March 17, 2021
Northeast Lakeview College (NLC) gains Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI) Designation. To earn this designation, institutions of higher education should have a student body of 25% or more Hispanics & a high percentage of students must be qualified for federal student loans or grants. HSI provides several added benefits, including recruiting and funding purposes. NLC can now apply for grants using HSI designation which opens the possibility for more funding opportunities. As an added benefit, HSI institutions wave the 25% for matching Federal Work-Study payments. NLC began working towards HSI designation after receiving its accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
