Fraudulent school loans!

I have not been ripped off by AIU because I am cautious. I actually completed a questionaire for Caplan University but apparently these guys share all information with each other (for profit of course) and they have sold my information to countless others. In the last week since asking for information, I have been called around 50 times by various organizations I've never even heard of, all trying to sell me a degree. AIU attempted to enroll me and act as if they were doing me a favor and posing the question of "if you are accepted" Very high pressure tactics that are utterly transparent. I informed them that I was the customer and that if I wrote them a check there was no question as to my acceptance. AIU seriously tried to push me towards federal assistance and wanted all sorts of information that served no purpose for education other than for them to sell the information or use it to apply for federal assistance. These guys are the true internet predators and after a few interactions with them, I told them I wanted nothing further to do with them or their programs. I continue to receive calls from many non-native speakers now and am very ticked off that all my information was sold all over the internet. These people are scumbags of the first order and I would advise anyone to stay away from them. Your local schools offer online classes for less money than you will wind up paying these jerks and you will not have to worry about the quality of education or the legitimacy of the degree you obtain. Stay away from these off-brand online schools. They are nothing more than an electronic age hustle.

AIU is a scam

Stay away from this scam. I completed AIUs BBA degree plan and completed it shortly before I retired from the US Coast Guard. I thought along with my 30 years of experience a degree would give me a better chance of getting a good civilian job, wrong!!!!! I soon found out no employers looked on the AIU degree as a real one. I decided to go back to school and get an MBA, and after applying at no less than 5 colleges/universities if found that not one of my AIU credits transferred. So I had to start all over. I now have several MS degrees as well as an MBA in project management. All I ended up with as far as AIU goes in 3 wasted years of time and over $25k in student loan debt. I should have known better, with AIUs high pressure sales tactics to take loans out and constant calls but I did not think about it. Also AIU outright lied about it's programs graduation employment numbers, salary stats as well as their so called after graduation employment help IE resume writing help and so on. I also should have been concerned about the grades I got in classes I was a well below average student in high school and did in fact drop out in my senior year, yet even with no experience in the business field I was getting all A's in classes and ended up with a 3.98gpa. I saved all papers I wrote during my AIU classes and looking at them now, IMO they would get a C in high school at best. I bet thinking back now if I would have submitted a drawing of a happy face as an assignment it would have received an A as well. Do yourselves a favor people, stay away from AIU.
