Brainbench is not a certified school they only offer quicky certificates to show your employer that you know how to use a program. Brainbench has no certification with the feds or any state. Since they are not certified, then how can they offer this as prior learning or credits for class? Legally they can't.
They also told me that they would have to add a science class, history class, and a social science class to my schedule since I did not have these credits, but they waited till I was almost through before doing that. I went ahead like a fool and signed the promissary note for the extra 3,500.00 dollars since they can't get anymore financial aid for me.
As far as anybody sticking up for these guys by saying that they are accredited by the Southern Accrediting association. That means nothing since unless they are accredited by the northeastern accreding assoiation, their credits won't transfer anywhere but to another school like them. And for whoever posted here saying that your southern universities are accredited by this southern accredidation agency, they are not, they are accredited through the traditional northeastern association which accredits all community, junior and four year colleges and universities.
I have recently talked with professor's with universities from around the country by email and phone and they have said they wouldn't touch these schools with a ten foot pole.
They also quit responding to emails at the school once you call them on this crap. I have yet to get answer from my advisor on an issue with a teacher who gave me a failing grade for a project that was turned in on time.
