Nicholls State accreditation warning lifted

Posted: Updated:
THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - Nicholls State University says its accreditation warning has been lifted.

The Daily Comet reports the school made the announcement Tuesday.

The warning was issued in June 2013 by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission and concerned the institution's number of faculty and education success.

The university is now gearing up for the next phase of its ongoing accreditation process.

Dr. Bruce Murphy, Nicholls president, said the warning was lifted after the university provided additional documentation regarding student learning outcomes and demonstrating sufficient faculty oversight of programs.

Accreditation is essential to students for access to various forms of financial aid, transfer of credit to other institutions of higher education and recognition of their degrees. For faculty, accreditation is necessary to access most research funding.
