Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel as though all the courses are worth the money. Financial aid has helped to defray my costs. My only desire would to have extra courses for getting a certification for the Medical Billing and Coding, and possibly pre-certification classes.

Academic Experience: I would not recommend anyone to go to this school. If you have money to spend like, $10,000, or don't mind going to high school all over again but with $200 a month payments afterwards, then go ahead.

The teachers (if you're on their good side) and the education itself is pretty good, Mostly book work and not as much clinical, actual real-life stuff. But as far as the amount that you have to pay, its not worth it.



At the beginning, during the financial aid process, they sugarcoat everything saying oh it's only $3000 And you pay it off during the year that you're in school when in reality that's only one of three loans that you have to get (but you're only paying the interest at that time and the other 2 being ones that start 6 months after graduation). You have private, subsidized, and unsubsidized and altogether it's about $15-$20,000 and that's with a grant for $5000.

In the end, they don't offer certification, I had no help getting a job or externship site, and I honestly was not prepared enough for actual work after 13 months of Monday though Friday 7pm-11pm. And all of the sudden I have $200 a month in payments for loans that I didn't even know about When I thought I had been paying it off while I was going to school like they told me in the beginning.



All in all if you want a high school like education and environment then this would be fine but I would highly suggest to just stick it out an extra few months at ACC for way cheaper and a better education and actual degree.

Campus Resources: There are two computer labs. They have a solid network and I have never had any issues with printing, web access, or technical issues. The computer teachers are very proficient and experienced. Thank you!

Student Body: Most of the student body consists of lower income students wanting a better life/career. It is diverse in ethnicity, age and personal situations. We are all striving to acheive our own personal goals of success and financial security. I find it very easy to admire every student for their acheivements thus far. I have found that all us have an ease at maintaining friendships outside of school.

Academic Experience: I am a Medical Billing/Coding student. My classes are extremely interesting and well applied to working in this field. I am also happy to announce that all the students are connected to each other in the beginning with starting courses, even though we are all in different areas. ie. Medical Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, Accounting/Business, and Medical Billing and Coding. The teachers and staff have an amazing sense of humor and are very competant. Although, I was nervous at first to go back to school, I have discovered that this has been the most positive and rewarding choice. The workload is very intense and compact, but I personally find this to be very rewarding and positive mode of learning. I have applied and have been accepted as a Mentor and have been helping other students.
