Sojourner-Douglass College will lose its accreditation because of its shaky finances, The Baltimore Sun reports. The Baltimore institution’s appeal was rejected last week by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
State officials told the Sun they would help students at the college transfer to other institutions. The loss of accreditation is effective June 30.
The accreditor first expressed concern about the college’s finances in 2011. It ordered the college in March of last year to demonstrate why its accreditation should be reaffirmed.
