Student & Graduate Reviews (34)
This school is not worth the money. Stick with a CUNY you will at least have something to show for it. All this school did was left me with a loan. Finally finishing paying off my loan to the department of education for them to tell me they won't release my transcripts because I now owe the school as if paying $75 short of $10,000 loan wasn't enough.
I am now retired after 40 yrs in electrical / mechanical career. I started my first job with ADT as a bench technician, after picking up some experience I moved on to becoming a field engineer with Kodak and Konica , I thank TCI for the hands on education I received.
I completed the HVAC program in 2016 and got a job in residential HVAC (not through the school). Let me start off by saying some teachers actually care about teaching you and some are not interested in their students at all. So yes, don't expect to have your hand held, try to study with people who care about their education. It will pay off. As far as what I learned, this school mostly teaches commercial refrigeration and air conditioning which can be very complex so don't be discouraged if you don't understand something, I feel like they should have touched up more on installation, residential systems, and heating. As far as tuition wise i feel it is a complete ripoff and the school is designed to take as much money from you as possible. But overall I enjoyed my time in TCI, it was a challenge, I even failed two classes but bounced back and ended up graduating in 16 months, TCI was a steppingstone for me, I completed my first year as a residential technician and have learned more than ever, so my advice to the HVAC students out there, if possible try to schedule class at night and get a job with a company during the day, it will improve your studies, good luck to everyone and I hope this review inspires more people to pursue this trade
This school is pricey, but it is the best in the state for my study. It is also a private college. Apparently people on here didn't know that. If you do the work, you will be rewarded. I am currently in my 3rd semester and have been on the dean's list twice. GPA of 3.73. I have already taken my certification test, in my early 2nd semester, and am now ABO certified. The teachers are amazing. If you take OPT, Mrs. L. is the most amazing human being and teacher.
I graduated here and I have nothing but positive things to say because I see the glass as half full cause I started from the bottom and TCI gave me the chance to improve myself and my goals I had the honor of knowing the entire staff and faculty to understand what's need to move on and improve for my future they take the time to direct you for the next step and if you push yourself and apply yourself in doing their work you get what you put in, stop worrying about the cost because this is a step to millions of you work hard for it
My time at TCI transformed my life. Not only was I able to excel academically but I was honored to be involved in student government and other student related activities. I was able to earn the trust and respect of TCI faculty members and also my peers. The learning I acquired at TCI is absolutely applicable in the professional arena, as I am currently working in my field of training as a paralegal.
I learned allot from the school. I put effort and time into my education and now it's paying off lovely. The day after I graduated I started my new career and I am well on my way to success. I work for an amazing company that I very grateful for. Tci helped sharpen my skills and prepare me for the real world. I miss the school and would like to go back to talk to the current student body.
I got a job as a Paralegal through the Career Services and Mr. Agnello from TCI College. If you put 100% you will get a 100% at TCI. I graduated on the deans list, A- student because I put in the effort. The administration helps. The clubs are great.
One thing I can say is that college is what you make of it and if you come in somewhere with a negative attitude you are going to get negative responses in return. I have yet to meet any staff in my major or in the school who have not assisted me with things that I needed whether it is personal or school related. Of course there are things that can be worked on but that's everywhere. Thank you too Father D., ECM, Dean J, OS, AR, WJ, and everyone else who helped me when I needed them !
TCI is an excellent college. It was the beginning of many great things in my life. Before going there i had no direction and didn't know what the future held me. I was running around not in good circles and now i am happy to say that i am attending another college pursuing a nursing degree. i give thanks to all at TCI who believed in me and always encouraged me to continue no matter what.
