All students have been told to do their research. I've personally told my students to avoid for-profit institutions or institutions currently under ACICS accreditation. Literature, contact information, and academic referrals, as well as academic representative names and information, have been given to those who have requested them. I've also told my students that, if need be, I would be happy to point them towards a university that meets and/or exceeds training needs that reflect the industry(ies) that they are targetting themselves towards.
Bottom line: I've told my students to do their homework and look at the basic information such as retention, graduation rates, recorded academic excellence, and involvement in both local and national communities such as fundraising, community involvement and pro-bono work done in the community, etc.
