I attended Collins college in Tempe, AZ. The school was a scam. When you attended the walk through the enrollment counselor would hype the school up with a bunch of false promises, such as you will make 80k right out of school with the help of our employer assistance department. They would pull you out of class to make you sign loan documents and try to rush you through them without reading them. One time I asked to see the paper with the interest rates and information on how much the loan was and the financial aid woman said she didn’t have time to print that out because she already working late and I either signed the paper or I didn’t get to go to class and it would push my graduation date back a year. The school is now closing because of its shady practices because the word finally got out. I’m now in debt over 150k in student loans with no end in sight causing me a lot of stress.
Consumer Action Taken:
I’ve talked to the counselors who are new at the school because all the ones who were there when I started were either fired or quit. The new counselors explained to me that they cannot find the information about what my student loans were used for and they don’t have any information from the previous counselors.
