DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — The acting chancellor of North Dakota's university system says he believes there is no chance that Dickinson State University will lose its accreditation.

The Higher Learning Commission, an arm of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, put Dickinson State on notice last year because of the school's problems with enrollment reporting, grade inflation and tuition discounts.

But Larry Skogen, who became acting chancellor of the state's university system in June, tells the Dickinson Press (http://bit.ly/12n4aGC ) that Dickinson State is a fine institution and will not lose its accreditation. He says the Higher Learning Commission will decide that the university has corrected the problems cited last year.

A Dickinson State official says a visit to the campus by the Higher Learning Commission in April seemed to be positive.
