With NCNM continuing to grow on every front, the news has been fast and furious the last few months. This spring, the college awarded degrees to 167 students, its largest class ever. Enrollment is also its highest ever, at 635 students. Also, in October NCNM received approval from accreditors to become a university. Much remains to be done before the school makes that transition, including settling on a new name. The announcement came on the heels of approval and formation of a new School of Undergraduate & Part-Time Studies earlier this year, with classes to begin in fall 2016.
