Surveys

Sept. 24, 2018 -- Inside Higher Ed’s 2018 Survey of College and University Admissions Directors, conducted with Gallup, examines the views of top admissions administrators on a wide range of topics. A copy of the survey can be found here.

February 10, 2006

Diploma mill operators often manage to stay one step ahead of the law, changing their location or how they operate whenever state or other authorities zero in for a crackdown.
