Chadwick University Called a "Diploma Mill"
#1
From the article:

"Unfortunately, Alabama has long been known as a haven for unscrupulous diploma mills. The Tuscaloosa News investigated in February 2007 and uncovered 'schools' like Chadwick University in Birmingham, where for a fee you could get a graduate degree based on life experiences with no academic work. Since our report, Chadwick has been kicked out of Alabama."

How can this be?  Chadwick has been operating for more than 20 years.  And as we've heard from one of its distinguished alumni, it was legitimate and state-licensed (which makes it okay and an alternative one might consider).  This doesn't seem right.  Is it?

On another note, Chadwick University is now using a mail box in Silver City, New Mexico.  But their website has been stripped down to just a couple of e-mail contacts--no information about the school, its programs, etc.  Chadwick does not appear to have authority to operate from New Mexico, but perhaps that's in the works.  Or not, according to this newspaper article from October 21st:

New Mexico's laws are now quite stringent for new schools operating in the state--tightened after Century University relocated there almost two decades ago.

I can't believe it either.  Next they will be giving out Ph.D's in 9 months, accept credit that is 20yrs old, and allow their friends on the committee.  Freakin mills.

I would hope not. If they did, they would never be able to hope for accreditation, much less New Mexico licensure. Those kinds of things simply do not happen.

Chadwick maybe isn't a great school but no-one seems to have any believable story that they were less than credible.

Except the local press, who calls it a diploma mill. And the State of Alabama, who ejected them by denying their relicensure. And the regional accreditor, which never accredited them.

What is obvious is that there is nothing to indicate they are--or ever were--legitimate. Perhaps such evidence exists, but no outside authority has ever indicated this is so.

If you have some proof that any of this is true, I think everyone would like to hear it. Absent that, it didn't happen. None of it.

I have heard students say the programs were real. I have heard some uninformed and opinionated bystanders give opinions to the contrary. I realize that you believe your uninformed opinion to be truth but it isn't here. Do I hear Gus calling? You'd better go now.

No opinions offered, except what was found in the press. (That Chadwick is a diploma mill.)

I supposed you are reassured by the fact that the press never get's it wrong.
