    We would need another thread to discuss all the issues in California. I would touch on many of the points already made, but I won't beyond this post so I don't hijack the thread.


    Now we'll return to your regularly scheduled program: Northcentral University is Relocating . . .

    You bring good point.

    North Central University name will contradict with the location.

    Maybe they are going to modify the name as well?

    Exactly. It probably goes without saying that the name will have to change. That could probably be the subject of a whole other thread. :)

    Northcentral University was founded in 1996 by Dr. Donald Hecht.[5] In 1978 Hecht had established California Southern University, formerly known as Southern California University for Professional Studies (SCUPS).[6]:"

    So there is the California connection.

    There are currently three accredited schools in the US with "north" and "central" in their names:

    - North Central College, a B&M school in Naperville, Illinois
    - North Central University, a B&M school in Minneapolis
    - Northcentral University, a DL school currently in Prescott, Arizona

    If the name is generic enough to work in Illinois or Minnesota or Arizona, it would probably work in California as well -- especially for a DL school.

    Yes, except for one major difference: All the Northcentrals you list refer to the locations within their respective states (even Northcentral University in the north central part of Arizona, Prescott Valley).

    Take a look at a map of Minnesota. Is Minneapolis -- home of North Central University -- really located in the north central part of the state ? And it's not like the university is in the north central part of Minneapolis either -- it's on South Elliot Street.

    I just don't think anyone will be too concerned about the geographic accuracy of the name -- just as nobody cares that Wake Forest University is now 100 miles away from its original home in Wake Forest, NC. But who knows -- maybe NCU will relocate to north central San Diego.
