I am a graduate of the Medical Billing course and when anyone asks how I liked my school I tell them....."Total waste of my time and money” The school is a complete Joke. My biggest problem with the school is the false hope they sale to the new students. When I first enrolled they told me that I would have “Job Placement” after finishing the program and after just being laid off my previous job that was music to my ears. I have finished my program and am now jobless again but now with a 9 thousand dollar school loan debt. When it came time for my job internship they didn’t even have anywhere for me to go. Literally the last day of class they found me a job site and emphasized that I am a free worker so my job site took advantage of that completely. I spent 160 hours working for free doing more work at my job site then most of the people on payroll and they let me know at the end of my 160 hours, they had no intention from the beginning of hiring me even though I was the best intern they had ever had their, because they had told our school they had absolutely now room for any new employees. Susan is the career services coordinator of the Medical Billing students and I am not the only one that can say this she is absolute terrible at placement!!! I wish everyone the best and truly hope they find them selves a credible school but as far as I world recommend this school in 2011…..look somewhere else sorry ladies and gentlemen this school SUCKS!!!!!!

I am student in this college now, LVN-WE. Please DO NOT put yourself here. all the educator here are lazy and rude, they don't know much about nursing, I've experience clinical in sub-acute at Knott Ave Care center, My Instructor Mrs. M was rude and not professional, she always look for student mistakes and yelled at you in front of nurses and patients until the patient told us "your teacher is a terrible person." And she always favorite some students because they talk same language.
The Principal of LVN program is rude too, she always talk nice in front of class by saying come to me if you have problem, but when she has some student complaint about something, she always refuse and always say I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR YOUR PROBLEM!! What kind of educator is that? We are here for study and learn about nursing, but they just want your money and will make you failed, if they see your grade not satisfied them.
Please..please.. please consider this school once again, I paid $700 a month for 18 months and with student loan for $20,000. I wish I can quit from here and get a better school, who have good educator and facility. Thank you for your time to read this.

I am exploring a career in the health-care field. I did go the Anaheim campus and took their test then spoke with their financial aid staff. However, after reading the reviews from former and current students of ACC, I am now convinced that this school is terrible and I will heed to the warning and will not pursue an education at ACC. Thanks for the reviews.

We have started a blog to collect stories about ACC and other for-profit programs in Southern California that have not delivered anything clost to what was promised when they signed up - leaving the alumni with only debt and no job prospects. Our hope is to inform more people about this problem.

If you have a story to tell - post it at friendofthestudent.wordpress.com under the alumni page.

I graduated from American Career College in September of 2009. I have not been able to find a job as a Medical Assistant. The school had not trained me in any medical software. This causes a big problem trying to find a job.
When I signed up, I was told they would help us find a job. They printed out my resume for me. That was the extent of their help. They called me after my internship in September, to ask if I found a job. I stated I had not. They informed me they would start helping me look. I did not hear from them again until December of 2009., Again they asked me if I had found a job. I told them I have not. They assured me they would help me look. I have not heard from them since. It is now March.
While in school, we changed instructors 4 times. Which made it hard to learn the new instructors teaching methods, along with the materials. I didn't feel I was learning very much. Some days, no instructor would show up. and we would be in the classroom waiting. We would go to the front desk, they never knew what was going on.
My tuition was 12,500. They actually charged me more than that. I just happened to notice. I was making $90.00 Payments. I noticed none of that money was being applied. I had finally had it squared away, after much complaining. My loans start this month. I am trying to defer them a year, because I have no way of paying them.
I have not received any support in finding a job. Finding one fresh out of school is hard enough. Now with time lapsing farther and farther, from when I graduated, I fear nobody will every hire me.
I have found since graduating, other schools offer the computer software classes that go with medical assisting. I feel I was cheated in this area. Along with having an instructor who was there with us the entire course.

They are now at 900 S. Harbor Blvd- with their own parking lot, easy to find. The phone number on this site is a fax number.

I am a student of the LVN program and am so frustrated by this school already! The school is only worried about their own reputation and the ability to recruit more students, not education! If you learn from your mistakes you WILL NOT learn here. After taking a test you will not be able to see your test questions again for fear of future students cheating and in turn a lower percentage of first time pass rate on the state licensing board (this % is used for advertisement).
My recommendation: take your $31,500 elsewhere. I wish I could!!!

I am a student at career academy of beauty and i highly recommend this school for not only future cosmetologist, but also for great salon services for only a fraction of the price. You get the same great service and outcome yet its more affordable. Anyone who comes in will enjoy and appreciate their time here and will come back. I give it 5 stars!
