Question
I have attended many colleges/universities in my educationalOther
I have attended many colleges/universities in my educational career, however this school was horrendous! I never even made it past signing up for classes because I was attending online and couldn't get the school to answer my questions. Due to this I decided to attend another institution. Though I had signed up for classes I did not think it was necessary to withdraw since classes had not yet started. At every other school I've ever attended, if you do not pay before the class starts they will withdraw you automatically. I received no correspondence from Troy State Univ. stating I had to do otherwise. In fact, I didn't receive ANYTHING from them until I was contacted by a collection agency to notify me the TSU had reported me for not paying for the classes I NEVER attended!!! After many idle calls to the TSU attempting to understand the charges I was told there was nothing they could do! WORST SCHOOL EVER!!!!

Question
Its a huge scam.BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Its a huge scam. They give scholarships to everyone then have teachers that fail 90% of their classes so students loose those scholarships but feel like they are so far into their major its worth paying to finish. Then they have Troy edition textbooks that are one time use only books and cant be resold, even to the university. Their distance learning is a joke. The whole point of online classes is to fit school to your schedule, they require you to pay an additional fee to take at least one proctored exam per class. Online classes already cost more than campus and then they slap you with another expense to take your tests. Now I was thinking I was going to get to finally graduate and I find out my advisor didnt sign me up for what I needed and I am still one class short. And I have 5 extra classes that won't count for anything. Hell will freeze before I send my children to Troy.
