"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."

"I completed 3 degrees at STC best college i have ever seen. They care about the students and they care about your future also. I loved it so much i came back 3 times! I know work in the HVAC field and make 75k a year, i choose to take the medical degrees also as they will help me later on when i decide to slow down. This college is great dont listen to the Bull shit written those people are the ones who would not be happy with any college. Its all about what you do with what you have and all you have to do is ask and they will give you what you need. ((:"

"A Wolf in sheep's clothing...This school pretends to have the students best interest in mind but all they really care about are the numbers. Unprofessional at times, students are treated like juveniles in the attempt to keep the schools attendance at its highest. The degree is less useful than a roll of toilet paper. Do extensive research before settling for any of their programs."

"Seriously. This school is a joke. Teachers dating teachers, drama between students, being able to pass based on attendance? I can't find a job to pay back the amount of debt i received from going here, and I can't finish nursing with this degree anywhere that won't be the amount of a small mortgage. I can honestly say i wasted my time there and my degree is garbage! Good luck in the degree mill!!!!"
