Winston-Salem, NC -- The UNC School of the Arts has been placed on a 12-month warning by the accrediting body for Southern colleges and universities after a review showed what the agency called "significant noncompliance."
The Winston-Salem Journal reports the warning was issued by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. It follows a review of UNCSA's fifth-year interim report.
According to the commission's board of trustees, UNCSA had shown "significant noncompliance" in the size of its faculty, institutional effectiveness, Quality Enhancement Plan, complaint procedures and student complaints.
The warning was announced on Friday after the board's decision on June 20.
Provost David Nelson said UNCSA has not received specific information about the areas of concern, but added that the school expects to get more detailed information in July.
