Skapik Law Group has been litigating this class action matter for over 2 years. The matter is currently in arbitration as the Superior and Appellate Courts have determined that the arbitration clause in the Enrollment Agreement (EA) or Retail Installment Contract (RIC) requires this case to be litigated in Arbitration instead of in a court of law with a judge and jury. The arbitration clause is buried in the language in the EA and the RIC.
The lawsuit alleges that the school misrepresented passage rates, employment rates, graduation rates and other aspects of the school’s education to prospective and enrolled students. SLG has received many calls from currently enrolled students supporting these allegations, as well as additional concerns relating to misrepresentations made about the GPA that a student must maintain to stay in the school. SLG has received numerous complaints that many 3rd year students are failing out of school after spending over $120,000.00, for their schooling, because they are receiving a grade below 90%. Though the catalog states that a student must maintain a GPA of a 2.0 or 70%., the school is now expelling students who have a GPA above 2.0 but have received a grade in a class below 90%. Apparently the school has now created a new policy that anything below 90% is now failing. SLG is currently investigating these allegations.
