I feel that I have been rip-off by Ashworth College.

I was taking their classes and around Christmas time I recieved a letter that stated that I needed to sign up for another semester and what it was going to cost. Since I have a health problem and I am 63 years old, I decided that I would drop the classes so I called the school and told them what my plans were.

I told them that my health was not good and I had been paying my tuition from my social security disablity check, that I couldn't pay the balance of 320.00 in a lump sum. I asked them if it would be okay if I contunued to pay my payments as I had always done and I have never missed a payment. They said that it was okay that I keep making payments until the sum was paid off.

I asked at that time if I needed to write to the school and tell them my plan and was told that I didn't need too. So I thought that everything was taken care off. I paid my payment in December which was due the 23 and I always paid it at the first of the month as soon as I got the bill and my social security check. In January I got a call and they told me that I was behind on my payments and I again explained to the person on the phone that I was waiting for my bill to come so I could send in my payment. Which was by the way $37.00

At that time I told I wouldn't probably get any more bills to send in with my payment but to send in my payment with my student number on it which I did. Then a week later I get another call asking me about my payment. I told them I had just sent in a payment on the 5th of January.

So again I told that person what I had told the rest, how I plan to handle this bill and again I was told it was okay. I ask at that time if they would send me a print out of my payments when I got it I see that they charge me five dollars late fees. Then I got another call this week about Wednesday I told them that I had talked to some one last week and that they told me to keep on doing what I was doing. But the person I talked to this week became very rude and told me that he would be calling me every week until the bill was paid off. I asked him if I should talk to my lawyer and he said to go ahead that it wouldn't do any good for he was going to keep calling me.

I scraped up $40.00 more dollars and sent to them today.

This is making me sick. I don't need the stress with all my other health issues. I really don't know what else to do I am paying on it and I don't plan not to.

I just don't think that this school is a very good thing.

I had trouble with them getting my test scores back so I e-mailed my Missouri Rep and asked them to look into it and he contacted the school and then I got my test back.

They have now locked me off their web site so I can check on my payments and I haven't finished the last class but I can't get into take the exams.

I hope you were able to resolve your issue with Ashworth. I am  having the same issue with them right now. I am attending Post University right now and tried to transfer my credits from Ashworth and they said they don't accept them anymore. And the reason they don't do financial aid is because they are not recognized by the government as a legitimate school.
I canceled my account with them and they told me I owed $469.00 as the remaining balance and needed to pay it in full. I can't afford to pay all of it right now. I think this is a trap to keep your money either way. I said I would continue making monthly payments  as much as possible. They have now been harassing me every week for payments and have been threatening to put my account in collections soon. Right now my balance is at $369.00 and someone had emailed me back and had said that I if I can't pay the full amount pay the amount as often as I can. But I am still getting harassed. I swear they are a bunch of unprofessional crooks who care nothing about your well being. I'm so glad I got out while I could, instead of owing thousands of dollars and getting no real education.
