Ashford Gets OK to Keep GI Bill Students

Ashford University can continue enrolling students on the GI Bill — at least for now, the Veterans Affairs Department has confirmed.

The online, for-profit school that’s one of the top enrollers of military students was in danger of losing its eligibility to accept GI Bill funds last year after failing to maintain the appropriate state-level approval required for the veterans education benefit. That approval is still pending, but despite the VA’s Jan. 9 deadline, the federal agency has decided not to pull payments as it awaits a court appeal and a decision from the state of California.
