No discipline planned at North Dakota degree mill

ND university system chancellor says no discipline planned for awarding of unearned degrees By The Associated Press

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) ' The chancellor of North Dakota's university system says no immediate discipline is planned for any Dickinson State University employees in the wake of an audit determining the school awarded hundreds of degrees to foreign students who didn't earn them.

William Goetz also told The Associated Press on Saturday that he would not speculate whether the apparent suicide of university administrator Doug LaPlante was connected to the audit's Friday release. The audit didn't mention LaPlante but many affected students studied in the business program he led.

The audit found only 10 of the 410 foreign students to receive degrees at Dickinson State since 2003 completed all their requirements.

Goetz says the other students may have their degrees revoked but will receive the opportunity to legitimately earn them.
