CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Most credits earned by students at Mountain State University will either be counted as electives or as nothing at the University of Charleston.The universities released a list of course equivalencies Friday.
UC is taking over Mountain State's campuses in Beckley and Martinsburg so students can complete their degrees following the school's loss of accreditation. Other Mountain State students also can complete their degrees through UC.The Charleston Daily Mail reports 342 of the 560 courses released by the universities will either count as credit for elective courses or not at all.
In June, the Higher Learning Commission revoked Mountain State's accreditation because of leadership, organizational and integrity issues. The accreditation later was extended to Dec. 31. Mountain State plans to appeal its loss of accreditation.
