(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A St. Joseph college has been approved for University status.

American College of Technology (ACOT) will soon become American Business & Technology University.

The college, which is relocating to Wyeth Mansion on St. Maartens Drive, has been in St. Joseph since 2001, initially offering online retraining courses. ACOT now offers technical diplomas as well as bachelors and masters programs.

"Prior to obtaining a graduate program students would transfer to other schools that we have articulation agreements with to complete their higher level degrees," said Lute Atieh, Chief Operations Officer.

The name change is scheduled to go into effect on April 2.
