Additional Notes

Complaint: I was a student at MCC between 2008 and 2009 I was there to receive a ******* ********* ****** and when I started I informed the guidance counselor that I was on disability for migraines with syncope and a protein S and deficiency which is a blood clotting problem it doesn't let my blood thin and can cause pulmonary embolism which i have had many times before they told me that was fine i started in August of 2008 and that November I had to have surgery and I knew I was going to be out it was told to me that in order to come back or keep my spot, I had to take a leave of absence. The leave of absence was a 3 month leave so when I finally came back in January 2009 i started to take the classes that I had missed. I was doing fine until probably April 2009 I started to miss classes due to my disability I informed my instructors and also **** ******** along with an counselor who was monitoring my progress since I returned to school. When i started to get ill and having worse head aches I was again missing class . They had responded positively and told me that I was ok and they also let me continue to make up test assignments that I had missed. I then proceeded to come to school and miss school and i constantly kept them update. So in April I was dropped because of my attendance knowing my disability And speaking about it they agreed to work with me and they didnt do that. I was dropped for health reasons and they still charged me for the months left to graduate.I shouldn't have to pay for something that I didn't get. especially when they promised to work with me .I am finding it hard to enroll in any other schools due to bill from Milwaukee career college.

Desired Settlement: I want to be able to attend again to get my certificate since they have been paid my financial aid .

Business Response:

Milwaukee Career College wishes to address the complaint ******* ******* submitted to the Better Business Bureau on October 31, 2012.


******* ******* first attended Milwaukee Career College August 25, 2008 in pursuit of a ******* ********* *******.  However, due to serious health issues ******* missed class regularly. By December 03, 2008, she had missed 86 hours (12%) of the total class hours required to complete the ******* ********* Program and therefore was sent a written notification that she was on attendance probation and her continued absenteeism might result in dismissal from the ******* ********* Program if she missed 108 hours absent (15%).  (Per the Milwaukee Career College catalog, absent time is defined as, and includes, time missed due to late arrivals, early departures, and any other absences from class sessions or scheduled activities).  So, rather than miss more time, ******* submitted a request to the Director of Education to take a leave of absence on December 03, 2008 with a return date set for February 23, 2009, which she said would give her time she needed to recover from her surgery.  This request for a leave of absence was approved.


******* returned to school February 23, 2009, but due to her unresolved health issues, continued to miss class regularly and therefore was dropped from the program on April 22, 2009 because she had missed 108 hours (15%) of the total class hours required to complete the ******* ********* Program.


Looking to return to Milwaukee Career College, ******* re-entered the program on August 11, 2009Milwaukee Career College agreed to work with her in regards to her existing tuition costs owed to the school, crediting her account for the amount of all funds received prior, and applying those funds towards her new enrollment.  However, this agreement was contingent upon the student starting the program over due to her absenteeism, which caused her to get dropped April 22, 2009.


******* agreed to this enrollment agreement and started classes from the beginning August 17, 2009, in pursuit of a ******* ********* *******.  On December 09, 2009, ******* received a written notice that she was on attendance probation due to the fact that she had missed 88.45 hours (12%) of the classes required to complete the ******* ********* Program.  This letter also stated that if ******* missed 108 hours (15%) she would be dropped from the program.  On January 05, 2010 ******* received another written notice stating that she had missed 95.57 hours (13%) of the classes required to complete the ******* ********* Program and if her absenteeism continued and she missed 108 hours (15%), she would be dropped from the program.  Due to health concerns, ******* submitted a request to the Director of Education to take a leave of absence immediately with a return date set for March 29, 2012.  This request for a leave of absence was approved.


******* returned to school March 29, 2010, but continued to miss class regularly and therefore was dropped from the program on April 8, 2010 because she had missed 108 hours (15%) of the total class hours required to complete the ******* ********* Program.


Milwaukee Career College is happy to work with ******* if she wishes to return to school and this will be contingent upon her starting the ******* ********* Program from the beginning and adhering to the attendance policy as seen in the Milwaukee Career College catalog.

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. If we can agree on some kind of help with tuition in regards to them being paid for the time of me going there and they got paid even when I was not a student I shouldnt have to continue to pay over and over again. Yes they did offer to help at times but not all the time.
