Westwood College Is Put on Probation in Colorado

Westwood College, a for-profit institution already in trouble with regulators in Texas and Wisconsin, was put on probation on Tuesday by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education, which cited questions about the college’s recruiting techniques and student learning, according to The Denver Post. Members of the commission, who voted 7 to 2 to impose probation, also said the college should disclose its problems to both current and prospective students. In a statement issued after the vote, the college, which is based in Denver but has operations in seven states, pledged to “work with our accreditation agencies to ensure compliance with all standards and clear up any confusion or questions that may exist.” The commission could eventually revoke Westwood’s authorization to operate.
