I registered and was admitted to Columbia College MBA program, after payment of fees and registration for two Grad classes, the college sent me a note that I was no longer admitted because my BA was not good enough! This notification was sent three weeks after receiving an official admission letter from the college!

Two weeks ago, I asked them to refund my credit card for all the fees paid and they stalled and as of today, they failed to refund my tuition and fees.

This college is a disgrace and is in massive confusion. I came to this conclusion after multiple conversations with the staff and it was clear to me that the college does not have their students best interest in mind that they are engaged in discrimination and intimidation their students. They manage to waste my time and have so far showed no remorse or apologized for their actions.

Columbia College MO

AUTHOR: traska - (United States of America)

I  attend Columbia College out of MO., the online courses. I have been there  2 yrs and have  12 credits left  before graduation.   I am on a disability and only  receive a small  month  check.  I  live off my student loans and the closer I get to graduation the  more my loan is reduce, though  tuition  keeps going up.  I  went back on the financial  aid site itself and the further you  are in the education ladder the higher the loan .So why  would my getting closer to the end of graduation make a difference in how much student loan I receive. Also the book store is  a rip off .  300 dollar for 2 used books.. One I found at Amazon.com for 3. 95 cents.   It is very irritating  that  I was not told when I first started this school that student loans decrease the closer you get  to graduation.

Getting an answer from financial aid is like pulling eye teeth.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Columbia College MBA

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

Hello Tewksbury. I am the employee that handled your MBA application at Columbia College. I am no longer employed there, however I would like to say in my defense that I always had your best interest in mind. As soon as I received your entire packet I promptly completed the application and sent your information on to main campus for your final evaluation. It was then that we found out that you had received your degree from a college that was NOT ACCREDITED. Unfortunately because of that you were then denied admission. I realize you had already registered for courses, but when we allowed you to register at the Hancock Field campus, we could not have forseen that happening. I will admit, I do not understand or really know why it took so long for your reimbursal to go through, but I can assure you, before that company threw me to the curb like garbage, the students always came first for me. I am extremely upset for what they did to me, and it is very difficult for me to stick up for them when I truly hate them right now, but I can assure you that when I was there the students were WELL taken care of. With the new director there, I cannot say that will still happen. He does not care about anyone or anything. All he cares about is getting the title of director on his resume for 3 years so he can move on. The New York Campus will go down hill with that man in charge. Again, I am truly sorry for all of the confusion that was caused, but it was not my fault, I was not unethical, and I certainly NEVER once discriminated against you or intimidated you in any of the phone calls we had.
