YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio – April 21, 2011 – A review team of the Ohio Board of Regents has asked the Chancellor to grant provisional approval of Antioch College's bachelor's degree program.
The team says, in part, that "Antioch College meets the Chancellor's standards for undergraduate programs and the review team recommends provisional authorization for the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees." The full text of the provisional approval can be found by visiting the Ohio Board of Regents' Web site.
This positive review from the site team is a critical first step as Antioch advances toward candidacy for regional accreditation.
