In 2006 I attended CTU Online, seeking a B.S. in software engineering.  In November of that year I was academically dismissed due to poor progress.  An out-of-pocket tuition debt was incurred by my dismissal, which I paid in full in early 2007.  When I later applied to another university in my hometown, CTU Online released my transcripts to that university.

In May of this year I was contacted by a collection agency that identified itself as calling on behalf of CTU Online.  It said it was trying to collect a debt of approximately five thousand dollars that I allegedly owed to CTU.  Not having attended CTU since Fall of 2006, I challenged this debt and retained an attorney at my present school.  The attorney contacted the collection agency with an order to turn over all evidence of the debt that I owed.  The collection agency never replied.  The attorney then recommended that I contact a credit agency such as Trans Union to see if the debt was recorded on my credit report, and I found that it was.  The attorney contacted Trans Union, challenging the debt.  In July I received a letter from Trans Union saying that the claim had been deleted from my credit report.

This was the consequence for my having attended CTU Online.  I hope this helps if you are thinking about attending this online college.
