the academy of healing arts las vegas failed to issue diploma and closed down las vegas Nevada
I attended academy of healing arts las vegas back in 2008. I was excited to go to school and make a difference. at the time i thought nothing of it but the financial aid guy was very pushy and said all the right things. i got my financial aid approved and had 3 pell grants added.
i attended my classes and actually passed all my classes with A's. 3 months in the school sent me to get my GED. i didnt have it when i signed up( which according to student aid its a requirement upon applying). i passed and resumed classes as usual. i finished my classes and my externship and went on to graduate in april 2009. graduation we walked and did the usual. they handed me a rolled up paper saying CONGRATS YOU DID IT! your diploma will be mailed in 3-4 weeks. ok cool there was alot of people to send them out to.
fast forward a month, still no documents. i called the school every 2 weeks for what seemed like forever. the answer from them was always....we are working on them, they are being sent out, blah blah blah. I called one day to follow up and was told the school was closed and it was now the milian institute. and they were not affilitaed with academy of healing arts they just took over the building and some teachers.
After closure the school never turned over diplomas to post secondary education. only thing they had were transcripts which are useless when trying to get certified in the medical field. from 2010 to present i have fought with the dept of education to get some kind of resolution. they are useless. was told to do the borrowers defense and its now been 1 year waiting for an answer and all i get is its being reviewed. i sent them the 35 page report i found where the school was being investigated by the dept of ed. WHILE i was attending school. they were stripped of their title 4 rights. this means they could not hand out pell grants....i got 3.
To sum it up upon closure the school owed over $2.5m to the FFLA and dept of ed. My loan servicer just keeps saying well you signed a promisary note. yea i did and i fullfilled my end of the deal. the school didnt. you were shady the whole time i was in and now im being punushed for their screw up. i suggest anyone who went to this school and had the same issues file a complait with Dept of Ed.
