My name is Sharon Stoltz. When I made the decision to go to school, I had to make sure that I would still be able to work full-time, & go to school full time.
At the time that I was looking, I made the decision to attend Brown Mackie College because they fit my needs at the time. I was told that they were accreditate, & that if I decided to prusue more schooling after I finished with my degree that I would be able to transfer my credits to either a community college, or University.
I completed my associates degree in Healthcare Administration. Upon graduation exit, I went over ALL expenses to make sure that I had no outstanding balances.
I signed all documents showing that I had a zero balance with the school. 9 months went by & I received a bill from them stating that I owed them $381.00 & that if I didn't pay within 30days that I would be sent to collections. So, I went down to the school to discuss this with them, & I took a copy of my documents showing that I had a zero balance. I was told that they accidentaly sent me a refund check totaling $381.00.
I told them that they needed to go back to re-check that because I never received a refund, & that they couldn't have sent me a refund because there was nothing to refund. I was told basically told tough ***, they show that they sent me a refund & that I owed it back to them. I fought & fought them on this because I never received anything from them.
Now, I have decided to go back to shcool again, this time for a RN Batchlor's degree.
I have just found out that all our community colleges & University's will not accept my BMC credits. I have been told that I have to re-take ALL my basic classes like Bio, Chem, Eng 101/102, Math, Crit reading, ect because my college credits are not transferable.
That's two years of my life, not to mention money that has been a COMPLETE waste! I will be contacting the school board, & will be seeking a refund.
