Students at Lynn University soon will be able to earn 15 credits by completing a 16-week academic program in technology design at a distant campus of General Assembly, the largest of the coding boot camps.
The latest settlements show that federal inquiries into how colleges handle sexual assault are growing longer, tougher, and more damning.

It is unclear whether the college will appeal or whether the Weills will give any of their gift without the name change.
