On July 10, 2012, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Kentucky ruled that the Council on Occupational Education, Inc., the accreditor for Decker College, Inc., made factually erroneous statements to DOE. In re Decker College, Inc., Case No. 05-61805 (W.D. Ky. July 10, 2012), Dkt. 198 at 18. Specifically, the Court found that the accreditor had falsely informed DOE that Decker College had not been accredited to offer distance education programs. Id. As a result of these false statements, Decker College was determined to be ineligible to receive Title IV funding and was forced to repay $35 million to the DOE, ultimately leading to the school's bankruptcy. While this ruling cannot undo the unfair damage to Decker College, the ruling serves a reminder that in today's environment, not only schools, but accreditors may be subject to scrutiny and claims for misrepresentations made to the government.
