This school wants you to take a classQuite BrightAccounting
This school wants you to take a class that isn't in their 'plan' and make you pay for it yourself even though its a prerequisite for the course. They take all of your grant money and leave you with nothing to cover classes and expect you to use only loans to pay for any classes you take and out of pocket for classes they don't want to approve financial aid to pay for. They won't accept your financial aid for any classes unless you are in a 'degree' program.

Trying to get my Master Promissory Note acceptedBrightOther
Trying to get my Master Promissory Note accepted by SPC, 3rd time submitted it. Financial Aid at any campus or phone can be compared to talking to the village idiot; none of their "counselors" have a clue. They might be able to buy a clue with my loan money they don't seem to know anything about. Counselors don't seem to know any of the answers unless they ask someone else because they don't have access to the answer. Never have I been enrolled in a school that doesn't have a specific admissions or financial aid counselor who doesn't only work on your case; it's like cattle call at the ranch...first come, first serve. These so-called counselors have no idea what to do or tell you because they 'just don't know the answer, let me ask someone else'. Very disorganized school, online program even more disorganized. FIND A BETTER SCHOOL THAN THIS ONE!!

I graduated using pell grant money.Computer Science
I graduated using pell grant money. My degree name was changed 1-2 months before hand - I guess they can do what they want, but the new name sounded bogus like a certificate. They also screwed up my GPA so at graduation time I didn't get the gold ropes for Honors. Afterward, I had to make a few phone call to get it corrected - I got the ropes in the mail but it is not the same - Thank you so much you retards. Also, the counselors at Cl-campus did not give good advice or help me plan for a higher education. All I wanted to know is what classes and what degree should I be enrolled in to get a B.S in Computer Science-they couldn't do it properly so I wasted many credits and pell grant money. Now I can no longer get this grant because my credits are too much. As far as getting a job after graduating, they have no connections to the outside world, a reference from a teacher didn't seem to help. The job cork board had like six posts-and a not so helpful student that runs it. No job fairs-no chance of internship.So, new plan is to go to USF with current situation and finish there.
