College Network TCN Scam, Withholding exam fees, Not legit college Indianapolis Indiana
College network has been a scam since day 1 but I unforntunately didn't realize it until it was too late. I signed with them back in Spring of 2010 and they came to my trade school with a pitch about how they were partners with Excelsior and would assist me with progressing from LPN- RN. Well they send you "modules" (3 ring binders) (which I should also mention they charge you extra for now even though they are part of the fees you pay) A lot of the content they have you study for is not on the exam and there is quite a bit of content not in the module that is tested.
I financed my exam fees which on their website says you will be sent a check within 2 weeks of submitting your grade from previous exam. Well let me say that the first few tests this was true but for the last year I have been waiting 6-12 weeks for these exam fees for which I've already been paid not to mention if you miss a payment to your loan with them they are on you instantly. I have called, emailed and instant chatted with nurmerous emplyees and I'm always told they same answer. We have had an influx in fee requests (really so many it take 3-4 months to process a check) Hard to believe in todays technology that this is the case. My guess is A. they are going under or B. they like to keep the money because they are earning interest on it and they have us that have signed contracts with our hands tied.
I should mention that when I was finally able to apply to Excelsiors Nursing program they informed me they hae nothing to do with College Network and they prefer their students to stay far away from College Network because they are a scam. If only I had known in time I wouldn't have wasted $6000+.
I also have a friend who signed up with them and she actually referered a couple friends when they were offereing a $200 credit for each sucker you were able to get and she never received her credits.
They are full of lies!! Watch out and beware before you sign.
