NCU has been successful in obtaining initial regional accreditation from NCA today. I haven't learned the paticulars re: whether NCA will require students to have some form of residency. The initial goal of NCU was to offer doctoral education without residency requirements but through the use of video cameras mounted on students' computers. We will see. However, the big three DL schools will now have a viable contender to deal with at currently reasonable tuition. Congratulations are in order!
