I went to Hickey College and graduated in 2007 with an Associate degree in their Computer Network Management program.
The teachers were nice, helpful, and had a good general knowledge of the classes that they teach, however throughout my time in college there they claimed multiple times that they would do all that they can to help you get your credits to transfer to another college once you graduate since they don't offer any higher computer degrees. Upon graduating and trying to transfer my credits to go to Kaplan University to get my bachelor’s degree, I found that many of the core classes would not transfer because they were not worth enough credit hours. Upon contacting Hickey College as they had told me to do for help in this situation, they didn't do anything to even try to help me to get my credits to transfer and instead tried to get me to go back there for a business degree.
From my experience with this college I have to say that if you want a computer related degree, it's not really worth it to go to Hickey College. I would find a college that offers further computer degrees so you can be sure that you don't have to re-take a bunch of classes like I have to do. I have spoken with several classmates of mine from Hickey and the ones that are trying to further their education with a Bachelor’s degree are running in to the same issues as described above but with other colleges/universities.

This school teaches you how to prepare for the real world workplace. The degree of difficulty is easy as compared to universities and even some community colleges. Hickey teaches you a lot about professionalism, which is needed, although I would not go here if you are planning on continuing your education by getting your Bachelors, Masters, etc. Reason being is because this is a proprietary school and even though it is accredited, none of your credits will transfer to a major university such as University of MO, St. Louis University, etc because most major universites have a different accreditation. Trust me, as a graduate from here, I have already tried getting my credits to tranfer to a university and they did not except any. If you are thinking about getting an Accounting Degree here for instance then plan on only getting data entry jobs and making under 30k a year. Just remember you will be beat out by someone with more experience and a higher degree from a higher institution for a job. So bottom line is if you are thinking about having a competitive advantage over everyone, I would advise to go to a 4-year institution and receive that higher pay.
