Nebraska's Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education

National American U. applies to operate in Nebraska; public hearing scheduled for Dec. 28

(Update: The Commission at its January 20 meeting approved National American University's application.)

National American University of Rapid City, S.D., has applied to offer numerous degree programs in the state of Nebraska.

Nebraska statutes dictate that any out-of-state institution must earn the approval  of the Coordinating Commission before they can operate in the state. The Coordinating Commission on Dec. 28 will hold a public hearing about National American's application. The hearing begins at 9:30 a.m., in room #G in the State Office Building in downtown Omaha. All interested parties are invited to attend and present oral or written testimony.

National American, a for-profit institution, has applied to offer 10 degree programs in Nebraska: Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and Bachelor of Science (BS) in Applied Information Technology; AAS and BS in Information Technology; BS in Healthcare Management; AAS in Medical Assisting; AAS and BS in Criminal Justice; and an AAS and BS in Business Administration. If approved, National American plans to offer these degree programs at a Bellevue location.
