I requested information about starting a business program at Devry University, got a call back from one of the advisers to schedule a tour. I went in for the meeting with the adviser and really wanted to attend the school being that I at that time held a Student appoint with the Government for a Program Support Clerk at the local military hospital.
There for I had to continually be enrolled and attending college, well I started the process to enroll in school taking the entry exams etc... I didn't do so well on the test so the adviser assigned to me suggested that I that a practice class given for free at the I-10 Devry location located in Houston TX. I took the advise and went to the class took a couple of practice test and notified my adviser. My next steps consisted of retesting and filling out my FAFSA. Everything was running smooth about a week after I took the entry test again I received my SARs report from FAFSA, I took it to my adviser she schduled an appointment with then acting Financial Aid personnel Courtney Ralls. At this meeting I was informed that I would not be able to get financial aid at that time because I had a defaulted loan and that all though I qualified in other ways that defaulted loan disqualified me. She wrote the lender account number, loan type and amount down as well as information to a Federal Consolidation Program under the William D. Ford Consolidation Board for me to contact and consolidate my loans, I did so eager to attend school and continue to keep my good Government Job. Long story short, it would take 6-9 months for me to be able to qualify for student aid because the another one of my loans defaulted after I filled out my FAFSA form again.
I kept trying even after I lost my job for not being enrolled in school. Finally after about three months of losing my job not thinking I could attend school I received a letter from Sallie Mae a lender for Devry stating welcome and thank you for choosing us as your lender... Your loans in the amount of $9000.00 were disbursed to Devry on Nov.30, 2007. OK listen I started my job Oct.1, 2007 Went through the whole denial of FAFSA up until I lost my job on May 29, 2008 that whole time the Financial Aid Lady told me I could not get the aide I received the letter from Sallie Mae in June. I have spoken to the Dean Bridgett Sellers she has the worst attitude every They told me that the funds would be returned and they have not. They also have a Devry Loan for $500.00 all of this is on my credit gaining interest and I still have not found a job. God Bless the ones his wrath is released on but I will not rest until they pay me back for all of my pain and suffering I have a 4 year old son and this can not in anyway be correct in the standards of anyone's book of law... I never got a chance to go to school and those same fraud employees of Devry won't even that authority to fix this scandal this is pure Fraud!!!
