About Northeast Lakeview College's Accreditation


What is accreditation?


Accreditation is a process that ensures quality in post-secondary education. The process of accreditation requires the post-secondary institution to prove institutional quality based on standards required by the regional accrediting body. In Texas, post-secondary schools apply for accreditation through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). Accreditation signifies that an institution has an appropriate mission; has resources, programs and services sufficient to accomplish and sustain that mission; and maintains clearly specified educational objectives that are consistent with its mission and appropriate to the degrees it offers, and that indicate whether it is successful in achieving its stated objectives.
Northeast Lakeview College (NLC) has been approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board as a separate college, with the authority to offer college level courses. NLC is also an outreach site for San Antonio College (SAC), another of the five Alamo Colleges. Students have the option to determine their college of choice. Credits will be transcripted to the college designated by the student. Northeast Lakeview College is currently seeking accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to award Associate of Arts, Associate of Arts in Teaching and Associate of Science Degrees. For questions about the accreditation of Northeast Lakeview College, contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500. Normal inquiries about the institution, such as admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc., should be addressed directly to the college and not to the Commission’s office; the Commission is to be contacted only if there is evidence that appears to support an institution’s significant non-compliance with a requirement or standard
SACSCOC accreditation will allow NLC to offer Federal Financial Aid to its students. At this time, students registered at NLC only are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid; however, San Antonio College (SAC) students at NLC are eligible for this type of aid.

Transfer of Credits

The SACSCOC Position Statement on the Transfer of Academic Credit clearly states that the acceptance of credits from an unaccredited institution is allowed (and not a SACSCOC requirement), and under the purview of the receiving institution. NLC and San Antonio College (SAC) at NLC continue to offer a full array of courses to students in the greater northeast area of the Alamo service area. The section below lists those higher education institutions that have agreed, in writing, to accept NLC credits. New institutions are added as NLC students expand their transfer locations. Additionally, NLC students completing the Alamo Community College District’s Core Curriculum (approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in 2009) are guaranteed their credits will transfer. The transfer of NLC credits to all other institutions is handled on a case-by-case basis.
