Virginia University of Lynchburg’s request to rejoin the United States Collegiate Athletic Association was denied.
The decision could dramatically impact the small college, which is in the midst of a massive recruiting campaign and readying to kick off a new summer camp Sunday.
The USCAA announced Monday it would admit six new schools — Bryant & Stratton, Davis College, Illinois Institute of Technology, Great Bay Community College and Florida National University.VUL was not included.
Matt Sims, chief operating officer of the USCAA, said in a phone message Tuesday the agency’s board of directors did not readmit VUL into the athletic association. The board met to vote on the matter last week.
VUL had been a member of the association until 2013, when, according to school officials, it failed to pay membership fees. The USCAA will not explain the reason for the school’s dismissal.
