The NNU Concurrent Credit Program (CCP) just received notification that it has received re-accreditation through NACEP (National Alliance Concurrent Enrollment Programs). The NNU CCP was first accredited in April 2006.  NACEP is the only national accrediting body for concurrent enrollment programs and has over 300 member institutions throughout the U.S. including 89 other accredited programs.  The NNU CCP remains the oldest accredited program in the State of Idaho and the second oldest private institution in the U.S. (behind Syracuse University).

The re-accreditation process involved multiple written documents over a year of analysis revolving around the five NACEP standards  (Curriculum, Faculty, Student, Assessment, Evaluation).  The effort was led by Dr. Dennis Waller, director, with the support of staff members Cindy Roberts and Joanna Vanderpool.

The NNU Concurrent Program began in 1999 and has expanded from two high schools to over 70 public and private high schools in 2012.  In 2012-13, the CCP had 2,500 individual students enrolled from high schools (public and private) in four states in the Northwest.

Questions about NACEP or the NNU CCP may be directed to Dr. Dennis Waller at 208-467-8257, or drwaller@nnu.edu.
