DoD increases oversight of for-profit, online colleges
Friday - 9/24/2010, 4:29pm EDT

Under the proposed policy, DoD would hold online colleges to the same review process as schools with traditional classrooms.
DoD also wants to institute "memorandums of understanding" between the department and the schools.
The change is happening, largely, as a result of a Government Accountability Office report that criticized 15 popular for-profit schools for deceptive recruiting practices.
