Bradford School of Business Complaint - Schools Taking Advantage Of Students

Review by mamo on 2008-09-08
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- My daughter enrolled in the Bradford School of Business. The cost for 18 months was $25000.00. Before enrolling I spoke to the financial aid office and told them I could not afford to send my daughter there without financial aid and or student loans. They told me that all I would need to pay was $1000.00 dollars and that they would get her financial aid and student loans to pay for the rest, so she enrolled and paid the $1000.00 the school did get her financial aid and student loans. She was there about 3 months in the Vet Tech program, she was having a hard time and asked for help, which she never got they would tell her to be somewhere at a certain time and no one would show up. She complained and still no help. 3 months later the school dropped her because of grades.

Now I am receiving bills that she owes $1625.00 dollars. I questioned why, the financial director was not able to explain why so that I could understand the only thing I got out of it was that she was dropped before they received all of their money from the aid and loans and said if she does not pay it will go on her credit report.

I am a single parent trying to send all three of my kids to college. My daughter is now working for a vet clinic learning to do everything and is also enrolled in another school online and is doing well. I just think it is wrong what Bradford is doing and I'm sure I am not the first.

I guess they make more money by dropping kids instead of helping them, I just wanted other parents and students to be aware and don't let this happen to them, I am paying this to keep her credit in good standing because she is too young to have bad credit.

most student loans i have seen, need the student to make a certain gpa. if not they can be dropped. even though she was dropped, you will still be liable for the loan payout.
