I came to this school to get an education. I am 55 years old and a single mom. I do not have money to throw away which is what CTU financial aid department has been doing to me. I have yet to get my diploma from my Associates degree where I graduated last April because they said I owed them for a class I had to take over.
I noticed discrepancies in my tuition and how they were paying my student loans last year. When I dropped this class I only had one more class to take. They charged me $610 for the class to take over which was fine. Well all of a sudden two months later I am seeing that I owe $810. I questioned them about it they said it was a raise in education costs which did not make sense to me. Then they told me the government would not pay for my last class and that I would have to take another class in order to get them to pay for my tuition.
So I asked a couple different financial advisors what I should do. I was told you need to take over the class with your lowest grade and that they would pay for two classes. So I did the paperwork and retook the class. Well all of a sudden I look at my balance and now I owe $3410. I questioned them again why my balance was so high. They told me financial aid did not pay for the classes because I owed a previous balance.
I feel they knew all along it was not going to pay for it and left me stuck with a balance of $3410. I have paid my $610 off that I owed for the class and more. Still I have not received my diploma. They want me to pay for that class I was misinformed about before they will give it to me. I feel this is deceptive and they lied to me. I know they cheated me out of more money on education as well. I have gone over my financial statement and see discrepancies they can not account for.
I am not the only one this is happening to. There are many students there who have dropped out or can not finish their education because of the financial aid department.! Something needs to be done.
