A Baptist college in Northern Wisconsin is asking state officials to take another look at whether they're students can be considered for certain types of financial aid. Northland International University has been frozen from state resources in tuition and minority grants for the past two years, according to Financial Aid Administrator Mandy Mclain. She says Northland is accredited through an association of Christian colleges that is federally recognized but the state's Higher Educational Aids Board requires a regional accreditation.
Of the 600 students, more than 500 of them try for some type of financial assistance, meanwhile faith carries them along.
"Whether the state provides the money or not, God will eventually provide a resource for my students to get in and pay for their schooling," says Mclain.
Northland's motion has been tabled until October when the HEAB may reconsider its categorization of the school.
