California Miramar Giving Up DETC

Postby Rich Douglas » Fri Feb 14, 2014 6:01 pm

California Miramar U. is giving up DETC accreditation. Somehow, it is also accredited by ACICS. Interesting. This implies they chose between the two and decided on ACICS (unless they're giving that up, too.)

Interesting. I would assume they chose one. And I'd probably choose ACICS too, if it were me.

They attained DETC accreditation first and subsequently ACICS. As suggested here, I'm guessing they found ACICS is right for them. I remember that the day this school got DETC accreditation, tuition nearly doubled. From something like $85 a credit hour to $155, IIRC.

Even though they're leaving DETC, I doubt tuition is going back down any time soon. :(

Was this reported somewhere? I couldn't find it on the DETC website : http://www.detc.org/Public-Notices/Volu ... ation.aspx

That's not surprising. "He left me for his mistress!" isn't something most jiltees are eager to promote.

Yes, Matt, it was. I enjoyed Steve's sarcasm anyway, though! :)

It's here, under Lapse of Accreditation: http://www.detc.org/UploadedDocuments/P ... report.pdf
