Today, I learned that the college I'm going to in the fall has been tampering with their ratings on the internet and actually only has a 5% graduation rate. Everything's already been paid for and I can't transfer elsewhere. FML

Time to sue, that's false advertising!

That's not necessarily a bad thing. My college has like a 40% graduation rate because a lot of people start there and then transfer

Actually, that sounds way better than the advice I gave. If the OP has the proof, he can get his money back.

Maybe you should stick with it for only one semester or a full year since you can't transfer at the moment. Afterward, definitely go to a different school!

Is it Trump University? Naw. It's can't be. 5% is way too high for TU.

Why do you people have to bring things that are completely unrelated into this?

A university that ripped students off is unrealted?

Wow. You are SO original. Lame.

Take a year, get your prerequisites out of the way, then transfer

First, check to make sure credits from that school would be accepted at other schools. If they are transferable, decide if you want to take a semester or two then transfer or take one off and start somewhere late. If they arent, withdrawal now for a full refund and find a new school to start at next semester or year. My school would give full refund on tuition if you withdrawl within a certain time and partial before half semester. If they don't do this, prob hafta sue.

Ooo I bet you could find an attorney that would be frothing at the mouth to take that case!

Prove them wrong!! Be one of the proud 5%!!!

Almost everyone is saying to sue. That would be your last option. Talk to the school about withdrawing and get a full refund if you don't mind taking a semester off of school. If they don't comply, talk to the department of education. They would be able to investigate and help you. It's called the borrowers defense to repayment. I should know a thing or two considering I work for Nelnet, a loan company servicer.

All you got to dos learn hard and become one of the 5% graduates. You won't have a problem.
