Some time back, I wrote a post about an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education regarding shady diploma mills exploiting visa loopholes.
That investigation was triggered by the raid of the particularly brazen diploma mill Tri-Valley University in Pleasanton, CA, in January.
The "University of Northern Virginia", one of the institutions that got prominently featured in the Chronicle article from March now got raided by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and faces likely closure as well.
There are a few more such brazen diploma mills waiting to get raided...
Update: It seems that at least some of these diploma mills have threatened legal action against forums and blogs reporting about them. See, e.g., here. I haven't received any such threat (yet), but I will continue to call any non-accredited institution a diploma mill.
