Concerning SUO, EDMU and other affiliates, I am a recent victim of this scam that has posed a financial burden on myself and family in life altering aspects. I enrolled in 2007 prior to SUO (Savannah, GA) online division being bought out by EDMU! Overnight, I end up dealing with people that seemed uneducated and lost. It was a group that was for the online division in Pittsburgh, PA, all hush hush of course. I inquired as to why I had so many advisers, and was thrown around like a hot potato? No answer. In 2009, I had a kitchen fire and had to move. I had to withdraw from class. They kept the tuition. Then I had issues getting internet beamed in the rural area I was at, and again, did not make class, they kept the tuition. Finally, I moved again, where I had satellite internet 559.00 to get installed top go to class; a tree fell on the receiver and I was going to be dropped for non participation so I withdrew, THEY KEPT THE TUITION!
I had serious issues with these folks in Pittsburgh, where they canceled my loans without my permission, and had me listed as WITHDRAWN for months! It was not until my mother, who was listed as a contact, got a phone call from Sallie Mae that I was even aware of such occurrence> Due to this withdrawn status, apparently for months, I was in repayment, although I had taken classes off and on, at least part time, 2009-2010, and this sent my loans into repaument. The school said it was not up to them to correct it. SO I started a mission that ended up back at the Pittsburg office, looking for the registrar, who I was told was NOT at the location!!!!
I then call Savannah, where I orginally enrolled. Still no help, as they do not deal with the online department. Then came time in July 2010 for our financial aid dispersments. On July 5, 2010, SUO adknowledged that a holiday, so our loans that were recieved went back to the lender to get dispersed later, 'just a small error that the lender made.' I call the lenders, well that is NOT true.
I was over charged 625.00 that I found in mathmatical errors on the Student account sheet, and had to write a formal appeal for my own money!!!
Now that my credit is 51K in student loans and I am still 7 full courses away from graduating, my loans are at an all time MAX, this school has NOT answered my phone calls, voice mails, emails, requests or anything!!!
This is the finest example of FRAUD I have ever seen, and .................
THIS IS NOT THE END OF IT!
I will be the one Tom spoke about.........
SEE YOU GUYS IN THE HEADLINES!
Stay away from SOUTH
