well my experince with this college is not been great its been hell too. I wish i would of see everyone else's complaint i would't have went to this school. Well first it started with my finanical advisers i had a new one every 3 months not a joke ive only been going there for a yr so when a new one got my info i bet its all screwed up i can imagined.

well anyways it started with when they need verifcation for my finanical aid to go through so me being 21 they said that they would need my parents tax forms and info. Well do mind i don't even live with my parents any more i am dependent in my eyes but they said it went by age not if you live with them or not. well you guessed it my parents declined to help me out and provide the info because when they sent the packet out there was a paper in the packet that basically said i authrize you to check my credit so i can be approved for a loan.

Well my parents did not want to do that and she even told them this on the phone, but they still send that to her that why she didn't want to fill it out she was worried they may rip her off well, a 2 weeks down the road they said well if we dont have those papers summited you can not proceed unless you can come up with 6000 dollars up front.

I told them i dont have that so they basically said we good luck on finding a college. So i am stuck here with 10,000 dollars in debt. and a year of my life wasted and they said oh yea you have a outstanding debt of 4000 with us so we can give your credits to you that you have earned, ive read the other complaints i saw that most of the time the credits do not transfer i don't know what to do... somebody please help me. I would like to seek legal action. p.s i could go on and on but i don't have the time to do that i have to go know and find another college to go to.

Here's how it works: the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is submitted and your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is determined. This figure (which can vary based on the school you attend) determines how much aid you'll be awarded in grants (which you don't pay back), and what you can take out in loans.  Every semester the government sends a list of selected students to the school, and the school is required to gather additional information to verify what was put on the FAFSA. That's why they wanted your parents' tax forms. If you are under 25, not married, and not in the military, you are considered a dependent - regardless of whether you are "dependent" on your parents or not.

There is nothing in the verification process that requires your parents to co-sign or sign for a loan. Nothing! And they shouldn't be required to submit to a credit check either.

If the school requires a credit check as part of the verification process, they're probably up to something illegal.  Call the Department of Education for guidance on that.

As for finding another school, good luck. Everst won't release your transcript until you pay the money you owe them. And the new school will know about it because the minute you apply for financial aid your file will be flagged.  This is all regulated by the government, and not by the individual school.
