Norfolk, Va. - Norfolk State University's probation status has been lifted, according to university representatives.

On December 8, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges told NSU's Interim President Eddie N. Moore, Jr. that the university has met all of the agency's accreditation concerns.

The university's Second Monitoring Report was submitted to the SACSCOC in September. A special committee visited the university and conducted an assessment of the school in October 13 through October 15.

"Today's news ensures that Norfolk State will continue toward improvement, growth and a culture of assessment," Interim President Moore said.  "Norfolk State University has emerged a much stronger institution; an institution well-positioned for a brighter future."

"So once we heard about that, it was kind of a scare! Because I was like, I'm almost finished and I want my degree to mean something and I know with accreditation that`s a big thing," says Reginald Land, an NSU Junior.
