Degree: Medical Insurance Coding Specialist/Coder
Graduation Year: 2015

This school is terrible. I was enrolled and ready to start classes when I decided to withdrawal. Everyone you talk to is just so pushy and tries to push you into things. When I went to withdrawal from their school they would not let me and kept offering me other programs to enroll in, finally I was able to withdrawal and my admissions advisor was very very rude and unprofessional. This school only wants your money. Now I am having to get ahold of them to have them fill out a withdrawal clearance letter so I can attend another school and now you can't find a single person to talk to all you get is someone's voicemail. This school is a joke, do not waste your money here.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2009

My first impression of the school was excellent. The over the phone assistance was wonderful...until my fafsa account encountered a bug. I was unable to resubmit my information and because of that I was cut from class with no warning. This happened twice and no was able to give me any information as per why or how to fix the situation. I built up a debt because of it and was unable to rejoin the program because of this. I have been hung up on and the over the phone assistance became less patient and helpful. Horrible experience and disheartening

I feel this is a scam. What you are not told is there is no one will hire you. You have no experience. The online degree does not help in any way.

Do not attend this school. I learned the hard way. I did not plan to end up getting pregnant, but I did. Well I attended their week boot camp, had a few complications of the pregnancy (sickness and others). Besides being treated like crap when I was at boot camp for being pregnant, I also received injuries while there that was uncalled for. When it came time to learn hands on, the instructor did not allow me or my partner to practice as much as she did the other two students. I see they show a lot of favoritism with students. Well I started my externship once after I returned home, well more complications put me into the hospital and then doctor put me on bed rest! I had completed almost half of my hours. I told all the faculty about the bed rest, one lady told me I could return after delivery and start off where I left at. Then I speak to my coordinator and she tells me I will have to complete all the hours all over again AND return to Missouri and redo the boot camp again. I will then also have to pay more charges. This school is definitely all about money. I checked my pell grants and I still had extra on my pell grant for the 2014-2015 school year that could have been used, but they want me to pay out of my pocket, THEN I will have to pay again out of pocket to re-enter school. PLEASE I'm begging everyone, do not attend this school either online or campus.

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is a huge ripoff and I do not recommend it to anyone!!! They lie, manipulate and are highly unethical! They didn't bother telling me they weren't accredited through the AAMA to which my state requires all medical personnel to be. They pretended they didn't know but they did. The laws were changed/passed in my state before I even began my classes online. They lied and I found out because I was offered an interview with a very highly recognized hospital and when I went to sign up for the AAMA test they informed me I couldn't take it because my school wasn't accredited!! This school tried to weasel their way out of the truth, they told me that I should just go to school in my state than but I am so far in debt from school tuition that I will NEVER go to school again!! They are a HUGE RIPOFF, they fire people left and right, they change their name when everyone catches up with them and starts researching them legally....it's unethical and NOT COOL!!!

Well first off the school staff never gets back with you unless they want something and the other part was the "oh we can place you in a job or at least get you information on jobs, we have several companies waiting for your graduation date" lies the school has done nothing for me, what leads they have gave me are bogus.. I wouldnt recommend this place to nobody unless they want to pay a lot for nothing.
