Victory University Crichton College Fraudulent "Christian" university here to steal your money and ignore your education Memphis Tennessee
I began Victory University in 2010 with high hopes. The entrance counselor was awesome and I was able to enroll very quickly. They gave me an estimate of how long I should expect to be in school if I followed their schedule and what it would cost me. My degree was supposed to be complete in 2.5 years at a cost of approx $30,000 including all books and fees. I am now 3 years into my degree, taking more classes than the schedule they set and am $40,000 in debt.
Their initial report is full of lies and misleading information that I can see clearly as an experienced student and was unable to understand as a new college student. Every single time financial aid stipends come due I have to fight and fight and FIGHT to get my stipend. The business office ignores my calls, sends me to voicemail, doesn't respond at all to my emails and just flat ignores me. And one point I asked for a ledger of my costs and the business office manager literally refused and then took several weeks and many many angry calls from me to get what I needed.
When I went down to pick it up, it wasn't even what I asked for. Several times it has taken my literally months to get the financial aid stipend that they are required by law to get to me in 3 weeks. I have asked for help in transferring credits from other colleges in to Victory and have literally been ignored by my assigned counselor, the registrar, the financial aid department and the business department for months. I dread the fact that I have to continue to go to my online classes, but at this point I am so far in that I might as well spend the next year completing my degree.
I can tell you that this 3 years has been hellacious and the experience anything but Christian. They hide behind this banner to prevent people from asking questions. It is sickening, and there is something very very wrong at this university.
I am a working professional. I want to share my story so that other professionals looking to earn a degree to advance their career don't get sucked up into this lie of an institution. Not only have I learned next to nothing to help me professionally, but I have wasted years and over $40,000. Please, please, please; I beg you to think twice before joining this university. I would give anything to go back in time and choose a different school. My poor choice will effect me for years and years to come both professionally and financially. Please don't make the same mistake.
