University of Phoenix — grant disburstment issues
Started this college on Jan 24 2o11 with the hopes and expectations i was doing something positive for myself in going back to school and re educate myself in another profession and career and the degree that was for my own achievement and satisfaction. After many years of starts and stops and promises i made the choice and went with phoenix college and the nightmare i encountered has got me in a mess i never thought i would ever be in. Story starts like this, started school in Jan it took the school over 90 days in process to send my grant disbursement but the grant check never touch my mail box, as time goes on i find out my check was sent to some unknown address and was cashed a classic case of mail fraud and identity fraud and check forgery, now as the college tracks down the check that was forged i had to prove i wasn't involved with there process, police report notifying the postal inspector you name it, now as this goes on for more protection for my self and identity i contact outer agencies like the national check fraud center and others as this goes on for further investigation, now i am going to school on zero income and phoenix polices are a complete mess, its bad enough to be in this mess but the colleges position of what there telling me is they have 120 days which puts my time frame almost a whole semester through school specially after they got there money first and from the lender that puts my credibility on the spot. Being in good faith and respect for education i pass off the leave of absence and continue school yet trying to not think about it yet each week goes by like, hey we got your money you wait when we feel like paying you ! the counselors, financial aid and the whole process is telling me what i don't want to hear until i say lawsuit or IL be seeing you in person, so as my tolerance and patients wear thin i am coming up to my second disbursement and half way through the semester. I feel like i was used even when it wasnt there fault with processing my funds for school and the process got from the college just shows there stance on my worth as a student with processing a turn around check as another disbursements comes again in other words they owe me big time. So i wait a few more weeks with academic affairs compliant and the inspector general of education filing and the state board of Arizona of education board compliant process and all they have to do is send me another check. What a mess, but as i research in depth about this college which has several lawsuits and a class action against them i am starting to wonder how can these college mills stay open!
