They lie a lot. They lie about the accreditation to get you in. They lie about being able to wacth your screen and have proof of you somehow cheating. They don't communicate with each other and change minds way too many times. They dont let us know anything till the last minute. They come up with excuses and say all schools is this bad when it really isnt. Food is from vending machines. Computer lab and library are tiny. All this and they expect you to pay more than the cost of a public university. The dean expects students to not work at all and when you do she judges you. Half the teachers basically hands you the grade if half the students are failing. All to just look good. So if you dont want to learn anything and want an easy pass, make sure half the class fails for this to work. You can also cheat as ling as you persistently lie.
The staff at Carrington College are all very sweet and helpful. They give you the impression they want you to succeed in life and become someone beneficial to society. I feel like the environment is about being your "friend" more so then being the educator. It kind of feels like elementary school at times, and make me wonder if the instructors are what they say they are there to do and if they are actually truly wanting for success.
It’s been an awesome experience. I love the class and curriculum. The staff and Teachers are very welcoming. The class sizes aren’t too big. Lots of support as well. Id recommend to my peers. It was a great decision for me.

I have had a wonderful experience with Carrington College. Admissions has been very flexible with my schedule and needs, and has helped me to pursue my passion. The team at Carrington has walked me through each step, and thoroughly answered all my questions and concerns. I will be attending the Vet Assisting program in July, and I look forward to attending!
Carrington was the most understanding and willing to explain everything to me when I was looking at colleges. They provide excellent education in just a few months so you can jumpstart your career. Within the few months you are in class you get hands on experience, for the vet assistance class we could bring animals in and actually practice basic non-invasive procedures. You gain confidence extremely fast and you get the education and skills needed in your career of choice. I 100% recommend this college for those who are looking to be challenged and are willing to learn right from the start to get their career on track.
I like the way they treat you and also the have very good tutors and everyone is nice to you. It is fun in lab days because you get to work in modalities with your classmates and students from other programs.
The first couple of days felt overwhelming but we had staff coming and explain how to manage your time, and ask questions. Plus getting to know your class mates to help and exchange info to help if needed. I did not need to transfer credits. I have not experience needing to do that yet.
Online courses were a little different but nothing anyone can not adjust to. Learning to address topics in a professional manner. Talking with staff and students if help was needed. Understanding where work will be turned in, look for grades, and know what we will be learning or reading for classwork it was all explain and walked through. Just preparing us for what possibly be out in the work field and at least we will be knowledgeable.
They have a process they go through to get you ready from begin to end. Assist you as much as possible and make sure we are ready for our externship and interview/resume ready as well. Not there yet got a few more terms but before I blink I will be there.
Our class is no more than 20 students and the instructor is knowledgeable of what we need to learn. She has experience in our field of study. What is great we she the passion she has for our field of study, making learning fun and exciting to be ahead. Also to relate to why we picked out field.
the student career is always finding fun ways to recruit, always trying to get the students out in their fields of study. students always find a way to get together and help on another. Student council is very helpful to students needs. The career center/ service is awesome they meet with students making sure there meeting deadlines or giving information needed. Always assisting as we get close to transition out.
Physical therapy technician is absolutely want I want and at this school I am learning the importance of a person quality of life and care for them. I love that we have lab, lecture, lab, lecture meaning we are taught what we will be doing and next day we are talking about why we learned the day before. the terms are different so you look forward to what will be coming up. it is exciting to know your next challenge. Our externships are according to what we are learning and from past students they are succeeding.
my experience so far is I like I start my Monday with hands on (lab) and next day lecture. Knowing what we are doing and then talking among each other of what we are learning. I feel my school is unique and diverse we all there to accomplish our own personal goal but we are very supportive in helping other achieve. I would choose this school again because from day one the staff all encourage you to keep going to achieve your goal and give the help needed. They are friendly and professional.
My experience with courses and professors at my school have been real good so far never been offered so much help and encouragement than my current college I go to lab twice A week. I get a lot of one-on-one experience with animals I can apply to my career course that I'm currently taking is a pretty in-depth detailed extremely educational course in veterinarian assistant and the other class I attend is my theory class we go over a lot of discussions PowerPoints, group exercises, and even go on educational field trips that will give use experience with animals we cannot bring to school. I've never been so motivated to complete school than I am now. I use to hate school now I love it. And my class is small enough to be more than helpful to each and every one of my class mates and big enough to be able to have groupe events. I don't even think I will ever regret applying to CARRINGTON COLLEGE. THEY ARE CHANGEING MY LIFE.
Well with my program I get to go on a externship for the last six weeks of class. By going to an pre approved or by choice animal care center, pet clinic, veterinarian hospital, etc. And gaining more hands on experience and still being graded on the whole externship. Most of the externship at my school end as a huge job/employment opportunity for us. The hire rate for externs is like 68%. The quality of our career center/Servicece on campus are real good. It's called the Student Success Center and the teachers, counsels, and mentors are the most helpful and encouraging people I've ever met in any school I've visited they are willing to go out of there way just to help with what ever your needs are.
My experience with Carrington College so far is been one of the best in my life. I never like school growing up. But Carrington College has change my perspective on school I wake up every morning and the only thing I can think about is how much I'm enjoying School. My instructor in the veterinarian assistant class is by far my favorite teacher I've ever had she is helpful she not only gives her time at school to help me but her own personal time if I'm having a problem in a certain subject or a theory or discussion topic. Administration staff are very engaging with the student body they are so encouraging. Mentioning every single student by name every day if they see them in the hallway they ask how are you doing and I actually enjoy what I'm going to school for it's a passionate they're making me ready to dedicate my life to and it's all because my love for animals push me towards Carrington College's direction. Now they are a big reason why I'm gonna be able to better my life. When I complete the classes that I'm in right now I plan on moving to a different city or state just so I could attend the associates degree in veterinarian technician class just so I can stay with the school that's how much they've encourage me and inspired me to succeed and do good in school. The Student Success Center at Carrington College is a big helpful tool in ensuring the success in academics and life as well as the well-being of the students they offer tutoring, counseling, help with finding apartments, help getting a job, & even help with our personal problems and issues if they can. My life has changed for the better. Carrington College is the main reason why I feel confident, encouraged, happy, and comfortable that I'll be a success in life instead of ending back in a legal problem. Or a failure like I felt I was. Now it's a complete 360. And I have a 3.15 GPA.
It's simply amazing, and the classes are small.

My overall experience at Carrignton College so far is simply, amazing! Whatever i need help with,the intructors, the student resource manager, and the staff are there for me. It doesn't matter what problem you may have, either if it's little or big, they help you solve it. I wouldn't want to go to another school after attending this one and this is barely my 2nd week. I've never thought about joining student council and now that i'm in it, i love it. This school not only reaches out and helps their students but the community as well.
I'm not a student there yet, but when i went to tour the campus, everyone made my family and I feel welcome. All the available help they have on campus is amazing and astonishing, they don't just worry about your education but also your needs and i think its important for the school staff and students have that kind of relationship where the students feel comfortable seeking for help to the staff not just on school related topics but on anything else they might be struggling with and might need guidance in. Not only do I trust their education system but i also trust them as people not just as educators.
I love it! The people are nice and the school makes you feel like one big family. I wouldn't change my school.
