United States University, a for-profit institution located on Bay Boulevard in Chula Vista, has an uneven track record. Things have been improving for them of late —so why does a USU student have to hire an attorney to try resolve her dispute?
Celeste P. wanted to become a nurse. When she first started attending USU she had already accrued 60 units at Grossmont Community College. She initially only wanted to take a microbiology course at USU and then get on a waiting list for enrollment in the Grossmont Associated RN program. A USU academic advisor suggested she could earn both a Bachelor’s in Science and a Bachelor’s in Science Nursing at USU in a shorter amount of time than the degree at Grossmont. This sounded like a great opportunity to her.
