Edinburg (KFXV) — UTRGV is put on probation and may lose its accreditation.
According to the accreditation agency’s policy, probation which lasts a year “is usually, but not necessarily, invoked as the last step before an institution is removed from membership.”
Students who attend unaccredited schools might not qualify for financial aid, and many employers require that their applicants be graduates of accredited schools.
UTRGV President Guy Bailey notified the campus community in an e-mail this morning and will receive more information in Mid-January.
