"I'm a little angry," said Dottie King, college president.

You wouldn't like her when she's angry.

what_now: Without reading this derp, I'm going to assume that the college violated the Program Participation Agreement, which very very clearly lays out what degree granting or certificate granting programs the the school can offer ED funding for, and where the facilities are physically located.

Adding an online program to your school is fine. Offering students in that program federal loans and grants requires advance certification from the Department of Education.

By the way, DeVry University is fully certified by the ED, because they went through the proper steps.

My last employer, a 150 year old research university in Boston, just had the same screw up- they were offering funding to certificate programs without adding those programs to the PPA.

That's not allowed, for OBVIOUS reasons.


So are you going to read the article?

When a Catholic lady named "Dottie" says she's "a little angry," stand back.

SpdrJay: Donnchadha: DanZero: They're screwing more than boys out of their money?

/here all week and all that, I hear the veal's pretty good

That's funny because all Catholics are child molesters!!

I thought it was just the clergy...


Why do you think the non-clergy are known as laity?

GilRuiz1: zorlack7: Catholic college... Lol

There's over 1,300 of them in the world, and they pretty much invented the idea back in Medieval times; what's wrong with that?


Nope. LIke most things in the European Renaissance, they were catching up to the Muslims.

Nah, they just support an organization that explicitly protects pedophiles. And yes, they should feel terrible for it.

flak attack: Eats the expense from what? They either charge the past students and screw them over, or take it from their endowments and screw over current and future students. This isn't a for profit corporation where they can take a loss on profits and cover it. Either way, someone is getting screwed.


??

How would a university "charge the past students "?

And by your definition, any expense to the school is an unfair charge to students.

Amazing how people leap out of the woodwork to defend child rape. Unbelievable.

Is the fact that the college is Catholic and old supposed to make me feel any sympathy I might otherwise not?

I trust the DOE will also refund all the loan payments made by these students, and cancel their remaining debt once it gets its $42 million in hand too.

edmo: students have not paid for their classes. So the school will need to charge the students.

This does nothing to the school but should hammer the students very well.


Unless the school does the right thing and eats the expense.

Prolly too Christian for them, though
