Quick reflections after reading 3 pages of comments: 1. It does seem to be irresponsible journalism to make the headline appear as though accreditation was lost. You can say otherwise if you want to but even this higher-than-average-reading-comprehension crowd misunderstood until it was pointed out that they remain regionally accredited elsewhere. 2. I have facilitated courses now for 7 - that's SEVEN - online universities (several religious-based, several not; several with B&M campus, several not; several not-for-profit, several not). I would say that academic rigor is top 3 of those 7 and that (as someone else noted) quality assurance on the faculty end (making sure faculty do what they are supposed to do) they are top 1 of 7. I hear student complaints, but no more than any other of the larger (and smaller, I suppose) schools.
