Purdue Gets Final Approval For Controversial Online University

Purdue Gets Final Approval For Controversial Online University”

Kaplan University's transition to Purdue University Global has received the final green light, as has realignment of IPFW and its subsequent name change to Purdue University Fort Wayne.

The Higher Learning Commission, the institution's accrediting body, gave the okay Monday. Purdue University, located in West Lafayette, Ind., last April announced its decision to acquire Kaplan University from Kaplan Inc., and on January 11 unveiled the institution's new name.

Faculty members worry the deal will tarnish Purdue's reputation and diminish the value of a Purdue degree.

"Starting today, Purdue University hopes to take a leading role in online learning nationally", says Purdue President Mitch Daniels. Officials expect to launch the new program in April.

The for-profit education company that has locations in Mason City and Cedar Falls and runs a student support center in Rochester is being purchased by Purdue University to become part of a new venture called Purdue Global. Kaplan's enrollment now totals some 30,000 students, all of which the university says will "seamlessly transition" to Purdue Global.
