Update Re AUC’s Application Process to the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education (MDHE)
May 29, 2013
On April 18, 2013, AUC officials met with the MDHE officials to discuss the status of AUC’s application seeking degree-granting authority. Subsequent to the meeting, AUC received a letter from the MDHE seeking further answers to several questions that mainly had to do with organization and governance, finance (including capital/facilities improvements) and enrollment planning. A deadline of May 24, 2013 was given for AUC to respond. AUC officials, with the assistance of its attorneys, responded to all MDHE questions and hand-delivered them on May 23, a day before the deadline. AUC awaits to hear next from the MDHE.
