In the design program, they cancel classes MONTHSQuite BrightArt & Design Department
In the design program, they cancel classes MONTHS in advance that are needed to graduate then explain you need to take something to fill that credit in that has nothing to do with your field. The councilors are useless and the teachers are part time and act like they have better things to do then teach.

Question
DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL!!Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL!!
They have treated me so poorly. This school is self-absorbed and all they care about is their pay. I have only been there a year in June and I have had more troubles than one can imagine. To add to the issue the problems were ones they created. I am a very smart, straight A student wanting to get a good job just like everyone else and the stuff I have had to go through with them has put me to the point where I almost dropped out of school completely. All the things they put me through while being there would take hours to write about but a few are

1.Putting my account on hold because someone typed my address in wrong and then not being able to sign up for classes that had just opened that day so I was left with classes I didn't even need.

2.One of the teachers I had dropped me completely out of her class because I was not able to do her very first assignment due to the fact that my computer would not work and it was a Sunday that it was due and so the library was out of the question. I had begged her and told her my situation multiple times but she would not retake me. To add to the matter I am an honor roll student and I do not just skip out on homework

3.Due to the top issue I was dropped from my financial aide completely that I needed to buy a new laptop and I had a class and book I had already paid for that I could not refund.

4.They harassed me for 650 dollars that needed to be paid a week from the date she dropped me or It was going to be sent to collections. This is extremely unfair because I have financial aide for a reason. I CANT AFFORD SCHOOL.

5.When I went to resolve this issue I thought maybe it would take an hour but to make a very long and stressful story short I was 5 hours late for work and ended up having to take an improved spelling class to get my financial aide back.

there is so so so much more I could say but I wont take up all the space.
No one there was willing to go above and beyond to help me. They are all just lazy and like I said do not care about their students! GOOD LUCK TO WHOEVER ATTENDS THIS COLLEGE!
