Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

I did not have a great experience from attending this school. I took a Securities Industry Essentials course and the instructor spoke more about his personal experiences, politics, and the future economy more than he did actually instructing the class of the material. Also the text book did not come with the online access codes and the school simply told me to handle it with Exam Fx. They refused to release the codes to me.

The school did a very good job in preparing me for my State Exam, for my P&C Insurance Producers Licence. Everyone at the school was very nice and extremely helpful. I had Steve as a professor and he was extremely knowledgeable and willing to go above and beyond to help his students.

Only putting 5 start so you can see! The testing centers are awesome here. it’s STOPS at that! Teacher give you only what knowledge they know from their work experience but they are NOT teachers. You gain more knowledge from the online test they have then you do from the teachers. I would be extremely careful before signing up for classes in this place. You have a “full year” to do your hrs but you must do them back to back. Almost a month or more of classes that have to be attended, and you are NOT given any* credit for coming in for a few hrs. I understand you must be up to part in hrs, and that you must come to class, but if you work and you can only come in for 5/6hrs out of an 8hr day they give you NO credit. Not even half credit for those hours that you attended. You must come in the hrs they state and nothing else! This work good for people that don’t work, or people that can take a month and half of from work but be carefull before signing up for those reasons. It’s taken me almost 7months and I still haven’t been able to complete the 80hrs I need for my 2 classes. I might ended up loosing my $1,000 because they will not count the hrs that I attended on a 5/6hr base. Also if you sing up for classes, even tho they say they have “online” classes those are classes that are given by a 3rd source party and NOT them, and they don’t allow you to switch between “campus classes or online” because they don’t actually give the classes online themselves. Makes it kinda hard to do the HRS if your a regular working person. Night classes are usually very low volumes and get canceled a lot making it horrible because you can’t catch up on HRS or work. Would do my do diligence before coming here. If you have no work from 8-4pm this is a great option for you. Workers be aware of all “rules and regulations” before moving further
