Oakland City University has agreed to pay $5.3 million to the federal government to resolve charges that it paid incentive compensation to its admissions and recruitment counselors. The action violates provisions of the Higher Education Act. An unnamed whistleblower, who was a former employee, will receive $1.4 million of the settlement. The case against the Evansville-area liberal arts school was brought by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Indianapolis.
