Congratulations NPU!

Receiving Candidacy* for accreditation is an incredible demonstration of the dedication, expertise, and teamwork of the Board of Directors, faculty, and staff. NPU also extends our thanks and appreciation to the NPU students and alumni who contributed many hours to this process.
