Tagged: GWU online masters program
Red Alert Politics reported earlier today that George Washington University is the subject of a class action lawsuit for offering allegedly a fraudulent online masters program. Each plaintiff paid over $28,000 in tuition. The suit claims GWU promised a very similar experience to its campus classes but there was no instructor and the classes consisted of PowerPoint slides taken from those classes.
Obviously, we don’t have all the facts. We suppose, barring a confidential out-of-court settlement, that time will tell just how accurate these allegations prove to be. What we mostly want to stress with this post is the importance of conducting your due diligence before committing to any program, online or otherwise. Make it a mandatory point to talk to current and former students as well as faculty and career services. And remember, even if GWU is found innocent of these allegations, it still strongly appears that the students in this class action lawsuit wish they would have conducted more careful due diligence in hindsight.
Best of luck with your applications!

Sadly I’m not surprised. Talk to some GW students or alumni and reach your own conclusions.
Don’t trust the politicians or the schools in DC.
