A major for-profit university has reached a settlement with 48 states and the District of Columbia that will force it to wipe out almost $500 million in debt incurred by thousands of its students across the country.

In a statement, Brnovich said the $22 million will help "thousands of students who were saddled with large debts and degrees that were less useful than CEC led its students to believe".

Company officials on Thursday said they deny any wrongdoing but called the settlement an "important milestone".
"CEC's practices were unfair to students as well as taxpayers who supported federal student loans that were destined to fail", says Miller. In July 2017, AG Healey led a multistate lawsuit against Secretary DeVos for abruptly rescinding the Borrower Defense Rule-a regulation that was created to hold abusive higher education institutions accountable for cheating students and taxpayers. The company did not disclose that some of the programs lacked the necessary professional accreditation, leaving students unable to obtain employment or the licensing they needed to continue in their fields. In June 2017, AG Healey joined 18 attorneys general in demanding that the Department stop delaying loan discharges for students victimized by predatory for-profit schools, including claims that have already been approved.
Of the $493 million in debt being wiped out, the greatest share comes from borrowers in Florida, which will get $68 million in relief, followed by Texas, with $51 million.
