Student & Graduate Reviews (100)
The instructors were so helpful in achieving my goal in becoming a register nurse.
Took from graduating in 2009 until this year 2015 for me to find employment with an associated degree in medical administration & a diploma in medical billing & coding. Im finally currently employed, but not in the field I went to school for. the school failed to tell me that I needed to be "certified" to get anywhere & they were no help with job placement. now im stuck on 20,000$ worth of debt. if any one looks in to legal advise for "deceptive acts" or something along that line, let me know. this schools has been screwing over a lot of people for a lot of years & its not fair.
This is not to be disgruntle so curb yourself before you jump to conclusions. the majority of the teachers in this school want what is best for the students and do their best at times. unfortunately the administration of the school is very lacking. the buck is passed along so much that it has dirt on it from years ago. if you have additional financial aid and you want it they would prefer to tell you what ever you want to hear instead of releasing it to you in a timely manner they will continue to lie to you and say it is on its way yet will not let you know what is holding it up from being released.. in addition the employees are so scared of getting fired that if you ask a question about the corporate office it is like a grenade hit the floor and everyone ducks or runs for cover. This school is here to make a profit and if it is able to get into your wallet then you did not do enough research or just jumped at whatever came your way like I did. do I regret coming to this school no, I met many great people but the cost to benefit ratio is way off.
Everyone, please read this before you make your decision. When i went to sign up i felt like i made the best decision of my life. I was excited and ready to start. It was hurry, hurry, hurry to get you excited and feel good about selecting this school. Semester after semester, instructors were dropping left and right. Went through multiple academic advisers and again many instructors. Since southern tech college took over they're after one thing and that's your wallet. $30,000 in debt and no jobs lined up before i graduated like they said they would. Your just a number and this place is worse then a dealership. Avoid any (for profit) schools like this one, you'll have crazy loans and no way to pay them. They are fake to your face too get you in and then everyone acts like they don't know you. Again, AVOID PROFIT SCHOOLS LIKE THIS ONE. You can get a degree for a quarter of the cost than this school.
This clown college. What a JOKE. Waste of time and rob you blind. Teachers seem like they were hired off the street. The financial aid is like a bunch of robots that have their head so far up their ass they couldn't even tell you what day it is. If I were you reading this right now I would keep looking a community college would be a much better and reasonable option. -STC dropout and I could have made a better decision.
The PC campus is run by a bunch of egotistical, unqualified, money grabbers. The instructors are mostly unqualified. Not sure why ACICS or DOE doesn't shut them down. Ever since STC took over it has gone down. Campus Director is a liar and doesn't care about students. Save your money.
This school only cares about one thing MONEY!!!!!! They lie to you to get you in the door then its all over from there. Went through teachers left and right. Some weren't qualified for the position. People do your homework, this school talks a big game but it's all a fake. Don't fall for it like I did, $30in debt and other schools are a quarter of the cost.
This school might sound great and act great, but in reality they are money hungry hounds. I was told after completing school for my AS in Medical Assisting that they would help all they could to try and find jobs and help with job placement..did any of that happen. NOPE. After graduation, you are on your own. The teachers were the best part, I cant say anything bad about them..well okay maybe one thing, they (the Sanford location) goes through teachers like water, not even joking. Its your call on where you want to go and what you want to do with the rest of your life, but im just letting you know my experience. Here I am 3 years later, NOT in my field of study (many places didn't even know the name of the college) and drowning in student loan debt. sorry but $36,000 was NOT worth it ..had I known ..
This was the first time I had ever put myself in a degree program. I did not realize that they were a "for profit" college. During the initial interview, they danced around the fact that they were a for profit institution. It was very confusing, not only to me, but to quite a few other students. The faculty were great and they were able to give more of a "one on one" experience with their classes. I just didn't agree with the $30,000 price tag with 18 months of college for an associates of science degree. When looking into colleges, please take the time to look into whether the college you choose is for profit, or not for profit. It will greatly be to your advantage.
It is a rip off. When I left they made me pay them cash "because I didn't finish semester". They said my student loans didn't cover it. 6 months with that school and I owe about $12,500. Within a month of being at the school 5-6 employees left. The Financial Aid counselor was not even supposed to be allowed to be employed with that type of position. I loved my teachers there, but they didn't go to school to teach. They have a certificate or teaching. They lied and told me my credits would transfer. None of them transferred and I have to start fresh at the Community College. I will be spending less money going to do all prerequisites and 2-year program at another school than I did in 6 months at Southern Technical College. They charge more for their classes than at some Universities. Don't waste your time or money. They are salesman, they know what to say and they are not honest with you. I can not even tell you how many lies I was told as a student there. If I would have finished the program I would owe about $32,000 and since I left they have increased tuition.
