As if that weren’t enough, Ashford University has also had accreditation issues and was caught robocalling in 2014.
Clemson University, home of the Fighting Tigers, is located in the foothills of Upstate South Carolina. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, former Governor David Beasley, television personality and journalist Nancy O’Dell and the late Senator Strom Thurmond are some of the most notable alumni.

Clemson never runs short of school spirit. During home football games at the stadium in Death Valley — which holds 80,000 — the Tigers’ roar can be heard for miles.

You may remember commercials for ICDC College, featuring recording artists Master P and Lil Romeo (Percy and son Romeo Miller), which were focused on unrealistic financial gains. As lame as these commercials were, the story of this “college” is even weaker. ICDC was never a great school — and went FOUR YEARS without proper accreditation — yet its tuition costs were incredibly steep, enabling it to rapidly expand from one strip mall location to four. Thankfully, ICDC no longer enrolls students and now refers students to regionally accredited Trident University, an entirely-online for-profit university.
ICDC College is a stark reminder that prospective students must thoroughly research schools they are considering attending in order to avoid expensive rip-offs with no tangible rewards. Please do not ever consider enrolling in any school that does not have proper accreditation and a history of successfully providing students with a quality education.
