WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. (AP) _ Several Webster University students studying abroad in London unexpectedly lost their federal financial aid this past school year due to the school’s violation of the Department of Education regulations.

A Webster spokesman says the school has contacted every student affected. The university has offered students several options, including transferring to other overseas campuses, applying for private loans or taking online classes.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports neither Webster nor the department would say exactly what rule the school broke.

The federal education agency notified Webster last fall that it was investigating a partnership that it held with Regent’s University London. The relationship allowed certain Regent’s graduate students to take classes administered by Webster.

A department spokesman said an inquiry into the colleges found their partnership violated certain, unidentified rules.
