5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: i like having my classes at night so i have the days to get whatever i need to done, may it be errands, school work and spend the days with my girls.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: the work load as of late has been a bit heavy due to the subject, but i am managing tog get by.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: it sounds really great. they help find a job in the career you're looking at and you can always come back to get refreshed in a topic that is needed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my experiences have been pretty good with my instructors, slight hiccup with one, but i passed the class and that's is all that matters. I like that the classes are smaller and are set up discussion friendly. more time can be spent really understanding the time topic at hand.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It looks good they told me what i needed to know during the application process and even after, most, if not all, students got internships and or externships with the jobs and careers they are looking at and if I, for whatever reason don't get an externship, they can help me in other ways. I think with IBMC I can go far with my career goals.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: well, with my program, which is medical billing and coding specialist, it is pretty fast paced and a bit heavy right now with learning medical terminology and will be heavier when I start physiology and anatomy. I like my terminology instructor, she is definitely set in the real world when it comes to learning and remembering terminology, in the fact that is is hard and that not all terms will be remembered and that spelling is pretty crazy and close together. so she suggests using the term speller and breaking the words down as needed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my experience has been very good at this school. all the teachers and staff have been approachable and mostly said what they mean and intend. They also work with students and their schedules and have been honest about what is needed and expected of each student and answer any and all questions asked of them. I would definitely come back to this school and I have even suggested it to my husband for when he gets out of the military and any friends who have brought up going back to school. I really like it here. the work is a bit fast paced, but that is expected with a school oriented this way. it definitely gets you ready for the fast paced world.

Overall Experience: I wish I hadn't wasted my time here. I was promised transferring credits to any state school upon completion, which has turned out false. We were told we could take 3 certification tests upon program completion, but after completion we were only allotted 1. When we tried to express our grievances as a class, the counselor sent in to listen began laughing multiple times, mocking us when we said we were surprised that there was no money spent on expanding our program while a new Cosmetology wing was built. Melanie said "Well if you want to use the cosmetology wing, go ahead *hahahaha*"

Overall Experience: This degree has helped me find zero jobs. Counselors have never reached out to me to see if I still have a job. I've never been referred to a job in my field. I have wasted my time and money in this "school", and am ashamed every time I see it on my resume.

Academic Flexibility: They told me my credits were unlikely to transfer, so I shouldn't even bother. We were told that if we missed more than two class periods in a 5 week time frame we would be failed from the course and have to re-take it. A fellow student had a trip she'd cleared with the school before starting, only to be harassed daily on the phone while she was gone. She was forced to re-take classes and ended up dropping out as a result.

None of my credits have been transferable from this establishment as of yet.

Career Services: There have been none. I have not been contacted, provided with information regarding opportunities, or seen any alumni network of any kind. The job prospects counselor was never in her office when I was required to speak to her. I've since tried to transfer credits and have been denied. I wasted 18 months and $30,000 on this program so they could use my financial aid money to build a Cosmetology wing, and use me for networking to other gullible people they can milk more financial aid from.

Overall Experience: I honestly don't know where to begin in a way that will accurately articulate the experience I had at this "college". I'll start by saying I have completed their program, so I certainly have a foundation for my grievances. I wasted 18 months in their "Computer Support Specialist" program, in which I had multiple teachers openly admit to our class that they had yet to read the book. Aside from one committed teacher, Justin, the remainder of our teachers either saw us as a paycheck, or realized the farce they were participating in and left after 1 ten week session.

I was sold the program under the guise that it was going to focus on networking and computer support. I asked, and it was confirmed multiple times, that this program was to be on par with the similar courses at Front Range Community College. In the 18 months I spent in their program, we did not look at one server rack. We did not work with any modern, small client desktop computers. As far as server side applications, software as a service (SAAS) and cloud computing, all we heard were the names. The program covered information enough to fix your grandmothers old windows XP machine, and understand the parts inside. If you can identify a CPU, explain the difference between RAM and HDD, connect your computer to a wireless network, then you are overqualified for this program.

The level of support for this program was so poor that we did not have a functioning wireless internet connection to run any tests, download software mentioned in our textbooks, or use Office 365's Lyve, a webcam/chat client we spent a week learning about. Furthermore, bringing these issues up to staff, we were met with denial, ignorance, and in Melanie's case, she laughed at us.

Overall Experience: The externship program was similarly over-hyped, with students who worked full time (and most with families) being asked to work on unpaid internships. I personally was never contacted until the placement advisor was about to hit her deadline, and by that time I had found a job that would count for this externship of my own accord. I Have never been contacted by their job placement advisor, and no one has yet to follow up with me to see if I still have a job. The unpaid option was the only option provided in the way of employee recruiting.

I've since tried to transfer this "education" to CSU into their computer science program, only to be denied, likely due to the substandard of this school. When applying for transfer, colleges generally use a CEEB (College Entrance Examination Board) code. When I called to ask for this code, no one on campus knew what it was.

I was told they would be expanding their computer lab, that we'd be getting new computers & our own classroom complete with tools. In the 18 months I was there, they did nothing to expand our program, provided us with personal laptops running windows 7 when 8 was current & 10 was on imminent, taking close to $1000 dollars of our financial aid to pay for the laptops. Looking up the model online after receiving it, they were listed closer to $400

In that same 18 months, they built a new, "state-of-the-art" Cosmetology wing

The only way we could work on our networking assignments was to set up an intranet between all of our computers, using donated hardware. We had to set this system up EVERY CLASS, because we never had a dedicated classroom
