Neumont College of Computer Science (formerly Neumont University) is a for-profit technical institute [1] located in Salt Lake City, Utah. [2] [3] It was founded in 2003 by Graham Doxey, Scott McKinley, and Marlow Einelund. The school focuses on applied computer science and is currently accredited by the ACCSC, but is not currently accredited by ABET or any regional accreditation agency in the United States. [4]

Academics

Neumont's degree programs focus on the computer sciences offering three-year degrees in Computer Science, Technology Management, Software and Game Development, Web Design and Development, and Information Systems. [5] [6] The college is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges ( ACCSC) [7] to award associate's and bachelor's degrees in the computer sciences.

Recent history

From July through September 2007, Neumont briefly expanded to Virginia, leasing a suite in the Dulles Town Center mall. The expansion was cancelled after one academic quarter. [8]

Graham Doxey stepped down as Neumont's president in 2007, replaced by Edward H. Levine. [9]

In August 2012, Neumont University announced plans to relocate its academic facilities and student housing to 143 South Main Street, Salt Lake City, [10] an 11-story art deco building which formerly housed The Salt Lake Tribune. The school officially relocated to its downtown Salt Lake City location in June 2013, with the first new cohort of students beginning classes in October. [11]

On July 1, 2015, president Edward H. Levine stepped down and was replaced by Shaun McAlmont. McAlmont came to Neumont after working as CEO of Lincoln Educational Services, a New Jersey-based chain of for-profit colleges. [12]

On July 28, 2017, president Shaun McAlmont announced the institution's name change from Neumont University to Neumont College of Computer Science. [13]

On November 7, 2017, president Shaun McAlmont stepped down and was replaced by Dr. Aaron Reed. Reed has worked at Neumont for the past 13 years and was most recently the Chief Academic and Operating Officer for the college. [14]
