- Student Veterans of America released its first "not recommended" list of schools, which includes WyoTech, Everest, and Heald colleges — part of the for-profit Corinthian Colleges chain — because of their “irresponsible” recruiting practices.
- SVA will strongly urge veterans to avoid the schools on the list, which may be expanded if other schools are found to have “equally poor practices.”
- The list was created after the veterans group fielded complaints about Corinthian's efforst to recruit active duty service members at military bases in Southern California, even after the company announced its business would be shutting down.
The Navy Times reported that Corinthian Colleges schools enrolled 5,873 Post-9/11 GI Bill students in its 2013 fiscal year, totaling $61 million. The SVA’s actions come on the heels of a letter last month from more than a dozen senators seeking the halt of new student enrollments until the proposed sale of 85 of Corinthian's 97 U.S. schools is completed. School representatives have said they have no plans to stop recruiting.
