June 5, I sent an e-mail to their financial aid department, asking when I might expect to receive my share of the $6,047 they had received from DOE for me. My courses cost a total of $3,000, so I should have had over $3,000 coming to me. June 18, I received a check in the amount of $1,022. I sent another e-mail, asking about the remaining $2,000+ I had been expecting.
I explained that I was counting on that money, to pay for rent, electricity, internet connection, etc., and a couple of days later, I
received an e-mail informing me that because I had dropped one of my classes during the first week, replacing it with another course which was to begin the next month,(in June), I waould have to wait until the second week of July, to get my money. My landlady was not at all happy with the bad news, but she trusted me, like I trusted APU.
Today is July 20, and still no check. My landlady could not afford to pay her mortgage with a free-loader for a tennant, so I had to move in with my brother and his family. If I had only known how dearly it would cost me, I would never have enrolled at this internet scam site, cleverly disguised as a university. I dropped all of my classes yesterday, only 9 days from the end of the semester. After losing my home and internet connection, (and a whole lot more than just that!) I had been going to the local Starbuck's, to use their free wifi connection, to do my school work.
The last straw came yesyerday, Friday, July 19, 2012. I received an e-mail telling me that I could expect their financial aid department to finish calculating my financial aid disbursement within the next 44 days!! At the end of the message was the remark: "Have a great weekend!!" Immediately, I dropped all classes for this semester and the next. Screw those ripoff scam artist frauds at American Public University, and the donkeys their mothers rode in on!!!
