Florida A&M University is being placed on a year-long probation by a regional accrediting panel after a series of scandals at the school, including the hazing death of a drum major.

 

FAMU officials were informed Tuesday by the Southern Association of College and Schools that its accreditation is in jeopardy.

 

If FAMU’s accreditation is revoked, students won’t be eligible for federal financial aid.

Interim President Larry Robinson stressed that the probation does not affect the current accreditation of academic programs.

 

SACS took the steps because of several problems, including the revelation that audits were not finished and false summaries were distributed. Robinson also said that SACS raised questions about student safety in the wake of the death of Robert Champion as well as questions about the finances of the Marching 100.
