Herguan University is listed as a degree mill for many years. In many states of US it is illegal to use its degree. According to BPPE, only MBA program is approved, others, such as MSEE and MSCS are not even approved. Getting degree from such unaccredited schools might not get visa to start with (many failed case), might not use it for 20,000 advanced H1-B (many failed cases), might not get OPT and OPT extension (many failed case) and might not useful for immigration benefit (Green Card and US citizen). There is really no value to attend such school.

There are many accredited universities in Silicon Valley area for your choice.

Kumar you are so true i joined and got duped by this college, they promise you for F1 and ask you to attend online class, but once they collect fee they ask you to come on campus.

Did anyone hear about what is happening at Herguan right now? They want to stop all online courses two weeks before classes end. But it not understandable how they can think that all online students can move to Sunnyvale within one week. Did anyone hear about their real reasons? Do they have to shot their doors for good?

Per SEVP, "F-1 students enrolled in classes for credit or classroom hours, no more than the equivalent of one class or three credits per session, term, semester, trimester, or quarter may be counted toward the full course of study requirement if the class is taken on-line or through distance education and does not require the student's physical attendance for classes". So, A student can take one OL course and should continue the other classes as classroom courses. For an accredited university, It is Impossible to provide all the classes On-line. HGU is now in the process of getting accreditation, so they are asking non-CPT students to present for some classes at the University. So, how do you think you can be in NY and do all online courses in all seasons from CA(Bull Shit). Pls spend some time in the classroom and make ur self present there and make the univ. good and help in their accreditation process. This really helps the future students. Once it gets the accreditation, u will get stamping on this in HYD Consulate.

frnds, nothing is been fake here. Student should be aware of SEVP Rules on Online courses and act accordingly when a college is saying all the courses can be taken On-line. You guys want to enjoy CPT from day one and you scold HGU when it is giving it for free(where as ITU and TVU charges for this). CPT regulations are college dependent and DSO determines them( know the SEVP rules). So, HGU students can get CPT/OPT, and hopefully can also get H1(refer rules). So, believe the fact that you should attend for classes when a univ is accredited or when it is trying for accreditation, it should show the proofs of classroom presence of students to the Gov. Thats what they are asking from students now. Help out them, It will be Fruitful for ur future.(dont speak anything unless, you know the SEVP and ICE Rules of running a college), If u want to say something, know and then analyze and speak out. we are there to understand if that is true.

Arohi, I should laugh at you wn u speak something like that. I am nt sure wt u know about US schools and SEVP ICE Rules. Wn u know them u wouldn't be able to say any thing like that. SHOW me 1 accredited college offering all semesters and all classes online. If there are such, y did u not go there and enjoy the time whereever u want. The fact is If a College is saying all courses can be taken Online without seeing college for 1 time atleast in a trimester that's not correct(and dont call they are fraud). HGU, ITU, TVU are non-accredited colleges and they say classes are on-line and that's the reason students are coming to these colleges from HYD. U know wn these colleges start trying for getting the accreditation, they have to follow the SEVP rules and then you will know why they are asking u to come to college.

Any Student, Pls dont Expect that you can be somewhere and you can do all courses On-line in you entire MS duration. No College can do this in US and it will never happen in US(coz Immigration has strict rules on this). Think that you are a non-immigrant and you are coming to do MS and you think you dont require to see the college and dont require speaking to prof's. How Could it be possible? How Should Immigration officials understand this? Think all these and as I know HGU is good enough. They follow rules and Insist you to act upon. Thats It!

Guys, If you don't know the fact, pls don't speak out. Miami school Case is different. And pls don't spoil the prospective student minds. when u are living in US, u need to know Immigration Rules for F1 students and act upon. If you don't know, blame ur self and it shame on you. Don't blame the colleges(Any College). Co-operate with the college people and understand the rules and act accordingly.

The fact is that I am a student of HGU..:), I also little nervous after seeing the mail. Later I just go though the SEVP and ICE rules and come to know that there is a way to continue online if we are on CPT and that you can do your degree mostly(not all the times & not in all conditions) without seeing the college and this is as per LAW. Luckily, I am on CPT and Hopefully I can continue CPT for another 2 trimesters and can complete masters. The fact that people should know is non-accredited colleges will all say Full On-line, coz they need the students initially to build up the college. when a univ like HGU needs accreditation, they start looking at LAW and put students like US in trouble. But I am sure every student know that univ. like HGU, ITU and TVU will someday create the trouble like this. But all of us want to enjoy the CPT status from day1 and we Indulge to do this. However, I am sure there is solution if you are on CPT already. Cheers....:)

Herguan is Fraud

Just like TVU is a fraud.
Herguan is not accredited.
Students on F1 have to physically attend classes (only a max. of 3 credits can be online), so an organization advertising all-online classes to F1 students is obviously fake.
Herguan, like TVU, is basically selling CPT, which is also illegal.
A fake degree from them can not be used for an H1 or a GC. Only degrees from accredited universities can be used for an H1 or a GC.

Check the BPPE of California state database and found out that only MBA program is approved by BPPE. Other programs are not approved and suppose can not issue I-20s at all. If you are looking for MS degrees other than its MBA, the degrees obviously is worthless and might not be able to convert for OPT/CPT and advanced H1 visa. Be careful this degree mill.
Herguan University has a lot of bad record. If any one would like know more about it, I can repost the internet articles regarding bad history of Herguan for you.
