Please! Before you go to beta tech do some research. When I left work to become a full time student and mother, I looked into Beta tech since they had a 2 year paralegal program, and i wanted to adventually get a bachelor's. I talked w/ a academic advisor, who assured me that my credits would transfer to a 4 year school, that started the first lie. I started the process, I first talked with financial aid, I was told that pell had covered all the cost, however the next day i was called in to sign loan papers. When I question what the loans were for since pell have covered my class cost, Ms. Rep said, well books, and other class fees are not covered by this, I guess it's partly my fault, I should have stopped there and looked further into the school. I didn;t, I started.
My shocker came after about 10 months, they did manage to have a sensible person teaching a class, she will remain nameless, she advised me that not only would the credits not transfer over, people do not make a practice of hiring students from Beta Tech. I went to the head, Dr. Butthead, I told of him of how they got me to be a student there, and then no credits transferring. He didn;t say anthing, but, "you only have a little time left". What the hell? I'm not talking about the time I have left, what about the time, and money that I invested? He sais nothing, I left the books, abd everything right there in his office.
I left the school right then, I am 9000.00 in debt with student loans, and didn't learn a thing, and they have put something against my credit for 4500.00. When I called to find out what this was they said school cost, then what the hell was the loan and pell grant for? I asked them for something that I signed a prommissary note for this, they hung up in my face. I called back and spoke with someone with the collection agency to get information about it, they told me to borrow money. I am now trying to dispute this off my credit, but it;s a lot to go through. Please do not fall into their trap, find elsewhere to go. Beta Smech is not getting a red dime from me!
