This company calls itself a "college", but it is merely a scam to make money off of our government. At first the promises of a good education with employment to follow is exciting. But, then you hit the classroom, and regret sets in. The dialysis technician course had an ill-equipped staff and a poorly taught program (that is, of course when teaching was actually done), The teachers were not able to control unruly students, and fights broke out often. Cheating was the norm, and test answers were given to us just before we took the tests, assuring that all would pass. For our externship hours, there was not enough dialysis centers willing to take all of the students. Then it became evident that there was not going to be any job opportunities for all of the students that this "college" took in. All that I received from this experience was a heft debt ($15,000 to be exact) and regret for wasting a year of my life on empty promises. I hope that this review helps others turn the other way!

I took out a government loan of $15,000 to attend a 9-10 month dialysis technology program in Metairie, La. The quality of education at this "school" was very poor. By the time I found out what this "school" was about, it was too late to get a refund. Blue Cliff College = hefty tuition + poor education!

I do not recommend this school. This company takes in too many students and promises all of them that there will be a job waiting at the end of the course. Please do your homework before sinking your money into this school. I wish that I had done my homework. It would have saved me a lot of money and time. BEWARE!
