Received an email that if a student even steps foot in the classroom, they are to be marked present. Is that practice kind of the same as where the funny numbers for placement originate?

As a former employee of Heald College, I promise you that the college did not care about you. To the college, you were no more than $4500 in tuition. Some of the instructors and staff did care--some of them were wonderful and devestated when Heald... — read more
Just read an article that states a company is buying Heald's name and other intellectual property. Just curious what would be the reason for doing so at this point in the game?

Good luck to all. I worked for a school that was also over 100 years old. It took CCI to sink that ship also. We fought for our integrity and most lost their jobs within the first 2 years. Sympathy for the loss of what used to be a good school.
What was the little" lunch check" that heald gave us today? Just received it in the mail today and confirmed that others received it too.

I found Jack's house with a little digging. Apparently the closing of Heald and all of the other colleges is hurting him too. Rumor has it that he put it on the market for $11.5 million. I hope he cashed his severance check!! 389 E Boulderville Rd... — read more
Hello Faculty, As you may or may not be aware Corinthian College filed bankruptcy on Monday. Due to the filing, any checks (including payroll) that were cut and not cashed prior to 5/4/2015 are no longer valid and will not be honored by your bank. On... — read more
I just spoke to a Prudential Rep and he stated that tomorrow, the "active" status will flip and we will be able to have access to our funds for whatever we deem fit for said funds.
I was told this from a recruiter I am working with. We whitewashed my Heald work. Saying I was a stay at home mom caring for kids. Do not put this Heald or Everest work on a resume. Good luck.
For non-payment of wages? Anyone know anything?
This Heald board is as dead as the activity in their parking lots.
If the student drop from school, the school needs to follow the department of education process called return of title 4. The student needs to follow the program to graduate on time and to only borrow the cost estimated for that program. A student... — read more

I heard this from a coworker. Why didn't the school communicate this to adjuncts? WTF?
My paycheck cleared and I signed up online for unemployment. Sad about it all, but what the heck. Still think Jack is a prick, hope he gets busted, Jon, head of academics is a lying f*** and Carla, MAERB mentor, is a dipshit.
I am one of the affected students of Heald's closing and I am completely upset with the options available in regard to transferring to other schools. I chose Heald because I didn't see those other schools as real options for me. The majority of them... — read more
Heald students: if you're in a situation in which not many of your credits will transfer and you will be starting almost from scratch, take the loan discharge. However, if you find a program that will accept most of your credits and you will be able... — read more
I would strongly recommend you avoid for-profits schools in your futures. On Monday a couple of for-profits were allowed in the school to attempt to recruit students, and I overhead some of the their bullshit spiel. They bad-mouthed community... — read more
Never forget, never surrender.
before the week Heald closed, I went to talk to Career Service, and they said even if Heald Closes, career service will be there to help students find job. Does it mean they were trying to give me Jack's Pink Underwear.
I've seen many students supporting Heald throughout this scandal. This honestly baffles me. Current students are being dropped from an education they have worked very hard to get through, graduated students are losing the life long job placement that... — read more
