NEW YORK, April 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Harwood Feffer LLP ( www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims on behalf of current and former students of Technical Career Institutes (“TCI”) in New York.
On April 2, 2015, The New York Times published an article reporting that the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs has served subpoenas on TCI in connection with potentially abusive recruiting practices, predatory student lending, and dishonest marketing. According to the article, TCI is being investigated because it is one of a handful of for-profit schools that have particularly high rates of student loan default and students have complained about recruitment practices. More than 77% of TCI’s revenue is derived from federal student aid and TCI’s recent three-year student cohort default rates have exceeded permissible levels.
Our investigation concerns whether TCI has violated state or federal law in connection with the foregoing.
If you or someone you know is a current or former student of TCI and would like to discuss this matter with us, or have any questions concerning your rights and interests with regard to this matter, please contact:
