Nebraska's Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education (CCPE) is the state constitutional agency tasked with administering Nebraska's higher education system. A letter from the CCPE dated June 23, 2011, confirms NMC is authorized to operate in the state of Nebraska "on a continuing basis" and exempt from recurrent authorization. According to Neb. Rev. Stat. § 85-2403(2), authorization to operate on a continuing basis means "approval by the commission to operate a postsecondary institution" in Nebraska "without a renewal requirement." Furthermore, "once such authorization has been issued it continues indefinitely unless otherwise suspended, revoked, or terminated...." See Neb. Rev. Stat. § 85-2403(2). This authorization includes those authorizations previously deemed to be effective as of May 5, 2011, pursuant to the Postsecondary Institution Act for private postsecondary institutions that had been continuously offering four-year undergraduate programs with a physical presence in the state for at least twenty academic years.
