Complaint: My name is ***** and I was attending Carrington College since December, I was a B student with perfect attendance for all but 1 month and I was working at the school as part of the work study program, and about 2 month ago I reported my instructor for inappropriate sexual contact and discrimination. I gave the names of several witnesses. Shortly after the administration began attacking every move I make. Then I caught on camera the Dean and another instructor in the parking lot aiming rifles at the school. So I reported that also and I was suspended the next day because they said that I had violated the code of conduct and that it would take 30 days to investigate. i asked what I had done and was told that they don't have any info yet.While I was suspended I was to have no contact with the school or any of its students. Shortly a friend from school called me to ask what happend to me and I told her I was suspended, This same person called me later and she told me that she had mentioned it to another student and she was pulled aside by the instructor that I had reported and she was told that if she helped me in any way that she would suffer the consequences.3 weeks after I was suspended, and after I had called to main office close to a dozen times to find out what I was accused of, I was told that I was being accused of sexually harassing students, I denied these accusations. But today I received an email with letters attached saying that I am expelled and that they found no grounds for my claims against the instructor.So now I'm unemployed and stuck with $15,000 in student loans and nothing to show for it. I need your help.
Desired Settlement: I would like to have my loans refunded because I received nothing for my money, I can't get a job without my certificate and the credits do not transfer.
