BECKLEY (AP) - Mountain State University's bid to regain its accreditation has been denied.

The rejection this week by the appeals panel of the Higher Learning Commission is the final word on the matter, according to the Beckley Register-Herald. It is not subject to appeal.

The board of the commission in June voted to yank Mountain State's accreditation, based on leadership, organizational and integrity issues.

The commission has approved the University of Charleston's expansion to Mountain State's facilities in Beckley and Martinsburg. UC had taken over both campuses so students could complete their degrees after Mountain State lost its accreditation.

Mountain State was founded in 1933 as Beckley College.
