Loan Fraud | Brown Mackie College

I graduated in 2013. The ABQ campus never received accreditation in my field, so my degree is worthless. They have since closed. I did work in my field for a few months, but my state doesn't require licensure, and I didn't last long w the lack of skill. They do one class per month and when my fin-aid was up for renewal there was always something wrong, something delaying the process, and I was told to file for a gov't loan and when my financial aid came in it would cancel out the loan. In essence, the gov't loan would be paid back w the financial aid grant. Not true. I was not allowed to continue w my next class unless I filled these forms out, and if you miss a class you had to wait 3mo for it to come around again. That was not in my career/goals schedule and under the stress imposed by the staff I did what I was told. One time they even said they didn't have my high school transcripts and I couldn't apply for financial aid w/o them. I had already been enrolled for a while and received some financial aid, so it didn't sound right. They did this right before the xmas holiday and I had to apply for a gov't loan in order to enroll knowing my high school was closed for the holiday season and that paperwork would be a wait. I did complain but they didn't budge. The Dean took what I said and was angry but then he was let go for undisclosed reasons. Most likely because he was honest. I was also forced to take out loans directly from the college but those have since been forgiven due to the lawsuit and known mishandling of loans. This school is downright criminal!

Criminal | Brown Mackie College in Boise, Idaho

Details
Deceived my daughter and son in law. Left them in a horrific amount of student loan debt. They were not an accredited school. They were unable to finish their education there because they were removed for stupidity and ignored the many phone calls reaching out for help to continue or get their loans taken care of. Way too expensive and now they are financially strapped and cannot file bankruptcy on these criminals. This should be illegal......... I went in to help resolve issues and absolutely got no where. Now the school is closed down in my city so they cannot get any help. This is so not right and criminal for a so called college to get away with this. Not only to my kids, but several others who were promised things and to only get broken promises.

Hi, in San Antonio I had the same issue. $1200, they called it a stipend, but upon returning, i was to pay that back. How is that?,it is a stipend. So then, since i cashed it, that doubled what I owed them? How is that then? Then, they added 9,000$ more on top of the financial aid they had already taken. I also noticed, that in instances they would get the financial aid money, then return more than taken, and say I owed them. I signed up to achieve a Bachelors in April 2012, all these problems and I still have not had right chance to complete. We are in 2017, and the school kicked me out. Unfortunately, the school is closed for good and teaching students out. So now I am suing them for the 57,000 plus, 6,000 they say I owe them. What a waste of time. Fortunately, I found a school, (NAU), that will transfer 91% of my credits. What a relief after all the hassle and tears and frustration of trying to complete an education. By far the worst experience ever with a school.

I contibuously had financial aid problems with brown mackie college, tulsa, ok campus. I could no longer carry the high tuition rate and was not offered assistance, but was told i had to drop out. Because of this, I could not complete my Nursing career, and no other svhools would accept their credits in a transfer. I was stuck and out of thousands of dollars. I want my money back or a school that would accept the credits, allowing me to complete my nursing education.

Brown Mackie College Financial Aid Service Review from Mount Laurel, New Jersey

I had a awful experience with Brown Mackie I feel like I was ripped off (education wise). My first issue was that I signed some type of agreement form to be able to come back to school by a certain time due to an emergency family issue, I was told that I would pick up where I left off. When I came back no only did I have to re-enroll but I had to take out a second student loan and I didn't pick up where I left off. My second issue was when I did come back I still had to go infront of the board for an appeal as well as write a letter only to be told that this was my last shot. When I moved to my next class the following month I kept seeing a balance in my student portal. I went to financial aid, I spoke with the Dean, I spoke with my program leader etc. Only to be told not to worry about the fee that it was already paid and it was just taking some time for everything to go through. This went on for the whole month. They kept looking in their system constantly reassuring me that everything was okay and there was nothing to worry about. When it was time for me to attend my next class I wasn't able to. I was told that there was still a balance, again I tried speaking with any and everyone only to be told that I could not dispute it and that I needed to pay it. So I now have a balance, they refused to give me my transcript and I was almost done. Brown Mackie has screwed me over so bad until I don't trust anymore colleges and I'm too afraid to attend any other ones not even a community college.

I went to Brown Mackie College for Legal Studies and had three days left before I graduated with my associates degree. However, Faculty at Brown Mackie decided to fail me on my second to last day after receiving an emergency call, detailing my sickness, from the the place I was doing my externship. When confronted, Brown Mackie claimed that I owed 2500, and if I wanted to graduated with my associates degree, i d better pay them. I had financial aid as well. And they, too will not give me my transcripts.

I was attending BMC Merrillville in 2013 and when I went to file my taxes in February 2014 the person doing my taxes noticed that BMC was charging me (my financial aid) over $5000 every 3 months for room and board and transportation... They did not provide me room/board or transportation and when I confronted them with this I was told they did not receive money for that it was an estimate of what I pay for my housing and my vehicle. That was not the case it was pretty clear after I really read my FA paper work they were charging that and now I have to pay that back... I didn't graduate due to this I left with only 4 classes to go... BMC is the worst school ever!!! Biggest mistake I've ever made!!!

That is Bull, I think we should all contact the Indiana State Senator!!! If he does not listen, keep on bugging him. Because I know that I haven't received jobs just because I attended BM.

Class Action against Brown Mackie | Brown Mackie College in Washington, District Of Columbia

Hello All- I read an article on YAHOO news (Nov.26, 2012) about Jason Sobek, former employee of EDMC, whistle blower on For Profit colleges. Unfortunately I am a student directly affected by the unfair and unlawful practices of the schools managed by the Education Management FundSpecifically BROWN MACKIE. The government also won a law suite against Education Management Corporation and recovered funds in 2011 under the "false Claim Act". I attended Brown MACKIE college in Miami 2009 and I have over 35,000 in student loan debt after enrolling in their 2 year program associates degree program. I am a recipient of the practice of manipulation of future Career placement rates and fudging graduation rates ( among otherThings) were all demonstrated by the mentioned school. It wasn't uncommon for students to be kicked out of school and not allowed to come to class or use the facility if your account had a negative balance. (Eventually that was me) I was constantly doing "financial aid" paperwork to keep my balance positive. The moment I was unable to get an additional loan to pay any balance for housing and classes, (which they automatically register you for, even if you didn't have funds secured) they immediately shunned me from the school and I was left with ridiculous amount of debt, no degree, non transferable credits and a balance owed to the school. I never saw the total amount of classes or federal monies they requested on my behalf. Once I was kicked out of school It was nearly IMPOSSIBLE to speak to any one on the campus. My experience with brown MACKIE was filled with pressure and financially exhausting . A lot of fraudulent things took place during my tenure with brown MACKIE. I am Positive other students can attest to this claim. I can give more details about Brown Mackies predatory and fraudulent practices at a later time if needed. I have also filed a complaint with the CFPB (Consumer Finacial Protection Bureau) as well so that they can too look into this matter as well. I am seeking to join a class action lawsuit to pursue recovery of the student loan debt I have accrued plus damages. Thanks for your Time Pashanna FenwickFenwickpashanna@gmail.com

Financial Aid appointment... | Brown Mackie College in Phoenix, Arizona

I am so glad that the financial aid person was helping someone else and that my appointment was started by a fill in. The discussion of the finances was not good and even though with student loans and grants I would pretty much have my school paid for something was not sitting right with me so I chose not to attend. My admissions person had left for the evening so I sat with another person and told them for the cost and loans that I thought it would be better for me to get my bachelor's instead of just an associates. She then discouraged me stating that it would probably too difficult for me to get a Masters. I know I can accomplish anything and was so angry and I don't get angry very easily but I feel so much better now after reading these reviews. I believe God was looking out for me and this college was not for me and base on reviews not for a lot of people.
