State Authorization

Nash Community College has been approved to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements.

State Authorization is a legal issue dealing with a college’s adherence to state requirements for colleges to secure authorization to offer instruction in that state. Compliance with individual state requirements is now part of the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, Amended 2010. Institutions offering distance education courses or programs must provide current and prospective students with the contact information for filing complaints with the college, its accrediting agency, and with the state agencies that handle complaints in the students’ state of residence.

Registration of students from other states in online courses may require additional time and information so please allow additional time for this process.

Students residing outside of the State of North Carolina while taking online courses from Nash Community College who desire to resolve an academic grievance or complaint should first follow Nash Community College’s Student Complaint Process.

NC Community College System, Nash Community College, and NC Post-Secondary Education Complaint Procedures Nash Community College (NCC) is a member of the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS). The Complaint Policy is available for all students to review, however, students are advised to begin the process at the institutional level. Contact:
