Yes, it likely is CTU Online. Their recruiters can be relentless. I just finished my BS degree in September. Funny, but all the work I did and knowledge I gained didn't seem like a scam to me. I worked harder in this Bachelor's program than I ever did in my community college's Associate program. And I had the choice of whether I wanted to listen to teachers' bullmalarkey stories that didn't even relate to class. Something my hometown associates program didn't allow. No, I am not a recruiter. 5-1/2 week classes are hard, and you have to have a lot of self-discipline and time management skills to do it, not to mention iniative. Don't get ticked off at them if YOU can't set boundaries with them. They're just people.
eVERY DAY ALMOST ALL DAY, i GET CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER AND THEY HANG UP
After repeated calls where they didn't leave a message, I called them back. She was VERY rude! It is Colorado Technical University.
i called them back yesterday and they were looking for me and I was trying to get them to talk about what they have to offer so that I don't want them to know it was me, but that didn't work. They called back yesterday and again today and I'm getting annoyed by these fuckers! I WANT THEM DEAD!!!! ALL OF THESE ONLINE SCHOOLS DEAD!!!!!
called today, but did not leave a message on my recorder. I don't know who or what these folks are, but from the other comments here, it sounds like they are just another irritant...with no practive point or purpose.
STOP FUCKING CALLING ME!!! i dont need calls from this number im 12 i dont think im going to be going to tech college and if i did i wouldnt go there ok so for the second time S T O P CALLING ME U B I T C H
This is from an online form. My husband was checking into schools and put his number in for ONE school. Immediately he had several schools calling. The call all hours. We've had probably 20 calls in less than 2 days. The guy asked for my husband (like they knew each other). I said he wasn't home and he hung up on me. Rude, if you ask me!
Received call from caller unknown asking for someone else claiming they had my number listed as a new applicant and they keep calling after I told them there is no one here by that name
desde este numero recibo en telefono varias llamdas al dia desde hace un par de semana y no la contesto en el identificador aparece Roseelle Il
its a college recruiter folks.
If they would just notify me of this on the phone I might answer---instead it says unknown--first with this number and 2 seconds later with a complete unknown--no number at all.
Go here, and type in your e-mail, and it will remove you: http://info.ctuonline.edu/opt_out.asp
called,left no message.I chatted at the CTUonline.edu at the chat space on right side of page and the agent said she would remove my number,it may take a few days.
This number calls me all the time and usually 4 times a day. I wish they would stop!! They don't even leave a message!!
I will go to donotcall.gov and register them.
they keep calling at all times of the day and night, everyday. they call home phone and cell phone but never leave a message. we answered once and there was some type of recording.
This person randomly called &. I did not answer .
They called my home phone and business line. I picked up they asked my name in english so I respond in a Spanish "Es Enrique, Que dia es hoy" the best part, the caller started speaking slang to someone else in the office, then the same person calls both lines agin attempting to sound proper. You must bring your A-Game people. I told that freaking Education Connection agent I had already had a school of Choice and the bastard forwarded my number to these Jerks. It was funny at first,NOWSTOPCALLINGME!!!!

I too am getting hang up calls from this number. I was surfing web for info on going back to college in my hometown, no for online schools, but somehow I suddenly got all these calls from Colorado Tech and Kaplan and others within 5 minutes. I told them that I WAS NOT interested in online courses, but they keep calling. I hate that you get bombarded by calls and junk mail from everybody. They all tell me that they are calling because I requested info. They get your info when you look at a site that you ARE interested in, and start bugging you to buy something. And don't ever try one of those survey sites where you only have to take a "short" survey for free items! You'll have to go through so much junk, all they're doing is putting you on tons of other people's lists: the same lists you just spent months trying to get off of!
Colorado Technical University I believe they call from more than one location..
I called the number back and he was very nice and took info to put on their do not call list.
Numerous calls several times a day. No one answers. I am on do not call list.
it will not speak when i answer the phone and will not leave a message .will worry you to death....
I started receiving calls from these two numbers one month ago, 224-653-7000 and 847-783-8966
. I would get a call from one of the numbers and within 2 minutes the other number would call me. I think their dialers are set up to call the same people over and over.They also have my email address and sent me a bunch of spam thanking me for my interest in attending their school (which I hadn't filled anything out expressing interest in their school or anything else).
I answered one time and told the lady to stop calling my cell phone, they had already called me seven times that day. She said she was from Kaplan University. She was rude so I started cussing at her and being rude back and she hung up on me. Then I received an email confirmation that they placed me on their do not call list. The calls stopped for about a week and then they have started back up again...sooo annoying. I would change my number if I knew they wouldn't get my new one and start calling me there too.
its some scam university that wants your money. Just tell them you are not interested. They probably got your number from some job website or something.

I just told them to stop calling me or I will start being very rude and cursing them out every time they call. I have nothing better to do with my time. F off.
Called 5 times on Saturday, no messages.
This number has been calling me for almost 1 month. I did answer and made it clear that I wished nothing to do with them and I did not want them to call my number anymore. It stopped for about a week and now they are calling back twice a day, so I just pick the phone up and set it down near the TV and walk away. My line is usuallycklear in a minute or so and I recieve no further calls that day.
This number has called me 7 to 8 times over the past 3-4 days. Finally decided to answer it today and talked to a what sounded like a fairly nice, older African-American gentleman who said he was calling for a "Hey" or "Heyya". Told him it was a wrong number and he sounded apologetic. Wonder if it truly is someone from Colorado Tech Univ and a bot is spamming their call list, or if it is really m-spam...
Will see if they call again.
This company calls and does not leave a message. He calls every day on my cell phone. If I wanted to talk to him I would pick it up. It is getting anoying. Thanks I will use the donotcall.gov and report them.
Very creepy. Mans says he's from Italy looking to move here. Starts asking questions about area and people. His questions turn sexual and don't stop. He's called me 4 times in the last 6 hours.
Stop calling Mar 15th, 2009
There is a Google ad on this page for Colorado Tech University. The link allows you to fill out a request for information. You need to fill in all the fields but I bet it costs them something every time someone sends a request. For my name, I put 'Please StopCalling'. Email address: email@example.com I put their phone number as the primary number and for alternate phone, I put the number of another annoying telemarketer. You could call their admissions line 888-897-6555
. Fight back!

I have received these calls also. Annoying!
Suggestion- please visit https://www.donotcall.gov/ and register ALL numbers you have. Verify and confirm the requests via your e-mail account. E-mail may go to junk mail folder but if not verified, your number will not be registered. They have 31 days from date of request to not call. Please read all information and know your rights.
I visited the Colorado Technical University Website and chatted with an online rep who stated they will take me off of their school's list. These calls were most likely due to an online inquiry made to their websites.
If you are able to speak to someone from the 224-653-7000 number, request to be removed from their call list.
Final suggestion- file a complaint: https://www.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx
Hope this helps.
do not call Feb 19th, 2009
I just want them to stop if I wanted to talk to anyone with a number unknown I would have answered. Its annoying the minute I walk in the door at the end of a long day my phone starts ringing of the hook with theses numbers: 1-800-395-0479
, 224-653-7000, 1-888-210-7243
, and a few more that I am hoping gave up because I complained It has been 2 days who knows, maybe they just changed there number but continued to bother me.

FYI here is my email
Cc: 'firstname.lastname@example.org'; 'email@example.com'
We spoke when I phoned to ask you to remove my name from your list. You asked me to send you an email to request that. This is that email.
For the past 3 days I received numerous phone calls. The callers said that I had filled out an online form about further education (I did not), and that DegreeStreet had given them my personal details! I asked each caller to not call again, and they agreed, but I think it would be more efficient if we nipped this at the source, which seems to be your firm:
For your information here are the phone numbers of the callers I spoke with (plus one that was not listed at all)
"AIG member company"
"Colorado Technical Univ"
Thanks for pulling the plug on this."
Called my cell phone, left no message
Called 4 times today, once yesterday. Never left a message.
ctu online think its a school
