College Of St. Joseph Placed On Probation For Not Meeting Standards

The College of St. Joseph in Vermont has been placed on probation. According to reports, the New England Association of Schools decided to place the Vermont school on probation because its financial resources are not meeting standards. The College of St. Joseph learned of its probation on July 31, with enrollment and revenue issues becoming more prominent.
College president Jennifer Scott says the school is starting a fundraising campaign with the goal of raising $3.5 million in the next two years.
“I don’t think this came as a surprise to anyone, given how open we’ve been about the financial struggles that the school has had, given the conversations that were going on in the spring . and given the transition in leadership happening just 10 days before that hearing,” Scott said, via US News. “I don’t think anybody expected there would be any other decision.”
Earlier this year, a vote was held on whether to close the school, but trustees eventually decided to keep it open despite the issues.
“These are not easy decisions for the commission to make,” said Barbara Brittingham, president of the commission. “We are hoping that the College of St. Joseph can do well and get off probation.”
