The software associated with some of the course is not good, like Test out. Although Peirce does offer online chat with some departments, it would be better if they offered online chat for student financial services. It takes a little bit of time for financial aid to be applied to your account making it difficult for students to know what their exact balance is for any given semester. The staff seems very friendly and helpful, admissions was fairly smooth. And paying hundreds of dollars for books and then only getting 3% of the sell back price is TERRIBLE!
Peirce College is great overall with one issue for me. Peirce staff doesn't delegate when you no longer have an advisor ahead of time and they need to make advisors more available to students when needed via email. Outside of those things the school is great and I have learned and overcame so much attending this college due to the flexibility of FIT!
I am an Information Technology major and it is one of Peirce's inclusive majors. We have our own student association and we have bi-monthly meetings. The leaders of the IT Student Association are degree professionals and certified in most of the in-demand career fields of Information Technology. Under their leadership, I am confident that I will stay on top of my industry's current trends.
