Program Information

Student Loan Scam

Posted on February 05, 2016

Dear Alaska Career College Students and Graduates,
It has come to our attention that and perhaps other websites are reaching out to ACC students and graduates with false and misleading information about student loan forgiveness and debt management. They are contacting by text and by email messages and through social media.
This website has purposefully misrepresented information about ACC, as well as other responsible upstanding institutions in Alaska as well as across the US.
I am writing to you to clarify the services offered to EVERY student loan borrower by the US Department of Education and Alaska Career College.
NEVER believe an organization will help you when they charge you a membership fee and/or reoccurring monthly charges for help with your student loan repayment. When contacting this organization they wanted to charge a membership fee and a percentage of the student loan debt on a monthly basis …for them to help with deferments or forbearances in the event you are struggling to make loan payments. This would be in addition to the required student loan payment to the lender. The Federal Government Student Loan program will ALWAYS help you AND will not charge you special fees to do so.  Life happens sometimes….if you ever struggle with student loan payments because of medical issues or unemployment or other financial issues …. Call your lender. They will work with you to ease your burden. If you cannot remember your lender call ACC.
REMEMBER ACC is a partner with IONTUITION. IONTUITION is our student loan borrower associate. They will reach out to you on behalf of Alaska Career College. They are the good guys!! As an ACC student loan borrower, be sure to load their app on your mobile device and computer. You can check out their site at They have some really cool stuff and a reward program available to ACC students and graduates. Their purpose it to help our student loan borrowers remain in “good standing” with their loans  AND they will NEVER charge you a fee.
DON’T BELIEVE ALL THAT YOU READ TO BE TRUE.  The website states an ACC student borrowed over $30,000 in student loans. Quite frankly this is impossible as the maximum federal student loan availability for ACC programs is $20,000. This website also implies ACC did nothing to help a student with job placement assistance. You know this is not true…. And if you feel you are not receiving enough job placement support …. Contact me personally.
Alaska Career College is proud of our heritage in providing quality career education to Alaskans and Alaskan employers since 1985. We continue to exceed expectations of the state of Alaska, Accrediting Commissions, Federal Aviation Administration, and the US Department of Education in program completion, graduation rates and employment. We are also proud that our student loan borrowers exceed the federal student loan repayment rate.
I value your insight and suggestions to tell this story to others. Please feel free to contact me directly if you need assistance or would like additional information.
Jennifer Deitz,
President and Founder
