2 NJ colleges may lose accreditation

UNION TOWNSHIP - Middle States Commission on Higher Education assesses colleges in New Jersey to make sure they meet certain standards for accreditation. Now the commission says that Kean University and Essex County College fall short in a couple of areas.

The two colleges were warned last month that their systems for assessing goal achievements for students, as well as other schools, are inadequate.

Kean University officials say their own internal review revealed the same problems and that the commission's warning was anticipated. They say prospective students should not be afraid to enroll.

Loss of accreditation could make it difficult for students to transfer their credits or use their degrees to get into graduate school.
