The short answer is yes.  It is why proper accreditation is very important when choosing a school.  The Big 3 all have the highest legitimate form of accreditation (RA = Regionally accredited); https://www.chea.org/regional-accrediting-organizations

I think it takes a minimum of 3 years to get accreditation. And you'd probably need faculty with masters degrees from RA schools.
Working on second TESU degree. Graduate in June or Sept?
First Masters complete. Choosing next Masters / grad cert.
TESU BSBA (with ASNSM) in March 2018.

Depends on what you mean by university. If you start a business called Cecilgambe7 University LLC and offer an ACE class or two maybe not that much.

Yes, Trump University Was a Massive Scam - https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/tr...sity-scam/

The organization was not an accredited university or college...Trump University was also the subject of two class action lawsuits in federal court. The lawsuits centered around allegations that Trump University defrauded its students by using misleading marketing practices and engaging in aggressive sales tactics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trump_University
