"DO NOT go to this school!!! Its a complete joke. 1 & 2nd term are going to feel normal. And then all of a sudden you're kicked out with no explanation. I went to every department. They told me to call a number. I ask for the number. " oh we dont have it" EXCUSE ME?? IM KICKED out. Lost all my aid and my apartment (because i had loans out for living) Then i go to request my transcripts because I had to move 800 miles back home. And I HAD TO PAY 2K TO GET THEM?! DO. NOT. GO. HERE.!!!! IM NOW 23K In debt and no degree. Dont waste your money"

"I attended this school because my friend was there, and made it seem to be pretty decent. The only decent thing about this school is how much money was put into it. The culinary program is what keeps the school running. I wasn't even there 3 months, and Ive decided to call it quits. I am a veteran, so I use my Post 9/11 to go to school. Upon enrolling into this establishment, my information was NEVER submitted to the VA. So guess who didn't get paid the first month and a half? I had to call the VA and see what was going on, then go to the financial aid department myself to be told that for sure it was never submitted. Then after that, the online textbooks that they charge you $200 dollars every semester for DOES NOT WORK! How the heck are we being charged hundreds of dollars for textbooks we can't access, and then being told to go find physical copies until further notice. How about you refund us that money back? Since we pay out of pocket for those electronic textbooks. The payments are automatically taken from your account, and if you don't want them to take it out then you have to submit a request form. Then back to the financial aid department...if you have a refund for financial aid you can forget about receiving it. I have a refund over $2000 just sitting there and its been months, to be told they're on hold. For months? Ive emailed 2 members of financial aid, including the manager to be told they arent sending out stipends just yet. Some of us have families and siblings to take care of. This school is quick to take your money, but slow to refund it back. From what Ive read from other students, the reason this money isnt being refunded is because its being pocketed. To be honest it doesn't seem like the administrative staff care too much. Upon submitting paperwork stating I would no longer be in attendance, I got asked why I was leaving; and if I had tried to find other resources in order to stay with the school. Why would I want to stay at a school with all of these problems? I'm glad Im leaving, instead of wasting my G.I. Bill."

"Let me start by saying this: I LOVED my school. All my instructors (minus the HR instructor) were GREAT, active industry related professionals that knew exactly what they were doing. I learned so much, possibly because I was an older student (26 at the time) ready and determined to get the most of my money. Upon graduation is where the frustration happened. I was sold on the education and committing to the school for the length of the degree because they PROMISE to "help you find a job after graduation". Did I find a job? NOPE. Everything the career advisor was sending me was from the same career search engines I was already using; I'm sure I probably knew about MORE. THE SCHOOL DOES NOT HELP YOU FIND A JOB AS THEY PROMISE!!! I ended up opening my own business because I couldn't find anything. Was it the school that prepared me for the real world? Not really. But they did help me learn time management, but I could have gotten that from any other college for LESS MONEY."

"I would not recommend this school. I did not understand what type of school it was when I enrolled. It is a for-profit school that cares little about actual education or preparing you for an actual job after graduation."

"Over 100K of debt with a job that pays less than 25K a year is really tough and it's thousands of us in the same situation. Don't waste your time, it's all over that is a scam and sued for 11 billion for FRAUD! google it, I regret this decision forever and it ruins many people lives. Don't do the same."

"This place is a joke! Made me feel like I was the stupid one. so glad I have decided to go else where. Don't waste your money, not worth it at all. IT'S JUST A REALLY OVER PRICE TRAINING SCHOOL. Wish I would have never came here. drowned in loans and having to start from zero, Nothing transfers."

"This school has so far done nothing but ruin my life! I attended here for only a month before the headache started! When I enrolled I signed a contract saying I would pay $155 out of pocket each month for what my student loans didn't cover with along with rent, food and all my other expenses was very reasonable ... A month into classes I was called to the office and was told I needed to bumb my payments up to $255 a month and they had some bullshit reason as to why, and me being a dumb 19 year old I signed and agreed. Maybe 2 months after that the same thing happens and was assured this would not go past $300. By the time I got a year into school they were trying to charge me $1,500 OUT OF POCKET. When I reached out to try and get help they told me "get a second job" no compassion what so ever. I was a dedicated student with great grades, always attended class, and worked my ass off. I worked just about every minuet I wasn't in class to be able to try and afford school and that still wasn't enough! This school has unreal financial expections of students and doesn't give a shit about helping you find help all you are is a paycheck to them! I have had MANY friends have a very similar situation, and have actually talked to complete strangers who attended and were forced to dropped out because of the same ridiculous sudden price increase. I wouldn't recommend this school to my worst enemy! Now that I am out of school because I couldn't afford $1500 a month they call me daily harassing me telling me they are going to turn me over to collections and destroy my credit and so on. This went from being my biggest dream to my worst nightmare and it isn't even close to over. Unless you have parents that are loaded or can afford that much every single month just for school DO NOT GO HERE! SAVE YOURSELF THE HEART BREAK AND THE HEAD ACHE!"
