“For hundreds of MSU students, that education has been stolen from them.”

The Higher Learning Commission has withdrawn its primary accreditation from Mountain State University, citing lack of leadership, resources, planning and oversight. West Virginia law firm, Hewitt & Salvatore PLLC is now helping students with next steps and possible legal action against MSU.
Accreditation establishes to the public and prospective employers that the students graduating from the accredited school are equipped and well educated. When a university loses accreditation, it can have negative ramifications. Any degrees completed after the accreditation is revoked will be considered illegitimate and unrecognized.
Greg Hewitt, a lawyer at Hewitt & Salvatore PLLC says poor management and inexcusable neglect on behalf of those running MSU has cost students years of hard work and thousands of dollars; they are offering free consultations to any MSU students that wish to take legal action.
“In an increasingly competitive workforce, a college education is becoming more and more valuable,” said Hewitt, “For hundreds of MSU students, that education has been stolen from them.”
This isn’t the first time MSU has had accreditation problems. Hewitt & Salvatore, PLLC, started taking cases representing MSU students after the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission was notified by the HLC citing problems of low pass rates on licensure exams and too few credentialed faculty. Mountain State University unsuccessfully appealed this action.
