The way the cohort's are set up makes it a very comfortable experience. We are with the same 30 students from start to finish so we have created an excellent support group for each other. After almost 2 years together we have become more like family and this is a very unique concept for a college experience. The workload fluctuates so you have to be good at managing your time and preparing ahead of time. The restrooms need updated, but the rest of the facilities are nice. We all have two 8 week long internships. The internships allow us to apply all of our knowledge from the classroom to real patients.

Our school is definitely accepting of everyone and students come from all over Orange County, Los Angeles & San Diego. Many of the students have already been working for awhile and they are going back to school for a change of career. Very few are fresh out of high school. We have a diverse ethnic population and everyone becomes very close within their cohorts. Many of the students in my classroom are working part time-full time and a lot of them have families as well.

Career services has reached out to me and offered to help with anything I need. I am not currently in a place where I have utilized their services yet so I can't provide the best feedback.

I feel Stanbridge has provided me with a great education and they really focus in on the information we need to know! I felt prepared entering my second level II fieldwork. I personally feel the anatomy and physiology class should have been longer and gone over more information in detail. The labs are excellent and all of the professors are either Cota's or OTR's so they have a lot of valuable information to share with the students.

They offer a student resource center where students can go if they need any computers/books/printing needs, or just a good place to study!
Plus they offer tutoring free of charge! It's easy to set an appointment to get tutoring and they really do care about your success!
The school itself is situated in the beautiful city in irvine close to many food options!
They offer many volunteer opportunities as well.
They also have a career services center with people who actually help you find a job in school or for graduates!

I am currently just starting classes and everything is well organized without having to run back and forth finding classes! You really only have one class (different instructors for theory and clinical) so it's easier to keep track and everything is concurrent so there is no confusions!

Tuition & Financial Aid:
This is an amazing school in general.
It's a private vocational school that offers programs such as Licensed Vocational Nursing, IT, OTA, PTA and soon to have a Vet Tech program.
The enrollment process was very simple, there usually is no wait list. They just need your basic info/diploma/GED or equivalent.
Financial aid was a breeze too, the financial aid officers pretty much do the work for you...now I'm currently enrolled in their full time LVN program and tuition is about 30-35k. Depending on your family income, the financial aid can vary but they are very informative and helpful with that.
The classes themselves are nice, you each have your own comfortable seat with a computer in each seat. All classrooms use smart boards and instructors are super helpful and kind.
They have a state of the art Sim-lab as well. Classes are at a set schedule and you also get the schedule for the whole year!
Overall, the people and the environment, very clean, good looking school with amazing instructors. Your quarrel with the students vary.

I haven't had much contact with career services yet, but they do send a lot of job postings to students' e-mail accounts as they become available. Job prospects for OTA seem good as of now.

The financial aid officer I worked with was wonderful and super helpful. Other classmates have not been as fortunate. Is the education worth the amount I'm paying? Won't know till I graduate.

Thus far, everything has been a mixed bag. Some instructors are absolutely wonderful and approachable, while others act like they don't care. Credits are easy to transfer, but cannot be transferred out. By far the biggest hassle has been the enormity of the cost of the program, which has required me to take on 2 government loans and one college loan.

Well so far I haven't taken any online courses at Stanbridge College but I have taken online courses at Coastline Community College and it didn't thrill me. It was hard to reach the teacher via email and if you ever miss an assignment that you would normally be very aware of in a conventional class, you lose out and recieve an F. But since there is no face-time with fellow students or the teacher this sort of thing happens alot and the teachers, I believe, don't feel bad about tossing out poor grades since it's hard to feel compassionate with students that you never have to meet in real-time. Hence, it makes for a really non-stimulating "learning" experience.

I think I'll be pretty happy with the career as an OTA if indeed it all pans out as planned. One good thing about Stanbridge College is each student is assigned a Career Services Officer (CSO) who assists in building our resume's, Interview training, and helping us find a match with an employer that suits our specific desires. I'm not to excited about paying back $50,000 plus dollars for an AA degree but if I fall in love with my career it will be worth it. It's a risk but I feel it's a risk worth taking after researching this field.
College Junior 2013-06-06T03:46:47Z
I'm currently not happy because I feel like I'm not being challenged. I am excited about graduating though and the growth that's expected in my chosen career (OT). I chose this school because there is only 4 like it in the state of California and all have a wiatlist of about 2 years or more. I'm very dissapointed that many of my credits didn't transfer over to this school (Stanbridge) because of the different "course descriptions."

the education i am getting is worth the tuition. I got some financial aid that helped.but i am okay with it because I know that after I graduate there are jobs waiting for me.financial aide helped me with everthing and even emailed me when I had to renew anything.they even helped me apply for a few scholarships.
College Senior 2013-05-23T02:31:12Z
Each class had powerpoint to go with the book.which was very helpful but it was really up to students to help eachother memorize and summerize the important things.if is wasnt for my classmates staying and studying.I wouldnt of made it with just the lecture alone.You basically finish classes in 8 days sitting in 8 hr classes.Anytime i needed tutoring the teachers always stayed as long as I needed and were very knowledgeable.The key was to teach others and stay for study groups.
College Senior 2013-02-07T17:29:28Z
Loved meeting career services they were very informative and helpful.
College Senior 2013-02-07T17:25:52Z
Standbridge is honestly the best college I've come across since moving to California. Everyone from addmissions to the student services are committed to helping their student succeed. My particular degree is costly. So far that's the only down fall I've found.

Labs Are Amazing! They have very realistic lab settings at Stanbridge. Some labs are set up like a hospital setting would be, some are set up for home care. They have state of the art equipment and are up to date with the newest products. Also, a really great thing that Stanbridge does, is to have a testing review at the end of each term that helps you prepare for your license or certification tests.

Modern and Fresh. The facilities on campus are very modern and clean. The classrooms are very nice, and the computer labs have plenty of computers to offer. There are no gyms, theaters, or auditoriums. But they have a nice student center where treats are usually waiting for students. There is also a refrigerator and microwave ready for the students to use. It is a very nice campus.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
