This website tells the story of fraudulent WAUC (World Association of Universities and Colleges) and does NOT promote this organization. Make sure you understand the American system and don’t be a victim of the fake accredited organizations. You will find on this website full explanation of the official educational system so make sure to check all details. So check out this post about Fake Accreditation – History of WAUC.
WAUC was an organization set up and owned by Maxine Klein Asher (August 15, 1930 – May 19, 2015).
It was the hub of American World University, an unaccredited institution with more than 7,000 students around the globe which was commonly considered to be a diploma mill.
In 1993 she founded the World Association of Universities and Colleges (WAUC), an accrediting service unrecognized by the U.S. Department of Education, that gave its imprimatur to a host of alternative institutions.
Almost every day Columbus University and Lacrosse University, both of which are considered diploma mills by some government regulators, advertised in the back pages of USA Today. In bold type, they tout their accreditation from the association. That made Ms. Asher a central figure in the shadowy world of unaccredited higher education. Also, students getting geared up for the GED exam have become victims of these fraudulent practices. Shame!
