Do NOT register for courses unless you areQuite BrightNursing
Do NOT register for courses unless you are dead set on taking them! If you drop or switch your schedule beyond the first week of class, all additional course add's are exactly that; the charges are in addition to what you ALREADY OWE. This school is about making money. I would avoid any school that automatically assigns a W for a course you were enrolled in for a week.

Question
The books are outrageous!! You cant afford them,Quite BrightPsychology
The books are outrageous!! You cant afford them, they are such a rip off you don't even need them half the time, and buy back is a complete joke. $150 book (if your lucky) and $19 for a buy back!! I need my financial aide to survive and i loss hundreds of dollars on PCC special edition books which is a complete JOKE.

Question
The teaching staff are (for the most part)Bright
The teaching staff are (for the most part) good, though many whom I've dealt with provide nothing but busywork. The administration send out random emails asking for extra fees and place holds on your account for seemingly no reason. It honestly seems like they find any excuse they can to scam money out of their students. I would honestly recommend going to a different school if you can manage it.
