State’s diploma mills draw academic ire by Adam Jones

At Chadwick University in Birmingham, students can get a graduate degree based on how much of life they’ve seen. But graduates seeking employment with the federal government would be wise to leave that degree off their resumes. A government investigation uncovered 463 federal employees had claimed degrees from unaccredited schools, including Chadwick. Alabama education leaders hope to reverse the state’s reputation as a haven for diploma mills by strengthening laws regulating how private colleges like Chadwick are set up.
