Regulators Stop Ashford from Accepting G.I. BillNovember 22, 2017 | :

Ashford University announced this week that it will no longer accept veterans using the Post-9/11 GI Bill under an agreement to temporarily suspend such enrollment.
The decision was made after a lengthy and ongoing dispute between Ashford University and the Department of Veterans Affairs due to its physical location in the state of Iowa. The state moved to revoke Ashford University of its status to accept GI Bill veterans due to a decision to close its physical location in Iowa. Acceptance of GI Bill monies is a state-based eligibility determination, and veterans using GI Bill will likely need to find an alternative way to finance their degree until Ashford University sorts out its legal woes.
