Alumni Retraining Program is a sham!
I tried to get into the retraining program after I graduated and they kept giving me the runaround and excuses, like they were in the middle of graduation and that's probably why no one had called me back and I even went to the campus and Cynthia at the front desk sent an email to Anna, which she forwarded to me and no one ever got back to me. I gave up and decided to learn on my own thru tutorials. Thanks a lot Westwood College!
Great, hands-on school
The school provided me with hands-on training that helped me land a job in my field of study. Instructors come from the real world and know what students need to learn to become successful. Everyone was open and honest with me about how much my education cost and how I would be able to pay for it. Westwood is not for people who want to go to community college or a traditional university, it's for people who want to get jobs right away.
