I attended [School X] (now called [School Y]) in Tampa, FL. I moved there just to attend this school. Unfortunately, my ex became abusive and I had to leave unexpectedly after my 1st semester. I made an A in medical terminology and a B in my career success class.
A few years later, I went to reapply to college and they tell me I need transcripts from [School X/Y]. I call [School X/Y] to retrieve them and they tell me I owe the school $800.00. What?! And there was no getting around it. They were rude and never returned my calls; when I did talk to them they gave me a runaround. About six arguments and a few rude people later, they tell me we can't even help you it's been sent to the collections. UGHHHH!
These people are messing my with my education. . . . my life! They wouldn't give me info on the debt or anything. Finally after weeks of pulling teeth, I find out I can't use this credits and they've continued to charge me for credits I didn't take. So they basically kept charging me like I was physically there in class. . . . CRAZY, right? So now the hard work I did do, I can't use 'cause THE CREDITS AREN'T TRANSFERABLE, they mean nothing to my future school.
[Collection agency] was the debt collectors and they definitely made my situation easier and pleasant right off the bat. They even gave me a discount, which I greatly appreciated. I will gladly own up to any debt but [School X/Y] school had no right to charge me for 16 credits when I only completed 6. That company is a joke. But everybody I spoke with at [Collection Agency] was GREAT and I can't thank them enough, to top it all off they even sent in my transcripts request form! So my ties are hopefully done with [School X/Y] and I can get a real education now. . .
