Baltimore International College
will file a "request for reconsideration" with the Middle States Commission, the agency that is taking away the college's accreditation Aug. 31.
The request asks that about 100 students who are close to completing a culinary or hospitality degree be allowed to complete the work this fall. The remaining students would be given the opportunity to finish at an accredited institution that would merge with BIC.
The college said Monday that it "is in conversation" with two out-of-state institutions about a merger.
The reconsideration is not an appeal of the decision by the Middle States Commission, which criticized the downtown school for failing to measure academic performance, retain students and raise funds.
