Mountain State University's accreditation will be extended through the end of 2012.
In June, the Higher Learning Commission revoked the school's accreditation; effective August 27th, because of leadership, organizational and integrity issues. Mountain State filed an extension request and said they plan to appeal the decision.
This week, the Higher Learning Commission extended Mountain State University's accreditation until December 31, 2012. This means that students who complete a degree by the end of the year will graduate from an accredited university.
A spokesperson for Mountain State University says they are disappointed the extension until mid 2013 was not granted, but this extension will give the university a chance to continue operations during the appeal process.
