Vent alert!!!! I was really enjoying my program with Aspen but some events of late have started to sour me somewhat. First there is the runaround I've been getting about my referral bonus check. I've been told everything from: it's being mailed on the X of the month, it was mailed late, it's being mailed this week, it's being mailed soon...... all apparently untrue. I have completed several courses with the school. I recently enrolled in my next one and received an email stating that "the following courses require that you purchase lecture notes for $75." I could see some courses requiring them but the list I was sent had just about every course in my program listed including several classes that I've already taken and passed with top grades without these notes. At no time during those past courses was I told that these notes were available, let alone mandatory for my program. My getting As in every class without them speaks volumes about their value. It sounds like such a crock to me. Thanks for letting me vent.
