Mayfield’s Mid-Continent University will find out in the coming weeks whether or not it will receive reaccreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and School after being placed on warning status last year.

If an institution loses its accreditation it will no longer qualify for federal student aid.

Graves County’s Mid-Continent University named William Drake Jr. as its senior vice president today.

Drake served as Kentucky’s Midway College president for a decade before operating his own consulting firm. Mid-Continent president Robert Imhoff says Drake will help the university meet federal government and accrediting agency regulations.
