| I took a Medical Assisting Course at Hesser College. The teachers were uneducated and uninformative. One teacher actually advised the students in an ethics class to "fake it, until they make it." The work was grade school handouts and color in diagrams. You learn nothing and test are based on your ability to memorize words. I completed all the "mods" and passed with a 4.0gpa as I am sure everyone else did. The lab work was practiced in unsanitary and uncomfortable conditions. After completion of these so called mods. I was supposed to be placed in a facility to obtain "practice hours" with a reputable practice. That never happened. The career placement team are never available and offer no help at all. I did not obtain my certification and Hesser College did not hold up their end of the deal. Tution is outrageously high and it was a massive waste of time. In the end I am totally screwed out of money with nothing to show. If I could sue for my tuition money to be returned, I would take every legal action I could possible take. This "college" needs to be put of of business. They pray on the poor, desperate and uneducated. |

| Some truth about HESSER.|
1)Anyone can get in and I mean anyone! There is no SAT it's a placement test that you can take over and over again untill your able to pass it.
2)The Faculty has some of the worse teachers out there! I was in the CJ program and after a year of classes I started to notice how I didn't fit in..(Not because Im an outcast or I feel Im better than most) I just notice that 90% were poverty level people along with a large majority of high school drop outs.
3)They will scam you and I mean scam you for hundreds of thousands of dollars!(Im a vet that uses the Post 9-11 GI Bill and I received financial aid which was the pell grant. It took almost 6 months to pay to me now understand my tuition is 100% paid!Long story short they still haven't paid and are scammers and a always find a reason not to pay I.E Lost check, vacation someone is out of the office)
4)The majority of the students have to be special education of some type.In my 390 level Psych class a girl couldn't read! This is no lie she literally could no read!
5)The facilities are nothing but crap. I would love to see the books on this school and where it's money goes.Literally computers from the late 90's one printer per 30 computers! Now the best part, There literally are bums who sleep there (students who Im guessing don't have a place to live and no not housing this was at the Portsmouth Campus)6)The worse thing that has ever happened to me was when I walked into the computer lab to print up a paper..Well it smelt like human "shit" literally like someone had shit themselves and just walked around with it in there pants! Well someone did! The guy stayed through all his classes and NO ONE ASKED HIM TO LEAVE! Please avoid this school at all cost! It's a total scam and they will take anything they can from you!

| So here is the truth about Hesser Yes they are a for profit college(Been than ask yourself which one isn't?) UNH recieve less than 6% funding from the stat and Plymouth(Which Im a graduate of) gets even less, Same with SNHU at 2% so that income comes from students federal funding etc.. I have attended Hesser College for the past 2 years and must say I was 100% Skeptical that I would have stayed more than a few months but 90% of the time the faculty is great and knowledgeable in there field. Where as many major university has Dr. Who just preach the same redirect B.S. One of there biggest flaws.They let anyone and I mean anyone in! Yet if you give it time you will watch as those people dwindle and don't come back after the summer months move on. I have been attending the school as stated for 2 years and I have almost 95% of the same people that I started with in my classes (who can say that for there so called non-profit colleges) My advice If your an adult (18-21 isn't an adult but a late teen thinking they are adults) Check them out and give it a shot as any college intro classes are full of idiots who complain but once you move away from that you can see Hesser is a Diamond in the rough.(P.S I attend the Portsmouth Campus) |
