A year and a half ago I signed on with The College Network to the tune of $6000 +. I am paying monthly to Southeast Credit Union who deducts the payment directly from my checking account. Trouble is I am not using The College Network Curriculum., I have taken all my courses through Regis University. I do not need half of what The College Network said I do! I want my money back ASAP! Every cent including the down payment. I am completing my BSN in two weeks and have not once used anything from The College Network. Give me my money back PLEASE!...

The College Network - Indiana - Finance

Lets add insult to injury. Aside from their deceptive educational practices. The credit union that claims to be independent of the college network isn't. It seems that if you are a day late paying your bill the college network locks you out of your classes. Yet the credit union claims they paid the college network in full. So by extension it shouldn't matter if I pay the credit union or not my education was theoretically paid in full. Why is the school involved in enforcing payment to the credit union. However when you try to get TCN to refund the money or pay back the credit union they...

Everyone MUST READ THIS POSTING!!! ...It is the absolute truth, A year into their program I realized it was BULLSHIT-(no academic support.. no wonder they never advertise their completion rates!!!)

Buyer Beware!!!
The recruiter is smooth talker. They will meet you in a pubic place or your house promising you LVN-RN BSN program in 18-24 mos. Which is not true, they leave out it depends on where you are with prerequisites. The program is actually 4-5 years and depending on how dedicated and studious you are. Plus you are paying a publishing house to test out of classes and then apply to Indiana State University. Which may or may not accept you. Only to find yourself paying a hefty amount of money for a publishing house that promises you a degree. The College Network, completely represents...

The College Network - New York - NO DEGREE, Paying for Nothing

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
In the year 2007, I had enrolled in their so called wonderful program. They told me they were working with the company I work for to have them pay for tuition. I received the so called modules. Open them up and started to work on the first one. Not understanding some. I called the number and emailed to get some assistance. To this day still have not received any help. Here I am paying 20, 000 for modules that sit still wrapped in plastic except for one. What can I do, obviously this program is not working. I think they should offer the money back to all of use students but good luck with that....

I have been a LVN since September 2008. Shortly after graduating, I went to work with a hospital that was doing a bridge program with a local college. I was informed that the credits for the prerequisites were accepted through TCN. After thinking about it, I, too, called to cancel the courses and not long after this, I moved. I then was contacted about a pkg that was left at my last address. It was 7 modules. I immediately called and asked if I cancelled the program, why did i get these modules. I was informed that there was no docutmentation that I called and that NOW, it had been to long to do...

Signed into this in 2006 to study LVN to RN. Paid for a year or so (can't remember exact amount of time). Became ill and had to have surgery. Am no longer able to work as a nurse so RN is not something I wish to pursue. Also realized it is another of those scams so decided to ignore it. Have not paid since 2007. Just recieved a call from someone claiming to be from the "Dept. of Justice" and that a subpeona is being sent out this Monday (today is Friday). Caller ID says out of area. After speaking to the guy who says the attorney working my case is working late and will call me in...

I made it clear throughout my meeting with the rep who wrote my contract that I DID NOT want a Bachelor's, only an AS and he wrote it for the BS anyways. I should have read it more carefully, but I cancelled less than an hour later to be rewritten for the AS when I came back from Ohio as I was leaving that night. He assured me he would hold it but LIED. I'm being harassed for payment of a BS I don't want and they won't cancel. My phone calls are proof I cancelled....

I believe trully that the TCN is a big scam. I graduated from nursing school in 11/5/08 and because I was so interested in furthering my career to get my RN BSN that I was actually excited about the program. When the advisor came to speak to my cousin and I, he painted the pretty picture. He explained to us what classes we needed to complete and what needed to be done and how much it would cost us through TCN and then the cost through Indiana University. He never explained to us that we need to find a site and a proctor, that the modules were completly different from the test and that there is a...

In May of 2008 I allowed an "advisor" from The College Network to come into my home and give me his spill on all the great advantages of obtaining my RN license online from TCN. I should have been smart and done my research on this company. I must say, they employ some GREAT SALESMEN. This man had me convinced that this was right up my alley as I have always been an independent studier. After a couple of months I realized what a mess I had gotten myself into. I have only received one module. It has been three years and i have not used any more of their study materials or online modules....

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 4 votes
I signed up 15 months ago and have been satisfied so far-have taken and passed 4 exams with TCN material. My complaint is twofold-both having to do with money.
First, TCN has been paid in full for my materials and tests. I got my University to give me credit for a course that TCN didn't think I'd get, so they agree they owe me a refund of $730. I have been trying to get the money since January. In April they fianlly sent me a document in writing agreeing that they owe me, and still no money-it is now June. Worse yet when I tried to call them at 6:23 pm EST they had a recording that...

The College Network Reps definitely need to know the rules and regulations of TNC. My wife was told that she could get out of her classes if she decided to take her first class and she couldn't do it. The rep said it would be "no problem". Well, she decided that she would feel more comfortable in an actual classroom setting so we called to cancel. "Well, there is a 4 class minimum that you have to take." the rep told us. He then gave us a 1-800 number to call. The academic advisers informed us that we had to pay back the entire loan! Who is lying to us???? We have been told...

The College Network has charged my credit card for a program I never even utilized. I was unable to stop the monthly charges and ended up paying thousands of dollars over the past 5 years. When I tried to cancel the program 3 years ago the representative offered no resolution. I was also shipped several books that look like downloaded copies of pages from Wikepedia. This ad continues to run in some nursing journals. Why? I would like to talk to one person who completed the course and was actually awarded a BSN. My credit is now ruined and even though I've nearly paid off the credit card the...

You are right about the fast talking salesman, and lies, and rude and ruthless customer assistance. I signed up with The College Network in March. They came to my home and did a pretty good job of explaining everything. The salesman told me that even though I signed up for the bsn program; I could change to the adn at any time. Ok that sounded great. I knew about the 3 day cancellation.

I got a letter from the College Network a little while later stating that my gpa was not high enough to get into Indiana and that I would have to pay more money for another course, and I would have...
