3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I enrolled as a night student. I was assured at that time that having all night classes was "no problem" but of course, now that they've got my money, it IS a problem.

EVERY quarter when we do our scheduling, I am assigned MORNING classes, which of course are not going to work for me. So I have to do this whoe rigamarole to get afternoon and evening classes.

Overall Experience: As I said before, you will get out of is what you put into it.

If you expect everything to be given to you, that's not going to happen, you're going to have to work, private school or not.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid office is always helpful.

The course is EXPENSIVE but the alternative is to spend YEARS longer at a CC... You just have to decide what is more important to you.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I don't like the online classes because they do not support the way that I learn. For example, I don't write in stages, I do all of my research and then sit down and write, usually with no outlines, drafts, etc.

In the online classes, you have to write everything in stages, which takes me a tremendous amount of time, most of which ends up being wasted...

Campus Resources: Student center is essentially a lounge with a couple dozen tables, vending machines, and microwaves.

The library is smallish, with 16 computer stations, a small hard-print library, and essentially all research materials are online.

There are some campus activities, such as blood drives, health-focussed "walks" (heart walk, etc.), food sales and raffles to raise money for student services, which provides emergency food and gas money for students in need.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There in only one computer lab that is always open - that is in the library. You can print there.

If you have a class in one of the computer lab classrooms, you can also print in them, as long as the printers are running (usually they're fine...).

The network seems to be reasonably reliable.

There is free Wi-Fi if you have you own computer, tablet, and/or smart phone. You should only need your own printer if you need to print at home.

3 College Senior

Student Body: We have programs in IT, Medical Assisting, Medical Office Admin, Medical Billing/Coding, Dental Assisting, and several business admin courses. The students are as diverse as you might expect - not as much so as a traditional liberal arts school, but more so than when we were all in high school.

As this is not a conventional college, but a technical/career college, I am sure that it is very different than many of the schools reviewed here.

3 College Senior

Facilities: I don't think there is really anything UNIQUE here, but it is what you make of it.

4 College Senior

Career Services: Externships are available to almost everyone.

Career services are available, and nearly everyone in my field seems to be getting jobs that are at least somewhat related to the field, which is better than most schools.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: It's fine.

There's a lot of jobs out there for MIBC, as long as the students work at it.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: You get out of it what you put into it.

A lot of people will dump on private schools, but I am doing here in 18 months what would have taken me 3 to 5 years in a community college. It would have been less money, but I would not have been guaranteed to get my classes, etc. and the wasted time would have been a nightmare.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: the online classes are great.

Academic Experience: I had my schedule made and wasnt sure if I was happy with it. I knew I needed to take a different class than one i was given. I was debating on changing it when I received a phone call from my academic counselor with advice on how to get the correct class and fix my schedule. I quickly agreed and the changes were made. The staff is always helpful in answering all my questions and fixing any little problem.

Student Body: My school has a very diverse student body. Yet everybody i have met so far has been very nice. I can usually get at least a nod or a smile from any student passing in the hall.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I do believe that the tuition is appropriate for the program I signed for. However the school offers on campus or online courses. If I am unable to take a class on campus due schedule conflicts then I have the option to take it online. I was not aware that it costs an additional $125 to take an online course. I was signing a paper in attempt to sign up when I saw the fee. I have since changed my weekend schedule with my children to be able to take the class on campus. a warning would have been nice.

Academic Experience: I am just starting in my core curriculum this quarter, so I can't rate that very well - I do know several grads who are getting jobs in or very similar to what they want, so that speaks well of the curriculum and preparation (many of these students are doing a COMPLETE career path change, like me).

Some of the classes, like "Success" seemed like a waste of time, as it was geared mostly toward the younger crowd (right out of high school...), so I seemed to be helping the instructor with mentoring-type activities.

The core classes seem very thorough from what I've seen.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I qualified for both the Federal Stafford Loans and for a private loan, which I unfortunately have to pay on right now (I haven't worked in 18 months, and have no more unemployment extension...). The application process went smoothly enough, and I will be going in next week to see about a Pell grant as I have no more income at all.

Campus Resources: There are plenty of available computers if you don't want to bring your laptop to school with you. If you do bring your own, there is free wifi EVERYWHERE on campus. The administrators are attentive (as far as I can tell - I haven't personally needed them myself...).

Campus Resources: Included in Student Services, which I covered earlier, there is also a rideshare program, which I omitted to mention before. This is really helpful to a lot of students.

Campus Resources: Heald could improve, but they are a lot better than other private colleges out there, and the cost is essentially the same wherever you go. I feel that the services to the students is what makes Heald stand out over other private schools, especially when you consider Student Services (food closet, professional clothing closet, emergency gas cards, counseling services, access to community outreach that students may not otherwise find out about, etc.). I attended MTI several years ago, and they've got NOTHING on Heald.
