I'm 56 years old, have been out of work for over a year and am currently enrolled at Heald College in Concord. Although I am only in my second quarter, my experience has been nothing but positive. I feel a lot depends on your personal attitude and commitment. Of course, you're going to find younger students who are immature and disruptive; but on the whole, most students take their education seriously. So far the instructors I've had have been more than willing to give help when needed. I'm learning a great deal and expect to become the success story the advertisements tell you about. I would have no qualms about referring someone to this college!

I have had the worse experience at Heald College in Hayward, CA. Every day, i feel as if Iâ€™m in "Romper Room" and even on there the kids where more mature. The sad thing is itâ€™s not really the students itâ€™s the teachers. They are absolutely ridiculous. I have tried on several occasions to talk to staff about the disruptiveness in the classrooms and the negative attitude the teachers have when trying to talk to them about something you donâ€™t agree with. As mentioned in the above statement they have a problem with calling your cell during class hours, more than once. This is the most immature staff Iâ€™ve seen. The Director of Academics is a crash dummy. She says sheâ€™s a Heald graduate, is that what I have to look forward to? Her education isnâ€™t too bright. I have been told by staff who to vote for during election the same person said that only men that dress well are â€œGayâ€. Yeah, this was told by a Teacher at the school. I told him I make sure my husbandâ€™s boxers are matching. Iâ€™ve had enough and Iâ€™m doing something about it. No more justifying ignorance.

I'm currently attending Heald College and so far it's been a good experience.
I'm enrolled in the electronics program and am learning a lot! It requires a lot of time and commitment but what college degree doesn't? It goes by quickly!
They've been a big help with financial aid, which is a plus.

I received two pressured calls from an associate in the Concord office. The first was during my lunch hour on my cell phone where I was told that she wasn't going to let me off of the phone unless I committed to a meeting. The next call was the next day where the call was again in my cell phone while I was working. When I said that I wasn't interesed, she hung up on me.
