RUN RUN RUN AWAY from this college!!! No matter what they promise you. They are NOT NOT NOT Military friendly either!
I enrolled in Westwood College a couple years ago because they assured me that they would take my military credits; and that my GI Bill would cover the cost of their college. NEITHER of those statements were true.
I now owe the Federal Government (student loans) almost $21,000! That is in addition to the almost $1000 a month (in GI Bill money) I paid to Westwood for the first year I was enrolled in their program. When I questioned the Financial Officer about this - "That I would run out of GI Bill money about year 2 and that this entire program would cost me $60,000+; how that was ridiculous". Her response to me was these exact words: "If we told prospective students that they could potentially be $60,000 in debt after they were done with a 3 year program, no one would join the college".
In addition, to the now and then financial burden that Westwood has placed on me (a single mom by the way); they also did not accept any of my military credits. I came into Westwood College with an AA from the University of Maryland and I was told that they would not transfer because of the different degree program. None of which I was told prior to enrollment. In fact they lead me to believe (prior to signing up) that I would not have to complete my full 3 years of a program for a degree because I had my Associates.
I have nothing to show for my year of full time online school with this college except high debt. I attempted to enroll with just a community college here in Texas and was told that they do not accept Westwood credits at their college (Tarrant County College) or at the University (University of North Texas); both of which I was attempting to finish a Bachelors with. So, none of the 64 credits that I earned during my year with Westwood are able to be credited. Westwood claims to be "Nationally Credited". ??? I don't think so!
I plan on filing a formal complaint in addition to sending that complaint to St Louis to the GI BIll folks who need to know that a degree is not what us Veteran's are going to receive!
