    I do not see Lacrosse University on the list. I just double checked it and they are WAUC accredited.

    It looks like there is about to be a name change from World Association of Universities and Colleges to International Association of Universities and Colleges , or has this always been this way. The wauc.org website references IAUC several places and even the text refers to the organization as International Association of Universities and Colleges.

    Change or intentional?

    Sounds like a marketing ploy. Degree mills do it all the time. The public (or some of it, anyway) gets wise to the name, so the mills change. Why not WAUC? Perhaps WAUC is being recognized as a phony and a name change is needed.

    Makes you wonder about the people who buy degrees from mills, only to see their fake schools disappear without a trace (only to turn up with a different name and all details changed).

    Dona Ana College

    This is most distrubing. New Mexico State University's main campus is located in Dona Ana County, New Mexico. The University runs a community college called Dona Ana Branch Community College, which is well known throughout southern New Mexico and has campus facilitites in a half dozen smaller communities. "Dona Ana College" is awful damned close, if you see what I mean.

    647-1681 is probably a cell phone number.

    In 1996, Loyola State University (Ronald Pellar's other diploma mill) claimed accreditation from the International Association of Universities and Colleges (IAUC):

    In 1999, Barrington University claimed accreditation from the IAUC:

    In 2001, Barrington University, Adam Smith University, Chadwick University, and Trinity College & University, were among those claiming membership in the International Association of Colleges & Schools (IACS): http://web.archive.org/web/20010922195355/http://www.iaus-accreditation.org/

    WAUC's use of the IAUC name as observed by Mike is interesting; but historically they seem to have been separate.

    Mark: "In 1996, Loyola State University (Ronald Pellar's other diploma mill)..."

    John: My understanding is that Loyola State was started by a woman who had bought her degree from Pellar's Columbia State, and then copied all the Columbia State literature to start her own phony, but that he wasn't involved. The state of Illinois acted promptly and vigorously, closing her down within weeks.

    Pellar's other schools might be considered the currently-operating WAUC-accredited Cambridge State University. According to the reporter for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, he bankrolled it for a million bucks. Louisiana closed them down, as a degree mill, but they continue to operate with a Hawaii mailbox address, run from Los Angeles.

    Only a few questions

    I noticed so many cool and fancy names from the not so wonderful listings above. One did stick out.

    The question:

    Can I get a Masters from the Universal Church of the Master?
    Would the dean have a Masters or a PhD?
    Is the dean a Master Doctor or a Doctor Master?
    Can the Master give a Masters or only a single Master?
    If I attempt a Master from the Master would I be a Master or just a slave?
    Is the Master a Master of Education or just a Master of the Martial Arts or a Master of the Martial Arts with a Masters?
    Would he/she then be called a Master Master?

    Wow! Im confusing myself, just as I am confused about how these places continue to stay in business!

    Have to go now and search for a Master
