Report Filed: ITT-TECH/BRADENTON,FL Financial Aid fraud Bradenton, Florida!!
I started ITT-TECH June 13,2011 taking the IT course to get an Associates degree and was looking forward to continuing onto my Masters later on. I’m recently out of the Navy so my education is paid for through the VA. Not only that but I have been 100% covered by other Scholarships and Grants, for the most part my school is paid for. The total amount owed to the school for the period of 6/13/2011-3/11/2012 is $17,948, with my total amount that I have been awarded with from the scholarships and grants, was paid to Itt-tech in the amount of $26,498, therefore the school owing me the difference of $8550. For the past 6 months of attending school, passing and being a full time student, I have only received 2 checks from them, one in the amount of $308.00 and another one about 2 months later for $497.00???????WTF is that?!!!! I have repeatedly complained to Marrissa in financial aid about the hold up of money that is mine, that they already received all funds from the VA and the Champaign Scholarship, which I have documents from the school dating back to June 22,2011, that my account has been credited $1850.00 from the Pell grant.(haven’t seen a dime of that yet), also a letter from them the same month stating “Congratulations on being awarded the CHAMPAIGN SCHOLARSHIP in the amount of $3000 which was to be in two installments of $1500.00
