Tuition & Financial Aid: My experience with the financial aid process is that they were able to follow up with me and keep me posted of any changes. Since I'm still a new student, the tuition is a little on the expensive side but I know it will be worth it in the end.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have learned that roughly I am paying $125 a day , so I ultilize everything they have to offer. I believe that my 10 months of school is going to excel me in a better position later down the line . The financial department is very helpful with helping out getting everything I need besides letting me know about more funding to help me pay off for school also.

Academic Experience: The pharmacy technician program is demanding. I won't try to say otherwise. The workload is certainly not overwhelming, but at the same time you should be prepared to experience a noticeable decrease in the time you have available to party. This is as it should be - you are entering a field in which a mistake could prove fatal to your patient/customer, and attention to detail is paramount. You must be prepared to give learning your craft the priority it deserves.
The facilities as they currently stand (March 2012) could be updated, and I know for a fact that such an update is scheduled to occur in the next two months. A larger classroom as well as newer and better equipment is planned. That being said, the current facility is adequate to teach the basics of aseptic procedure, using a horizontal and vertical flow hood, proper methods of compounding, and the various other skill sets you will be called on to acquire.
You will be required to successfully complete an internship at a local employer (they call it an externship) in order to graduate the course. The Career Services department works closely with the department head to find a good fit between you and your extern site. Job opportunities for pharmacy technicians are good, especially in the state of Florida - but you should also be prepared to become nationally certified (by taking the PTCE) before the end of your extern assignment. That certification will make it much easier to find employment, and will gain you a higher starting salary.

Campus Resources: Learning Is Fundamental – The collegiate atmosphere at Anthem College is different from that of any other college I've attended, or even visited. Their student body is comprised of students of all ages, from many different societal situations. They make a conscious effort to make the learning experience an enjoyable one, and they succeed.
The Student Services Department will bend over backwards to make it possible for you to get to school in the face of car trouble, financial hardships, and those life events that all-too-often throw unwanted complications into life's routines. They offer carpooling assistance and assistance with obtaining bus passes for those who use the city's bus system. They stock a food pantry and a clothing resource for students who suddenly 'come up short' when preparing for an interview.
After you've graduated, the college offers lifetime skills refresher courses and job placement assistance.
The instructors I've been associated with have uniformly been quite professional and knowledgeable about their subject matter. The pharmacy technician program, in particular, prides itself on developing student leadership through the student mentor program. This program designates students selected for their academic ability as well as their maturity to be mentors. These mentors are encouraged to make themselves available to other students who are struggling with their studies, and to be class leaders. As a former mentor myself, I can testify that it is a personally rewarding as well as educational post to hold.
