  • Can anyone tell me what is going on with the outlook student email accounts? I’ve been using mine, even since the closing, but since Monday I keep getting a site not found error message every time I log in. Were we notified that we were no longer going to be able to use those emails after a certain period of time? I’ve got so much stuff in my mail archives and I have no idea how to recover any of it. Can anyone enlighten me?????

  • I wish I was granted the option to rate my experience with Westwood College Online as a ZERO to represent the jobs I have qualified for since graduating; which turned out to be just one of the countless other issues I experienced as a student and graduate from Westwood College Online.

    I enrolled at Westwood College in 2009 because the greatest selling point was not only would I learn what I needed to enter my desired career field through the convenience of online study but I was promised job placement. Unfortunately their admissions process was deceptive and misleading as I am still working in retail sales, I have been working in retail for over 20 years now. I enrolled and pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design: Game Art but have not been able to get a job since I graduated in 2012. Westwood’s advisors have not assisted with job to pursue a job in animation but have not been granted successful job placement as promised.

    At the time of my enrollment, when I initially interviewed with Westwood, they misrepresented salary and jobs available for those in my field of study. For example exaggerating animator salaries stating they earn more than 60-70,000 per year when it turned out that they make around 30-40,000 per year. They also made it sound that it was a robust industry however there are nowhere near as many job opportunities available as they led me to believe. There is also an issue with Westwood’s predatory loans and lending practices, both private and federal loans, and I have a questionable number of loans at this time – a total of 21 loans. I am confused on the total cost of my education as my student loan amounts today seemed to have nearly doubled what I was initially told tuition would be. My loans have changed servicers a couple of times and I have asked for copies of all promissory notes on all loans several times since my loans started to come due in 2014, but only one institution was willing to disclose this information (Navient provided these documents in September 2015, I have printed copies of the MPNs that they were able to retrieve but they said that the MPN’s they have only cover 9 of my loans; but no one can account for the remaining 12 loans).

    After reviewing all of my personal records, emails and printouts, it appears as though I did not physically review the terms for any of the loans provided by Westwood nor did I sign for each loan they are now trying to collect from me. It appears as though Westwood financial advisors inputted the information because the two MPN’s provided by Navient do not show that I signed for them. I was not aware of the number of loans and the size of these loans until I started reviewing my credit reports this year and began the mortgage prequalification process; I was denied the mortgage because to my surprise, the amount of my student loans doubled my income (100% debt to income ratio) and also because loan servicers had reported my account as delinquent when it was to be in either deferment or forbearance which had a negative impact on my credit score. Now onto the job placement issue….Westwood misrepresented their employment statistics and stated they guarantee job placement but kept switching advisors who never assisted with job placement. They would ask for an updated resume, would claim to email potential jobs, then I would never receive any job listings, I would follow up with the advisor after not hearing from them anymore to find they left and that I was assigned another advisor and the same cycle would repeat itself. The first advisor was Andrew Zimmerman (left in 2012), the second advisor was Melissa Heigle (left in 2013), the third advisor was Brent Geske (left in 2014), never heard from another advisor since.

    Since I was not finding work in my field and was not making enough to pay for basic cost of living and loan repayment I had to defer my loan after graduation. After the second deferment they told me I was no longer eligible for deferment and that I had to apply for forbearance. After applying for it, ACS denied my application and sent me a letter stating that if I paid one month in full that it would bring my account up to date, prevent default and they would retroactive my forbearance status, the forbearance period was from February 2014-2015, they should have removed the 60-180 day delinquencies reported to the credit bureaus because I did pay the amount they requested when they requested it in order to have my forbearance status retroactively reinstated. Their letter stating they need one payment plus a copy of my payment are on the next two pages. I followed up on the status of my account on 8/15/14 and a woman by the name of Theresa stated that my account was retroactively placed back into forbearance and that it would be in forbearance until 2/2015 and at that time I could apply for income sensitive repayment.

    Other issues encountered with Westwood:

    They made several errors in paperwork when I enrolled (have email correspondences stating they made errors in my start date, classes and other things).

    They would not transfer some credits in when they were legitimate prerequisite courses that could have been transferred.

    Finally….They delayed my graduation date due to issues on their end, changing it from August 2011 to January 2012, did not graduate until December 2012 because they made me change loans, adding a private loan on top of federal loans, forcing more loans.

    IT’S NO WONDER WESTWOOD HAS CLOSED ITS DOORS AS OF MARCH 2016 – ALL STUDENTS FROM ALL CAMPUSES SHOULD WRITE TO THE DEPT OF EDUCATION, DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, CONGRESS, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OF COLORADO, AND ALL STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE THEIR FEDERAL STUDENT LOANS DISCHARGED AS THEIR INSTITUTION, WESTWOOD COLLEGE, IS GUILTY OF COMMITTING COUNTLESS CRIMINAL ACTS BY DEFRAUDING STUDENTS!

    Do yourself a favor and apply for Federal Loan Discharge. When they deny your loan discharge application, appeal it, get yourself a lawyer and fight it to the very end. No one should be forced to pay back student loans for attending a corrupt institution where the individual gained absolutely NOTHING from it but an expensive and worthless piece of paper while the institution takes your HARD EARNED CASH.

  • They eat and breathe money, you will be a debt slave for life! Community college is better than this, or try and go to a Non-Profit college. Serious joke. Save yourself NOW! The representatives on the phone scoff and laugh at you if you try to turn down going here. Don’t fall for it please! I don’t think any other action on my part is needed right now. Karma has an ‘eye’ that sees the truth in schemes, this one is bound to end soon on its own. When one does something for the better of themselves and not for humanity, no one gains anything but disappointment . . . whether it be debt or bad reviews. Don’t feed them business. My final warning, may love and light guide you to a better life than this. I once had a dream. Don’t let them crush yours.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE READ THE REVIEWS!!!! THEY SHOULD AUDIT THEM !!

  • Westwood Colleg is a big waste of time. When asking for help, their response was, “Figure it out [for yourself].” I was a game art student and I had to have a portfolio. Their only main concern was to make the students cry for having bad artwork. That is all. It was a big waste of time. For field trips, we went to Tommy Burger. This is not a legitimate school.

  • Westwood College is absolutely a big waste of time. I cannot get a job and the teachers are extremely nasty. I graduated a Game Art Student. For my portfolio and artwork, I had to go through a “portfolio review.” Instead of helping us, they would try to make us cry for having bad artwork. When I asked the how to do something, they replied, “Figure it out [for yourself].”

  • I saw all the reviews and can understand people anger. I think as people we want to hear want we want and close out things we dont want to hear. You can complain all you want but bottom line you need to invetigate before you sign anything. I bought a car. I test drove it I did my research on re-sell value and made sure I was was getting something for the cost. PEOPLE ARE LAZY SO YOU WILL BE TAKEN…..My thoughts

  • Please visit westwoodisawful . com for info this college does NOT want you to see. I am at my wit’s end with this degree mill. They lied to me in every way, shape and form. Ben my admission counselor (Salesman) stated credits would be transferable, now they post on the website they are not transferable. Degree can be used to obtain a better position or higher paying job. Now they state is only gives you the tools to succeed..lies, lies, lies…

    Even the Dean, School of Technology of WOL who I met lies to me about future accreditation. Where does it end?

    Westwood has voluntarily dropped from Regional Candidacy. As I work a second job (nights and weekends) trying to pay for this now $80,000 education that is worthless, trying to stay afloat of this financial h**l that this college create, my anger grows. So what did I learn that cost me $80,000 and nothing but grief, financial insecurity and embarrassment? That For-Profit schools like Westwood are out to make money off the backs of those who want to succeed and have dreams by lying and making false promises. They are in it only for the money and will not supply you with an education that will allow you to enter the job market. You will be placed so far into debt that no matter what job you apply for, you will not be able to realistically pay it off timely and if you do get a degree from them, it is better used as toilet paper.

    Now the have a placement guarantee that is really not a guarantee. See the other posts to see how it works. It’s your money that they are giving back to you if they cannot help you find a job. You are still paying for it and once the six months are up, you are still saddled with outrageous school loans.

    No one who graduated with me was able to work in their field of study and failed to keep their promise of job assistance. Westwood college (joke) needs to be shut down.

    Westwood ruined my credit, finances and future dreams.

    I am amazed at the amount of fraud,deceit and lies from this degree mill. Online research has provided me with some interesting information.

    On 04/20/2011 the BBB accreditation wassuspended due to recent government action concerning the marketplaceand its customers that demonstrates a significant failure of thecompany to support the principles and purposes of BBB accreditation. The matter will be reviewed by the BBB’s Board of Directors at its next meeting.

    On December 14, 2010 the Colorado Commission of Higher Education (CCHE) changed Westwood College’s status from Full Authorization to Probationary Authorization due to it’s probation order from the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges.

    The Department of Veterans Affairs has pulled GI Bill funding from all three Texas campuses of a for-profit college accused of misleading advertising and enrollment practices.

    At the December 2, 2010 regular CCHE meeting, Commissioners voted to defer action for Westwood College until staff had received notification from the Accrediting Commission for Career Colleges and Schools. Department staff received a “Continued Probation Order” from the ACCSC on December 9, 2010. The ACCSC reviewed the September 1, 2010 Probation Order and the school’s response to that action at its November 2010 meeting. It was determined that the school has not demonstrated compliance with the ACCSC’s requirements relative to student achievement outcomes.

    Additionally, Westwood College was requested to provide information with regard to compliance to several and various state agencies and other accreditors given the allegations of the Government Accountability Office August 4, 2010 report.

    On April 6, 2009 the United States of America (on behalf of the United States Board of Education) filed an Amended Complaint in the United State District Court of the Northern District of Texas. Charges filed indicate the business was in violation of state law prohibiting a failure to comply with Statutory and Regulatory Requirements for Proprietary School Operations. Particularly, some charges related to unethical and/or misleading recruitment practices, failure to report unsatisfactory job placement rates for graduates, and/or failure to properly register school representatives. The matter was resolved by a settlement in March 2009.

    In 2009, Westwood’s parent company, Alta Colleges Inc., of Denver, agreed to pay the U.S. government $7 million to settle a lawsuit accusing the Texas campuses of submitting falsified federal student aid forms.

    Wow….and they have the nerve to tell me they are transparent?

    These scammers need to be shut down.

  • Don’t ever go to Westwood college, because from my experience the representatives and most of the teachers or tutors, would tell you a bunch of lies of Westwood college. And many of the teachers or tutors, don’t have an idea what they are teaching about. However the only thing they care is just the money. One example is I didn’t knew how to write a good essay and I still turn in to the teacher and they gave me an A+ and the my essay was horrible written. But my best choice of my life was dropping out from Westwood college and enrolling to a Community College plus transferring to Cal State University, because the professors of the Community College help me to write a good essay and the Community College really care, for their students. Westwood college is just a Worthless and fake college.

  • Biggest Mistake in my life was to apply to this fake college. After searching around, hoping to get into a bachelor’s program where I could move into management, I was contacted by a Westwood representative by the name of Ben who told me nothing but lies and mislead me during the application process. Yes, at the time, they were seeking Regional Accreditation. They had their ACICS accreditation but I was told by the recruiter that they were way past the point of candidacy and it would be only a short time before they were Regionally accredited. False promises, lies about their accreditation and several years later, I graduated. Took my degree to my current employer and after HR review, they explained to me since they do not have Regional accreditation, I was out of luck and could not be considered for management. My employer would not even allow me to apply for educationally assistance or reimbursement because this “college” was not a valid institution.

    So I tried taking my transcript to 3 local community colleges and was told the credits are non transferable. Went to 2 local “for-profit” schools with ACICS accreditation as well and was also denied. Tried using this fake degree to apply for several positions with SCE, IBM, Oracle, Wells Fargo, and a hand full of respectable and known IT companies. Received nice thank you letters but was told that I did not meet the minimum educational requirements by two potential employers because this ‘college’ did not meet their criteria as an educational institution. Yet, I did meet the experience portion of several but because of my lack of an actual degree, was denied an interview.

    So now, several years down the road I see that Westwood has voluntarily dropped from Regional Candidacy. As I work a second job (nights and weekends) trying to pay for this $50,000+ education that is worthless, trying to stay afloat of this financial hell that this college create, my anger grows. So what did I learn that cost me $50,000 and nothing but grief, financial insecurity and embarrassment? That For-Profit schools like Westwood are out to make money off the backs of those who want to succeed and have dreams by lying and making false promises. They are in it only for the money and will not supply you with an education that will allow you to enter the job market. You will be placed so far into debt that no matter what job you apply for, you will not be able to realistically pay it off timely and if you do get a degree from them, it is better used as toilet paper.

    I was duped and feel like I’ve been made a fool by attending this joke of a college. Yes, I am trying to pay off this bogus debt. I have been in the IT business for over 20 years, hold certifications in Cisco, Microsoft and database administration, all obtained prior to Westwood. Some people have hobbies, collecting coins, boating, needle-point. Starting today, my hobby will be to go online at least once a week, visit as many websites as I can and spread the word on what this school did to me, financially and emotionally, and of those that graduated from Westwood with me that I am still in contact with, here is a list of their current positions as of today: Manager KFC, Walmart Clerk, Homeless and Unemployed, Clerk 7-11, Student (went to a real college to start over)

    No one who graduated with me was able to work in their field of study and failed to keep their promise of job assistance.

  • I am currently enrolled at Westwood College at the Ballston campus. And right now i wish i could transfer to another college system. There has been many suspect decisions done at the corporate level that has negatively impacted my college at least in my eyes. For the money that i am paying i have no say in what goes on. there is no student government and my teachers can and seemingly have been fired for reasons that no one can give me a clear answer to. I have to supply myself with any programs i need outside of class, which are quite expensive. Never did i think that a so called college would feel like it was being run by “corporate suits” but that is just the feeling my fellow classmates and i have now. Now seeing all of these reviews i know now that i made a grievous error in choosing Westwood, since i had to be in college i hastely went there. Now i am wishing for a time machine!

  • Bad College …dont go there…this is a For-Profit College…they rip people off and their accrediation is worthless. Not a single unit is transferable to the UC/CSU system as the agents(snake oil sales men) claim and lie about. Tons of lawsuits against them have been won by past students who were victims of huge debts. even going to harvard can be cheaper than westwood college. westwoods quality of instruction is terrible. none of the teachers are qualified or else they would be in real colleges.
