ASHWORTH COLLEGE/ PCDI420 Technology Parkway Norcross, Georgia United States of America
I was looking online for online Colleges just to broaden my knowledge of different subjects. I am retired and only work 3 days a week so I decided to look into online colleges, Ashworth came up when I did the online search so I decided to e-mail them on their WEB site for information and paid $35.00 thinking it would be applied to the first payment. About a week or so later I received and pamplet describing the course and the total cost, it was a lot more than I could ever imagine for one single college course (over $700). I contacted my local community college and that very same course was $35.00 minus of course books.
Well since I did not want to continue the course and actually took the same course at my local college, thinking I never signed up for any course I did not bother to even contact them. Bear in mind, the only think that I have recieved from the institution was an information pamplet, no Syllabus, Course Requirments, not even an instructor name/contact. So I get this call about several months later telling me I have defaulted on the loan, what loan? I never received any course materal or confirmation of being enrolled. I get this call saying I owed them $700.00 for what? I didn't recieve course I didn't even talk to anyone from the college until they called me asking for the $700.00.
I find out later that even if I had completed this course it was not even accredited, nor would I been able to get a job if I had wanted one. I think that ".edu should not be allowed for this institution since it is miss leading and deceptive making people believe it is an institution of higher learning.
