Westwood college screwed me!! I signed up wanting to get my BA in bus. mgmt but could not go to a traditional school and i wanted to graduate in 2 years not 4. When signing up I was told the school would be behind me 100%. If i lost my job they would help me get another they had ties with the community. If i needed rent money they could help me. I was more concerned with tutoring....I was told they had awesome tutors that could help me 24/7. Everything sounded Legit.......WRONG!!!! After 2 months at the school i noticed things and started researching the school. I called many perspective employers that would hire me with a degree all over the US.  Once i mentioned "Westwood" the conversation went south! I was told not once but in EACH call that they did not hire from Westwood that the school was not traditional and they did not believe in there teaching practices.  Well i took it to heart for then. Almost a week after i lost my job...I went to student services where they gave me 3 sheets of papers FULL of employers. After looking at these ads i noticed a similarity. After more research i found out they were ads copied directly from Craigslist!!! I stormed back into the office demanding answers, they had none for me. Furthermore they do not have ANY ties with the community it was just a ploy to lure me in!!! I went to my counselor who also had no answers for me.  Later that day i went to get tutoring for math......It was not "one on one" it was a class full of kids and 1 teacher????  by the time he got to me he breezed through me and went on to the next!! I was again peeved but knew this was the "Westwood Way"!!!  I tried contacting lawyers but I did not have $4000.00 to take on my case and now i owe the Govt $14000.00 for my 3 months in school!!  I wish i would have known about Ripoff Report before signing up for school!!  Its Ok Westwood is going down!!!

American Aribitration Association

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

Hi Rocco! I highly encourage you to file your dispute to the American Aribitration Association (AAA).  I am currenlty in the process of doing that myself and I believe it is our best bet at getting some resolution. I have spoken to a lawyer who was interested in picking up my case, but lost interest once he found out I signed an agreement to arbitration with Westwood. Chances are you signed this too (Westwood did an awesome job at covering their basis). Hope this provides some help.

Westwood College Standard Practices

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

Rocco,

Yes, people are still being scammed and lied to by this institutional degree mill. If you visit westwoodisawful.com, you can review videos of how these types of institutions are allowed to legally steal your money and get away with it. Unfortunately, I went all the way and graduated from Westwood. It wasn't until after graduation I discovered the real truth. The admissions reps will tell you everything you need to hear to get you enrolled but the college falls short on any and all promises.

Westwood's reputation is severely tarnished and with all of the law suites and payouts this college is having to make because of fraud, not a single employer will take a graduate from this college. The best thing anyone can do for now is to hit all of the college review websites and slam them, tell your story and get the word out. Once Westwood understands that people like me and you are not going to take this sitting down, they may fix their broken system but doubtful.

Westwood college is for profit, not for education, they are out to make as much money as possible and are not concerned about their students. They want your federally insured loans, grants and personal dollars and do not care what type of education or degree you get.

Sorry you discovered the real truth about Westwood so late but consider yourself lucky you got out in time.
