The move means Morris Brown can offer federal financial aid for the first time since 2002, when federal administrators cut off the spigot as the college wallowed in debt and was being investigated.

The former president and financial aid director each pleaded guilty to embezzling money because they diverted federal funds to pay for college expenses.
