Tell us your Ashford University Stories

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

  • PATRICIA VIERA I AM IN DEBT BECAUSE OF THEM. THEY OVER CHARGED ME ON EVERYTHING.

  • Terri I will be honest, while at Ashford, I had a good expierence. However it is now after the fact and I have been looking for a good job (considering my masters and ba is from Ashford) I have had a lot of difficulties find a job. It's like some employers will not even take a second look once they see Ashford. I now have more student debt then I can handle which has not helped me in finding good paying employment. I still have the same job I had before I got my BA. This huge student loan bill has now been a burden on my marriage because it now effects how we file our taxes in order to still try to afford our monthly payments, monthly payments for a degree that does nothing. Very disappointing.

  • Thomas Page Ashford University has left us paying for more than we bargained for. I ended up not finishing because they kept raising their fees. We were misled in to thinking that we would be able to finish on time and in the budget we had put aside. The classes were also a joke. High school was more difficult. The advisers were not helpful and never answered questions when asked. They kept billing us for classes and once we tried to withdraw, because we were already enrolled they only reimbursed us a portion of what we paid. Now its my understanding that the technology fee that we paid was over 1200 dollars and they are now only paying 50 dollars a year. We could not pay it off and they sent us to collections with an interest rate of 33%. We are paying over 200 a month and that keeps going up every 3 months. I was enrolled from October 2011 through June 2012. Took 7 classes and still needed about 60 more hours to obtain my bachelors degree. Any help at all to get some help handling this would be of great help and would desperately help your financial needs.
