Timeline of Events
Westwood College was founded in Denver, Colorado, in 1953. For many years, the school was known as Denver Institute of Technology
Veterans Administration disqualified three Westwood College Campuses from the GI Bill Program. The VA took this step after finding, “erroneous, deceptive, and misleading advertising and enrollment practices at these institutions.”
Illinois Attorney General, Lisa Madigan, filed a lawsuit citing misleading job opportunities for its criminal justice program.
Westwood settled a federal lawsuit over misrepresentation of its graduation statistics for $7 million, without admitting wrongdoing
The Colorado Attorney General’s office reached a settlement with the college in 2012, following a two-year investigation. As part of the agreement, the college did not admit any liability and agreed to pay the state $2 million
Westwood settled the suit in 2015 after failing to have the case dismissed. Westwood agreed to pay $15 million toward the loans of their criminal justice students. Shortly thereafter the college ceased admitting new students and announced that it would close in March 2016.
During the most recent lawsuit, Westwood College must pay $15 Million in Student Loans, and are closing their doors.
If you attended the Westwood College, regardless of when you attended, you may qualify for partial or even full loan forgiveness.
I'm so glad I found this website! After attending Westwood College, I wasn't able to find a job in my field and got stuck with over 30 grand in loans. Thankfully, I'm now paying $0/month and will have my loans forgiven at the end of the term! Thanks guys!Carly Young, Dallas

My student loan payments went from $423 a month to $0 a month, and after 10 years of paying nothing they get forgiven. This is amazing!Mark Levin, Wisconsin
