I've been contacted by Academic Aid Center because they said there are lawsuits against for profit colleges like University of Phoenix. I was ripped off by UofP and have $18,000 in student loans with no degree because UofP kicked me out of classes for failing a test due to their faulty software. Since i was ripped off and do have debt, they say they can gey my loans dismissed through the lawsuit. Anyone have experience with this situation? I Hope I didn't get scammed. I'm a single Mom of a disabled child living paycheck to paycheck,  I can't afford to be scammed. Academic Aid Center is charging me $899. Any info On this? I still have time to back out, just signed today.
