First post here. Been lurking awhile...
I was wondering has anyone had any luck obtaining a refund from The College Network who were attempting the prereqs for Indiana State? I have read that TCN will refund your money if you are not accepted into ISU--to me sounds like you have to complete all the prereqs, apply then get rejected, because ISU is no longer a CA BRN approved school.
Have a couple of friends in the same boat, they have been told to keep working and it should be worked out by the time they are ready to enroll...which is bs in my humble opinion.
Anyone else have luck getting through to the college network, I wait on hold too long, get upset and hang up...or do you know a direct number?
My mistake. You are talking about ISU not TCN. Since ISU continues to discuss the issues, you still have time to take any action you wish. What I have seen is ISU will discuss settlement if you send a certified by mail with return receipt Demand Letter to them demanding (what do you want?) full refund, full refund of all fees and tuition, or? I have a friend who has posted here who did this and ISU is talking to her offering only refund of her tuition--no book, testing fees, etc. She wants all fees, etc and it taking the issues to a different California venue. Now that the California BRN has stated that ISU was NOT AUTHORIZED TO OPERATE A NURSING SCHOOL IN CALIFORNIA because it partnered with a non-authorized nursing program, and ISU's program did not have concurrent didactic with clinical program making the clinical students labled as practicing nursing without a license and guilty of a misdemenor, possibly ISU will change their refund policy.
BTW any out of state (aka foreign) business who does business in Calif had to have a person or company located within Calif to receive service of legal papers. If it did not set up an agent before it did business, then the company cannot defend itself. You may wish to check with the California Secretary of State's office to see if ISU is a registered out of state/foreign entity eligible to do business in Calif.
