Higher Learning Commission Removes Bridgepoint Education's Ashford University From Notice Sanction

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges (HLC) removed the sanction of Notice from Ashford University on August 30, 2013. The Commission removed the University from Notice because its Board determined that the University had resolved the concerns that led to the institution being placed on Notice.

In a letter from the HLC, the Board stated it had removed the sanction against Ashford because the University had successfully established accredited status with the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WASC). The University's successful acquisition of accredited status with WASC signaled Ashford's intent to resign its accredited status with HLC, thereby ending the Higher Learning Commission's need to determine if the University meets HLC's jurisdictional requirements. WASC found the University to be in substantial compliance with WASC standards, including the same standards the Commission originally identified in placing the institution on Notice.
