For-profit colleges have come under fire over the last couple of years, and for good reason. Once seen as second rate learning institutions, these colleges have become a popular choice for those seeking higher education. This is due to the convenience that they offer their students, a liberal learning environment, as well as aggressive marketing tactics.

However, not all that glitters is gold; many of these colleges hide a dark underbelly of unethical tactics, all carried out to boost student enrollment in order to get their hands on federal funds given out through student loans.

University of the Potomac Targeted In an Expose

University of the Potomac (formerly called Potomac College) is one of the colleges that was involved in an undercover sting operation by the Government Accountability Office. GOA individuals posed as students interested in enrolling in order to determine whether these colleges used ethical and legal practices in their day-to-day operations.

The GAO report says that all 15 colleges investigated “made deceptive or otherwise questionable statements.” While the Government Accountability Office did not find evidence of fraud at any of the largest for-profit companies, the report did cite pushy tactics and poor advice.
