I am complaining about the harassing collection calls and threat letters in the mail. heald college has me under a written deferment stating that I do not have to pay while I am in school. I have received emails, collection calls, and threat letters every week for two and a half years, and I am getting tired of all of it. If the emails do not stop, I will write a letter to cooperate. If the collection calls do not stop, I will force my opinion. If the threat letters do not stop, I will sue you. You can try to counter sue, but own nothing, so try me!. Stop sending me threat letters, because you would...

I'm currently enrolled at Heald College, and I hate it. They promised a "hands on" experience, which I am not getting. They only care about the money, They don't care about there students. The teachers are rude and are always late to class. Very unprofessional as the student body goes its very diverse . I feel like my adviser coned me. Now I have this huge debt, and I'm only 18. They're the most unprofessional college. They don't even make you take the higher English and Math classes, they focus on only your major, and that whole "help getting a job after graduation" is...

I recently applied for a Criminal Justice instructor position at Healds San Jose location. I have worked in law enforcement for 30 years, and hold a Community College Life Time Teaching Credential. The interview was going fine, until 10 minutes into the interview, when an Administrator by the name of "Nelly" enters the room. She doesn't introduce herself, simply looks at my Resume, then states, "your not qualified, you don't have a BA degree". I explained to her that The Creditial meets all of their MQ's, plus they have other locations that employ instructors with said creditials....

I had Arlandis McClain as an advisor when I enrolled at Heald. I kept getting phone calls from the same phone number over and over. Frustrated, I finally answered and asked who it was that keeps calling me. He told me he was calling from Heald college. I said I wasn't that interested I was just on the internet checking out possibilites. He then asked me if I was looking for a job. I told him I was half heartedly looking for a job. He told me Heald had opportunities for students to work at Heald. I thought that would be a great opportunity. I could get an education and work at the same time....

I recently was interested in the Heald college in Modesto. My sister and my boy friend were as well. I made a phone call to them informing them that we were interested in the school and would like to make an appointment to check out the school and ask a couple questions. So we made an appointment with an advisor named arlandis. He sounded very nice and respectful over the phone and was glad we were interested in the school. So we made it fifteen minuets early to our appointment and saw arlandis. He explained some things about the school, why its a good school, and why we should attend it. We then...

Heald College - California, Salinas - Full time/Part time status

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 5 votes
Recently, I've had a storm of issues with the Salinas Heald and their attention to details regarding Full-time/Part-time status.
So initially I got let go from temp work and decided to take up a new line of work: Medical Assisting. Since my income at my temp job was considerable, I didn't qualify for grants and had to go with loans. I was told by the financial aid person (who doesn't work there anymore) that I would be going part-time the first quarter, then full-time the rest of the way. Ok, sounds good so far. 2nd Quarter comes up, I was given full-time classes and assumed...

Another thing that I forgot to add in the previous complaint "unprofessional IT instructor", if Heald College has the Financial Resources to establish new programs such as Construction Management, Pharmacy Technician and so on, why cannot they institute just one class covering Macintosh Computers? They don't have to invest in a dozen iMac Computers, but rather the Mac mini's.

Even though Mac's only account for 10% of the market, they are still very widely used in University Settings, Professionals, and other areas as well. Myself and other IT Students have asked that...

During my attendance in 2009 at Heald College. For the Final for one of my classes, we were required to give an Oral Presentation on any topic that is geared towards our major, for mines it was on "Mac OS X Snow Leopard".

When I had completed my oral presentation and was leaving the classroom, one of the IT Instructors I had the previous quarter raised his arm and pointed his finger at me and began to ridicule at me in a very loud unprofessional manner on the Visual Aid ( iMac Box ) I had brought in. He was doing this right in the middle of the hallway in front of other students...

In our labs this past week we using expired 0.9% Sodium Chloride injections. We were not only injecting our fellow class mates but also outside volunteers. The expiration date was Dec 2006... This upsets me because now I wonder what if any harm it can do to you and also why was this inventory not disposed off on expiration. We have been taught in this very class that all medications have got to be destroyed. Why are there still bottles of sodium chloride still in the inventory 4 years after expiration date? The teacher was informed of the expiration date; she immediately removed everyone from the...

Heald College - California - Complaint!

Complaint Rating:  83 % with 6 votes
As of 2009, Heald College was purchased by Corinthian Colleges Inc, and they are now a for-profit institution.

The main objective with a for-profit college is to make money $$$$$ and alot of it! And all of that money is being drawn out from us, the students. Rather than using that money in improving on the quality of an education that a student recieves, in the for-profits perspective, they would rather use that money in funding the pockets of their shareholders!

The tution they charge at this school is very expensive as well!
