Western Oklahoma State College’s accrediting board has placed the school on probation following a review of a controversial online course reportedly favored by college athletes. The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools found the college’s 10-day accelerated online courses don’t meet quality and rigor standards required of compressed-format courses. As part of the probation, the board revoked approval for the college to offer accelerated online courses and programs. According to a public disclosure notice the board released Thursday, college officials must allow students who are enrolled in the so-called quick credit courses to complete those courses in eight-week or 16-week formats.
