Bomb suspect attended Southeastern U
University of Bridgeport officials say the man accused of parking a bomb-laden SUV in Times Square earned computer and business degrees in the school after having transferred from a college in Washington.
School officials say Faisal Shahzad graduated with a bachelor's degree in computer applications and information systems in 2000 and later returned to earn an MBA in 2005.
University of Bridgeport spokeswoman Leslie Geary says Shahzad was a transfer student from Southeastern University in D.C., which lost its accreditation last year.
She says the University of Bridgeport has notified federal homeland security officials and the FBI about Shahzad's attendance at the college.
