U of Northern Virginia’s operating license revoked

July 23, 2013

University of Northern Virginia, an unaccredited institution that was raided by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials in 2011 in relation to its enrolment of foreign students, has had its operating licence revoked. The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia said the university failed to obtain candidacy status with an accrediting agency approved by the US Department of Education in 5 years. The university has also been instructed to confer with Homeland Security "to determine viable options” for visa holders enrolled at the institution. Inside Higher Ed
