Don't waste your time on this school. It's no more than a glorified high school. Nursing program sucked. And they maneuver ways to get money like the way I was handled. I was dropped from the program for failing a lab procedure. But Rhonda Browning (Nurse Instructor) showed that I withdrew so they could charge me for the entire semester of $1200.00 more. This has happened before even though when a student drops a class, they charged me for withdrawing getting additional money. They are rude, the staff is unprofessional, and the the whole idea of getting a BS is a joke. Sabe y o ur money. They have ways not only to get Govt. Assistance but also will find a way to charge you more. Don't trust them. Been sucked for a program not allowed to attend. All nursing instructors are dumber than a brick. And every time you complete courses to be able to go into a program, they continue to add more classes to complete. Took me 5 it's to get to the Nursing Program by adding. Don't trust it. Go to a real Community college like Trident Tech. I have 60 credits but no degree. They keep adding more courses. Now I need 7 more. What a waste of time and money. Don't get sucked in.

Wish I could give them NO stars. Student Services never picks up the phone and when they do. They will direct you to someone who never picks up or return your calls. I left numerous voicemails about my financial aid for WEEKS ! & not one time did I receive a call back !

Overall Rating:

The curriculum and facilities are fine, but the administration needs major reformation. There is always some hoop I have to jump through when registering for the next term, such as a lack of college transcripts (which I turned in my first semester), etc. I don't know if the staff is incompetent, or if it's the work-study people's doing, but registration should not be this much of a hassle.
