VA Disqualifies Three Campuses to Protect GI Bill Students

This is a partial article from Military Advantage Blog written by Terry Howell. You can find the full article here.

The Depart­ment of Vet­er­ans Affairs recently dis­qual­i­fied three West­wood Col­lege cam­puses in Texas from receiv­ing GI Bill funds in an effort to pro­tect prospec­tive vet­eran stu­dents from the school’s decep­tive admis­sions prac­tices. The move to with­draw the school’s GI Bill eli­gi­bil­ity was made after the Gov­ern­ment Account­abil­ity Office reported that West­wood and 14 other schools made ques­tion­able state­ments about grad­u­a­tion rates, failed to pro­vide clear infor­ma­tion about the program’s cost, and exag­ger­ated appli­cants’ poten­tial earn­ings.

The removal of these three schools is part of a larger effort to crack down on higher edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tions that use decep­tive admis­sions processes and heavy-handed tech­niques to per­suade stu­dents to enroll in their edu­ca­tion pro­grams.
