Join the WCI/LCB Tuition Refund Lawsuit. Seek Your Refund.

10 years of fighting WCI/LCB Portland in court revealed evidence that the school misled prospective students by: (1) using fake placement rates; (2) not disclosing that most graduates earned poverty wages; (3) saying that it was elite and selective; and (4) not telling you about its deal with Sallie Mae that increased what you paid by up to 44 percent.
