The student newspaper called the move "an abrupt end" to a partnership that began in 2006 and was reaffirmed as recently as December. Yale said in a statement that the reason was "lower than anticipated enrollments," with only four students scheduled to participate in the program this autumn, although expenses were covered in the students' regular tuition.

The program was not without controversy. In 2007, a Yale biology professor teaching at the Beijing campus sent a widely circulated e- mail accusing Chinese faculty and administrators of tolerating widespread plagiarism.

The Israeli Defense Force is expected to approve the accreditation in the coming weeks.

The presidents of Israel's seven established universities wrote a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, asking him to stop the accreditation before the decision was announced, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. They said they feared it would take funding from other schools.

The presidents wrote that the move would deal a "fatal blow to the higher education system in general, and the universities in particular," according to Haaretz. …
