Feds pull student aid for Globe, Minnesota School of Business

Schools committed fraud by misrepresenting criminal justice programs

The U.S. Department of Education says Globe University and the Minnesota School of Business will no longer be allowed to participate in federal student aid programs.

The department made the announcement Tuesday, and the move could jeopardize the ability of the Woodbury-based for-profit schools to continue to operate.

The Education Department says the schools committed fraud by misrepresenting their criminal justice programs and their transfer-ability of credits to other institutions.

Federal student aid will be shut off on December 31, and the schools have until December 20 to dispute the department’s findings.

Globe and Minnesota School of Business told the Star Tribune that it had no comment.

A judge earlier ruled that the two schools fraudulently marketed and recruited students for their now-shuttered criminal justice program.
