American College of Science Units Up Store in Vietnam

Gotta love the homepage video of an older white man with an extended flowing beard and three studs in his left ear wearing a lab coat and goggles in a single scene, younger feminine assistant and all, and solo in a grey jacket in one other. I assume he’s imagined to signify a stereotypical mental and exemplify the saying on the display screen, Be Wiser. My inside monologue questioned how they might maintain a straight face. That’s what good actors do!

Additionally, gotta love the introduction: “The American College of Science goals to convey high quality training to all, with out boundaries and no matter background. Article 26 of the Common Declaration of Human Rights declares that everybody has the precise to training equally accessible. We concentrate on supporting all folks to pursue knowledge for a greater life in a greater world.” How noble of them. I sit up for seeing how a lot this “high quality training for all” prices. My educated guess is revenue by quantity and based mostly on low overhead.

Then there’s this long-winded caveat, proof that AUS is a one more US rogue supplier, i.e., unaccredited establishment: “In accordance with america Division of Schooling (USDE), ‘accreditation in america is a voluntary, nongovernmental course of, through which an establishment and its applications are evaluated towards requirements for measuring high quality.’ ​The American College of Science (The College) acknowledges that possessing an USDE-recognized accreditation considerably favors college students in quite a few points. Thus, one of many strategic pillars of The College is to constantly advance its system and requirements to be akin to these holding USDE-recognized accreditation in relation to awarding Doctorate, Grasp’s, Bachelor’s, and Affiliate’s levels, in addition to different diplomas and certificates. In the end, this follow features as a cornerstone for working in the direction of USDE-recognized accreditation when this feature turns into viable. The College has constantly been investing a big effort in satisfying the necessary necessities demonstrated within the accreditation insurance policies of all USDE-recognized accrediting our bodies. ​The academic system of america of America stays uniquely distinctive. Earlier than in search of USDE-recognized accreditation, all establishments in Hawaii should adjust to the provisions of Chapter 446E (MAA: I inserted this hyperlink) of Hawaii Revised Statutes (Unaccredited Diploma Granting Establishments) to function and grant postsecondary {qualifications} of all ranges legally.​ As a good-standing establishment within the State of Hawaii, The College absolutely and willingly complies with Chapter 446E of Hawaii Revised Statutes, which requires The College to state that ​The American College of Science IS NOT ACCREDITED BY AN ACCREDITING AGENCY RECOGNIZED BY THE UNITED STATES SECRETARY OF EDUCATION. Word: In america, many licensing authorities require accredited levels as the idea for eligibility for licensing. In some instances, accredited faculties might not settle for for switch programs and levels accomplished at unaccredited faculties, and a few employers might require an accredited diploma as a foundation for eligibility for employment.”

The half in caps is the cash phrase. I’ve seen this wording earlier than, probably a replica and paste. Oh, and many of the hyperlinks on the web site don’t work. The web site was registered on 9.5.21, up to date on 14.5.22, and can expire on 9.5.23. The entire contact info, i.e., registrant, administrative, and technical, was “redacted for privateness.”

Nearer to house, AUS was established as a Vietnamese firm in January 2022 at this handle: A7.08 Saigon Royal Residence, 34 – 35, Bến Vân Đồn, Ward 13, District 4, Ho Chi Minh Metropolis. This US college is presently trying to fill two positions:

Digital Advertising: $500-1000

Human Sources Specialist: $500-1000

The handle is listed as Aqua 4, Vinhomes Ba Son Golden River, 2 Ton Duc Thang, Ben Nghe Ward, District 1, HCMC.

In accordance with the outline on VietnamWorks, “The American College of Science, a personal college established within the State of Hawaii, United States of America, goals to increase its affect and ship its academic companies in Asia, specializing in Singapore and Vietnam.” Is it licensed in Hawaii? (My request is pending.)

I’ve obtained to provide these US rogue suppliers credit score for one factor – persistence. Wherever there’s revenue potential, that’s the place they’ll be, like a foul penny and flies to honey or one thing much less savory.

Memo to AUS: You’re late to the rogue supplier sport in Vietnam – by over a decade. Official Vietnam, together with the Ministry of Schooling and Coaching (MoET), is onto you! The clock is ticking.

Shalom (שלום), MAA
