Degrees-R-Us is an unaccredited institution that offers degrees of higher learning. USA Today reported it is a diploma mill.[1] In 2004, it was included in a Senate investigation.[2]

The operation was run by a disbarred attorney from his Las Vegas home and "a GAO investigator ordered those bogus degrees in the name of Sen. Susan Collins (R) of Maine, who had commissioned the agency to investigate the ease of purchasing such degrees."[2][dead link]
