"The students themselves, in short, had been participating knowingly in a form of fraud, and are now rioting because it's been exposed, and they won't be able to profit from it."

I agree with the first commenter. If the university says they're graduating with ZhengZhou's name on it, then it means the university is committing their own reputation on this school's graduates. If they're paying extra money for the privilege, it's even clearer: we'll spend your money to bring you up to ZhengZhou standards.
Sure, the sociological value of colleges from a business perspective is that they spend a lot of time finding good/smart workers and brand it. But a college IS also about who/what you'll be exposed to at the university.
The policy, whether coming from the gov't or ZhengZhou, is giving up on their promise to the students. The current students should have been grandfathered and the policy should only have applied to incoming classes.

what revolting about students is the way they can hone in on a half smoked cigarette buried under four inches of last weeks snow and somehow manage to get it lit and finish it off... gross.
