NEW BRUNSWICK — Rutgers University’s accrediting agency will announce later this week that it has approved the school’s takeover of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, clearing one of the last major hurdles before the two institutions merge, campus officials said.

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the accrediting agency that oversees both schools, gave its blessing for the merger late last week and plans to announce its decision in the next few days, said Christopher Molloy, Rutgers’ interim provost for biomedical and health sciences, who is overseeing the merger planning.
