In October the Office of the Attorney General announced it would be investigating allegations of deception at five for-profit higher education companies: Kaplan Inc., the University of Phoenix, MedVance Institute, Argosy University, and Everest University.

Now three more schools — Keiser University, Concorde Career Colleges, and Sanford-Brown Institute — have been added to that list, reports the Bradenton Herald.

The companies are being investigated for “alleged misrepresentations regarding financial aid; alleged unfair/deceptive practices regarding recruitment, enrollment, placement, etc.,” according to the attorney general’s website.

Each company could be fined up to $10,000 per violation or $15,000 if the victim is a senior citizen or disabled.
