ABOVE AVERAGE

53% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Tribeca Flashpoint College completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

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. This index 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 picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

I honestly wouldn't recommend going here unless you have a lot of money to put towards it. But buckle up because I have quite a bit to cover regarding my experience.The loan company they use itself is its own nightmare giving me an almost 12% interest rate at this point and not having my cosigner be there to help fill out the information with me (someone who better understood loans). Its a nightmare that killed my credit and made it impossible to even get a refinance at a lower rate.But as for the school itself I had quite a few problems. Some of which I admit isnt the direct fault of the school but were nevertheless inflamed by attending.1. THE INSTRUCTORS: there were fantastic teachers there who were fun and super helpful and I appreciate everything they did. However, there were also two teachers who were rather unhelpful and honestly kind of rude. I had asked one for help because I had missed a day due to being sick and I was hoping he could at least link me to some videos or give me a brief rundown of what I had missed. What I got was "you need to ask one of your peers/someone else" which made me pretty upset because im not paying my classmates to teach me, im paying this person. Another problem I had with an instructor was that they were constantly putting students with experience and industry knowledge on a pedestal and telling the rest of the class to bemore like these students. This was to a bunch of people who are coming here with no experience at all and it was extremely disheartening to be compared to people who had previous teaching.2. THE SCHEDULING: to be fair I was warned that the schedule was going to be fast paced so I do take responsibility for that, however I still feel like its important to give people a heads up regarding how heavy the workload is. I DO NOT recommend attending if you are dependent on a job and live anywhere outside the bounds of the CTA. I had to take the Metra in and to and from school was a 45 minute ride and the school isnt accommodating for this and needing to work. The amount of work I was given after school was impossible while working a part time job to the point where I had to quit (thankfully my parents supported me during this time). The work load combined with needing a job was so intensive that I ended up being sleep deprived and was almost admitted to a hospital if it had gotten any worse but long term had to go on medication via my primary doctor.3. THE RESULT: im going to come out and say that I didnt graduate and my decision to leave was due to my declining health as a result of attending. Two instructors were absolute angels in helping me get through the year at least but otherwise academic accommodation wasnt helpful and some instructors didnt seem to care much for my situation and even made it worse. Im glad that I did leave as I havent seen good reviews regarding graduation to employment experiences and the debt that ive already aquired from the one year is crippling enough and my esteem about my work has taken enough of a hit from the first year alone.This was just my experience and may be an isolated incident in all fairness with some faults falling on me as well but I wouldnt want someone to go through what I did so I wanted to share.

Are you serious? My son is paying over $750.00 a month for his past tuition. 750.00 PER MONTH!! A warning to ALL students of this scam. This, "school " , has VERY few success stories. I, and many more, have filed a lawsuit against this fraudulent scam. We will win. They have no defense. Stay away. Try for Columbia College. Invest in a future.

Unorganized finance department, getting emails years later that I am both paid off completely and that I still owe money to the school. Far overpriced for the lax education. Don’t waste your time/money
