"I called many times for my internship since I finished my program ahead of time, but they dont help me at all! It just a waist of money! They promise that they are going to pay the first test or PTCB test but I ended up paid my own. Im regretted that I enrolled to this school."

"Ok. My experience with this school was excellent. I never had any major problems. I was able to work at my own pace and billing was exactly how I thought it would be. I never had issues with materials being late or anything like that. When you sign up for a program like this you have to be self motivated and you have to pay on time and in full. If you can not do that then don't sign up. My degree is framed and got me a good job. Think about your situation before you sign up here. I would take another course here. I would also recommend this course IF YOU ARE SELF MOTIVATED. LOL."

"I was told to contact the student services phone number, however they just hang up on you. I can not transfer to another program despite not being able to do the required externship on the CPhT program. No student services available and I can not even transfer my program. I guess, I will be contacting Phoenix to try there."

"I saw someone else's post both before I started with this school and also just now I completely agree. I came into some financial difficulties and I havent even complete 50% of my class and they are wanting me to pay more than 50% of the tuition. Unfortunately, no one expects to be thrown out of their parents house at 20 but that has happened to me and my husband and out 5 month old. I explained to student care and they have not yet replied to me. And the few replies I have gotten were disrespectful. I would not recommend this school to anyone simply because alot of it is online and anyone can pass the classes with that being said."

"The class was insanely easy and I passed with an A, but what they didn't tell me was the clinicals (which are VERY necessary) are extreme part time, and for someone who is unemployed can't pay for all the background checks, physicals, drop tests, insurance, blood work etc that the company you will be externshiping with will need in order to have in behind the counter! It's a useless piece of paper! I have it in a frame but won't ever use it since no one will hire you!"
