This school borders on being a total fraud. Online instructors are seldom available. One instructor got miffed at me because I corrected her on a particular code. But that's just the small stuff. This course was very expensive, $20,000 as opposed to $2400 for the same course at a local community college. I took the medical coder/biller course. Was told at the beginning of the course that this was a great profession to get into for a work at home business. I'm retired and thought this would be just the thing I need. Well, after I finished the course and asked for help with starting a home business, their story changed. The guidance department said "Oh, before you start a coding business from home you need to have coding experience out in the field. You need to find an entry level position at a doctor's office, etc. Well, I'm a 57 year old male. I'm not a good fit as a receptionist at a doctor's office or any other office for that matter. Plus, like I mentioned, I'm 57 years old. I don't have several years to work in a medical office. I wanted to work from home. But they just ignored me and never helped me with one damn thing. In fact, when I mentioned my concerns about finding a job in the medical coding field, one counselor suggested I go back to my previous profession. That's real good advice, isn't it? Now I have a college loan to pay off and nothing....absolutely nothing to show for it. When I retired a couple years ago I was totally debt free. No house payment, no car payment, but now I have this no good college loan to pay back. They knew from the start that I wanted to work from home but they deceived me by not telling me about having to work out in the field for several years beforehand. I would never recommend this school to ANYONE. If you want to go into the medical billing and coding profession, find a local vocational school where you can get the same education for a lot less money.

i was taking online medical courses for a position as a medical assistant and my laptop crashed, so i contacted them and one of the teachers kept bragging me to finish the assignments. i told her i couldn't and the desktop computer doesn't have the programs my laptop has. so they kicked me out of the college just because i couldn't finish the courses. now they keep sending these loan checks that i have to pay back, which i was told financial aid would take care of. i dont have the money to pay them back, so when i receive it in the mail, i just tear it up and throw it away.

Pros: you get to keep a free laptop.

Cons: they are liars.

If you want to throw A LOT of money away on deficient education then this is the school for you! All employees at the school lie, they are VERY unorganized, and if you have questions or concerns they him haw around. I was very very disappointed in the "college".
