10 Ways To Spot A Diploma Mill

Your online “admission counselor” assures you that international online universities can’t be accredited in the United States by CHEA-recognized agencies. You are offered a college degree based on a “review” of your work experience and faxed resume. On July 28, 2011 University of Northern Virginia, an unaccredited school, was raided by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Competitive intercollegiate sports were not introduced into post secondary education in the United States until the nineteenth century. The first popular collegiate sport was crew, but this was short lived as high media coverage and scholarships made football a lucrative industry in the late 1880s. As interest in football grew so also did its aggressiveness and thus its resulting injuries. The NCAA was born out of President Theodore Roosevelt's demand to reform college football. He wanted this because football was an extremely rough sport which caused many serious injuries.

These diploma and degree mills may further confuse matters by claiming to consider work history, professional education, and previous learning, and may even require the submission of a dissertation or thesis in order to give an added appearance of legitimacy. The term "diploma mill" originally denotes an institution providing diplomas on an intensive and profit-making basis, like a factory. More broadly, it describes any institution that offers qualifications which are not accredited nor based on proper academic assessment. Many faculty seek opportunities to teach as online adjunct instructors for other institutions, either because they wish to augment their salaries or because their own institutions do not offer online classes. Institutions often recruit adjunct faculty by soliciting curriculum vitas at conferences, conventions, listservs and by direct e-mail solicitation33.

The case before the Supreme Court did not directly touch on the issue of whether athletes may earn money for the use of their names, images and likenesses, but the decision arrived on Monday with the N.C.A.A. already embroiled in that question as well. Some observers noted the court's apparent siding with the athletes and its rejection of the NCAA's claim that fan interest is tied to students' amateur status. A work-study job could pay several thousand dollars each year, and working at the typical minimum wage — $7.25 per hour — for 35 hours a week would earn the student a little over $1,000 per month. Everyone around them makes money, but the students responsible for generating revenue receive nothing. Additionally, the NCAA argued that paying their athletes more would fundamentally alter the product that the NCAA provides to consumers. That product, according to the NCAA, is “amateur” athletics offered by poorly compensated student-athletes, not by professionals paid a market salary.
