The problem with USCI, is not that you aren't legitimate. It is that you are dishonest in your advertising. People come to you and pay you for the guidance you promise and then you shut them down. The success promise program exists but the minute someone makes a mistake and forgets or misses an assignment you shut them down. I missed an assignment in the GE200 course that is required for eligibility for a refund and you kicked me out of the course via email. I know most people take that course in an effort to have a refund be an option but I was taking that course for educational purposes. I begged and pleaded with anyone who would listen to be let back in the course. I also offered to sign a waiver saying that I wouldn't come back for a refund if I didn't get a job and you still denied me re- entry. USCI DENIED ME MY RIGHT AS A PAYING CUSTOMER TO GET MY FULL EDUCATION THAT I PAID FOR AND AM STILL PAYING FOR. I DON'T WANT MY MONEY BACK. I WANT MY EDUCATION I WAS PROMISED.
I WAS GOING TO TAKE THE ASSOCIATES COURSE FOR MEDICAL CODING AND BILLING AS WELL AND AFTER THIS I WON'T. (ITS NOT A BIG DEAL TO THEM. THERE ARE ENOUGH SUCKERS OUT THERE THAT WILL TAKE THE BAIT. I JUST FEEL BETTER KNOWING THAT I WON'T GIVE THEM ANYMORE OF MY BUSINESS)
The saddest thing about this whole situation is that in order to be taken seriously by the USCI administration, I have to resort to hitting all the scam report sites and also report you to the BBB of Colorado.
I have looked up all the scam complaint sights about USCI AND WESTON DISTANCE LEARNING AND NOTICED THAT THERE IS SOMEONE FROM USCI DEFENDING YOU GUYS ON EVERY WEBSITE THAT IS BASHING YOU IN SOME WAY. NOT TO MENTION YOU GUYS KEENLY INSERT A LITTLE TIDBIT OF HOW AWESOME YOU ARE AND SNEAK IN A LINK TO FOLLOW. YOUR DEFENSE IS ALSO AN ADVERTISEMENT......SHOCKER.
"We are fully accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the
Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). The DETC Accrediting Commission defines, maintains, and promotes educational excellence in distance education
institutions. " I URGE READERS TO LOOK UP HOW "RECOGNIZED" THE DETC IS AMONGST INSTITUTIONS.
"All of our courses are distance learning, meaning they’re
flexible and allow you to study and progress at your own pace. The materials we provide are easy to understand and customized for our students." TRUE. BUT ALL TESTS ARE OPEN BOOK AND IF YOU AREN'T MOTIVATED TO TRULY TEACH YOURSELF THEN YOU EARN NOTHING. YOU WILL HAVE TO BE CERTIFIED BY A REAL CODING ORGANIZATION (AAPC, AHIMA) BEFORE PEOPLE WILL EVEN CONSIDER HIRING YOU SO IF YOU DO TAKE THE COURSE, TREAT IT AS IF IT WEREN'T OPEN BOOK BECAUSE YOU DON'T GET THAT LUXURY WHERE IT REALLY MATTERS. USCI WANTS YOU TO MAKE GOOD GRADES BECAUSE THAT MAKES THEM LOOK BETTER. THEY DON'T CARE IF YOU GET CERTIFIED.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT THESE SCAM WEBSITES, THERE IS SOMETHING YOU DON'T TRUST ABOUT THE ADVERTISEMENT OR YOU ALREADY GOT SCREWED OVER AND ARE LOOKING TO VENT LIKE ME. TO DETERMINE WHERE TO GO, I RECOMMEND GOING WITH AAPC OR AHIMA. IF YOU HAVE DOUBTS GO WITH YOUR GUT. I AM JUST ONE OF THE MANY PEOPLE IRRITATED WITH USCI. IF YOU THINK THEY ARE A BETTER FIT FOR YOU THEN BY ALL MEANS SIGN UP! I STRONGLY SUGGEST TALKING TO ONE OF THE 2 CODING ORGANIZATIONS LISTED ABOVE, AAPC OR AHIMA BEFORE YOU DO THOUGH. I WISH I DID.
I AM NOT SAYING THAT YOU WONT LEARN SOMETHING FROM USCI, YOU JUST WON'T LEARN WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.
