GLOBALLEARN ONLINE LPN-RN SCAM BUSINESS
I saw an advertisement on the internet for online Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to Registered Nurse (RN) program through Globallearn. I filled out the request info form and was contacted by email by their representative Mr. Lawrence Bowlin. He told me about the two program options available which is Associated of Science in Nursing (ASN) and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). He told me Globallearn would accept one’s course credit as far back as 30 years. I faxed over all my transcripts to him and he put together a contract for the BSN detailing what courses I needed to take with Globallearn in Phase 1 before doing Phase 2 with Indiana State University online. On 3/31/16, I signed a contract for the BSN Phase 1 program costing $3179.50 which was supposed to be deducted from my account in installments through their loan company, a Credit Union in Florida called WeFlorida Financial Credit Union. A few weeks into the program, I changed to the ASN program which was a shorter program. The Phase 2 of this ASN program was to be done through Excelsoir College. I signed a new contract on 4/12/16 for the ASN Phase 1 program with Globallearn which cost $7244.00. I was then given credit for my course work at other prior colleges for my Anatomy 1 and Anatomy 2, Microbiology and other courses which meant I did not have to redo them at Globallearn. The only course I needed to take with Globallearn was Intro to world religions before entering into the Phase 2 with Excelsoir College and that cost me $7244.00. I was told that Phase 1 was a flat fee irrespective of how many classes you take (whether more or less). So just one class Intro to World Religions cost $7244.00, which will be way cheaper in a community college. But they sell you lies and you are quickly “conned” into making a decision without thinking through things.
I was also told by Globallearn that I was responsible for my application into Excelsoir College. So therefore I inquired from Excelsoir College about the admission process for Phase 2 of the ASN program and it was then that they told me if my science courses mainly Anatomy 1 & 2 and Microbiology was past 5 yrs from the time I took it, Excelsoir would not even consider me for admission. Meanwhile Globallearn did not tell me any of this. When I called Globallearn back regarding the Anatomy/Microbiology issue and that Excelsoir College told me I would not be considered for admission, Ashley the representative I spoke to, quickly realizing that they had misinformed me, offered to change me back to BSN program with Indiana State University Online where it was not going to be an issue. She sent me the change forms on 4/25/16 to sign and I sent back the signed forms the same day. I called later and asked Ashley if the price had also changed from &7244.00 ASN rate to $3179.50 BSN rate. She told me she will do some research and get back to me. Up until now Globallearn is ignoring me and I keep sending emails back and forth for this simple fee change so their loan servicer WeFlorida Financial bank could deduct the right amount of fees from my automatic bank payments. I was first of all I was lied to by Globallearn and deceived into believing that Excelsoir College will take my science courses and then misinformed into signing a contract with Globallearn and not getting what I thought I was going to get in the first place. If I knew that Anatomy/Microbiology was going to be an issue with Excelsoir College I would not have signed into the ASN program. (had I not called Excelsoir, I would not have known the truth) Secondly, after Globallearn realizing I had caught on their SCAM and offering to change me back to BSN refuse to do my fee adjustment for BSN program of $3179.50 and choose to keep charging me the ASN rate $7944.00. I have email documents showing the program change on 4/25/16 and other email showing their refusal to adjust the fees and keep giving me different excuses and stories. All I am asking Globallearn is to adjust my fee to BSN rate instead of charging me ASN rate because I signed documents on 4/25/16 changing programs to that effect.
Do fee adjustment for BSN program
