Anthem College and its Institutes closed their doors after filing for bankruptcy in 2014. This decision was made after the school came under investigation by the U.S. Senate.
The closure of the school left many students scrambling to figure out what to do and where to go. Both those attending the school during it’s final days and its graduates have been affected by this decision.
Many graduates are finding themselves stuck with student loan debt for a degree they aren’t able to use. Employers aren’t readily accepting a degree from a school that ceases to exist and this has caused a lot of hardship for many who once attended Anthem.
On top of the student loan debt, students are also finding that a majority of their credits from the school aren’t transferrable to other institutions. This leaves some with very few options and others having to quit school altogether.
The U.S. cited an internal school memo which claims Anthem aimed to enroll students with little support system, those with low self-esteem and disadvantaged individuals. Minnesota attorney General Lori Swanson states, “The school misrepresented many things to them.”
Swanson claims that Anthem’s graduates weren’t qualified to be radiological technologists or even work in hospitals.
“The school offered an x-ray operate degree, but not the normal degree you have to become a x-ray operator in a hospital,” Swanson adds. “Students didn’t know that and thought it was a degree that would lead to gainful employment.”
Anthem filed for bankruptcy so the state is not able to sue them for the restitution however, federal programs are available to those with student loan debt who were affected by the fraud of this school.
