GRAMBLING - Grambling State University's accreditation warning has been lifted.
The university announced Tuesday that it had received notification from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools that the six-month warning issued in June had been removed.
The warning required the school to address issues related to financial aid and moveable property, such as computers and calculators.
Grambling State's president, Frank Pogue, says the university has worked to improve its accounting and finances. He also noted that the school recently received a clean state audit for the fiscal year that ended June 30.
Accreditation is a benchmark used to judge the worth of a school, reviewing governance, finance and integrity issues. It can affect the value of a degree in a job market and a school's ability to attract faculty and students.
