For anyone interested in this information. Almost every county or city in the country gave some form of Literacy Volunteers that wi help prepare people for a GED for FREE, also most Vocational schools offer GED prep classes. Both of these are options where you can get a GED that a college will recognize and accept

I think people are not realizing that SCI is not a college or a university. It's a career study. The information provided can help you to further your path in your career, which is why it's a study. The information is useful, no lie... but, it's not to be used as a...

YES!!! I saw someone complain their medical billing degree was useless.

That course here is just a course to help you PASS the certification tests with either AAPC or AHIMA. Those are the organizations that you get a coding/billing CERTIFICATION from. AAPC or AHIMA also offer their own courses that are online and take about 4 months to complete, but are about 3 times as expensive ($3,000-$4,000). There are no prerequisites for testing for medical billing or coding and getting your certification needed to work.

Lots of people make that mistake and ALL the trade schools (online and actual campuses), offer a COURSE. NONE of those are necessary to take the test. Anyone can take the test - zero prerequisites. However, in order to pass, you would need to know the materials and this is all this school claims to offer.

I'm taking this course (I already work at a huge hospital in compliance/auditing/ and a tiny bit of coding), but don't know enough to pass my AHIMA or AAPC tests (THOSE are the only two tests that certify you!!) EVERYONE, regardless of school, has to pass one of those. So this class is actually a very cheap option to get there. Schools like Antonelli and Phoenix offer these medical/billing "certifications" also and they can be $10,000 plus - and you STILL have to take the AAPC or AHIMA test (those are ALL that matters). Employers don't care where you learned the info.

You just have to take test and have a cert from AAPC or AHIMA, so you got lucky with this one if you didn't know what was going on!!

I'm seeing so many bad reviews, and I hate people are out of that$, but people have to know that $1,000 is TOO CHEAP for an ACTUAL DEGREE!! Come on people.

Stratford Career Institute - Horrible

This is a terrible company to deal with. They started by sending me a contract for $200.00 more than the price they gave me. I refused to sign it. It took many conversations both by phone and letters to try to resolve this. I eventually returned all of their books and refused to pay anymore money. I had to cancel my credit card to get the payments to stop. My last conversation with them was the beginning of July when I was assured that the nightmare was over yet yesterday August 12, I received a letter from a collection agency on their behalf. Don’t do business with them. It is a huge mistake.

Reason of review
Fair pricing

Stratford Career Institute in Saint Albans Town, Vermont - I worked hard in all my courses that I did and it really has paid off.

I have receive 3 diploma from SCI and I have had no problems maintaining any college entrance to further my studies. I fully paid all of my courses off and I also received my diploma for every course I have taken. I never had any problems with phone calls, emails or paying my account off. I am pleased to say that this place has allowed me to continue my every day job as well as receive additional studies that I so desired. However since this is not a college for a Associate, Bachelor, Masters future studies will be necessary. I wish everyone well with there future studies.

They must send all books immediately if they are honest and not to say we must finish one book and then send us another book

There is a time limit on tefunds and the amount refunded is not the full amount. You have to read the contract and fine print. Once you have signed, you've agreed to the terms.

Most of the complaints I'm reading are from people that clearly didn't read the FAQ section. The school is not accredited nor does it give you the option to legally get a license in any practice. This is mainly a pre course before you go to college to help you out...

I enjoy going through SCI, I am enrolled in the "Small Engine Repair" course and I like it. The school tells you that they are not accredited and if people did their research then they would know this.

When I am done with this course I might end up taking " Start Your Own Business" because I am seriously thinking about starting my own small engine repair shop. SCI is not a scam nor will it ever be.

Like I said, if people did their research then they would know that the school is not accredited. Thanks.
