Colo. attorney general probes 51 complaints against Westwood College

March 24, 2010

The Colorado attorney general's office is investigating 51 complaints against Westwood College in the past three years from students and parents who say they were misled about prices and credit transfers.

The complaints were broad, but most alleged lack of transparency in tuition costs and that the school was not straightforward about the ability for credits to transfer, according to attorney general spokesman Mike Saccone.

Westwood College, which has 17,000 students, is based in Denver but has students from all over the country enrolled in online classes.

A Westwood spokesman said he had not received any information from the attorney general's office about the complaints. Complaints to the state attorney general are not a public record.
