Hello all. Been a while since I have checked in. We all need to do a writing campaign to the feds about all of these diploma mills and substandard schools. I did get sucked into one and found out too late so I could not recoupe my money. So I chaulked it up to a lesson well learned. The school really put on a good front. I was impressed. But I started asking questions about the way the university verified previous degrees, portfolios and etc. I got the biggest side steppin' answers that any one has probably ever heard. I demanded my money back but was unsuccessful. I have supplied the Wyoming Department of Education quite a few items that may help them close this bogus place down. I am considering filing a complaint or case against this "unversity" becasue it was a deception. I do have a BA and MA from RA's universities. In the past, I have taken courses with Southern California University for Professional Studies. There course objectives and goals and course content/requirements are very rigourous. Comparable to my master's program I completed. I realize that SCUPS is not a RA accredited school, but it is approved through California's Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education. I have researched the legislation and standards that schools have to meet and I am comfortable with them being a quality education. I know the that four courses I completed with SCUPS in 2000 and 2001 were very well done. And SCUPS does not grant life experience learning. I am reapplying for the Psy D program with SCUPS. But, before I send my money in, could anyone share any information with me about this university's standing? I know Oregon does recognize SCUPS' degrees for employment in that state. That is at least a good sign. I am also in the application review phase of getting into UNC Chapel Hill Public Management program. Have my fingers crossed. The only degrees that North Carolina will accept for State Employment are from Regionally Accredited Schools. I hate this state is doing this because there are quality schools out there that are not accredited. I hate all of those danged diploma mills. They have made it really bad for the rest of us. And guys---thanks for the info on Breyer State University. I do believe that I saw something about a news crew going to a private home and the person who answered the door said it was Breyer State University. How in the h$%* can places like this continue to operate?
