I emailed Mr. Ketcham back about they can terminate my education because I was fed up with the school. I never received any emails, phone calls, or letters saying I was on academic probation and all the student advisers I had, they never informed me. I'm sure it was in my student handbook, but I moved from California to Indiana and the last thing on my mind was making sure I had the handbook..I mean it's ridiculous! I asked what would happen to the remaining money that I borrowed from Sallie Mae and if it was possible for them to send that money back to Sallie Mae or send it to me so I can send it to Sallie Mae myself. I also asked about sending the books I had that were in perfect condition, and guess what?! The guy NEVER emailed me back!!!!
I was very upset after not hearing anything for a week so I called the financial aid services and the girl I spoke to told me that they weren't going to send the remaining money back to Sallie Mae or me, and when I asked what was going to happen to it she goes, "Oh, we're going to keep it." I was extremely upset and asked to speak to a manager, she transferred me to one and I left her a message saying I needed to speak to her about the remaining money on my loan. Guess what!? She never called me back! No surprise there, so I left several messages to different Financial Aid managers with no responses.
I even recently called them back after giving up for 4 months and I still have not got a return call. I've already contacted an attorney about this and I even talked to Sallie Mae, since I have fallen on a hardship and they informed me that no school is supposed to keep any remaining money if a student is no longer taking courses. So I have an appt tomorrow with a lawyer on what to do with this situation.
I WOULD NOT recommend this school to anyone at all! They are all liars, frauds, and only want to take your money! The courses are ridiculous and they did not help with getting a degree in Medical Billing/Coding. I was signed up with at least 10 classes to take and only 3 of them had anything to do with Medical Billing/Coding. The rest were about psychology, sociology and creative writing which have nothing to do with my choice of degree.
If anyone has been ripped off by this company, I would love to get a statement from you so I can let my attorney know and maybe we can find some justice this awful place they like to call a school.
