I was really excited about joining the U of P. I felt that I was finally going to below to something important and because of hearing great things from other students regarding the program, it would work out. Over time the only thing that U of P was interested in was making money off of the students attending. Whenever you try to contact the instructors or advisors regarding a matter you truly get the run around and they are not as friendly as they were when getting you to attend. I recently had baby, in which needed to take a leave from school. My advisor was trying to convince me to only *** a couple of weeks versus a normal month and a half. I had to make it very clear that I wanted to enjoy the experience of having my baby and carrying for her without any distractions what so ever. Although hesitant, he and she agreed. During my leave I stressed to my advisor that I was unable to fulfill two classes, and would only be able to attend one. At this point the advisor told me that I had to take two in order to recieve any additional funds for school. I was not concerned about the money, but becoming overwhelmed and burnt out. So I decided I was unable to return. Last week I received a call from FMS informing that I owed $2200 for classes that I supposedly owed money for. They have been calling non stop at work, in which I have now asked them again not to do. I never even signed up for or took these classes. I was informed by the representative at FMS that other people have experienced that smae matter and were having to pay back money to the school. I find this to be BS. How can a school charge you for classes that were never even requested or taken. I feel that I should not owe them anything, and if people in the same boat that have experienced this same matter should join with me in sticking up to this so called school.. We can really make a difference if we stick together. I was reading some where that U of P has had a class action lawsuit and with many more, they will be forced to change their under the table policy.
For those of you that feel that the U of P is fine. That's great I am glad that the school worked for you. But do not turn your noses up at people that got a bad break for this school, it could easily have been yourself that this has happen to.
Please respond if you story is similar to mine, and would like to see something done about this company. Thank you!
