How Can I Get My Boston Reed College Transcript and Money Back?

Written by Steve Rhode

Question:

Dear Steve,

I went to a college in California for a 3 month EKG tech program successfully completed and paid for from my parents. Boston Reed College literally after we all had graduated and tried finding jobs the school was later discredited and now we can’t get ahold of anyone because the site no longer exists.

Is there a way if any, if my parents can get back the money that they had spent sending me to that program. They shouldn’t have to pay if there was no point in taking the classes and the school later discredited and closed down. no contact no nothing.

Answer:

Dear Kristin,

It seems like Boston Reed College is vanishing quickly so you should request a copy of your transcript as soon as possible if you don’t have one.

I found two ways of requesting a transcript and who knows how long these will work.

One request form has the following contact information:

Boston Reed
2799 Napa Valley Corporate Drive
Napa,CA94558

Phone: 800-201-1141
Fax: 888-600-1536

Here are the forms I found: Here and Here.

As far as possibly getting any money back, your only chance would be if the school was paid for with federal student loans. The Department of Education has a process for closed schools. But to be eligible for a federal student loan discharge you would have had to attend not long before the school closed.

Outside of that, the chances are pretty much zero.

Think of it like this, the product was defective and the merchant went out of business. You could always try to sue the school to recover tuition but it is a long shot and can be very expensive.

It looks like the school had quality problems since at least 2012. I’m not sure when you went there. The reviews by others are pretty bad.
