As reported in The St. John’s Telegram, Canadian Province has won their legal case against the All Saints University of Medicine in Aruba in regards to granting student loans to the university. The University learned the hard way that when one misrepresents themselves for gain, one usually must produce what you claimed you had in the first place, or forfeit the initial contract that was only gained by false claims.
Medical students from this province won’t be getting student loans to attend university in Aruba – not that any have applied.
The All Saints University of Medicine in Aruba took this province’s Education Department to court over the department’s decision to suspend student loan status that it had previously granted to the university.
The province was justified in choosing to revoke that initial decision, says Supreme Court Justice Robert Hall, who presided over the arguments.
Furthermore, the medical school in Aruba – which has never had an applicant from this province – will have to pay the province’s legal fees in relation to the case.
It appears that the All Saints University of Medicine in Aruba claimed that it had Title IV status, only to find out that it did not.
The province contended that a “major consideration,” in allowing the designation was that the university had what’s known as Title IV funding status from the United States, which includes a stringent evaluation process and investigation of schools.
Despite advertising on its website that the medical school had Title IV status, the province became aware that, in fact, it did not.
As a result, the Education Department sent a letter to the school revoking the designation allowing student loans to local students.
