YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio (AP) — A small, western Ohio liberal arts college that reopened as an independent school after a three-year shutdown has been named a candidate for accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission.
Antioch College in Yellow Springs also says its request for early initial accreditation was granted, meaning a decision could come as early as June 2016.
The Dayton Daily News reported Monday (http://bit.ly/1luTmih ) that being named a candidate means students will have access to federal financial aid, including loans and Pell Grants.
College President Mark Roosevelt says the school is the only liberal arts college in the country seeking accreditation.
The college had closed in 2008 amid financial problems and reopened with the help of an alumni-led group.
