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.
