Two more university choices coming to metro area

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Adults looking to further their education may soon have two new choices in the metro area.

The Mississippi Commission on College Accreditation has approved plans for a Tulane University satellite campus in Madison and a Strayer University campus in Jackson in 2010.

Both programs will cater to adult learners with classes primarily in the evenings and weekends.

The commission must determine that tulane and Strayer are not likely to have an adverse affect on the current market because of their focus on non-traditional students.

They have been given provisional authorization for a year.

The commission will then re-evaluate their programs and decide whether to grant full state approval.
