SVA Announces “Not Recommended” List of Schools for Veterans

SVA Schools Avoid VeteransStudent Veterans of America (SVA) is announcing an initiative to raise awareness of schools facing issues that may present challenges for veterans, and will strongly urge student veterans to avoid these institutions. The decision to create this resource came after SVA received several complaints regarding student recruitment practices taking place in Southern California; Even after Corinthian Colleges announced their business closure, several schools affiliated with the company continued to actively recruit students, traveling to military bases to speak with active duty servicemembers.

“I am disappointed to see institutions engage in such irresponsible behavior,” said SVA President and CEO, D. Wayne Robinson. “Even in a period of great uncertainty, these schools are on active duty installations recruiting students, while thousands of veterans and servicemembers already enrolled face an unclear future. If we find additional schools with equally poor practices, they will be included in this list and we will ensure its widest dissemination.”

As veterans look to use their VA benefits to earn a post-secondary degree, SVA advises them to be cautious of institutions whose futures are uncertain. The following schools are the first to be named to the “Not Recommended” list:

  • Everest College
  • Heald College
  • Wyotech
