Online for-profit college in the US faces difficulties

In the July edition of eCampus news there is a report on the problems faced by Ashford University, one of the fastest growing online schools. One of the biggest problems facing this college is the rejection  of its request for accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Ashford's own website makes no mention of these difficulties and continues to make large numbers of college-level courses available online.
