I just got a call from a collection agency about 17000 dollars they say I owe. I didn’t recognize the school because it was called axia college a division of UOP when I took online classes.
But looked up Apollo university and it all made sense. I was in the first online class for undergraduates. There was no other options but AA in Business. I was two classes away when I was taking care of my dad cause he had cancer. I flunked last two courses.
They told me I could retake for free so I did and my dad died and flunked again. We were guinea pigs for that school. anyway after dad died couldn’t pay mortgage payments to sister in law and husband got a job and we started making payments.
Then he got deported and I left the country and lived in Samoa for 5 years. I am now divorced living with my son and his wife and work pt time at Walmart. I cannot pay 17000 dollars I don’t even have enough to have an apartment now. So how am I gonna a pay for this horrible school that was a stupid waste. My taxes go to Citibank and I am just at a loss. thanks sorry so long
Is there any loan forgiveness or anything else I can do?
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Axia College was the community college division of the University of Phoenix. So the odds are they were a Title IV recognized school. But I would certainly double check that for sure.
I’m not sure if these were federal or private loans. If these were federal loans, then look at this article.
