Overall Experience: how many times do I have to answer the same question?

Academic Flexibility: Credit transfer was seriously overstated. You will be lucky to get 20 credits transferred. But, they don't tell you that. They like to make you think that you can transfer all of them. Class flexibility was the one bright spot. Day and evening classes.

Overall Experience: Waste of money. Shop on Amazon for IT study materials and courses. You will save a lot. Avoid this school since the degrees offered do not count. For example. I took Technical Writing at Interface. It does not count at the new school I am going to since I have to take Technical writing again! Don't believe the hype. You will not get a job just because you have a few certificates and a bogus degree. You will have to get very lucky to have someone hire you without experience. You also might not be able to do your job. In this case you will begin understanding just how much you did not learn about the real world of IT at this school. Your credits most likely will not transfer at all to a university. You are pretty much burning 2 or so years of financial aid that will not transfer. The only reason a graduate of this school would be attractive in the job market is because employers can get the skills they want for peanuts that a knock-off college grad is willing to work for vs hiring the Computer Science major at a premium. Don't think this is the last school you will be going to. Hopefully it won't even be your first.

Overall Experience: Unless you are already in your filed of study working, this school is a waste of time and money. The "degrees" they offer are not real. They do not matter in the real world at all. When employers see AAT Network Administrator or AAT Computer Systems Support they already know its a made up degree not worth the paper its printed on. The certifications are the only appeal to the IT program but, one could attain these certifications at a much lesser expense on their own. The instructors do not "teach" the courses. They might give a few tips here and there but definitely do not help students prepare for the full load of the subject they are studying. Some "instructors" are not even capable of teaching and like to say "Well, its in your book." The faculty like to present a disguise of giving a you-know-what about you, but when you are done they cut you off. Won't even accept your invitation on Linked In to be a contact. I went back to take a certification exam and figured people would say hi and ask me how I was doing. Nope. just a number. I ran into one of my instructors and asked him to show me how to make a Cat 5 cable and he just said "Oh you don't have to worry about that, everything is wireless now." Yeah, wireless telco rooms that don't need cross connecting. Right. The testing computer I was on was so slow that it froze for 20 minutes straight near the end of my exam. I would recommend a prospective student to seek out a community college that will transfer credits to a university and start using your loans there. You can save a lot of money that way and be able to attain a nationally respected degree. Don't waste your financial aid at Interface.

Online Courses: Lots of filler material in this program. You will find out.

Student Body: The students are all great at this school. It's just a shame that you can't communicate the fact that they are being made into suckers.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The It program is way overpriced. You could save a ton of money buying study materials on Amazon rather than pay tuition for this course because that is all you will be doing is self study. Why would you want to pay somewhere around 3 to 4 times as much as you have to for self study with limited instruction from "instructors". All you get is the ICND1 and 2 books, and a Network simulation sandbox software for the CCNA. You get a textbook and a key for a Transcender for the Linux course. The pattern goes on. You get a textbook and a piece of software. And they charge a price that reflects a professor teaching the course. Nope. You get a "Go home and read your books." type of instructor. You get a "Well, its in your textbook" kind of instructor when you ask them a question. Don't say you weren't warned. Don't cry when you go through the course and realize the same thing.

Career Services: Sure, when you are a student the job placement person will fill your inbox daily with things found on Craigslist. I suppose its like having someone search in all the places you would search yourself. The job placement in the IT field here is a joke unless you like the idea of working for West for $11/hr. Once you graduate they all ignore you. I've asked to be placed on the job referral list several times after graduation and I would get alerts for maybe a week and then the lady would simply take me off the mailing list, which is petty, since it requires no effort to simply include someone in a list. If you are going to this school and think you are going to become an IT stud upon graduation don't say you weren't warned.

Campus Resources: They have a standard lab with computers. And a break room with a vending machine that doesn't like to make change for dollar bills.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: The availability to any instructor is great. The instructors give their phone numbers to their students so that we can contact them at any time.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The job opportunities at the school are outstanding. Interface employs a lady that does nothing but look for jobs for all of the students and even for people who have already graduated.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The academics at the school are what we need to learn for every class we are in. Emily, my instructor, has a tremendous amount of homework we are required to do.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have had nothing but great time management. I work a full time job and then go to school at night. It is a wonderful feeling that I am going to be changing my life.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: There are a few things I have to pay for that I didn't have to pay for in my last attendence at Interface. Of course that makes it a little bit harder but I think I can keep up.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: The things I learned in the online classes really helped me with my daily life. Some of the subjects really made me think.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The resources on campus include a lab and a lunch room. Every one of the students there is required to use the lab a certian amount of hours a week. When you are in the lunch room everyone talks to each other.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Everything works so fast at Interface, I don't know much about computers but I know I like the speed.

4 College Senior

Student Body: A typical student at Interface College, I believe, is looking to move forward with their life. Everyone is extremely friendly and helpful.

Campus Resources: They have plenty of computers for everyone. They all work and if one doesn't work it is fixed or replaced promptly. Sure, some networks go down, but they have redundancy so there is always another network to log into. And they have good coffee.

Online Courses: At first i thought these online courses were going to be easy. I figured I would join the procrastinators club for the last leg of the program. I was dead wrong. The assignments are challenging and have real world applications. In business math you start with Algebra and progress into a full blown depreciation schedule of several types. It at that point that the wheels start turning in the head about managing a business. The Technical writing leg of the course is engaging. You will write a novel's worth of assignments by the time the course is completed. The real gem is the business ethics course. This is where your mind opens up to the entire world around you because you are engaged constantly with real world issues involving ethical practices in business and how those practices are compromised by many on a daily basis. One might think that they can coast through the Gen Ed program at the end, but I am here to tell you that you should prepare yourself to continue putting your nose in a book every night. You do get used to it and you will notice the empowerment you have for gaining all of this knowledge and the ability to apply it.

Career Services: Sure, times might not be as stellar as they once were, but that doesn't stop the career placement service at this school from absolutely scouring the planet for not just filed related jobs, but any job. It took me about a month and a half to find suitable employment once I got serious about looking. The reason why I got this job is because the placement specialist is familiar with numerous employers in the area and can vouch for the students at this school. That is like having a super reference on your resume. The placement specialist spends her workdays not only finding jobs to put in the inboxes of students past and present, she also helps get your resume out while you are doing other things in life. Its like having a job search agent working 40 hours a week just to find you a job. If you can't get a job with her help then you simply were not willing to do what it took to get the job. That means cutting the hair, shaving, taking a shower, brushing the teeth, ironing the clothes, learning to tie a double Windsor, shining the shoes, practicing your interviewing techniques and fine tuning your resume to fit the job description. The course that we all take, Professional Development couldn't possibly leave any student unprepared for the workforce. Definitely an A+ rating on this service for facing some serious challenges with placement in this economy and still being able to find a way to deliver.

Tuition & Financial Aid: These guys are lightning fast at processing financial aid. I remember 3 years ago when I simply had an idea attend this school. I went in and asked a few questions and two weeks later I was attending my first class without a hitch. They will find grants for you and are very knowledgeable about loan management.

Academic Experience: This is not your ordinary school. They are very flexible with both day and night classes and can switch your schedule if life requires you to. There are no easy paths of study. The school is designed to qualify you for quite a variety of jobs. The way people learn here is by taking guidance from the instructors and then putting that guidance to work at home studying and applying the concepts shown in class. The instructors are more than helpful, the problem is that many simply cannot find it in them to ask for the help and instead decide to come on here and slander the school because they were too lazy to open their books and study. The only way you learn here is by absolutely dedicating yourself to your studies and applications of labs. You have to forego much of your life's entertainment and replace that time with study. It is the only way to complete the assignments on time. The benefit of focusing on the studies is the fact that you absolutely WILL learn the material. If you are not willing to study and simply opt for memorizing the answers to the certification exams that can be found online for a price, then you will not be effective in your chosen field.

Academic Experience: Professor Could Have Cared Less. One professor was great, the other lousy and could have cared less.So I guess It depends on what course you take.

Overall Experience: Liked It, but Sadly Disappointed in the End Result – I feel like a sucker for attending this school. To their credit there were a couple of people who really genuinely cared about the students, and a couple who should retire! The "placement" is a joke and the very word should legally be taken out of all schools period. It is a fake term designed to lure you in and spend a lot of money making their business successful. I am proud of graduating but sadly disappointed in the end result.
