Bridgepoint's Problems with the Securities and Exchange Commission

Bridgepoint "Fraud" Named in KPBS Expose

"Nationally, Ashford University has received $110 million to educate Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in the last five years. In May, it agreed to pay $7 million to consumers in Iowa after that state’s attorney general, Tom Miller, accused the company of making false statements to prospective students to persuade them to enroll. 'As far as I’m concerned, Ashford committed fraud,' said Patrick Keane, a 20-year Navy veteran from Iowa who spent his GI Bill funds on a teaching program at the online college only to find no schools would recognize the degree. Representatives of Bridgepoint Education declined to be interviewed. In a statement, the company said it never promised Keane that he would be able to teach with a degree from Ashford. Bridgepoint also is being investigated by California Attorney General Kamala Harris."....http://www.kpbs.org/news/2014/jun/28/gi-bill-funds-flow-profit-colleges-fail-state-aid-/

University of the Rockies Downsizing

Given that the enrollment is going down consistently nobody should be surprised with the downsizing. 117 people is not a lot given the magnitude of the problem – check out UOP and Apollo and Corinthian pages on this site and you’ll see that thousands were let go over last two years. Both Ashford University and University of the Rockies in Denver are losing students and there is nothing indicating that things will get any better. We’ll see what happens but I am sure enrollment will continue to dip and we’ll continue to be hosed.

Back in September 2012 Ashford University announced roughly 500 cuts - has this ever materialized?

The Cal Warn Act is not applicable in this case. It only applies to employees who have been with the company 181 days or more. It appears that the severance is your best option.

Ashford University Layoffs. If you were laid off, dismissed, eliminated, or asked to end your relationship with Ashford in the past 60-90 days, the definition of that is Laid Off. Ashford does not like to use that term, but the Labor Dept. does. Before you sign the 2 week severance package, check out the Cal-Warn Act, which may obligate the employer to pay up to 60 days severance pay. If there is a mass layoff within a 30 day period of more than 50 people, you may be eligible. They still may be trying to stick it to you.

Today Ashford University laid off over 1000 employees. they made sure to lay off all employees hired less then 6 months ago to not have to pay the 60 day or give pink slips for the 60 day notice.... they are restructuring. I believe they just wanted to screw people because their own mistake. Feel bad for the employees that loose their benefits in 6 days like health insurance etc.

Just take a look at all discussions that are happening at the University of Phoenix, Corinthian Colleges and Apollo Group boards - not much different here at Bridgepoint Education. Bridgepoint is big, 7000 people in the States, 3000 here in California, mostly San Diego area. We had massive layoffs back in January 2012 but then it stopped. Now the question is how many folks will be axed now - hard to tell but given that the admission numbers are looking bleak I am pretty sure it'l be massive.
