Alabama A&M on SACS probation for noncompliance

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Alabama A&M University has been put on probation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

President Beverly Edmond said the 133-year-old historically black university was put on probation for not complying with several of SACS' Principals of Accreditation but that specifics were not available Wednesday.

She said the news isn't good for A&M but stressed that the school is still fully accredited and none of the degrees it awards are in jeopardy.
