Change in schedule -- RALLY 3 PM THURSDAY AT GHENT CAMPUS!
Students who were the victims of an unannounced rescheduling of application dates at New River College last week will now rally at the campus at Ghent at 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan., 24, rather than at the institution's Beckley campus.
Media from several news outlets will be on hand as well as members of the New River board of directors.
After being prompted to do so by The Register-Herald and other news sources for its unannounced rescheduling for the date of application, a spokesman for the college announced Friday that the school would accept students on a case-by-case basis.
Many students, however, are reticent to believe they will be accepted, as the spokesperson did not elaborate on the grounds upon which applications will be evaluated.
School officials on Friday admitted that the institution had neglecting to follow state law and institutional policy in changing its last date of registration from January 18 to January 11, thereby inflicting financial burdens on the student body.
The school calender of courses disbursed in December 2012 advertised the final date of enrollment as January 18, and the school website continued to publish that date until after images had gone viral on the Internet that afternoon.
Many students who attend New River College are young adults who must manage employment and family responsibilities in addition to attending to studies and coursework.

New River has decided to accept students, though plans to rally at the school Thursday are still a go pending their acceptance of more students.

Some of the students are being readmitted now, but not necessarily all. Our attorney has advised us to email our request for admission to ensure that there is a record of correspondence.
