Sign Petition

Tell us your Ashford University Stories

345 Signatures Goal: 250

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Greetings, You are being asked to sign this petition if you are a former student of Ashford University, Clinton, IA (Online University) and you end up owing the company, and you believe they abused their powers, and perhaps misled you.

I am in the process of filing a Class Action Lawsuit against Ashford University, in which I am the lead plaintiff; however, I need your support.

Before any of us can secure justice against this monster corporation we must come together and bombard the court systems with complaints.

Theoretically speaking in a perfect world we could file individual lawsuits, most likely risking the courts ruling in favor of the University.

But if we congregate together as one – the judicial systems will really see there’s an issue that need to addressed. Quickly!

As a group we are seeking restitution for damages, and release of liabilities in particular those caused by financial aid negligence on the universities part.

Right now more than ever is the best time to initiate this movement as the U.S. Federal Government is currently investigating Ashford, and they were just cited by the Department of Education for negligently receiving federal funding.

This issue has been worrying you, and if you are anything like me, it has probably kept you up plenty of nights.

There is recourse – you just have to take action.

I am looking forward to your support

Former Students of Ashford University,

Lead Plaintiff – US Class Action Suit

    They took me to the cleaners as well. It started with misinformation about break time frames. I was on an approved break, (so I thought), to return only to find out I had been dropped from the school because my counselor made a mistake with the time frame of what my return date should of been. So it appeared as if I was A no show, and on an unapproved break exceeding alloted time frames. That's when the trouble started. I owed 2300 for that class and if I didn't pay it my financial aid was over. I couldn't pay the 2300, so it then just turned into a complete nightmare. I've heard this same story from several others. Please help 60k in debt!!

    When I became a student at this school the way they marketed me becoming a student was full of misguided information. Ultimately I was told that I shouldn't worry about financial aide because I would have enough to finish my bachelors. Then my last year I had to leave because I didn't have enough money. 60,000 in debt and no degree. Then on top of this I always owed money and had to pay them something at the end of each school year. I am more upset about the counsel in which I recieved before agreeing to be a student. They don't care about th students only the money. They seem to forget the students are the reason they have the money. Trying to get answers to how I can finish my degree had been a hair pulling process. They have not been easy to work with. They have not openly gave me the tool or resources to help me. I have had to pry and get nasty with them. Many games of phone tag. Many emails to be answered when ever and sometimes never get a response. They are horrible.

    I was enrolled in the early childhood program and was told that I would be licensed after I graduated, I was told I could transfer my license to teach from Iowa to Ohio. well then I realized I wasn't going to get a license at all and wasn't going to get my degree until I paid the school another $150. Nobody with transfer my credits for this school. I found I may be able to go to another school for certification but that's another year and another $20,000. AWESOME! now I have a colections bill for $ 150 and a loan for 65,000 and no way to pay it off. I found out about a class action suit. http://www.bottinilaw.com/lawsuit-type/consumer-class-action
