The College Network TCN The College Network Withholds Exam Fees past published 2-weeks-now taking 6 weeks Indianapolis Indiana
The College Network is a fraud and has nothing to offer anyone for continuing education. Beware!!!! They are not associated with ANY reputable college or university. Yes their literature does state this clearly. However...
One of the major selling points of The College Network is that they can expedite your educational needs by supplying accurate, current and pertinent study materials to prepare you for credit-by-examination exams for Excelsior College and other education institutions.
The College Network presents itself as a professional educational support organization by sending representatives to educational institutions like technology centers, etc, to peddle their substandard wares.
I am an LPN and hold both bachelor and masters degrees in another field. I am working on my RN and did not find out the truth about The College Network until I had to enroll directy to Excelsior College. I also found out how misleading, incomplete and insufficient the study modules are from The College Network when I took an end-of-course exam and was missing large amounts of material.
I had even called The College Network academic advisors to see if I needed to supplement my study modules with the textbooks that were listed on the Excelsior College study guides and was told "it was not necessary, no, to go to that additional expense."
I have since not used one piece of printed material from The College Network to prepare for any of the subsequent exams I have taken and so I have paid an outrageous amount of money for basically nothing which brings me to my current dilema with The College Network...the exam fees.
I guess the College Network is having cash-flow issues because the normal and advertised/printed check request period for exam fees is 2 weeks. I requested a check 12/27/13 for an exam I took 1/18/14 and still have not received the check. I had to pay the exam fee out of my pocket even though I have already paid for all of my exam fees through the loan I had to take to pay The College Network up front for all fees several years ago.
The College Network has been paid in full and now they are telling me that I have to wait 6 weeks per check for my own money. I have spoken twice with "academic advisors" and a "supervisor" who would only offer me condescendence and no assistance. They don't care. They got their money up front.
Please, please, please do not give The College Network a dime of your hard-earned money. They are the middleman that takes advantage of those that really need the guidance. Contact your educational institution directly. Good Luck.
