The University of North Virginia has not been an accredited college for the past 5 years, though it has been functioning on the ground floor of an office building for 15 years. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to go to an accredited college, if you don’t you’re probably wasting a lot of money since your degree won’t be recognized by others as “real.” The accreditation process is a quality assurance check conducted by non-profit organizations to ensure there isn’t any shady business going on.
The University of North Virginia was previously under scrutiny because its chancellor was exposed to be a sex dungeon master and because of an immigration raid in 2011. Not to mention the fact that school has failed four audits by the IRS.
According to the Huffington Post, “The college had a history of problems, the worst of which came in the summer of 2011. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security conducted a raid of the institution that July, and federal officials seized computers and records. The school, they found,almost exclusively enrolled foreign students from India whom the college had helped obtain visas by exploiting loopholes, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education.”
Yikes. The State Council for Higher Education in Virginia revoked the college’s license to operate and asked them to cease and desist and close immediately. The worst part is that since the school is shutting down, though the university is forced to refund the students, it’s likely that their credits won’t transfer. I am feeling all the feelz for these guys.
The school chancellor, David Lee, was forced to resign after pictures of him and his BDSM lifestyle were leaked. Lee posted an ad on collarme.com a BDSM website, saying, “We enjoy almost all kinks, and are expert in most of them. But for us it is more the submission and commitment that matter. We provide a safe, sane home with a good balance of love and discipline. We are very serious about finding a permanent addition to our poly family.”
