*Consumer Comment: The Truth about CTU Online
I hate this school! It takes advantage of the Student Loan programs and the unsuspecting adult learner that is usually in a bad place emotionally and/or finacially to lure them into the Web of deceipt! This started in 2014 for me. A sales rep called me during the day in summer of 2014. My stupidity was in giving him the time of day!
First off, they want to get to know more about you. Then when they find out you're unemployed and in financial distress, they emphasize that you can get stipends from student loans. They also don't give you time to think it over...probably because they know I'd go online and find them in the RipOff Report!
I kept enrolled from July 2014 - January 2015. I needed desperately in early January to take a break of maybe 3 - 5 weeks to get myself together. I had just filed bankruptcy and gone to court which was a very humbling experience for someone like me. My "Student Advisor" told me that I would have to start over with the class, and of course, that meant paying again, and she could not enroll me for the same class that would have started about 3 weeks after I called. So, I told her to unenroll me. Big mistake!! Or maybe not. It gets even better.
So, by the end of January, things seemed to have been going better for me. Wham! Here comes another sales "Advisor" calling me to see if I wanted to re-enroll! Of course, I did. I had already devoulged that I suffer from Anxiety and Depression and have been on meds. Heck, my doctor filled out paperwork and I even applied through CTU for a learning disability acceptance program! Now, I don't really think someone who is unemployed, gone thru bankruptcy, and on heavy duty meds should be a great candidate for getting a Master's!
So, I ended up going back, but not till April of 2015 (Scheduling conflicts by them), and I just owed them more $$$. Every class was the same as the prior classes...same presentations, same assignments, and cookie-cutter professors that gave me A's and B's when I knew I'd have gotten at best, C's, in my undergrad program. I had been through hell and I kept those papers and re-read them. The only reason they gave me good grades was due to the fact that if I couldn't keep up a B average, then I wouldn't qualify for Student Loans.
I, too, would love to file a Class Action Lawsuit against them! They hound you for money and after you withdraw...it gets worse. Much worse. I've made arrangements to pay them $54.18 bi-weekly for a total of $2,866 more that I owe. Finally...after having reported them to the BBB, I got someone who agreed to make a descent payment arrangement with me.
If anyone feels like me, the Navient people told me to file a complaint with the Attorney Generals office for my state, and to also file a complaint with this website: email@example.com. Trust me...do it! I've even given them money from my unemployment checks! Trust me...do not go to this Donald Trump Clone school.
