    I'll reserve judgment until DEAC publishes the next list of accreditation actions.

    But I'm not going to join the dedicated group of individuals who have held their collective breath these past few years.

    DEAC notifies the school about 24 hours before it is published. NU received that notification yesterday at 4 pm Central Time.

    Well I don't mind saying that I didn't believe they could/would get accredited. It's good news for them and everyone else. One thing that we've always said is that new accreditation = price increase. It will be interesting to see what happens in this case.

    Congratulations to Nationsuniversity. Well done. The university has generally been well spoken of in terms of academic rigor, transferability to accredited colleges, etc. DEAC has toughened accreditation standards over the last few years and I like their new leader.

    I think most people were not necessarily unsupportive of Nations but it has been a long process that involved them withdrawing a couple of times and other administrative issues that kind of burned people out.

    As with University of the People....great idea and potential to impact many people.

    Another Critic! It was" NationsU isnt Accredited". Now, you are still carrying endless and fault finding attitude.

    For a journey that started over 5 years as much as i can remember. Come on, show some love, Neuhaus!

    Congrats to you and all the other NU students. I would suggest wrapping up your degree as soon as you can before the tuition goes up.

    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."
