Northeast Lakeview College
|This article relies on references to primary sources. (July 2009)|
Northeast Lakeview College is an unaccredited community college located in Universal City, Texas. It is the newest of the five colleges in the Alamo Community College District. The mascot of Northeast Lakeview is the Nighthawk.
The college was established in 2007 after a successful $450 million bond election in November 2005. Classes began in August of 2008 with an enrollment of 4,000 students. Enrollment increased to 5,200 in 2009 and 6,511 in 2010 as new buildings provided available space. Projected full enrollment is 16,000.
Northeast Lakeview has twice been rejected for accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges and remains unaccredited. Because NLC lacks regional accreditation through SACS, students cannot obtain federal financial aid to attend NLC classes. A number of universities will not accept transfer credits from NLC.
Notable Events at NLC
On October 13, 2008, Alan Godin, a librarian at NLC, shot and killed Devin Zimmerman, another librarian, in the library at the Pat Booker campus. Godin was later convicted of first-degree murder.
