Gold Standard of Accreditation
NLC is the only regionally accredited higher education institution committed to educating union members and their families, union leaders and staff. Regional accreditation is nationally recognized as the gold standard of accreditation. This allows students to access federal student aid, transfer credits easily and move on to graduate programs at top schools. NLC accepts credits from a combination of courses done at other colleges, or through apprenticeships, military or other training. Students need to have at least 56 credits to be eligible for financial aid and scholarships.

Through the Bonnie Ladin Union Skills program, intensive hands‐on trainings that include weekend‐long residencies in Maryland are available year-round.
