American Military University has agreed to a $270,000 settlement regarding allegations by the state of Massachusetts that the school violated state law by misleading veterans.
Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey alleges the online for-profit school, whose students are mostly veterans, did not make mandated disclosures to prospective students regarding job placement rates and did not provide important information about loan repayment and graduation rates to prospective students within the required time frame. The state also alleges the university practiced predatory enrollment tactics such as excessive recruitment calls.
