Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2020
"Money hungry people! Their accreditor is terrible and wont allow credits to transfer. They lie to you and tell you whatever they have to in order to get your money. Terrible school cost as much as a university and give you an insurmountable about of homework for unaccredited classes."

"Do Not attend this school!!! Other colleges do not accept their credits even though they lied to me and told me Id be able to transfer to USF which I wasnt and most jobs dont even recognize it as a legit degree. Do yourself a favor and save your time and money"

"Southern Technical College (Orlando Campus) Is disorganized and all-around money hungry. Never will I ever recommend anyone to attend this school! They prey on low-income individuals and trick you into thinking you are making the best decision for your future. When in actuality, you end up being in major debt and nothing to show for all the time you put into receiving this expensive education. Their accreditation is flawed and goes through unfair hoop holes. Valencia doesn’t even accept credits from them! My issue with this business is that they are all over the place and have different departments that tell you different things. Because of their uncoordinated administration, I couldn’t even attend graduation. I had to miss out on my big day because the person that ran the career service department had forgotten to put in the order for my cap and gown. I’ve spent 2 hard-working years trying to obtain my associate's degree in Medical Assisting. And I say “trying” because I have completed my two years and passed but they refuse to give me my diploma and hold it hostage because I’m supposedly not current on my out of house loan payment. After I shelled out a lot of money to stay current. I then received my transcripts with no problem and the registrar department ordered my diploma with no problem and said I can pick it up once it arrived. When I called to see if my diploma has arrived, they said it has but they can’t give it to me because for some odd reason, once again, I’m not current on my payment. I was then transferred to the registrar department to get clarification since my previous conversation with them stated otherwise. In the transfer, I was sent to voicemail and I left a message regarding the issue. Still, I have not received a return call. This school’s administration is full of lies and is not helpful to the students! Please steer clear of this organization and go to Valencia or any other REAL accredited school!"

Former student - 7/14/2019
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019
"This had to be the worst experience I’ve ever had with a college when the best instructor ever Miss G left, all the other instructors didn’t teach. They were gossiping about Miss G and other students. It’s ridiculous that you pay a lot of money to go to school and you have to be taught by the worst instructors. Miss Davis and Cook are nice to your face then gossip about you to other students behind your back. Administration doesn’t do anything about it, they are so worried about keeping students that don’t show up and study. They pass anyone just to keep their numbers up. I worked hard for my grades and I owe it all to one great Instructor. They should have never let Miss G go. I wouldn’t waste my time nor money on this college. Go to a college where they actually care about your learning. Not somewhere that would treat students this way. I actually filled a complaint with the DOE. Hopefully this schools gets investigated. Waste of money and the instructors act so unprofessional."

OB/GYN Diagnostic Medical Sonographer - 11/20/2018
Degree: Sonography
Graduation Year: 2016
"The best decision I have ever made was studying Ultrasound at Southern Tech. The class sizes are small, which is only to your benefit. The professors are very knowledgeable. I received my Bachelors degree at a different university before attending Southern Tech and I soon realized that the work load here is very manageable. I now work full-time doing OBGYN ultrasound and I have never been happier. I actually enjoyed going to class here and my classmates became some of my closest friends."

"Great school, great program, great teachers. Highly recommended. They truly care about the students. The teachers in the ultrasound program do everything they can to help you succeed. They are always there for you. I have been to other schools abc I did not have this experience."
