Extension of Accreditation Grant

As published, a March 17, 2020 guidance document from the USDE states that accrediting agencies have the discretion to extend terms of accreditation, for a reasonable period of time during the COVID-19 interruption. Due to an extended period of interrupted educational and operational activities, the Commission granted a seven-month extension on the renewal of accreditation for the institution.
