Current graduate of Heald College with an AAS and AA in Business Administration: When I was first enrolled in this program I was informed that my education total of cost of the 18th month program was 17,000 which I was ignorant and agreed too with the illusion that I could accomplish and succeed with my education. Once enrolled at Heald not only did I come across bias teachers who constantly discriminated against their students either because the were African American or Hispanic. about 75 % of the teachers did not care to teach their students the materials need to succeed in thier program. One was told if the material was not understood to google the question and read the results and if one still didn't understand the work then we deserved to fail.
Another teacher spent her time talking about her trips all around Europe and the love to her husband. Another teacher spent her time showing videos, listening to music, everything but actually taking the time to teach. [continued below]....
..... "Help" assist with students concerns and education. When the concerns where brought to the attention of the Corporate office not only did they ignore the issue, but ignored the fact that they had complaints and nothing was being done about the teachers/student conflicts.
But it does not stop there not only were teachers not helpful the so called LLRC was a joke nobody could get help there either because they did not know or because they were too busy gossiping.
My education there was a joke I was able to survived after 24 month of attempted education because I had already taken a course at an Adult school. My AAS was suppose to be for 17, 000 thousand dollars at the end of the quarter that AAS was 28, 963. and cents. Once I completed the program Heald encourages one to continue ones education what they don't tell you is that you don't need an AA to move into a BA. I once again believed the Financial Aid team that it was best to continue with my AA during these 6 month I encounter not only once again with bias teachers, but with a great loss in financial aid due to discrepancies and mal practices that their financial aid department conducted.
They made numerous mistakes in my Financial Aid that now the two programs has cost me approximately 40,000 thousand dollars. When this was questioned to the President of the school Caroline Pierce agreed to fix and over right their mistakes, however, these mistakes were not fixed I was charged for them and told that if I did not pay the money in question I was not going to walk for graduation.
Well let me tell you not only were the fines paid but because of the noise made with corporate office Caroline Pierce stopped me from graduating, my fellow peers did not know that I was not going to walk although I was fed up with the crap and constant discrimination I was being put through it was my right and i was robbed off it.
Heald College is not where one can go and get the correct education one needs. Please people dont fall for the commercial"Heald cares" Heald does not care.
Heald is nothing but a predatory school with the amount the school charged me for the so call education I could have gained a "Bachelor degree"
I know I am not the only student out there as they are many more that feel the same way nonetheless I seem to be the only one with the courage to do and say something about it.
I was robed of a proper education I was robbed of my Financial Aid.
FYI for 40,000 thousand dollars one could get an education at Stanford University.
