TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Kathy Robertson wants to become a certified medical assistant. However, after finishing most of her course at Rasmussen College, she found out they’re not even accredited in her program.
She has spent 12 months and $15,000 only to find out that she won’t be able to take the certification test she wants, to get the job she needs. The medical assisting program is a new program at Rasmussen. A school spokesperson says they’re not sure when they will be certified. Now students must decide whether to graduate and put their career at a halt, or transfer.
Robertson and three other students have already dropped the program and are still waiting to hear if they’ll receive their tuition money back.
