For-profit colleges say they offer working adults and other non-traditional students access to a college degree and career, but the promise doesn’t always work out so great for students or taxpayers.  Schools like ITT Tech, University of Phoenix, The Art Institutes and Kaplan are among those  that advertise they give you the skills to get a job.  Click here to watch this report on “For-Profit Colleges” by Dan Rather Reports.

Under Scrutiny

Watch Dan Rather Reports investigation below.

Please note the James Hoyer Law Firm currently represents a whistleblower in a case against Education Management Corporation (EDMC), which owns several for-profit colleges, including The Art Institutes, South University, Argosy University and Brown Mackie College.
