    When will Ross be back in Dominica?

    Advertisements



    I know students are currently in Knoxville and St. Kitts. Does anyone have word on when the students will be back on Dominica?

    Haven't heard. I would think September semester most likely. It will take some more time to get the island back up to snuff. Then again that is complete speculation.

    Do you know of any accreditation/regulatory issues the school might have if they remain too long outside of Dominica? I was speaking to a few of the students and the school wasnt too transparent about this.

    Ross students got an email from the dean saying they値l be there until December 2018 at least.

    Would there be any regulatory hurdles the school might have to stay in the US for this long? I知 concerned because I値l be attending in the fall.

    I have no clue about regulatory hurdles. Would have to talk to Ross about that.

    Ross obtained an extension on their ability to operate within the confines of the US borders. This extension was only extended till Dec 18'. Beyond that, Ross would be subject to either, A) renewal of license to remain in the US; B) go back to Dominica; C) if the island is not ready, go back to the ship docked in St. Kitts; D) go to another island; E) lose accreditation and be unable to have financial aid available for its students (this is INCREDIBLY unlikely). I would imagine the most likely scenario is B, but if the island is not ready, A is a definite possibility.
