U. of Phoenix Parent Acknowledges Review by Massachusetts (and Other States)

May 17, 2011

The attorney general's office in Massachusetts has asked the University of Phoenix for documents and information going back a decade as part of a larger review into "possible unfair or deceptive methods, acts, or practices by for-profit educational institutions in connection with the recruitment of students and the financing of education," the university's parent company announced Monday. In the statement, the Apollo Group said its officials believed that the review stemmed from a coordinated effort by several states "considering investigatory or other inquires into recruiting practices and the financing of education at proprietary educational institutions." The Huffington Post reported this month that as many as 10 attorneys general were cooperating to look into for-profit higher education.
