Soaking students and withdrawing from for-profit schools

November 17, 2009 By: Paul Category: Uncategorized Comments Off on Soaking students and withdrawing from for-profit schools

+ Courthouse News Service has this gem of a report concerning the current class action lawsuit against Alta Colleges.

+ Here’s some extremely valuable information about withdrawing from college, especially expensive for-profits.

…Deanne Loonin, an attorney with the National Consumer Law Center, said that, by law, for-profit schools must allow you to withdraw if you ask.

The law center advises attorneys who work with low- to mid-income clients and has issued reports on both proprietary schools and student borrowers. Students’ loans should be canceled if they didn’t attend classes, Loonin said. Depending on the policies of the school and state law, though, students may be responsible for some or all of their loan if they withdraw too late, she said…

Great advice for trapped students.

Thanks for dropping by!  Please excuse the mess as this site is a work in progress.

I intend to write about the numerous regionally accredited, online/distance college degree programs that receive very little exposure.  Why?  Because attending college, even online, requires a considerable amount of time and money.  Information is power – the more you have, the better off you are. 

Please stay tuned as more information and posts are on the way.
