UNL high school course
receives full accreditation
There is no football team, no school
band or even a fight song, but the UNL
Division of Continuing Studies Indepen

4,500 schools in 19 states.
The North Central Association of Col

are outside Nebraska and another 40 per
cent are overseas.
NCA accreditation must be renewed

an effort by the university to make certain
that the potentiality for quality education
remains unimpaired, "McMahon said. NCA
membership assures the individuals served
through independent study that the school
has met those standards which good
schools consider imperative for effective
The school has been able to issue a Class
