CHEYNEY, Pa. (AP) - A historically black university in eastern Pennsylvania has been placed on probation over financial concerns raised by the association that accredits colleges and university.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (https://bit.ly/1QaG7R4 ) Cheyney University has two years two correct the issues raised by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education or face losing accreditation. That loss would mean none of the school’s students would be eligible for state or federal aid.

The university’s interim president, Frank Pogue, and the chancellor of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, Frank Brogan, say they’re committed to fixing the problems.

The school has been running a deficit and experienced a 30 percent enrollment drop this year.

Pogue says administrators had begun meeting to answer commission concerns by a Sept. 1 deadline.
