Accrediting Decisions in Southern Association

The Southern accrediting group has responsibility for the region with most of the historically black colleges -- and sometimes has disputes with those institutions. But in this week's round of decisions two historically black colleges were removed from warning status (Florida Memorial University and South Carolina State University) and one was removed from the probation list (Alabama A&M University).
