I signed up for online classes at anthem College. I kind of felt that I had no choice. After a simple request for information, I was harrassed continueously! A divorced mother, the advisor and I discussed that a career change would be just what I needed. I enrolled in the criminal justice program. I was doing so well. Since it had been years since it had been years since I had been in school, I was quite proud of my my 4.0 GPA.
My oldest son, then 26, started having issues in Feb of 08. I then spoke to the advisor to request a temporary leave of absence until I could get some things resolved. She advised me to put it in writing along with proof and I did. On March 14,2008, I lost my son. After I was able to get myself together, I informed Anthem of my loss. I was then asked to write another letter and provide his death certificate. I did! In June of 2008, I contacted the school and asked if I could return. I had only three classes left. I was told at that time that Anthem was not accepting any new or returning students. I wad told to call back in January of 09. I have done this and was informend that Anthem was still not taking any new or returning students. Now I am left to pay Sallie May, I cannot transfer credits and cannot finish my last thee classes! I was hoping to obtain my degree by now, make more money and pay off my loans. Instead, what I have is the same low paying job, no degree, no credits, no way to finish my classes and NO ANSWers!!
I should have known something was wrong when they refused to take classes or give me credit for classes that I had already taken and had credit for at Baker College. Some of the classes were not only directly the same, but some were just worded a little differently (Oral communications VS. oral and written communications) for one, as a ploy to get more money! Anthem College (High Tech Inst) has taken advantage of people who only want to better themselves!
I hope that somone closes them down before the recruit any more victims!!
