The Department of Veterans Affairs announced yesterday that it’s going to suspend some GI Bill enrollments for schools that have been suspected of “deceptive” sales, advertisin or enrollment practices (story HERE).
Here is the VA statement.
One of the schools listed, The University of Phoenix, which has had more than 500 complaints by veterans groups completed against them according to reports, has a campus here in Orlando.
It’s imperative that Orlando area veterans exercise extreme caution when dealing with organizations being disciplined by the VA.
The University of Phoenix was monitoring my social media traffic yesterday and sent this statement to me.
Before enrolling in any program, local veterans should ask their families, friends, and professional contacts for feed back on the organization their considering. Also do research on an organization yourself before making any commitments.
