OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Nearly 200 students of a Kansas-based college have joined a lawsuit that accuses the school of fraud.

A local newspaper reports the lawsuit against Wright Career College was filed last year but amended recently to add 195 more students. The current and former students attended Wright’s campuses in Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma.

The lawsuit states the private, nonprofit college enticed student to enroll and apply for student loans that they can’t pay back. It also claims Wright deceived students about attendance costs and employment prospects.

An attorney representing the college called the allegations “absurd.” She says the college offers resources for student success and has never promised or guaranteed employment after graduation.
