I attended the Westwood College online.  At the time I was a single parent of two kids and had received a pell grant to attend.  I thought this would be a good opportunity for me at the time.

So I called and did all my admission process over the phone.  I didn't know that my pell grant would not be enough until most of the admission process was over.  Then they suggested that I take out a Sallie Mae Loan.  All the college was paid in full before I even started the program. 

Well I had take about 4 or more classes when I didn't pass my English class and I was contacted by the school that they had withdrawn  me from the school.  If I wanted to continue I would have to take the Class over and pay for it myself.  At that time I was unable to pay for me too take the class again.  That was the last time that I was contacted from the college. 

Recently I was contacted by TG a debt collection agency for my Student Loan.  This company said I still owe the loan taken out from Sallie Mae.  They put a hold on my Federal Income Taxes.  They had taken all my money from this years taxes.   They are going to take tax money until all is paid in full. 

I called Westwood to get my records.  I had to talk to several people to get my records.  When I received them something did not add up of the total costs and what money was used.  My pell grant should of paid for the classes that had been taken. The money of the loan was never used.   I don't fell that I still owe them for services that I never received.

Westwood Shell Game

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


This is the way this college works. They are more interested in filling their pockets with your money than they are with your success. However, because of the high price this college (I use that term loosely) I doubt the Pell Grants alone would have paid for your education (once again, term used loosely). If the documents they sent you don't add up, it is because the Financial Departments at Westwood more than likely do that on purpose to confuse you. They did the same thing to me. Numbers did not add up. TG is part of Sallie Mae. Sallie Mae has several collection agencies who work for them and they love to shuffle the loans around from one to another. Either way, if you signed a FASFA, you are responsible for those loans although you did not get the education you paid for. The way the laws are now, you have no recourse. You are stuck with repaying the loans you took out and with nothing to show for it.

You are not alone however. To date, I have counted over 978 complaints on the web regarding the fraudulent practice Westwood partakes in. They are currently being sued by the AG in Illinois, paid out $4.5 Million to the State of Colorado in fines and fees all because this college is greedy and run by corrupt people. Westwood will have nothing to do with you once they get your money. They stated that fact to me in my most recent conversation with a representative. You already paid us, we cannot help you anymore. I wish you and everyone else who is stuck with the outrageous loans for an undervalued education or graduated with a degree that is absolutely worthless. You can visit my site westwoodisawful.com to see what everyone else is posting, videos on how the Westwood scam works, and ideas on how to fight back.

Visit other complaint boards like this one, post college reviews and write what your experience was. You may be suffering from the effects of attending this joke of a college but if we can prevent just one or more persons from attending, we are hitting them where it hurts, the wallet and will be preventing other from the same fate as we are.

Good luck and keep us updated.
