Accrediting Agency Lifts Sanction on Norfolk State

by Diverse Staff

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) has notified Norfolk State University that it has satisfied all the agency’s accreditation concerns and that it will be removed from probation status. NSU Interim President Eddie N. Moore Jr. was notified of the decision as he attended the agency’s annual meeting in Houston.

The university had been placed on probation in December 2014, primarily for administrative and procedural matters. An ASCSCOC Special Committee visited last month to confirm that the corrective actions outlined in the university’s Second Monitoring Report were being implemented. The Committee, satisfied with its assessment, made no further recommendations.

“Today’s news ensures that Norfolk State will continue toward improvement, growth and a culture of assessment,” said Moore. “Norfolk State University has emerged a much stronger institution; an institution well-positioned for a brighter future.”
