Walden U facing program review from Minnesota higher ed officials - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

The Minnesota Office of Higher Education has launched an program review of Walden University amid student complaints that the school misrepresented claims of student success in its marketing. Students reported to the commission that it was taking longer to earn a doctorate than expected, and that loan debt had increased as a result. Walden officials say the school has a robust record of graduating students on time and without delay, and that one lawsuit cited in coverage about the doctoral troubles spurred the investigation. Walden has largely avoided the scrutiny of for-profit schools by the U.S. Department of Education in recent months. http://www.educationdive.com/news/walden-u-facing-program-review-from-minnesota-higher-ed-officials/427925/
