Accrediting agency lifts Norfolk State’s probation

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — There’s important news for Norfolk State, its alums and the community — The university is no longer on probation.

Their Accrediting Agency has Lifted a year-long Sanction on the university.

Interim President and CEO Eddie N. Moore Jr. was informed Tuesday, Dec. 8 that the school had satisfied all of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges’ concerns.

This was the outcome university officials were anticipating after the committee from the accrediting agency visited the campus in October.

The university had been on probation since December of 2014, largely for administrative and procedural matters that Moore says were unrelated to the school’s academics.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Moore said, “Today’s news ensures that Norfolk State will continue toward improvement, growth and a culture of assessment. NSU has emerged a much stronger institution, well-positioned for a brighter future.”
