SEO Reputation Management at its best!

Beware! Do not inquire about any internet education oppotunities.  A representative will call you and tell you in glowing terms how you can get your education at home and at your own pace.  The representative will tell you how successful all of their students are and that they have very high job placement numbers.

The only thing that is true is that you can do it at home.  You don't get to work at your own pace, and the degree is practically worthless.  The cost of the degree is near the tuition of an Ivy League; which they don't tell you.  They break down the costs in their explanation is such a way that if you are not paying very close attention-you will be paying upwards of $70,000.00 for you degree.  That might not be so bad, but the degree is worthless.

I am embarressed and ashamed that I fell for this.  I am nearly losing my home because of the extensive loan payments and wage garnishments.  I am disappointed that the government loans and grants would apply to institutions that are meerly money making businesses that offer a inferior product.

Please contact your local colleges and universities or a community college to start and/or continue your education.  They offer online courses and satellite campuses to help you get a degree without scamming you.  Don't fall for the trap I did.  You desire to better yourself shouldn't end up costing you your future.

Such a horrible company, I can relate to you.

AUTHOR: Keri - (USA)

I had the same experience, I am in the hole definitely over $50,000 because of this company. They added classes at the end of my degree program right before I was supposed to graduate, and said, that if I didn't pay for these new classes, I would be kicked out. I had loans and grants to cover the whole program until they added 5 classes a few weeks before I was supposed to get my degree. They didn't even give me time to CLEP out, when the found out, I was deciding to take the Clep exams, they kicked me out and gave me a $900.00 bill. What a messed up company!
