[ 'Stealth U' in Iowa City duped many, experts say] ", Ryan J. Foley, The Daily Iowan, published January 27, 2003, accessed February 21, 2007.] WAUC's website claims that "laws in the U.S.A. prohibit the recognition of global accreditation associations."

In March 2001, WAUC was reported to be using an executive suite in Henderson, Nevada as its address. [ [ 3 Unrecognized Accrediting Agencies] , "Chronicle of Higher Education", March 23, 2001.] As of June 2007, the organization's website lists an address in Beverly Hills, California.
