University of Maryland gets accreditation 'warning' over Jordan McNair scandal

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - Maryland's flagship university is on notice again over its handling of the Jordan McNair scandal.

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education on Friday issued an accreditation "warning" to the University of Maryland, College Park over its handling of the death of McNair, a football star.

The committee initially put the university under review, after the Terps football player died of heatstroke during a football practice last year.

The commission is giving Maryland's Board one year to work out several issues ... including proof that it can clearly articulate its administrative structure.

The school would lose it's federal financial aid if it's stripped of accreditation.
