Beta Tech is a total scam! I decided to further my education in Medical Assisting. I chose Beta Tech because the Admission Counselor told me many good things about the program. At the time, I thought was good things.

After I signed for the student loans and started the program I found out they were all lies. By this time, I could not back out of the loans.

Financial Aid told me that I qualify for a pell grant. About two months later, the contacted me and stated they made a keying error and that I did not get the pell grant and I needed to get another loan. They also told me if I were to drop out I will still have to pay the loan back in full.

Beta Tech assured us that they program was better then any other school in the area and that employers pick their students over the others. Come to find out employers don't even acknowleged the certification.

Also, other schools won't even accept the so-call credits. I was promise that I will be able to transfer with these credits. I was also promise that they were accredited, which they are not! I was promise job placement, which till this day (Since Sept07) I have not worked a day as a Medical Assistant.

The teachers there was horrible. Tyhe didn't care about the students or the program.

I am now up to about $13,000.00 in student loans and a certification that is useless. I searching now to see if I can take legal action against this school.

Centura College - Accred

AUTHOR: Director of Education - (United States of America)

I am truly sorry that you are having trouble finding an MA  job. Please call us and make an appointment with our Career Services Representative to help you find job placement. Centura College would not be able to recieve federal funding for our student's if we were not fully accredited. Our accrediting agency is ACCSC. Many other colleges in South Carolina are accredited by the same accrediting body. It is up to the particular school to decide to accept or deny credit hours. The course description from one college needs to exactly match the other college's course description for a credit to be transferrable. Also, most schools only accept transfers from schools that are accredited by the same accrediting body.

Centura College is a great college and I hate that you are having trouble! Please call us to recieve our free services and help!!
