The U.S. Justice Department announced that it was accusing Stevens-Henager College and its owner in a civil lawsuit of illegally compensating recruiters. The college and its owner, The Center for Excellence in Higher Education, are alleged to have "falsely certified compliance with provisions of federal law that prohibit a university from paying incentive-based compensation to its admissions recruiters based on the number of students they recruit," according to the DOJ news release. The college and its owner are denying wrongdoing, and the lawsuit is pending. Under the federal False Claims Act, two former employees of the school who were "whistleblowers" and reported suspected wrongdoing to the government stand to receive financial rewards if the government is successful in recovering money previously paid to the college in the form of federal student aid.
