By BETH J. HARPAZ Associated Press | Jul 7, 2015, 5:10 PM ET

Commercial schools have been around for centuries, providing training in fields like accounting and construction that loftier educational institutions did not always offer. America’s first billionaire, John D. Rockefeller Sr., completed a course at one such school, Folsom’s Business College in Cleveland, 1855.

But these days, for-profit colleges are under fire. Federal investigations found that many for-profit schools have low rates of graduation and job placement, and that they target low-income students who are eligible for federal loans. The schools pocket the loan money for tuition, but when students drop out or can’t find jobs, they can’t repay those loans. If they default, the taxpayers lose, too. For-profit students make up 47 percent of all federal student loan defaults, according to a 2012 Senate investigation.

And yet, the appeal these schools hold is understandable. They’re often easy to get into, and they do a great job marketing themselves as a way to enter careers in trendy or growing fields like technology, marketing or health care.

“For-profit schools do offer a practical option for many seeking education and training in high-demand fields. Otherwise these schools would not survive,” said Richard Ruch, former dean at DeVry University and author of the book “Higher Ed, Inc.: The Rise of the For-Profit University” (Johns Hopkins University Press).

Here are some tools for evaluating the quality of for-profit colleges. While it’s especially important to do your homework if you’re considering a for-profit school, these resources can be used to judge traditional colleges as well.

THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR EDUCATION STATISTICS

The National Center for Education Statistics at https://nces.ed.gov/ offers data collected and analyzed by the federal government.

Under “School Search,” click “College Navigator,” and on the left-hand side of the page, pick a state or type of institution, or type in a school name. Listings for individual schools say whether they are for-profit, public or private not-for-profit schools. Each listing contains a wealth of data, from tuition prices to campus security, which includes crime statistics.

One important statistic is a school’s cohort default rate, which is the percentage of students who default on loans within a given period of time once they begin repaying them. Compare the default rate for a given school with what the site lists as national averages: There’s a 12.9 percent average default rate for borrowers who attended public institutions, 7.2 percent default rate for borrowers who attended private non-profit institutions and 19.1 percent default rate for borrowers who attended private for-profit schools.

Also look at each school’s “Retention and Graduation Rates.” Compare statistics for the school you’re looking at with national averages, found under “Postsecondary and Beyond” in the website’s “Fast Facts” section. For all public institutions, NCES says graduation rates average 58 percent. For private non-profit institutions, it’s 65 percent. For for-profits, it’s 32 percent. (The graduation rate is defined as the percentage of first-time, full-time undergraduate students who started a bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution in 2007 and received that degree within six years.)

The education resource site http://www.Noodle.com offers up much of the NCES data in a more user-friendly format, along with other information. Noodle.com also invites readers to submit questions to be answered by the site’s experts. For this article, Noodle.com crunched data like graduation rates and graduate starting salaries to identify some of the top four-year, for-profit schools with freshmen classes of 500 or more. The best, according to Noodle’s editor-in-chief Suzanne Podhurst, include Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, which offers degrees in entertainment, media and the arts; the School of Visual Arts in New York City; and Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina, a Christian liberal arts school.

ACCREDITATION

Is the school you’re looking at accredited, and if so, by whom?

“The accreditor should be one recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a reliable authority on college quality,” said Linda Suskie, assessment and accreditation consultant.

Accrediting agencies recognized by the U.S. Department of Education are listed at http://www2.ed.gov/admins/finaid/accred/accreditation—pg6.html .

“The next question is whether the school is having any accreditation issues,” Suskie said. “Increasingly, accreditors are providing public information on the status of institutions they accredit.”

Even if a school is accredited, its individual programs might not be recognized by professional boards in that field. “Too many accredited schools nevertheless offer unaccredited programs, like unaccredited nursing schools or law schools, and the graduates aren’t eligible to work!” said Carrie Wofford of Veterans Education Success. Ask a local employer in the field or a national organization (like the American Bar Association for law degrees) whether a degree from the school you’re considering is acceptable.

ONLINE REVIEWS

Online reviews can offer valuable opinions and anecdotes about schools. But as with all online reviews, some individuals who post negative or glowing comments may have ulterior motives, whether it’s an axe to grind or a vested interest in making an institution look good. That said, it’s worth seeing what folks are saying about your target schools on sites like https://colleges.niche.com/mti-college/.

 

On the west coast, Sacramento has many industries to offer its residents. Its location just a couple hours from the San Francisco Bay and at the junction of major railways makes it home to a variety of occupations and commercial activity. A perk of having such a diverse population with a variety of careers is that there are also market-sensitive offerings for Sacramento career training.

Accounting Careers

As Sacramento is home to a plethora of businesses, accounting careers are popular since all companies large and small rely on accounting professionals for budgeting, payroll, taxes, and more. Those who choose to follow this career path are educated on the financial bookkeeping required for every business. Math and computer skills are vital to this job and a comprehensive Sacramento career training program for accounting will include instruction and certification in business-oriented accounting software.

Business Administration Careers

Those seeking a job in an office environment would be most attracted to the business field. Again, Sacramento’s location as a hub for many industries means many companies are in demand for business administrators and managers. Sacramento career training should focus on skills training in organizational and project management software.

Information Technology

As one of the most diverse industries, Northern California technology career training is available for many types of IT careers. Application developers create mobile and web apps and are practiced in the programming tools needed for the different steps of the process. As technology advances, application developers are becoming more eagerly sought out by companies looking to reach new audiences. Another specialized area of information technology needed by many companies is technical support, or helpdesk support. Technical support is another field that is growing as more people rely more heavily on software and devices. Similarly, as businesses move their data to shared networks, network administrators become important members of the team.

Legal Careers

The legal field is always a popular target of Sacramento career training. However, to spare the time and expense of attending law school and passing the BAR exam, many interested in the legal field pursue careers as legal administrative assistants, who serve a primary role in every legal office. Also, careers in paralegal studies are popular as these individuals gain a deep understanding of the law and work directly on legal cases. There is always a need for those employed in the legal field, and it continues to grow.

Healthcare Careers

Healthcare is one of the leading career paths available to people across the country, including Sacramento. One path to pursue is that of phlebotomy, training medical professionals to draw blood for medical testing, transfusions, donations, and research. While the US allows for national certification, California has specific certification requirements and is more selective about which agencies it accepts certification from. A Sacramento career training program will be able to help students get the appropriate certification for practicing in California. Another essential position that is relatively fast to train for is as a medical billing and coding professional. They work closely with doctors and other medical personnel to identify how procedures should be billed. Those who pursue this career need to be extremely organized and be prepared to learn plenty of medical terminology. A third popular field in the healthcare industry is that of the medical assistant. Training in this field allows people to work directly with patients in a variety of healthcare settings. Medical assistants are especially vital to combat doctor and other medical staff shortages.

Cosmetology Careers

This field has a long history in the city of Sacramento with many options for training and employment. Cosmetology covers a wide range of professions, including salon technicians, makeup artists, hair stylists, spa professionals, and more. Sometimes a cosmetologist’s responsibilities will overlap into different areas of beauty, so Sacramento career training programs for cosmetology will provide a solid background in different areas of professional styling.

For more information about major industries and career training in the Sacramento area, contact an admissions counselor at MTI College.

Not Every Sacramento College is Equal

Choosing a Sacramento college is a decision that requires careful research and planning. When interviewing colleges, use these questions as a guide to select the best college for you. Read on to find out if MTI College is the right choice for you and learn why MTI was voted the best vocational college in Sacramento.

1. What’s the total cost? How will I pay for tuition or expenses that my aid doesn’t cover? Find out if you will pay by course, semester, or program. Are there fees for dropping or adding a class? How much will you pay for books, equipment, uniforms, lab fees, or graduation fees? The Department of Education administers several major student aid programs in the forms of grants, loans, and work-study programs. Get details at studentaid.gov.

At MTI College in Sacramento, students pay by the program and an overview of each program’s charges can be found on the program summary sheet. Furthermore, your cost for supplies will not change as you progress through the program, even if the prices for books or other program supplies increase in cost while you are in school. In addition to federal financial aid, such as Stafford Loans and Pell Grants, MTI College also accepts GI Bill benefits and the Cal Grant.

2. Of the recent graduates who borrowed money to attend the school, what percentage are delinquent in paying back their loans? A high default rate could be a tip-off that students are burdened by too much debt or having trouble finding jobs in their field. Get information about student borrowers’ default rates at College Navigator (for the colleges you’re considering) and ED’s Federal Student Aid site (default rate by type of school – public, private non-profit or private for-profit.)

For 2011, the most recent Department of Education reported 2-year cohort default rate, MTI College had a default rate of 5.5% compared to the national average rate of 10%.

3. Will a degree from this school get me where I want to go? Will you earn a certificate, a two-year degree, or a four-year degree? What percentage of students graduate? Use ED’s College Navigator to compare graduation and loan default rates, average debt at the school, tuition and expenses, and accreditation among schools. Ask the schools you’re considering to give you information in writing about job placement and average salaries for their graduates in the program you want to study. They may paint a glowing picture of student success and try to convince you that credentials from their institution will lead to a high-paying career in your chosen field. But some schools have been found to manipulate the data or lie about how well their graduates fare. Do some research using the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook. It has information about the average salary workers in a particular field are earning, the education or training needed, and the careers with the most new jobs so you can evaluate whether the results the school claims are realistic.

MTI College offers programs that are designed to lead to employment in high-demand fields. In fact, for the 2011-2012 award year, over 91% of MTI graduates that were available for and actively seeking work secured training-related employment. The MTI Career Services department maintains a record of these placements. To increase the chances of hiring MTI graduates, MTI offers a salary-back guarantee to employers through its Guaranteed Graduate program.

4. Is there pressure to enroll? Is a recruiter rushing you to commit? Are they leaning on you to decide before you have a chance to research the program and confirm the details of financial aid? Recruiters may be paid based on how many students they bring in. Before you decide on a program, read the materials, including the contract. Can you cancel within a few days of signing up and, if so, do the materials tell you how to cancel? If the school refuses to give you documents to review before you commit, don’t enroll. Period.

MTI College admissions advisors are trained to only enroll individuals who demonstrate the ability to benefit from its programs and whose interests match up with a program’s outcomes; they are never compensated on a per-enrollment basis. All applicants are given as much time as needed to review the enrollment documents and ensure that attending MTI College is the right decision for them. If an individual cancels their enrollment before starting their program, they are not liable for any portion of the program tuition, books, or supplies.

5. Can I transfer credit I earn at this school to other schools? If a transfer to another college may be in your future, find out whether that school would accept the credits you earned at the first school. If you attend a community college, ask about their articulation agreement: that’s a formal statement of what community college courses and credits you can transfer to a particular four-year college.

MTI College is established to offer programs that are designed to lead to employment upon graduation and not as a transfer institution. Furthermore, as with all colleges, acceptance of course credit is always up to the receiving institution. However, MTI College does have articulation agreements with some colleges, like CSUS and Golden Gate University, which allow certain courses to be carried over for credit.

6. Is the school accredited? Accreditation usually is through a private education agency or association that evaluates the program and verifies that it meets certain requirements. Accreditation can be an important clue to a school’s ability to provide appropriate levels of training and education – but only if the accrediting body is reputable. Most institutions consider regional accreditation as the highest stamp of approval and may not accept the transfer of credits from a school with national accreditation. Accreditation also may affect how prospective employers view your credentials. Two reliable sources of information on accreditation are ED’s Database of Accredited Postsecondary Institutions and Programs and the Council for Higher Accreditation database.

MTI College is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges through the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. On top of this accreditation, MTI is recognized as a Microsoft IT Academy, Oracle University Partner, Paul Mitchell School, and offers a paralegal program approved by the American Bar Association.

Important Note: These questions were put together with the help of the Federal Trade Commission’s “Eight Questions to Ask“.

Education has become not just a goal for students, but an industry that is driven by the misconception that there is a right way and a wrong way to earn your diploma. The truth is that after graduating from traditional 4 year college programs, many young adults are left directionless, without a set of practical skills or even relevant career experience. Watch this video to learn about some of the benefits of attending training programs at career colleges. For more information about training for careers in law, IT, healthcare, business administration, cosmetology, or accounting, contact an Admissions Counselor at MTI College.

Hair styling trends in Sacramento for fall 2013 are soft, yet classy looks. These hairstyles radiate sophistication through natural, relaxed styling. Many hair schools in Sacramento are spotlighting on the trends of fierce and bold hairstyles as well. Some of the popular styles are created with intentional loose strands to appear slightly unfinished. Styling creams are often used with these types of haircuts to provide shape and definition.

Hair Styling: Sleek & Straight

Hair schools in Sacramento are training students to develop creative looks with defining styling creams. The sleek and straight look is at the top of the fashion hair trend for the fall season. Several top fashion designers used this look at Paris Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week. The sleek hairstyles provide stylists with the opportunity to mold a wide variety of patterns in the styles. For example, two one inch chunks of symmetrical hair may be pulled from the face to the crown or the nape of the head to create loops in the strands.

Ombre Hair Colors

Ombre hairstyles are very trendy this season. This hair coloring technique incorporates a blend of dark or brunette roots that become lighter in the middle, and transitions to higher levels of light colors near the ends. This hair color style can be used subtly for more natural-looking highlights. It can also be very dramatic, turning into an extreme shade of blonde. Dip-dyed hair is also popular. Dip-dyed hairstyles are great for individuals who want dramatic changes in color. A dip-dyed hair color, consistent with its name, looks as though the ends were dipped in the dye. Dip dye is a popular punk style, using contrasting shades of blue, pink, and green.

Updo Styles

The latest Sacramento hair trends integrate a variety of twists, loops and spiked hairstyles. Hairstylists are creating styles to bring the hair off the face to show dramatic makeup. A popular updo hairstyle incorporates several looks, integrating tight coils and braids. The braids are worn over the top of the head from ear to ear. Deep parts in the center of the head to separate two tightly worn braids or coils are also trendy. The classic fishtail braid continues to remain one of the stylish hair fashion trends. Loose ponytails that are pulled up near the crown of the head are also picking up this season.

As the graduation rate of doctors continues to be an issue in the United States, the shortage of physicians is expected to become an even bigger problem. Currently, less than 25% of newly graduated doctors choose to go into primary care, and of that group less than 5% locate their practices in rural areas. In addition to a shortage of primary care physicians, there is also a critical shortage in other specialties such as general surgery. As a result, hospitals and other medical facilities are feeling the strain of having fewer personnel to handle a variety of necessary tasks such as medical coding and billing. To ease the strain on these facilities, many are turning to those people who have received medical billing and coding training to handle the workload.

Medical Billing and Coding Training

For medical facilities that need help handling their vast amounts of paperwork, the trend is to outsource the work to those skilled in medical billing and coding. Most training programs in this field can be completed within six months to one year, and provide graduates with knowledge on numerous topics. Students in medical billing and coding training programs learn the many different coding techniques necessary to ensure medical records and insurance forms display the correct procedures and conditions for each patient, in addition to learning how to bill patients and insurance companies. Upon completing the program, a graduate can choose to take various certification exams from the American Academy of Professional Coders, leading to certification as a Certified Coding Professional. While many medical billing and coding professionals work in hospitals or medical offices, others choose to be self-employed and work from home.

Medical Assistant Certification

Another position helping to ease the strain on the health care system is that of medical assistants. People interested in completing a medical assistant diploma program have numerous options from which to choose, including online studies or in person at community colleges or technical schools. A medical assistant diploma program can be completed within one year, providing a student with knowledge of various medical duties. A medical assistant is not only skilled in handling various office procedures such as scheduling appointments, calling in prescriptions and speaking with insurance companies, but is also able to perform medical procedures. These can include checking a patient’s blood pressure, height and weight and pulse. They can also become certified to perform more complex tasks such as administering EKG’s to patients and performing phlebotomy duties.

As hospitals and medical offices continue to struggle with a lack of doctors, the role of medical assistants and billing and coding professionals will grow in importance. For those seeking a medical career with fast-track training, these two careers are good options.

“The Master Student Award is an opportunity for MTI to celebrate our spectacular students. Master Students receive an award of recognition and are displayed on the Hall of Fame.” – MTI College Announcements

So what does it take to be an MTI College Master Student? After talking with Sue Thornton, Director of Student Services at MTI College, it’s clear that it takes quite a lot indeed. Of course academics are taken strongly into account, but behavior, drive, attendance, and citizenship are just as key, if not more so. Over the last fifteen-or-so years the merit awards at MTI have undergone quite the evolution; and in the last five or so years, the newest concept has landed, now, on the Master Student Award. I had the opportunity to talk with a recent Master Student Award recipient, Meleane Fehoko, a student in the Accounting program, and her story is a perfect example of what makes an exemplary Master Student.

First, though, a little background on the award itself. At the end of each term, when MTI instructors are busily finalizing grades, they are given the opportunity to nominate their students for the Master Student Award. After spending a full term, and often more time, with their students, the instructors are in the best position to communicate who is making the clear and driven effort to excel in their career at MTI not only academically, but also as a member of the community. The department Chairpeople and Deans are given the list of nominees and are able to determine recipients, but when it comes down to it, it’s the instructors’ nominations that decide who is in the running for and who will eventually be named a Master Student.

It would be easy for an award like this to become what some could consider as a throw-away; something that is given out every term regardless of whether or not anyone really deserves it. However, MTI does not fall into this pitfall. If no students are nominated and selected as Master Students in a given term, then no award is given. Only when a student shows true drive, academic excellence, and exemplary citizenship does MTI announce them as a Master Student.

With that in mind, it is clear why it is very rare for a student to be named a Master Student early on in their career at MTI. More often it takes several terms for instructors to see a time-tested drive and dedication in a particular student. That is probably why so many students ranging from Phlebotomy to Paralegal appear in the Deans’ offices asking what it takes and how they can become a Master Student. Not only is it a great honor on the MTI campus to have your picture posted on the Master Student wall, and a thrilling moment to be called out for your achievements in class (says John Alcorcha, Chair of Core Education), but a brilliant addition to a graduate’s portfolio and resume as well. But remember, academics alone won’t earn someone the award. “If everything is about a GPA, you make it impossible for people to be people,” says Thornton. If a student is ordinarily a straight-A student but has a personal life crisis that takes his or her attention off of academic pursuits for a term or two, their perseverance and dedication are taken into account, even when their GPA may be lower than it usually is.

This is where Meleane comes in. She is from an island of Tonga in the South Pacific Ocean where she lived with her family until moving to Sacramento three years ago to live with her aunt. She had always dreamed of coming to America to try to live the American Dream – little did she know a friend of hers entered her name in the Diversity Visa Program also known as the Green Card Lottery. She was granted the path to American and she jumped at the opportunity.

“In Tonga we can live off the ocean and the plantation. We are poor, but everyone is happy,” she says of her home. There is no need for renting an apartment because there are no apartments to rent. There is no need for grocery bills because there are no groceries. People in Tonga fish for and grow their own food and live in a peaceful harmony. They even have free access to medical care. However, living this way doesn’t provide one with much job experience. “I am tired of being rejected from a lot of jobs,” Meleane says. With no experience in the job market, employers are hesitant to hire her. However, when asked what she thinks the Master Student Award will do for her she says, “I can’t tell you how happy I am that I received it! It makes me feel comfortable… proud of myself. I didn’t know that they were going to award me with that. I didn’t know they’d mention me for bugging [my teachers with questions] in class!”

Meleane graduates in April and hopes to continue into Year Two at MTI College, but she knows that the Master Student Award will already add credibility and emphasis to her resume; credibility and emphasis she most definitely deserves. With drive and dedication to her studies that bring her to school early, use up her lunch periods and keep her on campus working late, she is a perfect example of a true Master Student.

I asked if she had any advice for her fellow students – whether in the Business, Legal, Technology or any other major – who want to strive for the Master Student Award and she said simply, “spend every moment here as though it is your future. You have to want something in order to act upon it and later achieve that dream. I want a job and a better future so badly, in return I study hard. I struggle each day and in every class to clear my confusions hoping I’ll finally get a job in the near future.”
