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. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

WARNING ITS NOT WORTH IT! I attended this school and i must say that it is not worth your time, money, or effort. If Medical asaistance or Medical billing and coding is what you desire to do in life than youre better off going to a SUNY or CUNY school. For one its cheaper, two its legit and youll be able to get a job more places with your certificate and experience from internships, and three the curriculum is definitely more up to date community and state colleges. I do not recommend that anyone goes to this school. Its a private owned school so any issues you experience must be dealt with in the school and again its not legit. Ive been on multiple interviews and majority of health facilities will not accept your certificate from New Life Business Institute.

Don't waste your time or money going to this school. They don't own up to their promises (after graduation your promised a laptop that's included in tuition) I never received the laptop and after several months of them giving me the run around I gave up. Not to mention the how ghetto the school is with unqualified teachers and constantly rotating staff. Avoid this school!!

It is a very over priced school that barely has any equipment, structure, or order. Don't waste your time. They makes false promises about the duration of time you will have to attend and then they add more subjects to the curriculum to keep you in longer. So that they can receive more money and you won't receive what is suppose to be dispersed to you. They charge you for books and equipment and the rates don't fall in order with the price they are charging students. They claim the tuition is going towards staff as well but they are greatly under paid and the school is just increasing interest rates off of the students. The school is low budget and very ghetto. A total scam if you ask me. When you rise up concerns they ignore you and lock you out their office claiming that they are in a meeting. To avoid any issues when in all actuality they are doing nothing and could care less about improving the school or meeting the needs of the students. If you continue to bring up issues they threaten you with the appeal to leave. That you can gladly be dismissed because you dont have to be here. The school gets paid once you are with them for a certain period so leaving would make no sense. You leaving you will still have to pay back the government the money you took out for the tuition. When you choose to stay they give you hard time and make it worst for you. There is constant change in staff people are always being fired and some of the teachers hired to work they are not even qualified to teach. In terms with their teaching methods they don't challenge the students. They give you the exact answers to the test and then give you the test the next day. When they send you out to internships you look like an idiot because you aren’t experience and they didn’t provide you with the information you needed to be successful. They Do Not provide you with job placements they can’t even get you a proper internship. They just tell you anything to get to sign up for their program. They offer free lap tops among other things that you never see. The Grants and loans you take out for the tuition they claim that you will only have pay back a certain amount like $50 amount but you end up pay twice and much and it is not even worth the nonsense the school put you through. So where is all the money going? To Shelia who owns the school and compromises peoples futures for her car, name brand bags, and outfits. All they care about is money and a head count. I wouldn't even send my worst enemy to my school. DONOT WASTE YOUR TIME PLEASE !!! Look at other alternatives please you will be very remorseful if you attend this school. You will save yourself the hassle, a lot of money, and the heart ache if you look at other alternatives.
