Diploma mills – a useful list

Excellent news for those worried about the validity of US qualifications: there’s a new blog by Robert entitled, ‘Who’s your alma mater?’ If a college or university you are considering seems to be on that list, ask questions.  If someone presents a cv and their qualifications come from somewhere on that list, be very careful.  Names of institutions, as Robert points out, can be confusingly similar but that is part of the art of naming a diploma mill.

Bogus degrees, as we have said before (see Brantridge Annexe) , harm everyone.
