CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The association that accredits law schools has put the for-profit Charlotte School of Law on probation as it seeks reports on its admission practices and other information.

Multiple media outlets report the American Bar Association put the school on probation this week.

Among the ABA’s requirements is that the school report on admission data and practices by Dec. 15, explaining whether and how it uses factors other than grade-point averages and LSAT scores.

Within five business days, the school must notify students that it is on probation and publish the notice on its website. As of Friday morning, the school’s site described the school as “fully approved” by the ABA.

WSOC-TV reports the school opened without accreditation in 2006. The Bar Association gave it provisional approval in 2008, and full approval in 2011.
