| Beth Voigt; Ron Ratliff, and Rachel Schneider Capella University, Financial Aid Counselors, Office of Financial Aid are just three amigos who got their jobs at this institution, through other incompetent employees of Capella. I have been attending Capella since the last two years. I never had a problem with my financial aid before, until now. These three amigos told me that some of my loans were not consolidated from prior schools that I attended, and that was the reason why I was not eligible to recieve new financial aid or 2008 - 2009. |
This is what all three jackass wrote, "Per the National Student Loan Data Base System (NSLDS) it looks you were overawarded as an undergrad. Capella University is required to use the National Student Loan Data Base System (NSLDS) to review loan history and determine stafford eligiblity. All of your undergraduate loans look as though they have been consolidated except one subsidized loan. It appears this loan may be a duplicate loan; however, we will need proof that either this loan is a duplicate or it has been paid off before your 2008-2009 financial aid can be awarded."
Everyone that I spoke to suggest that you can't go by the information in the NSLDS to determine financial aid reward(s). It wasn't a problem then the last two years, and it shouldn't be a problem now. After I got in touch with th lender of my prior loans that I consolidated. I send disclosure statements, master promisory note and other proof to these three morans, to show that all my prior loans that I had, before attending Capella have been consolidated and I am in deferment status. These three jackass still refuse to acknowledge the information, and refuse to process my financial aid. I had to contact the office of the Ombudsman at the US Department of Education so they can open an enquiry in this matter. There are so much much incompetent people employed at Capella in all departments, and I am looking forward in attending a traditional university in the near future.

| Two year ago, I was doing very well and I was happy in my job. Then, I saw Capella's advertisement and call them for information. Before I knew it, I was sucked in and after two years I am now in the middle of chaos. I spent almost 50,000 dollars and although I carry 4.0, my advisor told me today that I am facing dismissal because my progress isn't good enough. What kind of logic is this? Now, I don't even know how I can sleep tonight knowing that I have been conned by their representatives. I am very upset |

| I have been very unhappy with what I have been hearing about my alma mater in the last five years. The Psychology Department is going down the tubes, probably due to not getting accredited with APA. I would not recommend Capella University to anyone right now. They take your financial aid, may disenroll you for no reason during your last class before graduation. You would then have about $60,000 to $150,000 of student loans to pay back with nothing to show for it. They don't care about the students. There is no due process or grievance policies followed through, students have no say or voice in what happens to them. Capella is a money mill for the executives that take huge bonuses every year, and a bad marketing scheme. Stay away, run away as fast as you can. And this post is not Jeff LaMarca. There are many others, in fact a growing group, Capella Watchdogs, that are not going to let them get away with these practices any more. |
