This can't be good.
I've heard a few comments from Prince students that weren't too positive about how things worked at Prince ....
T. S., where are you getting these quotes from?
Apparently, they aren't the only ones. Bryan College is closing their brick-and-mortar school for reporting as well. They do still have their online program, though. Since Mrs. P sold it, it really wasn't the same school at all. I wouldn't have recommended it to anyone. Sad, though.
Here's a link with TV news story about Bryan College stopping enrolling new students.
Thanks for sharing that, Bill. It's sad that those students are going to be left with huge loans and no school to go to. That was why I wouldn't have recommended it because they were charging an enormous amount for one quarter. The average student would not be able to finish on government loans alone. They would max out before they were done, but Bryan was pushing private loans on students at that point, I know. It was just too much investment for a program that has such a high dropout rate.
I really feel for those students. I was at Bryan's original school in Los Angeles and had just reached the fast class when the new ownership upped the tuition to over $3,000 a quarter. I was devastated because I couldn't afford it anymore. Not exactly the situation you want to be in after getting that far. I ended up driving 70 miles one way to Downey Adult School to complete the program and get certified. It sounds like there are no other options for these students other than online.
