Court: Globe and School of Business students should receive restitution

A court ruled that students who studied criminal justice at Globe University and the Minnesota School of Business should be reimbursed.

Christopher Magan of the Saint Paul Pioneeer Press:

A Hennepin County District Court judge ruled Wednesday that 15 students who testified against the schools during a fraud trial should receive restitution. The schools also were told to set up a system so that the roughly 1,200 students who enrolled in the criminal justice programs since 2009 can ask for reimbursement for their tuition, fees and other academic expenses.

In September, Globe and the Minnesota School of Business were found to have defrauded students by leading them to believe completing the criminal justice programs would help them become police and probation officers. Many students spent up to $80,000 completing degrees, but did not get any closer to their career goals.
