Student Reviews and Ratings for Midlands Technical College
Graduated from here for health sciences. Professors were good. Administration should do better. Best Instructor = Draft. I didn't like the school. However, pass state certification on 1st attempt. Four hours of study per day paid off!Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Different from the Lexington/West Columbia campus. My biggest gripe is the parking. Never had any classes over here, but the times I did have to go to this campus, this was the main problem.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Midlands tech is a magical place where the book store sells you books that aren't in stock causing you to get left behind in your class. Can you buy them elsewhere? Nope they make sure that there is a moac code you can only get from the book store. No returns or take backs.They frequently loose records and information like test scores, student records(how is that possible) and your car information so they can charge you for parking (by accident)To top it all off if you have any complaints you will not be acknowledged or helped so expect that. Also teachers are not obligated to teach you the correct information so your screwed if you get a teacher who doesn't care which is 60% of them judging by all the other bad reviews.You're welcome 😄Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Absolutely AWFUL. The most unorganized school I’ve ever attended. They messed up my transcript atleast 5 times and I’ve called trying to make a change with absolutely no response. A terrible excuse of a school. Find teachers that can fully speak English, understand how to work the internet, and have actual interest in taking care of the students. Midlands is truly terrible. Don’t waste your time.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Terrible school. Don't waste your time or money. All they care about is money. The fees are outrageous and you HAVE to pay some of them out of pocket, regardless of what scholarships you have. They will not inform you on how anything works. Definitely do not take online classes, the tests are broken and will not let you take them. Then you will be blamed for not taking them. Professors will take absolutely no responsibility. If you complain about it, you will conveniently get kicked out of class for some BS reason. The majority of the staff are incompetent and clearly miserable with their jobs. They do not care about students. The staff here should go take some classes at a real college to learn to do their jobs.Long story short - avoid at all costs.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
