If you were a student at Ashworth College, you may be entitled to recover some of your money. Ashworth College has agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission (FTC) charges that it misrepresented to students that they would receive training and credentials needed to switch careers or get a new job, when, in reality, many programs at the college did not meet state requirements for those careers, and claims made about credit transfers were false. The FTC claimed that some degrees and programs offered by the college failed to meet the basic educational requirements set by state licensing boards for careers or jobs such as real estate appraisers, home inspectors, elementary school educators, massage practitioners and others. The FTC went on to claim that the college claimed that its credits would transfer even though it lacked data that other colleges and universities would accept them. The court order against the college prohibits Ashworth from making the following misrepresentations:
Course credits are generally recognized by, and accepted, by other postsecondary institutions
There will be job security or steady employment for consumers completing its programs
Ashworth’s programs provide all the training and credentials required to switch careers or obtain a job in a new field
Completing Ashworth’s program will qualify students to obtain vocational licenses without any additional training or experience
