Complaint / review text:
I started college in December of 2012 and when I first contacted the student advisor, everything sounded good "although It seemed like it took forever". So I get into the first week of my classes and was passing with a B. For the next 4 classes, I received all passing grades. I received my financial aid in March which I might add I was promised in February but anyways I did receive it. So I get started into my second classes, the first one being "Computer Literacy". Now I have to add that yes I still was learning on my computer but I am by far not stupid with one.
Everything I tried with this instructor was not good enough. I tried E-mailing the instructor and got nowhere. So instead of just not doing the papers, I did them to the best of my ability. Needless to say, she failed me when I contacted her about this. I was told "I don't know what you are talking about. I was not your teacher." What kind of crap is that. So I questioned this school and as time has progressed, my situation has only gotten worse. I failed a second class "which I worked my off for". So okay, I call the Financial Aid lady and she tells me, "Well, your pay for September you won't get but once you complete the class you are currently in, you will receive your pay about October 22nd."
So I get off the phone with her and 2 hours later, I receive another call from my now new advisor and she informs me, "No, you won't receive any money until February of next year, " once I complete another 4 classes. Something is wrong with this and when I contacted a few people on this "As in the University Of Michigan" I was told that no this was not right and that I needed to transfer into another college. I am very upset and very angry with the fact that this college has no support for their students and that they play with your money and find ways of putting into their pockets versus the students' needs. If I had to describe this college in two words, it would be RIP OFF. Please if you are looking for an Online College, do not come to Ashford University.
