Caldwell University has agreed to pay the U.S. $4.8 million to resolve allegations that it participated in a scheme to defraud a federal veterans education program, according to the U.S. Attorney's New Jersey District Office On Friday.

U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito estimated the government paid over $24 million in tuition benefits to the university to provide online classes to "thousands" of veterans under the Post 9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Act.  Those classes were in fact developed, taught and administrated by a subcontractor, Ed4Mil correspondence school in Pennsylvania, which was not approved to received education benefits.
