If you are deciding to go back to school (as most people are), Heald may seem like a good place to go: It is not.

As a former student there, there are only two things that you come out of there: a degree that is worthless and mountains of debt that CANNOT be written off in bankruptcy court. Also, their "credits" are not transferable to a state college or University.

The classes are a JOKE: In their English classes, the teachers show you how to construct a sentence. Really? That's what people learn in the first grade in public school for crying out out. As for their technology program, the instructors basically teach you the basics of networking, network security, etc...but nothing that they teach you will help you in the real world with getting a job.

As for job placement, you are on your own. Once you have that piece of paper, they forget about you. To them, you are a dollar sign to them, and for them, that is all they care about.

Bottom line; if you are thinking about going back to school, go to a community college; they are MUCH cheaper, and also, once you graduate from a community college, and if you want to further your education, a community college's credits are actually transferable to any college in the country.

At first heald was a great college in the 3rd quarter all the great tech teachers left, because many changes have taken effect. I haven't learned anything knew since the 4Th quarter. If you can learn how to do networking on your own, don't waste your time going to school unless you are very confident in the school.
