Rasmussen college-Rasmussen College online Failing the Students; Deceptive Practices, Set Up for Failure, Fraud, Scam, "Caveat Emptor" Maitland, Online, Bloomington Florida, Minnesota
CAVEAT EMPTOR! I wanted to send this follow-up so that you will know I have already taken the appropriate steps, and I did phone Deb Murray, Vice President of Financial aid at Rasmussen College.
It is not doubt that I am in a terrible posture not solely financial but mentally more important. I feel as though concrete enough circumstances that have led me to pursue the path to legal recourse in this matter, for which some of you already have become aware, and today is 07/17/2013.
Additionally, I intend to follow through with the RHIT exam administered by AHIMA, pass it after retesting. After which, I will hope to use the RHIT credential to land a job.
I am experiencing extreme duress, anguish, lost time and wages, mortification, deception, humiliation, all the terminology for which I am prey, and equally these mind-sets stem from this particular College establishment. I scream out to beware and to the college, “Shame on them for doing this to a true believer.”
“Caveat Emptor” is not germane enough, yet one must take heed because things are not what they seem upon entering the threshold of Rasmussen College online, which certainly holds true in the case of this CAHIM accredited establishment and it s counterpart AHIMA.
Rasmussen used me an s a vehicle and took advantage of my vulnerability from the year 2009 until I graduated in 2013 with an AAS in Medical transcription and an AAS in HIT.
First off they failed me in 2009 using me to Scam FEDERAL Financial aid funds which they would receive via students, then claim it will be well deserved for a program, medical transcription that I aspire to first and foremost, which no longer exists, and is now obsolete as of 2010. Furthermore, Rasmussen college fails to inform me that this was never a stepping platform to anything BS relevant, thus in the end, I am forced me to re-enter the doorsill of the online program, this time instead to pursue AAS in HIT then BS for HIM which at the end I will then sit for a State credential exam. This is based upon completing the very difficult program first which I did using the books and whatever else outdated virtual labs, horrific instructors that deliver help via emails which if you can imagine my dismay, contain typos and misspells, sentences such as “Does this make sense?” Alternatively, other 10 word sentences for example, “I hope this helps” … and so on yet I managed to keep with it.
I then complete this HIT program Final Exam with a 99 percentile and continue to prepare via the Delmar-Cengage 2012 PRG, to then sit for the RHIT credential exam which was supposedly, paid for by the college. I should then move into the HIMBS where I would sit for an RHIA exam. Here is where it gets incredibly pathetic … Lo and behold, though in the midst of the HIT program having spent financial aid of over $49,000 half of which went to the bogus transcription degree, I come to find (I learned this) the cap on financial aid as an undergraduate $53,000 will not allow for me to move into the HIMBS since having used $29,000 already paid to Rasmussen college for my AAS in MT that is of no merit finding a job in this lifetime, thanks to the invention and inception of, survey says: SPEECH RECOGNITON SOFTWARE.
What they did do was to keep using me as a vehicle to pay the useless instructors, provide outdated materials, some material and software programs from 2007-12, in addition to pull the worst unethical practice by providing a STATE exam (mind you my cumulative GPA after 180 credits is 3.84) administered by an Association (AHIMA) that fails to AND I QUOTE; "recognize the Delmar-Cengage 2012 RHIT/RHIA Professional Review Guide (PRG) as study material for preparing to test for the RHIT/RHIA Credential exam." AHIMA wants you to buy their own publication; they fail you if you do not! So in essence, I failed the State exam. AHIMA provides an exact RHIT Preparation, fourth edition RHIT Exam Preparation book, which you have to buy. $49,000 and Rasmussen did not assure me to pass the state credential exam over a lousy 60-dollar book, which they could have provided the students assuring them to pass the AHIMA state RHIT credentialing Exam. This is a CAHIM accredited college.
However, Rasmussen insists their PRG is adequate. They claim that the statistics show students pass the exam using this book. The book is published by AHIMA and the Exam is administered by AHIMA. Yet, I fail the exam based on the material, which I used in the PRG that only clearly helps me to pass the COURSE! I then purchase the AHIMA exam prep and it is completely different in terms of the material contained within, which is solely based on what AHIMA believes as a foundation for “real-world acute care medical office, HIT, HIM case scenarios.
This is the worst low-down, dirty rotten scoundrel, shame on you scandal that the two counterparts could stoop and pull not only over my eyes but also over the eyes of the federal government that paid them financial AID. The swindled me, leading me to believe that this Rasmussen HIT course would prepare me and provide me the materials to pass a STATE Credential EXAM. It did not. Now I am in $50, 000 in debt have not money to retake the $229 exam. I cannot find a company nor HIT job that will hire me without the RHIT credential on my Resume. I have my resume in eight different job banks and the AHIMA job bank and I cannot get a job. This is because I have spent $50,000 on two AAS programs. Thus, I did inot complete the HIMBS and that is what stopping me from moving froward. Also, an intentional, deliberate, manipulative, fraud was committed in selling me Transcription degree in the first place. Do not believe the hype! Do not go to this hokey-pokey school.
