Sign Petition

Tell us your Ashford University Stories

390 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

    I am a former Bridgepoint Education and Ashford University Online Student from 2004-2010. I was given false hope of a teaching degree or the eligability to take the state test after completing a BA and then a Master's degree. I also applied for Financial aid and a three of the years I was granted the aid but it was never applied to my loan. In 2008 I called Financial aid to ask why (single parent of 3 with one income and no other support) did not qualify for aid and they told me the form had been changed by the college and they said I made way over the threshold. I attempted to fight this though the college and got nowhere. I paid out of pocket on more than one occasion and they replacedt the amount on the loan. The college also double charged me for 3 classes. My loan ended up being 75000 for 5 years and three years I had financial aid grants. I was originally co-hearsed into attending the college online by being told that it was an affiliate of Harvard. I did not know that you had to research these things. I fully trusted my advisors. I contested the amount twice and it was passed over twice. My degrees ended up being useless. I have applied (before and since graduation) to over 100 organizations and to take the praxis and I was told that my degrees are invalid. I spent 5 years trying to balance and many times having to put my children on the wayside because I thought I was educating in order to get a better life for myself and children. My children resent the fact that the schooling took away from them without a just cause. I believe atleast I can do is to have my loans forgiven. Some of my papers are saved in my email and you can tell by the subjects that I thought that I was working on a degree that gave me eligibility to teach. Thank you for your time.

    Ashford University promised to help with becoming certified after obtaining a Social Science degree. It did not happen. Left the school owing over $30,000 in student loans.
