LCSC is currently accredited through the NWCCU, which was reaffirmed following a mid-cycle visit in October 2014. Since that time, LCSC has submitted two ad hoc reports which were accepted as meeting NWCCU’s expectations. Accreditation through NWCCU means that LCSC meets the Commission’s established standards of educational quality and effectiveness.

This announcement is being sent per the requirements of NWCCU Policy A-5, Public Notification and Third Party Comments Regarding Year Seven Evaluations. More information can be found at the NWCCU website ( or by contacting the NWCCU office at 445-558-4224.
