Great, now what does this mean for students who have already graduated from this university long before these issues transpired?
Furthermore, when an employer is requesting transcripts are they now to contact University of Charleston directly?
I wish there were more answers for the inquiring minds who have long graduated from this institute.

Our degrees are okay as far as I can tell. I have raised the same question as to how to acquire a transcript in the future. Twice I created a thread posing this same question and twice it is removed. At the moment the transcript question is "up in the air". My best guess is they will outsource it to some company and we will have to pay around $25.00 to send a transcript to a potential employer. What pisses me off is having a degree from a derelict school.

For the record, I did call the HLC regarding revocation of accreditation of this institute and as was told to me (by the HLC) that loss of accreditation is not retroactive and that if you have graduated from this institute beforehand you have graduated from an accredited institution.
That is good to hear, but still what red flags does this raise for potential employers when obtaining records/transcripts from an institute that no longer exists?
Again, where can post graduate students get answers for these inquiries?

There is another thread on here called MSU and Transcripts in the Future. Read post #3.

According to HLC and other institutions/agencies, a third-party will be handling your transcripts. You can visit mountainstate.edu and it will discuss the Clearing House and what it does.

Thank you for the prompt reply. I still hope all would be well for post grad students regarding those of whom successfully graduated from this institute.
To all of those of whom have already done so congrats on the sacrifice of time, effort, and of course work ethic that it takes to obtain a good education in the first place.
Unfortunately, so much of the leadership principles in which some of these programs offered within this university (OL/MSSL) have sadly overlooked and underestimated the true meaning of effective leadership.
I will not blog on this sight to bash any one person (or persons) for the demise of this once thriving institution. However, I will say that leadership (effective leadership that is) has been sorely overlooked and underestimated on behalf of greed, prestige and outright arrogance by the head of this organization in addition to a great deal of staff as well.
As the saying goes, "Too many chefs spoil the soup." And in this case there are no exceptions!
