UTAH — A distance education university may have to back several years worth of federal aid after a recent audit found the money was used improperly.
The question comes down to title ix financial aid eligibility. The report from the Department of Education’s Office of Inspector General claims Western General University (WGU) doesn’t qualify for the aid because all of their classes are distance education and interaction between teachers and students are limited.
“The OIG is wrong,” said WGU President, Scott Pulsipher “The one-to-one engagement between faculty and studnets is far greater than students typically experience.”
The audit goes on to the Department of Education where it will be determined if WGU has to pay back about 700 million dollars in financial aid
