A year ago my boyfriend and I went to the school because we got a phone call, he wanted to certified as a pharmacy tech....well they have lip (can definitely make people believe they are a "good school") they told us "oh Sanford brown is the bestof the best" and that they don't accept criminals and that they guaranteed we'd find a job with the education offered there. Well first of all, we had to pay for our certification $100 and plus tuition and fees for the PHARMACY TECH course which can be offered at any comm college for no more than $3000, and this gay school charged us $12000(as IF it was really worth it).....there were soo many people in that school who had murder charges etc.(now I'm talking about the one in hillside illinois) but yeah...people with tattoos people who came in late to class all the time and were never dropped. It was definitely not what we were expecting at all. At least not what we were they are paying for the certification (or so I heard) and we called because we believe we should get a refund since we are paying $12000 for absolutely NOTHING and they won't refund the money!!!! Yeah this school is full of rats who want to take all your money for an education that you can learn some place else for cheaper. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME....:( I regret ever going here soooooo much!!

I having been at Sandford Brown for 4 days, monday will be my 5th day taking evening classes.I am in the MA program and I know that it has all the credentials necessary to take the registered MA exam. However, the teacher (and I use that word losely) does not even have an associates degree and texts throughout the entire class and I just want out so that I can go to another school that will give me as AAS and I can take the ECG certification excam. My question is, can I withdraw and get at least 95% back of tuition. I have used my husbands GI bill and feel terrible if they will not get their money back because of this awful place. Can anyone help. I have tried to talk to someone at SB but of course get no answer. They say I have to talk to my rep but if I tell her I want to leave and I can't because of the contract they will hold this against me and mess up the rest of my time there. Yes, this school and their staff if so unprofessionl and I can see this happening.

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to let everyone know that Sanford brown and I go way back. I was the first to post on what a scam this school is. When I attended it was Ultrasound Diagnostics. They change the name when they become to well known in the field on what kind of school they run. Please go to and search Sanford Brown and Ultrasound. You will see the same complaints mine of which is I think the first one. I to had an attorney that was interested but after reviewing the case he decided not to pursue. There was also an attorney in California that I spoke with that specializes in scam schools but I never heard back from him. This school was sued successfully in Penn. and it went all the way to the supreme court with them even stating what a sham school this is. You can google lawsuits Sanford Brown to find it. This school is owned by the CEC group which also owns International school of Design and a few others. Please read my original post to get a better idea of what I went thru. Anyone considering this school run fast and far away. Go to a community school. Sanford can't place anyone for their internship because no business wants them.

Wow, it really saddens me to hear that all of this is going on with SBI. I really had no idea until I got online to see if my credits would transfer. I graduated from SBI in 2002 (then Ultrasound Diagnostic School) and I got an externship and have been working in the same field for 10 yrs. Never had any problems with the school. I also went back 4 yrs after graduating as an MA to do ultrasound, but couldn't find an evening job while I attended school during the day so I withdrew. I hope you all get the resolution you are seeking from them and wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. Not sure if it matters, but I attended SBI in Atlanta, GA.

subject Sanford Brown
I noticed in the comment before yours that she referred to the school as Sanford Brown Institute. When I enrolled it was SBI but I noticed on my Diploma it said Sanford Brown College. How did they change my student loans without my knowledge or permission? When I re-enrolled a year later they were in the middle of remodeling the school and colors from blue to maroon and the name was changed to College. Please send me one of those forms.

13 years later I am still paying on a degree that doesnt exist. The ONE job lead they gave me claimed I was not trained for the job at all in the tools they use. I have never recieved a job in any field related to the 2 yr degree they gave me. I would like to find others who may have filed a class action suit from classes offerred in 1997-99 Interactive Multimedia. I am not at poverty level and unable to work. I need the loan forgiven. 13 years and it is only 1/2 paid. Help email me at [email protected] if you know of such a lawsuit.
