MARSHALL, TX – The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) has notified Wiley College of its probation sanctions being removed.
Wiley College launched and achieved a strategic set of actions that led to increased fundraising and effective finance practices. As a result, SACSCOC found that Wiley College has met the criteria for accreditation and has significantly strengthened the college’s fiscal health.

“Wiley College stand firmly on its 148+ year foundation and continues to demonstrate excellence despite this previous obstacle. The removal of probation sanctions signal that we are a community of educators who believe that Wiley College is significant to the higher education landscape and worked hard to secure our future. I am extremely proud of the Wiley College family, who has steadfast in their actions and communication. The campus community came together to secure Wiley’s future through their actions, despite being in a global pandemic,” said President Herman J. Felton, Jr., J.D., Ph.D.
