I attend this school now and what everyone is saying is true. They don't care if you pass or fail just want your money. Teachers don't know the lesson, you know more then they do. Financial aid can't even tell you when you get your refunds back! I am transferring next year good luck!

First off, ask any potential employer in your field of study of their opinion on this school. Specifically in the fields of Nursing and Cosmetology in my experience. This school rates at the bottom of the list for reputation and reliable education and after my experience here I get the, "I told you so" comments. For me, I am an "A" student, and be prepared that if the rest of class flunks they will be given lenient pass that follows with public school tradition. First visit to the Marietta CTC headquarters on information day I am greeted with a Cosmotology professor who is arrogant and condescending to students. On visit to Paulding campus they are friendly and helpful. On visit to North Metro they are very friendly and seemed to have their act together. I chose to attend North Metro Technical College. NMTC merged into CTC summer of 2009 which I was not enthusiastic about due to CTC's reputation. However everything seemed okay at the beginning though I noted that the classes schedule for my diploma program changed from the initial program info sheet I first received. No big deal right? They had to modify, and changes have to happen sometimes. Apparently this was not a one-time change or rare occurrence. Every quarter they change the schedule of planned classes being offered, the order of prerequisites, even the times and days of week to some extent, which in turn constantly changes what you the student can take and in turn extends the time-line until graduation. They tell me now that I can't come back for the class I need until a year from now...maybe, but everything is subject to keep changing! They have no logical, sound, or reliable plan. Talk about utterly frustrating! Now I and other students must transfer in order to get the training and graduation we need to get to our careers. Shame on them for jerking students lives around! They are indifferent to the students livelihood to maintain a organized, consistent, and timely plan to graduate and start careers as well as students limited financial resources. Note the graduation rate is 18%...pretty pitiful result, but a good indicator for what your experience will be here. There are some great professors here, but the directors need to be removed before they sink everyone's current and future careers. I wish I could have given a better review...wish I could have gotten to graduation! So if after reading this you decide to attend be ready to hear later I told you so!
