes are decent and classmates are very friendly. This school definitely helps to prepare students with their future career."

"Good school; demanding program... behind the curve with technology and recent attempts at upgrading this have fallen short. Facilities are lacking in some ways, but a facilities upgrade coming within the next year should help solve much of this problem. Good education, but a bit expensive. Great faculty who really love the medicine and teaching and who support students without reservation."
