Nothing “elitist” 6bso, the students realize and will admit they’re at Ai for the degree not the education.
They’d be at respectable colleges if they could be.
“Star in a soap opera” that’d be a blast. Thanks.
3rzg I think it's time for you to shut your elitist trap up -- go star in a soap opera
Is Middle States really going to approve AI? How can they with all of the support staff shut down? They will lose any credibility.
It’s been said before, a lot of Ai and AU students are lazy and won’t go through the trouble if transferring, or they are looking for an easy degree, or unable to get into respected colleges.
Any bright and ambitious student that may have enrolled realizes their mistake and is looking for a way out.
Hopefully the lazy students will get over themselves and move on.
The ones that couldn’t get into other schools, there must be something out there for them, but guaranteed it won’t be any better than an AU or Ai degree. A community college or votech is a good choice.
Think about it seriously, if AiP and AiO were purchased it would need approval from US DOE, PA DOE, MSCHE, then vendors and creditors would have to be re-contracted for the new owners if they choose to continue knowing the payment issues of the past few months, faculty re-credentialed for their subject area basically meaning fired and rehired, students would have to work with their lenders and receive approval for tuition loans to the new entity, if it is a “real” university (not another nonprofit or for profit) students would need to reapply to be accepted to the new school, etc. etc. etc.
Yes a sale is a possibility but highly unlikely, especially in less than 60 days. Even if it happens, except for the administrators involved in brokering the deal there is no guarantee other employees and the current students will be retained.
I hear it is truly 50/50 right now whether a successful sale can even occur given all the roadblocks from finance to accreditation.
So you’re telling me there’s a chance... YEAH...
