Wisconsin Orders Westwood College Online to Stop Enrolling Students

Westwood College is in trouble with another state regulatory agency. The for-profit institution, which already faces probation in Colorado and a possible shutdown in Texas, was ordered by Wisconsin regulators on Thursday to cease enrolling students in the state or face fines of up to $500 per day, according to the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, a nonprofit organization in Madison, Wis. The Wisconsin Educational Approval Board, which regulates for-profit colleges, said Westwood was providing online classes without its approval. A spokeswoman for Westwood College Online declined to comment on Thursday to the investigative-journalism center.
