Accrediting Agency Issues Warning to Alabama State

MONTGOMERY, Ala. ― An accrediting agency has issued a warning to Alabama State University for failing to comply with several accreditation standards.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools issued the warning to ASU late last week, saying the school hasn’t complied with standards on board of trustees governance, financial stability and Title IV funding issues.

University officials said in a statement that the school will comply with whatever improvements SACS recommends. The school’s warning period lasts for six months.
