Heald CollegeHarassment

I am complaining about the harassing collection calls and threat letters in the mail. heald college has me under a written deferment stating that I do not have to pay while I am in school. I have received emails, collection calls, and threat letters every week for two and a half years, and I am getting tired of all of it. If the emails do not stop, I will write a letter to cooperate. If the collection calls do not stop, I will force my opinion. If the threat letters do not stop, I will sue you. You can try to counter sue, but own nothing, so try me!. Stop sending me threat letters, because you would not like it if I threaten you. This is an issued complaint from a current heald student who has been there for three plus years.

STOP THE HARRASING PHONE CALLS OR GET SHUT DOWN!!!11

    Heald College - Portland, OregonMoney, Lies, not transferable

    DO NOT GO HERE! They cost $4500 a month, cannot transfer to other schools (articulation report pulled), they tell you what you want to hear, NOT AMA crediable, and put charges on you that are not valid! If you have FasFA and PELL GRANT why would you be charged for (BOOKS) 747.07? UM WEIRD

      Heald CollegeFacility, Students, Courses

      I'm currently enrolled at Heald College, and I hate it. They promised a "hands on" experience, which I am not getting. They only care about the money, They don't care about there students. The teachers are rude and are always late to class. Very unprofessional as the student body goes its very diverse . I feel like my adviser coned me. Now I have this huge debt, and I'm only 18. They're the most unprofessional college. They don't even make you take the higher English and Math classes, they focus on only your major, and that whole "help getting a job after graduation" is a sham. Once your out they don't care. Going to Heald was a horrible choice. I'm paying just as much or even more than it would to cost me to go to a university, and I'm not even getting the education that I'm paying for.

          THEY JUST DISMISSED ME FROM SCHOOL!!! 2 WEEKS INTO MY FINAL QUARTER FOR MY AA DEGREE! I feel utterly blindsided and robbed. I never got a warning, never filled out a disciplinary action plan, probation, or was told anything about this!! I am in my very last quarter before I graduate AA. Today (week 3) I was on my way to class when I was called to academics to ultimately be dismissed from the school all together! WTF!! I'm shocked, confused, lost, and feel that I was robbed! Now thousands of dollars in debt racked onto my already large debt with DEPT of Ed. For this AA degree and yet I get 1 quarter away from graduating, they literally sweep the rug out from under me and cast me away. What do I do now?

          I know exactly how you feel. I filed a complaint against them, got involved in a Class Action Law suit, gave legal documents to the Attorney General, and now i have to find an arbitration attorney. I have no education, no degree, no career, no opportunities, just debt from Heald College.

        Heald College - San Josebad at reading the situation of their students

        i am in a graduating student but heald college dropped me without a good reason. at first i was fixing all the papers i needed for my extern but their adviser for this doesn't know how to read our (students) medical records she still a little notes from our physicians. after this she put me in a place to do my extern but they did not call me when to get my interview ans such.i waited for their call but nothing received. i tried calling them instead but they told me to call me back later but nothing received too. My other classmates already their interviews and they already started. i got pissed off. i got a planned that when doing my extern and going to school and have at work at the same time. i applied to another job that have grave yard. finally, they called me and on the spot they told to start already working at swing shift. for this i sacrifice my school by not attending my classes (not yet started my extern). i have many billsto pay for and im independent i dont have any family that will help me with my expenses. but this tupid and inconsiderate school dropped me without understanding my reasons. obviously they didn't experience such thing like struggling. they destroyed my school records and needed to delay my graduation. these people dont know how to listen to their students especially having a hard time struggling. student services sucks and their advisor for extern. it sucks. i recommended my friends to go here but they pissed meoff so i won't let them enter this school. inconsiderate people. how's your pocket doing huh???? i only absent for four days and you even counted the 10 days that i dont have classes even the sturdays and sundays? are we going pay for that too?huh?!!huh??!!!we are the one should dropped our classes its our money not yours... i have good grades and YOU MESSED WITH IT!!! JERKS!!!

          HealdQuality Education

          If you are looking to be an instructor bypass Heald College. They will hand you a WASC accredited college level textbook and syllabus tell you to teach college level transferable course. When the students cannot handle a typical college workload they demand that you lower the standard...the standard they provided you on the first day of the job and continue to ask you to lower the standard until what you are teaching is a high school level AP course that they are selling to unsuspecting students as a college level CSU transferable course. Meanwhile you as an instructor are on the hook for being responsible to provide a college level course while your bosses (who will not put their requests to lower the standards in writing) can blame the teacher for not teaching the Heald provided syllabus and text if they get called on it.
          If you are unethical and can sit by and watch students pay a high price for very little..Heald is for you. If you are a student you are not getting the education they have advertised or recruited you for. Save your money - go to junior college and get an education. It may take a little longer but if you ever go on to get degree you will need to retake many of your Heald classes because wisely many college have learned a Heald education isn't worth the paper your degree is printed on and therefore overall the time you spend in college will be much longer.

                You may have just been to uneducated and just plain
                Stupid to meet the minimum requirements to be a student there.
                Try learning how to spell, and use proper English. Oh nevermind, you were probably kicked out before you could take a writing class.

                Yes, Heald drops students due to attendance. It's in the student handbook, and students are told this at orientation.

                Also, you may want to pay attention to what Really? said. just sayin'
