The University of Louisville has been placed on a one-year probationary period by its accrediting agency, following Gov. Matt Bevin’s interference with the university’s board officials.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) is allowing UofL to maintain its accreditation, but it will be placed on a one-year probation with the possibility of an additional year.

Bevin released a statement on Twitter earlier today. It said, “UofL’s accreditation is not at risk, nor will it ever be at risk because of any action taken by Gov. Bevin. Anyone who argues otherwise does not have UofL’s best interest at heart.”

The SACSCOC will deliver their findings in early 2017, in regards to UofL’s issues with Core Requirement 2. UofL will have time to present their own findings that will bring the university into compliance, according to WLKY.
