Franklin University officials say they've received approval from the Higher Learning Commission to make Urbana University a branch campus starting in August.

Under the shift, Urbana will retain its name and will offer new academic programs. Its probation status will also be lifted. Franklin University acquired Urbana and its assets in 2014 amid financial troubles.
