recognition. A notice published in the Federal Register on December 24,
1998 (Volume 63, page 71275) invited interested third parties to
present written comments on agencies scheduled for review at the May
1999 meeting of the National Advisory Committed on Institutional

accrediting agency whose interim report is scheduled for review at the
May meeting. The name of that agency is included at the end of this
notice. This notice also extends the deadline for interested third
parties to submit written comments, only for the agency named in this
notice, from February 8, 1999 to March 15, 1999. All other provisions
of the December 24, 1998 Federal Register notice remain in effect.
