To start off with, this school lied multiple times just to get me in the door. I was told they had housing, after I signed the paperwork to be admitted into this they told me the housing Dept was closing after the end of the year but it gets better. They also told me the loans I was taking for housing would still help just that it was not going to be school sponsored housing, this was a lie as well because looking forward into my financial plan the loans for housing were still being taken and housing was no longer being factored in BUT there was no extra money from and there was actually less extra in the new plan than the old one. I don't want to harp on the teachers they seem to actually care it is the money grubbers in the offices that are to blame. This said I still didn't feel like I was getting my money's worth out of the courses, but, luckily all my generals were done at a tech college. We sit in a room for 3 to 4 hours and have maybe 30 min of lectures or teaching the remainder of the time we '''work' on projects in silence. Great use of tuition. To top it off if you choose to withdraw you have to personally walk your form around the office hunting down people who need to sign it. This would be ok if they were where they were supposed to be. Another major issue is the constant evacuations because of bomb threats there have been at least 4 threats made in one quarter. As for accreditation i have not looked but I doubt they are accredited as the school I am transferring too only accepts 3 courses of their whole curriculum for the same degree. Not even their generals transfer out. Overall this school won't last another year or two the 2500 ish student body from 2010 is a lie the current building has about 10 class rooms that can seat about 30 studens max so the max occupancy of the school is only about 300 or so. Don't waste your time go to point park if you want to go to school in Pittsburgh it is where everyone else jumping ship is going.

I remember going to this school and it was horrible. They inflate everything from job placement rate 83% (how is that possible when there last successful graduate was in 1993? 21 years ago), to graduation rate they say 88% when really the number is 48%. Job placement comes from craigslist and not to mention the 11 billion dollar lawsuit pending from the Dept of Justice. Don't go here avoid at all cost. Now I know what many of you will say I couldn't hack it college isn't for anyone. #1 I could hack it I just hacked it at an actual college (graduated last december). #2. This isn't a college (notice how the name college never appears in the name this is an institute closely related to mental institute). It is basically a overgrown high school. Save your money go to a state school with all the same equipment and 1/3 of the cost. The grad rates are actually a lot lower now at 12% and the program I studied no longer has a license after failing 3 standard by the dept of education

Do not contact these people... not even a simple inquiry. WARNING... they will call you incessantly for the rest of your life! A different number every time as OHC Pittsburgh and you have to block each one!

My daughter wanted to go to this school so bad, I had to take Out a 17,000 parent loan because the tuition is so high and we can't get any help. She wasn't doing that great in her classes and not once did they try to get help for her, then after 8 mths of her being there it's time to take Out another 17,000 loan!!! So needless to say I had to bring her home because they sure don't help you trying to find other ways like student loans or anything!!!
