The ABHE Commission on Accreditation has placed Olivet University on warning for weaknesses in satisfying the following accreditation standard.
Standard 3; Standard 3 EE 6, 8 (Provide evidence that the institution demonstrates integrity in all of its practices and relationships with strict adherence to ethical standards and its own stated policies; Honest and open communication regarding compliance with agencies such as accrediting, licensing, and governing bodies; Integrity in all financial matters and in compliance with applicable legal and governmental regulations)
The institution retains accredited status with ABHE during this period of warning and will be subject to periodic monitoring, which may include progress reports and/or focused visits by Commission on Accreditation staff or evaluation teams. If weaknesses are not resolved within the time specified (usually one year), the Commission on Accreditation may (1) extend the warning for a second year, (2) place the institution on probation, (3) order the institution to show cause why its accreditation should be continued, or (4) withdraw accreditation. Warning is rarely extended beyond two years.
