Lon Morris, Jarvis Christian College given warnings by accrediting agency
EAST TEXAS — Jarvis Christian College in Hawkins has been placed on a six-month warning by its accrediting agency after not being in compliance with several core requirements, mostly related to finances and audits.
Lon Morris College in Jacksonville also was placed on a 12-month warning by the same agency for noncompliance issues, according to the Southern Association of Colleges and School Commission on Colleges, which accredits Jarvis Christian and Lon Morris.
The board of trustees for the commission met Dec. 5, placing Jarvis and Lon Morrison on the warnings list. Both colleges are still accredited at this time, the commission said.
The warnings are public sanctions imposed because of “significant noncompliance with the core requirements, comprehensive standards or the federal requirements of the principles of accreditation of the commission, failure to make timely and significant progress toward correcting the deficiencies that led to the finding of noncompliance, or failure to comply with commission policies and procedures.”
