GWIS issues worthless diplomas. It has zero accreditation in the USA. It is only registered to operate in the wild west of charter schools known as Florida. The Orlando address is a mailandmore front store. And the one in Ontario, California? They added those photoshopped pics and info when someone actually called them on their lies because they just googled the Florida address. GWIS has NO physical school or location in the USA. Someone added those pics to make it look real. What a total joke. Philip Nguyen is a total fraud. His law degree is a fraud from a diploma mill shut down by the US Dept of Justice/FBI. And Philip Nguyen was ordered to stop representing himself as a lawyer by the WA State Bar. All of that sounds like it might be a bit too much, but please follow the links below for all the proof you need.

"Dear Mr. Nguyen:
The Practice of Law Board was created by order of the
Washington State Supreme Court, General Rule (GR) 25. The Board
is charged with the investigation of allegations of unauthorized
practice of law in Washington. Revised Code of Washington (RCW)
2.48.180 states that a nonlawyer practicing law or holding himself out
as entitled to practice law constitutes the unauthorized practice of law.
Court rule GR 24 defines the practice of law. The unauthorized
practice of law is a crime in Washington." "You are not a lawyer. RCW 2.48.180(2)(a) states that a non-lawyer practicing law or holding himself out as entitled to do so constitutes the unauthorized practice of law."

According to the GWIS website:
Philip Nguyen received his Juris Doctorate from Law School of Columbus University his experience in both business and law Philip manage the whole office of lawyers practicing in different specialties including business, immigration, civil, family, tax, bankruptcy, and criminal law,
http://gwisedu.com/about-2/staff-and-faculties/
But a quick search finds that Columbus University was one of the most famous of recent diploma mills. A life experience based degree where folks would have over thousands of dollars in exchange for a worthless degree or diploma...
Columbus University is on the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board's list of institutions whose degrees are illegal to use in Texas, because degrees from such institutions have been found to be "fraudulent or substandard".
https://en.wikipedia.org/wi…/Columbus_University_(Louisiana)
"TV station WWLTV is reporting that Columbus University online of Louisiana, a non accredited online school, is the target of an FBI investigation for diploma mill fraud and the selling of fake diplomas online."

Florida Address of GWIS:
ADDRESS
Mail & More
5764 N Orange Blossom Trl
Orlando, FL 32810
http://www.mailandmore.com/
Ontario, CA, USA Address of GWIS
http://www.calepcenter.com/
http://gwisedu.com/about-2/ontario-campus/
Obviously the same pics can be seen on both sites and the ones on the GWIS site were simply photoshopped.

Accreditation
The Florida Department of Education does not accredit, regulate, approve, or license K-12 private schools. Additionally, the Florida Department of Education does not officially recognize any of the various agencies that accredit private schools.
Section 1002.42, Florida Statutes, requires K-12 private schools to register with the department by completing an annual survey each year and explicitly provides that submitting annual survey data and being listed in the directory of private schools should not be used by any private school to imply approval or accreditation by the state.
http://www.fldoe.org/…/s…/private-schools/accreditation.stml
But the GWIS website implies that the the school is indeed recognized and accredited:

Of course it's gonna be Florida. Very Happy

I nearly took a job with them outside of Saigon. It seemed to be that we would be dispatched to Vietnamese public schools and teach there but be employees of GWIS. The pay seemed good and everything seemed above board but declined due to a better opportunity coming up last minute.

Have to admit that I had wondered if I had made the right decision and now glad to see that I had dodged a bullet. Cheers for sharing, Prof.
