They lied and stated the were from excelsior college and I was enrolling in the college and I would recieve my textbooks included in the cost of tuition. It has been years I have paid $140 a month for their worthless "books" not the college and I still owe over $4,000!

This guy came to my house and made all kinds of promises like I would recieve a tutor and such. They should be held accountable for all the people they ripped off and for claining they were from Excelsior!

A good story can only last so long! They should be out of business!

This is the worst mistake i have made. I am single mother struggling and have been paying these high payments for couple of years.

I can't get out of the loan and have no reason to conitnue with them. They do not offer any other programs that i would be interested in. I have made several attempts to stop this loan with no success. I am stuck and having to choose between food and paying these payments.

I can't afford to have this on my credit either. If anyone can help I would greatly appricaite it....

Without a doubt The College Network was the worst (and most expensive) mistake I've ever made. I wanted to work on my BSN and "thought" this was a good way to start.

WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!! A representative from College Network came to my home, gave his sales pitch, then gave me the "act now" speech to get started. Well I fell for it like an ***. He gave me my 1st book to study, had me sign the finance papers, and left.

When I started getting struck on things I called for help. The only thing I got was the "you can do it" pep talk. As a result, I failed and never used the system. That was in 2007 and today (in 2014) I'm still paying on the loan and still owe $2500.00.

They've even sold my account to a different financial group twice.

We moved to Florida where my company is now paying for my BSN at a much cheaper rate. I would NEVER RECOMMEND College Network to anyone, especially the school I was originally getting my degree from.

I am in the same boat, this advisor guy came to my school about a month before graduating LPN school, out said all these wonderful things,of course we all wanted to get our RN, the courses are awful and the "advisors" are horrible. The company I work for is paying to send me to school so I tried yet again to cancel ect, she kept feeding me this life long commitment stuff...at the end of the day im paying 6,000 for NOTHING...they wont give a penny back and you dont need them to get into exelsior..despite what they say that rep told us they worked together and we needed them to get in...but after speaking with excelsior myself....THEY DONT...its a huge scam and a large waste of money...please please...dont fall into the same trap that myself and 5 other classmates fell into!!!!

If there is a law suit going on, please let me know. Too many students have been scammed, and that's how they make their money.

They have an "F" rating with the Better Business Bureau!!!!!

Call Better Business Bureau in Indianapolis. They will tell you.
