Northwest Indian College receives four-year accreditation

The Northwest Indian College on the Lummi Reservation in Washington state is now an accredited four-year baccalaureate school. The tribally chartered college was accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, ending several years of work to expand degree opportunities for students.

College officials have been working on obtaining baccalaureate accreditation since May 2007, when the commission named the school a candidate. NWIC has been an accredited two-year school since 1988, granting associate degrees and certifications.

The school’s only four-year program, a bachelor of science in native environmental science, also has been accredited by the commission.
