Ga. college sanctioned by accreditation agency

ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia Perimeter College has been sanctioned by an accreditation agency after an audit found the school was operating with a $25 million budget shortfall caused by chronic overspending and lack of financial oversight.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tuesday ( ) reported the college is still accredited, but has been warned because of the financial shortfall and lack of fiscal oversight.

School officials say they expect to have issues resolved within a year. In September, an audit by the University System of Georgia found the school's senior fiscal leaders either ignored or didn't notice the school's dire financial conditions.

Georgia Perimeter College is the state's fourth-largest public college. The school operates multiple campuses in suburban Atlanta, and offers online degree programs.
