My experience with this college was horrible. College recommended by local high schools but they failed to see the programs as something not for 99 percent of its former students.Financial Aid department was not helpful and allow to bully the college students.Don't rely on getting a tutor that department was so rude and demanding reviews even though I refused because a review didn't and shouldn't had an effect on how well or how wonderful the tutor was.The price was nice at the time too the only good perspective.This college is not good and doesn't follow any federal laws and is violating such laws as of now like where they don't recognize all adults as independent and not a dependent even though the student isn't claimed on a parents tax return.I have a cousin who attended this college who had to marry his girlfriend and the college wouldn't recognize the marriage even though by US law 2 adults who marry each other can't be claimed on a parents tax return and they demanded the girlfriend he married got pregnant and demanded a full physical in the presence of the Financial Aid department to prove pregnancy.Of course after the cousin wife parents my cousin father had to dish out money for tuition they both got their degree.Just pick another college is my advice a college who follows real laws.I am sure making someone stay in a course is also illegal according to state and federal laws.I am sure your background checks wasn't accurate in the case of the now expelled student back in 2013 who was banned from receiving a certificate in addictions counseling is also not too happy and it took 2 years to finally receive such report to deny him admission and to then expelled him even though he followed your rules. This college is one stupid joke of an institution.I'm sure the reviewer of Allegany College of Maryland would make me feel better by calling. But that isn't happening. Your college is the most laughable in the state of Maryland.
