Axia College Of University Of Phoenix3157 E. Elwood Street phoenix, Arizona United States of America
i enrolled at the university of phoenix thinking that it was a great way to further my education and still spend quality time with my children. now i i know i was totally wrong. when i spoke to the enrollment advisor we discussed my options and i decided to enroll into the adminstrative health care pharmacy practice that was soposed to cost $9,500 to recieve my associates degree. i also filled out a fafsa and applied for some student loans to cover the amount of the courses. when i was down to my last two courses i failed the algebra course ok so i would have had to retake that course no sweat. when it came to the failed humanitys class i called the acidemic advisor to let her know that i was unable to take the course due to my mothers kidney failure and many dr. appointments.
i continued trying to attenend my class so i would not be dropped as a student because if you are out of attendence for a total of three weeks they drop you as a student and then you must start paying back your loans right away. well time went on i recieved a failing grade when the acidemic advisor had called me back the course was over and she stated that i should not have been posting assignments in the class if could not do all the work, but i didnt want to be dropped from the program so i did what i could. when speaking with the financial advisor i was told that they where still going off of my 2008-2010 aid papers so i had no more funds available for my classes, but i filed for 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 aid as well. i was then told by the financial advisor that he had spoke to his supervisor and they would waive the algebra class fees but i must first pay for the humanitys class that had called and tried to postpone untill times where better for my family so i had no choice but to with draw and apply to a college that close to my home.
when i called to have my transcripts transfered to the new college i was told that they where unable to transfer them due to the balance of the course i tried to postpone from the start, to contact financial advisor to set up a payment araingment and he could over ride the transcrips to have them sent i still have not heard from the yet i still dont know where my aid for 2009-2010 is or the aid for 2010-2011 rears are but i have found out that i owe student loans in the amount of 20,000 dollars rather than the 9,500 dollars that i was told in the start. now i have to start over from the begining at a new college when i was only two courses away from graduation so theres more money that i have to pay when this nightmare is over
