This school financial aid office is ridiculous.Other
This school financial aid office is ridiculous. They hold on to your refund and don't give you a reason why. You can never get a straight answer. They say you aren't due certain funds even though show that funds have been disbursed to the school. The school is all for making a profit off of students.

If I had toQuite BrightOther
If I had to do it over again, I would NOT GO to BMC! That externship was horrible! And the place they sent me was a joke. Plus, i think the academic advisor they assigned me to is a RACIST. I didn't even get my degree. This school is the worst.

This is the WORST college in the BirminghamBrightArchitecture
This is the WORST college in the Birmingham area. I only stuck with this college because i actually had a couple of teachers that made sure i learned the most that I could. Everytime I had a problem with the financial aide department and to the point i wanted to file a complaint the school would not let me. They would tell me to go tell this person go tell that person. No matter which department you have to do paperwork with i can tell you they will forget something that you needed. Once the financial aide department forgot to get me to take a stupid 5 min quiz about loans....for 3 months i kept calling and going to meet with people to try to figure out why I was not getting a check every month like i was told was going to happen and what did they tell me? There is nothing missing in your file you just have to wait for it like everyone else...guess what...I went to the highest person i could talk to that was over all the departments and he went with me and all of a sudden they found what was missing. Was I able to file a complaint? NOPE! Also the whole thing about them helping you find a job or even a place to intern is a JOKE! I had to find my own place to internship and honestly i do not feel like they really tried. They have put me through hell to finish at this school and they are still sending me new paperwork to fill out that they forgot to have me sign.
