"The continued upheaval in the wake of Corinthian’s collapse is a long overdue reckoning for an industry that profits off of students while sticking them with a worthless degree and insurmountable debt," Senator d**k Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, said in a written statement.

Colorado Technical University is a degree mill. Please do yourself a favor a stay away from this institution. You may get a degree but trust me, employers are not stupid, no one is going to value a degree from this institution. You will be in debt for the rest of your life with nothing to show for it. Intellipath allows you to revise your grade, making it easy for anyone to earn a high grade without learning anything. Employers know this, it takes a simple Google search to see the school's reputation. Please do yourself a favor and earn a degree that will give you a return on your investment.

In my case, after being in the school for only 28 days they manage to take out several unauthorized loans on my behalf. They also changed my award letter 8 times in 28 days. After I decided to withdraw, they then held my transcripts from another university until I pay thousands of dollars ou of pocket.


Many students weren’t actually able to find well-paying work after completing their studies and job placement figures provided by the school were bogus. The Obama Administration’s new “gainful employment” rules, which require schools to show that the average student isn’t paying more than 8% of their total income in loans after graduation, would have hit the chain hard. So, in early May, the company announced that it would wind down operations at 14 Sanford-Brown campuses.

In addition, Career Education Corp (the company that owns Colorado Technical University). has either sold or is trying to sell several other career colleges it owns, including Briarcliffe College, Brooks Institute, Missouri College, and the Le Cordon Bleu Colleges of Culinary Arts. The company plans to focus on its two universities: Colorado Technical University and American InterContinental University, which enroll 75% of the chain’s students, according to PBS.

"The continued upheaval in the wake of Corinthian’s collapse is a long overdue reckoning for an industry that profits off of students while sticking them with a worthless degree and insurmountable debt," Senator d**k Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, said in a written statement.
Nationally, hundreds of thousands of students have been left with heavy debts and no degrees since two large for-profit college chains collapsed and closed their doors in the last two years. Many are appealing to a federal program that offers debt relief to students lured by false promises concerning costs and jobs. Others joined in filing a multibillion-dollar lawsuit.

In Colorado, an investigation by The Colorado Independent found that Colorado Tech has generated more complaints from veterans using GI Bill benefits than any other college in the country except for two large for-profit chains, University of Phoenix and ITT Tech.

Veterans feel ripped off by Colorado for-profit college;

According to new U.S. Department of Education data, Colorado also performs poorly in a regulation that distinguishes between affordable career education programs that lead to well-paying jobs and those that don’t base on the debt-to-income ratios of their graduates. Nationally, one-fourth of these programs did not achieve a passing grade, nearly all of them run by for-profit colleges. But in Colorado, the problem is worse. One of every three career education programs fell below a passing grade.
'Technical' Problems
While enjoying a wealth of students from around the country, Colorado Technical University has also come under nationwide scrutiny for a series of complaints, lawsuits, and fraud reports that include alleged incidents of the following:

• Refusal of access to transcripts

• Fabricated charges in excess of $4k, with no available contact for recourse or appeal.

• Deception with regard to career potentials and job placement programs.

• Circular bureaucratic transfer being used to deter students from resolving false charges.

• Students receiving poor or no customer service.

• Failed promises of guidance from â€career coachesâ€.

• Deceptive recruiting tactics, misrepresent of job placement rates and have high rates of student loan default and student withdrawal.

• Student debts being sold to multiple collection agencies.

• Abuse of US veterans and VA loan programs.

• Predatory sales practices.

AIU and CTU are brands of the Career Education Corporation, which was found by the GAO to have deceptive recruiting tactics, misrepresentation of job placement rates, and high rates of student loan default and student withdrawal.

In August 2013, Career Education Corp. reached a $10.25 million settlement with the New York Attorney General. The Attorney General’s investigation revealed misleading advertisements, including inflated job placement statistics.

Over the course of the next few years, Career Education Corporation experienced declining enrollment numbers and profits. In May 2015, it announced it was closing or selling all of its career colleges, but would continue to operate the universities.

Ask yourself, how long before Colorado Technical University is shut down as well?

".......while sticking them with a worthless degree and insurmountable debt," Senator d**k Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, said in a written statement.
