MORGANTOWN (AP) — West Virginia University has implemented record-keeping changes recommended by a consultant in the wake of a 2007 degree scandal.

These changes include creating a registrar position to oversee records and record-keeping policies and designating one person at each college, school and academic department to oversee their unit's record keeping.

The university hired the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers to review its record-keeping following revelations that WVU improperly awarded a retroactive master's degree to Heather Bresch in October 2007. She is the daughter of former Gov. and now U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin.

Senior associate provost Russ Dean tells The Dominion Post that the association's recommendations are in place and functioning well.
