Susan Xiao-Ping Su, the former president of Tri-Valley University in Pleasanton, California, was arrested on Monday for fraud.
The San Francisco Chronicle has more:
Prosectuors say while she was president of Tri-Valley University, Su submitted fraudulent documents in support of applications to admit foreign students on student visas.
Once the applications were approved, Su then allegedly issued visa-related documents to student aliens in exchange for "tuition and fees."
Prosecutors say Su took in more than $3.2 million in the alleged scheme.
The university enrolled 1,555 students, 95% of them from India. The Indian government is asking for leniency for the students who applied for visas through the school.
