Records entered into evidence in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina late last month by federal prosecutors listed the following people among some 2,200 recipients of "degrees" from Northwestern College of Allied Science, American Western University, or Southwestern University from 1978 through April 15 of this year. Investigators say the list is incomplete because some records were burned in a house fire. The individuals in the verbatim listing below received education or education-related credentials. Many others received credentials in such fields as biology, mathematics, health sciences, computer sciences, and public administration.
