University Of Phoenix- -Axia College.... University Of Phoenix--Axia College Financial aid Scam! Phoenix Arizona
This link http://www.lieffcabraser.com/press_releases/20070820-phoenix.htm , will tell you about how the school was sued for the enrollment pratices they were doing. All you have to do is go to google and search lawsuits or any other topic against University of Phoenix. Also, the reports state that there are VERY few people who graduate from Axia College...
Now for me. I am currently enrolled in UoP Axia college and trying to get out as fast as possible. In July, the academic year ended and I had to redo my financial aid forms. I faxed and emailed all the documents needed to the complete my financial aid stuff and I was "cleared" the start my next classes. About 3 week into the classes my (so-called) Financial advisor emails me and tells me that there was a problem with my verification forms and that I owe over 2000$ for the classes.
I have been sending in the stuff they need since then and every time they tell me something else is wrong with the documents. This time they pulled a new one and said that they cannot open a " .tif " file, which is what I sent most of my documents in as before, and they accepted them without a problem.
I found out that it may take a few weeks before my financial aid is actually cleared. So my question is... How can I be "financially cleared" without my financial aid being actually cleared by the govt? Answer...SCAM!! I am not alone in this financial aid scam, I have read a RipOffReports that states the same EXACT thing.
Also, they will make you take breaks because of problems with teachers etc...only to realize that they are pushing your graduation date back by weeks at a time. The "people' that are assigned to help you seem to know little to nothing about the questions you ask them and they will constantly avoid the important questions you have about the school (I.E. important document questions). And they will give you the "run-a-round", so becareful.
For people whom are wondering whether they should quit Axia College or not here is what you should do in my oppinion and please take it to heart...GET OUT NOW...DONT listen to them because they only want your money...Research different colleges and get ALL the facts first...and Transfer to a "honest" "accredited" college.
Lastly, If anyone is looking to file yet another lawsuit against the school please contant me, I will be more than happy to jump on the bandwagon.
