Accreditation

HLC Criteria for Accreditation

The Criteria for Accreditation are used by HLC to determine an institution’s accreditation status.

Prior to the Comprehensive Review, we are asked to present an Assurance Argument and examples of evidence that address each of the five Criteria and their Core Components.

The Criteria for Accreditation address five broad areas:

  1. Mission
  2. Integrity: Ethical and Responsible Conduct
  3. Teaching and Learning: Quality, Resources, and Support
  4. Teaching and Learning: Evaluation and Improvement
  5. Resources, Planning, and Institutional Effectiveness

Peer Reviewers will review the Assurance Argument prior to the Site Visit and use it as a basis for discussions, interviews and open meetings during the visit.
