If they are working on it is irrelevant. They are not accredited. They are not even a candidate for accreditation.

Huh? Completely non-sensical. Where we are now is that Herguan is a non-accredited diploma mill.

Potential doesn't matter. Actually BEING accredited would matter. Herguan is a non-accredited diploma mill.

The only "change" I am seeing is somebody with a different handle shilling for them.
I hope they paid you in cash for your fake review.
They also apparently pay for fake reviews on some obscure blogs. All things only a desperate diploma mill would do.

The "potential" is exactly zero.
Herguan is a diploma mill. People should stay far far away from them. And in particular foreigners should avoid this fraud if they want to have any future in the US.
Herguan will end up like TVU and UNVA.

ICE served Herguan with a notice of intent to withdraw their SEVP certification.
This essentially means that Herguan is finished.

And the Herguan CEO has been arrested: http://www.mercurynews.com/peninsula/ci_21222...

This fraud is over.
As was said before: "Herguan will end up like TVU and UNVA." And it indeed did.

Then how the embassy people have given the students visa as they follow very strict rules in stamping a visa.They will see the complete history of students and why don't they suggest to the student not to join in such unregistered university.

The typical modus operandi is that people sign up with real universities, get visas for that, and change to these diploma mills as soon as they come to the US.
This was exposed when TVU got raided. The consulates had only issued about 100 visas to students to attend TVU, but TVU had 1500 "students".
In other words, the students know very well that it is a fraud. They are willing participants in the fraud.

I suggest Herguan students file a class lawsuit against Jerry Wang and his parents (Su Tong, CFO of Herguan, and Ying Wang, President of Herguan) and get some money back. According to Page 9 of http://ia600701.us.archive.org/19/items/gov.u... ..., the ONLY program of Herguan certified by SEVP to issue Forms I-20 is Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine, NOT MSCS, MSEE and MBA. That means it is illegal for Herguan to issue I-20s in MSCS, MSEE and MBA programs to international students and collect so much money.

As you might know, Jerry Wang and his parents also own another acupuncture school called University of East West Medicine (UEWM). The only programs of UEWM certified by SEVP to issue Forms I-20 are also acupuncture related. However, under the camouflage of UEWM certificate, Jerry Wang and his parents also issued many I-20s in MSCS, MSEE and MBA programs to international students and allowed them to abuse CPT. That is the secrete recipe why Wang's family could accumulate a lot of money in a short period of time and acquire a NINE-MILLION-DOLLAR building at the current location.

"
A student, who said her parents had taken a loan of about $30,000 for her studies, said, "I do not want my parents to know about this. But I want them (Herguan) to return my fee so I can enroll in another university."

Herguan has now lost their SEVP approval:

All the "students" are now illegal. They all killed their future in the US.
That's what they got for trying to get around the US laws.

Herguan University is not accredited by any recognized accreditation organization. It is on the Oregon Office of Degree Authorization list of unaccredited colleges.

The University's MBA, MSCS, and MSEE programs operate with approval from the California Department of Consumer Affairs' Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education. The Bureau is not an accreditation agency and does not confer accreditation status to educational institutions.
On August 2, 2012, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) served Herguan with a notice of intent to withdraw its SEVP certification. Herguan's CEO has been indicted on visa fraud charges.
On September 18, 2012, ICE revoked Herguan's SEVP approval, but rescinded that decision a day later. According to ICE, Herguan's lawyer had sent the response to a wrong email address. The San Jose Mercury News reported on evidence that Herguan officials tried to get help from local and state politicians regarding the ICE investigation.

The enrollment practices of Herguan have been compared to Tri-Valley University, whose founder had previously worked as an adjunct faculty member at Herguan. The Chronicle of Higher Education claims Herguan targets international students looking for full-time or part-time internships. The enrollment as of August 2012 is around 450 people, of which 400 are from India.

Herguan obtained government approval to admit foreign students based on an application that included letters purporting to be from accredited colleges stating that they would accept credits from Herguan for transfer students. However, the letters were disclaimed by those colleges. An official at another college stated that Herguan staff offered payments in exchange for recognition. However, as recently as late 2010, most of Herguan's students were employed outside of California in full-time jobs, an apparent violation of the condition of their visas requiring them to be full-time students taking no more than one on-line class each term. This practice may have been curtailed in December 2010 when Herguan's president sent letters to all students requiring them to return to California. The president, however, backtracked later, and offered students $500 to return for classes for six days.
Several Herguan staff claimed that otherwise failing students had been able to buy passing grades by paying more money to the school. Prospective students have claimed students get paid $1200 for each student who they refer to the school. The school also maintained "educational consultants" who were paid for students they referred, most of whom were based in Hyderabad, India.
