Charlotte School of Law Statement on Department of Education Action on December 19, 2016
On December 19, 2016, the Charlotte School of Law was notified by the Department of Education that our application for recertification under Title IV of the Higher Education Act was denied and that our eligibility regarding federal financial aid would end on December 31, 2016. We strongly disagree with this determination and are evaluating all available options to challenge the decision, particularly the Department of Education’s mischaracterization of CharlotteLaw’s academic accreditation from the American Bar Association (ABA) and our representation of that status.
CharlotteLaw will continue to work closely with the ABA to seek clarification on this unprecedented decision and we will preserve all avenues of appeal and recourse available to us. We will continue to put the best interests of our students first and foremost as we assess our options going forward.
