Wikipedia definition: The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) is an independent, non-profit membership organization recognized by the United States Department of Education since 1952 as the regional authority on educational quality and institutional effectiveness of higher education institutions in the seven-state Northwest region of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.

The agency is still the regional accrediting agency for the Pacific Northwest states, as CHEA recognition is not required in order for accrediting agencies to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.The Commission oversees regional accreditation for 156 institutions. Its decision-making body consists of twenty-six Commissioners who represent the public and the diversity of higher education institutions within the Northwest region.The organization traces its history to 1917 when the Northwest Association of Secondary and Higher Schools was formed. In 1974 the association changed its name to the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges, which included two divisions, one being the Northwest Association of Colleges and Universities. The Northwest Association of Colleges and Universities split from the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools to create two separate organizations in 2002, changing the name of the organization to the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

How are US diploma in India ratedasks theHC: Seeking clarity on the equivalence and authenticity of an American high school diploma awarded by Indian institutions, as it could have a bearing on the academic future of hundreds of students, the Punjab and Haryana high court has asked the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) to explain the nature of appraisal undertaken for issuing such certificates."The AIU shall file an affidavit through competent officer about the nature of appraisal undertaken for issuing equivalence certificates for diplomas from institutes run in India, but accredited to foreign accreditation commissions such as North West Accreditation Commission (NWAC), USA," ordered Justice K Kannan while hearing a case.Justice Kannan also asked AIU to produce proof that North West Accreditation Commission was authorized by the US state department of education to offer accreditation elsewhere."The association shall also give details of equivalence certificates on the basis of which any student has taken admission in other professional courses like MBBS and engineering," directed the HC.The matter had reached the high court through a petition filed by Ludhiana-resident Anmol Sharma, who was seeking admission to bachelor of homoeopathic medicine and surgery (BHMS) course in Guru Ravi Dass Ayurvedic University, Hoshiarpur, on the basis of an American high school diploma obtained by him from Shivalik Senior Secondary School, Jalandhar. The diploma was stated to be prescribed by the NWAC, USA.The university had initially given provisional admission to the petitioner for session 2013-14, but later issued an order on June 6, 2014, canceling Anmol's admission on the ground that he had acquired Class XII certification from an institution that was not approved or recognized by the Central Board of School Examination (CBSE).In its orders, HC has also asked the petitioner to secure sufficient information about credibility of institutes offering such diplomas, the number of students studying in the school and details of persons who have obtained admission in any other professional college in India after studying there.
