Consumer Action on ABC15 Phoenix!

Thursday, August 09, 2018


Did you catch Consumer Action’s Alegra Howard on ABC15 with Joe Ducey? Here are the resources she mentioned during the segment:

  • Want to weigh in on the Department of Education’s proposed rollback of student borrower protections? Learn more about the proposed changes and take action here.
  • Need help repaying your student loans? Our winter issue of Consumer Action News reviews your repayment options and alerts you to the common pitfalls associated with paying down your debt.
  • Thinking about enrolling in a job training or vocational program? Read our Guide to Finding the Right Job Training School. This guide is designed to help anyone considering a job training program or vocational school make an informed choice, avoid excessive or unwarranted student loan debt, and know where to turn if they believe they are a victim of for-profit school fraud. (Tip: start with your local community college first!)
  • Another great alternative to for-profit colleges are apprenticeships. Apprenticeships combine paid on-the-job training with classroom instruction to prepare students for highly-skilled careers. The U.S. Department of Labor has an apprenticeship webpage and the Arizona Department of Economic Security has an apprenticeship office, both of which can put you on the right path to learning more about these types of positions.
  • Looking to finance your education? Learn about your options, including the differences between federal and private student loans by checking out Consumer Action’s Student Loan and Education Resource List.
  • Were you a student at Art Institute? Unsure of your options after your campus closed? The Project on Predatory Student Lending can help.
