Absurd Audit

A recent report from a federal auditor from the U.S. Department of Education grabbed headlines by proffering the opinion that Western Governors University should repay more than $700 million in Title IV aid received by the University via attending students. The report, titled “Western Governors University Was Not Eligible to Participate in the Title IV Programs,” argues that WGU faculty did not provide sufficient “regular and substantive” interaction with students, and that because over 50 percent of courses offered are categorized as “correspondence courses,” they are ineligible for the financial aid received.
