I entered Medical Transcription late in 2013. The course work was very basic. This concerned me a good deal. There was a lot of small print in the course work, advising you that what they were telling you does not conform to most of the standards that employers would...

I got expelled from my online school and discovered this school so thought it was not such a bad idea. The pricing was okay, but what they do not tell you off hand is that if you want to buy the course materials that costs extra. Like $29.99. So the pricing is...

Responding to the review up top. I called and spoke to a Rep and didn't feel misled.

Yes the fee changes, because of what I read if you just want the education then the cost is one price but to get certified then additional fees are requested. Mentioning the University of Phoenix as an option seems like a plan but from a parent of a child that attended there you will being paying a *** of a lot more from them especially because it is an out of state college.

You will pay out of state fees up to over an additional $20,000 plus. It's convenient because its online but all their credits are transferable.

Be very careful!!!

Run from them. I cancelled after enrolling for just one week and i returned everything they sent me for the first lesson over 7yrs ago.

They then turned around to report it on my credit report that i am owing them over $1000 .

They report it on my credit report every 6month as something new.

They are destiny destroyers and not destiny builders.

Please don't sign up or enroll in any course with US career institute!!!

Customer service is poor, they are only out to swindle people out of their monies.

You will regret doing business with them. Run Now!

Basically you read take open book multiple choice tests. Then when you have a project to complete instructions are vague . The forms in these bookkeeping projects are unfamiliar nothing like what was already covered. Multiple misprints through out course. Buy accounting for dummies you'll get farther

What in the world are you blabbering about?? You're all over the place.

First, let me address the accreditation thing. You "urge" people to look up DETC to see how "recognized DETC is amongst institutions." That doesn't even make sense. DETC IS the accrediting agency, and institutions are recognized BY DETC as meeting certain standards, thus becoming accredited. If your issue with DETC is their legitimacy as an accrediting body, then bring it up with the U.S.

Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (who, by the way, oversee regional accrediting bodies, or for people like you, "real schools"). The DETC maintains the same standards that regional bodies hold, the only difference being the DETC accredits institutions offering distance education.

Second, you weren't denied your right to an education. You failed to fulfill your obligation. When you sign contracts, educational or other, each party is agreeing to a set of terms or expectations.

For example, you pay us money and we'll send your course materials. You complete ALL of your assignments and exams satisfactorily and on time, then we'll give you an appropriate grade to reflect that achievement. If you missed an assignment, like you stated, then you failed to meet an expectation. And in most schools, if you don't make the grade (literally) then you're removed from the roster.

And in some cases you're ineligible for repeat. Oh, and you still have to pay for it. What I don't understand is if materials are sent at the beginning of the course, you should have enough content to get the gist of the information presented. So if this was an elective, what's all the heartburn about?

And I'm really getting a kick out of the number of people who don't do prior research, then blame the school for "blindsiding" them.

Wake up! Your credentials don't stop at certification/diploma.

You have continuing education, licensure, State and National exams...

And this is all spelled out on the US Career Institute website (with hyperlinks) if you'd just read it.

So stop poo-pooing everyone else for your inadequacies
