I am a PHD student, I completed my comprehensive exam (All but dissertation (ABD)) and in the process of doing my dissertation courses. The University does not care about students.

All what care about is money. Forced me to stay with Chair that I don't like. Students are their second priority. When I asked the

Deception: Never informed student when they start their PhD program that the failing rate is 50% (even you complete you ABD).

Graduate school dean informed that the rate of failure is 50%. Most of these students quit after paying the full tuition. You don't have anyone to talk to, if you have any issue. Very disappointed from NorthCentral University.

I am going through *** and no one seems to care.

I already spent more than $70k completed all my credits (60) and did not even completed my concept paper..... Stay away from NCU...

I have experienced the exact same thing with regards to hitting a huge roadblock in the Concept Paper phase. I'm sick of it.

I created an anonymous email address in an attempt to organize others who have encountered similar experiences with NCU.

I plan to consult with an attorney to see what we might be able to do as far as class action. If you are at all interested in participating in a suit of that kind, please email me at:
