I took Centura's online course for AAS degree in Paralegal Law from 2010-2012.Three months after finishing the course and receiving my degree, these scam-bags sent me a bill for $5,800 dollars.I thought it was a mistake since every semester they told me that student loans+financial aid covered everything.

Their financial aid department told me that I had a "graduation balance" because my financial aid didn't cover all of the 2nd semester.(For some reason it took them two years to discover that).So I requested a full accounting and no one in their financial aid department could explain to me exactly what I owed $5,800 for.

I had someone from the State Council For Higher Learning contact them because I was tired of the runaround with these people.They went back-and- forth with this lady for two months playing phone tag and faxing her irrelevant information.She gave up and I couldn't deal with the games anymore.So they sent my "graduation balance" to collections.

Now I am $38,000 in debt from student loans,my credit is ruined and I'm stuck with 60 non transferable credits because upon applying to a 4yr university,I was told that Centura is a non-accredited school! These scam-bags got rich off my AAS degree,& I Still have to go back to a community college and start all over again.

Do not be deceived.This school is a rip off! They will never send you a dime of your financial aid until the end of your final semester,& if you get a scholarship,they apply it to your loans. No one in their financial aid department knows how to count and I doubt they even have a calculator in there.

Someone has to be held accountable for this level of fraud,& I am pretty sure I am not the only former student that has experienced this.I am pissed off and I want my debt to be forgiven.They can have this degree back.It's not worth the paper it's printed on.

About Financial Aid

AUTHOR: Drakk - (USA)

 Hi-so what I've gathered from your complaint is that you are upset that you actually have to pay back the money you borrowed to go to school? That's how financial aid works-you know that, right? You thought it was going to be free since "your financial aid and student *loans* covered everything"? What the...?
