PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (AP) - Kaplan College in Pembroke Pines has suspended enrollment of new students after a federal investigation found incidents of high pressure sales tactics.
Government Accountability Office agents posed as applicants at 15 randomly selected for-profit colleges.
At the Pembroke Pines campus, investigators say an admissions officer wouldn't let one applicant speak to a financial aid representative until she signed an enrollment contract.
The applicant was also falsely told the school had the same accreditation as Harvard.
The U.S. Education Department has proposed regulations that would cut off federal aid to for-profit college programs if too many of their students default on loans or don't earn enough after graduation to repay them.
