Higher Education Services Corporation - Tuition Assistance Program

The Betty Owen School, Ltd.

During the 1996-97 through 1998-99 academic years, The Betty Owen School, Ltd. certified $2.6 million in Tuition Assistance Program awards. We disallowed $2.2 million of these awards, because students were incorrectly certified as eligible for the awards. For example, some students received awards even though their courses were taught by unlicensed teachers or had more students per teacher than are permitted by State regulations. In addition, many students were allowed to graduate, even though they had not received the minimum number of instructional hours required for graduation.
