Marygrove College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), an independent corporation and one of two commission members of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), which is one of six regional institutional accreditors in the United States. The Higher Learning Commission accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region.
Maintaining HLC accreditation is crucial to our ongoing operation in that it demonstrates the quality of our processes and services, and provides evidence of the excellence of our educational programs to our stakeholders. Accreditation enables us to hire highly qualified faculty and staff members; it enables our students to receive financial aid and the other services they deserve in their pursuit of a Marygrove College education. We have begun preparing for the next HLC comprehensive evaluation, scheduled for Spring 2017, by forming an Ad Hoc Organizing Committee of faculty and administrators.
We will be using the Open Pathway model to establish that Marygrove merits reaffirmation of accreditation.
