Somebody is Coming to Town (San Diego)and it is not Santa Clause

KS, campus director will not be yelping GOOD Morning San Diego. She rode the gift sleigh for way to long. Its time for that snake to get skinned because her venomous bite has left its mark on too many. Her protected cronies need to sliver on behind her as they have been earning way to much for way too long without adding value to the campus, students or University as a whole. She has no ethics nor does she know the law regarding what can be done or requested of her employees. She Captained the ship during calm seas. She does not have the ability or the faith of the crew to navigate during difficult times. She will slide in to her Captains Quarters when the waves get big and the waves are going to get big. She hides during difficult times so don't expect to see her now. When given the chance speak up.

Go to thread ReDirecting Focus------- New Agenda, Saturday 07/19/14 18:50:02 UTC

UoP will soon stop "educating" "students" ---the money flow is going to stop.

UoP will, change its name and focus on helping students get out of their student debt obligations, for a fee of course. Because the UoP graduates don't earn substantial money they will qualify for reduced payments as low as zero $ monthly based on income based repayment. UoP will charge the student to help them get out of paying back the money they borrowed to funnel to UoP. "Rape the system twice" that should be the Mission Statement of the Sperling Regime

The fact is the Department of Education is scared of this organization. They will never do anything because too many people have been paid off.

BO has been labeled the worst president of all time and all of us on the board just laugh at this imbecile trying to make waves. This would be like the DOE and BO sitting at the controls of a wave making machine at a water park trying to tip over a cruise ship. Nothing is going to happen to this organization. The only thing that is going to happen is that we are going to take more money and stuff our pockets full of Title IV funding because we can. Just try to stop us you Nancies.

Half of the WFS will be laid off by the end of the quarter.

Some of the layoffs started this week and the rest will happen by the end of the quarter. This is inline with the Earnings Call from about a year ago when Cappelli declared the business would cut about $900million in cost to be "more efficient". Its getting too the point where there is very little to trim. When the REG's don't increase what will they do then?

It is funny when an investigation into federal aid practices are such a norm now that APOL calls it a normal review.

This company never ceases to amaze me. The norm would be to never be under investigation like real schools.

table. The DOE is no longer going to tolerate the behavior of these for profit diploma mills / welfare recipient ATM Machines. This will be Corinthian part two. You have been warned enough times, now you will face your own demise. This is coming straight from the top.

Get some power

BY collectively negotiating, not just pay but work conditions, you can help stop the micro management and harassing bs to get recommendations. Of course UoP is against Unions but this is the time to act while they are fighting the other battles. You would be helping yourselves, students(real ones) and Ultimately the reputation of the school.

Go to thread Why Have For-Profit Colleges Been in the News Recently?, Tuesday 07/08/14 19:53:28 UTC

Resources from the non-profit collaborative Protect Students and Taxpayers

Investigations by the federal government, media, and States Attorneys General ​have revealed countless instances of unscrupulous for-profit colleges (particularly those that are run by large, publicly-traded companies), engaging in deceptive, aggressive and manipulative tactics to enroll as many students as possible, without regard for their potential for success or ability to afford tuition, in an effort to maximize profits. The wealth of sources included on NACAC's Program Integrity page describe how these colleges have adversely impacted students and the taxpayers that fund federal and state financial aid. Additionally, the exhaustive report For Profit Higher Education: The Failure to Safeguard the Federal Investment and Ensure Student Success includes the findings of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pension's two year investigation of the for-profit sector. http://www.nacacnet.org/issues-action/LegislativeNews/Pages/For-Profit-Colleges.aspx

Experts in public Relations Spin

If you have been following UoP in the news for 5 years or more and heard their responses to criticism you would likely have enough Prior Learning Assessment credit for a PHD in how to Spin a negative into a positive. UoP is great at spinning facts as if they care about students. They don't! They always have a response that sounds plausible but the reality is they do not deliver educational results, do not change lives (for the better)or challenge students.Learning teams are their unique trait which is a failure as it lacks educational integrity. They use integrity in their mission statement all the while sending Apollo marketing people to second chance group homes of recently released convicts or drug users. What other schools would recruit such people aggressively- just those schoolsconcerned with making money They enroll students that are near their aggregate financial aid limits that are nowhere near close to be near completing a degree. Adding more debt to a student that wont be able to complete their program unless they get outside scholarships.( not likely for students with a 2.0 gpa ).UoP will paint the picture it is possible. The old Matrix rewarded enrollment starts and had no concern for retention. The mentality still exists with enrollment managers today. UoP will tell a different story one that benefits themselves... Keep watching the spin it is amusing in addition to being sickening...

Asked to Resign

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/videos/#107787 let me preface this thread by saying that I am not a bitter employee at all. In fact, I am blessed to have been let go. I can now concentrate on my graduate degree (NOT from UOP). Garland mentioned how the service members come to UOP for services....THEY come to us he says several times. The potential students are called from the call center 10 times in a hour or until someone picks up the phone and then are transferred to a recruiter who is responsible for "engaging" the student (that means get them enrolled or else) by asking a lot of personal questions and try to really get that motivation. The idea is that the motivation is used when he or she decides that UOP is not for them. I recently was let go of UOP. I worked as a Military Advisor in the Midwest. Recruiters have to constantly ask on every call for referrals from the family members. Employees are "coached" if conversions or numbers do not meet expectations. Managers will employ the help from their direct reports to send out emails that are directed towards individuals who are not making "double digit" referrals. UOP use to have standards when I enrolled into their college(6 months later became an employee). A candidate had to be at least 24 years old, work full-time, and had to pass several proficiencies in English and math.

COCO declaring bk, ITT funding cut - they will be done within a month - Devry an APOL will follow fairly quickly after this now that the Obama

Administration has a taste of blood after devouring COCO within 2 weeks of cutting off funding. Updated July 2, 2014 6:42 p.m. ET ITT Educational Services Inc., ESI -2.97% a big operator of for-profit schools, Wednesday warned it could face restricted funding from the U.S. government for failing to file timely financial reports. ITT, which had 57,000 students as of March, said it might be subject to heightened scrutiny and loss of federal funding because it missed a Monday deadline to file its 2013 financial statement and a compliance audit with the Department of Education. The company has been in "ongoing communication with the Department" of Education, which recognized the documents would be delayed, ITT spokeswoman Nicole Elam said. ITT operates more than 130 campuses and runs Daniel Webster College in Nashua, N.H. Related For-Profit Colleges Face Test From Washington Corinthian Colleges Warns of Possible Shutdown Shares of ITT fell 3% to $16.36 on Wednesday. The stock is down more than 50% so far this year. The news comes as rival Corinthian Colleges Inc. COCO -3.67% —which warned last month it was on the brink of collapse—works toward an agreement with the U.S. government to facilitate the sale or winding down of its campuses. Corinthian Colleges and the Department of Education missed a Tuesday deadline to agree on an operating plan for the troubled for-profit educator, although both parties said a deal could be reached within days. The crisis at Corinthian began when the Department of Education put a 21-day hold on the school's access to federal funding, following several attempts to get information from it regarding recruitment and marketing methods. The industry has been under increased pressure of late, as several companies face federal and state probes into issues such as marketing and recruiting methods, as well as whether they push students into high-cost loans. The Obama administration is expected to toughen rules that could end federal aid to for-profit schools whose students have high default rates or have accumulated heavy debt loads. Corinthian receives $1.4 billion a year in federal financial aid and said it couldn't survive a delay. The company and the Department of Education are working on finalizing a plan either to sell or wind down all its 107 schools in the next six months. Recent action by the Department of Education should indicate to investors that "the department is prepared to be incredibly strict with their enforcement actions," Wells Fargo Securities Senior Analyst Trace Urdan said on Wednesday. However, ITT appears to be in a stronger position financially than Corinthian, Mr. Urdan said. If the Department of Education issued the same 21-day hold on ITT's federal funding, "it wouldn't precipitate the crisis you saw with Corinthian," he added. Michael Tarkan, an analyst with Compass Point Research & Trading, in Washington, added that while the schools are in different financial positions "the language in (ITT's) filing this morning suggests additional oversight and sanctions could be forthcoming, and investors should take these issues more seriously now given what we have seen from Corinthian." ITT said in a regulatory filing Wednesday that its delay is the result of having to restate certain procedures on how it accounts for the liabilities and assets of a private student-loan program. It is working to complete the financial statements by July 31. For missing the deadline, the company said, the Department of Education could place its funding under monitoring, seek a letter of credit or revoke its eligibility for Title-IV federal student aid. The disclosure marks the latest development regarding ITT's student-lending practices. The federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau sued ITT in February, claiming the company compelled students to take out high-interest loans. The Department of Education couldn't be reached for comment.

A day in the life of an Enrollment Manager

9am – Show up to work. 9:10 am – Team where are we with recco’s and reg’s? 9:15am – EA approaches a manager with a concern, “Well, you know Shauna doesn’t have a computer, her phone seldom works, has really no transportation, but she really wants to take online classes though. I really love this student she is just so sweet. I really think that I can help her.” Manager response, “We need to make sure that we are setting her up for success so you really need to call her at three times in a week to make sure that she is posting.” 9:20am - Team where are we with recco’s and reg’s? 10:00am - Enrollment Manager logs into mypay to see his $125,000 paycheck. 10:15am - Team where are we with recco’s and reg’s? 10:30 am – EA approaches a manager with a concern, “Well, you know Tony is a convicted felon, doesn’t have a computer, he has to report to his P.O. and he has really no transportation, but he really wants to take local campuses classes to open a business one day. He really thinks that he can benefit from college after all he is 48 and a lot of street experience. I think that we can help save him! I think he is just so sweet. I really think that I can help him.” Manager response, “We need to make sure that we are setting him up for success so you need to schedule him for local campus class make sure that three days do not go by without voice to voice.” Great job, EA! You’re really saving lives.” 10:45am - Team where are we with recco’s and reg’s? ………. Management gets paid to be micro managers. They micro manage because they need those reg’s to keep their 100K paycheck!
