When first approached in Sept of 2001 for the MBA program, I was quite happy to enroll. Then came the "hacker" attack and closed the website for almost 10 months.

Now the school is revamped and seeking accreditation, but is charging $100. to continue in the program with a $19.95 per month access charge.

I just completed all the requirements for the final exam and sent it to the university address and used tracking for my package. It is being returned for adressee not known.

Now I am without recourse and degree.

U.of Advanced Research in Hilo,Hi. was ahead of its time!

AUTHOR: REAL ESTATE GRAD - ()

The University of Advanced Research in Hilo,Hi. was way ahead its time in Eductional Delivery methods!

You could get a degree by having life experiences and training that you got for licenses,para-professions,and experience you had on the job! I took a short exam as well, and I was told that in Hawaii,

that all degrees are equal by law, if they have acceditation or not! and UAR did NOT! So the State of Hawaii allowed them to operate,and to issue degrees to anyone they felt qualified and passed the exam, or took a course of study and passed the exams. The State of Hawaii should make good on the degrees granted by the UAR, since they are the ones at fault, not UAR!  The accreditation process in America is nothing but a big joke, its a money making racket! What difference does it really make how someone learns something, a trade or a profession, as long as the person knows what they are talking about and can do the job?? Even people with accredited degrees can't tie their own shoes, or are unemployed, deep in debt, and have NO EXPERIENCE AT ALL!! So who do you want to operate on you when ur sick, the guy with the degree or the guy who has performed the operation many times without any problems?? Im in real estate, and recently I wanted to list and sell a piece of property for a lawyer, and the lawyer what commission I charged, and I told the lawyer. The said "thats more then I get as lawyer!" and I said,"I know, thats why my parents sent me to real estate school and not law school"!!  America is in trouble, and all the kids are running to school to get a degree, and go into debt they may never be able to repay. With the internet today, video streaming, DVD"S, E-books, trade schools, colleges and universities are accedited by other organizations, not just the one the US dept of Education uses! I wonder who is on the take in that department in the government?? how much money under the table does it cost to get a college or university accedited today?? and with that acceditation, you can become unemployed or never employed, thats even better!! So who cares how u learned what u do, as long as you can do it, and if u can't, just fire them from the job! how much deadwood is working today? lots of it ! and how much is in the government- all of it!!   Someone needs to wake up and get people back to work! NOW! degree or no degree, a job is worth having, not a degree!! I like to eat on a regular basis!!  a student with a degree!

UAR offers last chance for current students

AUTHOR: Thomas - (U.S.A.)

UAR has via email postings at their web site to offer all current students their opportunity to earn their degree, before the doors close permanently.

I again wish to say that I retract any and all negative reports against UAR from this website.
