Run from this school! This school is fraudulent and misleading. They have problems keeping staff including program deans among dozens of other issues. The sonography program is full of holes. They lost their accreditation, that should tell you all you need to know. Do not go here!

Be Aware of the staff Mr.Ricard and Mr. Marcus are the most unprofessional mean I ever met in my life. They will draw you in this school selling you dreams about how great this school. But in reality they are only money hungry. Without the students this school will not thrive. He is my story....I called the school because I want to be withdrawn. Because I feel like it would not be worth it at the end paying a large amount of debt to make 15.00 and hour. Mr. Rich called my phone In a angry tone and told me I’m not making any sense and what I’m Doing is stupid. He also said he is scared for me and feel bad for me. When I came to this school I was very personal and told Mr.Richard my situation at home with my mom. During the phone call he said I feel bad for you you will continue to live with your mom for the rest of your life and will not amount to anything and then hung up the phone in my face. This is unprofessional and as an African American woman I should not be spoken to or put down by a Man of color. Another thing when I first spoke to someone from this school Mr. Marcus was very unprofessional using phrase like “MA” like I was his home girl from the streets. If you value respect do not come to this school

Overall Rating:

Avoid! Beware, this is NOT an accredited school which is required to be able to sit for board exams, especially for medical imaging, i.e. xray and ultrasound techs, without which you can’t get a job. Academic fraud is the norm, as students are allowed to forge signatures on competency checklists so they can stay in school (even graduate) so that the school can continue to get paid.

My only teacher was Mr. Selby, he was the best always on time, had good explanations, for me he was an inspiration, he had so much creativity to teach us. Their staff is good well wen i was there it was a good staff always happy, always helping us, some people say is a bad college but the thing is if you don’t want to study always you are going to find something to talk bad about.
