Michelle, please see my comments posted today, we all REALLY should look into a class action law suit.
I agree with the class action law suit against united travel schools. I attended in 1988 and graduated . They never did offer job placement and then I found out they went bankrupt. With all the money they collected from all the students who attended, they had a gold mine. However, the person or persons who owned or ran the business obviously hit the lottery. This school was a sham. I had students loans up the wazoo and they got there money when I filed my taxes every year until it was paid off. Class action lawsuit would be the right step but who do we sue? No one knows what or where to go. Any suggestions?

Anyone have any information regarding the closing of this school? It had another entity entitled United Schools, Truck Master. l atteneded the school on 32 Hercules in Clearwater when it closed. Any help would be grately appreciated. Ken Davis, Detroit MI
United Schools had several corporations listed under their name. United Truck Master, United Institute of Technology or UTI and United Travel Schools. The company filed bankruptcy through the Tampa Florida Bankruptcy Court. I believe that United Truck Master was bought out by Truck Master which still operates out of the Tampa Fairgrounds. The company was also affiliated with Pittsburgh Technical Institute or PTI. I believe they all closed when they filed bankruptcy. The original company ran there offices out of Clearwater Florida on US Highway 19. You may want to contact the Tampa Bankruptcy court in Florida. Hope this helps.

I also am a victim of the this horrible nightmare ! I attended in May 1988 and now some company is after me for the money. Which more than tripled. They took my income tax this year after not hearing form them in almost 24 years ! I contacted the Attorney General's office in Florida and she was not help. Told me to contact DOE or get an attorney. Yeah what ever. Anyone got any info about this ?

Those of you who are still looking for a way out of your school loan from United Travel School - LOOK AT THE PREVIOUS POST #81 from Charles (April 21, 2012). He seems to have figured a way out!

for everyone out there who participated in a correspondence type course from United schools inc. after 1986 on a federal ffel(stafford subsidized or unsubsidized) and a couple other type loans and the school closed down while you were enrolled, and your loan was with the dept. of education please request a school closure dismissal application because there is a special rule for this school and 8 others here are the closure dates of united schools inc., united truckmaster or other locations 9.)

I too attended the school on Hercules, in Clearwater in 1987 and "attempeted" complete the computer portion in March 1988, but it had already closed. They also stated right in their contract that the offer Job Placement service and that it impossible when they closed before we could even graduate. This has got to be FRAUD.
My wife and I attended the school in October 1988, so it was open later than March then you state.
