Living Arts College School of Communication Arts, Digital Circus Rip off, lied about credit transferring and school accreditation Raleigh, North Carolina

*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Truthful rebuttal

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

They will tell you anything to get you to enroll. They told BOTH my mother and myself that my credits earned here would transfer to a four year University, which was the ONLY reason I went to the school at all. Only later did I find out that not even a community college will accept their credits, much less a credible 4 year University (inside or outside of the state, NO ONE will take your credits). I ABSOLUTELY WASTED 40,000 dollars attending this school.  I would have NEVER attended if I was told the truth about my credit hours not being accredited and not being able to transfer.
The classes were absolutely useless and the staff turnover rate is awful! I am FURIOUS that I was straight up LIED to about my credits and education. The same company/owner has done this before...

Also, here's a blog entry

I'm sure if someone tried to investigate their tactics on how they attempt to get ANYONE to enroll for a absolutely USELESS piece of paper and how they lie about their accreditation and credits someone could probably build a good case. You will not get a job by "graduating" from here, you will get lots of debt and nothing for it. Absolutely fraudulent.
