After I had numerous disputes and disagreements with the Westwood College staff about the quality of the educational program and professors at Westwood College I demanded an accounting from the college regarding my son's class schedule. They had him mattending one class but charging him for the entire semester's tuition. They told me that there was nothin they could do because my son had transfered numerous courses from Miami-dade College. [By the way, they'll accept college credits from other educational institutions but when my son transferred to the University of Central Florida, UCF would not give him credit for one single class he took at Westwood College - UCF doesn't even recognize Westwood College or their curriculum!]My son had already completed his Associate's degree fom one of the finest educational institutions in the U.S., Miami-Dade College. To make a long story short, during my son's last semester at Westwood College, the college could only sign him up for one class (although they demanded payment for full tuition) and when I objected, the college staff decided to terminate his enrollmen, although I was given assurances by the Director that this would not happen. After his dismissal, the college staff told him that he was obligated to participate in an "exit interview" during which time they gave him numeorus forms to sign, one of which was a "promissory note". That is fraud! There is no other way to describe the deliberate deception on the part of the staff. Some people would argue that my son should have read every single document that he signed at the exit interview, but to be honest, how many young men and women after learning of their termination from a school program (through no fault of his own) would read multiple forms during an exit interview when the staff told them that the documents he was signing were necessary in order for him to get his transcripts.

VICTIMS OF WESTWOOD COLLEGE URGED TO FILE COMPLAINTS

AUTHOR: Rey - (U.S.A.)

One of the collection companies for Westwood College is General Revenue Corporation. Some of its employees have been calling and harrassing my son relentlessly. Although he has asked them for proof of the debt, they refuse to give him aything in writing.

After speaking with some of GRC's employees, I, too, requested proof of my son's debt, yet GRC refuses to provide such proof. They refuse to investigate our claims, although we are well documented.

WARNING TO ALL WHO ARE BEING HARRASSED BY WESTWOOD COLLEGE'S DEBT COLLECTORS -

Don't speak with them or give them an explanation, other than to tell them to send you a written demand for payment and/or proof of the debt. Tell them that until such time as they (or Westwood College) provides proof of the debt, you won't speak to them or respond to their demands. You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Education. I would urge you to contact your state consumer services office or attorney general and ask them to investigate Westwood College's practices.
