Additional Notes

Complaint: I was attending Anthem College, straight A student, with full intention of completeing my course when the director of the school brought everyone into a room and told us the school was shutting down. They explained that the college had been bought by another company and they decided they were not going to keep the specific school I was attending open. They then proceeded to talk with two other colleges to help us in a transfer process to finish our education elsewhere. They brought in **** *** ****** ** ******* to even come in and talk to us about their school. I then proceeded to apply to **** *** and work on my transfer process. I was told my credits would not transfer and I would have to start my education over. Inside of my Financial Aid contract it states the loans will be discharged in the event the school closes. I highlighted and proceeded to transfer as much as possible to the other school. They have not sent my transcripts to the new school and they have not sent my financial aid to the new school. Now I get a letter in the mail stating they are kicking me out of the program for attendance when I was told to work on transferring because the school was shutting down. Today I got a letter about filling out financial aid exit form. I am not signing that. I need my loan discharged and/or at bare minimum trasnferred to the new school. I did not quit. I was told the school was shutting down! Now that I have already been enrolled into **** *** they are saying someone may be buying the school and keeping it open. I however cannot even go back to the school if I wanted to because they withrdrawn me from the program already in an attempt to lie and say I wasn't transferring due to school closing, they are trying to say i was withdrawn for attendance. I just simply want my money back. If they are going to try and itemize what I owe I want to make note that I never received my massage table and I did not receive a book for the first class I was in. Not to mention the online course I learned NOTHING in because the website never even worked. I googled all my answers to pass that class. That is not acceptable. I think their accreditation should be reviewed, the school seems like a scam. The first teacher I had, just sat at his desk and he would ask other students to show me how to give a massage and they said he never taught them either... they were making it up on their own. Not acceptable. Unprofressional. I am seeking assistance to discharge my loan from Anthem College. Thank you!

Desired Settlement: I would like my loan through Anthem College refunded. At bare minimum I would like someone to adjust it somehow to work with **** *** ****** ** ******* as I was promised. They even mentioned scholarships to make up the difference for what we had gone through, but I have not been given any of that either. I would also like someone to review their accreditation to make sure they are even meeting the minimum standard

Additional Notes

Complaint: I was ripped off by Anthem College in 2010. I was informed that the Veterinary Technician program that was brand new at the school was accredited. Later after enrolling and attending classes my class mates and I were informed that we had been misled. The college as a whole was accredited but the program itself was not. Later finding out that the entire High Tech Institute was not at all accredited. So we all decided to leave and further our education at a school the had the proper accreditation for the program that we were interested in. Now my credit score is all jacked up because its saying I owe them $4000+. I feel that I should not have to pay that because I was misled, lied to, scammed, etc. I would have never attended that school if I was not informed that it was accredited by the representatives that enrolled me. I have since tried to further my education but these loans have made it very difficult. I really hate that this has happened to me and many others who have falling into the Anthem College fraud!

Desired Settlement: I would like for them to take off the loans so that I can go back to school and to correct my credit. I do not feel like I should have to pay and have my life ruined for fraud on their behalf.
