University of the People is a tuition-free online institution that aims to reach all students that wish to obtain a college education. It is fully accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council, a national accrediting group. It offers courses that include business administration and computer science programs.
The regime will have to suppress this immediately.
Big Education is a major funding source for Democrats.
Nothing shall be allowed to disrupt Big Education.

I hate to admit what my first thought was. If it is an accredited school, then folks can use it in order to get financial aid. Then, the students get to keep whatever they qualified for.
I have often wondered why the State University systems have not gone online with a reduced cost. That would bring the educational experience to anyone with a smart phone and wifi.
Of course the drunken rap sessions and sex parties would suck, but hey, not everyone can afford private school.
Excellent post and right on the money.
Thanks for posting this, I’m definitely going to check it out. 55 years old and now up the creek because 30 years ago I didn’t get that old sheepskin. Maybe this can help me.
Right now the state and private universities have taken on so much unneeded expenses that if it was not for the foreign students some of the would go broke.
University of the People has two strikes against it. First, national accreditation is not the same as regional accreditation: credits will not be transferable, and the degrees will not be recognized by regionally accredited institutions. Second and more importantly, it’s associated with Israel, which in the academic world is second only to being pro-life as a deal killer.
Universities with tuitions typically throw a lot of fluff into their curriculums. If you want a computer science degree, most of your classes will include things like theatre, dance, art, literature, sociology, etc. What employer is going to look at your resume and say “Oh, you’ve read Shakespeare! Well, I think we’ve found our new network administrator”. It’s just the universtity sucking money out of its students. Suppose you have to take a finger painting class in order to get a degree. Then of course you must buy a textbook (written by the teacher and only available in their book store), 400 hues of paint, and canvas made of a particular reed that grows only a few days a year in Borneo. It’s all a scam.

there is another reason, all the different humanities departments live and die on numbers of students enrolled in their courses. So of course you have to take mandatory art, women studies, philosophy etc.
According to the University site:
(*At this time, due to US regulatory requirements, University of the People is unable to accept applications for admission from applicants residing in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Oregon,Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, Wyoming.)
An interesting concept and a good answer to those politicians looking for more taxpayer funding for the ‘all of a sudden must have’ college for everyone
....it’s not needed.
For the industrious student, it would be a good way to become knowledgeable about subject matter before you head into a more conventional course of study.
And here is the URL:
These are issues that anyone planning to attend this educational institution should consider. It is only the Liberal Left that would be concerned that it is based in Israel, If you will notice at the article site
the accompanying video indicates that professors involved with the students are from universities that will be associated with it include Yale and others of the caliber.
I predicted, years ago, that brick & mortar education will die off under its own inefficiencies and the competition of the internet.
This is another step to realizing the dream of dismantling the liberal indoctrination camps.
There are many indications that many universities are facing financial problems and if the foreign students were not attending many of them would have to close their doors. So your predications appear to be coming true.
Education without indoctrination? This will not do!
