Truly awful!! Don't waste your money!!
x-ray tech - October 27, 2013
RUN from them! A total rip-off. Their X-ray Tech program is limited scope and will not prepare anyone in the real world. The teachers do the best they can with the material they have, however their approach is often sophomoric at best. I wish I had never given them a dime. A total waste of thousands of dollars! I was getting straight A's when I left after completing about 4 months of the program. It was only then that I learned I would not be able to find a job with the "degree". Friends who completed the program did NOT find a job. Most physician offices are using digital equipment. If anyone would be willing to pursue some sort of class action suit against them I would so gladly join!!!

Find another school!!!!!
Business Management - October 2, 2013
I have been attending Anthem online for the past year. little did I know they do not release any funds left over after they take what is owed, instead you must fill out a loan increase form, yes this means you must barrow more money while they keep the left over positive balance(they are a for-profit school)I requested a loan increase in march of 2013 it is now October and every time i have called the financial aid department to figure out what is going on i keep getting the run around. this school will make you crazy!

Waste of time!!! Don't go here!!!
criminal justice - July 30, 2013
Anthem College is the most dumb pathetic waste of time school. Excuse my language in this post but they have pissed me off the last time! They've withdrawn me today because I supposedly didn't meet their academic standards. What the heck??? I attended their classes, the "instructors" were giving me good reports on my work and they made me retake my course. I felt like I was taking 1 class. So NOW I'm withdrawn... when I started school back in May on the 27th. I was feeling good... doing good until on some of the work they said that they didn't want to accept it but yet once again give me good reports on it! I also had some trouble with internet issues when I very first started so I understood why they made me retake the course. I retaken my course and I was doing really good as well as what I saw on my graded paper and what the instructor has said to me. I asked for help plenty of times before that they didn't seem to even bother as well. In their stupid lectures they pretty much talk about the same thing and they don't seem to want to help anyone at all. The instructors Do NOT know what their doing at all. It doesn't make sense to tell a student and give the student good grades on their paper work but yet they want to "fail" someone??? Now I'm withdrawn from their crappy school and they said that I can retake the course again. But this time I'm not going to... I regret taking my course. Another reason why they're a waste of time and money is for example before I was withdrawn I was doing online school for the Paralegal studies. Their assignments seemed to have nothing to do with what I was attending their stupid school for they also told me that I have to complete other forms for financial aid. I went to my FASFA and it says it's completed successfully. Don't go here PLEASE DO NOT!!!

This school is a scam
Business Management - June 13, 2013
This school is a scam. Credits earned here are worthless..good luck transferring! Also, they don't have real college instructors like I had my first time in a state school. The have a bunch of UOP grads who just facilitate. They have no idea what they are talking about. My son's high school is more like a college class than Anthem. In most of my classes most of my classmates just copy stuff from google. This school is a joke and a waste of your time and money.

Medical Billing and Coding - March 6, 2013
I attended anthem a year ago. I had to drop classes due to picking up custody of my lil sister. When I returned I was asked to contact a number to recieve some more money to cover the last 3 classes that I needed. I had already did a day in a class and was loaded with work that I had already completed. So I couldn't get the money and now have to wait 6 months...all that school is really concerned about is money..the director of financial aid made me seem like there was no hope for my life..i couldnt sit out and refresh what i needed to know or nothing......I will not be going back will be looking for another school

Worst money ever spent
x-ray tech - February 18, 2013
they are a total gyp. they are so nice to lure you in,but once your in they harass you about payments. when externship comes around they take long in placing you so you have to sit (pay) for another class. [name omitted] is terrible and she makes this place a sad facility,her mood is always down and she shows it. she doesnt treat the students with respect. once they have your money,your garbage. the campus pres, only cares about how hot the receptionists are. this is a terrrible place. xray instructor does not care about you. they make you pay for his self ran business (online)during your course,just so he can make money. Tis palce is the worst money ever spent.

Bad. Just Bad.
Medical Billing and Coding - September 26, 2012
I didn't actually go to this school, but I did take a tour and talk to a representative about it. I will protect names and all that but it was an awful experience. I felt very pressured and calling 5 plus times a day and harrassing will not make one want to go to the school any faster. At least not with me anyway. Thumbs down.

Instructors are sooo unprofessional
Medical Billing and Coding - June 28, 2012
We have a husband and wife duo thst seams to think they run the department. The husband at the memphis campus seams to think when his can't control a student she says looked at her funny and with disrespect because she twisted her head as she was talking and also looked at the time on her cell phone like she was saying b***** will you please hurry the F*** up. "WHAT!" I've never witnessed so much childishness. So she runs out of the class room crying, because she feels disrespected,at that point she goes to her husband he then goes in her class room chastising the whole class about being disrespectful to his wife and how they allow everybody to get away with things they shouldn't. Holding her class up for over an hour. Counting it up, that was 2 hours wasted on foolishness. Is this what we are paying for we really deserve a better education from Anthem. I really wish someone would do something about this. I'm ready to throw in the towel. If she can,t stand the heat she needs to get out the kitchen, stop running to her husband interupting his class as well. Too much DRAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
