An academic accreditation agency has issued a warning for Tuskegee University and extended a warning for Alabama State University.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, or SACS, extended ASU’s warning for a second time, this time for a full year, and put Tuskegee on a 12-month warning period.

Warning status means a review has found “significant non-compliance” with SACS requirements, but the institution retains its accreditation.


ASU said in a statement that the school continues to work to comply with SACS requirements.

A Tuskegee spokesman said university officials couldn’t immediately comment because they hadn’t gotten the details of the warning. Tuskegee President Brian L. Johnson said in a statement earlier this week that the school would work to ensure compliance and address problem areas.
