MIAMI, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MedVance on Wednesday entered into an Assurance of Voluntary Compliance (AVC) with the Florida Attorney General confirming it will continue to abide by federal and state laws and increase its efforts to communicate with students about financial aid and enrollment.
The Assurance of Voluntary Compliance released by the Florida Attorney General's Office acknowledges MedVance's cooperation, contains no admissions or findings of wrongdoing, and affirms it "contains neither findings of fact or conclusions of law."
The Florida AG began the investigation of MedVance on the basis of eight student complaints registered with the state out of 9,000 student experiences over a four year period. While MedVance vigorously contested the allegations originally made against it throughout the process, as well as the basis for the investigation, MedVance worked collaboratively with the Florida Attorney General to ensure the real winners in this agreement are Florida's students.
Former MedVance students who meet established qualifications will be welcomed back to the Institute for additional training at reduced cost or no cost to them.
"We entered into the AVC to affirm our commitment to providing accurate information to prospective students and a quality education to those students who enroll in our programs. There should be no question where we stand on quality, integrity, and accountability," said MedVance President and CEO Duncan Anderson.
"Despite our vigorous disagreements with the allegations, we wanted to put these issues to rest in a responsible manner and this agreement with the Florida Attorney General does that. We cooperated fully with the Attorney General's office throughout the investigation and, to our knowledge, are the first of eight schools under investigation to sign such an agreement," he added.
MedVance remains committed to providing an outstanding education experience so its students achieve their full potential. According to Anderson, MedVance campuses continually explore ways to enhance the MedVance student experience.
Hundreds of students are enrolled at MedVance campuses, receiving the education and training they need to advance their careers. Thousands more have graduated and are gainfully employed in new professional career paths that contribute to their respective community economies, Anderson noted.
