As a former part time student, I have to truly say, by the end of the semester, that I finally decided to withdraw and transfer to another school, I was fed up. They almost had me convinced to re-enroll if it wasn't for two things: the PBS special, College Inc. and they had me down to enroll full time, when I specifically told the woman part time and the fact that they knew I was unemployed. One of my biggest concerns was the ethics of some of the instructors and that there were some who were reading from a book. My last instructor and I had a disagreement with one of my grades. Well, one day, I went into the live chat archives and she was actually telling another student about our conversation, with some exaggeration to make herself look good. Everything that her and I discussed was recorded in that live chat with the other student. I guess she didn't think that I would go in; I rarely did.
I decided to enroll in an online course with a local college, here in Upstate NY, that has been around since 1865 and has a good reputation. When I gave them my CTU class schedule so that they could see how many credits would be transfered, only 6 credits could be transfered., out of 36. What a waste of time and CTU degrees are worthless here. It is better for me to attend a SUNY college. Thank God I only owe $733.00. It looks like I won't get my 6 credits transfered until I pay what I owe, but I don't care about 6 credits. I'm just glad I got out when did. I believe other students who have complaints about the school. The same type of treatment was broadcasted on PBS, concerning some of the tactics used with these online schools. People experience what they experience. I sure did. It only take one bad incident for a company to look bad. The saying goes, one bad apple spoils the whole bunch.
