简单地说美国的营利性大学是公司,大学公司主要由投资人运营,全部是私立性质,办学的目的是为了营利。

到这类所谓美国大学读书,基本上是花钱买文凭,买比野鸡好点的家鸡文凭。

 

营利性大学很多是上市公司,(所以上市不一定就是好事)

如Career Education Corp,纳斯达克:CECO,

The Education Management Corp. 纳斯达克:EDMC

据华尔街日报(5月7日),这两个大学公司几个月前关闭了超过12所学校,而且未来即将关闭30所。

 

据美国教育部,目前美国有近11%的学生所受的高等教育来源于营利性机构,但学生的贷款坏债率高达44%。

 

美国是一个包容性强的社会,包括一些糟粕大学曾当作新事物风行一时,实践证明,美国大学公司问题多多,这类学校特别不适合国内学生到美国就读。问题是这类营利性学校和某些国内中介机构密切配合,非常具有欺骗性,不熟悉美国大学的家长很难准确判断那些大学属于这类营利性大学,对于我来说则简单的很

 

美国大学招生协会特别提醒学生及家长,如果选择了营利性大学,在决定前最好问清楚以下问题:

 

  1. How many credits are transferable to other schools?

  2. What is the school’s graduation rate in the program you are looking at?

  3. Does the school accept transfer credits?

  4. How many courses do you need to take to graduate?

  5. What is the student-faculty ratio?

  6. How much money does the school spend on education materials versus recruitment and marketing?

  7. What is the total cost of admission, tuition, books and other fees?

  8. What is the average amount of student loans students graduate with?

  9. Does the school have a job-placement program?
