College to issue statement Thursday about accreditation

Baltimore International College plans to issue a statement Thursday about the future of the institution because the school is expected to lose its accreditation.

According to a statement on the college's Facebook page, the school's "Board of Trustees met to seriously review all options for the College while keeping in mind the welfare of our students, faculty, and staff."

The trustees were expected to weigh whether to appeal the Middle States Commission on Higher Education' decision not to accredit BIC as well as other alternatives. Only accredited organizations can receive federal financial aid. The downtown college enrolled 474 undergraduates and 19 graduate students in the spring.
