Norfolk State University has received notification from the United States Distance Learning Association (USDLA) that its Distance Education program has received the Quality Standards Certification. NSU, the largest public HBCU in Virginia, now becomes the only HBCU in the nation to be awarded this Certification and the first public University in the Commonwealth! The USDLA’s Quality Standards Team was unanimous in endorsing the University for this Certification.
"The award of Certification status by the United States Distance Learning Association is a solid accomplishment for Norfolk State University’s Distance Education Programs, its faculty, and staff. All parties can take pride in their effort and in this recognition bestowed by a professional peer group. Norfolk State University and the School of Extended Learning will have continued success in the implementation of the University’s Distance Education programs. The United States Distance Learning Association stands ready to support the University, in any capacity, as it translates its future Distance Education plans into sustainable institutional change and improvement that will be essential to the on-going success of the University."
