Complaint / review text:
I registerd for classes in 2009, at Grand Canyon University for classes in Special Education. The first week of class, 07/23/09, I post to the forum information about myself. I started an essay on why a teacher's portfolio is a good tool for teachers. I never received a response from my teacher acknowledging my presents or answer to my question, that is, about using my experience as a Special Education Teacher in my required assignment. I spoke to financial aid counselors and to advisors - Lorenzo and Angelo who told me that it was not normal for a professor not to reply. Furthermore, they insisted that I wait the 2nd week to get a reply from my teacher. After waiting the 2nd week, I emailed my professor for the 2nd time and told him that I could not understand why he did not respond to my post and emails and that I no longer wanted to be in his class. I called Angelo and told him that I did not receive a response from my teacher, and, I did not want to attend Grand Canyon University any longer. He said, Maybe the professor doesnt like you. I should have known not to get a degree in Colorodo, the last state to sign for Dr. Martin Luther Kings holiday.
Since then, I have been charged for a service never rendered, and charged for a second class, I never attended, costing me $2,998.00. I now know that Angelo and Lorenzo told me to wait until the second week so that I would be locked into paying for classes. I was told to write the president of the school about my complaint and did just that. Once again, I received no response or my funds back. This is robbery! I do not want any student ever to have to go through this. I want my money credited back to me. Also, my new school states that they still have me registered in Grand Canyon for classes. Amazing!
I have written The President of the United States, and plan on using any information possible to help me in this matter. No one has the right to charge you for services never rendered. It was like being out in an ocean without help, all by myself. At this point if there are any students that have complaints against Grand Canyon write President Obama because he wants the best for all students. Pray about it because there is a God in Heaven, and get in touch with the Attorney General of Colorodo - Better Bussiness Bureau, file complaints with the police department, call the news, use face book and U-Tube to tell potential students to stay away from Grand Canyon University. I am doing all that I can to get justice for myself and all students that have been treated unfairly. I have read previous statements about students complaints. You would expect more from educated people at that school. There greed exceeds their intelligence. I dont see anything Christian about robbing students.
