Fraudulent institutions of higher education, sometimes lacking accreditation, which grant diplomas that are either fake or worthless. Historically a they have not been accredited, but with the increase of online schools, most now are accredited and offer a course load so easy, or based on loosely defined "life experience", so as to render their education valueless.

Also known as a Degree Mill
Well known places that are diploma mills include Trinity Southern University, Walden University, Trump University, Wesleyan International University, and Prixo Southern University.

This now defunct diploma mill from Texas gave an MBA to a house cat named Colby Nolan for $399. Unfortunately for the school, the house cat belonged to the Pennsylvania attorney general's office who was investigating the school. So the term is now used to describe any bullshit college with little credibility or that just sells degrees.
Fuck yeah I have a degree. I have a PhD in underwater marble stacking from Trinity Southern University.

You're thinking about going to Walden University? Don't do that, that school is sooo a Trinity Southern University.
