On September 16, 2014 The Vermont State Board of Education, upon the recommendation of The Vermont Higher Education Council and The Vermont Agency of Education, voted unanimously to Authorize NEBC as a Degree Granting Institution.

NEBC is taking steps necessary to build the program consistent with the standards of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, so that we will be well positioned to seek regional accreditation in the early years of operation.

“Accreditation is voluntary. It represents an institution’s willingness to abide by the Standards and to open itself regularly to examination by outside evaluators familiar with higher education. As such, accreditation is recognized as a symbol of accountability to the public.” (NEASC, FAQs)

In compliance with federal law please note, all credits earned at any institution of higher learning are transferrable only at the discretion of receiving school.
