A recent study by a Wisconsin state agency reveals that about one-third of all students enrolled at for-profit and online colleges in Wisconsin do not make it to the second year of instruction.

The report, which was highlighted in a story in the Wisconsin State Journal, found that 30 percent of students who started at a group of 213 for-profit and online schools overseen by the state's Educational Approval Board had dropped out before the second year of instruction.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal story,  the for-profit school industry "has been widely criticized in recent years, coming under congressional scrutiny and seeing numerous individual schools sued by state attorneys general for practices including inflated promises about job placement and overly aggressive marketing tactics."
