AMERICAN BUSINESS AND TECHNOLOGY UNIVERSITY
St. Joseph, MO

At its January 2022 meeting, the Commission approved a change of ownership for American Business and Technology University (ABTU) and extended the deferral action for an additional six months to review the implementation of the change of ownership and new financial information that would be available as a result of the change of ownership.

The Commission considered post-closing documentation and the application for renewal of accreditation at its June 2022 meeting. The Commission determined that the information provided by ABTU during the course of an eighteen-month deferral period has not demonstrated that the institution is in compliance with DEAC Standards. Accordingly, the Commission directed ABTU to show cause as to why accreditation should not be withdrawn.
