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.

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

The externship program asked students who worked full time being to work on unpaid internships. I personally was never contacted until the placement advisor was about to hit her deadline, & 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, & no one has yet to follow up with me

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.
