Apollo Group (APOL) disclosed in a regulatory filing last night that a team appointed by its accreditor had recommended that the company's main university be placed on probation. The team appointed by the Higher Learning Commission, a regional accreditor, recommended that Apollo's University of Phoenix be placed on probation because the school is not in compliance with regulations related to administrative structure and governance, Apollo reported. More specifically, the team found that Apollo has not given the university enough autonomy. In a note to investors earlier today, William Blair analyst Brandon Dobell wrote that he expects the Higher Learning Commission to uphold the findings of its team in June, and place University of Phoenix on probation until fall of 2014. The university will have to prove to the Higher Learning Commission, or HLC, that it has fixed the issues identified by that time, Dobell reported, adding that the university could lose its accreditation if the HLC determines that it is still not in compliance. While the analyst believes that the University of Phoenix's accreditation status will affect Apollo's shares until the university is removed from probation, he thinks it is "extremely unlikely" that the school will lose its accreditation. Dobell maintained a Market Perform rating on Apollo. He noted that the following for-profit education companies have obtained accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission: Bridgepoint (BPI), DeVry (DV), Grand Canyon University (LOPE); American Public University (APEI); Capella University (CPLA); Career Education (CECO); Education Management (EDMC); National American University (NAUH); Corinthian (COCO); and Kaplan (WPO). In early trading, shares of Apollo are down 24c to $17.59.

14:40 EDTESIITT Educational responds to Rohit Chopra letter
Nicole Elam, vice president of government relations and external affairs for ITT Educational Services, issued the following statement in response to a letter from Rohit Chopra, former student loan ombudsman for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to investors dated June 24, 2015: "Putting aside the troubling fact that Mr. Rohit Chopra is attempting to impact investors of a publicly traded company with information he received while in an official capacity at a U.S. governmental agency, his letter is a perfect example of the myopic view pervading some in D.C. regarding taxpaying educational institutions. The fact that he would write such a letter to investors days after leaving the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau trumpeting mere allegations against the company demonstrates a personal bias against our institutions and an unwillingness to allow for due process to work, the cornerstone of the U.S. legal system. Allegations are not facts and we think our investors will not take action based on simple assertions from someone with an ideological axe to grind."
10:40 EDTESIITT Educational says CSAAVE suspension put on hold by judge
ITT Educational issued a public notice, dated June 23, stating that the California State Approving Agency for Veterans Education, a division of the California Department of Veterans Affairs, previously issued a suspension of approval to all 15 California institutions owned and operated by ITT Educational, doing business as ITT Technical Institute. "On June 23, 2015, the Honorable Judge William Claster of the Orange County Superior Court issued an order staying CSAAVE’s suspension of approval of ITT’s courses for enrollment by veteran students, pending the Court’s adjudication of ITT’s petition for peremptory writ of mandate on or after August 21, 2015. While this stay is in effect, CSAAVE’s suspension of ITT’s courses for enrollment by veteran students is lifted...While the suspension is stayed, veterans may enroll at ITT," the company stated in its notice.
