Also Needing My Diploma
Did anyone have luck being able to retrieve a copy of their Certificate or Diploma? I hadn't realized they had closed until recently when I tried to contact them to get a copy of my Interior Design Diploma:(

Need copy of Diploma
Hello, I am looking for a copy of my diploma from Granton. It would be an older one dating back 2000-2001, I am not sure of the date. I graduated with a diploma in Graphic Design and Studio Procedures. Even a pdf of the diploma would be good. Is this possible?

Granton Courses
Very interactive courses with great teachers! Too bad they have closed.

I had a positive experience.
I enrolled in 1989 with Granton. I took the HCA course. My lessons, tutors and feedback from them was exceptional. My education with them served me well as I went on to Mc Master U and graduated from their Nursing program. That was almost 30 yrs. ago, in fact l will soon be taking my retirement. I empathise with all these present day students who have been shafted. Contact everyone you can to try and rectify your personal situation. I hope you all get and deserve a better chance at advancing your careers.

They are arrogant and rude!!!!
I enrolled with a few courses over a couple of years in the mid '90's. I tried again in early 2000 and they said on the phone..."Hmmmmm you have a history with us. Can't process your application" They made me feel like a low class citizen!!

I am having issues with them as well, i know where you are coming from. They recently sent me to collections fo money that i dont owe. I was hoping that maybe you could help me out, I registered with them in 2007 for the "corporate Business management and administration course" I am looking for someone that would possibly have the course book that they sent out when they were still "Granton Institue of Technology" I am needing to know the full cost of my course. Please help me...

The tuition for the course you were enrolled in was $7140.00 payable with $85 on enrollment and 83 monthly payments of $85 each or $5712 (with payment in full or company purchase order on enrollment). I hope this helps.

Has anyone that completed their course received their transcripts. I did not receive one and I want to find out how I can get mine. Any ideas?

Sad in Toronto
The problems described in these letters fill me only with sadness and sympathy. I was a former tutor at the Granton Institute. Although that organization may have had a few problems, I can attest that its tutors were for the most part genuinely concerned for the ongoing success and education of their students. Very few of the former tutors remained with the new GrantonTech. Numbers did not receive wages owing when the change occurred. The newest incarnation of the long-standing Granton name sounds like a real abomination.

Me in Nova Scotia
My wife was taking a course through this school and then the school was bought out. Now it's called Granton Tech and it's a joke.

We told them we were changing banks and should not attempt to use the old banking information to make withdrawals. They ignored the information and tried to withdraw from the old account for the next three months!!!! Now, my old account (which was in overdraft) wants us to pay over $120 in NSF.

My wife says she has to wait and wait for course material, sometimes for five months. These are arrogant, ignnorant individuals, don't deal with this school!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so what happens to the money that was paid for tuition? i was also a current student with granton . i stop receiving notices for payments and i tried calling the phone number to find out if my account was still active cause i havent heard from them and the phone number was no longer in service. my program is not completed and i want to have my money worth. do we get reinbursed or what? this would affect my credit right cause its unpaid dues but the school is out of business so what to do

Granton Tech
I'm a former student of the Granton Institute in Toronto... dealing with Granton Tech who took over has been a nightmare, and it seems to be more of a scam than anything else. The woman I've dealt with is useless and continues to send me garbage rather than "real" course material, and they expect me to give them my credit card info to grade past submissions?? Beware of this place, something is not right...

Granton Institute of Technology/Granton Tech
To anyone enrolled in this school, please cover your tracks.
For those of you whho have enrolled in the old "granton Institute of Technology" and have yet to receive either any refund requested, diploma or certificate, contact the Better Business Bureau of Canada. This school has been forced out of operation (as well as Granton Tech) by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, Canada) If you go to the Ministry page, you can read the exact documents brought against them. I completed my courses with Granton, paid over $1000.00 in full, and they have avoided my calls for 6 months now. They now are under Hong Kong's laws, as they were forced to cease operations in Canada. DO NOT ENROLL in GRANTON TECH!
