Default Not lookin' so good...

Hi

Not much of an update - appears Andy never surfaced. I attempted to contact him myself - no reply.

http://www.niu-edu.us/

This is a page for Newport International that announces its "new" California location. The page isn't much other than a place-holder; the buttons don't work yet. The location is NOT the same as Janus University, which is the reincarnation of the former Newport University.

Both the Janus and NIU sites retain the "shield" graphic and colour scheme long common to Newport and Newport International. All "whois" info references for NIU lead back to old info - including locations in Wyoming, which Newport International U. is supposed to have vacated.

Janus at www.janusuniversity.edu is State-approved (BPPE - Cal.) and unaccredited. I'm guessing that although unaccredited, it has a .edu domain because its predecessor Newport had one, grandfathered-in under the 2001 rule. Fairly expensive for an unaccredited school and I don't doubt one could find a DETC or other NA school somewhere in the price range. I'm not against unaccredited schools per se, but I can't see this one as a particularly good choice. Newport International? No indication yet (on the site) of State Approval. Plus - it has long been controversial both in the US and abroad. See the WIKI. For now, I'd choose another school. Who knows - someday it might undergo a completely fantastic re-branding, maybe even complete with accreditation - - but would you really want to bet money on that?
