A W.V. university placed on probation by Higher Learning Commission

By: | March 9, 2021

The HLC made its decision on February 25, 2021, and its website shows the probation status remains in place as of today, March 8, 2021.

HLC took this action because it determined that the institution is out of compliance with HLC’s Criteria for Accreditation according to the their public disclosure letter. The HLC also says that while on probation, the institution remains accredited, and it has the opportunity to remedy the issues that led to the sanction.

What This Means for Students
The HLC says that “in most cases, other colleges and universities will continue to accept the institution’s credits in transfer or for admission to a higher degree program. All colleges and universities define their own transfer and admission policies. Students interested in pursuing a higher degree or transferring should contact the college or university they plan to attend so that they are knowledgeable about the admission and transfer policies for that college or university.”
