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 an extensive number of students.

Overall Rating:

The students are very annoying during freshman to sophomore year, but when tech finally comes in at junior year, it's all good for the reason being that you'll be in a tech program for half of the day and deal with loud and obnoxious children for only a set period of time. Don't make the same mistake as me because just about everyone has a very short temper and you'll be stepping on eggshells for a long time. If they lash out at you, be sure to lash back and put them in their place. Good luck to all future freshman and I hope this works for y'all :')

I finished the program of medical billing and coding yesterday (6/19/19). My journey was a wonderful experience. My teacher Mrs. Allers made it fun, she’s also very knowledgeable and always seeking ways on how to better improve the program for the students. She’s by far the best instructor at Osceola Technical College. If anyone is interested in a career in the medical field without being hands on with patients; then billing and coding is the career for you. Having to go through the process like financial aid, the bookstore might be a bit discouraging but I am glad I didn’t quit or gave up on Osceola Technical College because this program with Mrs. Allers made it all worthwhile, she truly pours everything in her students.

Wouldn’t wish this school on anyone. I signed up for the cyber security program and first 3 months no teacher. Finally got a teacher and took another 4 months to get textbooks and and come March 13 I was told it was my last day when I wasn’t informed about it or anything. Oh and don’t think that it will be any hands on work too no you literally watch videos on the computer for 6 hours. Horrible school DO NOT WASTE YOURE MONEY. I feel like I completely wasted 7 months there for absolutely nothing.

First year this school has the dental program . I was overall excited for this and looking forward for the experience and couldn’t wait to begin my future . Unfortunately being the end of the year . This class is not at all what I expected. As a hands on school we mostly did book work and classwork and sometimes nothing at all for a few hours . The school itself was very unorganized with this program and had no idea what they were doing . It’s the end of May and we should be getting into externships Which is part of our curriculum but instead we will be in class the whole summer instead of getting the hands on training we need and are required to have . It’s very disappointing especially having to pay money out of your own pocket and not getting everything out of the program. I truly feel like I wasted a year on this school when I could have went to an actual Dental Assisting school else where . I %100 don’t recommend this program to anyone . You will just waste your time . The assistant principal himself was no help at all . All of the students had to pay for the National Honors Society. Something that should be rewarded to the student for free for those who had good grades and good attendance had to pay $50. Making it seem like we had to have certain requirements in order to get this . The whole school got accepted into this program not just the ones with good grades and attendance. Making a lot of us realize anyone can be in the program no matter what cause the school just wanted to make an extra $50 from all the students . Truly sucks knowing all the other programs will be doing externships and we will just be sitting in class all summer not getting ready for when we actually get a dental assisting job in an office . Don’t waste your time , Find a better school that’s serves its purpose.
