HLC Reaffirmation of Accreditation, 2024-2025

MSU is up for reaffirmation of accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), which happens every ten years. This process includes a reaffirmation narrative, due Oct. 7, 2024, and a two-day site visit (Nov 4-5, 2024). We will be reviewed to determine whether we still meet each of the HLC’s five criteria and the Department of Education’s Federal Compliance policies. 

HLC Working Group Team Members will be responsible for researching, interviewing, and collecting evidence for our reporting to the HLC. The work will begin in Fall of 2023.
