My enrollment advisor Zach Blair was the first person to contact me from this organization. I was intrigued that I could get an eduacation online andin my own time. So I signed up! I was enrolled as a full-time student for a year when I decided to look into how much I owed Salle Mae. I was stunded when they told me $16,000.00! The following day I did some research on my local community college. Some of the students gasp when I told them what my debt was for one year of college. At that point I made the decission to withdawl from UOP. I was trying to complete my last class before doing so and the advisors I was working with were aware of my future departure. The day before I was scheduled to take my final exam UOP dropped me from the class. The result is me owing UOP over $1,000.00. I asked for a detailed report on what I was paying for many times but was never given anything. I told my finance counslor Delaina Dowdy that I would have to make payments monthy. She said that was fine but in three months if the account was not paid off I would be sent to collections. I found that hard to believe due to the fact that my account would not be deliguent, which is the usual reason people get sent to collections. Here I am two months later still paying for what-ever it is I am paying for. I have enrolled in a traditional college and sent my official UOP transcripts to them. Nearly none of my UOP classes transfered! So great I am out $16,000.00 and 30 credit hours of school. My current college is willing to review my classes to see if they cn get the school board to approve them, they said for me to bring in my syllabus' from the classes I attend at UOP. I have email and called for the information and was told there was no way for me to get the information. If you ask me, what type of higher education facility does not keep that kind of information for in students records or even teacher/class records.

To chalk-it-up UOP recrutes and practices in an unethincal manner. I was never told how much classes were going to cost. I was even told the classes were alot less than traditional colleges because their focus was to help working class people.I never got a chance to pick my classes or my schedule.I would take final exam for one class and the next day start another. And yes the enrollment advisors do make commision! I heard it from the horses mouth!!

I hope something can be done about this. I hate knowing there are others that will get scammed! Maybe somebody will read our complaints that has knowledge of education laws.
