This school has really changed my life for the better. I was a sales associate at AE, which I didn't mind. But I like technology a lot more than selling clothes. I started coming to ECPI back in 2009 and opted for the two year AAS degree. The classes were pretty easy to keep up with, not too much homework. I'm not gonna lie, I did need some help in a few classes (I hate College algebra) but tutoring was always available. Everyone here has one goal, to help the students succeed. Toward the end of the program I had an externship at Azaleos which is where I am currently employed. I highly recommend this school over any other computer/electronics institution in Charlotte.

ECPI was the best choice I have ever made. I started right out of High School and graduated with my AAS in Network Security a little over 2 years later. The staff is very professional, the faculty is top notch. If I needed help, I just asked the professor and he would stay after class and tutor me for as long as it took. I used to be a shift supervisor at Wendy??s, it was no dream job by far. When offered the position to work at a helpdesk, I was nervous about it being my first ??IT? job out of college, but it was actually a pretty smooth transition. Attending ECPI has turned my life around and I would recommend it to anyone looking to do the same.

It??s a pretty good school. As long as you stay awake and study it??s a cakewalk. Or at least it was for me. Job placement afterwards, in the IT field, was awesome. Not sure about the medical side as I am a computer whiz. Dave had me an interview setup during my internship. I was finished in June, 2010 and had an IT job less than a month later. I have absolutely no complaints with this place and will recommend it to anyone. PS: the place is SACS accredited, so most or all of your credits transfer. I learned the hard way by trying ITT Tech for a few months.

Not sure why there's bad reviews. The school is cool. A lot of the students are a little "ego" sensitive which they let get in their way of their academics, but as long as you study you'll do good. Its been a little over a year since I

I am a college graduate and I have my BSN in Science and I am a RN. I am working on my MSN and will graduate in the fall of this year. I have a family memeber who took the Medical Image Technology program. Against all judgment from research that I had gathered I tried to encourge him to go to a community college or an University. He is married with 2 children. He quit his job, drove 3 hours each way for almost 2 years and the program did not graduate his class ontime. Gas was almost $5.00 per gal. He did not get any unemployment or any extra finacial aid to support his family. His wife worked 2 full time jobs to care for there needs. This school charged almost $30,000 for a useless Diploma. My family member was thrown to the wolves with no help of ECPI. This is not was ECPI portrays in advertisment. ECPI claim is you will be better off after graduating from their program. My family member left a 17 year career, is $30,000 in debt, can't find a job because every job he applies for tells him you need a degree. He was forced to continue online to go to the ECPI online program because his credits would not transfer anywhere else. So, that is more money for ECPI. He has been out of work for over 2 years and during this time ECPI has done nothing but made a phone call after a threat of legal action against them for false advertisment. I encourage anyone that has been caught up in the lies of ECPI to take a stand against the school for justice for the little person. In speaking to anyone at ECPI they only state lies that others have found jobs and that is not true. This school has gotten rich off of money that does not belong to them because ECPI did not live up to their end of the bargain. ECPI has no loyalty to their students so why should the students have any loyalty to ECPI. Get justice even if you have to go to the legal system. There is strength in numbers or stand alone.

My husband wanted to change careers and quit his job and enrolled into this Campus. He got up at 4:30am every morning and drove 3 1/2 hours to school. He did this for 1 year and 10 months. He took Medical Technology. (BAD CHOICE). This school states they will help with job placement. The only thing they helped was themselves to $30,000 for a program that offers NOTHING! You can't get a job because you need a 4 year degree. ECPI did nothing to help him find a job. They changed instructors and the way the program was suppose to be done throughout the course. The credits don't transfer. They graduated 3 months late. So not only does he have a worthless Diploma. He has no job and a resume that states he has been out of work for 2 years and we are $30,000 in debt. DON"T waste your time or money go to a real college and when you graduate get a real job. My husband is worse off then when he started!!!

Pros: you had a place to park your care.

Cons: The classes kept changing. No real guidance or instruction for the future, NO job placement or recruitment, the staff didn't care about the students
