MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Bishop State Community College President James Lowe says a review by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools finds the school has met its requirements, a ruling
that could remove the school from probation.
Lowe says a SACS team will report its findings to the full association in December. He says that's when a final decision on whether the school in Mobile is taken off probation or loses its accreditation.
Lowe says he's hopeful Bishop State will be cleared.
SACS first put Bishop State on probation in December 2006 after
numerous financial and academic problems were discovered at the
two-year college. The accreditating agency extended that status twice in 2007.
