Once I took the Allen School tour I knew it was a perfect fit for me. All the staff was there to help me with every step of my enrollment, especially in filling out the paperwork. Also, my adviser explained my curriculum in detail. Every professor I've had so far has been excellent. The teachers know how to give and take with each other, when to be really strict and hard on their students, and when to lean back and teach them slowly. Also, they're a very charitable school because each class has their own cause, like my class which raises money for meningitis and the school is helping us out to raise that. It's a great school to go to and it exceeded my expectations.
I was looking online for work-at-home jobs and college ads keep popping. I've already taken medical terminology and clerical before and I was thinking about what I can do. At first, I thought that it's too good to be true. There's no way I can learn medical coding and stay at home and work. I gotta have to work somewhere which was okay.
Then somebody called me from some company explaining how they try and help people with jobs to further their schooling. He told me that he's got three different schools and jobs on his list, and if I could give information, they would take my number and spread it out there. I kept getting call after call and I just kept hanging up. One day, I answered my phone and it was from Allen School. It was just wonderful and they were just so nice. Everything has been great. I only had a few technical problems on my computer. But other than that, it's been wonderful.
Their enrollment process was for a few weeks. They needed my information on different degrees and stuff. I kept my GI then I dropped out of school. I took my GED in 2012 and I went for medical and clerical in 2013. I also had to get a copy of my divorce papers and marriage license because I was once married. So, that was a three weeks worth, then the financial aid that was calling back twice a week. The learning experience was great too and everything has been so self-explanatory. They got a lot of videos that are for students and it goes step-by-step.
Then the professors were very relaxing. I love Stephanie and she's my favorite because she's so bubbly. She said that she's sorry as she always talks. But I love to have a professor like that and how she makes me feel comfortable. If there's dead silence, that's when there's more uncomfortable eerie feeling. She talks about her family life and her experiences even the one when she had her surgery and she started bleeding again. She left, she came back and we had fill-ins like two in one night. One was Alicia. They were wonderful. They make you feel welcome even like someone was there in school for 27 years. I like the fact that someone is always there. I can call and get hold of someone at any time.
I didn't want to be on campus to go to school and I wanted something that was all online. I called Allen School and they signed me up. Enrollment was easy. I'm only halfway through my class but so far it's going good. I really like the teachers.
Allen School was recommended to me by friends that attended there. The enrollment was very fast and easy. My professors were really nice to me. They helped me a lot, so I appreciate it and I’m really happy with it. I have completed the program, and I’ll be going to externship early. There are times they hire you in your externship but if they don't, the people at Allen School are willing to help me find a job. I'd recommend them.
I was looking for a job and doing an online application. One of the questions they asked me was if I'm interested in furthering my education and I said sure. So then Allen School called me and I liked what I heard. I also liked the way the program was laid out so I thought to give it a try. It's in a field that I'm interested in and I'm really glad I did it.
I especially like my health information management class and the professor was awesome. I like the way he teaches. He makes it fun so it's easy to learn when they do that. The other professor is good but she’s dry, a little harder to learn, and she stays pretty monotone. I wish she would open up a little bit as it seems she could be a lot of fun. We got her to open up a little bit every now and then. It's so much easier to learn if students enjoy the class and the participation. The teachers need to participate as well.
I'm still looking for work and once I get one, I'm hoping everything lines up so that it doesn't interfere with the classes as it's gonna be my biggest fear. The hours of the job that I'm most interested in would work because I would be off at five then I would be able to be home by 5:30 which is what I need so hopefully I get that one. I'm hoping everything continues for me as I am very interested in doing this. Eventually, I'm not gonna be hirable material out in the field but that doesn't mean I'm not hirable at home doing remote. And this is the type of job I can do remotely.
I needed something that I could be able to do from home and I like the health care field. The enrollment experience with Allen School was very easy. A lot of schools make the student fill out the financial aid by themselves, but Allen School pretty much did it for me and walked me through the steps so I don't have to be confused. The teachers are very good and take their time with the students to explain stuff. If you don't understand what's going on in the classroom, you can always call or email. If you email, they'll call you back and are willing to walk you through the steps so you'll understand what you're supposed to be doing in the classroom. Allen School should keep doing what they're doing. I've recommended them to somebody.

I have two kids and I'm trying to do something better for us. And since the Allen School offers online courses, which was what I was looking for, I decided to talk to them. I liked what I heard so I enrolled, and it was pretty easy. They were listening and understanding because I've been out of school for almost 25 years and they talked to me until I understood what they were saying. I'm not good with computers so it's taking me a minute to try to get the test on my computer, but the classes are great. I love the professors. They always ask us, “Do we get it? Do we understand?” If we don’t, they take their time to go back to it with us. My son is in middle school, and they don’t do all that. They’re like if you don’t get it the first time, that’s it. They don’t break it down so you can get it. But with the Allen School, they make sure you get it. They go over it with you to make sure you understand.
Even their tech support is awesome. They'd call me to make sure I'm okay and they help me out a lot. They'd show me stuff that I didn’t even know a computer could do. Overall I was glad that my friend recommended me to them because she also went to them and she loved it. I'd also recommend anybody to go to them. I just wish I had more time to spend and give them all my attention.
I was referred to Allen School by another school because my schedule wouldn't work with them due to my job. Allen School really helped me out a lot during enrollment, but it was bumpy because I was figuring out whether I was gonna be able to enroll or not. But I was able to enroll two weeks before class started because there were little changes at work. The communication was very clear. Everybody contacted me fairly and answered all of my questions. The professors are very insightful and they answered all the questions that I've asked. The course material is very comprehensive. The only difficult part is the student app. It needs to get worked on because sometimes even if you have a good connection, it kicks you out.
Allen School called me after I put in that I was interested in going back to school. The young lady Christine who called me sounded so peppy, was really good and nice. She made the enrollment process fairly easy and they were able to get me a partial grant for the financial. I'm out of work so I didn't have any money and they waived the financial until after I could get a job. They were pretty helpful and really good with me. The learning experience has been good, although it's different for me because I'm used to a classroom where the teacher stands in front and I sit in a table or desk and not the computer virtual stuff. The professors have been great, everybody's been good, and I really liked Dr. **.
I found Allen School online and they were the first one I came to. The adviser was absolutely helpful and knowledgeable. I'm doing well with my studies and the experience has been good.
I looked up Allen School online and the adviser that introduced me to the school talked to me and I gave her my situation. She then helped me pick out what type of classes I should be taking during the night or during the morning. That part was pretty enjoyable and good. I also enjoyed attending classes at Allen School.
Allen School said something good and convinced me to go back to school. All the professors I got were nice and they helped me with all that I wanted to ask them. It was a good experience going there and I'm having my internship now.
Enrolling at The Allen School was not easy for me because I was still in school, but they were able to work with me. Learning here is difficult at first, but I can work with it and I'm still here right now.
My experience attending Allen School is really good. The adviser was very helpful and knowledgeable. She forced me a little bit but I appreciate that she did ‘cause if not, I would have never gone to Allen. However in some of the classes, I feel like I already know everything that they’re teaching me. But it’s a really good school and I like it.
I liked Allen School's flexible schedule. My adviser was really helpful during the enrollment process. I've been in the school since September and I'm really learning a lot. When I don't understand something, the professors are there to help me.
I've seen on Snapchat one of the girls attending Allen School. I've seen her snaps and asked her how was it going with the school and she said it was great and she loves it. So she made me an appointment with her counselor. Then I got to speak to his counselor and I got enrolled at Allen School. The counselor was very motivating. I probably wouldn’t have done it with Allen School if not because of him. Some of the professors are awesome and some are not so awesome. Some of them are very helpful. And anything that I needed, I can go to them and they will be able to help me out. I feel like they're very inviting. However, I have an issue with one particular teacher but it could be because of a language barrier.
I was looking to do a medical assistant program and came across the Allen School site. Then I went into the school directly and got more information. The enrollment process was simple and fast. I learned a lot while I was with them and the experience was very informative and had a lot of depth. The flexible schedule was okay. However, more effort should be placed in researching sites for students because they're giving students a lot of knowledge and they need to know that the sites are what they are expecting so that they can show their experience then or they can gain more experience. I expect to be in a good site, in a good medical facility. I am on the verge of going on an externship and I had to do a change of site because I wasn't too satisfied with it. That was my only problem.
I'm enjoying my experience with Allen School. The adviser is very helpful and he gave me a lot of advice on how the school was and how everything was going to be. The classes and the tour were also fun. The professors have that level of understanding that we all are different and have different ways that we learn. They do the best that they can if we need any help with the homework or if we don't understand something, we could always come to them and ask them questions.
Allen School is right along where I live. The pricing is a little high and enrollment was challenging but I'm working along with it. However, the professors are very helpful and the experience has been good so far.
My mom told me about Allen School and when I enrolled, it was welcoming and easy. I stepped into the office and they made me feel comfortable and broke down the process to me. It wasn't too complex and was pretty straightforward. They had me meet with a couple of the staff first when I got there so they let me know who are the faces I'll most likely see around the office. Allen is a great school and I would it recommend to a friend and to anybody looking into pursuing health sciences.
I had one teacher who's very strong. He forces some students who don't really give as much attention as they should but he demanded respect as well as made the students feel like no matter what they came there for, he's going to make sure they got their money's worth. He also made sure that the students do what they got to do, that their homework is done and that they take the class as serious as possible. He had the patience as well as the understanding for the students he was dealing with and of the fact that they are diverse. He didn't mind taking time out afterwards to work with the students. He even talked to me about personal issues and was ready to listen. Overall, I feel like he made the experience quite worthwhile. I didn't mind waking up everyday to go to class knowing that he was my teacher.
Prior to going to Allen School I went to a school for helping people and in the field of bible and seminar institute. Going then to Allen School is somewhat related to my field which is loving people, and taking care and helping others out. The enrolment experience was very great. I met with a representative who was working with the Allen School team and she was very nice to me. She showed me around the school and what I would be getting myself into. She explained to me in detail what the school was about and it was a very great experience for me.
The teachers I encountered were great as well. They took their time to help me to learn on what I didn't understand before I went out into the field and not just left me behind. They did make sure that one was well equipped and well trained before going out in the field. I had a desire to learn and my passion was caring for others and that's what I wanted to do, so I made the best of it and I came out successful.
It was excellent at Allen School. My enrollment experience was good. However, they were trying to force me to do a medical assistance course and I told them that's not what I was there for. I was there to become a CNA, and I did what I told them I wanted to do. I had a wonderful teacher. She was one of the best and was hands-on. She made sure we'd get what we needed to learn before we were ready to fit the apron. I recommend people to go to Allen School. Seven people that I've sent have gone there.
During the enrollment at Allen School, there was a nice pitch to the school and they made it feel as though it was more family oriented. It was easy to the point where everyone was there and willing to help you in the best way they could. Some instructors were better than others, but that’s a part of any school. I learned something that I thought I was too old to learn. I really appreciated some of the teachers there because they hung in there with me. Overall, I had a great experience. It was a great course.
I went online and searched for medical assistance schools, and Allen School came up, so I went there for an interview. After enrolling with them, it was difficult at first because it's been awhile that I didn't go to school, and I was both going to school and working, but I did it and it was okay after a while. It was great being there and I loved the teachers. Everything was okay, and I learned a lot. My learning experience wasn't difficult at all. The teachers made it easy for us. We just had to do our homework, research and read more. Overall, my experience with Allen School was very good.
I enrolled at the Allen School of Health Sciences because I wanted to go back to school and thought of taking a course on medical billing and coding. The enrollment specialist was very helpful and explained a lot of things to me. The professors are excellent and I like the way that some of them explain things to try and help me understand things better while in class. I thought that I wasn't going to be able to keep up because of my work schedule and trying to go to school, but it turned out to be a good experience overall and I'm glad I made it through.
I like Allen School. I Iearned my friends had already signed in and they got approved. I wanted to try it too so I signed up. The professors were really great. It's easy to learn from them. They teach how I teach. They make sure that everyone understood what's going on in classroom. I like them and I recommend them.
When Allen School called and asked me if I wanted to further my career, I decided to go ahead and do it. Now I'm learning a lot and I really like it. The professors are pretty good because they've already been in the field. They know what to expect and they're teaching what we can expect when we start with our career. I like that they don't just read from a book and they've actually lived and experienced it. It's something I'm looking forward to--finding a job. I just wish that we would have books. We use eBooks, but I'm more of a hands-on and I prefer to flip through pages.
Allen School has an Accelerated Learning Program and it's for nine months compared to everywhere else that's 18 months. The enrollment went pretty smoothly and the program advisor was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Whatever she didn't know, she found out for me. So far, I'm in my last mod. I got four more weeks and I'm done. However, I felt that some of the classes were unneeded while some of them could have been longer and a little more in-depth like for the class on medical terminologies. HIM and Law and Ethics could have been combined too and they didn't need to be six weeks each.
Career Development was good but it needed to be geared more towards the medical field. I have 10 years of experience in the medical field but the girls in my study group do not. They were more looking for the buzzwords because they know that when you apply online for places, your resume gets filtered due to buzzwords. They felt that there wasn't enough of the real world that they needed. Also, some of the professors that we had were extremely knowledgeable while it felt like others were reading off of flash cards. But those aside, I'm getting a good enough education to where I feel confident when I take my test for my CTC that I will pass successfully.
Additionally, I made some really good friends in Allen which is hard to do when you are on an online course where you don't actually have to see anybody. There are three of us in the group and we have been together since the first mod. Even though one has moved into a different time frame, she's still in the same classes. They serve as another set of ears and eyes to bounce the question off of and to get a different perspective from.
My husband told me to take the time to go back to school and I brushed him off, but the more I talked to Nicole from Allen School, the more I thought that maybe it's the school that I needed to get into. I took it from there and I've been going to Allen School ever since. They listened to what I had to say instead of brushing me off and pushing the financial aid. They actually cared. Everything that Nicole mentioned, she stood behind.
Enrollment was quick and the classes are more hands-on than anything. The degree classes are a lot smaller. It's pretty good, more learning than it is joking. Everybody is about business to where you don't have people logging out and leaving class early. They pick and choose who they wanted to be in the degree program and it should be like that throughout all of the classes on the online program. And Allen School did a terrific job in picking the professors. All of them are amazing.
I called Allen School, talked to them and it sounded good. I had a very great enrollment experience. Some of the professors were amazing but some were not so great. Also, I hope that we had more classes on coding, especially on CPT coding. On our CPT course, we mostly went over ICDTN instead of CPT codes. I took my test the other day and we didn't spend enough time on CPT coding that we should have. I would like to see Allen School do more preparing for the test. I felt very confident before I went into the test but when I've seen it, I saw that we didn't learn all of that. So I felt very scared.
Allen School of Health Sciences has different schedules to choose from. It's online and so its flexible. The enrollment was stress-free because the person who helped me walked me through all of that and she was always there if I had questions. As soon as I had something, I emailed or called her and she would return my call or respond to my email.
I learned quite a bit in the classes. Even if I wasn’t there and I had questions and I wasn’t sure about something while doing homework or assignments, I could email or call and the teachers would respond. So in that way, I didn’t have to wait in class. They would give the best explanation they have. If they couldn’t, they would do some research and get back to you the next day or so. They're always there even when you private message them or if you needed help with assignments. If you missed a class, they would call you the next day to see if you were okay and if you had any questions.
It’s a great school because you can have make-up classes. Then if you need extra help, there were always extra classes that you could go to. Someone was always there to help you. I gained a lot of knowledge and a lot of friendships too. Overall, their service was excellent. The teachers, the professors, everyone was on point. It was a great experience and I’m glad I did it.
