I enrolled in Northwest College's program after being told that they teach to the highest industry standards. Unfortunately, this school is very mismanaged and hires instructors who are both incompetent and combative. LAZY would be the most appropriate word to describe the shiftless "2 ton Lulu's" that pretend to teach cosmetology at this establishment. The instructors have no real industry experience and what's worse is that they seem to be completely oblivious to this fact. Aesthetics students are watching youtube videos to learn how to apply make-up. The curriculum appears to be focused on selling the students products via coerced infomercials masquerading as instructional demonstrations. It would appear that if an applicant for cosmetology instructor has less than an obese rating on the BMI (body mass index), then they are disqualified from being hired. What is worse is that the instructor's personality and people skills are even less attractive than their exterior. School administration is focused ONLY on enrollment (translate: sales) and has no desire to fix the problems. Even though they claim to be a PIVOT POINT school, they do not teach the PIVOT POINT METHOD and are not listed with (((REDACTED))) My advice is to save your money and go elsewhere. YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE AN EDUCATION AT THIS SCHOOL! The instructors are bullies. Caveat Emptor.

We Are Sorry to Hear About Your NWC Experience

AUTHOR: Success Education Colleges - (USA)

Dear Lauren,

We are dismayed to hear about your experience with North-West College (NWC)! Our Vocational Nurse program has helped thousands of students enter a fulfilling career in the health care field. And all of our Team Members, from the staff in admissions and financial aid to our instructors in our classrooms, really do have our students' best interests at heart. In fact, every day, they work hard to ensure our students have the support they need, walking alongside them through each step of their program.

As part of the admissions process, we do require students to undergo an entrance evaluation. Once they pass this examination, we refer them to our financial aid department, where every student meets with a financial aid representative. During this meeting, students receive an estimate of the financial aid they are eligible to receive, along with an estimate of the tuition and fees they will owe as they complete the program. Based on these estimates, students are also required to make a down payment toward their tuition and fees prior to entering their program.

Next, every Vocational Nursing student is enrolled in a prerequisite course, called Seminars for Success. This five-week class helps prepare students for the coursework ahead and gives them every opportunity to succeed in their studies at NWC. Prior to beginning the course, each student must sign our Vocational Nursing Guidelines, which explain that Seminars for Success is a competitive course, with the only the top 30 students eligible to advance into the nursing program. Should students fail to place in the top 30 of their class, they are more than welcome to re-take Seminars for Success to try to score higher in the course.

We are so sorry to hear about the communication challenges you encountered when trying to reach out to North-West College. We are not sure how these repeated calls could have fallen through because every one of our Team Members is committed to returning students' calls in a timely manner. However, we understand how frustrating this situation must have been for you and we want to offer any assistance we can. Please reach out to our Corporate Director of Academic Operations, Brooke Allen, at (626) 251-1078 so that we can review your situation and better address your concerns.
