North Greenville College has received accreditation from the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award bachelor’s degrees. Notice of the accreditation action came after a lengthy review process by SACS. Prior to this accreditation, North Greenville was in the candidate status to award these degrees.
In addition to the bachelor’s degree in Religion and Church Music, North Greenville College will begin offering new majors in Business Administration and in Mass Communications in the Fall of 1994. In the Spring of 1995, programs in Elementary Education, Early Childhood, and Music Education will be offered.
Dr. Sam Isgett, Dean of the College stated, “we are excited that we received a positive response from SACS and believe that the college will continue to grow and prosper following its current path and direction.”
North Greenville‘s enrollment had dropped to a drastically low figure of 329 in the Spring of 1991 and at that time faced severe financial difficulties. The Fall 1993 increase in enrollment of 25.6% helped to stabilize the institution as it continues the long road to economic recovery.
