SIUE Closes in on HLC Accreditation Reaffirmation

February 2, 2015

The North Central Association’s (NCA) Higher Learning Commission (HLC) has recommended SIUE for reaffirmation of its accreditation through the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP). The University awaits the final decision from the Institutional Actions Council.

In all previous reviews, SIUE met all of the accreditation and compliance standards required. The HLC conducts Quality Checkup visits to institutions during the fifth or sixth year in every seven-year cycle of AQIP participation. The visits serve to verify the systems portfolio, assess progress on opportunities for improvement and examine federal compliance. They also determine whether the institution continues to meet the HLC’s criteria for accreditation, uses quality management principles and builds a culture of continuous improvement, as AQIP participation requires.
