Udacity guarantees graduates job placement or full tuition rebate - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

For-profit boot camp company Udacity asserts that its graduates will find gainful employment within six months of completing its programs, or the company will give students a full return on tuition payment. Some states such as New York and California prohibit such guarantees, and while states frequently work with the federal government to monitor such claims, there is little room for punitive response against those companies operating without accreditation or which don't receive federal financial aid for training. Supporters say the guarantees offer a different level of accountability for institutions based on the quality of students that their education can produce.
