Accreditation is a distinction earned through consistency in delivering the highest quality of programming offered in our industry. Acknowledgement from national accreditation agency Cognia and recommended by NCCRS, with credit reciprocity granted through CSU-Global speaks volumes about our adherence to guiding academic principles. We pride ourselves on our professional ethics and practices, using reliable data analysis to support our educational programs.
Advisors, chapter leaders, members, parents and the education community know that we are focused on elevating student achievement. This recognition acknowledges that the NSLS provides students with tangible and enriching learning opportunities and professional development programs that build leaders who make a better world.
The college credits students earn through this accredited curriculum are recognized by colleges and businesses around the world. The NSLS is a 501(c)3, a benefit organization and accredited education organization. The review process for these classifications is more rigorous to obtain than the Association of College Honor Societies, and certified by the U.S. Department of Education, the Internal Revenue Service and the national board of MctaB-Corps. We meet all the standards of a fully accredited educational organization by offering fully integrated online learning, on-campus coaching, and dynamic leadership development.
In addition to transferring college credit to their universities, students can also use them for digital badges, portfolios, official transcripts and professional profiles on employment sites such as LinkedIn and Glassdoor.
